Authorities Searching for Florida Girl Notified of Missing Sex Offender
Sunday, February 15, 2009 / FOX NEWS

Police searching for missing 5-year-old Haleigh Cummings were notified about a missing Florida sex offender, but stopped short of calling the man a suspect in the girl's disappearance, Ocala.com reports.

Chad Eugene Reynolds, 25, was last seen Feb. 1 leaving his mother's home in Ochlawaha, Fla. — about two hours from Haleigh's home — police said. He was reported missing on Feb. 4.

Reynolds reportedly borrowed a car from a friend and then later called to say the vehicle had broken down near the Marion/Lake County Lines, according to the Marion County Sheriff's Office. The car was located in an undisclosed location south of Marion County, but Reynolds was nowhere to be found.

Reynolds was sentenced in Putnum County — the same county where Haleigh was reported missing Feb. 10 — to seven years in prison for armed burglary and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12. The incident happened in September of 2002.

I think the law force & news should focus more on Haliegh than worrying about Casey Anthony trial..

i think it is pretty fucked up that they think the new step mom had somethin to do with it

to the anonymous person who quoted"i think its pretty F***ed up to think the new step mom had something to do w/ it"..please think.theres a 5 yr old girl missing from her home.she was THREE feet away from where they were sleeping,think about priorities here,is it more important to worry about looking at ALL the options and theories and FINDING out what really happened??as to why she may have disappeared?do you realize anonymous#2,that this has happened before?Id like to also mention,as i watched cnbc,this "step mom"was dancing and smiling 1 month to the day on her way out of court with marriage certificate...if my loves daughter had disappeared,theres NO way in HELL id ever be smiling til she was found.especially if i was the last one to SEE her.AND she DID NOT call the police when she discovered haleigh was missing at 3 am in the GD morning,THINK!!!!!

i think its messed up how the dad wants everything focused on his lil grl but yet he went out and got engaged and married of course i think that looks bad.. why would he do that and not wait till they found her because Misty keeps saying this is what she "would have" wanted. ok wouldn't Haliegh want to be at the wedding???

First of all if you look at these people you no there not educated and I'm not making fun of them all they have is each other. It is no ones business if they get married or not. I would focus more on Crystal Sheffield she is the one taking the spolight off that poor child, all of a sudden she has the nerve to start a custody battle but she was to messed up on drugs to show up to court the first three times. Then this Lawyer shows up out of the wood work looking for free publicity or is she just a man hater like Jane Velez Mitchell, both parents were working together to find their daughter and now the Lawyer makes sure that doesn't happen. I think the mother Ms Sheffiel is behind this some how and I hope they find the truth and most of all the child.

ronald needs to hire a private eye and investigate the bio mom more closely. her behavior is not normal. If her claims of abuse are true, then, she should be way more angry at ronald and new stepmom. But, her demeanor is always calm and cool. Could it be that she knows where her daughter is and she's waiting to join her when she gets custody of her son?

gator girl said...

why doesn't tv do more to enlighten the public about missing children? Their pix should be shown on all news programs every day all day until they are found. Any live program should show pix. Sporting events, etc. Why not pop ups on the internet with missing peoples faces? Somebody out there knows something about Haliegh but, they just dont realize it.

I do think that it was not in there best interest to go and get married.You should be more focused on Haleigh not yourselves! What is wrong with parents these days! There are too many selfish people out there raising kids. Grow up and be a responsible parent!!

Tornado said...

I have a feeling that someone accidently hurt her {girl friend or the cousin} and they dumped poor little Haliegh's body in a dumpster and she is in a landfill somewhere..... Didn't sniffing dogs lead police right to a dumpster.... I think that is where the police should be looking, even
though it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack now......

Why has this case gone cold? There have been no news reports on little Haleigh in over a month! She is still missing! No body has been recovered. I am sick over it! Poor baby out there and all some can focus on is Casey Anthony's trial! Sick! And getting married after your child has gone missing? Sick!

first of all halieghs real mom wasn't "too messed up" to show up to court dates, the papers were mailed to wrong addresses courtesy of ronald. second isn't it a bit hypocritical to call the bio mom a druggie when the bio dad himself had been arrested numerous times for drugs? come on people! someone knows more than their telling, which is obvious, but I dont think it's either of haliegh parents...I think it's the last person to see little haliegh, her new "step mommy"... they need to crack her to find the truth... and hopefully that poor little girl isn't in the st johns river bc they'll never find her then...

now daddy can be a witness 4 step mom now tat they are married! something is up wit that! i think the whole thing is messed up! they need to go after step mom now!

I can't imagine anyone propping my back door open with a concrete block..turning on the lights..coming within 3 feet of my bed take my baby..and leave without me hearing anything!!!

The law officers are working on the Casey Anthony Case yes but that is located in a different part of Florida. But honestly they do need to focus more on finding Haliegh than worring about what is going on with her bio mom. And her and her lawyer throwing out these child abuse photos that don't even look like abuse.

You could see and hear Dad's heart was ripped out. Did the step-mom know the sex offender? Law enforcment needs to find this man and question him about Haleigh.
I think the little girl heard someone at the door (perhaps he lied and said it was her Dad, and to unlock it for him) she may have unlocked it, and then he opened the door and grabbed her.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad they stopped the dwelling into the family's past and their personal life. This is about the little girl (the father tried everytime he spoke, to make them realize it was about Halieigh.) People seem to want to dig into any dirt they can find, than to find this poor innocent baby.

Anonymous said...

i think there should be more news coverage about this little girl.there still talking about caylee may she rest in peace but at least they found her.now find haliegh. i believe the new mommy knws alot......

Anonymous said...

I dont think chad reynolds is involved, its to far fetched . He lived two hours away, did he know people in the trailer park?? How would he know a small child was in the trailer ?? The stepmother laid right next to her, I think the suspects are the father and stepmother. Time will tell, I cant begin to imagine getting married when my small child was missing, they both know she is dead so he isnt worried about her location. His only fear is being caught

Anonymous said...

Misty knows more than she is telling. Cant believe they got married while Haliegh is missing.
Tell Nancy Grace we want more about Haliegh and less about Casey.

What I think happened is this.. Step Mom went out for the evening maybe even left cousin in charge after kids went to sleep I feel that its strange that she would wash a blanket and not the sheets and why wait to the last minute before she goes to sleep to wash the blanket. she washed the blanket because of what was on it. and where is the blanket she said was took with the other van? did they check that out? On her face, step moms is guilt. she knows something. I think she may have given her cold medicine or something to kncok her out for the night. I don;t beleive it was intentional. The fist instinct is to call 911 which she didnt. Maybe when she came home it was too late. Somehow I think an older man is involved somehow I dont know how but I see a man with balding hair assisting her somehow to get rid of the girl. thats what I think

We can be swayed by the media specifically Nancy Grace That Ronald Cummings should not have any blame......I don't think he personally did anything to his daughter but it's not secret he is a control freak controlling his women & heavily into drug dealing...Can we say what comes around goes around......hopefully Haliegh is alive & we all pray that....but botttom line she should be with a family that is safe. She was not in a safe environment to begin with.....so when they find her, do they return her to either parent until both sides get help??????Let's look into the people that Ronald Cummings made his enemies........check out www.artharris.com Regardless of the educational background of all those involved & the 17 year old "I need to have a Cigarette in my mouth syndrome" while on TV plus get married while my daughter has been kidnapped......and there is more to this picture than the public eye sees......I doubt they have to look much further than a county a way past their own back yard to find the answer......Caylee Anthony was just 15 houses away........and Miss Misty who has obviously been beaten by Ronald just like the ex-wife......does indeed know more.....she in a visious web and a catch 22 situation......No matter what she says,,,,,,,she will answer to Ronald or the police and either answer is tough for her.... If at present she is getting along with hubby.......why not tell him what he wants to hear...does she really have a choice?????? If you ask me, this is a case of vengeance......

Question to Ponder. If the shoe were on the other foot. Let's say your 5 year old was missing? WOuld you get married? That specific question is minor to this one.....Let's say the police are presently investigating every lead including the obvious when some of the players can't get their stories straight & act like they won the race just because they passed a lie detector test and could actually claim this without a cigarette in her mouth....anyways,,,,,if you were this parent, step parent, would you be sending death threats to people the police are questioning???????? Gee If I were the police,,,,,,,molestation is a probability but my focus would be more on focus on the family & who they may have made a bit angry.......

Anonymous said...

The comments on focusing on finding an innocent child is right; however, we the public need to call it like we see it! Bottom line the leads the police need to get are those leads that more than likely focus on the relationships the dad had......... find the drug deals he had that went bad and start there.....not a bad idea.....

Anonymous said...

Responding to Anonymous on when Ronald married and Miss Misty stating it's what Haliegh would have wanted!!!!!!!! Your question on U thinking Haliegh might have wanted to be there! High Five...you are right on target,,,,,Sounds like they have already given in that she may not be returned.....or better still if it were not a drug deal gone wrong....could there have been someone that knew the family that knew the trsh environment she was living in and perhaps taken the child to a better place in their own sick sort of way....Just a thought

Anonymous said...

To the person who was taking up for the new step mom with the potty mouth.....if the shoe fits wear it......Has she gotten her story straight yet???? Has she answered to the mystery man she was with that weekend with her friend Nae Nae and why is it that her family is giving death threats to the mystery man who incidently has the same criminal record the dad has????? Usually it does not take a rocket scientest to find holes in the story..and they began with Misty didn't they......afterall when she passed the lie detector which is often inadmiisanle in the courtroom...wow.......such sheer joy! and to be rewarded for this effort...matrimony to a known wifebeater...oh and girlfriend beater,,,,,,,, Yep......got to wonder??????? Gee a lot goes on in a trailer park...no i mean a tent !

Anonymous said...

I think the the bio mom might have something to do with it... expecially since here and her lawyer are throwing more into this case than anyone else. Just a thought.

wakeup said...

To the above Just a Thought..... What did u do? Just tune in???? Catch the tail end of an ok story????????Regardless of what side.....any no namer LAWYER wil get their face on the news for free publicity!!!!!!!!! and let's go figure...the mom (bio mom) not tot mom......didn't have Haliegh anyway......so let's get our brain cells working here.....Bio mom was like a once a month month more than likely......and it probably dawned on her.....that she does not want the same thing done to her son......With the way that dad lives his life......It sounds like revenge.....was in the picture.....and someone did this to get back at the dad!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't think it is f...ed up that that the new step Mom had something to do with it. Then how comes the girl kept changing her story several times to the authorities. What is she hiding or covering up????? These poor defenseless little children whom their trust is in their parents and end up getting hurt or killed. Prime example Casey Anthony and now another one in california. If you don't want your children there are plenty of people whom are willing to adopt cause they can't have children or love children. So, to all you baby killers hurt yourself and not the innocent!!!!!

have they found haliegh cummings yet??

Chris Walters said...

I also think Nancy Grace needs to give time to critical, on-going investigations like Haliegh Cummings. I've nearly stopped watching her for that reason. I don't want to dig into every detail of the families life, like the media did to the Anthony's, but I believe the police know more than they are saying, or I hope so. Blasting every detail on TV everyday is going to distract from the case and een desensatize poeple who could be in the jury.
P.S. They NEED to get the Real truth from Misty (17 year old "baby-sitter")
Thnx, ᔑᏫɳ Ꮻƒ ተ♄Ɛ ӄὶɳġ

Anonymous said...

I think Misty knows where the baby is and is afraid to tell Ron because she is afraid of him and don't want to lose him thats why they got married as if that will hold on to him. WHEN the truth comes out all hell will break loose. I can't believe what parents are doing to their kids now... There are good homes for these children if you don't want them "DON'T FREAKING KILL THEM"

Anonymous said...

i honestly think that something is up with the dad and girlfriend, i mean why else would they get married so soon after his daughter went missing, thats the last thing that would be on my mind, i couldnt eat sleep or think until i found my daughter.

so sad god pray for this little girl who is out there some where lonely for her family If you have children please don't let them out of your sight or trust anyone with your kids there are too many damn sickos out there :(:(:(

Anonymous said...

I have no respect for Nancy Grace anymore, she is dwelling on the Kaylee Anthony case and has been for months, the child has been found and the mother is in jail, WHY is she not dwelling on Haliegh??? She is still missing, and now a missing sex offender as well. I just dont get it, I have stopped watching her because the Anthony case is getting really boring.

Anonymous said...

I also think they need to quit giving air time to the anthony case and post more on haliegh.

Anonymous said...

As a mother myself, I truly feel for the child. My little one is @ home, safe. She's so little....I pray shes not suffering. This has only become a media frenzy...until something "bigger" came along.Remember "Conner" Peterson???? Or yes,even Caylee....I like to be informed of current events just like everyone else, but come on now...Too much press...Haliegh I believe angels are with you & God is the all knowing,& he will seek justice....God saved me from the depths of Hell & alcoholism.....

Krishna in Indiana said...

I would really like to know why the media has stopped reporting on this beautiful little girl. I could care less about what Casey Anthony ordered for dinner in jail. She is guilty, we know this, but there is still a little girl who needs to be brought home and no one is reporting on whether she has or hasn't. This is ludacris. As for the who done its, figure that out after they find her. Just find her. She is only 5. May god be with her til she is safe!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Just think,they got married so they would have to testify against each other in case they were charged with a crime.Haliegh rymes with Cayle? Could this be a copy cat crime?With all the money coming in for the Anthonys,this would buy a lot of drugs for the two of them.Also a lot of fake tears during this whole deal.I think they both know what is going on,and know a lot more than they are telling.

smgizmo said...

I also beleive that both Misty and Ron know a lot more than what they are telling. But of course they cant say to much because then they would be caught. Also why has this story died and not much media coverage anymore. For God sakes she needs to be found. Could someone explain to me why Ron received $12,000. dollars? For what?

Anonymous said...

Caylee's story needs no more coverage we all know her mom killed her and we need to focus on this little girl now and find her. I think the new step mom wasnt even home when it happened and came home at 3am and realized she wasnt there but was too drunk or on somwthing to call the police.

More focus should be on Haileigh than C. Anthony. Caylee is dead,we know that. We know what happened to her.
Haileigh,we dont know. We all have our own ideas. BUT JUSTICE SEEMS TO BE ASLEEP. I HOPE NOT!
