Father of missing Tennessee teen found safe says she was brainwashed

Jill would like to specifically thank the Maury County Sheriff Department and individually thank Bucky Rowland and Nathan Johns for how they handled the investigation and search for Tad Cummins and Elizabeth Thomas.

He will be arraigned at Siskiyou County Superior Court, likely on Friday, before being extradited to Tennessee.

"We are so thankful that they have both been found safe", Daphne Quinn, Tad Cummins' sister, told NBC News.

The Maury County Public Schools Facebook post comes in the wake of complaints from the girl's family that the school system did not respond properly after a student at the Culleoka Unit School reported seeing teacher Tad Cummins kissing the 15-year-old student.

Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the TBI and the Maury County Sheriff's Office flew the 15-year-old back to Tennessee on a private airplane sometime late Thursday night or early Friday morning. The student described the kiss to officials as a romantic peck rather than a father-daughter type kiss. Authorities said a 15-year-old Tennessee girl who disappeared with Cummins, who was her teacher, last month has been found safe in California and the teacher has been arrested.

The caretaker reports that Thomas would not get out of the vehicle and would only communicate by whispering in Cummins' ear. Cummins and the girl disappeared March 13 as a police investigation into their relationship was heating up.

Lopey said that at the time of the arrest, Elizabeth "was emotional at times, sometimes stoic". The school district retrieved Cummins' school issued laptop and iPad from him. The iPad was turned over to detectives. Investigators later determined the interview was not actually scheduled.

After taking out a loan for US$4500 [NZ$6400], the records say, the teacher took the money and two handguns and wrote a note to his wife saying he needed to go to Virginia Beach or the Washington DC area to clear his head. "I forgive him and I still love him".

The night before the arrest, "a plan was hatched" to capture Cummins, O'Hare told CNN. Cummins was seen on surveillance footage filling up the Nissan with gas at a nearby convenience store.

Meanwhile, the California man who alerted law enforcement and led them to the pair told Good Morning America that several clues made him suspicious about them.
