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.

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

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.

It was a sad search for Caylee today! :(

So I went searching for Caylee today and it was very discouraging. There were soo many swampy areas where you could easily have hidden something and even though water had receded- the vegetation was just so thick- you couldn’t even see the ground. 😦

It was so exciting at first to turn down the street and see that long line of brake lights lighting up the lane backed up almost all the way to the light. So many cars that traffic was jammed up just trying to coordinate parking and already a huge field is so filled w/cars they’re spilling into the ditches.

I still haven’t heard what the turn out was but it seemed massive and (I hate to say it but) actually a bit disorganized. We got there at 8AM and didn’t get out to start searching till about 10AM. I met Leonard Padilla and Rob Dick– they were so nice- they gave me their business cards-they’re like baseball trading cards- cute. I will scan them later and post- I’m too exhausted now. I’m going to try to set up an interview w/them before they leave. They said they’d be willing to so…keep your fingers crossed for me. Oh, I also met Murt- soo cool! He’s going to grant me a sit down too! So I’ll shoot the video and post here next week. If you have any questions you’d like to ask– let me know!

Mark Nejame was there- I saw him wandering about. I did actually feel really sad for the Anthony’s all day. No matter what they’ve done — and granted, they have some real likability issues — just try to put yourself in their shoes today. At any moment the TV stations could break in and announce that the remains of a child were found. Actual identification will take a while but that’s not sweetening the deal IMO.

So thousands of people have turned up w/large sticks in order to poke at the ground while looking for your precious grand daughter’s remains..they’re organizing the areas based on your daughter’s cell phone activity in the area and BONUS most of the thousands are convinced your daughter murdered your grand daughter! It’s unimaginable. Let’s all keep them in our thoughts and prayers– and Caylee most of all!!

I’m worried. I’m worried we won’t find her and I’m worried that that will drive Cindy even further over the edge– she will be even more convinced that Casey’s tales are true! And that’s not doing anyone any good- especially Caylee. I’m convinced that Casey needs to have Cindy confront her – say I know she’s gone, I’ll believe it was an accident and I absolutely forgive you! Just tell us where she is!!

I’m not sure it would have any effect on Casey now but I think it might have in the beginning–before Baez began blowing sunshine up Casey’s ass. Instead– according to Casey in one of those first interviews – I think it was the one at Universal? Casey says something like– My mom already said that she could NEVER forgive me and you know what I could never forgive myself…something like that. I’ll look for the link. Instead, Cindy extracted an iron clad promise from Casey — that she would NEVER put them through this torture— so now Casey has NO incentive to tell. There’s nothing in it for her except bad news- harsher sentence, zero family and BONUS the whole world gets to say I TOLD YOU SO— We knew you were a SPITEFUL (murdering) B!TCH!

So what do you think?

Tot Mom No longer Top Story on NG –Caylee Missing 19 wks Now! :(

Tot mom bombshells were not the lead tag on the Nancy Grace’s opening tonight. That’s the first time that I can recall that happening since…well, since I started watching this show anyway. I just found here that they’ve actually set a date for Casey’s trial- it’s February 9th, it will likely be relocated and it could last close to 2 weeks. I wonder where is will be? I will have to go – so hopefully it will be somewhere where I have friends or family.

They are talking about the tragic discovery of Jennifer Hudson’s nephew- found dead in an SUV, shortly after 7AM today. There are no suspects in custody right now. The 7 year old, Julian King was missing since the home invasion, last week, during which Jennifer’s mother and brother were killed. My thoughts and prayers are w/Jennifer and her family.

I can’t get involved in this tragedy when the other (Caylee) is so close to home, so unresolved and so mysterious/whacked out/crazy. I’ve been reading some about the FBI reports and there is MUCH speculation in the blogosphere as to their ultimate weight and the effect they’ll have at trial. Many are saying that they are light and use too much “inconclusive” language such as…”could be from” and “can’t be ruled out” — I think this is just typical sort of scientific speech and many are getting their panties in a wad for nothing. Let’s remember that they still call it the “theory” of evolution. There is much, much science to back it up and yet scientifically- that is still the correct terminology.

No one has visited Casey in jail yet- aside from her lawyers and their visits have been few and far between. I guess they feel like all of those marathon sessions in Jose’s office will suffice. Casey does not have to show up in court tomorrow for the scheduled arraignment, as she’s already entered a plea of not guilty. NG is breaking down the FBI results– the hair w/the death band belongs to either Casey or Caylee and Casey is not decomposed. That sounds pretty conclusive. I guess they are going to attack mitochondrial DNA– as being non-specific- it could also be Cindy or Lee. STILL there’s only one person from that group still dead. Kobi is saying there is still a statistical chance that the hair w/the death band matching Caylee belongs to someone else mDNA is not nearly as specific. That dog’s not gonna hunt at trial but it will sure be amusing to hear Jose or someone more competent spin it. There’s a statistical chance that I will win the lottery. BUT its not bloody likely!

Mark Klass is saying that this idea of a big search is half-baked. He’s saying that if 8,000 people come out for a search and Caylee is still not found by the trial date then that is going to be a major bonus for Casey at trial. Leonard is saying they are seeking bounty hunters, firefighters, law enforcement retirees and other people to be team leaders- they will then get some instruction from Equusearch and they are not worried about the potential for trampled evidence or mishandled remains and chain of custody concerns. I can see Mark’s point but I still think the search should go on. Casey is not going to talk and Caylee deserves to be found.

caller- Any idea if the car seen by the witnesses- was seen on the same day on the same road? We think they have it narrowed down to the same time period- the witnesses can’t pin down the exact dates. The guy from WDBO said they are NOT the same date. How does he know? Leonard Padilla just said he’s more concerned about the TARGET bag w/the two deodorants (I think he meant room deodorizers– like for her trunk that the dastardly squirrels ruined!) that were found wrapped up in a Target bag somewhere along the route that Casey frequented between Tony’s house and her parents. OMGWTF? Why does this person keep dropping bombshells out of no where. Its so incredibly annoying. I can’t believe he just brought that up at the end of the show and then it ended. He also casually mentioned that he thinks George Anthony KNEW that there was a body in the car on the 24th- the day of the infamous gas can incident. WTF?? NG doesn’t even call him out on that! She really needs to come out of her shell. Why does Leonard have so much information or seem to? Why does he keep dropping bits of info? Is there more to come? This case is making me crazy and I must do work to earn money!!

Oh no, how sad- the news anchor who was attacked in her home in Little Rock, Arkansas died. Anne Pressley died Saturday night in the hospital. Her parents plan to start a scholarship fund in her name and have released this statement –“Our lives will not be the same without her. We ask that you continue to pray for us as we struggle to move forward without our dear sweet daughter.” Let’s all send our thoughts and prayers to her family and other loved ones.

Oh no, a local anchor just got schooled by Joe Biden and now they’re persona non-grata w/the Obama campaign. While Elizabeth Hasselbeck (or whatever the anchorwoman’s name was) was clearly in the tank for McCain and really sounded like a middle schooler (or Jose Baez) w/her “attack” type questions- clearly worded as read from a McCain commercial transcript, RNC memo or FOX news talking sheet- Biden did a really good jog answering her questions- she just didn’t listen. I’m not sure they should have banned them– much the same way that Jose has but they did – I think they will just be more happy w/the extra attention this garners. They don’t care if you call them a tabloid station- as long as you’re talking about them.

The anchor actually asked this question:
“Are you forewarning Americans that nothing will be done and that America’s days as a leading power are over?” West asked. Biden stifled a laugh and then inquired jokingly as to authorship– she says she writes her own questions but is clear she lifts liberally from some far right wing nut balls!

Here’s what Obama’s camp had to say– “This campaign has now spanned 21 months and Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Joe and Jill Biden have done countless tough interviews and they’ve answered every single question. Let’s be clear: This station’s interview with Joe Biden wasn’t tough — it was just absurd.” I agree, but of course I’m clearly in the tank for Obama. I have read his plans and McCain’s in addition to seeing McCain’s record of voting 90% w/Bush, his anger problem and his absolute, total and complete -selling of his soul to get elected– w/his selection of Palin as a big, bright, shiny, you betcha, prime example of this. — see videos posted earlier! And here’s a funny INTERACTIVE site w/Palin as President. You click on different things in the picture and wait for the funny!

Casey Anthony (Chloroform Chloe) Cooked it up HERSELF (and I’m still watching Nancy Grace)! GRR!

I hate really dislike Casey! WFTV is reporting here that the chloroform searches on Casey’s computer were about how to make it not how to buy it. RIGHT around the time Caylee went missing. 😦 How the hell is she going to explain this?

If she made it rather than buying it I think it makes it even more suspicious. I was thinking she found it somewhere and could explain looking it up by saying she wanted to know what it was.

CH9 is saying it’s suspicious too bc there’s no purchase trail- she was trying to cover tracks. I can’t wait to see what Jose could possibly say to explain this that would make us all go AH HA- I see why Casey did all that. They said there was testimony about this at the Grand Jury that MAY be released soon. DON’T tease!! Is that true??

Jose will begin interviewing some of the prosecution’s witnesses next week. Wouldn’t you like to be a fly on the wall for that??

Maybe Casey thought if you just put chloroform on a rag in the trunk w/the child that it would just knock her out each time she woke up as opposed to holding it continually over someone’s mouth. Is she that stupid?

Great- Nancy Grace is going into incredible detail about how to make chloroform and how easy it is. I know the info is out there already but lets move on. I sure hope we don’t see copy cats- I’m glad that other guy just said- watch out- its also very volatile.

They just said that the Globe theorized pretty much what I just said about the chloroform rag NEAR the baby. I can’t believe I’m going to have to go buy that rag (mag) again AND People. This case is bringing me down! I usually just read those in the grocery line- its so embarrassing to purchase. When I purchased the globe last time I had to mention that I was only doing it due to my heinous obsession w/this case and it was funny bc the cashier and the lady behind me were like oh really- Caylee in Orlando??? They were not quite oblivious but my obsession was clear and present.

Where did Casey get the idea for chloroform? And what was her intent?? I wonder if there are further computer forensics searched from her computer that will reveal more. I need to know.

This distasteful pic was on the myspace page of one of Casey’s friends.

I think if someone w/half of Jose’s ego and twice his brain got a really good look at this case they would try to plead it down– she is so FU@KED! Of course I’ll probably be feeling the opposite tomorrow- panicked that she’s going to get away w/it. She’s making me crazy (these pretzels are making me thirsty) she’s driving me to drink!!

Leonard is saying again that they KNOW the child is dead- they’re just trying to make the most of it. He said basically that he overheard George telling an old cop friend (from Ohio) that he was tired of living a lie. NG stood up for the GPs- rightfully so- I think they may know the truth on some level– they are not pretending to be so self delusional— they ARE self delusional!! As another of NG’s guests said earlier- if they give up this hope then what are left with? No more beautiful grand daughter AND a (spiteful b!tch) daughter possibly facing the death penalty. Its so sad.

Kobi just said he doesn’t trusts the cadaver dogs. Silly man. I read an amazing article about those (type) dogs the other day. They were testing them on recently deceased bodies that had been put there for just 2 minutes in some cases and they had an amazing accuracy rate. (I will try to find the article to link.) He ought to try applying some of that same skepticism as to the truthfulness of his “client” — the one he’s being paid to consult for anyway.

Shiny shirt (its a peachy color tonight) is off on a tear about the stuff that Casey can order w/her commissary money- too funny. This is when I like Nancy- be snarky but be NICE!! 🙂 Wow- she WAS actually nice to one of the defense lawyers tonight! She understood he was just playing devil’s advocate– yeah, er- isn’t that WHY you have them on there? Play nice!

I’m going to go hunt that list down- its quite extensive. They may have even Target beat for bargains- though probably no fancy bras, no cases of bud light and thankfully no more big ugly white (stolen) sunglasses– oh that’s right– she will rarely see the sun. Snap! That’s really terrible to be gleeful about her suffering- I just want her to tell the truth!! And then I won’t be gleeful about her suffering anymore…I just won’t care.
