These are raw unedited reporters notes from TJ Hart:

Friday, I traveled to Putnam County, Florida like a I do so many days since 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings was taken from her Satsuma home on February 10, 2009.

This trip was a little different.

The toll this case has taken on me, my family and my friends was obvious. I was tired, angry and upset. My family’s last words to me out the door that morning were still ringing in my ears: “This is taking over your life: The mysterious calls in the middle of the night–the national TV–running to the radio station at all hours….we are worried!”

I know she’s right, but there is still a little girl who is missing and not a whole lot of people seem to care–including some members of her own family.

When I got to Palatka, I stopped by the hotel where private investigator/bondsman/surety agent William “Cobra” Staubs was staying.

The case had been tearing him up, too.

He is trying to move the investigation forward and find Haleigh, but there always seems to be a roadblock at every turn –sometimes it’s factions within a local law enforcement agency, sometimes it’s private citizens and sometimes it’s the criminal element who would very much like for Staub’s to leave their local “businesss operations” alone.

I told him I had an old video camera with me and thought that it would be a good idea if we talked about the investigation into Haleigh’s disappearance on tape with no edits. 

He agreed.

What you will see in this video is about 22:18 of a very candid conversation about the ups, the downs, the misconceptions and facts about Haleigh’s abduction and the way it has affected so many people.
