No Sign of Tennesee Teacher and Abducted Student

No Sign of Tennesee Teacher and Abducted Student

Tennessee authorities are now asking for the public's help in their hunt for Cummins, 50, who is accused of kidnapping 15-year-old Elizabeth last Monday, March 13, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.

Cummins is wanted on allegations of aggravated kidnapped and sexual contact with a minor. The TBI has issued a second Amber Alert for the girl and investigators believe Cummins may have abducted the girl to "potentially sexually exploit her".

Thomas was last seen when she was dropped off at a Shoney's restaurant in Columbia between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. on Monday. "He didn't just steal from me, he stole from the Maury County community", Elizabeth's father, Anthony Thomas, said before the crowd. School officials said Cummins was dismissed as a result of the district investigation.

Cooper charged Tad Cummins this week for a sexual interaction between him and a student, Elizabeth Thomas, at his school.

"Tad, this is not you".

Thomas' brother added that his younger sister would always tell them when she was hanging out with friends or going somewhere.




Cummins is a white man with brown hair and eyes, who stands 6-feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds.

She was initially thought to be in the area of Decatur, Alabama, with Cummins.

Her former teacher, Tad Cummins, 50, is allegedly shown on surveillance footage from a gas station near the restaurant at about 8:30 a.m. filling up his silver Nissan Rogue, the auto in which authorities believe he is traveling in with the teenager. AMBER alerts have been issued throughout the state as well as Alabama. "This is not who you are. I'm not asking him to do anything more than just put her someplace safe and let somebody know where she is so we can get her back home", said James Thomas. "Please do the right thing and turn yourself in to the police and bring Beth home".

Anyone with any information regarding Thomas and Tad Cummins's whereabouts is asked to contact the authorities immediately by calling the Maury County Sheriff's Office at 931-388-5151 or the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI) at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

After being suspended, Cummins took to Instagram, posting things like "It was love at first sight" and "Something handsome is on the horizon", leading many to wonder, what happened during those 14 days when Cummins and Thomas were at school together? A $1,000 reward is available for information leading to Tad Cummins' arrest.
