PUTNAM COUNTY, FL -- There was no progress in the search for Haleigh Cummings today, but there was court action involving her family.

The stepmother of Haleigh, the now 6-year-old girl who was last seen in her Satsuma home in February, was in court today.

That information comes from attorney Robert Fields, who is representing Misty Cummings, now the wife of Haleigh's father Ronald.

Fields says Misty was asking a judge to make a restraining order against her brother Hank, or "Tommy," permanent.

The judge agreed.

Tommy, who was also in court, said he will not be affected since he's moving to Massachusetts anyway.

In recent weeks, the search for the missing girl has heated up, and most of the new attention has been focused on Misty, who underwent a polygraph and voice analysis of her own choosing because she said she wanted to clear her name.

Texas Equusearch, the group who has been searching for Haleigh and who led the testing, said she did not pass either test.

Last weekend, the search went all the way to Massachusetts following up a potential lead, but that turned up nothing.

There is a $35,000 reward for information leading to Haleigh.
