2010 search area for Haleigh Cummings
SATSUMA, Fla. -- Reports of a human skull found off a boat ramp this afternoon turned out to be a false alarm, said police.
Investigators responded to a call at the water's edge near Buchanan Circle in Satsuma that a human skull had been found.
Investigators found the object in about 4" of water and determined it was a plastic replica of a human skull, a type of Halloween decoration.
In April 2010, investigators looking for Haleigh Cummings who disappeared in 2009 spent three days searching for her around a boat ramp five miles from where the plastic skull was found today. That search turned up no new leads.
Police have told the family that Haleigh is most likely dead, but has also promised to continue investigating.
