A lawyer for the mother of a missing Florida girl slammed the child’s father in an interview, saying the little girl was exposed to a "typical sex, drugs and rock-and-roll lifestyle" before she disappeared, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.
Haleigh Cummings, 5, vanished on Feb. 9 from the Satsuma-area trailer home where she lives with her 24-year-old father, Ronald Cummings, his 17-year-old wife Misty Croslin and Haleigh's little brother Ronald Junior, 4.
“The particular lifestyle that we believe is led by Misty and Ronald Cummings is one that essentially laid out the red carpet to something at some point happening to these children, and something did,” Kim Picazio, an attorney for Crystal Sheffield, said in an interview Wednesday with MyFOXOrlando.com.

She said Misty and Ronald Cummings lead "your typical sex, drugs and rock-and-roll lifestyle that is not conducive to raising children."
Meanwhile, the Florida Department of Children and Families is investigating instances of abuse and neglect at the Cummings household, according to MyFOXOrlando.com.
Ronald Cummings could not be reached for comment when called by the station. The family has reportedly been advised by legal counsel not to speak with the media. A call to Cummings’ lawyer also was not returned.
Although investigators have been following up on numerous tips and Haleigh sightings, the girl has not been found.Click here for more on this story from MyFOXOrlando.com.
