The FBI is seeking information about a man it calls the 'traveling bandit.'

The bureau says he's suspected of robbing at least seven banks in six states, including Florida, within the past three weeks.

Agents think the man will strike again in the near future.

They say he might be driving a white Ford Explorer or Expedition.

The FBI says he normally approaches a bank counter with a note demanding money and threatening a weapon. No one has been hurt during the heists, the bureau said.

Anyone with information is urged to call the FBI at (754) 703-2000, your local police department or contact your nearest FBI Field Office.
