PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- The person considered a central figure in the disappearance of Haleigh Cummings was in court this morning learning when her trial on drug charges will go before a jury.

Misty Croslin was arrested in January on drug charges.

Today in court, Putnam County Court Judge Wendy Berger asked if the prosecution had any offers on the table for her; they do not.

Croslin's trial is now set for Aug. 23. She faces six counts of trafficking in prescription medication.

In February, 2009, Croslin was babysitting her then-boyfriend Ronald Cummings' children, including Haleigh. Croslin said she put the kids to bed, and when she woke up, Haleigh was gone.

Haleigh, 5-years-old at the time, hasn't been seen since.

Investigators have maintained from the beginning that while she may not be a suspect, Croslin knows more than she's letting on about what happened that night.

The search has continued ever since then, but reintensified in April after a tip led investigators to a boat ramp near Haleigh's home in Satsuma. The tip turned up nothing.

Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy has told Haleigh's family that she is most likely dead, but the search will continue.
