5 year old Haleigh stolen in the middle of the night.

Haleigh "Doodlebug" Cummings

Anyone with information about Haleigh’s whereabouts is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 386-329-0808.

Haleigh Cummings is missing from Satsuma in Putnam County, Florida. She was last seen when put to bed Monday night at 10pm- wearing a pink shirt and her underwear. She has blond hair and brown eyes, she’s 3 feet tall and weighs about 39 pounds. Haleigh’s father was working a night shift and his live in girlfriend put Haleigh to bed. When she went to check on her shortly before her dad was to arrive home- she was panicked to find the child missing. When Ronald Cummings, her father, came home he found the back door to the mobile home open and he immediately called 911. Ronald said his daughter, nicknamed Doodlebug, is afraid of the dark and would not have wandered off in the night.

The case was just classified as a stranger abduction today even though an amber alert had been immediately issued. It seems the authorities were initially investigating the potential for a family custodial dispute type abduction. But as of today- its been ramped up and the search for this little girl is massive. Tim Miller, the founder of Texas EquuSearch, has been in contact with Putnam County officials and said volunteers are on the way. What a hero! Some volunteers may drive and others may fly to Florida today or tomorrow, he said. Another excellent searcher and apparent advocate for missing children, bounty hunter Leonard Padilla is also rushing to help. He and his nephew bounty hunter Rob Dick are planning to drive the 80 miles north, where a command center has been set up to search for the missing girl.

There are more than 40 registered sexual offenders in the area. Yuck. Her father said on the 911 call- I hope you find whoever did this before me, bc if I find him I will kill him and spend the rest of my life in jail. Here’s a great site where you can type in your address and find out the number of scumbags living near you. They are color coded w/the red ones (which sadly seem to be the most plentiful) being the ones denoting sex offense against a child.

Investigators seem to be really interested in the crawl space under the house. I wonder if someone had been watching and hiding there? Search dogs are combing through woods in the area, and divers are searching the nearby St. Johns River.

Officials said Haleigh’s mother, Crystal Sheffield, 23, was in Baker County near the Florida-Georgia state line at the time of her daughter’s disappearance. Everyone is cooperating w/authorities and though custody has been contentious in the past authorities are not treating this as a custodial abduction– a stranger apparently came into the home in the middle of the night and just took the child.

Casey’s car being inspected by Dr. Henry Lee.

So I guess Dr. Lee is part of the defense team now. They were allowed to take pictures but were not able to touch anything. They had access to the forensic tests but were not allowed to do their own testing. WFTV is reporting. They said that the car still smells of death. Dr. Lee was the one who spit ketchup in the courtroom to demonstrate blood spatter in the Michael Peterson trial— the staircase murder.

Also, bonus– Jose and Casey are actually counter suing Zenaida Gonzales saying that her suit against Casey for defamation of character is frivolous and publicity seeking and that Zenaida is just after the money. Link.

Leonard Padilla and the Blackwater Divers were searching the Econ River all day again today. They will not search this wkd bc the park is usually really busy over the wkd. It is said that they are expected to return Monday. Leonard will likely be in town another week– he still has to take the polygraph that OCSO has asked for. I guess they are accusing him of planting evidence in the case. I think that’s ridiculous– that bag had obviously been in there for a long time and what would Leonard have to gain from that?

Shamrock charm- pic of Casey– Cindy and George on Nancy tomorrow–WTF?.

Here’s a picture someone found of Casey wearing a Shamrock charm— I don’t think its similar to the one that was found in the Econ River today- but she’s wearing a shamrock and the picture makes her look appropriately evil. OK– Murt just confirmed that the shamrock found in the bag WAS similar to the one in this picture– It looks like a match in his words!!

Casey wearing a Shamrock Charm.

Casey wearing a Shamrock Charm.

Cindy says about the bag discovered — until I hear from authorities that its Caylee they found- its just a bag of…whatever. I’m sorry, but how could you not just be home curled up in a ball– worrying that they are going to find your precious Caylee. She is so far in denial– I just can’t understand it. You don’t KNOW where she is so wouldn’t you be terrified and just on pins and needles all day?? I know that I was and I’m not related!

How do they know that Caylee wasn’t killed by a kidnapper IF there was one? They DON’T know that– Casey was supposedly so terrified that she didn’t call authorities– why is she convinced that Caylee is safe w/these people now? It just doesn’t make any sense and I hope that Nancy– when she interviews George and Cindy Anthony tomorrow– asks them the important questions. Like, why haven’t you released a sketch?? The toddler is not traveling alone– WHO was Caylee last seen with? IF your daughter is to be believed AT ALL then she dropped Caylee w/someone she knew– let’s have a description– they didn’t travel around w/invisibility.

Also, pls ask, — WHY haven’t you guys ever ONCE looked into the camera and spoken to Caylee or her kidnappers? I have NEVER seen them say– Caylee honey, we love you and we are looking for you…we want you to come home! OR – Pls whoever has Caylee- pls let her come home to us– we love her and can’t go on w/out her. Pls drop her off at a fire station or where ever– we will forgive you –we just want Caylee home. They could even go so far as to give them an out like…we don’t care if there was something that Casey was involved in and you are or thought you were protecting Caylee or Casey from something— we DON’T CARE– just bring Caylee home and you will get the reward. We will make sure you do!! That’s just the least of what I would be doing.

Tim said some really ugly things about Leonard Padilla tonight (and previously) on Nancy Grace…I don’t even want to talk about it. But I don’t understand it. Why the mud slinging? Let’s search EVERYWHERE 50 times if we have to!! And btw Tim– would you have seen that bag full of bones and toys in the river w/your side sonar? I guess not.

I don’t understand how LE could dismiss it so quickly? Do they know something that lets them know she’s not in that river? And WHY can’t they just state definitively that Caylee is dead??? Why can’t they provide that closure? I think that everyone NEEDS to move on w/that information– to the common goal of finding out what happened to Caylee and lets bring that precious girl home!! Mad and sad.

Oh- I just wanted to post this too bc its seems so appropriate. Reportedly, Casey was out of her cell for her one hour of the day and was able to see the TV of the diver’s recovery–BEFORE it was known to be unrelated to the case!! And her reaction? …was Nil nada nothing– she just turned around and wen back in her cell. What does that mean? She’s so psycho its hard to say but it makes me think she knows they won’t find her there and I’m worried more than ever that she put her in a dumpster. THAT is why she is so ADAMANT that she doesn’t know where she is…she could be anywhere in that landfill and Casey probably could pass that question on a poly— I don’t know where she is!!! So, anyway, this was on her computer– she saved it for her facebook or myspace– the file was last accessed on 7/11– just a few days before the fit hit the shan!

Words of comfort for Casey?

Leonard Padilla just got into Orange County Sheriff’s Car.

He got into the front seat. It appears as if he is just filling out a witness statement. But people were applauding for some reason when he got into the car.

OCSO stated earlier today that they wanted him to take a polygraph. He agreed and when reporters asked if he was insulted he said– absolutely not. OCSO did take those bone fragments into evidence but said that they don’t believe its related to the Caylee case. Its typical to have to fill out a statement when you call LE out to the scene. The car is pulling away– I think just to get away from reporters.

Reporters found Cindy Anthony earlier today and told her about the bag of bones found…she had no reaction. She laughed and said Caylee never had a clover toy — Casey liked clovers. I think she was somewhere w/KidFinders soliciting funds for their “search” for Caylee. When they later went back and told her OCSO said that the bones were not related– still no reaction. She just said I’m not concerned about what they’re doing out there I’m concerned about what we’re doing here and the people need to keep Caylee’s picture out there and look for her at Kmart or McDonalds or the grocery store etc. Supposedly today the latest Caylee sighting fueling her denial was a sighting at a McDonald’s in Coral Springs. The toddler was w/a man and they got the tag number so authorities are investigating.

They’ve already issued a press release OCSO has, saying the find was not related to the case. I wonder how they can be so confident so quickly? They issued it but haven’t posted it to their Caylee update site though.

Here’s a live update from the Sheriff’s Office. I’ll summarize as I watch. Apparently OCSO is a bit miffed that the media was notified so contemporaneously along w/Law Enforcement– that’s actually what he said. He’s not really saying why they want Leonard to take a poly. The media was already there– they saw something happen– they weren’t notified and then arrived on the scene. He says their forensic investigator saw no bones and OCSO did NOT retain any of that evidence. OCSO is saying that park belongs to Orange County– it sounds like they may want to kick Leonard out of the park.

Dive Team Searching the Econ again for Caylee!

I just heard from Murt’s site that they are roping the area of the river near the culvert off bc they are pulling something out of the water. I don’t know what it is and I’m sure if it was something important Law Enforcement would be called.

Earlier there was a shamrock toy found in the river. Casey has a shamrock tattoo and there was a shamrock sticker on the back of her car. WFTV is reporting that it was a bag of toys? I’ll update when I hear.

Leonard Padilla is still determined to find Caylee in the Econ River at Jay Blanchard Park. He contacted Black Water Divers who agreed to come out and search today. They expect up to 40 divers and plan to search all day hoping to cover up to a mile of the river. So far there are about a dozen divers in the water and more are coming in.

Someone from the FL Wildlife Fish and Game Commission is coming out to consult as to reports of Turkey Buzzards who were swarming a certain area yesterday. The speculation (disgusting as it is) is that the divers stirred something up and the birds were feeding on it.

Murt of MurtWitnessOne is on the scene and you can get a live peek at the activity here. He’s been hacked so you’ll have to go to the chat and then read instructions — I think you have to open a separate window for video.

Reverend Grund led Prayer Service for Caylee today.

Left behind for Caylee at Jay Blanchard Park.

Here for Caylee at Jay Blanchard Park.

Dozens of people gathered at Jay Blanchard Park this morning to pay tribute to Caylee Anthony. Bounty Hunter Leonard Padilla organized the service– originally calling it a memorial– he regrets that now and says it should have been called a prayer service. Cindy and George stormed on the scene and tried to stop it when they heard yesterday but they were nowhere in sight today.

Jesse’s father, Richard Grund, stood up on a picnic table in order to be heard and seen by the crowd while he said some loving words about Caylee. (Will post video later.) It was a nice tribute to Caylee– reminding everyone to take something positive away from this tragedy. Remember to shower the people you love w/love! I heard that (James Taylor below) song as I was pulling away and cried again.

I’m so sad for Caylee and I’m so discouraged that we didn’t find her. I’m bummin’ hard. Where’s Caylee?

Where's Caylee?

Where's Caylee?

Leonard Padilla was seen at the Anthony home tonight– awkward much? I wonder what he was doing there? I’m sure he will have BREAKING NEWS AND BOMBSHELLS tonight on Shiny Shirt (Nancy Grace) tonight. I suppose I will have to watch–grrr.
