Not In The Chocolate City: An Army Of Citizens Rallies Around Disabled D.C. Man To Find One Of Their Own Missing Children

It’s a microcosmic view inside the depth of frustration that has long been simmering for quite sometime within the african american community, developing from an epidemic of violence, governments failure to assist poor families, and the growing trend of missing black kids. A dark place, seemingly banned to the obscure annals of America’s most indigenous and poverty stricken communities, the plight of poor black babies along with the growing destruction of black youth, in Washington D.C. at least, has spurned a grass roots movement advocating change to protect black children. The disappearance of a beautiful 8-year-old little girl name Relisha Rudd was the catalyst for change that got Keith Warren motivated to launch an all out assault on those responsible for the little girls’ disappearance. Warren’s efforts are deeply rooted with emphatic practicality of having to assist locating the disappearance of a child relative back in 2010.

In the small space he shares with a roommate at an assisted living center in Washington, Warren has rallied thousands of concerned citizens to aide in the fight to bring young Relisha Rudd home safely. Every night for the past few weeks, he has broadcast the “Finding Relisha Radio Show,” from an internet platform on Blogtalk. Hundreds of listeners tune in to add comment, share their thoughts, along with frightening theories that they believe may have happened in the child’s disappearance case. That effort has mushroomed into a task force of people who actively participate in searches, passing out flyers, and talking to people within the surrounding communities to get the word out about young Relisha Rudd’s story. The group’s members has ballooned into nearly a thousand people who are all actively communicating in the efforts to find the missing little girl.

“It’s a long overdue process that should occur every time a black child goes missing,” said Hakeem Abdul, a Baltimore based child advocate who echoes the thoughts of many who have been following Keith Warren, and the Finding Relisha Rudd movement. The show has highlighted interviews with members of the little girl’s family, who have appeared on air and engaged in arguing, fighting, and other deplorable behavior that really tarnish the efforts to find Relisha. At times listeners who call into the show questioning the family, have attacked family members with insults and brash condemnation of the child’s mother, grandmother, and aunts for what the public largely sees as their irresponsibility and failure of Relisha while not appearing to be doing enough to help bring the child home. Warren who is a U.S. Veteran and a bounty hunter, at times has struggled to keep the show’s decorum in tact, while an outpouring of emotion and outrage often prevails during the open discussion about the case. He has no formal training as a broadcast journalist, dropped out of school in the ninth grade, but his efforts are being applauded by a volume of people who say they will not let the little girl’s tragic case go quietly into the dark of the night.

Warren’s efforts have not gone without scrutiny, while some question “what makes this little girl different” from all of the other missing kids. Such a descent from an unprecedented community involved collaboration to find a missing D.C. kid, is quickly dispelled by followers who refuse to give up hope, and believe Relisha is still alive. Other factors which appear to make wide public advocacy to find the child unique, stem from the volume of women who have taken the case personal. Some of the details centered around Relisha’s disappearance are simply unconscionable, and have made parents with children around Relisha’s age livid, regarding the lack of awareness the child’s family had pertaining to her whereabouts for such an extended period of time. Mothers reject the notion that the nineteen days Shameeka Young allowed to go by without physically seeing her daughter, as an acceptable form of child rearing, and many have made it crystal clear that they want the mother to be arrested for her negligence.

Keith Warren’s broadcast has ushered in statements from other family members the public never heard from in mainstream media. Like Daniel Roberts (Relisha’s uncle) who told KWDC Radio that he witnessed Shameeka Young give her daughter to Kalil Tatum at a D.C. bus stop on March 7, 2014. His comment was a shocking revelation which discounts the mother’s earlier account which she claims to have last seen Relisha on March 1, 2014, and perpetuates growing suspicion that Shameeka Young is not being truthful about Relisha’s disappearance. Warren’s show also may have unveiled another possible missing child case. When Shameeka Young came under fire regarding her account that she left Relisha with her sister Ashley, she went of the offensive and disclosed that Ashley also has a daughter who is possibly missing. The dialogue caught listeners by surprise, and some have recounted that tensed moment of the show, contemplating whether missing children are a culture among Relisha’s family members.

The onset of Keith Warren’s personal mission to bring the community together to find such a beautiful child has brought a long decried quest of advocacy for missing children of color, to the very apex of Washington’s social consciousness. His show’s platform of an open mic dialogue has brought so many inconsistencies related to the case to the forefront, and many of the comments made by family members of Relisha Rudd are now a matter of record, which may be utilized by authorities to get to the bottom of what happened to this innocent and precious child. If you have some time, tune in to his show at 7:00 p.m. every night. I’m sure he’ll be there with an army of concerned parents who care about missing children in the “Chocolate City.” Where are you Relisha?
