Tennessee girl found safe, teacher arrested in northern California

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) confirms that Tad Cummins is under arrest and 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas is safe.

Speaking on Good Morning America, he also said his daughter, who can not be named for legal reason, will need therapy and her family will ensure she gets the help she needs.

Officers ran down more than 1,500 leads and put in countless hours during the search for her, he said.

"Looking back, it's weird", Barry said.

Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kelly Giordano told News 2 it found with the license plate removed and verified to be Cummins' vehicle through its VIN number.

Authorities arrested Cummins and Thomas is safe.

"We are all stoked she was found", O'Hare said.

"These two had a relationship to the extent where she didn't exhibit any anger toward him. I will let the courts deal with the ramifications of what happened here", Butt said. Authorities had said they had been living there for about a week-and-a-half.

Rep. Sheila Butt, a Republican state lawmaker who represents Columbia, said Thursday was a great day for her community. "The student related that Cummins rambled on and on about how much he loved his wife, but indicated that VICTIM sometimes went to church with him and his wife and that VICTIM had a troubled past". In the cabin, he said, was a single sleeping pad and clothing along with the two loaded guns - a 9mm and a.380 compact pistol.

The girl has returned to Tennessee.

Authorities are working to reunite Thomas with her family.

"In the note, Cummins explained that he was traveling to Virginia Beach or the D.C. area to clear his head".

The day that Cummins and Thomas went missing, the affidavit says Cummins lied to his wife and borrowed her 2015 Nisan Rogue vehicle.

"Subsequent investigation revealed that Cummins had no scheduled interview", the complaint said. "He is charged with transportation of a minor across state lines for the objective of sexual intercourse", Smith said.

The arrest in California comes weeks after authorities said the two had been spotted on surveillance camera at a Wal-Mart in Oklahoma City on March 30.

How they got to Cecilville, California, and why they went there remains a mystery to investigators. Attorney Jason Whatley has said the school system must have not believed the student's report.

He described her condition as alternating between "stoic" and "emotional", understandable given the circumstances, he said. The teen had been missing since she was allegedly kidnapped on March 13 by Cummins, who had been added to Tennessee's Top 10 Most Wanted list. Near the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Siskiyou County is about 120 miles south of the California-Oregon state line.
