(WTXL) - The FBI is asking for help identifying a woman who could have critical information about a child victim in an ongoing sexual exploitation investigation.

The woman, known only as Jane Doe 39, can be seen in a video with a child who is being sexually exploited.

Further investigation revealed that the images have surfaced elsewhere online, said Special Agent Susan Romash, who investigates child exploitation cases as part of the FBI’s Violent Crimes Against Children program.

In the video, the woman can be heard speaking Vietnamese. A loose translation of what she is saying is "You can't play with this."  

“Our hope,” Romash said, “is that someone will recognize this individual’s face—or her voice—and come forward with information.”

She is described as an Asian female, likely between the ages of 25 and 35, with long black hair. She is wearing a white, yellow, blue, and red floral dress. 

The video was first noted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in April 2016. 

Anyone with information can submit a tip online or call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

No charges have been filed in this case and officials say the pictured individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
