The FBI issued a nationwide plea for help Tuesday in finding an unidentified man in connection with a young girl seen in photos being sexually abused — abuse that the agency said may be continuing after more than seven years.

Images of the man — who has a tan complexion and dark hair and is likely to be 30 and 45 years old now — were first recorded by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in January 2008, the FBI said.

Recent visual enhancements of the photos show him wearing a silver ring on his left ring finger. The victim was described only as a prepubescent blonde girl who was wearing blue and white Velcro Nike tennis shoes in the seven-year-old photos.

The FBI said nothing else is known about the man. It asked anyone with information about him a tip at or to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
