    Cummings Getting Married
    Last Update: 3/11 11:42 pm
    <snipped>
    It's been 30 days since Haleigh Cummings disappeared from her Putnam County home. And while the nationwide search for her continues, her father is getting ready to celebrate.

    Ronald Cummings plans to marry his 17-year-old girlfriend, Misty Croslin. The family tells us the wedding will be small and private, and that there will be no reception and no honeymoon.

    Haleigh's grandmother, Teresa Neves, says this is what Haleigh and her little brother always wanted. "Haleigh and Junior have often talked about how they would love to have Misty as mommy. And they've asked Daddy several times why he don't marry Misty," says Neves.

    But not everyone is celebrating Ronald and Misty's nuptials. Friends of Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh's mother, call the timing of the ceremony completely inappropriate. Family friend, Christine Watkins says, "It's disgusting. While they could be out looking for Haleigh, they're making wedding plans? How happy they are...imagine that."

    The wedding is set to happen sometime Thursday afternoon, at the Dunns Creek Baptist Church in San Mateo. You can count on us to be there.

    Croslin picked out two dresses for the big day
    Last Update: 3/11 7:09 pm
    <snipped>
    Neves said Croslin picked out two dresses for the big day.
    “I believe that the one she’s going to wear is going to be white…strapless, with ties in the back.”

    Neves said the ceremony will only include about 20-30 people. She also said there will be no party and no honeymoon afterward. She hopes to have a bigger ceremony once Haleigh is returned home.

    “It’s just basically something for Haleigh…and I don’t know if they've done a best man, or a bridesmaid, I don’t think they thought anything about that…I think it’s going to be the bride, the I-Do’s…and just wait for Haleigh.”

    Cameras will not be allowed inside the church where Misty and Ronald will wed. Ronald’s mother did tell us we would be welcome to wait outside for them to come out.

    New leads produce no sign of Haleigh

    By Kristen Chambers
    Published: Thursday, March 12, 2009 1:22 AM EDT
    New leads continue to climb as the quest to find Haleigh Cummings persists.

    "As of Tuesday, we are up to 3,500 tips," Capt. Dick Schauland of the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said.

    This totals an increase of 1,100 leads since last Friday.

    Schauland said they are still following up on leads and conducting interviews, but nothing new has been found regarding Haleigh's whereabouts.

    *
    A donation of $767 has been put up for Haleigh's return, increasing the reward to $35,767. Of the total amount, $5,000 will be awarded for the return of the child and $30,767 will be awarded for the arrest and the conviction of the person or persons involved in the crime.

    SAN MATEO, Fla. -- The San Mateo church, reportedly the site for the wedding, says none are scheduled for Thursday.
    A family friend says that Ronald Cummings and Misty Croslin are now looking for a location, and someone to wed them.

    Dunns Creek Baptist Church emailed a statement to our newsroom stating that there is no wedding scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 12, 2009. The statement provided by Associate Pastor David Dixon asked that any announcements made regarding the Cummings-Croslin wedding at the church be retracted.
    Jamie Watts, funeral director of Watts Funeral Home, 720 U.S. Hwy. 17 in San Mateo, says the couple originally asked him to perform the service; however, Watts says his notary status has expired.


    Statement from Dunns Creek Baptist Church:
    To Whom It May Concern:
    There is no wedding scheduled to take place at Dunns Creek Baptist Church on Thursday, March 12, 2009. Pastor Terry Wright is out of town and the other full time pastors (David Dixon & Chad Perry) are not performing a wedding today. Please retract any announcements you have made regarding the Cummings / Croslin wedding taking place at Dunns Creek Baptist Church.
    Thank you,
    David Dixon
    Assoc. Pastor
    Dunns Creek Baptist Church

    100 Deputies, Officers Search New Area For Haleigh
    Missing Girl's Father Plans To Get Married Thursday Afternoon
    POSTED: Thursday, March 12, 2009
    UPDATED: 5:04 pm EDT March 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    The largest organized search in weeks for 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings was taking place Thursday morning in southern Putnam County.
    About 100 police cadets, deputies from Putnam, Clay, St. Johns and Marion counties and people from other agencies were searching a wooded area along U.S. Highway 17 and neighboring railroad tracks. The search area stretched almost 13 miles from Satsuma -- where Haleigh disappeared from her father's home before dawn on Feb. 10 -- south to Crescent City.
    It has been 31 days since 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings disappeared from her home in Satsuma.
    "The search is not a result of information received, but is being conducted to be sure that all areas are covered," Putnam County Sheriff's Office Capt. Dick Schauland said.

    Ronald Cummings and his teenage girlfriend, Misty Croslin, told Channel 4 they plan to go ahead with plans to get married on Thursday.
    She told Channel 4 that although some people may take the news of her and Cummings' engagement the wrong way, "everything is still about Haleigh."
    "This is what Haleigh wanted. She has always talked about it, and even if she's not with us, she is still with us," Croslin said.
    Haleigh's grandmother, Teresa Neves, took pictures on the evening of the marriage proposal. She said the couple plans to tie the knot because it's what Haleigh would want.

    UPDATED: New Area Searched as Haleigh's Father Weds Teen Girlfriend

    Ronald Cummings, 25, exchanged vows with 17-year-old Misty Croslin Thursday evening. Soon after, the newlyweds rushed to the airport for a flight to New York City where they'll appear on The Today Show on NBC Friday morning.
    The small ceremony took place in the back yard of the home where Haleigh's great-grandmother lives in Welaka, which is about six miles south of where 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings disappeared last month.
    Annette Sykes told First Coast News the couple got married because they are happy and love each other.
    Sykes said they would be even happier if Haleigh came home.

    The buzz of the wedding is not the only activity surrounding the search for Haleigh Cummings.
    Law enforcement officers combed a new area for any sign of the little girl, last seen on the night of February 9 after Misty Croslin put her to bed.
    In Satsuma Thursday morning, about 100 officers from several law enforcement agencies fanned out in the woods located a couple miles from Haleigh's home.
    Capt. Dick Schauland with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office says the search is in a new area but it's not the result of new information.

    <<The family told WESH 2 News that Ronald Cummings, 25, is scheduled to marry 17-year-old Misty Croslin at 4 p.m. The family earlier said the ceremony will be at the Dunn's Creek Baptist Church in the town of San Mateo, which is just north of Satsuma, but the church said that wasn't the case. Now the family says it will be at a "secret location.">>

    Haleigh's Father's Wedding Put On Hold
    Posted: 12:06 pm EDT March 12, 2009
    Updated: 5:52 pm EDT March 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- Ronald Cummings and Misty Croslin were expected to get married Thursday, but the wedding was put on hold. Thursday was supposed to be a wedding day, but it was up in the air.
    What did go on as planned was a new search one that Haleigh's father was not involved in. Haleigh Cummings has been missing for one month. She was taken from her home in Satsuma in Putnam County. Officers from a half-dozen agencies set out on foot Thursday to search a new area south of Haleigh's home in Satsuma, through thick brush and sometimes dangerous terrain. One deputy nearly had a run in with a rattlesnake.
    "We're just out there looking for anything that would possibly give us a clue," said Lieutenant Dale Bryant of the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office.


    But the wedding may or may not be happening. First the church backed out, then Ronald Cummings' friend who was to perform the ceremony ran into a major snag.
    Thursday, Haleigh's grandmother. Theresa Neves, responded to questions of timing and the notion that the wedding is really a deterrent for investigators, so Ronald and Misty would not have to testify against each other.
    "That's absurd there's nothing to testify about it is what it is, somebody came in and took Haleigh. That has nothing to do with Misty or my son," said Neves.
    "The person who was going to perform the wedding is a notary. And we did not know the notary had expired," said Lindsey Croslin, sister-in-law.

    Investigators wrapped up their search with no significant development and there is no word whether the wedding cake will be needed after all.
    The family was being very quiet about the wedding plans. They've made it clear it is not to be a public event. They said it would happen at 4:00pm Thursday, but no one seems to know where Ron and Misty are.

    Misty and Ronald are newlyweds now
    Story updated at 6:17 PM on Thursday, Mar. 12, 2009
    <snipped>
    Hours after their Welaka wedding and a late evening flight to New York, newlyweds Ronald and Misty Cummings are scheduled to appear Friday morning on the NBC “Today” show to recount again the late-night disappearance of his 5-year-old daughter and its aftermath, a family member said.
    On Thursday, as 97 law enforcement officers searched a 10-mile stretch of U.S. 17 in southern Putnam County for any small clues that might help them find the still missing Haleigh Cummings, the couple prepared for a wedding their families said the little girl wanted.
    The newlyweds were leaving for a flight from Orlando right after the afternoon wedding, said Lindsy Croslin, whose sister-in-law was marrying Ronald Cummings. The couple will be on “Today” at 7:30 a.m. for an interview with Meredith Vieira, the network said.
    Earlier plans for the 17-year-old Misty Croslin to marry the 25-year-old Cummings at Dunns Creek Baptist Church Thursday didn’t materialize. The ceremony was switched to a family home in Welaka, a town to the south of the Satsuma community where Cummings lives. The couple got engaged Sunday.

    Meanwhile Thursday ground searchers scoured a 30-yard-wide swath on either side of U.S. 17 between County Road 309 in Satsuma to Union Avenue in Crescent City for the first time, said Capt. Dick Schauland of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. Schauland said the search was not due to any specific tip.

    The sheriff's office said today's search "is not the result of information received, but is being conducted as one more step in the continuing search for Haleigh."
