D.C. police are seeking the public's help in finding the woman who they think picked up a missing boy from his elementary school in Southeast Washington this afternoon.

Police described the woman, Rolanda Edgar, as black, five-feet-eight, with a slim build. Police said in a release that she was last seen wearing a tan zipper jacket, red shirt, and dark sweatpants.

The boy, Rashaun Robinson, who attends Stanton Elementary School in the 2700 block of Naylor Road SE, was picked up at the school shortly before 2 p.m. by Edgar, said D.C. police Lt. Darlene Terry-Weeks.

Anyone with relevant information is urged to call police at 202-727-9099 or 1-888-919-2746.
