Monday, August 17 is Haleigh Cummings 6th birthday. The Satsuma girl was abducted from her father Ronald Cummings’ home in Hermit’s Cove while in the care of her now-stepmother Misty Cummings.
Ronald, Misty and Haleigh’s brother, Ron Jr., now live with Ronald’s grandmother, Annette Sykes. In Sykes’ home is a wrapped gift and several stuffed animals waiting for for Haleigh when she returns.
Family members remain hopeful, but anxious. Annette Sykes told FirstCoast News this week, “It’s waiting, you know, everyday waiting. It’s waiting for somebody to say ‘we’ve got HaLeigh.’Â It’s like walking on egg shells all the time.”
Ronald Cummings rarely sleeps and has been losing weight, according to friends of the family.
Ronald has been the focus of a couple of recent disputes with members of his wife’s family. He was recently charges with burglary and assault or battery as the result of a fight in his grandmother’s front yard with his brother-in-law and father-in-law. His latest bout of trouble came when Cummings’ brother-in-law Hank Croslin Jr. accused him of placing a headless of a rat in his mailbaox.
Lt. Johnny Greenwood with the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office says law enforcement officials are wanting your information on this case. He says they are missing just one piece of this puzzle. All they want to do is bring HaLeigh Cummings home.
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office also confirmed earlier reports that an FDLE agent is now combing through all leads to make sure nothing is missed.
The Sky has also learned that Misty Croslin-Cummings was asked again to come in for re-questioning in the child’s disappearance. Misty now has an attorney and both have declined the request for futher questioning.
