The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation announced Amber Alert suspect Tad Cummins has been arrested, and the teen he is accused of kidnapping, Elizabeth Thomas, is safe.
The two disappeared on March 13th.
Tad Cummins was Elizabeth Thomas's teacher.
They were found in Northern California. The town's name is Salmon River. It is described as being an extremely rural area.
The car the two were using was located this morning. They were located a bit later. News stations in California report Cummins was taken into custody without incident.
The TBI worked more than 2,000 tips.
Elizabeth Thomas is 15. Tad Cummins is 50, married, and a grandfather. His wife has since filed for divorce.
The two were reportedly spotted kissing at school by another student.
“This is not a fairytale. It’s a case of kidnapping," TBI Director Mark Gwyn said. “She is 15; a child. He is 50; a grown man. She’s a high school freshman. He’s a former teacher. This is not a romance.”
