Search continues nationwide for teacher and missing teen

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Thomas was kidnapped by a 50-year-old teacher Tad Cummins.

Cummins, of Columbia, Tennessee, is wanted on allegations of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor, authorities said. "For example, he potentially may have them sleeping in the vehicle or Cummins may have driven them far away from Tennessee to a rural community", the release said.

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

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.

Cooper charged Tad Cummins this week for a sexual interaction between him and a student, Elizabeth Thomas, at his school. "Nothing investigators have learned about Cummins or his intentions for the young girl since issuing the AMBER Alert calms the imminent concern for Elizabeth's well-being".

Thomas and Cummins' relationship, the TBI told WSMV, started at school.

Elizabeth Thomas has been missing since Monday. Her family conducted a candlelight vigil this weekend, holding out hope they'll see her again.

On March 13, video surveillance at a Columbia gas station showed Cummins filling up his silver Nissan Rogue.

In February, South African sports minister Fikile Mbalula hinted that the city is broke and may not be able to host the event.

Clues about the suspected kidnapping were seen on Instagram when both teacher and student posted messages on Instagram that caught the attention of law enforcement; Thomas posted a quote about Beauty and the Beast and Cummins wrote: "Let's do this".

Maury County, TN Public Schools terminated Cummins last week after an investigation had been launched into inappropriate contact between the teacher and Thomas.

"The TBI described Thomas as a 15-year-old white female with hazel eyes who stands 5'5" and weighs 120 pounds.

An AMBER Alert remains ongoing as the TBI works to find Thomas.

At an emotional press conference on Friday, Cummins' wife, Jill, said she was unaware of her husband's alleged involvement with Thomas.

She went on to speak to Tad saying, "this is not who you are". "Please do the right thing and turn yourself in to the police and bring Beth home".

"We all love you very much and we miss you. the house is not the same without you here".

A break in the case would be something as small as one person who's driving down the road and see a Tennessee license plate, Devine tells reporters. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
