A search of a District of Columbia park for a missing 8-year-old girl is a “recovery operation,” although police haven’t given up hope of finding the child alive, Chief Cathy Lanier said Thursday.
Relisha Tenau Rudd was last seen in the city on March 1 with Kahlil Malik Tatum, a janitor at the city homeless shelter where Relisha lived.
A day later, Tatum bought a carton of 42-gallon contractor trash bags at a store in Washington and was seen in the area of the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, Lanier said. Tatum, 51, continued to go to work after that and was seen throughout the city, but Relisha was not seen with him, Lanier said.
