Police Search for Woman Who Left Tip on Missing Florida Girl Haleigh Cummings

Police are working to identify a blonde woman captured on surveillance video at a local newspaper who said she was dropping off a lead about missing Florida girl Haleigh Cummings.

The woman, seen wearing sunglasses and blue hospital scrubs, can be seen leaving an envelope at the reception desk of The St. Augustine Record on Wednesday, the paper reported.

St. Augustine Record editors say she claimed the envelope contained information about 5-year-old Haleigh, who disappeared from her father's trailer on Feb. 9.

Police in Putnam County, Fla., are hoping that the woman can provide information on the girl, who police believe was abducted from her father's double-wide trailer in Putnam County, Fla.

Haleigh, the daughter of Ronald Cummings and Crystal Sheffield, is 3 feet tall with brown eyes and blonde hair.

She was at home with her 3-year-old brother Ronald Cummings Jr. and her father's then-girlfriend Misty Croslin on the night she disappeared.

Authorities first learned of Haleigh's disappearance in a 911 call from Croslin, 17. She told investigators Haleigh was missing when she awoke at about 3 a.m. and noticed the back door was propped open with a brick.

Cummings, who worked a night shift at a bridge manufacturing company, arrived home about that time.

Croslin has been under suspicion in the case after allegedly failing lie detector tests, but has not been charged.

Police have searched thousands of acres on foot, from the air and on horseback. They also have followed hundreds of leads and a $35,000 reward has been offered in the case.
