TBI has released more pictures of Cummins and his auto in hopes someone recognizes him.

Authorities are asking pharmacy employees to keep an eye out for Tad Cummins, who vanished along with teen Elizabeth Thomas on March 13.

Thomas went missing from Columbia, TN, last month. Cooper is urging Elizabeth to call her family.

Thomas and her former teacher, 50-year-old Tad Cummins, disappeared on March 13.

Have either been seen since the kidnapping?

The Maury County District Attorney General Brent Cooper said he's willing to jeopardize his criminal case against accused kidnapper Tad Cummins.

For now, authorities say the pair could be "anywhere", but advised people to be particularly observant around rural and remote areas like campgrounds and parks.


Wayne County Now reports that investigators are telling pharmacists to be on the lookout for Cummins. Cummins, believed to be armed with multiple guns, is a white male possibly with dark hair and brown eyes.

Over time, signs point to some sort of romantic relationship developing.

A note left behind for Cummins' wife is believed to have been an attempt to buy time and lead investigators in the wrong direction.

Cummins had been suspended in February from his teaching duties after the pair was discovered in his classroom.

Law enforcement officials also stated that during a search of Tad's online history, they found he had researched teen marriage online and the age of consent.

Bottom line, we want to get that information on the table so we can vet that information, said Jason Whatley, the family's attorney.
