WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- "If we find evidence of a crime committed by anyone else, they will be charged. We're talking about an 8-year-old girl here," the Chief Cathy Lanier with the Metropolitan Police Department said.
Police did not even know to start searching until three weeks after Relisha was last seen alive.
If Tatum dumped her body in a dumpster, she may never be found.
"We're looking at landfill searches that are hazardous, explosive methane. Acres and acres. As deep as 15 feet," Lanier said.
WUSA9 has learned Amtrak Police are checking surveillance video at Union Station to see if someone might have put Relisha on a train to someplace still unknown.
The FBI is still offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to Relisha.
The agency reminds us that sometimes it finds children years after they have disappeared.
