The FBI is asking for the public's help to locate a woman who may have "critical information pertaining to the identity of a child victim in an ongoing sexual exploitation case."

According to the FBI, the woman, referred to as Jane Doe 37, appears in a video produced in 2012. In the video, authorities say that audio from the film "The Land Before Time" can be heard. The video was brought to the attention of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2014.

Jane Doe 37 appears to be a white female with brown hair and glasses, the FBI states. Since the images are several years old, the woman may have a different appearance.

Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call the FBI's toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).

The investigation is part of the Operation Rescue Me and Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP), which is a partnership with the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

ECAP uses "in-depth image analysis to identify the child victims depicted in child exploitation material, while ECAP seeks national and international media exposure of unknown adults (referred to as John/Jane Does) who visibly display their faces and/or other distinguishing characteristics in association with child pornography images," according to the FBI.
