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.

    this story is so sad. wtf is he doing with this girl. his mind is warped and i pray someone catches him before he does something really deadly to this lilttle girl. i wanna feel sympathy for the mom but at the same time she opened the door for him to have easy access to this child. i can’t imagine whats going on in this childs head. i hope she runs away or gets a chance to escape or open her mouth and let someone know whats going on.

    i pray that he hasnt harmed her . but sickos like this dont kidnapp a child for no reason , he has motives for getting her away from her ignorant mother in the first place . this is so sad . i wonder if the hotel gott the license plates on the car …. all anyone can do right now is pray he dont do somthing drastic , these type of child molesters , tend to seem like they care for the child , and make the child feel comfortable , and then turn to monsters . he suppose to have killed his wife also , that spells a pshcho on the loose . police need to find him NOWWWWWWW
