    UPDATED: Officers Focus On Large Dumpster In Search For Haleigh
    Investigator: Cadaver Dog Alerts Officers To Dumpster
    POSTED: Thursday, February 26, 2009

    A detective in the case told Channel 4 that at about 5 p.m. a cadaver dog alerted an officer to something in the Dumpster. However, exactly what scent the dog picked up remains unknown.
    Investigators set up a blue tarp around the Dumpster and put up floodlights as they began sorting through the contents of the Dumpster.


    "It could be various items, and may not necessarily be something related to the case," said Brian Selzer, of Canine Search and Rescue as investigators searched through the plastic bags found in the Dumpster.
    Selzer explained that the dogs brought to Satsuma on Thursday have been trained to alert only on the scent of human decomposition, not meat or dead animals. He said the dogs could hit on a something a small as a bandage used to cover a person's bloody cut.
    The search by cadaver dogs was the first time in the 17 days of searching for the missing girl, Haleigh's family hopes this search comes up empty.


    Also Thursday, Misty Croslin, the 17-year-old girlfriend of Haleigh's father who was the last person to see the girl, was seen driving off in a car with a Putnam County detective. Later in the day, other detectives talked with Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings, inside the doublewide mobile home that has been considered a crime scene since the girl disappeared.
    Putnam County officials had said it was normal to re-interview family and acquaintances during the course of the investigation.

    His family's nightly vigil is now smaller, and closed to the media. And according to Ronald's family, he's not eating and not sleeping. "It's just unbearable. He's broken hearted. He's lost. His little girl's lost. He just wants her back home," says Ronald's grandmother, Annette Sykes.
    Looking exhausted, Cummings made only one public plea Wednesday for his daughter's return. "Whoever's got my daughter, please, please, please bring my daughter home."

    Investigators went through the bags one by one. A backhoe was also brought in to sift through the debris that remained in the Dumpster.
    Approximately 12 cadaver dogs will be brought back out on Friday.

    Haleigh Cummings searchers are pouring through Dumpster
    Helen Eckinger | Sentinel Staff Writer

    <snipped>
    Investigators have begun pouring through a garbage Dumpster in Putnam County in the hope of finding something that belongs to missing Haleigh Cummings -- perhaps even her remains, CNN is reporting.
    CFN13 is reporting that the Dumpster is a quarter of a mile away from Haleigh's home in Satsuma, a rural community about 80 miles north of Orlando.
    Police today are using teams of cadaver dogs to search areas near Cummings' home in Satsuma.

    Investigators earlier brought Haleigh's father's girlfriend back in for further questioning, WFTV.com reported. Misty Croslin, 17, was the last person to see five-year-old Haleigh Cummings, who disappeared more than two weeks ago.

    Haleigh's Mom: "I'm Very Mad"
    Created: 2/26/2009 6:03:49 PM
    Updated: 2/26/2009 6:49:13 PM

    SATSUMA, FL -- Angry over rumors she was in hiding today, Haleigh Cummings' mother spoke to First Coast News to clear the air.
    Crystal Sheffield spoke with First Coast News Jackelyn Barnard at 6 Thursday evening, and expressed her feelings over the rumors about her.
    "I'd like it to stop," she said, adding that while her daughter is missing, she isn't going anywhere.
    The rumor that she wasn't available started Thursday when investigators went looking for Sheffield to get a DNA sample, which Sheffield confirmed. First Coast News confirmed Sheffield did give a DNA sample to investigators today.
    She said she wasn't hiding from anyone.

    "It's very frustrating...I'm very mad right now," she concluded.

    SATSUMA, FL -- Late Thursday afternoon, investigators, who have had their busiest day in about a week, went to the neighborhood behind Haleigh Cummings' house and began searching through a construction dumpster.
    After 5 p.m., the search moved into the Villas neighborhood, which is just on the other side of a fence from where Ronald and Haleigh Cummings' house is.
    First Coast News Erich Spivey says investigators were following a tip from area neighbors.
    It is not clear if this is the first time this area has been searched, or specifically what searchers are after as they looked through the large dumpster.
    Investigators did not find anything in the dumpster pertaining to the case.

    <snipped>
    Investigators tell us a cadaver dog led them to the dumpster earlier today, but they cannot tell us why it was led there. Detectives are now empyting out the garbage from the dumpster, searching for any new information to lead them to Haleigh.
    The sheriff's office has set up flood lights to aid in searching the dumpster. There are multiple investigators handling this search.
    Earlier today cadaver dogs searched an area surrounding Haleigh's home. Police tell us this search is to ensure that nothing was overlooked in looking for the missing five-year-old. The canine teams are apart of a non-law enforcement organization, that specializes in finding human remains.
