New video has surfaced in the disappearance of 8-year-old Relisha Rudd.

Police have released video footage from a hotel that shows her abductor, Khalil Tatum, leading her down a hallway on the day she went missing. In the video the little girl is not smiling and looks tired as she carries two large plastic shopping bags. Police have also released additional pictures of both Relisha and Khalil Tatum.

In addition to kidnapping Relisha Rudd, Tatum is being sought as prime suspect in the murder of his wife, Andrea Tatum, 51. Andrea Tatum was found shot to death inside one of the rooms of a Red Roof Inn.
