Tennessee Amber Alert: Family of Elizabeth Thomas makes legal plea for more information

Desperate search under way for 15-year-old girl abducted by a former teacher

 

A courthouse hearing for missing AMBER Alert teen Elizabeth Thomas will be held this morning as the Thomas family pleas for more information.

Thomas' father is petitioning the Maury County court to have witnesses and those who might have information in the case to come forward.

In documents filed by the family last week, the family claims Thomas' abductor -former teacher Tad Cummins- threatened Thomas, groomed her, and stalked her.

The family is calling for people who might have information to step forward in an effort to document what they know. The family states in the document "with each passing week that Cummins and the child are gone, the memories of these witnesses potentially become less clear and more subject to ultimate scrutiny when the above causes of action are heard at trial."
