Missing Five Year Old Taken By Pedophile Family Acquaintance?

February 23, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – The family of missing five-year-old Haleigh Cummings have said that they are terrified that she may have been taken by the cousin of her father’s girlfriend, a convicted pedophile.

The man, whose name has not been released, is currently being questioned about the incident. Family says that he was visiting at the time of the disappearance.

“What we’ve been told is that he’s a sexual pedophile,” Teresa Neves, who is the missing girl’s grandmother, said. “I couldn’t tell you anything about him.”

The man was arrested by police and held for questioning, after an anonymous tip came in from a line in Tennessee, where the cousin is from. It said that a man was in a diner, with a child who looked like Haleigh, and that as they left he was trying to ‘shield her from view’.

Police admit that a sexual predator is in custody, and that a car was apprehended in the arrest, but they have given no further details.

The family have publicly pleaded for the safe return of the young girl.

“I want to say to my baby, we love you sweetheart, and we will find you,” Neves said at an emotional press conference.

Haleigh had been asleep in her room when she vanished without a trace.

    Well, common sense would say that something is quite mysterious here. I know that people do evil things like abduct children, but all of a sudden after all this time why would someone just take this child in the middle of the night. If that is what happened then something was done to that child and she was going to tell so someone took her and got rid of her. Why didn’t they take the little boy too? That girlfriend knows something, she just aint saying it. The father I’m not so sure about. I don’t care what the lied detector said-somebody is lying! It’s a fishy cover up. I haven’t heard any reports as to the time line of this little girl. After she was playing at 5:30pm- what happened? When her dad went to work at 7pm where was she? What was going on in that house between 7pm and 3 am?

    Scenario #1- Someone molested the child and she was going to tell, so they got rid of her

    Scenario #2- She was already murdered and they had to come up with a story or alibi before they called the police.

    Scenrio #3- Misty the girlfriend left her in the care of a pedophile and he took advantage of the child and it killed or injured her so he ran off to Tennesse with her.

    Everybody and their mama’s know that something is wrong here, the truth will come out.
