The video depicts a sexual act between an adult male and a minor, whom authorities believe was 6 years old at the time. Moore is expected to be extradited from Alabama.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Alabama are conducting an ongoing criminal investigation surrounding the sexual assault of a child and the distribution of a video depicting the assault.

"We're definitely glad he's in custody, " Walker told AL.com.

A man from Alabama was arrested in connection to a child pornography video posted on Facebook last week that went viral.

Walker said the video is not a recent video. Also, call law enforcement immediately, but do not share the post or video with the law enforcement agency.

Authorities say this situation is more serious than most. "If you are in possession of (the video), no matter your good intentions, that is also a felony".

"In addition to investigating the circumstances of the assault, investigators are working to determine how and by whom the video was shared", Garrett said.

Tips poured in from all over the world, she said. Walker said Tuesday she wasn't aware of any relationship between Washington and Moore, but that investigators are pursuing all leads. Authorities found several electronic devices but couldn't locate Moore.

State Bureau of Investigation Lt. Brooke Walker says Moore's fiancee was arrested Monday night and is not cooperating, according to the Associated Press. Police told WSFA Moore's fiance has been charged with interfering with the prosecution. He is being held on a $100,000 bond at the Montgomery County Detention Facility.

Prosecutors in MI say the assaults occurred in Detroit and at Moore's home in Alabama.

The warrant involved former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and was renewed three times since October 2016. The release could come despite the FBI's "grave concerns" and the Justice Department's objections.

He faces multiple pending charges in Alabama as well as active warrants in Detroit, where police accused him of assaulting three girls.

The assaults are alleged to have occurred in Detroit between 2011 and 2017. "It is a felony and we will prosecute", Starke said. Task Force investigators focus on identifying those involved in child pornography via the Internet and other related crimes that victimize children.

"It's picked up viral status on social media and people are blindly sharing it in the interest of trying to identify the suspect and the child", Edwards said.

Contact local law enforcement immediately and report the photos and/or videos to Facebook.

Police are warning residents to stop its circulation by deleting it and reporting the account that sent it to you on Facebook.

Over the weekend, social media giant Facebook warned its users o about continuing to share the pornographic video.

Facebook itself advised users to report the video and delete it if they see it.

Child pornography is a form of child sexual exploitation.

Alabama authorities are also looking at what contact Moore has had with children during his time in Alabama and are working with MI authorities. Are we looking to do that?

Moore's wife was also taken into custody by the police but she refused to cooperate.
