Police are searching a park in Northeast D.C. for clues related to the disappearance of 8-year-old Relisha Rudd.
The FBI is scouring Kenilworth Park for any hints as to what happened to Rudd, who has been missing for a month. Police say she was taken by Kahlil Tatum, 51, who worked as a janitor at the homeless shelter where Rudd and her family were staying.
Law enforcement officials are looking for Rudd, and recently released surveillance footage of her with 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.
