Sheriff: Feud Between Haleigh's Parents Not Helping Case
Missing 5-Year-Old Girl Last Seen In Early February

"The investigation has had so many different angles to it that it's been extremely difficult to try to narrow and focus it down to where it needs to be. Also, as previously reported, there have been so many inconsistencies in statements and stories."
Some of the inconsistencies have come from the last person who saw Haleigh -- Misty Croslin, the 17-year-old who recently married Haleigh's father, Ronald Cummings.
The sheriff couldn't talk about her specific statements, but he did talk about the suddenly public and angry battle of words between Cummings and Haleigh's mother, Crystal Sheffield.
The sheriff said their fight is not helping his investigation.
"Unfortunately, in the last few weeks, it seems to have lost the focus of what our mission is here," Hardy said.
The goal is still to find Haleigh -- or answers -- after seven weeks of searching.

“What’s going on in Putnam County? Somebody’s not doing their job! And my grand daughter’s been gone too long now,” said Marie Griffis.
“I’m mad! I’m mad because my granddaughter’s gone, and somebody’s going to account for her…I’m tired of this, and it’s gone on too long.”
Griffis also says she shares in the frustration that tips are starting to come in more slowly.
“I will accept any help from anybody who wants to tell me anything about my granddaughter.”
Inside the Haleigh Bug Foundation we have learned members of Haleigh’s family will march in Crescent City’s annual Catfish Festival this upcoming weekend. They tell us they plan on marching alongside children who knew Haleigh. Adults and kids will pass out flyers and wear shirts showing Haleigh’s face to keep people on the lookout.
The Haleigh Bug Foundation has also set up a new permanent land-line where you can phone in donations. To reach volunteers, call (386) 649-9078.
