    Cousin Arrested in Tennessee

    I posted this in the cousin thread but didn't want it to get lost in such a long thread.

    http://chattahbox.com/us/2009/02/23/...-acquaintance/


    Florida (ChattahBox) – The family of missing five-year-old Haleigh Cummings have said that they are terrified that she may have been taken by the cousin of her father’s girlfriend, a convicted pedophile.

    The man, whose name has not been released, is currently being questioned about the incident. Family says that he was visiting at the time of the disappearance.

    “What we’ve been told is that he’s a sexual pedophile,” Teresa Neves, who is the missing girl’s grandmother, said. “I couldn’t tell you anything about him.”

    The man was arrested by police and held for questioning, after an anonymous tip came in from a line in Tennessee, where the cousin is from. It said that a man was in a diner, with a child who looked like Haleigh, and that as they left he was trying to ’shield her from view’.

    Police admit that a sexual predator is in custody, and that a car was apprehended in the arrest, but they have given no further details.

    The family have publicly pleaded for the safe return of the young girl.

    “I want to say to my baby, we love you sweetheart, and we will find you,” Neves said at an emotional press conference.

    Haleigh had been asleep in her room when she vanished without a trace.

    Your link didn't work for me. Here is another one to the same story:

    Police admit that a sexual predator is in custody, and that a car was apprehended in the arrest, but they have given no further details.

    http://chattahbox.com/us/2009/02/23/...nce/#more-5066Thanks for posting this since I missed it! It explains the car!

    This could be huge, but we don't know why he was arrested. I wonder if this is Joe?

    Arrested and held for questioning..
    (I think they said this guy was not a POI)
    A car was seized, however LE would not comment on it.
    A SO was arrested for curfew violations, so that part is true too, but not linked to Haleigh..
    I think this is just bad reporting myself.

    Nevermind I was able to open a link to the article.

    Is this a different cousin than Joe O.?

    Also I'm confused about the reference to a diner, sounds very much like the carraba's reported sighting.

    I think I need more coffee

    ETA: thank you for looking up the date for me
