This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The FBI is asking for the public’s help in connection with a sexual exploitation investigation.

Officials say the case may be linked to Iowa because of a t-shirt worn by a child victim in sexually explicit photos. The images were first recorded by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February of 2003 but are still being circulated on the internet in child pornography rings.

The t-shirt worn by the child has “New Market Basketball” written on it. The shirt could help investigators discover the identity of the victim. Iowa has a town named New Market and eight other states have towns or schools with “New Market” in the title.

The FBI also hopes to identify two adult males who may know the identity of the sexual exploitation victim. The FBI says the men are not named as suspects in the case and have not been charged with any crime.

One of the men is white and 25 to 35-years-old with dark hair and glasses. The other is white and between 35 and 45-years-old with dark hair.

Investigators say a home visible in the images may help with the case. The home has yellow siding and an above ground pool.
