Missing Tenn. student found, former teacher arrested

Missing Tenn. student found, former teacher arrested

The TBI says 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas, the teen at the center of an Amber Alert that has drawn nationwide attention, was found safe in Northern California on Thursday morning.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says Cummins was taken into custody.

The details were made public in a federal arrest affidavit filed by Jonathan Hardison, a Columbia, Tennessee police officer who serves on an FBI task force.

Authorities received a tip late Wednesday night that the pair may have taken up residence in the woods in Siskiyou County, perhaps for more than a week, bureau spokesman Josh DeVine said.

"When my neighbor called and told me, I thought 'Oh my God, no, we are way too far from (Tennessee),' " O'Hare said. The student described the kiss as a romantic peck rather than a father-daughter type kiss.

Cummins surrendered without incident, the TBI said, and Thomas was rescued by authorities. The teen's cellphone showed brief contact with Cummins' phone number on January 31, court records state. VICTIM indicated that Cummins must have been consoling her when the student walked in.

"At the end of the day she's 15 years old". After the kiss was reported, the school system order Cummins and Thomas not to have any contact.

The affidavit also describes Cummins' departure. Court records show that Jill Cummins sued her then-missing husband on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and inappropriate marital conduct.

The nearest police station from the cabin, O'Hare said, is two hours away.

Cazeneuve, the Socialist prime minister, accused the National Front leader of seeking to make political hay from the assault. Its president, Mickael Bucheron, told AP the slain officer would have celebrated his 38th birthday at the beginning of May.

That next morning, the caretaker asked Cummins to come outside and help him build a rock wall on the property. Authorities were still working to reunite Thomas with her family, the TBI said in the statement.

Officials at SeaWorld say the last killer whale has been born in captivity at one of its parks _ in San Antonio. "The two obviously have a relationship. her response to us and to law enforcement escalated up and down". Cummins' wife advised that Cummins had purportedly done this to meet their financial needs during his suspension from work without pay.

She reported that the money was missing, along with two handguns, clothes, and toiletry items.

"Subsequent investigation revealed that Cummins had falsified information on the application to obtain the loan". Cummins was seen on surveillance footage filling up the Nissan with gas at a nearby convenience store.

The investigation included more footage of Cummins and Thomas at the Guymon Walmart.

Fact: Investigators were looking into the possibility they were crossing the border.
