CLEVELAND (WJW) -- An investigation by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force resulted in the arrest of a Canadian man. Now, authorities are looking for other victims.

Carl Kirk, 73, of Mississauga, chatted with undercover Ohio ICAC undercover agents who he believed were children and expressed interest in meeting for sexual activity, according to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. The conversations happened between March and April.

“This case is a prime example that shows our children are not only targeted here locally, but internationally as well,” prosecutor Michael O’Malley said in a news release. “The strength of the ICAC Task Force lies in our ability to partner with local, state, federal and international law enforcement agencies to stop the online exploitation of children whenever these offenders try to cross state lines or international borders.”
