Police look for Tennessee teacher, missing teen in Texas


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Corpus Christi, Texas, are looking for a Tennessee school teacher and a student he's accused of kidnapping.

Senior Officer Travis Pace says authorities in Tennessee shared a tip with the Corpus Christi Police that a vehicle matching the description of teacher Tad Cummins' car was seen in the city's North Beach area.

Pace said police have not spotted the 50-year-old health sciences teacher or the missing teen, but officers are reviewing surveillance video from a convenience store.

School records show Cummins taught forensics to 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas, who was last seen on March 13.
