WASHINGTON ( — An October 2014 lead into the Relisha Rudd case led a volunteer New Jersey dive team to the Anacostia River on Saturday.

During the October 2014 search, a cadaver dog tracked a scent right up to the water’s edge for the 8-year-old, who disappeared more than a year ago.

At that time, the city did not have the resources they needed in order to search the river. That is when Brenda Brown, a good samaritan who befriended Rudd’s family, took matters into her own hands.
