Tennessee teen, Elizabeth Thomas, has been missing over 7 days and authorities have good reason to believe she was kidnapped by her teacher, Tad Cummins.
An ambert alert has been issued for Elizabeth Thomas, 15, who Tennessee authorities believe went missing with Tad Cummins (not pictured), a 50 year old teacher who was accussed of sexual misconduct with Thomas. Cummins, a Maury County, Tennessee teacher was sacked after being accused of having sexual contact with the Thomas, according to the TBI.
Tennessee authorities said they had received 250 tipoffs but said that was a low number, suggesting that the couple may have been sleeping in Cummins' vehicle rather than checking into motels. She was last seen wearing a flannel shirt and black leggings. He is 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds.
Elizabeth's family said in a statement, "We ask that you continue to share Elizabeth's story and to immediately notify law enforcement if you think you may have seen her". Cummins was not Thomas' teacher, and the history of their relationship is unknown, TBI Private Investigative Officer Josh Devine said.
Over the weekend, family and friends gathered at a candle light vigil praying for Elizabeth's return and pleading for Cummins to surrender. Tad Cummins had formerly taught at Culleoka Unit School, but was sacked after the alert was issued.
