WSFA-TV reports that 44-year-old Germaine Moore turned himself into Millbrook Police around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. It shows the girl performing oral sex on an adult. No charges have been filed in Alabama.

Meanwhile, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office in MI announced Monday evening Moore is facing eight different charges in Detroit, including four counts of criminal sexual conduct. Facebook will notify the proper authorities when an inappropriate video is reported.

Authorities believe there are more victims, meaning additional charges for Moore. Investigators say the children were left in his auto while their mother was working.

"The victims live in Michigan", Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters Tuesday.

Tips poured in from all over the world, she said.

A spokesman for Central Alabama CrimeStoppers said you should report the video to the social media platform and call your local law enforcement office. And viewing is also a crime.

Authorities are actively searching for Moore.

Walker says Moore's fiancee was arrested Monday night and is not cooperating. She is charged with interfering with prosecution. He was taken to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he was being held under a $100,000 bond, a report said. It wasn't immediately clear whether either had an attorney. "It is alleged the defendant sexually assaulted the children at this mother's home in Detroit and at his home in Alabama".

The Wayne County, Michigan prosecutor's office told FOX Moore sexually assaulted the three girls over a six-year period from 2011 to 2017. "We're working it. It's a priority", Walker said. Task Force investigators focus on identifying those involved in child pornography via the Internet and other related crimes that victimize children.

Garrett said people shared the video because they wanted to help identify the suspect.

Craig said police in the Detroit area were aware of the video's circulation, but initially were "unaware that the actual suspect" had a connection to Detroit.

Joplin police joined other law enforcement agencies across the nation Monday in warning the public not to forward a child pornography video that has been making the rounds on Facebook Messenger.

It isn't totally clear how far the messages have actually spread - numerous police statements seem pre-emptive, and it's possible that the spread of the video is more limited than the widespread warnings might suggest.
