Police Treating Disappearance of Missing Haleigh Cummings as an Abduction … Texas EquuSearch to Help in Search Efforts
5 year old Haleigh Cummings has been missing since Monday night, February 9, 2009 from her father’s mobile home in Satsuma, FL approximately 70 miles north of Orlando. Her father, Ronald Cummings, discovered her missing when he returned home from work at about 3 AM Tuesday morning.
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is now treating the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings as a kidnapping or abduction as they states that the 5 year old did not wander away from home there is no evidence that she was in the area.
Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Major Gary Bowling says there’s no longer any reason to believe Haleigh wandered away. Bowling says there’s no evidence of Haleigh near her home.
Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Maj. Gary Bowling stated that the police must “assume abduction. All the answers to why you’d want to take a 5-year-old are ugly.”
I received a phone call last night from Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearch that he was in Florida at the request of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office to help search for missing Haleigh Cummings. Tim Miller stated that he arrived in Florida on Wednesday and would meet with the Sheriff’s office to map out a plan of action. Florida members of TES will be assembled as well as TES members will drive and fly in to begin search efforts. Tim Miller stated, “we must find this missing girl”.
