Relisha Rudd, 8, went missing on March 1.
The foot search of a northeast D.C. park for missing 8-year-old girl Relisha Rudd is expected to resume today.
Although the foot search was suspended Sunday, teams of divers continued to search the ponds in Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens during the weekend for Rudd, who was last seen March 1 with Kahlil Tatum, a janitor at the city homeless shelter where she lived.
The search has been described by police as a "recovery operation," but there remains hope that the girl may be found alive.
Authorities began searching the park after they learned Tatum had spent time there after purchasing 40 gallon contractor grade black trash bags, a shovel and a bag of lime soon after the last sighting of Rudd.
Investigators also followed other leads, including the search of a Days Inn motel where Tatum stayed, which is located just a mile and a half from the homeless shelter and across the street from the store where the trash bags were purchased.
The FBI is offering a $70,000 reward for those offering information about the case that leads the agency to find Rudd.
