WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - More than five years after Relisha Rudd went missing, members of the D.C. community are gathering to remember her life and spread awareness about her disappearance.
Members of the D.C. police department and community leaders will pass out flyers, refreshments and will give out child identification fingerprint kits on Thursday at the 7-Eleven on Good Hope Road and Minnesota Avenue in the Southeast from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Relisha was just 8-years old on March 1, 2014 when she was last seen on surveillance video at a Northeast D.C. motel with Kahlil Tatum, a janitor who worked at the D.C. General Shelter where the girl lived with her family. Tatum committed suicide after Rudd was reported missing. Investigators believe Tatum killed Relisha before later killing himself. Her body has never been found.
The FBI is still offering a $25,000 reward for information that will lead to locating Rudd.
