Tad Cummins, the Maury County man charged with kidnapping a 15-year-old former student and taking her with him on a cross-country trip, is being held in a Kentucky jail, WSMV-TV reports.

Cummins, 50, was being held in the Henderson County Detention Center in Henderson, Ky., according to the Nashville stations. Henderson County is about 140 miles north of Nashville.

It's not clear when Cummins will appear in court. He had been held in California since his arrest last month.

He's charged in federal court and in Maury County in connection with the mid March disappearance of the teen girl. They were missing about five weeks and finally found in remote Cecilville, Calif., in Siskiyou County.

A tip from a property caretaker in Northern California where they were staying helped lead to Cummins' arrest and the girl's recovery.

The girl was reported to be healthy and unharmed.

Cummins taught the girl at the Culleoka School in Maury County.
