He was wanted for the March abduction of 15 year old Elizabeth Thomas, a student of his at Culleoka Unit School in Maury County, an hour south of Nashville, Tennessee. Authorities say Thomas is now safe. NATS FROM FATHER: "He stole my daughter from me. He didn't just steal from me. He stole from the Maury County community." The community had been on edge since her parents reported Elizabeth missing on March 13th. Surveillance video captured images of Cummins' vehicle at this gas station south of Nashville that day. Siskiyou County officials say they spotted the same vehicle Wednesday night, and arrested Cummins the following day.
