DC police are hoping someone can identify a man in a video as part of their investigation into the disappearance of Relisha Rudd, 8.

In the video, the man is stepping off what appears to be a Metro escalator, although police did not share the location. The man is wearing a black jacket and black gloves. DC Police says the man could have information in the missing child case and they are hoping to speak with him. 


Relisha was last seen March 1. Authorities have been searching for the little girl since March, after her school absences triggered an investigation. 

Her suspected abductor Kahlil Malik Tatum, was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in Kenilworth Park on Monday. Police continued to search the 700-acre park for signs of Relisha but found nothing, they said.

“While we’re all a bit relieved that we did not find find Relisha here the way we anticipated we would find her,” DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. “It’s heart-wrenchingly frustrating that we don’t have answers as to where she is right now.”

Anyone who recognizes the man in the video should contact police at (202) 727-9099 or text 50411.
