    Amber Alert: Elizabeth Thomas found safe in Northern California; Former teacher arrested
    Apr 20, 2017

    The TBI says they have found missing 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas safe in Northern California.

    Her former teacher, Tad Cummins, has been arrested in connection to her kidnapping.

    A spokesperson for the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department said Cummins' Nissan Rogue was found late Wednesday night. The vehicle's original license plate had been removed, but officials were able to confirm the vehicle through its VIN.

    Curious about the kidnapping, is that going to be a charge because of her age? From what i have read it appears she went willingly. Jmo

    The man who tipped off authorities and led them to a former Tennessee teacher accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old student said there were "clues" that made him suspicious of the pair.

    Griffin Barry came across Elizabeth Thomas and her alleged abductor, Tad Cummins, at a gas station in far northern California when they were needing money for gas, food and a place to stay.

    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    " Barry said Cummins and Thomas were looking for the Black Bear Ranch Commune but were flat broke and out of gas.

    “I put some gas in his car and gave him 40 dollars and said if it doesn’t work come back I’ll feed you you, know what I mean?” said Barry.

    They reportedly made it to the ranch, but members of the commune knew something was amiss.

    “I feel a little funny because there were all kinds of indications that there was something a little funny going on never occurred to me that she was 15 year old, they said she was 22, I thought… yeah,” said Peter LaughingWolf.

    LaughingWolf said when the commune told Cummins it wouldn’t be a good fit for the commune, he reportedly stormed off with his young victim.

    “What really should have been a clue that something was wrong was that he got so angry when that was shared with them,” added LaughingWolf.

    Cummins and Thomas went back to the property Barry tends and he said they could stay in his cabin if they agreed to work on the property."

    Cummins told arresting officers that he felt relief.

    Cummins' extradition would likely take weeks to arrange.

    A US Attorney said his office will add a federal charge against Cummins, for transportation of a minor across state lines for sexual intercourse. That offense carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    If a Federal case (vs state) there will not be any cameras in the courtroom, and longer sentence potentially. My guess is they will go for federal charges first. Good, as not too happy with potential state trial and that "friend" DA and jury pool.

In every interview I watched of JC I wasn't convinced she would truly divorce him but would eventually welcome him back.

    His family is all he has and he will manipulate his way back into it. He will have her believing it wasn't his fault and he's so sorry. I'm 99.9% positive she will support and standby him like Dottie Sandusky. She reminds me so much of her. Too nice, gentle, loving and probably very gullible. Sadly, he probably knew in the end she would forgive and take him back. She would always be there.
    I sure hope she has had enough time to process exactly what he has done and how that reflects on what she thought her marriage was. If she stands by him, she stands to lose a lot. His legal fees alone will put them so far in the hole that they'll never recover. They already took out a loan to cover his suspension alone. It could also have ramifications on her job too. TC put the school in a very bad position and they face lawsuits because of it, to have her standing behind him could be more than they can tolerate and have her one the payroll too. As some of the details come out the town holdouts (I hope) would find it difficult to continue to thing TC is that wonderful guy. IMO JC has a lot more to lose if she stays with TC. Best thing she can do for herself and her family is to put lots of distance between themselves and that self-centered loser. If she doesn't, then she deserves the misery she will get.

    Why would she stand behind him? She divorced him, then if she stands behind him the divorce is a farce and was only filed for monetary reasons on her part.

    She's 15, even if she went willingly it's not the same as if someone is 18, of legal age, and goes willingly. As a 15 year old, she is underaged, hence, against the law for the adult involved in taking her over state lines.

    Soooo thankful they were found. Given they were running out of options, food, gas etc. It sickened and frightened me that TC had 2 handguns with him. I feared a bad outcome as time went on.

    She hasn't divorced him yet. She filed. The process can be lengthy. Now that TC is in custody and facing a boatload of charges, I would suspect he will go into emotional vampire mode and start working on JC and his parents etc. to drum up whatever money and support he can get. As surprising as it may seem, skilled manipulators and narcissists are masters at distorting the facts and making people doubt what they know is fact. JC has spent over 30 years with TC, that tells me a lot. IMO I think there is a chance she could fall back into old patterns of behavior, especially if others close to her are expecting her to stand by him.

    Given the fact that TC still has many supporters, especially among ET's young peers, I worry about the reception she will face back at home. She deserves and requires tenderness and understanding from everyone around her. I hope she can be shielded from negative people. She has been let down time and time again by the system. Much luck to her and her loved ones.

    Best post of the day was on the last thread where you said he had every opportunity to end this at any time, the relief bit doesn't ring true. You said it much better, but that was the gist.

    I don't know what JC will or won't do. I imagine she's feeling a lot of things, that I will never understand. I imagine her location and religious beliefs could add other difficult emotions and feelings. (JMO.)

    With all that said...divorcing someone, because they have or are going to financially ruin you...is not a farce. It's a very valid reason to divorce someone, IMO. I would divorce him for a whole laundry list of other reasons, but if that happened to be her reason I'd have no issues with it.

    Tad Cummins (Courtesy: Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office)
    http://wwlp.com/2017/04/21/man-helpe...zabeth-thomas/

    As of Friday morning, Cummins remains in custody in California.

    Meanwhile, the Sheriff said Elizabeth is healthy and she'll be brought home Friday.

    “I would say [Thomas was] more emotional about the situation. It was probably a relief to some degree that the ordeal was over. But that's kind of speculative, but she was emotional at times, sometimes stoic. And it just kind of shifted back and forth.”
