Missing Haleigh Cummings Connection? Chad Eugene Reynolds, Sex Offender Missing Since February 4, 2009 from Ochlawaha, FL


Coincidence or material to the case of missing 5 year old Haleigh Cummings


25 year old Chad Eugene Reynolds, a registered sex offender is missing in Florida. Chad Eugene Reynolds was last seen on February 1, 2009 when he left his mother’s home at 3 Bay Court Run in Ocklawaha on that Sunday to watch the Super Bowl at a local bar. Reynolds was reported missing on February 4. Ocklawaha is about 2 hours away from Satsuma, FL where Haleigh Cummings went missing. Haleigh Cummings was last seen on the night of February 9 at approximately 10 pm. Could there possibly be a connection?

Scared Monkeys had previously reported that there were 44 sex offenders within a 5 mile radius of the Cummings’ home. However, could what police are leaning towards in an abduction been committed by a sex offender outside that 5 mile radius?

Chad Eugene Reynolds, 25, was last seen Feb. 1 leaving his mother’s home in Ochlawaha, Fla. — about two hours from Haleigh’s home — police said. He was reported missing on Feb. 4.

Reynolds reportedly borrowed a car from a friend and then later called to say the vehicle had broken down near the Marion/Lake County Lines, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. The car was located in an undisclosed location south of Marion County, but Reynolds was nowhere to be found.

Chad Eugene Reynolds had been previously sentenced in Putnum County, the same county where Haleigh was reported missing, for armed burglary and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12 that occurred on Sept. 3, 2002. Reynolds was released in November and is on 10 years of community supervision. Chad Reynolds has not been called a suspect officially; however, any common sense thinking person would have to put him in a person of interest category.

The story of Chad Reynold’s broken down vehicle sounds fishy at best. Why would the broken down vehicle not have been in the same location as initially stated.

Chad Reynolds reportedly called Baker and told her he was at the Wal-Mart in Summerfield and that the vehicle had broken down.

By the time Baker got there, Reynolds had gone. Baker later found her vehicle in Sumter County along U.S. 441. Baker told deputies the last time she spoke to Reynolds was 2:15 a.m. the following Monday. Five minutes after that call, Reynolds called his mother’s home but did not leave a message. On Feb. 3, a man identified only as “Ryan” told deputies he received a call from Reynolds; however, he did not speak with him because the phone was disconnected as soon as he said hello.

Deputies contacted Reynolds’ place of employment, Longhorn Steakhouse restaurant in Sumter County, and was told by the manager that Reynolds had not reported to work for two days.

UPDATE I: Chad Eugene Reynolds MySpace Account

Maybe there should have been a flashing warning on his Myspace account that he was a registered sex offender. At the very least in Chad’s details where it says children, maybe the answer should have been “lewd and lascivious molestation”.

      does anyone know how close the vehicle being abandoned on US 441 would be to where haleigh lives? this guy sounds like he could be a suspect………..for real. he’s the same age as the girl’s father, could they possibly know each other?

    2. Jack on February 15th, 2009 5:53 pm

      Reynolds could be a murder victim hisself.I mean he raped somone and somone could have got him.poor haleigh went missing 9 days after reynolds.

      Do we have any more pictures of Haighley?

      Things that make you go Hhhmmmmnnnnnn…..

    6. D.Schmier on February 15th, 2009 7:53 pm

      #3 STN after reading his web page he seems to have a lot of ‘friends’ who are concerned about him–several of the posts have a sense of urgency and tell him to call can his cell phone be traced by any remote way? Also as one poster stated he himself may have fallen victim to foul play (his past seems pretty shady)
      Wonder if any of his ‘friends’ know anything? wonder if they have been questioned? Just a thot.

    7. STN on February 15th, 2009 8:44 pm

      I thought that too. I would think (hope!) the police would check with the “friends.” I also noticed he lists his hometown as south Florida and that he put his mood on the last day he logged on (and the same day I think he went missing) as “adventurous”. It looks like he has a Facebook page too but you have to have an account to see details and I can’t be bothered to go through that hassle. I’m guessing the police have checked out all this stuff.

    8. Gigi on February 15th, 2009 9:05 pm

      i tried to go to http://www.blinkoncrime.com but it is still under construction. are we not going to use this site for further discussion of this matter? help!!! i just found this site and LOVE it here. i feel like we’re all investigators together.

    9. HOPE on February 15th, 2009 9:22 pm

      I, honestly, don’t think this is your guy. He says he’s athletic, but, in reality he’s on the small side. I would imagine six and a half years ago, when he was nineteen, he picked up young girls. They probably thought he was younger, until he robbed them. In my opinion, if Haleigh was abducted, it was by an older man that lived in the area… close. Someone who knew her famity. Maybe a father to one of her friends, uncle or grandfather… someone who knew how to get in and out of that trailer and knew the working habits of the father. He could have visited, recently, to unlock the back door. It has to be someone close to the family. IMO

      God Bless Little Haleigh with a way out so she can return to her family. I pray, with all my heart, it’s not too late.

      Did you see George “I tooks all me BP pills
      in one night and warshed it down with a Budweezer”
      Anthony on Geraldo tonight???

      Sheesh! Geraldo asked him: Do you regret cooperating with law enforcement?

      George looked at his lawyer. He didn’t even answer.

      What a simple question!

      What a heaping load that guy is. I keep thinking
      the Anthonys cannot be for real. Yet each time I
      turn on HLN or FOX… THERE THEY ARE.

      I beg of you… GO… A-W-A-Y ANTHONYS!!!

      Give Haleigh the air time she needs to be found!

      #8 Gigi,
      I to tried to go to blink crime thingy but wasn’t able to–I ‘m with you 100% I LOVE this site–seems as if we all have a common goal–find the precious children and see JUSTICE done.
      #9 Hope–we don’t know how old that photo is of him–after being in jail for a few I DOUBT he still has that ‘soft,innocent look’ as he does in that photo–also I had asked in another forum but got no feed back–COULD HE BE RELATED TO MISTY in some way–if so he wouldn’t have to ‘know the lay out of the trailer’ Misty would have told him. IF this precious child is in any way impaired p[hysicaly or mentaly she needs far more supervison than a 17 year young girl with her harmones raging.
      He COULD be a victim of foul play as I said given his history.
      Have they checked the junk yards in the Palatka area? B uffalo Bluff road is pretty rural and areas secluded (or it WAS in the late 80′s).
      Father,PLEASE keep Haliegh in the Palm of YOUR Hand and return her safe in body and in mind to her family.Keep her from any and all harm.
      Strengthen the family during this time a time to draw close not tear apart. In Jesus Name–A-men—

      I was wondering for those of you that are avid Myspace users. I went to look at Chads myspace page and noticed that all of the pics that are in there were updated today the 15th of February?
      Isn’t that strange as it shows he has not checked in since the 1st of February.
      Why or how could this be?

      #8 Nancy
      Hi Nancy-I AM NOT a myspace or face book user at all BUT and this is a guess/mo–I guess the sites automatically update the site ever so often (every 14 days maybe?) Anyway I THINK it may work like a email or voice mail message the calls are ‘recorded’ so you can return them if you want–perhaps he himself is hurt somewhere (you know HIS mom is going through a time now),that may explain how/why it was ‘updated yesterday’. Not sure tho how any of it works.Please continue to pray for Haleigh’s safe return SOON and for her to be safe.

    14. HOPE on February 16th, 2009 12:43 am

      This is for all those people that think I am a perfect person that takes up too much space, and pray too much.


      Carpe can tell you. There is not a single thing that I love more than to give glory to the One who deserves it. Because of Him all things are possible and there is always, always hope… come what may. Besides, a promise is a promise. That’s being me.

      I know it’s not my business and I don’t keep up with the politics around here, but I hope Blink and Red come to an understanding. I think they make a good team… and I enjoyed Blink’s enthusiasm. I’ve always known Red to be able to take it as well as to dish it out and things in black and white can easily be misconstrued.

      They are definitely lying about the sleeping

      GRACE: When they called to tell you little Haleigh was missing, Miss Sheffield, did they have a theory about what had happened to her?

      SHEFFIELD: They just said that someone come in there and took her. That`s what they told me.

      CUMMINGS: Somebody stole my child out of >
      my bed.

      I come home from my work and my child was not there.

      VAN SUSTEREN: How far was Haleigh physically sleeping from you?

      CUMMINGS: Probably not three or four inches away. She was in front of the TV, not that far away at all.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Did you say three or four inches away?

      CROSLIN: I mean, I am not sure. It was not that far away.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Can you hold up your hands and show how far away she was sleeping?

      CROSLIN: Probably from both of these chairs put together from my bed.

      VAN SUSTEREN: About as far as Ronald is from you?

      CROSLIN: Yes.

      CUMMINGS: No.

      CROSLIN: No?

      CUMMINGS: I know where the beds were at. They are about four feet apart from the edge of the bed she was in to the edge of the bed Haleigh was in.


      VAN SUSTEREN: I know you both took a polygraph today. Did they say you were deceptive or not on the polygraph. Did they tell you how your results were? How were yours, Ronald?

      CUMMINGS: Absolutely, they did. And it was not today that we took a polygraph. We took the polygraph yesterday. And, yes, we both did pass.

      VAN SUSTEREN: Misty, what did they say about your results?

      CROSLIN: You mean that I passed?

      VAN SUSTEREN: Did they use the word “pass,” or did they say there was no sign of deception?

      CUMMINGS: They told me that I passed.

      CROSLIN: They really did not say much to me.

      GRACE: Now, have you and your girlfriend both taken a polygraph, right?

      CUMMINGS: Yes, I have. Passed it with flying colors. Yes, she has. Passed hers.


      He says he passed it with flying colors.

      Who gives a chit about FLYING COLORS???

      This case should prove to be more and more interesting as each day

      There is no doubt in my mind at this point Cummings & Croslin know more about what is going on. LE really has their work cut out for them… because if you lie about simple things when your
      family member vanishes off the planet… there is a good chance you might be lying about the larger issues too.

      Buckle in, folks. This one may just get nasty!

      God Bless Haleigh

      What also stands out to me:

      Is how much Cummings already says he KNOWS.

      I KNOW what happened to my daughter.

      I KNOW they picked the lock.

      I KNOW somebody snatched her out of MY BED.

      I KNOW I will “KILL > HIM”

      I’ll shoot > HIM through the cruiser window.

      He (this mysterious HIM) is a PIECE OF TRASH.

      Cummings seems to KNOW a whole bunch for a guy
      that at this point, doesn’t KNOW squat.

      Am I the only one picking up on these things?

      …or am I trippin’ again ???

    19. flaseapony on February 16th, 2009 6:33 am

      The person responsible for Haley’s dissappearance is probably someone the little girl knows.

      She was most likely driven away in a car. A 17 year old is hardly life smart to raise a 2 and 5 year old. She is still a kid herself!

      My suspicions lie with the girlfriend, and friends of both the girlfriend and father.

      Reality of a time window is closing. Prayers that this precious child will be found alive.

    20. flaseapony on February 16th, 2009 6:38 am

      Hey Carp,

      Cummings stated “I’ll shoot them through the cruiser window”. What did he mean? A PT cruiser or the police cruiser when the suspect is picked up? What do you think?

    21. D.Schmier on February 16th, 2009 8:36 am

      Morning Monkey Peeps
      Hmmmm still no sign of this precious one (or reynolds either) may I give one of my ‘famous opinions’? :) :):)
      #14 Hope–sorry to burst your bubble–there was ONLY ONE perfect One and we hung HIM on a tree–Like you I talk to HIM daily even hourly and ALWAYS KNOW who makes ALL THINGS possiable:):):)Been walking one on one with HIM 34 years March 23rd and HE’s alright on target.My favored/perfered name for myself is FAITH (cause I walk by faith not by sight:):)Mo your posts are always informative and humble but what do I know?:):)
      #17 & 18 Carpe excellent posts with many unanswered questions–as the window for her safety closes I pray JUSTICE for her and Caylee and very soon–
      #20think it might be police cruiser but who really knows–his referance to ‘he’s a piece of trash’ tells you what kind of people he allowed around his own children how very sad–Children are to be protected (at least the Monkey Peeps KNOW this) not exposed to unsavory people and surroundings–so many don’t get it–a child is NOT property but a precious human being( even if a person is ‘poor’ they do not have to be violent(have police checked that the dad WAS at work the hours he said he was–did he have a long lunch break? Long enough to go home,find her maybe misbehaving and take her with him? He passed the polygraph test (or so he was told) but to many questions still exist.
      Have a good one all–outta here for a dew–catch ya’ll later
      D (FAITH:):):) Today show 7:22 MST reporting on Haliegh–relating to you as it comes in:–Search being suspended–talking to the aunt no new leads,not a clue time to stop searching and follow up on leads–more photos released–girlfriend questioned again(her body laungage is telling) scent of the child from trailer to river,back to the trailer then rail road tracks–over 500 leads and more family questioning.Doesn’t look good for this tot–

    22. Confused on February 16th, 2009 8:43 am

      Why do you feel Chad is involved with Haleigh? Just because he is missing? Chad been missing since Feb 4, what’s the theory of what he was doing until Haleigh disappeared?

      What do you know about Chad and what he has been doing since his charge?

      What about Haleigh’s grandmother and the Alabama Georgia story? Saying Haleigh is in another state.

      What connection is there between Chad and any family member? This seems like a stick together family. Wouldn’t someone be talking about Chad if he was known by family?

      Has anyone read this blog http://eyesforlies.blogspot.com/2009/02/ronald-cummings-misty-croslin-and.html
      Interesting about body language.

      Trailer Where Jessica Lunsford Died Burns Down in Suspicious Fire
      Monday, February 16, 2009

      Jessica Lunsford
      Jessica Lunsford
      HOMOSASSA, Fla. — The mobile home where a repeat sex offender raped and murdered a 9-year-old Florida girl in 2005 has burned down, officials said.

      Citrus County officials said Monday that the fire was suspicious. John Evander Couey’s former trailer was vacant when the fire started Sunday night, but officials say it’s a “total loss” because of extensive damage. The fire investigation was turned over to the Florida State Fire Marshals Office.

      Couey told investigators he kept Jessica in a closet for several days before burying her alive in a shallow grave outside the trailer. Jessica had been abducted from her home nearby.

      Couey was convicted of murder and sentenced to death.
      could Haliegh be here on the property somewhere? Also stated they had only lived in that trailer where she went missing for 2 weeks what are the chances she was trying to find her old home?

    24. Richard on February 16th, 2009 9:34 am

      Notice that this ‘guy,’ on his MySpace account above, professes to be a Christian. I doubt that many of us would bow to his use of the term.

      Anyway, unless it can be found that he has some previous tie to the family, I’d think it unlikely that he just happened to be in the “right” place at the “right” time.

      My guess is that someone with some ties to Caleigh’s family, even if only because of living in the same area, is responsible.

    25. Terri on February 16th, 2009 10:05 am

      I have to add this piece of information. I do hope that they find this little girl, unharmed. It is so sad.

      I live in a double wide trailer, also. Someone broke into my house by using a garden hoe to push it between the two window panes, push the lower window in (bypassing the window locks) and pushing the window up enough to crawl in the window. There was no damage to the window and if they had wanted to, they could have put the window down, once inside and I would have never known how the got into my house. So, it is possible for someone to get into a trailer and no one know how they may have gotten in.

    26. D.Schmier on February 16th, 2009 10:37 am

      Hey, they need to remove that guys plumbing if he is guilty…I think it should be a standing law to do this whenever a crime like this occurs.

    28. Rich on February 16th, 2009 11:31 am

      Given the facts currently being published, it’s a huge jump to even remotely attempt to connect Chad to Haleigh.

      The abandon car was found on US 441 in the opposite direction of where Haleigh lives.
      From hwy 441 (at Sumter county line) would be well over a two hour drive to Satsuma, FL.
      There is no “direct” route from where Chad was last reported to be, to where Haleigh lives.

      Unless Chad had friends or relatives in the community where Haleigh lives (and is familiar with the area), it would be extremely unlikely he would even know where Green Lane is.

      In most cases, when a child is abducted from their home, it is done by someone familiar with the area of the residence and is aware the child lives there.

    29. Paltakian on February 16th, 2009 11:46 am

      I found out that Chads’Grandparents live on Cresent Lake in Crescent City. You can do a google map from Haleigh’s house & follow the little tributes to Cresent lake without any problems. I will not give names of grandparents or 911 address.. THE LOCAL SHERIFFS OFFICE ARE AWARE OF THIS INFO!!
      I pray in Messiyahs Name, Father I ask that she is safe and not harmed in anyway, physically or mentally & to be at home soon, Your son is the Lilly of the Valley & Salvation for us all!! I ask this in Messiyahs Name, Amen!!!!!

    30. Maggie on February 16th, 2009 11:58 am

      Rich , I agree… haven’t seen anything yet to link him to Haleigh.. and haven’t seen anything that makes me believe the father and 17 year old gf had anything to do with her disappearance so far. It sounds like someone knew the area and the house, knew the father was gone nights..maybe watching, could be a relative..friend or neighbor.. does sound like a pedophile..

      Not defending Chad..or ruling him out, just haven’t seen a connection. I think they should all be sent to an island anyway..they can’t be cured, yet we keep putting them out among children…

      If he shot the windows out on a PT Cruiser that
      would be entirely acceptable to me. LOL :)

      I am pretty sure you were kidding.

      …but he was definitely talking about shooting
      out the back of a police cruiser window when
      they caught the suspect. It is in the police
      report from night 1.

    32. HOPE on February 16th, 2009 1:29 pm


      I got the feeling that abuse may have been going on for some time. That’s why I asked if there were more photographs. This child in this picture is indicative of being abused before, IMO. I too, am not surprised that the father knows who may have done this. Sometimes, people like that stand out as the type of guy who would do that, even though you have no proof. There’s nothing wrong with him listening to his instinct and I appreciate his love for his daughter because I’d want to kill him, too.

      But, using a brick to keep the door open sounds more like someone would do if they were carrying something in or out of the door. I haven’t read much about the case, honestly. I haven’t had the time.

      BTW – Thank you for the complement. I just want you to know I have the same desires, aspirations and dreams as everyone else. ;)

      #15- Hi, Hope—

      Well you go right ahead and breathe all you want. Please don’t paint me as the bad guy just because I agreed with some other posters on here about you going on and on about religion.

      I’m happy you pray and that you believe in God, so don’t I. I just don’t post about it continually and in great length in every post. Plus, that Arawack stuff on NH was just plain whack, Girl, I am sorry. JMO

      Peace to all who Enter Here-

      New Girl from Boston =)

    35. HOPE on February 16th, 2009 2:34 pm

      New Girl?

      It may be whack to you. But to say that there are no Arawaks that do these things is being naive… and human trafficking? How do you think they get these virgins to feed to their gods? But, more importantly, was the manner of death the reason why the body at the rocks was covered, denied and disappeared? And, if manner of death is what it appeared to be, how many others were sacrificed that night and how often is this ritual performed?

      Do you think the Slaying of the Dragon was, mere, coincidence? I don’t. I think there is a Great Dragon that has a multitude of people in its clutches. But, I think Natalee was marketed; while the girl at the rocks was meant to look like Natalee. I think Shango knows alot about human trafficking than people give him credit for. Secret caves, corridors connecting to the red light district and leading out to the sea. I also believe there was a jet that sat on the runway for two days waiting for Natalee to come out of drug rehab… but, not one that was hired by her parents.

      And… yes, I believe that Paulus is a big time operator in the marketing of human beings. There are plenty who think otherwise, as they are the most vocal. I would pray that the final concensus is not that I’ve lost my mind, because I have put a lot of energy into my research as has the State Department.

    36. Patti on February 16th, 2009 2:39 pm

      Slay the dragon, New Girl!

    37. HOPE on February 16th, 2009 3:00 pm


      That is why it’s important to plea with the United Nations. This is an international crime that is being committed day-in and day-out in magnitude proportions. Children are being snatched from the arms of their mothers to be fed to the Lion, as Shango referred to him… and beautiful women, like Natalee, are being sold into slavery.

      800,000 people disappear every year, mostly women and children.

      It’s time to Slay the Dragon!

      New Girl:

      I’m not perfect. Never have been. But, I did do the research on the Arawak Indian. If you recall it was Prime Minister Nelson Oduber who stated he was proud to be an Arawak. Whether that has anything to do with Natalee’s disappearance, I don’t know. But, you can rest assured that it has a lot to do with the human marketing that is a major problem on the island of Aruba.

      Aruba… Boycott!

      ======This child in this picture is indicative of being abused before, IMO.=======

      Wow. What amazing abilities you have. Do you work for LE? I mean, anyone who can look at a school picture and see abuse when others see a cute little girl has to have some kind high paying job with LE.

      And as with any secret society, it’s result is corruption. 8)



      Please, bring Haleigh home.

      Through Christ we pray…

      Thanks for that bit of info glad the police KNOW this information–we don’t know what the clues are they are following.
      One question anyone–Did they ever withdraw and cease to search for Caylee? I can’t recall with all the daily drama there for awhile. Is there a ‘time frame’ when the police feel the search may be futile? Don’t they work on and follow up the leads at the same time? I can understand the dad’s anguish –we as a Nation are praying for her safe return but sadly it doesn’t look like it will end that way.

      #35- Hope—

      Shango is legit. So is most of what you say about Paulus VDS, human trafficking, the corruption on that Island. Please know I do not doubt much or any of what you post regarding NH & the Aruba situation, I know you have spent a lot of energy and time researching it.

      I believe you heart is always in the right place, and that is so much better than many others have to offer….so for that—I’m thankful.

      We make it such a point to make these predators knowin which we should. You can go to any megan law web site and get addresses make of car and even work area. He could of been preyed apon and made a scape goat. Just saying he went missing to early. looks fishy

      What about his top song on his playlist..If pictures were updated on the 15th, playlist also could of been updated afterwards. Isnt there a way to “hide” your last login? Not that I am wanting this young man to be crucified or anything. I just want every possible thing done to find Haleigh..What is it with Florida and all the missing kids???And if he is a regisitered child offender, why is he on myspace anyway?

    48. HOPE on February 17th, 2009 9:21 pm

      Why is there all this coverage about the Anthonys and no coverage on this case? This child doesn’t look anything like that school picture… do LE have a suspect, or what?


      Who is Crystal Sheffield?

    49. Carpe on February 17th, 2009 10:30 pm

      Hope -

      Crystal Sheffield is Haliegh’s mom and
      Ronald Cummings is the dad.

      Two new developments from the NG show tonight.

      1. Law enforcement says out of the 1200 tips
      they now have – One of the tips claim that
      Misty Croslin (Ron’s shack-up) left the home
      at some point during the night Haliegh went

      2. Haliegh is not wearing the pink shirt that
      she was reported to have had on. Police now have that shirt in their possession, but will not
      elaborate further on where, when, and how they
      found it.

    50. HOPE on February 17th, 2009 11:36 pm

      Thanks, Carpe

      It doesn’t sound good, does it? :(


      It’s nice having you back. ;)

      Interesting stuff…

    52. Carpe on February 18th, 2009 8:47 am

      I keep going over the 911 calls.

      Again, I am struck by how odd it all sounds.

      Operator asks Misty

      911:” OK sir let me just talk to your wife. Let me get some information from her. ”

      Misty: (inaudible) crying. “I don’t wanna…(inaudible)”

      ( she doesn’t want the phone back to talk to 911 )

      911: “Can I talk to her? OK”

      Misty: “inaudible”

      Cummings: (inaudible, in background ) “Where my daughter at?”

      911:” Ma’am. OK listen I need you to answer some questions. Does the door look like it was pried open?”

      Misty:” Umm… (inaudible)”

      911: “Does it look like you had to sorta…like someone tried to enter your house.”

      Misty: “Umm. Hold On.”

      911:” And another thing, make sure you and your husband don’t touch the door anymore. Don’t mess with the door or anything. ”

      Misty: “No it doesn’t. ”

      911: “it doesn’t look like it is?”

      Misty: “No”


      911: “Does it look like you had to sorta…like someone tried to enter your house.”

      Does it look like someone pried the door open?

      Misty: “No it doesn’t. ”

      911: “it doesn’t look like it is?”

      Misty: “No”

      Yet Ronald at this moment wants to kill a mysterious boogie man already.


      “When I find HIM, I’m going to kill him.”

      “Dumb b* … where my daughter at?”

      Ronald apparently knows more about what
      happened than Misty, at this point.

      So many things about the 911 call are wrong.

      Out of sequence.

      Also, Ronald has not had a chance to go through
      shock, fear and desperation yet.

      Anger & revenge come after all that.

      I don’t care who you are, what socio-economic
      class, or how effing flaming butt-out insipid
      you appear to be. It is a human thing.

      IMO the 911 calls are high-school drama play
      acting. Still not buyin’ what they’re sellin’.

    53. FlaNeighbor on February 18th, 2009 11:20 am

      Take a look at google maps. Chad Reynolds lived near the Ocala National Forest. Haleigh’s home was also near the Forest. I have been there many times. It is HUGE and very difficult to find persons in.

    54. tampa gurl on February 23rd, 2009 4:06 pm

      start things off i dont think her family knew anything but as for the 17 year old her father is dating , for 1 why the f*** is he with an under age gurl and for two she has gotten caught lying and twisting her statments yeah she says they passed the lie detector test but the cops arnt saying weather they did or not so 2 she is hoping they find her truthfull. what i think is her man left her to babysit the kids and then she thoughgt well f*** while she is sleeping ill go out and come home before he does thats what i think happend and i think she has responsibility over whats going on and as for the father he needs to find a gurl his own age. god save haighley from harm and we all pray for her. everyone at this time needs to keep her in your prayers she needs all the prayers and our support.

    56. mike on March 22nd, 2009 10:25 am

      I have to agree with carpe….Several years ago my son was about 3 years old, outsided in the neighborhood riding his tricycle I went to get him and he was gone. After frantically searching the area I found his trike setting at the corner and him no where to be found. He was inside another childs house getting a popcycle and every thing was ok.. My point though is I am as hotheaded as anyone with a jackass button with a sensitive switch and Anger didnt enter into the emotions that I was feeling…fear,sick at my stomach, my imagination at to all that could be so the statement that he made during the 911 call regarding what he would do to “him” is puzzling to say the least

    57. tampa gurl on March 25th, 2009 4:39 pm

      i agree they should be checking the route cummings takes to work but to be honest with this whole situation i wanna know why they get married now like it couldnt wait. and his wife is not cleared as a suspect either. its just funny how she was sleeping in the same room and didnt hear shit. i dont beleive her i think she has something to do with haily dissapearing maybe she has hard feelings towards haighleys real mom and she thought if the child is gone then the mother cant come around think about it i dunno its fishy

    58. Unknown on April 23rd, 2009 2:27 pm

      Based on the information given to the public the dad was at work. Why are people so out the get this father? What if he is innocent? What if Crystal Sheffield is an angry woman over her loss of custody who will say or do anything to get her children back? Why are people so quick to believe all she has to say? I read the court records and it is clear she has not been honest about why she lost custody. DCF said she has made false claims before. It also looks as if she lied in court about abuse and neglect and the judge new this.
      What if this man is innocent and besides his daughter being taken he also has to deal with media and an ex wife out to convict him? If Kim Picazio really cares about Junior and really believes half of what she has claimed why is she not in court? What about the fiance of Crystal and his violence on children orders in place over two years? How come nobody is looking at him?
      How attached was he to this child? How did he feel about his fiance being taken to court over child support? Having seizures when she got the notice? Why was he on camera laughing when LE was searching a dumpster for Haliegh? What is so funny to him? Why did it take Crystal and her family five hours to show up when Haleigh went missing? What was so important that they could not come straight away? Why from day one have they been pointing fingers at Misty, Ron and later a black man in black? Could this really be about custody? Could Crystal have found out about Misty and Greg and wanted to expose Misty in the media. If she did, why when Haleigh and finding her should be her number one concern? Why is Crystal more concerned with making the dad and Misty look bad? Could it be because that was the goal all along?

      I’m not too sure about the facts of this, so do correct me if I’m wrong, I’m not from America. If he was a registered sex offender then perhaps the fact that he had once commited a crime, served whatever amount of time the legal system required (or not – still it’s decision) but had still had a constant reminder of his crime attached to his name preventing him from living anywhere or working most places made him decide that there was no point in trying to conform to anything at all so he disappeared. We admire this Americans, The way you can make your sex offenders so depressed and unrehabilitable that they just (poof) vanish away from your sight. Some people think this is dangerous as they are lost track of but that’s silly because 99% of criminals in your country (drink drivers/wife beaters/white collar fraudsters/dog killers) walk around without people in the shops or new jobs knowing anything about their disregard for the law (1 in 32 people in US. are in trouble with legal system too!). No, carry on with this system I say. Soon, you won’t have any sex offenders walking the streets. You have plenty of violent criminals (check stats- anywhere) who can easily beat up and harrass these people into leaving so you should let them do it. Make heros of these bank robbers/street brawlers/adult rapists. That should rehabilitate a few of them. You could make statues of them. Good luck and I hope we get a similar system here soon. Bye.

    60. suspicious on February 24th, 2010 9:31 pm

      I have always thought there was a connection between Chad’s disappearance and Hayleigh’s.

      It is now February, 2010. Don’t the cops want to
      know where the missing sex offenders are?
