The Date is March 13th, Mary Catherine Elizabeth Thomas went missing from a restaurant in Columbia, TN after one of her friends dropped her there.
At this point she could be anywhere in U.S. She was initially thought to be in Tennessee or Alabama. The person she is thought to be with is none other than her former health science teacher at Culleoka Unit School in Tennessee, 50 year old Tad Cummins. Cummins is already wanted by the TBI (Tennessee Bureau of Investigations) for a recent charge of sexual misconduct with a minor.
Brent Cooper, the Maury County District Attorney stated that they were sending love letters via email on Cummins’ school pc. It was also reported that they were seen kissing just before they disappeared. According to sources, Thomas and Cummins had obvious romantic feelings for one another. Emails between the two contained graphic detail, mostly descriptions of young Thomas’body.
