Haleigh Cummings: Bone found not hers

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.

Putnam County Investigators Searched River In April For Missing Girl
UPDATED: Monday, June 21, 2010
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.
