USA teacher accused of kidnapping student arrested

After realizing who they were, Barry said he immediately called 911.

"The girl wasn't really looking at me or anything and he was always dominating the conversation".

School officials said Thomas' safe return is "wonderful news for our community, and now, we can begin healing as a community, school district, and as families touched by the AMBER Alert".

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

According to school records, another student saw Cummins kissing Thomas on the lips in January. Cummins was arrested Thursday after a tip led police to the cabin in Cecilville, California.

Locals in the tight-knit community are shocked, while Thomas' family is overjoyed.

Tad Cummins, 50, filled a prescription for Cialis at a Columbia, Tenn., pharmacy on March 10 - three days before allegedly ditching town with student Elizabeth Thomas, the federal complaint filed Thursday says.

Authorities said Elizabeth was physically unharmed, but they declined to comment on her emotional well-being or where the pair has been since they vanished last month.

"It was a very traumatic experience for her", Sgt. Behr Tharsing, of the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office, told reporters.

But he was concerned about his daughter's mental health and planned to get her help immediately.

Behind the scenes at the Braves' home opener
Ryan Schimpf walked and Erick Aybar was hit by a pitch, setting up Chacin's run-scoring dribbler and Manuel Margot's RBI single. Teheran paid back Chacin in the fourth, driving in the run that put the Braves ahead to stay with an infield single of his own.

Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey said Thomas was alternately "laughing, crying and acting stoic".

He was Thomas's high school teacher at Culleoka Unit School in Tennessee. But Barry, 29, said he became suspicious when the older man tried to keep the teen away. The girl was found safe on Thursday and the teacher was arrested.

Police say Thomas, 15, was taken by her former teacher Tad Cummins, 50, in March.

The girl's father has told news media he believes his daughter was brainwashed.

The TBI has been assisted in this search by a variety of law enforcement agencies across the country, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Maury County Sheriff's Department, and the Office of 22nd District Attorney General Brent Cooper. The 15 year-old Tennessee girl who disappeared with him more than a month ago has been found safe in California.

Whatley speculated that Cummins had planned an escape to the Northwest, referencing the citing of the two at a Walmart in Oklahoma City off Interstate 44, which leads to California.

Giordano said the cabin was located about a 30-minute drive from a commune known as Black Bear Ranch, but there was no indication that the pair spent any time there.

Thomas, 15, was the subject of a Tennessee AMBER Alert issued on March 14th, after having been kidnapped a day earlier by Tad Cummins, a former teacher at her school in Maury County, Tennessee.

The tiny cabin where authorities found former Tennessee teacher Tad Cummins and his 15-year-old student, Elizabeth Thomas, is nestled in the woods in a remote, mountainous area of inland, northernmost California near the OR border. Authorities confirmed it belonged to Cummins through the VIN number. "I don't want to disclose yet when she's going to be here because obviously, our goal is to seclude Elizabeth with her family". Tad Cummins, her teacher, has been arrested.
