WASHINGTON (AP) - A foot search of a District of Columbia park for a missing 8-year-old girl is expected to resume Monday.

Authorities are looking for Relisha Rudd, who was last seen on March 1 with Kahlil Tatum, a janitor at the city homeless shelter where Relisha lived. After authorities began searching for the girl, police found Tatum’s wife dead in a motel room in Oxon Hill, Md.

Authorities began searching Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens after they learned Tatum had spent time in the park on March 2 after purchasing some black trash bags.

Police spokesman Hugh Carew says a foot search of the 700-acre park is expected to resume Monday. Divers have been working through the weekend searching small bodies of water at the park.
