Federal complaint on Tad Cummins' alleged sex crimes — GRAPHIC

Sheriff deputies in Siskiyou County on Thursday rescued Thomas and arrested Tad Cummins, 50, a former teacher at her school in Maury County, Tennessee, from a cabin near Yreka, California, about 60 miles (100 km) south of the OR border.

The cabin, authorities said, was a small, one-room building, and Cummins and Elizabeth appeared to have been sleeping on a foam mattress on the ground, the Siskiyou Daily News reported.

The cabin's caretaker alerted law enforcement to their presence and helped them hatch a plan to draw Cummins from the residence unarmed and without Thomas, the cabin's owner told CNN. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation received the tip around 11 p.m. Wednesday and the caller pointed authorities to a cabin in Cecilville, a rural area near the OR border with little to no cell service, TBI Public Information Officer Joshua Devine said. "So (I'll) try to help you out, '" Barry said.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn said Cummins is facing a "set of charges that could keep him behind bars for many years". The girl is expected to be returned to relatives in Tennessee Friday, her family says. An AMBER Alert was issued for her the next day.

Cummins faces state charges of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor as well as the federal charges.

Barry said Tad Cummins told him they had lost everything in a fire in Colorado and needed a place to stay.

During the pair's disappearance, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation circulated a split-screen photo of Elizabeth and Cummins.

Cummins faces state charges of aggravated kidnapping and a misdemeanor charge, and a federal charge of transporting a minor across state lines for the objective of sexual intercourse.

The girl was apparently healthy and unharmed, but authorities say their main concern is her emotional and mental state.

He said Cummins wouldn't let the girl talk.

The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office sent a tactical unit to the cabin Thursday morning. A day after they disappeared, he was sacked from his teaching job at Culleoka Unit School in Culleoka, Tennessee, where Elizabeth had been a student in his forensics class. His wife reported that two handguns and some clothes and toiletries were missing from their home.

Cummins allegedly then manipulated Elizabeth into leaving with him, stating "her future collegiate and work career was ruined, thus causing her to believe that her best option was to leave with him", the court filing adds.

Barry said Cummins also kept Thomas away from other people. She experienced a rollercoaster of emotions [.] Her response escalated during our interview with her.

"I had a photo of him that was the AMBER Alert and I was like, that's definitely the guy, and then we saw the auto as well and it matched up". I was taken aback by who she is.
