    Emotions flow at second vigil for Haleigh

    Letters from a jailed father, a poem from a grieving grandmother, prayers and tears marked the first anniversary of the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings at a vigil Wednesday night within yards of the home from which she vanished.

    But the most emotional message came from Teresa Neves, the paternal grandmother of Haleigh, who read part of a letter from Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings. He is in the Putnam County Jail on drug charges.

    "Momma, I hung a picture of Haleigh and (Ronald Cummings) Junior on my wall right above my pillow ... When I turn over and go to sleep, and wake up, they are the first thing that I see and the last thing before I go to sleep," Neves tearfully read. "I miss them so much ... Haleigh is such a little tomboy. She is her daddy's little girl."

    Cummings' sister, Crystal Cummings, read another letter from him in which he dreams of sheriff's officials taking him somewhere without telling him why.
    "And then it will hit me -- there's Haleigh, there's my daughter right in front of my eyes," he wrote. "I long for that day more than I long to live."

    Sheffield was at Wednesday's event but did not speak.

    Putnam pauses for Haleigh
    Thursday, February 11, 2010 1:50 AM EST
    <snipped>
    Teddy bears guarded framed pictures of the 6-year-old along a purple-draped table, which would become an altar for hundreds of candles by the night's end.

    Crystal Sheffield, Haleigh's mother, said it felt like it was just yesterday. "I didn't think it would come to this," Sheffield said. "A part of me is missing and nobody will tell us where she is or let us know - it's not fair to her."

    Sheffield said she still believes Haleigh is alive, and did not think it would take this long to find her. "It can't go on forever," she said.

    Griffis said that Croslin seems to be playing games and needs to "just come clean."

    "It's like she's baiting the sheriff's office with 'give me what I want and I'll give you what you want'," Griffis said. "If she's alive, help us get her back. If she's not alive, we still want her back so we can give her a place to rest so we can go visit her."

    Sheffield did not give a clear answer as to whether or not she felt Croslin was involved in her daughter's disappearance. "I'm not out to judge nobody," Sheffield said. "I'll can do is pray."

    Vigil revives hope for finding Haleigh Cummings
    Story updated at 6:27 AM on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010
    <snipped>
    About 100 people commemorated the one-year anniversary of Haleigh Cummings’ disappearance Wednesday night by praying for her safe return during a cold Satsuma sundown. Within walking distance of the mobile home where she disappeared, family members and friends and neighbors held aloft candles and released balloons while praying that Haleigh would soon be found alive.

    Haleigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield, attended the event but did not speak. Family members said the anniversary had been hard on her. Many people came up to Sheffield and hugged her while asking how she was holding up. The event ended with all of the lit candles being put on a table. Sheffield and other family members put their candles down first, and were followed by everyone else in attendance.

    Several family members called on God to help them find Haleigh. “I’m still waiting for God to answer our question on where Haleigh is,” said Marie Griffis, Haleigh’s maternal grandmother, who started out by reading a Bible verse. “I’m standing still waiting for an answer.”

    Haleigh’s father, Ronald Cummings, is in jail on drug charges and could not attend the event. Her paternal grandmother, Teresa Nieves, read a letter from Cummings about how much he missed Haleigh. Cummings has put Haleigh’s picture on the wall of his jail cell and it’s the first thing he sees in the morning and the last thing he sees at night, Nieves said. “His greatest wish is to see Haleigh again,” she said.

    Ann Dugger, executive director of the Justice Coalition, said the vigil was a sign that police and the community were not giving up on the case. “We’re here to offer hope and we will not give up,” said Dugger. “If anyone out there has answers on where Haleigh is we’re asking them to do the right thing and come forward.

    But police believe the people who know the most are in jail, specifically Haleigh’s father and her former stepmother, Misty Croslin.

    UPDATED: Croslin, Cummings tapes show tedious nature of jail life

    If anything, the release of audio and video recordings of jailhouse conversations between family members and Ronald Cummings, Misty Croslin and Hank "Tommy" Croslin Jr. show how tedious incarceration can be.

    Hours of recordings of them talking with relatives have been released, and much of the conversation revolves around life in jail: the food, the cold and the restrictions.

    In one conversation, Cummings talks of visiting the dentist for tooth pain. He notes the dentist probably would give him Lortabs, a trade name for a form of hydrocodone, one of the narcotics he is accused of selling.

    "It's better to tough it out," Cummings said. "If I can tough it out in here, I can tough it out out there."

    UPDATED: 1 Year Ago: Amber Alert For Haleigh
    Sheriff's Office Releases Updated Information On Haleigh Investigation
    POSTED: Wednesday, February 10, 2010
    UPDATED: 9:44 pm EST February 10, 2010
    <snipped>
    After investigators checked out 5,768 leads over the past 12 months, the sheriff's office still isn't sure what happened to Haleigh. And while investigators have not identified a person of interest in the case, they said evidence and information obtained indicate a strong likelihood that Haleigh's disappearance is the result of foul play by someone known to Misty Cummings and/or Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings.

    "What do you say to the family that their child went missing and we have not been able to bring it to a logical conclusion at this point," Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy said. "What we don't know is we can't break this timeline between Feb. 9 and the morning of the 10th. ... The reality could be that the child might not be alive."

    Family, friends and supporters gathered Wednesday night for a candlelight vigil for Haleigh in Satsuma, hoping and praying the girl will return home.

    UPDATED: Family, Friends Gather for Haleigh Cummings Vigil
    Created: 2/10/2010 7:28:27 AM
    Updated: 2/11/2010 3:06:46 AM

    Family and friends, along with the Justice Coalition, have gathered in Satsuma for a public candlelight vigil to remember Haleigh Cummings. The vigil began at 6 p.m. in the same neighborhood she vanished from one year ago.

    At the vigil, which is at the corner of Tyler Street and Monroe Avenue, the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni will be set up to offer free child identification kits. Included in the kits is everything you need to take inkless fingerprints, cards for detailing a child's physical description, a place to keep a recent photo and an easy to use swab to take and store a small DNA sample.

    Ronald Cummings lived in a trailer with his girlfriend, Misty, a year ago when the girl disappeared. Deputies made the trailer off-limits for weeks, and her family never moved back into the home in the Satsuma neighborhood near Highway 17.

    Misty's brother, Tommy Croslin, and her father, Hank Croslin Sr., lived about 100 yards away in the same neighborhood.

    But neighbors say Hank Croslin Sr. moved out last Saturday, leaving behind some broken furniture and toys on the road. The seven neighbors First Coast News talked to Tuesday said they were glad all the relatives are gone.

    "They were a nuisance to the neighborhood," said neighbor Stephanie Santos. "They were very scary to the kids."

    Misty Croslin Jail Interview Released
    Croslin Speaks To Mother During Jail Visit
    POSTED: 7:34 am EST February 11, 2010
    UPDATED: 8:21 am EST February 11, 2010

    In the interview, Croslin seemed to admit to her role in the drug ring.

    •Croslin: I did not give the guy ... I did not sell the whole time. I'm being charged with everybody.
    •Mother: I know. That's what I don't understand. I mean you told the truth. Why do they keep putting charges on you?
    •Croslin: Exactly.

    Croslin also told her mother she wants people to stop asking her about Haleigh.

    •Croslin: They're not going to put me away for something I didn't do, and I didn't have anything to do with Haleigh, and if I knew who did, I would tell. I've told them everything that I can tell them, so they need to leave me alone about this. Why I'm in this jail has nothing to do with Haleigh.
    •Mother: That's right.
    •Croslin: Then leave me alone.

    Misty To Mom: "I Didn't Have Anything To Do With Haleigh"
    Posted: 7:51 am EST February 11, 2010
    Updated: 8:07 am EST February 11, 2010

    New jailhouse video was released Thursday showing Misty Croslin-Cummings speaking with her mother during a jailhouse visitation. Investigators say Croslin-Cummings was the last person to see missing 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings, her then step-daughter, before she disappeared one year ago.

    "They're not gonna put me away for something I didn't do, and I didn't have anything to do with Haleigh," Croslin-Cummings told her mother by jail phone.

    In the recording, Croslin-Cummings tells her mother that police need to "leave her alone," because she has told them everything she knows about the missing little girl.

    Jailhouse talk: 'I didn't have anything to do with Haleigh'
    Last Update: 10:08 am
    <snipped>
    Misty is in the St. Johns County Jail on charges of illegally dealing in prescription drugs. Her bail is set at $1.35 million.

    "If they give me 20 years in prison it'll be OK because you guys will come see me. I'll get out and everything will be fine. I'm not scared," she said.

    "You'll be old and gray like me," her mother replied.

    Misty believes authorities are trying to force a confession out of her. "I've told them everything I can tell them and they need to leave me alone about that," she told her mother.
