Finally Some Action in Haleigh Cummings Missing Person Case … Police Search Digs Up Grandmothers Home … Animal Remains Found

After being missing for over 4 months, police search the property of 5 year old Haleigh Haleigh Cummings3Cumming’s grandmother. For their effort the police found only animal remains after digging up the property and providing searches of the water. Of course one would have to ask the question after all this time and over 4000 tips, why know is the grandmother’s yard searched now? There has been so little movement in this case recently, one does really wonder why do this search now.

VIDEO of the search can be seen HERE. The land and water on the property was searched.

“[The search] was initiated because we did a interview with some family members … and during the interview they wanted to make sure we understood that they had buried some animals here during the investigation,” Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Dominick Piscatello said. “With that said, we couldn’t leave any stones unturned.”

Some 40 people, including divers and members Florida’s Department of Law Enforcement, Baker County and Putnam County sheriffs offices, with the help of cadaver dogs, searched the 30-acre Glen St. Mary home of Haleigh’s grandmother, Marie Griffis.

The little girl’s mother, Crystal Sheffield, also lives there.

5 year old Haligh Cummings has been missing since February 10, 2009 when she was reported missing from her home when she was in the care of her then father’s 17 year old girlfrined, now wife, Misty Croslin.

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.

Amber Alert, Missing 5 year Old Haleigh Cummings, Satsuma Florida … UPDATE

Haleigh Cummings, 5, was abducted from her home in the evening hours of February 10. She was in the care of her Father’s 17 year old girlfriend, Misty Croslin while he was at work at his job as a crane operator in Patalak, FL.  Mr. Cummings has taken a polygraph and has stated he has been cleared of involvement in his daughter’s disappearance. Cummings girlfriend has allegedly taken 2 polygraph tests by her own admission; although the reason she was administered 2 is unknown.  According to Cummings:

“We have all offered to take lie detectors,” Cummings said of his family. He said “there was no reason to believe that he or his girlfriend failed them.”

Misty Croslin’s account of the evening of February 10 has come under intense scrutiny as it has changed several times to include other house guests and where both children were sleeping at the time.

Sheriff Jeff Hardy said Croslin took the test, but he would not discuss outcomes of any polygraphs.  “Misty has been interviewed extensively,” Hardy said.

A review of available court records shows there is prior drug usage by both of Haleigh’s parents and seemed to be a significant factor in Mr. Cummings receiving primary custody of his two children.

There are 44 Registered Sex Offenders within a 5 mile radius of the Cummings mobile home on Green Lane in Satsuma, Putnam County.

Recently, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced it may have to cut it’s Amber Alert and Registered Sex Offender Notification Programs due to requested budget cuts.

“We’ve lost 56 positions in the last year, and we know any additional cuts are going to be in our  key service area,” FDLE spokeswoman Heather Smith told WOKV. “Anything beyond this point is  certainly going to have an effect on public safety.”

It seems in case after case we read how shocked people are when they review the registered sex offender listings in their area. WHY? As parents why don’t you know if your child is at risk?

It is required by law to have an online and searchable registered sex offender for each state.
The state by state listing is featured on the FBI website here.

The Dru Sodjin National Sex Offender Registry site is here.

For our children’s sake, as unpleasant as it is, take the time to search your area, review the pictures of the offenders and register for alert updates for anyone coming out of corrections or moving to your area. It is the best way to protect your children and minimize the risk to them.
