More information has come into the 97.3 The Sky’s news room regarding a possible missed clue in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings.

As it turns out, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office investigated the claim that very day the tape you heard in Part 1 was recorded which was March 31, 2009.

The claims made by Misty Saunders to Private Investigator William “Cobra” Staubs indicated she believed her step father, accused capital sex offender Daniel Snodgrass, had something to do with Haleigh Cummings disappearance. Saunders believes Snodgrass might have dismembered and killed children in a shed on the property owned by her mother.

Sources close to the investigation reported to the Sky under the condition of anonymity Monday that “Putnam County investigators looked into this claim and there was nothing to it. They did not find any evidence to indicate that Mr. Snodgrass had anything to do with this. Deputies looked at him as with many other offenders, and didn’t find anything there.”

These same source also say the investigation into the shed and its findings of blood splatters were consistent with that of someone who brought in hunted animals to the shed to clean like deer or wild turkeys.

The tools found in the shed were also consistent with the cleaning of dead animals.

In a later conversation with Staubs Monday, he stated he was present when sheriff’s deputies arrived and swabbed the sheds. He claims he asked for a more detailed search.

As each investigator reviews the clues and interviews in Haleigh’s abduction, there is that hope that something new will pop and the child will be found. However, this appears this is another dead end in long the search for Haleigh.

Haleigh is described as a now 6-year-old white female. She is approximately 3’0, 39 lbs, blonde hair & brown eyes. Unknown clothing description.

Haleigh was last seen at her residence in the Hermit’s Cove area of Putnam County on February 9, 2009 between the hours of 8-10pm.

A statewide Amber Alert has been issued. An additional $30,000 in rewards have been posted.
