  • Alleged Kidnapper Tad Cummins Arrested In Northern California Missing Tennessee Teen Elizabeth Thomas Safe

Authorities said Tad Cummins and Elizabeth Thomas were found in northern California.

Soon after, Barry saw an amber alert photo of the missing 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas and then called the police. "What happened in California this morning, however, proves it only takes one person to lead to a successful end".

"They would write the message and let it save as a draft", Cooper said.

The arrest in California comes weeks after authorities said the two had been spotted on surveillance camera at a Wal-Mart in Oklahoma City on March 30.

"He is charged with transportation of a minor across state lines for the goal of sexual intercourse", Smith said.

"Cummins was arrested on a state warrant for aggravated kidnapping", the affidavit says.

The 12-year-old and another student confronted Cummins about his relationship with Thomas, the records show.

Acting U.S. Attorney Jack Smith announced the charge for Tad Cummins at a news conference on Thursday, just hours after authorities say the girl was found safe in a very remote area in northern California.

"They were going to try and contain him but thought, 'Naw, he's supposed to be armed and unsafe.'" Cummins was on Tennessee's 10 Most Wanted list. The girl was apparently healthy and unharmed, and authorities said their main concern was her emotional and mental state.

The affidavit starts with reports that a School Resource Officer contacted sheriff's investigators in late January saying a student had reported seeing Cummins and Thomas kiss. A friend dropped off Thomas at the Shoney's in Columbia, Tenn., around 8 a.m. Thomas' parents later reported her missing to authorities.

Cummins was sacked from his teaching job after being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with Thomas.

That morning, Cummins' wife reported to the sheriff's office that her husband hadn't come home the night before, records show.

The report recommended that the girl be taken out of Cummins' class and that he be reprimanded to uphold his professional responsibility.

Siskiyou County deputies searched the area and found a silver Nissan Rogue parked outside the cabin, TBI spokesman Josh DeVine said. The wife, who works for the Maury County school system, said she had not seen her husband since March 13.

"The filing of the divorce complaint is the first step to removing Jill from this situation", Michael Cox, her attorney, said at the time.

They have only implied the pair had sexual relations by charging Cummins with sexual contact with a minor and a federal charge of transporting a minor across state lines to have sexual intercourse.
