    Note that both Homeland Security and Immigration were involved. Perhaps the pictures of this boy were uncovered during the investigation?
    Bumping this because I do think it is related.

    Poppyfrock, this is making me ill too, as evidenced by the fact that I've been up since 7 a.m. and am still on the computer trying to figure out who this is.

    I really think this is connected to child pornography/sex trafficking.

    The look on that poor boy's face is chilling.

    Aviatrix...I hope you did not give yourself a headache banging your head on a wall..I misspoke...Of course facial features might make it easier to ID a person, what I got bent out of shape about is the people implying this guy suffers from FAS because his eyes are far apart and implying that he suffers from brain damage.

    I was thinking that someday, he might be found and it would be rude if he found posts alluding to him having FAS.

    Looks like that guy was captured. I can't see a date on it..

    Edit- here's a news story on it. He was captured March 8th (or at least the article was written then). http://www.wjla.com/articles/2012/03...ing-73556.html

    another article. http://www.modbee.com/2012/03/12/210...-on-child.html

    Wow. Very close in looks, IMO.

    Other than the earlobes, they look very similar, the other dofference I noticed in set 3 was the turned down corners of the mouth of Taylor where the mystery boys are straight, yet both look to be sad.

    I wonder if the angle would affect the way the corners of the mouth appear? I don't think it would have an effect on the earlobes though. I think both boys' earlobes stick outward a bit, but unidentified's seem to stick outward even more.

    Those two articles hit me so hard. I'm still wiping away the tears. How can people do this to children?

    There is a mug shot of the guy I found the article about yesterday -- Edward J. Wesser.
    http://host.madison.com/edward-wesse...a4bcf887a.html

    This story grows more horrifying by the minute. After reading the

    More info about Wesser:

    I pray to God these monsters are all caught and this young man is identified and found.

    I think that Poppycock's theory is probably very spot on. If the child sex sting is related to the case then these still shots could have come from an image found on a computer, or could have been something that Wesser emailed during the 2.5 years that he was being investigated. It's possible that Wesser received the video from someone else and only knew a rough geographic location where he lived.

    The image is certainly EXTREMELY close to Taylor Druyor, but the ears are shaped differently, which bothers me. It could be the quality of the video or the angle, and I'm so happy to see so many 'Sleuthers working so diligently to help this child, so I don't want to sound discouraging. Taylor was a runaway, so there are any number of circumstances that he could be involved in trying to survive on the streets.

    One of the things that stuck out to me was that ICE said the boy might be unwilling to seek help. That makes me think one of three things 1) he's being held in plain sight, but by a captor that he's unable to escape even for a few minutes 2) they have reason to believe he may be from another country and unable to effectively communicate or 3) they have reason to believe there are special needs/circumstances involved that makes it difficult for him to communicate.

    Like Poppy, my gut tells me these stills are from a video that contains some sort graphic act, which is why only brief stills have been released. There is no audio that might identify a regional or international accent, but perhaps ICE has that information.

    If this is a hostage situation and this child was kidnapped, or if he is a child being abused by his own family, what do you think of his haircut? To me, it looks professionally done, which might mean:

    * the video was made shortly after his abduction, while his hair was still short
    * whoever is holding him cuts his hair at home and has some skill at it
    * someone might take him out for professional haircuts but he has been too frightened to seek help while at the barber's

    I have been up all night trying to figure out where this poor young man might be.

    ICE says he may live in Minnesota or western Wisconsin, and it made me wonder why that might be important.

    I think I've figured it out - Lake Michigan. Take a look again at the picture of that young man, and see if you can visualize his surroundings as being on a boat. I showed the photo to a friend of mine identify the object behind the boy. Instead, he wanted to know whose boat this boy was on. Turns out my friend has lived and worked on boats for most of his teenage and early adult years.

    From the Minnesota/western Wisconsin area, it's a straight shot across Lake Superior to Canada. This may explain the involvement of U.S Customs and Immigration Services - the pornography may be filmed and/or transported from Canada to the U.S.

    Here is a map that shows the area I'm talking about:

    Maybe it's just sleep deprivation combined with the power of suggestion, but now that I look at the picture it really looks like this poor kid is on a boat. I'll see if I can find a photo of a boat that might match up with this photo.

    Here is a new story on this: http://www.cnn.com/2012/06/21/justic...ild/index.html
    New details:
    "...agents got the video through a lead in another investigation."

    "The video was online...." I added this just to clarify that these are not photographs taken by a camera with a flash.

    "The images show a boy between 13-19 years old and in a basement..."

    The only reason for their belief that he is from, or was in Wisconsin is because of his shirt.

    The video is believed to have been made within the last 2 years, but most likely the last 18 months based on the fact that the t-shirt was first marketed in July 2010.

    The article also states..."It is entirely possible this young man is not currently in Minnesota or Wisconsin, but either has a friend or relative in the area, or recently moved from one of those states."
