HALEIGH'S FAMILY ASKED TO MOVE TENTS OFF LAND
The family of missing 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings has been asked to move their tents from property near their home in Putnam County.
The landowner asked both Ron Cummings and Haleigh's mother Crystal Sheffield to relocate. Family members said they're not giving up hope that Haleigh will come home alive.

He said more than 2,300 tips have come in but unfortunately none have led to Haleigh. "The piece of info that's going to come and lead us to her we haven't found it. That's all there is to it," Schauland said.
He said no one is considered a suspect or a person of interest in the case because "We don't know what the crime is. All we know is that Haleigh is missing. Let me assure you that no one is out of the mix."
On Wednesday, anyone who had been inside the Cummings' home was asked to give a DNA sample. Police called it a routine part of their investigation.
Also on Wednesday, the parents of Misty Croslin, the last person to see Haleigh before the child was reported missing, told Channel 4 they are still suspicious about a cousin in Tennessee who had been in Satsuma around the time Haleigh went missing. When police were asked about those concerns they said again that no one is a suspect and no one has been ruled out.
Haleigh's family on Tuesday released more photos and home video of the kindergartner and set up a Facebook page to help get her story before more people.
Nightly candlelight vigils held at the family tent compound since Haleigh disappeared were being moved up from 8:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Missing Girl's Mom Asked To Move Campsite
For 23 days, Crystal Sheffield's family has camped out along the road leading to the mobile home where the 5-year-old disappeared in the middle of the night. They are committed to being there so she can embrace Haleigh the moment police drive up with her daughter.
"I got really upset -- I cried -- because I just want to be close," Sheffield said Wednesday morning. Her family is hoping to relocate her tent compound about one-quarter mile up the road where the group Texas Equusearch was set up two weeks earlier while there was an active search of the area.

Haleigh's Family Moving from Memorial Wall Camp

The makeshift camp has grown in size, in part because of all the memorials left for Haleigh, who has been missing since she went to bed on the night of February 9. The family, who lives in Baker County, says the spot next to the wall is as close to the investigation as they can be.
But Haleigh's grandmother says the owner of the River Villas asked them to move.
River Villas co-owner Richard Jennings told First Coast News his heart goes out to the family but he has asked the family about their future plans. Jennings says the presence of the camp has sparked questions and concerns about the safety of the family. The camp is near a busy intersection and a railroad track.
Jennings says he's not forcing the family to move but he wants to know if they're planning to move on. Haleigh's family says they're faced with a new challenge now.
They're asking a property owner across the street if they can set up at that location.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office, meantime, released 7 DVDs containing a week's worth of dispatch calls starting from the morning Haleigh disappeared.

Police confirm the FBI has talked to Joe. Croslin's father says he spoke to police about the teenager on Tuesday. "I was into the police station yesterday telling them everything. I hope I don't get in trouble for saying, but ya know. I don't know what else to do."
The First Coast News I-team has found Joe's myspace page. The last posting on his site is from February 22, 2009. A friend by the name of Thomas told Joe, "Just go back down there and help find the lil girl it just might clear your name."
The Croslins say about two weeks before Haleigh disappeared, Joe and Haleigh's dad, Ronald Cummings, had an issue over a gun. "He stole Ronald's gun. One morning, on the porch, said, Ronald will get what's coming to him. It was dropped, he left and Haleigh was gone," says Lisa Croslin.
Police confirm they are investigating the information about the stolen gun.
A week and a half ago, when police were asked if Joe was a suspect police said, "The one in Tennessee? No, he is not at all." But then later, police changed their comment to no one has been ruled in or out as a suspect.
"The way I understand it, they're not ruling them out. I don't want to get in trouble for things I say, I don't know. The police is doing their jobs," says Hank Croslin.
