Author­i­ties search for miss­ing 15-year-old

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

The wife of a former Ten­nessee school­teacher ac­cused of kid­nap­ping a 15-year-old stu­dent is plead­ing for her hus­band to bring the girl home.

The Ten­nessee Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion said it is “ex­tremely con­cerned” about the well-be­ing of El­iz­a­beth Thomas, who was last seen Monday in Columbia. Tad Cum­mins was placed on the TBI’s Top 10 Most Wanted List.

A statewide Am­ber Alert from the TBI said Cum­mins “may have been abus­ing his role as a teacher to groom this vul­ner­a­ble young girl for some time in an ef­fort to lure and po­ten­tially sex­u­ally ex­ploit her.”

Jill Cum­mins on Fri­day asked her hus­band to turn him­self in and bring the teen home.
