Rescued teen showed no anger toward her teacher

(KRON) The sheriff of a northern California county says a 15-year-old Tennessee girl who was allegedly kidnapped by her teacher was “laughing, crying and acting stoic” after deputies found her at the remote cabin.

Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon E. Lopey tells the Associated Press that she did not exhibit any anger toward her teacher.

Police say teacher Tad Cummins kidnapped the girl from Columbia, Tennessee, on March 13. Cummins was arrested Thursday after a tip led police to the cabin in Cecilville, California.

The sheriff said the girl showed no signs of elation when she and Cummins were found. He said she did not act like a rescued person.

He said the two were staying in the cabin and doing work for a land caretaker in exchange for food and fuel.

The father of the girl says he thinks his daughter was brainwashed.

Cummins faces state charges of aggravated kidnapping and sexual contact with a minor as well as a federal charge of taking a minor across state lines to have sex.
