There is little to be happy about concerning the search for Haleigh Cummings. Five months have passed since she was reported missing, and all but a few journalists have moved on to other stories. A few of us through have kept the little girls picture in the limelight. TJ Hart of The Sky 97.3 and ourselves here at BNN have refused to let this story die.

I know that we likely have made few friends as a result, but we are determined to see this through to the conclusion, whatever that might be.

Fed up with the bickering and sideshows that follow this case like a rash, we decided to take a slightly different approach and try and focus on the core item, lets find this missing child. It looks like our positive pressure is finally paying some dividends. I have it on good authority that CNN’s Headline News will be airing a special segment at 5:10pm Eastern today. Although it is only a 10 minute slot, it looks like they are going to be broaching some key areas that many of the general public may not be aware of.

It seems that the local elected officials have been getting some mail and email from concerned citizens regarding the disappearance and seeming lack of progress by law enforcement.

Other items slated for discussion include the rather strange decision to cancel the 2nd FDLE Round Table, why was it canceled?

A new search has been requested for a property near where Haleigh was taken from.

Private investigator assembles new team and sends ground units to Tennessee to follow some leads that she may be living there

Is Law Enforcement urging family members NOT to talk to the press?

Clarification concerning who the lead investigator is?

Much of this news may not come as a surprise to BNN readers, or listeners to our weekly radio show, but it will come as a big surprise to the general public. Let us hope that with this burst of media interest we can look forward to a resolution of the Haleigh Cummings story.

For once I am happy to pen a Haleigh Cummings story. Keep up the great work everyone, and keep those letters flowing to Putnam County.

Update: Segment moved to 5:30 Eastern
