He has felony warrants in Detroit, Michigan. No charges have been filed in Alabama.

A man arrested in Alabama in connection with a sexually explicit video featuring a young girl is also charged in Detroit with sexually assaulting three young female relatives. Those charges include sexual assault of a child, distribution of a video of the assault and first-degree criminal sexual conduct, police said.

Germaine Moore, 44, of Millbrook, Ala., faces 11 felony charges. The children - who are now ages 9, 10 and 12 - were in Moore's custody and care from 2011 until 2017 while their mother worked, the prosecutor's office said.

Over the past few days, a video showing a sex act with a child has been shared on Facebook by many, in the effort to get the suspect identified and caught.

The VBPD has received "numerous" calls about the video, which is being disseminated on Facebook Messenger, according to a news release.

Garrett said nobody in the video has been identified yet, but police are investigating. Investigators say she is not cooperating with police. They are working to determine if the devices contain any illicit material.

Officers want to remind you that, even in a case where the child was still missing, it is illegal for you to share this video or any others like it. He is the children's paternal uncle, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office said. Authorities arrested her and charged her with hindering prosecution.

Washington was taken into custody late Monday afternoon by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force.

Germaine Moore and Tonya Moore were booked in the Elmore County Detention Facility.

At a news conference Tuesday, officials gave an update on the status of the investigation. "They should not be forwarding it. Let us do the investigation", Jones said.

A disturbing case out of Alabama has agencies across the country sending a strong warning to Facebook users.

If you know of any children in danger, please report it to your local law enforcement, state law enforcement, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Sharing said image is considered distribution and you could be criminally charged for doing so", the department said.

For now, the only people who should contact the Clarksville Police Department about this particular video are those who have shared or opened the video.
