    This was reported today. I am not sure how to link as it's on all the local news. This doesn't surprise me as I still think that she's buried close to where RC or TN resided.

    Staff Reports


    Investigators said a human bone that was found in the St. Johns River in April did not belong to Haleigh Cummings.

    The bone is that of a long-dead Native American, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

    UF forensic anthropologist Mike Warren made that determination.

    Search teams scoured the St. Johns River in April in connection with the Haleigh case. They said they found two cinder blocks, which were sent to a lab to be tested.

    Kimster, posted in the media link and today's updates.
    This is so sad, LE must of thought they finally had something and now it turns out to be a bone from a native American. I wonder if other bones or teeth were found. It is so frustrating that LE does not share much, I know they don't have to and if it will help get the person who hurt Haleigh charged I understand. But it is still frustrating. I now wonder if the other items that were found came back from the lab and there is a pending arrest? I pray that this time LE got something to help in the Haleigh Investigation.
    I also wonder if this bone is what made LE change the status of Haleigh being missing to a Homicide investigation and if so, then they were wrong. Will they now go back and say the case is still a missing person case? So many questions and no answers
    . :banghead:

    Just guessing here. Maybe it was not mentioned before because the bone was too large to be one of Haleigh's?

    Haleigh Cummings: Bone found not hers

    Theresa Collington June 21, 2010

    PUTNAM COUNTY, Florida -- The bone is that of a long-dead Native American, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office. Investigators said the discovery is not that unusual, given the number of Native American burial grounds in Putnam County.

    The determination was made by the Forensic Anthropology lab at the University of Florida, according to the Sheriff's Office.

    At the time, Sheriff Jeff Hardy said Haleigh was likely dead, and the investigation had moved from a missing person case to a homicide investigation.

    Misty Cummings, was seen at the river being questioned by investigators during their search.

    Investigators said they got a tip that led them to the Shell Harbour Road Boat Ramp, a place they had not searched. Sources say tip came from Hank Croslin Jr.

    Misty Cummings, Hank Croslin Jr. and Ronald Cummings, are all in jail on drug charges unrelated to the Haleigh case.

    They believe she is still alive.

    Police: Bone Found In River Not Haleigh's
    Putnam County Investigators Searched River In April For Missing Girl


    UPDATED: Monday, June 21, 2010
    "Snip" http://www.news4jax.com/news/23976333/detail.html


    PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- Investigators said a human bone that was found in the St. Johns River in April did not belong to Haleigh Cummings.

    The bone is that of a long-dead Native American.

    The determination was made by forensic anthropologist Mike.

    Investigators searched the river for several days in April in connection with the Haleigh case. They said they found two cinder blocks, which were sent to a lab to be tested.

    At the time, Sheriff Jeff Hardy said Haleigh was likely dead, and the investigation had moved from a missing person case to a homicide investigation. In a news release Monday, the Sheriff's Office said the case is still considered an active criminal investigation.

    Haleigh's family said they never once believed the girl's body would be found in the river.

    "She's out there somewhere alive," said Annette Sykes "Unless they can prove to me she's not, then this family is looking for a live little girl."

    "Every day is about finding Haleigh," said Theresa Neves. "You get up in the morning and pray this is the day, and you go to bed each night and pray."

    Neves said she told Haleigh's father, that the bone found by investigators was not Haleigh's.

    "He's glad that everyone knows that the bones aren't Haleigh's," Neves said.

    Very disappointing. I have to wonder if they'll go back to the 'source' of the information and go at them harder for giving false information. Or they may search other docking areas.

    I bet. In that Cindy Anthony way right?

    :waitasec: Is it just me or does this reaction not seem strange? TN said that Ronald said, "He's glad that everyone knows that the bones aren't Haleigh's,". I would of expected a grieving father to say, thank God they are not of Haleigh or something to that effect. Instead all he cares to say is " Glad the Public Knows they are not her bones" Not that he is glad that it was not her bone? :waitasec: Odd, Maybe it is just me.

    Did any of you see the video of Teresa and Annette? I was trying to link to the video, but when I went back all I could find was the link you all have. It was at Annette's house I think. Wonder if they will put it back up in the archives or not?

    The video isn't online yet. It was on the 6pm news, I believe. It should be online shortly. :)

    OK....the bone didn't belong to her. Fine.
    Did they find ANYTHING related to her? Is it still a homicide investigation? Will Misty and Tommy be charged for giving false information? With all the alligators in that river, did they really think they'd find something?

    Really, these questions have no answers. I'm thinking out loud. No need to quote me and answer my questions since we know there won't be any answers for awhile. I'm just gonna sit in my corner rocking back and forth. :crazy:

    SOMETHING has to give. SOMEONE has to do something!

    I agree. When RC excused himself and said he went out to visit with HaLeigh I would not be surprised if he went to visit her grave in the forest somewhere. I think she is respectfully buried.

    MADJGNLAW...BBM Red.. I can assure you it's not just you... It all boils down to nothing but a whole lot of contrived carpola...IMHO.. From LE as well as Ron C, his mother, and his grandmother.... JMO

    BBM. Sounds to me like a "So there!" remark (hands on hips, raspberries ;)). "They're not HaLeigh's bones. It's not HaLeigh. I don't know nothin'. I was at werk."
