New court documents say Amber Alert Elizabeth Thomas felt like she was in over her head, and felt threatened by Tad Cummins.
Papers were filed in Maury County court by the family of Tennessee Amber Alert Elizabeth Thomas. These papers say the teen expressed to her siblings and friends she was "in over her head," and that the ex-forensics teacher Tad Cummins allegedly threatened the teen.
According to the family, Cummins had picked Thomas up from her father's home on "more than one occasion," threatening that if she did not go with him, "she would face repercussions at school."
On the morning of her disappearance, Thomas told her friend who dropped her off at Shoney's restaurant she wanted to be taken back home and she was "having second thoughts about spending the day with him." Thomas told the friend the person she was meeting was a teenager named "Thomas," who is now believed to really be Cummins.
There have been other statements made towards Thomas by Cummins which the family says were threats, "coercion, intimidation, and fraud exacted upon the child."
After Cummins was on suspension from school, the family said he would visit Thomas quite often at her work. Sometimes Thomas would hide from Cummins and ask employees to lie about her presence at work to avoid him. The family says, "Cummins was stalking the child." After the kissing incident, Cummins allegedly stated other lies about himself, claiming he was a millionaire and former special forces soldier.
An Amber Alert remains in effect for both of them and Cummins is currently listed as one of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted.
Elizabeth Thomas is a white female possibly with red hair and hazel eyes. She is 5 feet and weighs around 120 pounds.
Cummins, is believed to be armed with multiple guns, is a white male with brown hair and eyes. He is six feet and around 200 pounds.
They could be traveling in a silver Nissan Rogue with Tennessee tag 976-ZPT.
