The Black and Missing Foundation has been assisting the Metropolitan Police Department in the search for Relisha Rudd of Washington DC. They believe that Relisha, who is similar in age to Ariana-Leilani, is a victim of human trafficking.
“I feel that we’re searching for a live person,” said Derrica Wilson, a former police officer who runs the foundation.
I personally feel that this little girl was sold. I think her mother sold her to Tatum and I think Tatum has sold her in this world wide industry of trafficking,” said the former officer.
This could the case for various, including the fact that Relisha is so young, and a cute kid who was seemingly handed over to her abductor by her own mother.
They added that it’s important to realize Relisha’s appearance may very well have been changed, so, the pictures we’ve seen in recent weeks may not be exactly what we should be looking for.
Natalie Wilson said Relisha could have shorter hair or may be dressed like a little boy, so it’s important take an extra look at every child you come across.
