Authorities in the Northern Marianas are looking for a man with a distinctive birthmark who they say could provide a potential lead in the disappearance of two sisters.

The FBI and the Department of Public Safety are looking for a man who has a very distinctive birthmark on his right cheek, is a Pacific islander, about 30 years old, with short clean-cut hair.

They say the individual is not a suspect but may have witnessed something relevant to the disappearance of 10-year-old Faloma Luhk and her 9-year-old sister Maleina.

The Department of Public Safety says it's already searched over 400 sites and followed over 100 leads in the search for the sisters.

They were last seen leaving their house on their way to a bus stop in on May the 25th.
