    Cops checking alibi of Haleigh's father's girlfriend; reward at $16K
    Where is Haleigh?

    The Putnam County Sheriff's Office confirmed Wednesday that it received a tip claiming Misty Croslin didn't tell law enforcement the truth about her whereabouts the night Haleigh disappeared. Croslin, the 17-year-old girlfriend of Haleigh's father, told officials she was sleeping with Haleigh and her 4-year-old brother while their father, Ronald Cummings, was at work.

    But the tipster said Croslin left the double-wide trailer late Feb. 9 or early Feb. 10. Haleigh was reported missing Feb. 10. "We have received that tip. They are following up on it," Capt. Dick Schauland of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said during a news conference.

    Search For Haleigh : Grandmother Discouraged

    SATSUMA, FL -- As day nine of the search for Haleigh Cummings comes to a close, candles still burn, tips continue to come in, and family members say they are left with even more questions.
    "Nobody can make up their mind on what she was wearing, who was at home with her, where anybody was that night. It's unbelievable!" says Marie Griffis, Haleigh's maternal grandmother. Griffis says it's hard to know what to believe. She just wants the truth. "There are just so many lies going around," says Griffis.

    Investigators aren't saying much when answering questions about possible leads, including talk about examining a particular vehicle as evidence. "It was processed for evidence, but we're not going to get into that, but it was processed by FDLE," says Detective Dominick Pape with FDLE.

    Reward increased to $16,000 and parents summoned to sheriffs office Wed. afternoon

    Putnam County investigators separately interviewed 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings' father and mother Wednesday afternoon, but officials downplayed that as routine and said there's no break in the hunt for the girl now missing for nine days.


    Haleighs great-grandmother defends Croslin

    A day after detectives said they were following up on a tip that Croslin may not have been at home when Haleigh disappeared, the 5-year-old's great-grandmother, Annett Sykes, said she doesn't believe the tip at all.


    "That's a crock. I went by the house that night. She fed them. She bathed them. Every morning when Haleigh went out to go to school, she looked like she just stepped out of a beauty shop," Sykes said. "Y'all don't know her. Those children love her, and she loves them. I know everybody makes a big deal that she's only 17, and that's true, but she's a lot more mature than a lot of people that I've seen and that I know who are 25 and 30."

    She said she last saw Haleigh outside on the porch eating dinner at 7 p.m. on Monday.

    PALATKA, Fla. -- Putnam County investigators separately interviewed 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings' father and mother Wednesday afternoon, but officials downplayed that as routine and said there's no break in the hunt for the girl now missing for nine days.
    Ronald Cummings and Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh's parents, were each brought to the sheriff's office.

    Sykes said there is no way Croslin wasn’t home the night Haleigh went missing.

    UPDATED: Car Taken Into Custody In Haleigh Case
    Thursday, February 19, 2009 – updated: 9:06 am EST February 19, 2009

    <snipped>
    The Putnam County Sheriff's Office will follow up on more tips Thursday. Each day more tips and leads come into the sheriff's office.
    "There was a tip earlier on which we had processed for evidence. But we do not want to get into any of the details on that, but it was processed by FDLE," said Dominick Pape of the FDLE. "At this point in time, we don't want to give out any more information reference that vehicle."
    Detectives were tight-lipped when it came to giving detailed information on clues and tips that they're getting. They said releasing specifics could jeopardize the investigation.

    The sheriff's office continues to talk with Haleigh's father and mother. Eyewitness News was there when Ronald Cummings got into the front seat of a detectives car Wednesday.
    "Are we frustrated? Absolutely. We wish we had this resolved on day one within three hours," said Cummings.

    UPDATED: Amber Alert: Deputies Questioning Father's Girlfriend Again
    Thursday, February 19, 2009 4:16:57 PM

    <snipped>
    SATSUMA -- At an afternoon press conference Thursday, the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said Misty Croslin, the girlfriend of Haleigh Cummings' father, is also being questioned again.
    They also said Timothy Randall Loucakis, a sexual predator who lives about a mile away from the girl, has been arrested for a curfew violation. However, they said there is nothing linking him to Haleigh's disappearance.
    The sheriff's office said he was one of the first people who were interviewed when Haleigh disappeared. His home has also been search.


    Investigators say they've received over 1,200 tips in this case, including one saying Croslin was not home at the time of Haleigh's disappearance.
    At a Wednesday afternoon press conference, investigators said, based on tips, they put a boat on the St. Johns River and have processed a vehicle, but they would not give details.
    Investigators would not release information about what the polygraph tests showed, or comment on whether they still believe Croslin is telling the truth.

    Lawmen seeking answers; Investigators again question Haleigh's father and his girlfriend

    Putnam County sheriff's detectives on Wednesday again questioned the girl's father, Ronald Cummings, and his girlfriend, Misty Croslin. The questioning was conducted at the sheriff's office headquarters in Palatka.

    Though the number of tips continues to swell, Schauland said information from the public likely would play a critical role in solving the case.

    "Of course we're following up every one of them," he said during the press conference. "Sooner or later the one we need is going to come up and it's going to make the difference."

    Schauland added, "There's no persons of interest or suspects."

    In a news conference Wednesday, Putnam County Sheriff's Office Capt. Dick Schauland said investigators are now working through about 1,200 tips, including again questioning the child's father, Ronald Cummings, and his girlfriend Misty Croslin.

    Putnam County Sheriff's investigators said they have received a tip that the 17-year-old girlfriend in the case of a missing Satsuma girl was not actually home at the time of the girl's disappearance, which is contrary to what she told detectives. Croslin has responded to the allegations by the tipsters and said they are lying. Croslin is adamant that she was there at the home with Haleigh and says no one can say she wasn't there.

    JACKSONVILLE, FL -- With the Haleigh Cummings Amber Alert status creating a nationwide lookout, there are reports of a search this past weekend in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Tennessee Highway Patrol confirms that a man with a little girl who looked like Haleigh Cummings was spotted outside a Carrabba's restaurant in East Knoxville on Sunday afternoon. The Highway Patrol quickly canvassed the area in a search that resulted in no findings.
    More witnesses came forward saying the man, who was white, walked while shielding the face of a girl who looked like Haleigh. The two got into a red Toyota RAV4 with Florida license plates and drove off. The Tennessee Highway Patrol has no further comment and can't confirm that the girl was actually Haleigh Cummings.

    Haleigh's Family Living In Tents During Search
    Thursday, February 19, 2009 – updated: 12:53 pm EST February 19, 2009

    <snipped>
    PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- Eyewitness News spoke with Haleigh's family Thursday about how they are coping. They are living in a tent, about 15-by15. Coolers are full of water and drinks and inside is where the family is living, because their mobile home down the street is still a crime scene.
    New information was released Thursday about the pink shirt Haleigh was last reported wearing. Ronald Cummings' grandmother, Annette Sykes, told Eyewitness News earlier this week deputies allowed Misty Croslin back inside the mobile home where Haleigh was abducted.
    Sykes said the 17-year-old girlfriend found the pink shirt in the home, but the sheriff's office won't confirm where it was found. Meanwhile, the family is still camped out in the neighborhood.
    "It's not home, but it's good. I mean it's dry, basically, it's out of the sun," Sykes said. But on a rainy Thursday in Putnam County, water poured through the cracks of a tent donated by a funeral home. The fire department donated a propane tank to keep them warm on cool nights and the family is taking shifts sleeping on mattresses.

    Haleigh's Family Pleads For Her Safe Return
    Anonymous Donor Contributes $10K To Reward For Missing Girl
    POSTED: 4:36 pm EST February 18, 2009
    UPDATED: 2:05 pm EST February 19, 2009

    <snipped>
    SATSUMA, Fla. -- The father of missing Putnam County girl Haleigh Cummings had little comment to the media during a news conference Thursday regarding the questioning of his girlfriend, Misty Croslin.
    Croslin, 17, was put in a deputy's car to be taken in for questioning earlier Thursday.
    When probed by reporters about how he felt about his girlfriend's story and if he had suspicions that she hurt his 5-year-old, father Ronald Cummings repeatedly said he was not a detective. He said those type of questions should be directed to detectives.


    "I just want the truth. I just want my daughter home. I don't have any suspicions of anybody. Anybody could've done something. I believe Misty is telling the truth," Ronald Cummings said.
    Just as the public heard from George and Cindy Anthony, the grandparents of once missing and now deceased toddler Caylee Anthony, Cummings pleaded with reporters and the community to focus solely on his daughter and bringing her home safely. "We need to focus on my daughter going missing, not what's going on in my life besides my daughter going missing," Cummings said

    Haleigh Cummings' father pleads for daughter's return
    Where is Haleigh?

    Today's Updates
    1:19 p.m. Haleigh Cummings' father made another public plea during a news briefing today in hopes of finding the missing 5-year-old. When asked by reporters whether he had a message for the person who has his daughter, Ronald Cummings said: "I would ask that you please, please bring my daughter back. She's not yours."

    Croslin, the 17-year-old girlfriend of Haleigh's father, told officials she was sleeping with Haleigh and her 4-year-old brother while their father, Ronald Cummings, was at work.
    But the tipster said Croslin left the double-wide trailer late Feb. 9 or early Feb. 10. Haleigh was reported missing Feb. 10.
    "We have received that tip. They are following up on it," Putnam sheriff's Capt. Dick Schauland said during a news conference.
