WASHINGTON – Federal agents are trying to identify a woman they said filmed a long-form pornographic video with a victim who is just 4 or 5 years old.

On Wednesday the agents released a set of cropped images of the woman in hopes that somebody will recognize her.

Agents from U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations division have also taken the unusual step of getting an arrest warrant for the woman despite the fact they don’t know her identity.

ICE agents have successfully used this tactic once before in a case involving an Oregon woman. In that case, the “Jane Doe” suspect was caught with her husband in Salem after a member of the public recognized the picture agents released.

With this latest “Jane Doe” case, federal agents aren’t sure where she is, although they do believe she lives somewhere in the United States.

ICE spokesman Andrew Munoz said the suspect is a white woman likely between 23 and 29 years old. She has a medium build, brown hair with blonde highlights and hazel or green eyes.

She also had a tongue piercing with a white round stud and a pink dot.

ICE agents first heard about the video after they were contacted by the Danish National Police. The video had been downloaded by police officers in Denmark, Munoz said.

The video was compared to a national database for missing and exploited children, but agents did not find a match.

ICE agents urge anyone with information on the woman's identity or whereabouts to call the ICE tipline at 866-347-2423, or fill out an online tip at www.ice.gov/tips.
