In the days before he allegedly abducted his 15-year-old student, Tennessee teacher Tad Cummins refilled a prescription for Cialis, took out a loan for quick cash and made hotel reservations in another state, actions investigators believe show he was planning to leave with the girl.

Tad Cummins, 50, and Elizabeth Thomas, 15, in undated photos released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The student notified school officials the next day.

January 25, 2017: Maury County Sheriff's Officer begins investigating after student reports the pair kissing.

The school system didn't suspend Cummins until February 6.

Witnesses say Cummins was suspended after he and Thomas had been caught kissing in the classroom earlier this year. "This is a hard time for her and her family".

Depending on the route traveled, North Beach could be up to 1,000 miles southwest of Columbia, Tenn., Elizabeth Thomas' hometown. Investigators were then able to use the car's VIN number to confirm that it belonged to Cummins and kept the auto under surveillance for several hours, Devine said. Her phone later pinged in Decatur, Alabama, around 3 p.m. Cummins was also terminated from MCPS.

Whatley has said the teacher was allowed to continue working at the school for two weeks after he was reported kissing the girl. The TBI said Thomas was recovered safely.

The end of the nationwide manhunt came after authorities received a tip-off on Wednesday night that the pair may have taken up residence in the woods in Siskiyou County, perhaps for more than a week.

They also called the sheriff.

Cummins was added to Tennessee's top 10 most wanted list March 17. Elizabeth Thomas' grandmother, who opted to remain unidentified, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Her dad said, "We are going to get her back". "We're anxiously awaiting word on her condition".

Thomas' brother pleads for her safe return.

March 19 - Neighbors reacted to Thomas' disappearance.

"The student related that Cummins rambled on and on about how much he loved his wife but indicated that (Thomas) sometimes went to church with him and his wife and that (Thomas) had a troubled past", court records state. Law enforcement officers arrested Cummins.

March 24 - Cummins' coworkers offered a reward in AMBER Alert.

The TBI director called the pair's disappearance a "well-thought out kidnapping".

Investigators said the two used cash to buy various food items. The images showed Cummins had altered his hair to appear darker and the girl's hair may have changed to red.

April 2, 2017: Family and friends hold a vigil for Thomas.

"Subsequent investigation revealed that Cummins had no scheduled interview", the complaint said.

April 5, 2017: Thomas' father urges his daughter to come home, "We all want you home. We all need you home". The agency said it would provide more details in a press conference later.

Cummins' estranged wife, Jill Cummins, was "very emotional" when she learned both were found safe, her attorney Michael Cox said.

"This is not somewhere they had frequently visited", Cox said.

Cummins and Thomas disappeared on March 13, sparking a cross-country manhunt made all the more hard as Cummins apparently changed his appearance and may have switched out the license plate on the vehicle he was driving, according to reports.

March 27 - A former student of Cummins spoke out.

Authorities say they were found at a commune in Cecilville, California, on Thursday.

Thomas, 15, was last seen March 13 wearing a flannel shirt and black leggings.
