This just in from TJ Hart of The Sky 97.3 – Simon

Update: At Noon Central TJ and I will be discussing the new developments, tune in here – Simon 

The father of missing 6-year-old Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma, Florida made his first television appearance since information was released last week that his new wife, Misty Croslin-Cummings– the last person to his child, failed an independent polygraph test that she requested to try to clear her name in the incident.

Ronald Cummings Sr. appeared on CNN Headline News Nancy Grace Show with his attorney Terry Schumaker, 97.3 The Sky’s TJ Hart and a panel of experts.

Ronald Cummings appeared to be torn at times between his desire to have his child found and to seemingly protect his young wife while answering some very pointed questions from host and former prosecuting attorney Nancy Grace. Cummings often shifted the attention away from his wife and redirected the focus to his missing daughter.

Grace then brought on several experts, including TJ Ward with the team assembled by Texas EquuSearch to perform the polygraph and voice stress analysis tests, to debate the merits of both tests before returning to Ronald Cummings for additional questions regarding Misty.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office has repeatedly stated that Misty Croslin-Cummings is not a suspect in Haleigh’s disappearance, but her stories about what happened the night Haleigh was taken from the home are inconsistent and do not always match up with the physical evidence.


Misty and Ronald Speak Out About Tests

First Coast News got this exclusive interview with Misty Croslin-Cummings and Ronald Cummings August 31, 2009.

In this videotaped interview, Misty and Ronald Cummings say they hoped Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch was going to help them find Haleigh Cummings, who disappeared in February.

Instead, they claim he took them out of town and tricked them the week of August 20th.

VIDEO Updated Haleigh Information

On Monday evening’s Nancy Grace Show on HLN, the father of missing Haleigh Cummings from Satsuma, Florida once again encouraged people to continue looking for the 6-year-old and report what they see or know to law enforcement.

Several times in the past while reporting on this story for CNN Headline New programs like Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and Prime News, I have given Haleigh’s physical description including a peanut shaped birthmark on her cheek.

Family and friend of Haleigh Cummings have asked me to place on our website an additional photo of Haleigh’s back where she has another birthmark.
