8 Year Old Relisha Rudd Missing Since 2/26/14 in Washington, DC … Amber Alert Issued (Update: 51 Year Old Kahlil Malik Tatum Wanted in Andrea Denise Tatum’s Murder)(Update: DC Police: “We cannot ignore the possibility that he may have killed her.”)(Update: Dive Teams Search Waters of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens)
An AMBER ALERT was issued for Relisha Rudd on March 8, 2014; however, 8 year old Relisha Rudd has been missing since February 26, 2014 in Washington, DC. She was last seen Feb. 26 at the D.C. Shelter for Families on the grounds of the old D.C. General Hospital in Southeast. Relisha is believed to be in the company of Kahlil Tatum, who works as a janitor at the shelter. According to the Relisha’s mother’s fiance, Antonio Wheeler, the mom gave permission to Khalil Tatum, a janitor at the shelter, to take her daughter. Relisha had been missing since late February, but here disappearance was only brought to the attention of police on Wednesday when officials with D.C. Public Schools realized she hadn’t been showing up for class. Better late than never, I guess. Relisha is described as a black female, standing 4 feet tall and weighing between 70 and 80 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes, and a medium complexion.
Police were searching a homeless shelter next to a Washington, D.C., jail Thursday after missing 8-year-old Relisha Rudd’s mother was taken away.
The mother’s fiance said the woman gave permission to Khalil Tatum, a janitor at the shelter, to take her daughter.
“She said she is at Mr. Tatum’s house she’s good,” said Antonio Wheeler, fiance. “I seen Mr. Tatum today and he said he would bring my daughter back.”
Wheeler said he asked Tatum again later.
“I asked him, he said, ‘She is my house… would bring her back when I get off work today,’” Wheeler said.
That never happened, Wheeler said.
Authorities released surveillance footage of Tatum and Relisha taken on Feb. 26 at the Holiday Inn Express located at 1917 Bladensburg Road in Northeast D.C.
The search for Kahlil Tatum led to the Red Roof Inn in Oxon Hill. Upon further room to room searches at the hotel, the body of 51 year old Andrea Denise Tatum, the wife of Kahlil Malik Tatum, was found dead. An arrest warrant has been issued for Kahil Tatum for the murder of his wife. The police believe Relisha Rudd is traveling with Kahlil Tatum, who may be armed and dangerous, either on foot or in a different vehicle.
Since Relisha Rudd has disappeared and the events that followed, according to Shamika Young, the mother of missing Relisha, DC Child and Family Services have taken custody of her other children three children, ages 7, 5 and 4.

A man has been charged with killing his wife and may be traveling with an 8-year-old D.C. girl who has been missing for more than three weeks, authorities said.
Prince George’s County Police have obtained an arrest warrant charging Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, of Southeast Washington with murder in the death of his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, the police department said in a news release.
The body of Andrea Tatum, 51, was found Thursday 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 Tenau Rudd, who was reporting missing earlier in the week.
Police say a truck sought as part of the search for a Washington, D.C., girl has been found in Maryland, but police are still looking for the girl.
Prince George’s County Police said Friday that the unoccupied truck described in an Amber Alert seeking 8-year-old Relisha Rudd was found parked in Chapel Oaks.
UPDATE II: Search for missing Relisha Rudd intensifies to area of area of Kenilworth Park. … Kahlil Malik Tatum May Have Killed Relisha Rudd.
“We’re not making any assumptions, but I think it’d be prudent for us at this time to make sure we’ve searched – and this is a very large area – searched this area very well,” said D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “We cannot ignore the possibility that he may have killed her.”
The search of the aquatic gardens area of Kenilworth Park was prompted by evidence the man, identified as Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, spent time there after the last credible sighting of Relisha Tenau Rudd, 8, on March 1.
“On March 2, we know that Mr. Tatum purchased, among other items, a carton of black, 42 gallon, self-tie contractor trash bags within the District of Columbia,” Lanier said at a news conference near the search area. “Not long after that purchase, Mr. Tatum was in the area of the aquatic gardens for a period of time.”
D.C. police spokesman Hugh Carew said dive teams were searching the Anacostia River in the 700-acre park in Northeast Washington, DC.
The search for missing 8-year-old girl Relisha Rudd resumed Saturday, with dive teams continuing to sift through the waters of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens for possible remains.
The search for Relisha, last seen alive on March 1, enters day three at the heavily wooded park in Northeast Washington.
It began with a foot search Thursday, after authorities discovered Kahlil Malik Tatum, the man suspected of abducting Relisha, spent more than two hours in that area shortly after purchasing a number of 42-gallon contractor style garbage bags, a shovel and lime on March 2.
Police ask anyone with information on Relisha’s whereabouts to call the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099, the Youth Investigations Division at 202-576-6768, or 911.
Washington State Mudslide Near Oso Kills 3; Searchers Now Looking for the Missing & Survivors (Update: At Least 10 People Unaccounted For)(Update: Death Toll Rises to 8)(Update: Sadly Death Toll Now at 24, Up to 176 Missing)
Following a massive mudslide that came down on their homes in Washington state, near Oso, three people died Saturday and at least 12 people, including a six-month-old baby, were were hurt. Three people were also in critical condition in the hospital. At least 6 homes have been lost and 3 people have been killed to date. Responders in Snohomish County to the mudslide called it the worst slide, the worst natural disaster, they’ve seen in decades. People have been asked to evacuate the area. Many are heeding the warnings and evacuating themselves and their animals; however, some are staying behind.
The slide cut off the city of Darrington and dammed up the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, causing the water to pool behind the dam.
First responders in Snohomish County called it the worst slide, the worst natural disaster, they’ve seen in decades.
“Think back to what Mount St. Helens and Toutle River looked like — and that’s what we’re looking at,” said Rodney Rochon of the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.
The National Weather Service said the river level dropped from 3.1 feet to 0.9 feet in the hour after the slide occurred, confirming the river was blocked by the slide.
Alert – Flooding expected after OSO Mudslide.
Sheriff;s office requested this Alert will update again in AM. We are lifting evacuation order during DAYLIGHT hours. You can go home, but be ready to leave. Will likely reissue evacuation order tonight.
After hearing voices pleading for help, rescuers were conducting an overnight search for survivors from a massive mudslide in Washington state that killed at least three people and forced evacuations because of fears of severe flooding.
The slide of mud, trees and rocks happened about 11 Saturday morning. Several people – including an infant – were critically injured and at least six houses were destroyed.
Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots said at a news briefing late Saturday that searchers weren’t giving up on finding more people alive.
At least 10 people are unaccounted for after a landslide north of Seattle that’s already blamed for three deaths, a spokesman for Washington’s governor said Sunday.
At least six houses were destroyed in the landslide and possibly 16 were damaged, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported. Seven adults and a 6-month-old boy were rescued and sent to local hospitals, deputies said. But David Postman, a spokesman for Gov. Jay Inslee, said the whereabouts of at least 10 people were unknown Sunday morning.
UPDATE II: Death toll rises to 8 in Wash. mudslide.
Eight people are now confirmed dead after a massive landslide slammed into homes Saturday near Oso, Wash., authorities said Sunday.
Snohomish County sheriff’s Lt. Rob Palmer said four more bodies were discovered late Sunday. Earlier in the day, authorities said one body had been found on the debris field. Three people were confirmed dead Saturday. Tod Gates, incident commander for the Northwest Washington Incident Management Team, also announced the new death toll at a community meeting Sunday.
More people still were missing, and authorities said the number was “fluid.” Earlier Sunday, they said there were at least 18 people missing, but that was before the additional bodies were discovered.
UPDATE III: Unofficial death toll rises to 24.
Washington state officials say crews have recovered two bodies and believe they have located another eight in the debris of a massive landslide, bringing the likely death toll to 24 amid diminishing hope of finding survivors as the search enters its fifth day.
Two more fatalities were recovered Tuesday and another eight found but not yet recovered, in addition to the 14 deaths already reported, according to Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots.
The mudslide, which struck the town of Oso on Saturday morning, also resulted in as many as 176 missing person reports, but officials said they could not tell how many were duplicates. Authorities are keeping the official toll at 16 until the eight other bodies are recovered.
