#AceNewsReport – Mar.12: The investigation was launched after a report from the United States National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

The report alleged a person suspected to be in Queensland was engaging in sexualised Facebook chats with children in the Philippines.
Police inquiries allegedly connected the 59-year-old to the account before AFP investigators executed a search warrant at a home in Caboolture on January 14.
Officers seized a laptop and a desktop computer at the scene for examination.
The man was charged with one count of using a carriage service to transmit indecent communications to persons under the age of 16.
The potential maximum penalty for the offence is 10 years in jail.
AFP Child Protection Operations Detective Superintendent Paula Hudson said the AFP worked with international partners, in order to stop people trying to access children online, before they could cause any harm.
“Our officers work tirelessly to hunt down offenders to ensure those seeking to access children for sexual offences online are prosecuted,” Detective Superintendent Hudson said.
“Offenders can target parents or carers for access to their children through social media and online child sex offenders may even offer money in order to abuse children online.”
Members of the public who have any information about people involved in child abuse and exploitation are urged to call Crime stoppers on 1800 333 000.
