On March 13, 2017, authorities reported that fifteen-year-old Elizabeth Thomas was dropped off by some friends at local restaurant in Columbia, Tennessee. Since that moment, she hasn't been seen again.
Elizabeth is a young girl from Culleoka, Tennessee, and has been reported missing, with charges against her high school teacher, Tad Cummins. This abduction happened just two weeks after a student reported seeing the two kissing.
Elizabeth is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs around 120 pounds.
Tad Cummins (50 yrs.) is 6 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds. He is believed to be armed.
"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. In fact, it only heightens it," the official Amber Alert update states.
District Attorney Brent Cooper, who has jurisdiction of this case, gave the reasons for what made this case aggravated.
"This fifteen-year-old child that has led a difficult life, basically going against a fifty-year-old man. I believe it's clear at this point that her removal by him is unlawful. And what makes it aggravated is that he was in possession of firearms," Cooper said.
Investigators believe Cummins is hiding in secluded area or has left the southeast with Elizabeth.
