Teen Believed Abducted by Teacher Found Safe
"Our intelligence analysts and agents have worked tirelessly since issuing this AMBER Alert to process more than 1,500 leads from all 50 states", TBI director Mark Gwyn said following the rescue of Elizabeth Thomas.
TBI says they received a tip in Siskiyou County, California of a possible sighting.
A warrant was issued for Cummins' arrest after TBI suggested he "may have been abusing his role as a teacher to groom this vulnerable young girl for some time in an effort to lure and potentially sexually exploit her". We are extremely thankful the hard work of all partners in this search has paid off. The efforts of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Maury County Sheriff's office, nationwide law enforcement community and media outlets promoting awareness of this case have brought us to this safe conclusion, and Maury County Public Schools wants to thank these many professionals for the good news today.

Authorities said that a TBI aircraft will bring the teenager home to Tennessee. "Our main concern is how she is emotionally and mentally".
Cummins is now in custody in the Siskiyou County Jail. He is being held without bond.
After the capture, one federal charge of transportation of a minor across state lines for the objective of having criminal sexual intercourse was filed against Cummins, said Jack Smith, acting USA attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.
In addition to the state charges he was already facing, Cummins now faces a charge of transportation of a minor across state lines for the goal of having criminal sexual intercourse, which carries at least a 10 year prison sentence.
