It’s been more than a week, and it appears authorities are no closer than before to catching up with 50 year old ex-teacher Tad Cummins, and 15 year old Elizabeth Thomas, his former student.
At this point, it’s believed that the pair, rather than trying to blend in in larger cities, may be hiding out in very remote secluded areas such as campgrounds, parks or even large parking lots or garages.
Cummins, who according to law enforcement is believed to be armed with several guns and may still be driving a silver Nissan Rogue with the Tennessee tag 976-ZPT.
Cummins is six feet tall weighs approximately 200 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes – Thomas is five-feet-five and weighs around 120 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes.
Thomas was last seen wearing a flannel shirt and black leggings, when a friend dropped her off at a Shoney’s Restaurant in Columbia, Tennessee, the morning of March 13th – Cummins last known location was Decatur, Alabama later that same day.
According to CNS News reports prior to March 13th Cummins had conducted several online searches for “teen marriage”.
