    Haleigh Cummings: The Latest
    Last Update: 3/18 11:54 pm
    <snipped>
    Here are the latest developments in the Haleigh Cummings case.

    First, the missing 5-year-old's father Ronald, his new wife Misty, and their family are now holding their nightly vigils at a relative's house in nearby Welaka. Last week, the family was forced out of their roadside campsite near their home. Putnam County said the camp was against code.

    Meanwhile, Ronald's mother, Teresa Neves, is talking about allegations of child abuse and drug abuse surrounding her son. She calls the claims, which are coming from Haleigh's mother's camp, both unfounded and unfair. "I just think it's a mudslinging match that we want no part of. We want all the focus to be on Haleigh," says Neves.

    Finally, a van confiscated by police as evidence has been returned to Chelsea Croslin, Misty's sister-in-law. Croslin says a broken headlight and an unexplained scratch on the side leads her to believe someone else was driving the van the night Haleigh disappeared. She says it was possibly an out-of-town relative that had been staying with them. "I'm not accusing anybody. It's just me being a mom and believing what I believe. And having pieced everything together, I almost think I know who it is," says Croslin.

    Putnam County police still have not named a suspect in this case, nor have they ruled anyone out. Five detectives are now working thousands of leads.

    Deputies called to Haleigh family location
    Published: Thursday, March 19, 2009 1:00 AM EDT
    <snipped>
    Sheriff's deputies responded to a disturbance Wednesday after an unidentified man harassed Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh Cumming's mother, at the family's headquarters in Satsuma.
    Jeremiah Regan, a friend of the maternal side of the family, said a blanket trespass warning has been ordered to prevent unwanted persons from returning to the building.

    "Anyone that comes here to harass us, that we don't want here, will be asked to leave, and if they violate that they will be arrested," Regan said.
    Haleigh, a blond, brown-eyed kindergartner, vanished from her Satsuma home Feb. 10. Friends and relatives of her mother and father, who never married, have since gathered at separate sites in the area.

    Meanwhile, Regan said anyone involved in sexual crimes against children was not welcome on the headquarters property next to U.S. 17.
    Regan said people who would like to support the maternal side of the family or have tips regarding Haleigh, however, are encouraged to stop by 24 hours a day starting Monday. That's when the grand opening will be held of what has been termed the "Haleighbug Headquarters" - using a nickname for the missing girl.

    Haleigh's father hires attorney in wake of abuse allegations
    Helen Eckinger | Sentinel Staff Writer
    3:01 PM EDT, March 19, 2009
    <snipped.
    The Palatka-based law firm Kimball and Snider, P.A. released a statement this afternoon saying it will be representing Ronald Cummings, 25, on a pro bono basis. The firm will coordinate Cummings' public appearances and will also represent Cummings in a possible custody battle over Haleigh's younger brother, Ronald Cummings Jr., 4, between Cummings and the children's mother, Crystal Sheffield, 23.

    "The mother was previously denied custody in court and allegations of abuse against Ronald were judicially dismissed," the firm said in the statement, adding that Cummings considered the abuse allegations a "cheap shot and publicity stunt that detracts from the search for Haleigh."

    The firm will not be representing Cummings' 17-year-old wife, Misty Croslin. Croslin was the last person to see Haleigh, who disappeared from the home Croslin shared with Cummings and his children late Feb. 9 or early Feb. 10. She and Cummings married on March 12.

    "Ronald Cummings stands behind his wife, Misty, and supports her 100%. The law office of Kimball & Snider, P.A. has decided it is best to only represent Ronald and not Misty, because of their different respective legal positions," the statement said.

    Haleigh's Father Under Investigation For Child Abuse
    Thursday, March 19, 2009 1:48:49 PM
    <snipped>
    The search continues in Putnam County for 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings. But now another investigation is starting over whether the child's younger brother has been abused by their father.

    The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Children and Families are investigating claims by the children’s mother that Ronald Cummings has beaten his son and also neglected the children repeatedly.

    It's all part of an escalating custody battle between the parents.

    Ronald Cummings' mother says there's no truth to the charges and the case takes away from the search for her missing granddaughter.

    According to Misty's mother, Lisa Croslin, her daughter-in-law noticed a scratch along the side of the van the night of day after Haleigh disappeared.

    Investigators seized the vehicle.
    Captain Dick Schauland with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office said the technicians at the FDLE lab did not find any information on the van that is linked to the Haliegh Cummings' case.

    Ronald Cummings Gets Legal Representation, Teen Wife Excluded
    Created: 3/19/2009 2:32:27 PM
    Updated: 3/19/2009 10:51:03 PM

    The Law Office of Kimball & Snider in Palatka says it will represent Ronald Cummings on a pro bono basis.
    The personal injury firm says it will help handle the media and Ronald Cummings' interests in matters involving a possible custody fight over his son.

    "The attorney and mother have appeared on national television to make unsubstantiated claims that Ronald Cummings sees as a 'cheap shot' and publicity stunt that detracts from the search for Haleigh," wrote Kimball & Snider in a statement released to the media.
    "The mother was previously denied custody in court and allegations of abuse against Ronald were judicially dismissed."


    The firm says Cummings a victim, who "needs and deserves legal advice and assistance in his quest for the safe return of his daughter."

    The firm won't represent Misty Croslin Cummings, Ronald's 17-year-old wife. She is the one who told investigators she put Haleigh to bed on the night of February 9. The 5-year-old girl hasn't been seen since.
    Though Ronald Cummings stands by her, the firm "has decided it is best to only represent ronald and not Misty, because of their different respective legal positions."

    No one from the firm is available today to explain what "different respective legal positions" means.
    In the statement the firm says it is conducting its own investigation into all "relevant matters" and will speak to the media when it's appropriate.

    UPDATED: Man questioned in Haleigh Cummings investigation
    Ex-Wife of man interviewed tells us details of why
    Last Edited: Thursday, 19 Mar 2009, 6:05 PM EDT

    There are more than 40 registered sexual offenders living in the area near Haleigh Cummings home. Officers say they’ve interviewed every single one. We have now learned a man awaiting trial for the Sexual Battery of a 9-year-old has also been questioned by police.
    The man’s ex-wife spoke only to us, saying she had no idea the man she married may be capable of such a crime.

    “It made me a child molester too,” said Joanne Newberger.
    “I felt like it made me sick…today I can’t be around children.”
    Newberger says she married the man in the early 90’s and claims everything started off fine. “I thought he was like wow---he’s looking at me! This good looking guy is looking at me, and I was overwhelmed with him.”
    After awhile Newberger says violent tendencies started showing up in the man she loved. “He was getting worse, and then he started with people in the area and started with the beatings really bad.”

    Newberger and the man divorced in 1999. The man was arrested in December of 2007 and charged with Sexually Battery of a minor. He also faces Lewd & Lascivious charges. He is currently out of jail on a $75,000 bond and is forced to wear an ankle monitor, has a curfew, and can not have any contact with anyone under 18.

    The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office tells us they have questioned the man and reviewed records telling them where his ankle monitor was the night Haleigh disappeared. They say so far there is no evidence linking him to Haleigh’s abduction.

    CayleeDoll.com Slams Media Focus in Haleigh Cumming Case
    March 17, 2009
    <snipped>
    We would like to make a plea to you and all Americans. Please do not support the media as they try to destroy the parents and family of Haleigh Cummings. The focus should be on the safe return of Haleigh and not on any other issues.

    The media knows that many Americans want to hear that the parents were involved in Haleigh's disappearance in some way. They know how to ensnare us with "Negative or Scandalous News" or "Bombshells". They will try to make it look like the people closest to Haleigh were involved in her disappearance in order to increase viewership and create a better spin on the story.

    Again, this is not where our energy should be focused. Lets stand together and not allow outlets like Gerardo Rivera, Nancy Grace, HLN or any other agencies to divert our attention.

    Haleigh Cumming deserves to have 100% of our concentration on her, as we try to bring her home safely.

    Search For Haleigh Hits "A Brick Wall"
    Investigation Into Disappearance Of 5-Year-Old Florida Girl Desperately Needs A Great Tip
    <snipped>
    John Walsh, host of "America's Most Wanted," who has been involved with the investigation, sat down with Early Show co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez to share the latest on the search for the missing 5-year-old.

    "That investigation is very troubling to me. I mean, it's in my home state of Florida, and everybody's working on this case. There are the FBI, the sheriff down there is doing a great job. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has a team, Adam, named after our son, working on this case," Walsh said.

    According to Walsh, they are still looking at everybody related to the family, including a cousin who was there the day before.
