(WOFL FOX 35) - It has now been two years since Haleigh Cummings went missing. Investigators say she was kidnapped from her Satsuma home in Putnam County the night of February 9, 2009. She was 5-years-old at the time.
Haeligh's father, Ronald Cummings, was dating Misty Croslin at the time. Croslin says she put Haleigh to bed at around 7:30 at night, but when she went to check on her she says she was gone.
A massive search was conducted by police and an Amber Alert was issued but she was never found.
Two years later, investigators still don't know where Haleigh is, but they do think that Misty Croslin might know more than she's telling.
Both Croslin and Cummings are in priosn. In October Croslin was sentenced to 25 years in prison after entering a no-contest plea to a charge of trafficking in oxycodone, to be followed by 5 years of drug offender probation and payment of a $500,000 fine. Croslin was arrested in January 2010 following an undercover operation that resulted in five arrests.
Ronald Cummings was also charged in the same undercover sting and took a plea deal and agreed to a 15-year sentence. Cummings was also fined $250,000. As part of the plea agreement Cummings also agreed to testify for the state in future litigation involving his missing daughter.
