Haleigh Cumming’s father asks searchers to stay and help him look for her
Cummings asked Tim Miller, TES, to keep his team here and to continue looking, but Miller told Cummings they had to leave. “He was begging for us to stay, but I explained to him that we have other cases,” Miller said. “Let’s move forward, and if something comes up, we’ll come back.”
“Law enforcement is discouraged. Volunteers, I don’t know, but I encourage anybody that wants to help look for my daughter come back and help me look,” Ronald Cummings said.
Mr. Cummings made another plea for his daughter.
“For the perpetrator or perpetrators, please bring her home. Please bring her home safe,” Cummings said. “And if she’s watching, baby, I love you. I’ll never give up on you.”
Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy confirmed that family members are currently taking polygraph tests. The investigators will continue to follow up on leads-as many as 500 so far.
My heart just bleeds for Ron Cummings. Unlike so many young men in our society, he appears to be a real stand-up dad. He supports his children financially and emotionally, and by all accounts he loves them very much. IMO, he was doing the best he possibly could for them. I believe him when he says he will never stop looking for his little girl.
