Police had issued an Amber alert for Thomas and say they have warrants charging Cummins with sexual contact with a minor and aggravated kidnapping.  

Tennessee prosecutor Brent Cooper said Cummins left a note for his wife before disappearing, but officials think it was a diversion to mislead the investigation.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
