On the same day Florida deputies began searching a new area for missing Haleigh Cummings, the 5-year-old's father is expected to wed his 17-year-old girlfriend, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.

About 100 deputies from the Putnam County Sheriff's Office and nearby law enforcement agencies searched for the girl Thursday along U.S. 17, examining the area 30 yards from each side.

Sheriff's Capt. Dick Schauland said there is no new information — just more ground to cover.

Police deny the new search is linked to any new tips.

Haleigh vanished Feb. 9 from the Satsuma-area trailer home where she lives with her 24-year-old father, Ronald Cummings, his 17-year-old girlfriend Misty Croslin and Haleigh's little brother Junior, 4.

Cummings and Croslin applied for a marriage license in Palatka on Monday, but are having trouble finding someone to perform the ceremony.

A family member told a television station in Jacksonville, Fla., that the two were going to marry at 4 p.m. Thursday at Dunn's Creek Baptist Church in San Mateao, but the church denies it, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.

"Pastor Terry Wright is out of town and the other full time pastors (David Dixon & Chad Perry) are not performing a wedding today," the church said in a statement. "Please retract any announcements you have made regarding the Cummings/Croslin wedding taking place at Dunns Creek Baptist Church."

Their first plan was to have Janey Watt, a funeral director, marry them, but MyFOXOrlando.com reported his notary status had expired.
