I received a tip about 30 minutes ago that might indicate the search for Haleigh Cummings may be entering into a new phase. Some discoveries were made last night and as we go to press police divers are about to go into action.
I have agreed not to divulge the exact location, however I am sure that it will be revealed later today.
Could this be the finish line in the 14 moth old search for Haleigh Cummings?
A source very close to the case has agreed to talk with me on the condition of anonymity and that I would not release details at this stage for fear of compromising the criminal investigation.
I am sorry this article is so cryptic, I will add more details as they are released.
UPDATE: This just in from PCSO.
The Putnam County Sheriffâ€™s Office has received numerous requests for information regarding the Haleigh Cummings investigation, and a search currently being conducted by the Sheriffâ€™s Office.
A search is currently being conducted as the result of one of the many leads received thus far in this case. The area being searched is in the Satsuma area of Putnam County. The exact location is not being released at this time in an attempt to prevent unnecessary congestion from onlookers. Although various resources are being utilized to conduct this search, it is just one of many operations conducted during this investigation. Due to the sensitivity of this investigation, the name of the person providing the tip and the physical evidence alleged to be in this area, will not be released.
