Tipster to receive $10000 reward in Tennessee teacher's arrest

Seven weeks before he and the girl left Tennessee to spark what became a nationwide manhunt, Cummins was observed on January 23 by another student at the Culleoka Unit School kissing the 15-year-old alleged victim, according to the complaint sworn out by Columbia, Tenn. police detective Jonathan R. Hardison.

Police arrested kidnapping suspect Tad Cummins in Siskiyou County, Calif., on Thursday, April 20.

He was detained as a flight risk and will be transported to Tennessee "as soon as possible", a U.S. Attorney's Office spokeswoman said.

Cummins admitted he had gotten a small watercraft and conducted a test run from San Diego to Mexico, where he planned to take the teenager, according to a federal complaint.

But Cummins' sister, Daphne Quinn, told NBC News on Sunday that she believed her brother had far less nefarious intentions.

After taking out a loan for $4,500, court records said, the teacher took the money and two handguns and wrote a note to his wife saying he needed to go to Virginia Beach or the Washington, D.C., area to clear his head.

The Middle Tennessee native who ultimately led California police to missing Elizabeth Thomas and Tad Cummins will receive a cash reward later this week. They were reunited over the weekend, but her sister and father said they have been shying away from details of the teenager's ordeal.

Frost Advisory issued for early Sunday morning
Northern lower MI is under a Freeze Warning Monday morning as temperatures are expected to drop into the low to mid 20s. The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for most of West Virginia, Kentucky and OH early Monday.

Documents also revealed that Cummins fled Tennessee because he was anxious an investigation would ruin his relationship with the teen.

He offered minimal responses as he was advised of his rights and the charges that could send him to prison for 10 years to life. He faces one federal count of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in sexual activity across state lines.

But the difference was also noticeable in the expression in his daughter's face, Anthony Thomas said. Cummins' attorney has said the girl went with her teacher willingly, and was not forced, threatened or coerced.

The Tennessee teacher was arrested Thursday and the teen was recovered in Northern California after a nationwide search.

Barry later saw a picture of the two, recognized them and alerted authorities, who took Cummins into custody at the cabin.

The prosecutors say Cummins "made a number of damaging admissions to law enforcement that provide alarming insight into his mentality" during his post-arrest interviews.

The teacher would later be reprimanded on February 3 by school principal Penny Love after the girl was seen in Cummins' classroom for a little more than half an hour that day. "She may not be exactly ... the person she was, because there's a lot of experiences she's had". "We'll make sure she'll get what therapy she needs and that she's safe, that she knows she's safe".
