The FBI is adding the man believed to be with missing 8-year-old Relisha Rudd to its wanted list, and say 51-year-old Kahlil Tatum should be considered armed and dangerous.

Law enforcement officials looking for Rudd, who's been missing from D.C. for a month, released surveillance footage of her Tatum. The video shows Rudd and Tatum walking down a hallway in the Holiday Inn Express, which is located in the 1900 block of Bladensburg Road NE. It's dated Feb. 26, the last day Rudd was seen.

Police believe the Relisha has been with Tatum since late February, and they say he posed as a doctor, telling her school's administrators over the phone that she was sick to explain her absence.

D.C. Police say they're asking the public to watch the video and urge anyone who may have seen either to contact them. The FBI is now offering a $70,000 reward for information about the case.

Tatum has been charged with murdering his wife and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
