The California man who led police to Tad Cummins, ending a 38-day Amber Alert search for a Tennessee teen, will receive a $10,000 reward Friday.

Griffin Barry, who is a Tennessee native, called 911 after spotting Cummins at a remote cabin in northern California. He said Cummins made up a story about being from Colorado, having relocated after losing everything in a fire. 

Barry will receive $10,00 during a presentation in Columbia, Tenn., at 1 p.m.

He will also receive an additional $1,000 from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation because Cummins was on the state’s “Top 10 Most Wanted” list at the time of his arrest.
