The FBI has released images of two women that are connected to the sexual abuse of a seven-year-old girl, likely in San Bernadino County, Calif.

Referring to them as "Jane Doe 25" and "Jane Doe 26," the women appear to be between the ages of 18-35. One of them may be Hispanic, with dark hair and dark eyes, while the other is white with dark hair and dark eyes. 

Though the women are not seen abusing the girl in the images, they may be able to lead authorities in the direction of the unidentified male who abused the girl.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was first made aware of the images in August 2012. The images are still circulating on child pornography sites.

"The victim is believed to be a young child enduring abuse currently and over the past several years by an unidentified male," the FBI said.

"Jane Doe 25 is described as a white female, likely between the ages of 18 and 25, with dark hair and a wing tattoo covering most of her back. Jane Doe 26 is described as a possibly Hispanic female, likely between the ages of 25 and 35 with dark hair and brown eyes."

The young girl was seen wearing a San Bernadino County junior fire marshal's hat and in one clip was seen swimming at a hotel pool in Desert Hot Springs. 

"In some of the images the victim is seen swimming in a pool in the hotel, in the Desert Hot Springs area. We are hoping someone's memory is sparked by these images and gives us a call. It has been successful in the past and hopefully it will be again," the FBI said.

They had recent success after releasing images of a man who was seen in videos sexually abusing a young girl. They knew the man was in America because a pretzel bag only sold in the country was seen in the room of one of the scenes. He earned the nickname "Pretzel Predator."

A day after they released the images, David Stevens, 58, of Salinas, Calif. was arrested.

Anyone with information about these women is asked to call the local FBI office or the FBI's toll-free line at 800-CALL-FBI or 800-225-5324. Tips can be submitted online at
