Search continues for missing teen, teacher from TN

TENNESSEE (WSLS 10) – The search continues this afternoon for a Tennessee teenager and the teacher who police say kidnapped her.

Investigators say that 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas was last seen on Monday near Nashville and is believed to be in imminent danger.

They believe she was taken by her former high school teacher, Tad Cummins.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has received about 175 tips so far.

Investigators say that Cummins may have “groomed” Elizabeth by abusing his position as a teacher and possibly sexually exploiting her while carefully planning the disappearance.
