Cops Hunt Teacher Accused Of Abducting Student

A 50-year-old Tennessee school teacher hunted by authorities in the alleged kidnapping and sexual contact with 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas has been added to the state's Bureau of Investigation Top Ten Most Wanted list.

The school district investigated the allegation, removed student Elizabeth Thomas from teacher Tad Cummins' class and said the teacher would be reprimanded. Cummins, a Maury County, Tennessee teacher was sacked after being accused of having sexual contact with the Thomas, according to the TBI.

A spokesperson for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says they have had more than 250 tips called in but so far there have been no credible sightings.

Thomas was last seen wearing a flannel shirt and black leggings.

Cummins, who's 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds, is reportedly armed with two handguns. Whatley said the father didn't find out until a week later, from law enforcement authorities.

DeVine says investigators were able to place Thomas in Alabama last week, but they have not been able to locate the high school freshman since.

Jason Whatley, an attorney for Elizabeth's father, Anthony Thomas, told media this week that another student saw Cummins kissing Elizabeth on January 24.

Almost two months before a high school student and her former teacher went missing, they were alleged to have been seen kissing by another student in the teacher's classroom.

According to police, security footage shows Cummins getting gas before picking up Thomas from the restaurant in his silver Nissan Rogue.

Police have described Thomas as five feet, five inches tall, 120 pounds, with blonde hair and hazel eyes. Authorities believe they're travelling together in the vehicle, which has the Tennessee license plate 976-ZPT. AMBER alerts have been issued throughout the state as well as Alabama.
