    TN - AMBER ALERT:Mary Catherine Elizabeth Thomas, 15, Maury County, 13 March 2017 # 4

    Witness at school considered Tad Cummins a ‘mentor,’ but reported seeing him kiss Elizabeth Thomas

    Elizabeth Thomas growled at the student who reported her for kissing former Culleoka teacher Tad Cummins inside his classroom, her family told The Daily Herald, but otherwise the two had no contact with the witness after she turned them in.

    Cummins was inside his classroom after school Jan. 23 with his grandson and Thomas, the girl told family members, when she walked in and inexplicably saw them kissing. Cummins and Thomas were sitting side by side in chairs and kissed on the lips as the grandchild, who also attends Culleoka, was using one of the classroom's computers.

    "She was shocked and walked out of the classroom," a family member said. "She didn't expect that. She didn't know why it was happening. She thought of Tad as someone who really cared about his students and had a hard time with what she saw. She went home, told her mother, and knew what she had to do — report him the next morning."

    TN - AMBER ALERT: Mary Catherine Elizabeth Thomas, 15, Maury County, 13 March 2017 #8

    Amber Alert: Family doesn’t think Elizabeth Thomas left willingly
    Published: March 29, 2017

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – While more than 1,000 tips have poured in to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, an Amber Alert remains in effect for Elizabeth Thomas and her former teacher Tad Cummins.

    Authorities held a joint press conference Tuesday where they stressed the relationship between Thomas and Cummins was not a romance.

    “Grooming, because that is exactly what was going on. You had a 50-year-old educated man who was obviously trying to convince this venerable 15-year-old girl that being in a relationship with him was the right thing to do,” said Cooper.

    <snip>

    DA Cooper said Tuesday that Mexican law enforcement was notified of the Amber Alert for Thomas. And while investigators say they don’t have any substantial tips that lead them to believe the two have crossed the border, but they are not ruling anything out.

    IIRC the father wasn't informed by the school at all. The sheriff went to his house 1 WEEK later and that's how he found out about the kiss.

Even if an admin checked, there might not have been any draft messages at the time.

    I believe it saved the drafts to the server and that is how LE found them. With your company email the IT person has the ability and companies have the authority, to read every single email of every single employee.

    I'm not sure if an IT person would not have thought to go through everything. If the school just said "give me the password" and looked through his emails, then sure that person might not have thought to even open the draft folder.

    I just looked at the letter.. 7 days after the kiss, LE informed ET's dad about the allegation of the kiss.

    When the child reported the kiss to the school, ET's father should have been notified immediately, there is no excuse for not notifying him of an allegation like that involving his daughter.

    Yup, I just pulled up the letter and found that. ET's father should have been called immediately after the allegation.

    Right. I would definitely want to look into those perceptions and find out what the teachers specific actions and statements were. I just don't want to generalize that any teacher not wearing a green ribbon in front of their class must be abstaining bc they support Tad.

    Usually teachers quickly distance themselves from other staff charged in a crime. If this isn't the case, the school should be very immediately and very diligently looking into the sister's report that teachers were being supportive of Tad.

    Here is the article where I first saw a second student and it being a grandchild. With this and the packet, I don't know if this 2nd student is the same 2nd student mentioned in the information the school put in TC's file about the allegation.

    I know.. I would just feel so much better if we could at least get a confirmed sighting or something. Nothing since the phone ping just gets me more concerned with each passing day.

    From this article, it seems unclear that the grandson was the "friend" who accompanied the student when she confronted TC. In fact, from this information, we don't know if the grandson was questioned (though I assume he was) or what he told the school he saw or didn't see.

    Right, that's what I said.. After reading the information from TC's employment file, I'm not sure if the 2nd student mentioned there is the 2nd student mentioned in the article.

    So we don't know if there were 3 students involved or just two.
