The mother of the 15-year-old girl who disappeared with her teacher is speaking out. "I can't eat. I can't sleep. I'm scared to death," Kimberly Thomas, the mom, told Inside Edition. She hasn't seen her daughter in over a year. Thomas is free on bail awaiting trial on five charges of neglect and child abuse and was ordered to have no contact with her daughter. Court documents allege that Beth was beaten, thrown down the basement stairs and had to get naked in front of several others.
