There are new details that could help authorities catch Ted Cummins, who is still at large after allegedly fleeing with his 15-year-old student Elizabeth Thomas. According to WKRN, Cummins' wife is speaking out about a medical issue he has that could narrow the month-long search.
District Attorney Brent Cooper shared that Cummins' wife, Jill, revealed that her husband is on medicine for blood pressure. According to her, he should need a refill. Cooper has encouraged pharmacies to keep an eye out for Cummins who may stop in to refill that prescription.
It has also been reported that Cummins left a note for his wife on the day of his disappearance. Complete details of the note have not been made public, since Cooper believes the note was a diversion to mislead the investigation.
The hunt for Ted Cummins and Elizabeth Thomas has made national headlines. Numerous reports have emerged that show a romantic relationship with the 50-year-old former teacher and the 15-year-old. Cummins and Thomas have been missing since March 13. Her Instagram account has been updated with claims that she is now a wife.
