Haleigh Cummings still missing 10 years later

By  | 

PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) -- Haleigh Cummings disappeared overnight from her home in Satsuma on February 10, 2009, with this past Sunday marking the 10-year anniversary of her disappearance.

The 5-year-old went missing while being watched at home by her father's 17-year-old girlfriend Misty Croslin.

A decade later, Croslin and Haleigh's father are both in jail on drug charges, and Haleigh remains missing.

"Somebody knows, the important thing is that somebody does know," said Chief of Detectives Dominic Piscitello, PCSO. "Someone knows some information. And if you heard it from a loved one, or you heard it from someone that potentially said they did it, or the person that did take Haleigh, needs to come forward and speak to us."

Piscitello was appointed to Haleigh's case when she first disappeared. He said that PCSO continues to look for leads in the case, and that there's still a piece missing to the story.

Haleigh's disappearance drew national attention in 2009 as detectives scoured Northeast Florida looking for the young girl. The search involved different agencies, with Putnam County Sheriff's deputies diving the St. Johns River and combing through brush and forests.

Piscitello said PCSO is now using new technology in the case to show what Haleigh would look like a decade after her disappearance.

If you have any information about Haleigh's disappearance, reach out to Putnam County Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers.
