PUTNAM COUNTY, FL -- The teenager who said she put Haleigh Cummings to bed before the little girl disappeared got pulled over in Lake Mary Wednesday as investigators followed up on a report of road rage.
The Seminole County Sheriff's Office, according to the Lake Mary Police Department, initiated a felony traffic stop on a car with two women inside. Misty Croslin-Cummings was in the passenger seat.
According to the Lake Mary Police Department, a woman called 911 to say she thought she saw the driver of a car on Interstate 4 wave a gun around.
Authorities stopped the car at a gas station where they conducted a felony stop because of the high-risk situation due to the report of a possible gun.
Both women were ordered out of the car at gunpoint and handcuffed, according to the Lake Mary Police Department.
Police officers searched the car. The two women stood by surprised, but calm, according to police.
Police didn't find any firearms. There were cigarette boxes in the car. The public information officer at the Lake Mary Police Department said it's possible the driver had a cigarette box in her hand and the other driver confused that with a gun.
Misty and the unidentified female driver were released and allowed to go on their way.
An attorney for Misty Croslin-Cummings told First Coast News she was on her way back to Putnam County from Orlando.
No one wanted to press charges, according to the Lake Mary Police Department. A Lake Mary Police officer told First Coast News he believes the woman who called 911 didn't know who was in the car.
Earlier this week, news surfaced that Ronald Cummings, Haleigh's father, and his teenaged wife are in the process of divorcing. The couple married shortly after Haleigh disappeared.
Haleigh Cummings has not been seen since she went to bed at her home in Satsuma on the night of Feb. 9. Call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS if you have information that can help investigators.
