Investigators were back out in Satsuma, Fla. looking for clues in the Haleigh Cummings investigation Tuesday. She’s the 5-year-old girl who disappeared from her bed in her father’s mobile home 14 months ago.

Sources told WFTV a suspect is in custody, but wouldn’t provide any additional details.

News Talk 97.3 the Sky is working hard to get confirmation on this claim. reports a break may have come in the case from Misty Croslin, who was with Haleigh and the youngster’s brother the evening before the kindergartner disappeared. Her attorney said Croslin, who is jailed on drug-trafficking charges, may have provided helpful information that led to other leads.”This latest search was based on information from someone else,” said attorney Robert Fields. He said Croslin may have “shed some light” on who was responsible.”Somebody else has possibly been implicated in this,” he said. “You need to look away from Misty.”

Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy spoke to members of the press Tuesday afternoon regarding the search for missing 6-year-old Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma around a boat ramp not far from her home where she was last seen February 9, 2009.

According to Hardy, Haleigh or her remains have not been found, but insists “the search will go on as long as it takes.”

Hardy stated that he had met with family members earlier on Tuesday, but declined to say what was discussed.

That search remains focused along the St. John’s River between Wellaka and Satsuma near County Road 309.

Several law enforcement boats have been scouring the river near the boat ramp at the end of Shell Harbor Road, which is blocked off by deputies.

This is an area that was searched about a year ago.
