The Newark office of the FBI is asking for the public’s help in identifying possible victims of child pornography.
The FBI says that the potential victims attended two camps in New Jersey from August 2019 through March 2022.
FBI agents arrested 69-year-old William Mickel on Thursday and charged him with distribution and possession of child pornography.
Authorities say that Mickel placed hidden cameras in the bathrooms at Camp Winnebago in Rockaway and at Camp Allamuchy in Stanhope. They say that there could be victims from multiple cities across the country.
“The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of the federal crimes it investigates. Identified victims may be eligible for certain services and rights under federal and/or state law,” authorities wrote in a statement.
Anyone who attended or has children who attended the camps is urged to visit the FBI’s website and fill out a questionnaire.
The FBI says it will contact parents if it is determined that their child has been identified as a victim.
