Kidnapped Tennessee Girl Safe, Teacher Arrested

21 April 2017, 07:57 | Gladys Abbott

During the almost six weeks that Tad Cummins and 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas were missing, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation received more than 1,500 tips. The student notified school officials the next day.

Giordano said the cabin was located about a 30-minute drive from a commune known as Black Bear Ranch, but there was no indication that the pair spent any time there.

February 6, 2017: Cummins is suspended from his job at Culleoka Unit School in Maury County. In her letter, Love said the girl being in his classroom was a violation of the principal's order to him. His daughter, Erica Osborne, said she saw her dad the night before he disappeared. Since then, the pair had been the subject of an ongoing AMBER Alert.

The school begins investigating the allegations of the kiss.

Cummins faces charges of sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping, the TBI said last month.

Cooper said authorities' primary focus is Thomas' well-being.

A representative from the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Cummins would face federal charges in addition to the state charges TBI already filed against him. The FBI was also called in to help with the search. Tad Cummins, her teacher, has been arrested.

Cummins is a former teacher from Thomas' school.

As daylight broke, Cummins was taken into custody, Devine said. The 50-year-old suspect, who was added to the 10 most wanted list in Tennessee, will be arraigned on Friday.

Elizabeth Thomas' sister, Kat Thomas, shared a message. As of Thursday evening, her family was waiting to communicate with her before speaking publicly.

The family also spoke about the outpouring of support they have received from the community.

"We mobilized a nation".

"All we know is that she is healthy and unharmed. Please help us bring her home". Pharmacists were asked to be on alert for customers who look like Cummins or Thomas. Thomas may have also changed her hair color to red, investigators noted. Cummins has been arrested. The agency said it would provide more details in a press conference later. He didn't buy "anything else of significance", the TBI said. When the pair came back, about a week later, Barry offered Cummins work. Jill has filed for divorce, saying she was betrayed by her husband and has no idea why he did what he did or went to California. They were last spotted by a Walmart surveillance camera in Oklahoma City on March 15, two days after they disappeared from Columbia, Tenn., almost 700 miles away.

The surveillance footage showed them entering the store together, where Cummins used cash to buy food.

Thomas appeared to be in good health at the time of the rescue.

April 2, 2017: Family and friends hold a vigil for Thomas. It was verified to belong to Cummins through its VIN number, according to the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office. "We all need you home". The 15 year-old Tennessee girl who disappeared with him more than a month ago has been found safe in California.

"Many thought the Nissan Rogue was long gone, but there it was", he said. Cummins has since been fired from the school district. Eventually Cummins surrendered himself and Thomas to the tactical unit. The family's attorney Jason Whatley said on behalf of the family, "There aren't words in the English language to describe the level of relief and elation experienced by the Thomas family".
