COLLIERVILLE, TN (WKRN) –A reported sighting of Tad Cummins in a Memphis suburb was deemed not credible, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The former Maury County teacher remains the subject of an ongoing AMBER Alert for 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas.

Someone called authorities around 12:30 p.m. Thursday saying they believed they saw Cummins at a gas station in Collierville on New Byhalia Road near West Poplar Avenue. The spokesperson for the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office told News 2 a deputy checked the surveillance and confirmed it was Cummins.

The TBI now says it has been determined that person was, in fact, not the AMBER Alert suspect.
