March 21 (UPI) -- Police in the Washington, D.C., area said they found what they believe is a pickup truck driven by the suspected abductor of 8-year-old Relisha Tenau Rudd.

Prince George's County Police in Hyattsville, Md., spotted the white 1976 GMC pickup truck Friday morning. They believe the vehicle was driven by Kahil Malik Tatum, the man suspected of kidnapping Relisha.

Tatum was a janitor at the homeless shelter where Relisha and her mother and stepfather had been living.

Relisha's disappearance Thursday is connected to a homicide of a woman in an Oxon Hill, Md., motel, police confirmed. The relationship between the homicide victim and Relisha wasn't reported.


Police issued an Amber Alert for Relisha, who was described as black, 4 feet tall and weighing 70 to 80 pounds.
