Voice of Haleigh search changes
Published: Saturday, March 21, 2009 1:57 AM EDT
Dwindling media attention in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings has triggered a change in the role of spokesman for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.
Dick Schauland, a veteran lawman who came out of retirement to assist Putnam authorities in media matters shortly after Haleigh's disappearance drew national attention, said Friday he was returning to his life as a retiree.

Media inquiries have de-creased markedly compared to the frantic days after Haleigh was re-ported missing Feb. 10, Schauland said.
"I'm here all day at the sheriff's office, and I'm taking only six calls and doing one on-camera interview, and that's it," he said.

Schauland stressed his departure was not because he felt the investigation was going nowhere.
"I'm really not giving up yet," he said. "I'm just down here all day and not doing anything."

Lt. Johnny Greenwood will assume Schauland's duties as the department's public information officer.
Greenwood worked at the Putnam County Sheriff's Office for the 12 years, then spent a year working at the State Attorney's Office as an investigator. He was recruited back to the agency by newly elected Sheriff Jeff Hardy.

"They brought in Schauland to help with the case when it got a bit crazy, but now that it's slowed back down they are letting him go back to enjoying being retired," Greenwood said.
"If something big happens he will come back to help."
