ABC 20/20 Tonight, Friday (December 2, 2022) A Two-Hour Program Features New Interviews with State and Federal Investigators, Prosecutors Who Brought Tad Cummins to Justice
This episode of “ABC 20/20” airs tonight December 2 at 9PM ET. In 2017, 50-year-old high school teacher Tad Cummins took his 15-year-old student Elizabeth Thomas from her small hometown in Tennessee after illicit behavior that began in his classroom came to light. Their disappearance prompted a 38-day national search, making headlines across the country. “20/20” examines the case with new interviews and police footage after ABC News correspondent Eva Pilgrim had the first on-camera interview with Thomas in 2018. The two-hour program provides a comprehensive look at the case, including the events leading up to the disappearance, never-before-released evidence from the month-long investigation that tracked the pair across the country, and the prosecution of Cummins.
