WASHINGTON (WTVR) — An AMBER Alert was issued Thursday morning for a missing 8-year-old girl in Southeast D.C.

In an update late Thursday, Richmond Police said they believe the girl has been in Richmond, but can’t say if they still think she is here.

WUSA reports that Metropolitan police are searching for 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd, who was last spotted in the 1900 block of Massachusetts Avenue, SE.

Investigators originally believed Relisha may be with Kahlil Malik Tatum and Rickie Sheridan Lyles.

Originally police on Thursday morning said Relisha may be “in a White 1976 GMC truck MD tag 305015.”

The White GMC was located.

Prince George’s County police are assisting D.C. police in their search.

WUSA later reported that police were investigating the homicide of a woman in the 6100 block of Oxon Hill Road.

      Yes!!!…as you see no one cares…sad about a black child missing and the adult found dead was a relative of this poor baby…..and she was taking so she was cared for and loved….. So sad really…..

        Very true!!!? I have yet to find anything about Relisha Rudd on CNN. That shows you how much they care. That will not stop my from searching for this precious baby!

    I am so sad to read how nonchalant this report is about this little girl, sounds very uncaring and oh well’ish…This reporter needs to pay attention and put more caring into their report. I hope she is found safe and sound.

      I think the priority is to get the story out, not to convey empathy. I don’t know that the reporter comes off as uncaring though. I just hope the girl is found safe.

    This poor girl. He mother gave her to the janitor at a homeless shelter. Three weeks later, they inquire about the girl?! And only when the school comes to investigate why she hasn’t been in school? The mother is beyond unfit.
    that man was a predator, and that stupid mother just let a stranger take her daughter home because , “he was always buying her gifts.”?! I pray that she is alive and safe. The fact that he is on the run and murdered someone already does not bode well for the future.

    to say all amber alerts are due to poor parenting is the thinking of a Idiot ! And to the just don’t have any comment.I wish someone had told your parents that !

    That is my niece and her mother loves her with all her heart. So before you talk bad about her know the fase

      Let’s see if I’m getting this straight: Your aunt let your niece accompany a male non-relative to God knows where, and didn’t report her missing for 3 weeks? And the public is not to have an opinion about her mothering skills because we don’t know how much she loves her daughter? Right.

      My only hope is that your niece is found alive, unharmed, and soon!

        So true…for real like why ..when we know the world is full of pervs and he had previous inappropriate contact with the other siblings….your sister or whoever she is needs to be put away with him for allowing this to happen.. That’s child endangerment

      • Nico darby

        You’ll can say what you’ll want to say about my sister but I know her and I know how she feel about her kids
