Interim U.S. Attorney Jack Smith said during a TBI briefing on the case that Cummins has been officially charged by his office with one count of interstate transportation of a minor for the objective of sexual intercourse.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation tweeted Thursday that teacher Tad Cummins had been taken into custody. "We all need you home".

TBI stressed how this case truly shows just how one tip can make a difference.

Authorities have not said what charges the 50-year-old health sciences teacher may face.

In the note Cummins indicated he had a job interview.

Thomas' brother pleads for her safe return.

Cummins told O'Hare's friend that he was 44 years old, the young woman with him was 22 and they were recently married. Cooper didn't provide details on what was in the note, but said it appeared to have been a diversion to throw investigators off the trail.
