Missing Tennessee girl, 15, spotted with teacher in Oklahoma

Missing Tennessee girl, 15, spotted with teacher in Oklahoma

But about an hour later, Josh DeVine, a spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation - which has final say in making such determinations - said the agency had determined that it was a false alarm.

The TBI released information on a confirmed sighting of Cummins and the teen in Oklahoma City on March 15.

He is on the TBI's Top 10 Most Wanted list.

One of Elizabeth's schoolmates reported seeing her and Cummins kiss in his classroom on January 23, according to a school district investigative report, but both denied the claim.

Maury County District Attorney Brent Cooper tells ABC that the 50-year-old Cummins, who allegedly kidnapped Elizabeth more than two weeks ago, is a "religious man" who might be posing as a missionary.

Thomas was reported missing on March 13, after she asked a friend to drop her off at a local Shoney's. The surveillance images of Cummins and Thomas are the first obtained by investigators since the alleged kidnapping on March 13. The TBI says Cummins appears to have darkened his hair.

A warrant has been issued for Cummins for Sexual Contact with a Minor and Aggravated Kidnapping. Officials from the TBI said she was "groomed" and kidnapped by her teacher, Cummins. "Some have characterized this as a romance", said the Director of the TBI, Mark Gwyn.

Cummins and Thomas left love notes for each other on his classroom computer at Culleoka School before vanishing. Police believe Cummins picked her up from there and absconded.

News Channel 11's sister station WKRN spoke with Elizabeth Smart's father Wednesday night about the similarities between his daughter's case and Elizabeth Thomas's case.

Authorities have yet to determine what vehicle they were traveling in. "She is 5'5" tall and weighs 120 pounds.

Thomas has blonde hair and hazel eyes.

The teen was last seen wearing a flannel shirt and black leggings.

Cummins was seen driving a Silver Nissan Rogue with Tennessee license plate 976ZPT, according to the TBI.

According to investigators, Cummins has brown eyes and is 6-feet-tall and about 200 pounds.
