PALATKA, FL -- The Putnam County Sheriff's Office took a moment today to recognize the birthday of the little girl whose disappearance has been the subject of an Amber alert for over six months.

Haleigh Cummings turns six years old today.  She hasn't been seen since February, when she disappeared from her father's house in Satsuma.

Sheriff Jeff Hardy sent out a release this afternoon highlighting the latest information in the search for Haleigh, and what has been done in the past 6 months.

The Sheriff's Office says they have followed up on over 4,000 leads and conducted hundreds of interviews.

They have searched thousands of acres of land and water, using aircraft, dogs and horses as well as the countless people who have joined in the search.

The release states that Haleigh's parents, Ronald Cummings and Crystal Sheffield, are not considered suspects, but that Misty Croslin-Cummings, Ronald Cummings' wife, "continues to hold important answers."

The Sheriff's Office says her "sketchy account" of the evening Haleigh disappeared is contradicted by evidence at the scene, and she has failed to provide "any sort of detailed accounting of the hours" surrounding Haleigh's disappearance.

Haleigh and her brother were home with Misty the night of Haleigh's disappearance.
