Relisha Tenau Rudd, 8, may be in need of medication.

The search continues for the missing 8-year-old D.C. girl. Police now say they've located the vehicle in which she was thought to be traveling.

Police say they found the white GMC truck in Hyattsville, Md. late yesterday. But the Amber Alert is still in effect as the Metropolitan Police Department and Prince George's County Police continue the search for Relisha Rudd.

The 8-year-old girl was first reported missing on Wednesday. Yesterday, police found the body of a woman thought to be connected to the case at a motel in Oxon Hill.

Police describe Relisha as a black female, four feet tall, and 70 to 80 pounds. She was last seen by family February 26 at a homeless shelter in Southeast Washington where she was staying with her mother.

Police are asking for anyone who sees Relisha to call 911 or the MPD Command Information Center at (202) 727-9099.
