The FBI announced a reward of $25,000 for information leading to the return of missing Washington, D.C., girl Relisha Tenau Rudd, for whom an Amber Alert was issued Thursday.

In their search for the young girl, police found the dead body of Andrea Denise Tatum, 51, who was shot to death in Prince George's County a motel room. Her husband, Kahlil Tatum, is accused in her death and is suspected of having kidnapped Relisha.

Prince George's County Police are also offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to Kahlil Tatum's arrest and indictment, CBSLocal.com reported.

The FBI released new photos of Relisha Tuesday as well of surveillance footage of the girl and Kahlil Tatum in a Washington, D.C., Holiday Inn Express on Feb. 26.
