New twists arise in an amber alert for a missing Tennessee girl, Elizabeth Thomas, 15.

She’s been missing for a week now, and police believe a former teacher kidnapped her. The teacher, Tad Cummins, 50, also faces charges for having sexual contact with the teen.

Now, both families are begging for answers and action.

Authorities say Cummins is carrying two handguns along with $4,500 in cash.

They say the two may have changed their appearances since they were last seen.
