D.C.’s police chief says that the search for Relisha Rudd, a girl who has been missing since March 2014, will continue at the National Arboretum.
Lanier said that the search would cover “a pretty extensive area” at the Arboretum, including a body of water. The search team will comprise 60 people from the Metropolitan Police Department, the FBI, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and more, including divers and K9 officers.
Lanier said she called the news conference because police “want to let the public know we are continuing to follow up on leads … because we want those leads to keep coming in.”
Relisha Rudd was 8 years old when she disappeared. She was last seen March 1, 2014, in the company of Kahlil Tatum, a janitor at D.C. General, the homeless shelter where she lived with her mother and siblings.
