Tennessee student who disappeared with teacher found safe in California

The 50-year-old Tennessee man accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old former student was arrested in Northern California - and the teenage girl was recovered safely after she was missing for more than a month, authorities said Thursday. Local law enforcement were able to find the vehicle belonging to Thomas' alleged kidnapper, 50-year-old Tad Cummins, and ultimately arrest him.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation received the tip around 11 p.m. Wednesday and the caller pointed authorities to a cabin in Cecilville, a rural area near the OR border with little to no cell service, TBI Public Information Officer Joshua Devine said.

LaughingWolf said when the commune told Cummins it wouldn't be a good fit for the commune, he reportedly stormed off with his young victim. "This is a hard time for her and her family".

Cummins and Thomas went back to the property Barry tends and he said they could stay in his cabin if they agreed to work on the property.

April 4, 2017: A tip in the AMBER Alert case called in to the Maury County Sheriff's Office from a West Nashville hotel was deemed not credible.

February 6, 2017: Cummins is suspended from his job at Culleoka Unit School in Maury County.

On Feb. 3, Cummins was caught having Thomas in his classroom when other students were present.

DeVine said he did not know if Cummins was talking with investigators in California.

Investigators also found that days before kidnapping Thomas, Cummins had refilled his prescription for Cialis, a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, and Cummins bought women's razors and KY Jelly from that Walmart in Oklahoma days after the kidnapping.

District Attorney Brent Cooper told news outlets Tad Cummins takes medicine to control his blood pressure and would likely need a refill.

The pair disappeared on March 13 from Maury County, Tennessee, and were the subject of an ongoing AMBER Alert.

Cummins' wife, Jill files for divorce, alleging irreconcilable differences have arisen and exist between her and her husband.

A BOLO, or be on the lookout was issued for both Cummins and Thomas. Investigators received more than 1,500 tips regarding the whereabouts of the pair, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

April 7 - A petition from Thomas' father was released in an effort to gather testimonies under oath.

The girl was found safe on Thursday and the teacher was arrested.

For weeks, authorities have been urging the public to remain vigilant in secluded or off-the-grid areas, as they expected Cummins was keeping Thomas somewhere out of the public's eye.

The TBI said it received more than 1,500 tips during the duration of the investigation.
