The search for missing Florida toddler Haleigh Cummings, who disappeared from her father’s mobile home more than a year ago, resumed again today.
Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is searching the St Johns River.
Since Haleigh disappeared in February 2009 from her home in Satsuma, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville, investigators have checked out thousands of leads and searched the rural area with dogs. They have previously searched other parts of the St Johns River.
Haleigh was reported missing by her father’s live-in girlfriend, Misty Croslin. She called 911 and told investigators that the child was missing when she awoke and found the back door propped open with a brick.
Croslin, 18, and Haleigh’s father, Ronald Cummings, 26, are in jail awaiting trial on a charge of trafficking in prescription pain-killers.
The pair married a few weeks after Haleigh’s disappearance and were divorced last fall. They were arrested in January in a drugs sting.
