    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations agents are helping in the search to identify victims of an alleged child exploitation case involving a Boy Scouts of America official.

    Thomas Close, 40, is charged with production of child pornography. Close, who worked with the Boy Scouts' swimming program, is accused of secretly recording boys changing clothes after they swam.

    The alleged crimes are believed to have occurred between 2011 and 2018 in Ohio. Close was arrested in 2018 and remains in jail.

    Anyone who believes that they or their children are victims are encouraged to email their contact information to HSI at HSI-CLOSE-Investigation@ice.dhs.gov.
