Teacher accused of kidnapping student arrested in California

The student, Elizabeth Thomas, was found safe in in Cecilville, near the OR border, her sister Kat Thomas said Thursday.

Cummins and the teen arrived at a Cecilville-area gas station last week, apparently on their way to visit a commune, Barry told CNN affiliate KDRV.

"I told him I could give him some work and help him out, so yesterday we moved rocks out of the river", Barry said.

The caretaker and neighbor hatched a plan to get Cummins to stay in the cabin for the night.

Cummins surrendered without incident after local authorities located the Nissan Rogue they were traveling in.

Cummins was sacked about a month after being suspended - a day after the TBI issued an Amber Alert about the teen.

A press release says the pair was found at a commune.

The friend told him something didn't seem right, O'Hare said.

Cummins was transported to the Siskiyou County Jail in Yreka, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies monitored the auto and took Cummins into custody as daylight broke, said DeVine. Elizabeth was walking behind him and was detained.

Two police officers shot dead in Paris
They will battle in the first round of elections on Sunday, standing on vastly different platforms from far-right to far-left. The Islamic State cell responsible for the Paris terrorist attacks in November 2015 used Kalashnikov-style rifles.

"The family is absolutely elated beyond words that this part of the ordeal is coming to an end", Jason Whatley, an attorney for the girl's family said Thursday evening. "Now begins another hard chapter, but for now, we celebrate".

Their disappearance on March 13 came after Cummins was investigated by the school system when another student reported seeing the then-married teacher kiss the girl.

He was arrested without incident on Thursday morning as he emerged from a small, rustic cabin in the mountains of rural Siskiyou County, California, about 60 miles (100 km) south of the OR border, county Sheriff Jon Lopey told reporters in nearby Yreka.

Surveillance video showed the pair at a Walmart in Oklahoma City on March 15. But for weeks, the trail went cold.

The complaint alleges Cummins left a note for his wife on March 13 saying he was leaving for a while to "clear his head".

"[Jill] reported that the money was missing, along with two handguns, clothes and toiletry items", the complaint says. He added that when Thomas wanted to share something she would whisper stuff in Cummins ear and then Cummins would repeat it. The charge carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison.

He will also face charges of sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping once he is extradited back to Tennessee, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations.

Elizabeth was described by authorities to be "healthy" and "unharmed", but they added that the main concern is the state of her emotional and mental well being. "We're also grateful for the public's support and vigilance throughout this search effort".

One suspect was dead, authorities said, and another was being questioned.

"It was a very traumatic experience for her".
