PALATKA, FL -- Misty Croslin-Cummings, the stepmother of Haliegh Cummings, no longer has legal representation. The move follows an appearance on the CBS Early Morning Show.
Cummings will no longer be represented by Putnam County attorney Robert Fields. He says he feels he has "navigated her through the most difficult parts of this matter," and he "wishes her well."
Fields advised Croslin-Cummings not to New York for the nationally televised interview Friday morning.
During the interview, Cummings suggested someone on her husband's side of the family may know what happened to her missing stepdaughter. Shortly after, Fields made the announcement.
Ronald Cummings' attorney confirmed Tuesday that he was asking his wife for a divorce.
Misty Croslin-Cummings says she put 5-year-old Haleigh to bed on the night of February 9. Early the next morning, the teenager said she woke up to discover Haleigh had vanished. The little girl would've celebrated her 6th birthday in August.
If you have any information that would help investigators locate Haleigh Cummings, call 911 or Crimestoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
