NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- More family drama as a community waits for answers in the disappearance of a little Putnam County girl.
First, Haleigh's father made his way to NYC to appear on national TV. Now, her stepmother is breaking her silence. Misty Cummings was interviewed Friday morning on the CBS Early Show.
For the first time we're hearing her talk about the impending divorce from Ron Cummings. She also points the finger at who she thinks is responsible for Haleigh's disappearance. Misty said, "They need to move on and look for the right person, because they're focusing on me, and I'm not the one that has Haleigh. I don't know where she is."
Misty Cummings talked candidly on the CBS Early Show Friday, and she didn't waste any time pointing fingers at who she thinks knows what happened to Haleigh. "I feel like it's on the other side of the family," said Misty.
She was wearing a t-shirt that said "Have you seen me?" plastered with a picture of Haleigh. Misty was the last person to see Haleigh the day she disappeared. She says she put the girl to bed at 8 p.m., and Haleigh was gone at 3 a.m. Police say there are holes in her story.
Misty says she just wants everything back to normal. Just this week, she found out her husband, Haleigh's father, wants a divorce.
"Do you think he believes you're guilty of something?" said CBS anchor, Maggie Rodriguez.
"No I don't think so," said Misty. "He tells me it's just to much pressure right now."
There was even more pressure from the family after Misty failed the polygraph test. "The guy said the reason I failed is because I feel like it's my fault, cause I was the last one seen with her," said Misty.
But Misty stands by her story, saying she had nothing to do with Haleigh's disappearance. "I feel in my heart she is still alive," said Misty.
We did make calls to Misty's attorney and her husband's attorney. They didn't call back. Haleigh's mother didn't want to say anything about Misty pointing fingers.
As for the investigation, the sheriff's office tells Action News they continue to follow up on leads and tips. They didn't see the interview Friday, but say the more talking she does the more they get to hear.
