WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI has released video taken at a hotel of a missing 8-year-old and the man she is believed to be with.
The FBI says surveillance footage released March 25 on the agency's YouTube page shows Relisha Rudd and 51-year-old Kahlil Malik Tatum. Agents said in a news release that the footage was recorded Feb. 26 at the Holiday Inn Express in northeast Washington.
D.C. Police continue to search for Relisha, who was reported missing last week, and Tatum, who is charged with killing his wife, Andrea Tatum in Maryland.
The video shows Relisha and Tatum walking down a hallway. Relisha is wearing pink boots and a purple Helly Hansen jacket with white stripes.
The body of Andrea Tatum, 51, was found March 21 in a motel room in Oxon Hill, where Prince George's County officers had gone to assist the Metropolitan Police Department in its search for Relisha.
Andrea Tatum, who police said had sustained an apparent gunshot wound, was pronounced dead at the scene.
On March 21, police found the unoccupied truck described in an Amber Alert for Relisha parked in Chapel Oaks in Prince George's County.
A spokesman for D.C. police told The Washington Post March 21 that officers don't know if Relisha is on foot with Kahlil Tatum, or in another vehicle.
D.C. police said Kahlil Tatum, an employee at a homeless shelter where Relisha’s family had stayed for 18 months, was known to the family, The Post reported.
D.C. police notified Richmond authorities on March 21 that they had reason to believe Relisha might be in the greater Richmond area.
Relisha is about 4 feet tall and weighs about 70 to 80 pounds.
