This just in from TJ Hart – Jan Barrett 

Much has happened since Haleigh Cummings vanished from her Satsuma home in February 2009 while in the care of her babysitter, Misty Croslin.

Here are just a few things that have happened since that day:

The issue raised recently by lawyers representing both Misty Croslin and Tommy Croslin where each stated a dispute over a machine precipitated the abduction of Haleigh Cummings by Misty and Tommy’s cousin Joe Overstreet from Tennessee.

Earlier reports of the inicident mentioned a gun, but not specifically machine gun.

Former private investigator Cobra Staubs recalls the incident (Listen).

Let’s go back to a televised press conference from firstcoastnews.com held by Ronald and his mother, Teresa Neves, nine days after Haleigh disappeared where Ronald pleads for the return of his daughter and plays down any notion that and argument took place about a gun:

The Night She Vanished

The evening February 9, 2009, then-5-year-old HaLeigh Cummings was seen for the last time by her babysitter-turned-stepmom-now ex-wife of her father, Misty Croslin, who was just 17 at the time.

Very little information about what happened  to HaLeigh and who might have taken her has been made public since the first 24 hours into the case despite the thousands of tips and numerous ground searches.

The original Putnam County incident report stated that deputies Nelson and Bridges arrived at the home of HaLeigh’s father , Ronald Cummings, at Hermit’s Cove in Satsuma, FL at approximately 3:40 a.m. February 10, 2009.  Deputy Nelson wrote in the report that Ronald was standing in the driveway and was visibly upset.

PCSO Original Incident Report

According to the report, Ronald stated that he had just come home from work and his “dumb bitch girlfriend” had told him that his daughter was missing.

Ronald told the deputy he did not know what she was wearing and that all he knew was that the back door was open. Ronald repeatedly said someone had taken his child and that “when I find him, I will kill him.”

At this point, some have to questioned if Ronald actually knew the gender of HaLeigh’s abductor or was just saying “him” referring to anyone.

Another part of the report does indicate that the babysitter Misty Croslin had taken the children out of the home in the past while sitting with them. When deputy Nelson asked her if she ever took the children for a walk, Misty stated that sometimes she took them for a walk to see her family.
