Missing in Florida: Haleigh Cummings, Age 5
Posted at 10:13 AM Feb 10, 2009
 
Haleigh Cummings, age 4
Thousands are gathering in Orlando or watching TV this morning, remembering Caylee Anthony. In another part of Florida, another child has vanished, and this time there was no one-month delay in reporting the disappearance.

Haleigh Cummings, age 5, was last seen around 10 p.m. Monday night in Satsuma, Florida. Haleigh was staying with her father and his girlfriend. The little girl's father was at work when she vanished.

Putnam County officials said there was no sign of forced entry into the house, but they didn't know if all the doors and windows were locked when Haleigh disappeared.

Haleigh was wearing a pink shorts and a tan shirt. She is 3 feet tall, has blond hair, brown eyes and pierced ears.

There are few details available about this disappearance, but CBS47.com reports that "[police] believe Cummings may be endangered." Authorities are searching in and around the Hermit's Cove area in Satsuma [see map below -- also, the name of the community has been misreported as "Hermus." The Ocala paper linked in paragraph 2 above states that Haleigh was staying at a home in the Buffalo Bluff neighborhood].

If you have any information pertaining to the whereabouts of Haleigh Cummings, you can call the Putnam County Sheriff: (386) 329-0808 or 1-888-FL-MISSING. [MissingKids.com]

I will update and/or revise this post as needed.

Haleigh Cummings, 4, was last seen at 10 p.m. Monday in the bedroom of her Satsuma home. (MISSINGKIDS.COM / February 10, 2009)


An Amber Alert has been issued for a missing Putnam County girl.

Haleigh Cummings, 5, was last seen at 10 p.m. Monday in the bedroom of the Satsuma home where she lives with her father, Ronald Cummings and his girlfriend, Misty Croslin.

Ronald Cummings was working Monday night, and Croslin woke up and realized Haleigh was missing just before he returned home at about 3:30 a.m. this morning, according to Lt. Johnny Greenwood of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office. Croslin alerted authorities while Ronald Cumming searched for his daughter, Greenwood said.

Haleigh's mother lives in Georgia and was there when Haleigh went missing, Greenwood said.


Check out Orlando Sentinel blogs Greenwood said that deputies are searching the area near Haleigh's home and speaking with her family members. It's too soon to know whether she was abducted by a stranger, and there were no signs that her home had been broken into he said.

"At this point, all we know is that we have a missing little girl," he said.

Haleigh is three feet tall, weighs 39 pounds, and has blonde hair and brown eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a pink shirt and underwear. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at 386-329-0808.

Authorities in northeast Florida are questioning the father of a missing 5-year-old girl who his girlfriend says wasn't in her bed when they checked on her Tuesday morning, police told FOXNews.com.

Putnam County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Jason Nettles said he didn't have information on whether or not Haleigh Cummings' father and girlfriend are suspects in her disappearance.

"I don't know that for sure," he told FOXNews.com.

But he said he believed they were being questioned by police. The child lived with the couple in Putnam County, Fla.

Investigators were also questioning others in the case, according to Nettles.

An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday for Haleigh, and authorities with dogs were hunting for signs of the girl, who apparently disappeared before dawn.

Haleigh was reported missing after her father's girlfriend told police she discovered the child wasn't in her bed about 3:30 a.m.

The woman said the door to the home was not locked at the time, Nettles said.

Several registered sex offenders reportedly live in the vicinity of the missing girl's home in Satsuma, Fla.

Nettles said he couldn't confirm whether authorities were worried a sex offender might have abducted Haleigh.

"I don't think they've ruled anything out," he said.

He declined to comment on one report that put the number of registered sex offenders nearby at 25 because he said he didn't know how wide an area was being considered.

Haleigh is 3 feet tall with blond hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt.

Anyone with information about the girl is urged to contact the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at (386) 329-0800 or 911.

SATSUMA, FL -- A massive search is underway in Putnam County for a missing 5-year-old girl.

An Amber Alert has been issued for Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma.

She hasn't been seen since 10 p.m. Monday when she went to bed.

Haleigh lives in a mobile home community called River Villa. It's on Green Lane in the Hermits Cove area of Satsuma, just off Buffalo Bluff Road and U.S. 17.

The little girl was home with her father's girlfriend and a 2-year-old sibling. The Putnam County Sheriff's Office says the girl's father was at work in Palatka until about 3 a.m.

Haleigh's father told First Coast News he came home from work and discovered his daughter missing.

"She's afraid of the dark," said Ronald Cummings. "She didn't leave my house. Somebody came in my back door and stole my child while I was at work."

Mr. Cummings said when he came home he found signs of forced entry to his home, but investigators with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said they didn't find anything to suggest a break-in.

The sheriff's office said Haleigh's bedroom door was open when her father's girlfriend woke up to go check on her at about 3:45 a.m.

Investigators haven't said what stirred the father's girlfriend at that hour, but authorities say she called 911 when she discovered Haleigh missing from her room.

"It's unspeakable," said Marie Griffis, Haleigh's grandmother. "You see it on TV and then it happens to you."

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says Haleigh had on a pink shirt and underwear.

She is three feet tall and weighs 39 pounds.

The girl's mother drove in from where she lives in Glen St Mary to Putnam County to talk with authorities.

Helicopters and boats from a number of agencies are looking for Haleigh. Authorities are searching cars leaving the neighborhood. The FBI is also assisting in the investigation.

If you have any information on where Cummings is, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and you could receive a cash reward of up to $1,000.

5-Year-Old Vanishes From Bedroom; Father Says She Was 'Stolen'

Detective: 'Whoever Has The Child Is Not Supposed To Have The Child'

POSTED: Tuesday, February 10, 2009
UPDATED: 5:05 pm EST February 10, 2009


Haleigh Cummings
 VIDEO:
100s Search For Missing Satsuma Girl
UNCUT: Father's Emotional Interview 
 
SATSUMA, Fla. -- More than 130 law enforcement personnel from several local and state agencies are searching for a 5-year-old girl who disappeared from her home in Satsuma before dawn Tuesday.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office said Haleigh Ann-Marie Cummings was last seen at 10 p.m. Monday when her father's girlfriend put her to bed at their home on Green Lane, off Buffalo Bluff Road.

While deputies and state officers from at least five agencies searched the area and the nearby St. Johns River, Haleigh's grieving father told Channel 4 there is no doubt in his mind that she was abducted and he'll do anything to get her back.

Ronald Cummings said Haleigh is afraid of the dark and there's no way she would have gone out in the middle of the night by herself.

"I came home this morning to find that I didn't have a child," Cummings. "Somebody stole my child."

Putnam County deputies began a search of the area at 3:30 a.m. after the mother found the girl missing and Cummings came home from working a night shift and found back door of their mobile home open and called 911.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued an endangered/missing alert before 9 a.m. Less than two hours later, authorities upgraded it to an Amber Alert.

While Putnam County deputies said there was no sign of forced entry in the residence, they requested that the FDLE elevate the incident to an Amber Alert.

Putnam County deputies, with help from officer from neighboring counties and state agencies stopped and searched cars leaving the neighborhood where Haleigh disappeared.
 
"When you're dealing with a child of this young of an age along with the time frame that the child has been gone, that elevates it to a higher level and that causes us a little more of a concern for the welfare and safety of the child," Putnam County Sheriff's Office Capt. Steve Rose said.

Rose said that while they have no reason to suspect foul play, deputies went door to door and searched cars leaving the neighborhood and contacted known sex offenders in the area to establish their whereabouts. They also brought K-9 unit in to track any leads.

"Whoever has the child is not supposed to have the child at this point," Putnam County Detective John Murch said during an afternoon news conference.

St. Johns and Volusia counties sent resources to help and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has contributed two boats and a helicopter to the search. A Jacksonville Sheriff's Office search boat is also helping out.

Late afternoon, authorities announced that the FBI was sending a team to join the investigation.

Haleigh is described as having blond hair and brown eyes, is 3 feet tall and weighs 39 pounds. She was last seen in the Hermit's Cove area of Satsuma wearing a pink shirt and underwear.

Channel 4 learned that a 2-year-old and a 17-year-old cousin were sleeping in the same bedroom as Haleigh. They are both safe and detectives said the teenager had no information about what happened to Haleigh.

Haleigh's mother, who lives in south Georgia, went to Satsuma on Tuesday and was cooperating in the search.

Authorities ask anyone with any information to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at 386-329-0800 or the FDLE's Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 888-FL-MISSING.

"Please call and give (information) to the police department," Cummings said. "J just want my child back."

Police Question Father of Missing Florida Girl, 5
Tuesday , February 10, 2009

Investigators in northeast Florida have questioned the father of a missing 5-year-old girl who his girlfriend says wasn't in her bed when they checked on her Tuesday morning, police told FOXNews.com.

Putnam County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Jason Nettles said he didn't have information on whether or not Haleigh Cummings' father and girlfriend are suspects in her disappearance.

"I don't know that for sure," he told FOXNews.com.

Both were questioned Tuesday by authorities. The child lived with the couple in Putnam County, Fla.

"The girlfriend and the father are cooperating with police," Special Agent Steve Donaway of the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement told an afternoon news conference.

Investigators also were interviewing others in the case, according to Nettles — including sex offenders in the area.

An Amber Alert was issued Tuesday for Haleigh, and authorities with dogs and ground search crews were hunting in the nearby river and woods for signs of the girl, who apparently disappeared before dawn.

"It could be an abduction. We're looking at it from all angles," Donaway said. Leads have been minimal, he said, and investigators are asking for the public's help.

Haleigh was reported missing after her father's girlfriend told police she discovered the child wasn't in her bed about 3 a.m.

The woman said the back door to the home was not locked at the time. Police found the door to the residence unlocked when they arrived at the house, according to Donaway.

Several registered sex offenders reportedly live in the vicinity of the missing girl's home in Satsuma, Fla. Donaway said they've all been identified, and either have been or will be interviewed by police.

Nettles said he couldn't confirm whether authorities were worried a sex offender might have abducted Haleigh.

"I don't think they've ruled anything out," he told FOXNews.com.

He declined to comment on one report that put the number of registered sex offenders nearby at 25 because he said he didn't know how wide an area was being considered.

Haleigh is 3 feet tall with blond hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt.

Donaway said search teams would continue to look for the child through the night.

Anyone with information about the girl is urged to contact the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at (386) 329-0800 or 911.

Night Search Underway for Missing Girl


SATSUMA, FL -- The search for missing Haleigh Cummings will continue under the cover of darkness in the neighborhood where she disappeared early Tuesday morning.

Cummings was reported missing by her father when he returned home from work in Palatka after 3 a.m.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office says a rear door to the trailer was found open. The girl's father, Ronald Cummings, told First Coast News the door was forced open.

Law enforcement from neighboring counties and the FBI assisted in the search with helicopters and boats. Search teams combed the woods and divers worked the waters of the nearby St. Johns River.

Nancy Bump lives on the neighborhood and knew something had happened when she heard a helicopter circling overhead before sunrise.

Bump says search dogs led investigators to the river near her home.

"They walked right down to the end of the dock and ever since then they have been looking in the water," said Bump.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement first issued a Missing Child Alert before upgrading it to an Amber Alert for the missing girl. Haleigh was last seen wearing a pink shirt and underwear. Call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS. You'll remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 if your information leads to an arrest.

Family, Friends Pray As Search For Missing 5-Year-Old Continues

POSTED: Tuesday, February 10, 2009
UPDATED: 11:58 pm EST February 10, 2009


Haleigh Cummings
 VIDEO:
100s Search For Missing Satsuma Girl
UNCUT: Father's Emotional Interview
UNCUT: Family Calls 911, Reports 5-Year-Old Missing 
 
SATSUMA, Fla. -- After the sun set on Tuesday, the bright lights came on at the Putnam County Command Center near the home where 5-year-old Haleigh Ann-Marie Cummings was last seen.

Local detectives and even investigators with the FBI remained at the scene and said they would continue to feverishly work the case throughout the night.

According to detectives, when dealing with missing children, the first 24 hours are crucial. At 10 p.m. on Tuesday, investigators said they were very aware that it had been a full day since Haleigh was last seen and they were working hard to make every minute count toward finding the missing girl.

"We feel good about what we're doing, but we feel really desperate that 24 hours have passed now and we don’t have a clue where this child is," said PCSO Major Gary Bowling.

Haleigh was last seen in her Satsuma home on Green Lane with her 2-year-old brother and her father's 17-year-old girlfriend. The girlfriend told police she put the children to bed at 10 p.m. Monday but when she awoke at 3 a.m. to use the bathroom Haleigh was missing and the back door of the home was open.

The 17-year-old called 911 for help as Haleigh's father returned home from an overnight shift at work:

CALLER: I just woke up and my back door was all open and I can't find my daughter.

DISPATCH: Can't find what?

CALLER: My daughter.

DISPATCH:Ok. When did you last see her?

CALLER: Um, we just like, you know, it was about 10 o'clock. She was sleeping (inaudible).

DISPATCH: Ok. How old is your daughter?

CALLER: She's 5.

DISPATCH: OK. What was she last seen wearing, Ma'am?

CALLER: She was in her pajamas. We were sleeping.

DISPATCH: OK. Alright, you said your back door was wide open?

CALLER: Yes, with a brick. Like, there was a brick on the floor. Like, when I went to sleep the door was not like that.

DISPATCH: Was your back door locked do you know?

CALLER: Yes. The back door always stays locked.

FATHER: I just got home from work, my 5-year-old daughter is gone. I need someone to be here now. I'm telling you. If I find whoever has my daughter before you all do, I'm killing him. I don't care. I'll spend the rest of my life in prison.

DISPATCH: It's OK sir, we got them on the way. Can you give me a description of the pajamas she was wearing?

FATHER: I don't (expletive) know I was at work.

"We have no suspect information. We're not focusing on any person as a person of interest right now. It is truly still a 'who done it,' meaning whether it's an abduction or a homicide or if she just wandered out," said Bowling.

Since the search for Haleigh began, there have been boats out on the nearby St. Johns River, a helicopter in the sky and search dogs on the ground all in hopes of finding a clue to the girl's whereabouts.

Still there has been no sign of the missing child.

Community Gathers, Prays For Missing Girl

As the search for Haleigh continued to get more desperate with each passing hour, friends and neighbors in the area came together for support. Twenty-four hours after Haleigh's was last seen, friends and neighbors gathered and prayed for the child's safe return.
 

Twenty-four hours after the girl was last seen, her family members, friends and neighbors gathered to hold a candlelight vigil to pray Haleigh's safe return.

"Father, we're asking that she's going to be released tonight, so we can go home and celebrate your goodness and bring her back," said one neighbor as he led the group in prayer.

"She's the most precious thing in our life. We want her to come home," said Haleigh's grandmother, Teresa Neves. "Please bring my baby home. She's an angel, she's never done anything bad. She is such a good girl and she does not deserve this. I know she has to be scared to death without her daddy … let her go. Bring her home."

"Please call and giver her to the police department so I can get my daughter back, please. All we want is my child, that's it. I just want my daughter back," said the child's father, Ronald Cummings. "Somebody has her. They have her hidden. I just want my daughter back, that's it. That's all I want."

Friends and neighbors have been offering their support, but all the family really wants is answered prayers.

Authorities ask anyone with any information to call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at 386-329-0800 or the FDLE's Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse at 888-FL-MISSING.

Search Suspended Until Morning For Missing Girl


SATSUMA, FL -- As the last few hours of searching wind down, a helicopter equipped with infrared does its last few sweeps looking for any signs of Haleigh Cummings

"This is my heart and somebody stole my heart from me," says Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings.

Detectives say they are covering all bases, from interviewing sex offenders and predators, to searching with blood hounds. Still, no leads have surfaced as to what actually happened with Haleigh.

"We don't where Haleigh's at. We have no suspect, information, we're not focusing on any person of interest now. It is truly a who-done-it. That means whether it's an abduction, or homicide, or if she wandered off ," says Major Gary Bowling with the Putnam Co. Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say the best thing on their side was time. Getting an early start allowed law enforcement to cover lots of ground with several resources, but as the hours pass, time is no longer a friend.

"We know that the first 24 hours are a critical time. We haven't lost any ground, but we haven't gained any ground either," says Major Bowling.

"Somebody came in the back door, broke in the back door and stole my child while I was at work," says Cummings.

The National Child Abduction Response Team has been activated to help with the investigation.

Volusia, St. Johns, Duval, and Flagler County are all assisting Putnam County in the investigation.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and the FBI are also helping. Putnam detectives say the FBI will help with questioning sex predators and offenders in the area.

Investigators say there are 44 sexual offenders that live within the five square mile search area.

Police: missing girl
abducted
Last Edited: Wednesday, 11 Feb 2009, 11:10 AM EST
SATSUMA, Fla. - Putnam County Sheriff's deputies are now calling the case of a missing 5-year-old girl an abduction.

Click here for a LIVE News Crew Web cam in Satsuma.
 

On Wednesday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the FBI and the Putnam County Sheriff's Office resumed the search for Haleigh Ann-Marie Cummings. Deputies say Haleigh was last seen Monday night at 10 p.m. in her mobile home on Green Lane.

According to investigators, Haleigh, her 2-year-old brother and her father's 17-year-old girlfriend, Mistie Croslin, went to bed in the same room. Deputies say Croslin told them that the little girl got up to go to the bathroom around 3:30 a.m.

It was around the same time Haleigh's father, Ronald, got home from work. When they went back into the bedroom they discovered Haleigh was gone. Investigators say the back door was wide open, but won't say if there was any forced entry.

Last night Haleigh's mother, Crystal Sheffield cried in front of the news cameras. "I just want to say bring her back home. Please," she said.

Haleigh's father Ronald Cummings says his daughter was afraid of the dark and wouldn't wander off by herself. "Somebody stole my child, trust me when I tell you that I know my child," he said.

Family members spent the night at a candlelight vigil. They say they will continue the vigil until Haleigh returns home.

Today, Haleigh's grandfather Johnny Sheffield told FOX 35 that he was distraught over the disappearance of his granddaughter. He says he does not know much about Ronald's girlfriend, Mistie Croslin, but thinks she is suspicious.

Investigators say Croslin is now with her family. They are not calling her a suspect at this time. Haleigh's grandmother Marie Griffis is also pleading to the public for help. She told FOX 35 that Trenton Duckett's father is assisting in the search, as well as other search teams.

However, Gary Bowling, a spokesperson for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, says right now, they are not asking for volunteers to help. Twenty five law enforcement agencies have assisted so far, including crews from Marion, Flagler and Volusia counties. Deputies say they have questioned 44 sex offenders who live within five miles of Haleigh's home. "This child didn't voluntarily walk out of her home. If she did someone took her," Bowling said.

Haleigh Ann-Marie Cummings is 5-years-old. She is 3 feet tall, weighs 39 lbs, has blonde hair and brown eyes. She was last seen on Green Lane in the Hermit's Cove area of Satsuma. She was wearing a pink shirt and underwear. Anyone with information should call the Putnam County Sheriffs Office at 386-329-0808.

Oh my goodness. another beautiful child gone...I just watched the video of her Dad and he is lying through his teeth. He made one comment that told it all..." I would give my life to have my child's life back". He had no tears, just the sobbing effect...then started talking normal.Poor sweet babies....I wish I could take all the unwanted babies and keep them safe. I just hope they find her little body soon. God have Mercy on these sweet little ones.

Amber Alert -- Texas EquuSearch Joins Search For Haleigh

Wednesday, February 11, 2009 1:33:25 PM
SATSUMA, Fla. --  Texas EquuSearch director Tim Miller said his group will join in the search for Haleigh Cummings.  Josh Duckett and the Kid Finders Network are also searching for the 5-year-old Putnam County girl who vanished from her home Tuesday morning.

Texas EquuSearch opened an Orlando branch during the search for Caylee Anthony.

Twenty-four hours after Haleigh was last seen, family and friends gathered for a candlelight vigil hoping for her safe return.
     
The Amber Alert for Haleigh Cummings was issued Tuesday. The Satsuma girl was last seen Monday when she went to bed around 10 p.m.
   
Haleigh's father said the child was missing when he returned home from work around 3 a.m. Tuesday. Ronald Cummings said his girlfriend was awake and frantic that Haleigh was missing from her bed.

 “Please bring my baby home. She's an angel.  She's never done anything bad. She is such a good girl and she does not deserve this. I know she has to be scared to death without her daddy.  Let her go. Bring her home," said Haleigh's grandmother, Teresa Neves.

Investigators with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said it's not clear if Haleigh was abducted. The trailer where she lives had no signs of forced entry, but a back door was ajar.

Haleigh is around 3 feet tall, has blond hair, brown eyes, and weighs about 39 lbs. She was wearing a pink shirt and her underwear when she was last seen.

Local and state authorities and the FBI searched Tuesday for Haleigh in neighbors' homes and vehicles leaving her neighborhood on the St. Johns River.

If you have seen Haleigh Cummings, call the Putnam County Sheriff's Office at (386) 329-0808.

Police, divers search neighborhood for Fla. girl

Wednesday February 11, 2009
SATSUMA, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies searched house-to-house Wednesday and dive teams probed the St. Johns River for a 5-year-old north Florida girl who went missing from her bed.

A Florida Amber Alert was issued for Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma, about 70 miles north of Orlando. The girl was last seen Monday night when she went to bed.

Investigators with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said it was not clear if Haleigh was abducted or wandered out into the rural neighborhood that borders the river. They said the mobile home where she lives had no signs of forced entry, but a back door was open.

Haleigh's father told investigators the blonde girl was missing when he returned home from work around 3 a.m. Tuesday. Ronald Cummings said his girlfriend was awake and frantic that Haleigh was missing from her bed.

Officers from local, state and federal agencies and K-9 teams scoured the neighborhood around the doublewide mobile home where the child disappeared from a bedroom she shared with her 4-year-old brother and her father's girlfriend.

"We go door to door. We meet with the homeowners and ask if they mind if we go look around," said Lt. Johnny Greenwood, a spokesman for the sheriff's office. "You ask if you can look in the back of the house, at the sheds and anything that's around there."

Several hundred homes were expected to be surveyed. Check points were set up at the entrance to the neighborhood to search departing vehicles. Two dive teams explored the St. Johns River. Neighbors and family members also were being interviewed by detectives.

The girl's disappearance has not been classified as an abduction.

"We're currently working both angles — did she wander off, we're working it that way with the searches," Greenwood said. "And investigators are doing interviews in case it is an abduction."
