Tennessee authorities have determined that the recent images shared by police in Nebraska were not the Amber Alert suspect and the missing teenager. 

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation tweeted Monday that the images shared by the Kearney Police Department on their Facebook page are not 50-year-old Tad Cummins and 15-year-old Elizabeth Thomas.

Officials with Kearney Police released photos Sunday after they received a report of a possible sighting in the area.
