Vigil set for Haleigh Aug 10th - Balloon release Aug. 17. for Haleigh's 7th Birthday
How time has gone by, here we are at almost two yrs and still no sign of Haleigh or what happen to her. I pray that she is found sooner than later and the POI's are put to away for life and/or given the needle.
Below are the time and dates for the upcoming vigil and balloon release.
Vigil set for Haleigh Aug 10th by paternal side of her family
Balloon release Aug. 17. for Haleigh's 7th Birthday
Palatka Daily News
Published: Thursday, August 5, 2010 12:55 AM EDT
A vigil to commemorate the 18 months Haleigh Cummings has been missing will be held next week in Welaka.
The paternal side of the family has organized the memorial, which will take place at the First Baptist Church on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
A balloon release will also take place on Haleigh's seventh birthday Aug. 17.
Balloons provided by the family will be released at the Riverfront Park next to the clock tower in Palatka at 2:17 p.m.
Haleigh was born at 2:17 a.m., Sykes said.
"I just ask that people keep praying and helping us look for her, because we believe she is still alive," Sykes said. "We would be glad for anybody that would like to participate, and we thank everybody for all the prayers and anything that they've done to help us."
Haleigh was reported missing at 3:27 a.m. on Feb. 10, 2009.
No trace of Haleigh has been found despite massive searches by law enforcement and volunteers on land and water.
Sheriff Hardy officially labeled it a homicide.
Authorities named Misty Croslin the key to the investigation after her statements to investigators reportedly had numerous inconsistencies about what took place between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. the night Haleigh Cummings disappeared.

Oh, thanks Madj!
I really would like to know when and where GGS and family have been continuing to look for HaLeigh! JMO
I remember last year, there were a several WSer's that released balloons as well at the same time on the same day, but in their hometown. I was wondering if anyone was thinking of doing so again.
I think i will release 7 purple balloons on 8/17 in honor of HaLeigh.

Yes, most of us have been here since the first day - the day of Caylee's memorial service. I will never forget it. And still no Haleigh and still no justice for her. I never dreamed it would take so long, and now we may never know what happened to her.
The 7 purple balloons are a good idea, lil momma. I think that is what I will do as well. 7 purple balloons toward heaven for Haleigh from Louisiana.

I’m not sure that this is where I should post this, so, if not, mods please move it.
I’m new to WS and not one of the many wonderful, dedicated sleuthers that have been following HaLeigh’s case here since the beginning, but I have been following it locally from the area since day one and say a prayer for little HaLeigh every night. I also say a prayer for Jr. as well because I believe he is going to have some tough struggles in his life.
Over the past 18 months, IMVHO, we should have seen the family of this darling little girl constantly in the news asking, begging, for her safe return, but instead, we’ve seen the majority of them plastered (no pun intended) in the news regarding their arrests and unsavory lifestyle…arrest charges resulting from thefts to drug abuse, possession, and trafficking. And now one, or all, may be facing murder, or at the very least, manslaughter charges. What a waste of God’s gift of life.
I, too, will be releasing 7 purple balloons on Aug. 17 for HaLeigh’s birthday and also 1 purple balloon on the 10th of every month until she is found or I am no longer on this earth to do so. God bless HaLeigh.God Bless HaLeigh...
God Bless Our Troops...
God Bless America...
Rest In Peace Sweet Caylee...

Thanks for the info about the balloon launch in honor of HaLeigh's seventh birthday. I've already marked my calendar, and purple balloons with purple and pink ribbons will be released in north-suburban Detroit at 2:17 pm on 8/17. This beautiful child should be enjoying the summer before starting second grade. Thoughts and prayers for HaLeigh.

I like the balloon idea. However, I would rather give purple balloons to some children I know, or maybe just at random. Make another child's day happy as well as remembering Haleigh. And I agree something is up with the family, IMO, not really searching for answers. We ,for the most part, don't even know her, and everyone is looking for info to find this beautiful child and if the worst case senario is true, give her a proper burial.

Wow. She's gonna be seven. I can't believe it
Maybe she'll receive some justice for her birthday this year.

There is an email address set up for people who release balloons to send in pictures of their releases - just like last year. The pictures will then be posted online, like last year.
The email address to send in your pictures is:
I released red and purple balloons last year (with HaLeigh's fliers in them). This year I will release red and purple balloons again to honor HaLeigh's birthday.

I plan to light a candle at 3:45 pm on the 9th for Haleigh and wiil release a purple balloon on the 9th also...
I've chosen the 9th because IMHO, the Cummings know she passed on the 9th and was not abducted on the 10th...JMO

This has been the paternal side of her family, NOT the maternal side. Her mother's family has been working to find her, but without all the added drama. IMVHO, Nancy Grace attacked the "bio-mom" (I hate that term) so viciously, and so she's not been in the national news that often. She has retreated to raise Jr. in the country where hopefully he isn't exposed to all the DRAMA associated with the Cummings clan. JMO

How nice that they do something for 1 day to get in the limelight. How about all the other days when they have been doing nothing? These people make me ill. Do they honestly think they are doing something by releasing balloons? pppffffttttttt.If there's hink....there must be stink.
