Father of Tennessee girl says he is overjoyed

Thomas told News 2 he was in Nashville when he started getting text messages and calls that his 15-year-old daughter had been found.

"Jill will attempt to move forward with her life", attorney Michael Cox said in a statement provided to ABC News on March 31.

Teacher Tad Cummins took guns, money and his wife's vehicle before kidnapping a 15-year-old female student and taking her on a 2,500-mile cross-country journey that ended Thursday, court records show.

Cummins surrendered to police on Thursday near a remote cabin in Cecilville, California.

According to Barry, Siskiyou County deputies enlisted Barry's help in getting the two out of the cabin by going and waking them up to go back for rocks.

The school system didn't suspend Cummins until February 6. It's just one of the surprising revelations from the federal criminal complaint against Cummins in the sensational case. An investigation was opened.

January 27 - Thomas was removed from Cummins' class.

January 31, 2017: The school is notified Cummins is under criminal investigation.

February 3 - MCPS received an allegation that Cummins had been in contact with Thomas despite explicit directives from his supervisor. An AMBER Alert had been issued for Elizabeth. Law enforcement officers arrested Cummins.

The pair was the subject of an ongoing AMBER Alert, and investigators had said they were "off the grid".

Tennessee is taking steps to extradite him.

The student, Elizabeth Thomas, has been rescued, officials said.

Information surfaced saying Thomas warned a sibling before her disappearance.

Thomas' brother pleads for her safe return.

March 21 - TBI revealed a "troubling pattern of behavior" with Cummins.

Maury County Schools released a timeline of their investigation.

The Maury County Schools formed a Task Force in response to the AMBER Alert. If the press conference is not live streamed from the TBI's Facebook page, it will be streamed from their affiliates' sites.

March 27 - A former student of Cummins spoke out.

"They were going to try and contain him but thought, 'Naw, he's supposed to be armed and risky.'" Cummins was on Tennessee's 10 Most Wanted list.

Two days later the two appeared on video at a Walmart store in Oklahoma.

While Cummins was on the run, his wife, Jill Cummins, filed for divorce.

The friend told him something didn't seem right, O'Hare said.

Wednesday, April 12, 2017: A prosecutor asked pharmacy employees to be on the lookout for Cummins and Thomas.

Cummins and Thomas had been in the cabin for about a week.

The girl was found safe on Thursday and the teacher was arrested. The teen was last seen at a local restaurant and her family reported her missing that afternoon.
