This undated photo combo of images provided by the Prince George's County Police Department shows Kahlil Malik Tatum. Prince George’s County Police said Friday, March 21, 2014, that Tatum, 51, of Washington, has been charged with killing his wife and may be traveling with an 8-year-old girl, Relisha Tenau Rudd, who has been reported missing.

Digital billboards along the East Coast from Georgia to Maryland are displaying photographs of a slaying suspect from the Washington, D.C., area and a missing girl police say could be traveling with him.

FBI spokeswoman Lindsay Godwin said Thursday the agency is "casting a wide net'' in looking for 51-year-old Kahlil Malik Tatum, who is charged with killing his wife in Maryland, as well as 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd, who was reported missing last week.

Authorities have arrest warrants for Tatum charging with murder in his wife's death and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

The body of 51-year-old Andrea Tatum was found March 20 in a motel room in Oxon Hill, Md., where officers had gone to assist Washington, D.C., police in the search for Relisha.
