also - police reports
Police should urgently request everyone and every business in the area
who has surveillance to review from that day/night and to SAVE it in
case it is needed for anything, whoever has her may have needed fuel,
etc. or fed her or something or she may how up in the video if she
wondered off. Also all surveillance from all medical and ER visits from
the past few months, if they were seeking drugs from the ER, the perp
could have also been there before to ensure their goods were
delivered. They should tell people this ASAP.
If she wondered off, she may have gotten lost and someone kept her or
fell in the water?? Did they scout the water completely?
What about letting children services assure whoever has her that they
will ensure she is in safe and in the best care - maybe someone took
her to protect her (in their mind) and they think if they return her
she will be uncared for, so why return her?? hum... Offer money or
something even to the perp - set up in an undisclosed location if they
drop her off freely... somehow...
Have they followed up on their email and computer history? Do either
of them have online profiles anywhere? Follow up with ALL those
contacts also... just some ideas if anyone there reads this. God Bless
and the family is in our prayers, they are all innocent until proven
guilty, so we have to treat them as such while still considering all
Follow the money, everyone in the situation and extend out from there
a bit, examine their banking and receipts from months back until now
and watch for anyone who may have set it up and "sold" her or traded
for drugs, etc...
Also, pull in ALL medical records for all involved - may show up
domestic issues or drug problems and those reports may state things
that were said, who was there and give more names and info. to
Also, maybe there was a drug accident in the home where the child
consumed some of them and over-dosed?

Mother of Ron's other child?
This is one of the possible relatives of Haleigh, possibly a maternal cousin:
Sapp, Donald Lee
possibly related in some way to Guy W. Sapp, Raymond Sapp, (which could make Donald related by marriage to Misty Croslin), and possibly related in some way to a Griffis (which could make Donald related by marriage as a maternal cousin to Haleigh Cummings). From Putnam, at one time lived in the same town as Haleigh's mother, Crystal, in Glenn Saint Mary, FL, has also lived in Mcclenny, FL, where some of Crystal's family is from/living. Donald moved to 315 2nd Ave, Satsuma, (which is 3.6 miles from the Cummings home). Is 315 2nd Ave. the same home as 315 Green Lane???? In doing public records search, 315 2nd Ave. comes up as being owned by and having been the residence of Jeffrey Michael Griffis and Billye Lee (Wager?) Griffis. (see http://www1.putnam-fl.com/live/papage.asp?id=8132 ). Jeffrey M. Griffis, age 29, was hit by a car on 1/7/2009 and died the next day. Donald Lee Sapp moved into Jeffrey and Billye's home a few weeks later on 1/26/2009. And a few weeks after that, Haleigh disappeared.
----> Registered Sex Offender, arrested on 6-12-1997 for lewd/lascivious assault on 14 yr old female, occuring in East Palatka. At the time he was already serving probation for a prev. charge of l/l assault on 13 yr old female runaway. In 2000 he was arrested for trying to set up a meeting with a 10 yr old female, on a sting with her father in an internet chatroom. Billye Lee Griffis had testified in Donald's trial in the 1990's. A Raymond Sapp contributed to bail in one of Donald's cases, and Donald is mentioned in Raymond obituary in 2005. Donald is/was married and has four children, according to Raymond Sapp's obituary.
Jeffrey M. Griffis and Billye Lee (Wager?) Griffis were married, filed for divorce back in October. But they were still living together on 1/5/2009 when Jeffrey and Billye filed for a domestic violence restraining order against Donald Lee Sapp, which was denied.
TWO DAYS LATER on 1/7/2009, Jeffrey, age 29, was hit by a car and died the next day.
A few weeks later, Donald Lee Sapp moved into Jeffrey and Billye's home, on 1/26/2009. Dunno what, if anything, Billye did, if she moved out or what.
A few weeks after that, Haleigh disappeared. "
