Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation stated that a former Mansfield resident is wanted in connection with terrorist activities.
The organization, while launching a regular media campaign to help find the suspect Ahmad Abousamra, will also be using Facebook and Twitter in a social media campaign that has since gone viral.
"Knowing that the public is the FBI's best ally in finding fugitives, we're requesting their assistance to locate Ahmad Abousamra," said special agent in charge of the FBI's Boston division Richard DesLauriers.
The FBI also stated that they will "limited advertising on a social media site to reach an overseas demographic."
"We believe publicizing Abousamra's photo and characteristics will lead to a tip about his whereabouts and, ultimately, to his arrest," DesLauriers said.
