More from Inside Edition: />On Instagram, right before Elizabeth Thomas, 15, allegedly disappeared with high school teacher Tad Cummins, 50, a week ago, she shared a meme from "Beauty and the Beast" which read, "Every Beauty Needs Her Beast to Protect Her From Everything But Him." Now the search is intensifying for the Tennessee teacher who is still on the run with his 15-year-old student. Cummins, the suspected kidnapper, also posted two memes on Instagram the same day. One said: "It's a beautiful day to start."

This is not 'every beauty needs a beast' , This is 'every dumbass being used by a perv'

Praying with candlelight? Seriously? And the old dude has two handguns? She'll have a hard time escaping him

I just stalked both of their Instagrams for the last hour because I have no life and I gotta say, it's really creepy. You can see their recent posts leading up to it clearly shows something was about to happen. Very weird.

it's kinda scary she's comparing herself to beauty and the beast
Gabriella Martinez
Yup. Sounds about white.

I'm so confused as to why she's being treated like the victim. I'm sure she's knows what she's doing and she could leave when she wants. 🙄

I blame Emma Watson. Arrest her
So this guy is dead, he can't work, or be seen in public any more. he goes to prison, she and him together means a fling for her and death to him. She can move on get married, start a family in 10 years she will have husband kids and a easy life. He will be abused in jail, living on the street or dead. and he will never be forgiven, a flirty women in her prime is very attractive to a old guy thats life.
I knew the first time I saw this story that this girl orchestrated this whole thing.
The family really wants this "pappy" back?
Just let her do her thing and leave this alone
It's the teens fault for seducing him
Probably calls him Daddy. Only in the south, Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn! lol well that's my two cents.

Why is this 50 year old adult male automatically guilty of statutory rape because a 15 year old girl fell in love with him and conned him into running away with her? Who is to judge that the love of a 15 year old for a 50 year old is not real? Everybody is different and the capacity to love differs with each individual. Can anyone say with certainty that this young lady's love for her 50 year old "hero" is less valid than her love for him if he was 16 years old? What about comparing her love for this 50 year old adult male to the "love" she might feel for him at age 25 when he is 60 years old? Or what about a 35-year-old female who "falls in love" with a 70 year old millionaire? Who gave others the right to judge a person's feelings and prosecute people according to generalized laws that impose restrictions on their feelings that cannot be measured by any known means?\ I'm no "pervert" and I don''t advocate relationships between teachers and their students, but I object to the implication that this man has committed a crime when such crime depends upon a supposed "victim" who qualifies as a victim only because she has lived 3 years less than the "age of consent" as arbitrarily required by law. What I see as "wrong" here is that the man is still married to a woman who had no idea of his plans to run off with another person. Her statement that "this is not who he is", indicates the marriage was not a good one. It is she, the wife, who didn't know who her husband was, and he apparently "found himself" through the love of his student. Relationships with great age differences don't have the best statistical chances of success but that doesn't excuse condemning every one solely based on the age differences of the participants.

She thinks she's akin to Belle... the fictional character?? Prime target for a pedophile such as this guy...

I see a lot of comments saying that she's old enough to know what she's doing and if she wanted to leave she could and that's probably true but obviously something is not right in her head for her to post the things she posted on her page and to view him the way she does no 15-year-old girl in her right mind would pick a man of his age as her choice. Maybe she didn't have a father in her life maybe she's looking for a father figure but in a sick way and it's sad that he's taking advantage of that. A girl her age can be easily manipulated and a man his age should know better. He's the one with the responsibility to do the right thing here.
She is completely clueless
Du_ hast mich
|cummins| tehehe hehehe..... lmao and she couldn't have run off with someone her own age?....papi is too anyways.

He bought black hair dye at a local Walmart. It's on surveillance cameras; look it up. He prepared for this because he was watching "survival" TV shows. Police believe the pair is heading to the FL panhandle because he posted pictures recently of beaches on his Instagram page.

Thank goodness they were able to exhume Nancy Graces body for this interview. Clearly what this guy is doing is wrong, but then you see his wife and you start to understand.
More dead Than yesterday
I think she should go to jail too, you go to jail for running away you'll surely go to jail for this
shes getting an education leave her alone !!!

what kind of teacher listens to a student say she is running away & doesn't report it to the school and the parents?! all he does is continue to lie. I do think that Elizabeth's family is being gracious and kind in regards to his family, his daughters love their dad.. has to be hard for them. in this world we live in today, is difficult to tell your children who to trust. Keep them close and show them how much you love them everyday.

His wife only wants him so she can give him the slap of his life and then divorce him.
