The Clarksville Police Department says it is investigating cases from over the weekend associated with the video.

The release said: "This video surfaced and has gone viral in a short period of time". "There is no objective to forward, share, or view the video in an effort to catch the perpetrator".

Investigators said they believed Moore was a flight risk and needed to be brought into custody. "If you are in possession of (the video), no matter your good intentions, that is also a felony".

The child appearing in the viral video is safe, authorities said.

"She chose him over her children", Walker added. Investigators say she is not cooperating with police.

Crime Stoppers executive director Tony Garrett tells Al.com that more charges are expected. Authorities found several electronic devices but couldn't locate Moore.

Lt. Brooke Walker with the State Bureau of Investigation's Special Victims Unit is scheduled to provide details about the case at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. She is charged with interfering with prosecution. He was transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he was being held under a $100,000 bond. It wasn't immediately clear whether either had an attorney. Worthy says the abuse happened at a home in Detroit, and at Moore's home in Alabama.

Moore is also wanted in Detroit for the assault of three young girls.

"It's outside the state of Florida, so, therefore, we are comfortable saying the victim and the suspect are not now in Orlando and it did not originate here", Edwards said.

Edwards, a member of ICAC, Internet Crimes Against Children, said the video first emerged in August of 2017.

With the sharing of videos on social media as the norm, law enforcement officials do point out that sharing the video even to alert them is considered illegal. Authorities say he was not involved in the creation of the video, but that he shared it. Some law enforcement agencies are advising users to report the video or image to Facebook immediately, then delete it.

Do not share the video to the department's Facebook page and do not disseminate the video using Facebook Messenger.

If you share the video, you are guilty of distributing child pornography.

Facebook itself advised users to report the video and delete it if they see it.

Virginia Beach police are warning residents of a child pornography image that is circulating on the internet. Are we looking to do that?

Law enforcement also took Moore's wife, Tonya Moore, into custody at the home.
