Florida Divorce Finalized For Missing Child’s Father And Stepmother

A Florida divorce court has finalized the dissolution of marriage action for Ronald Cummings, father of Haleigh Cummings, a young girl who disappeared in February 2009. Ronald Cummings cited an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage to his wife, Misty Cummings, who he married one month after his daughter went missing from his Florida home. Under the terms of the marital settlement agreement which was approved by the St. Johns County Court, a divorce court north of Fort Lauderdale, the parties waived any rights to alimony, child support and other financial payments from each other.

Misty Cummings was the last person that saw Haleigh Cummings before she disappeared from her father’s home in Putnam County. After placing the child to bed, the following morning she woke up and realized that the child was missing. Police do not believe that Misty Cummings has told them all of the information that she may know related to the child’s disappearance. They believe that she holds important clues in the case since she has neglected to provide an accounting of the later evening before and early morning of the child’s disappearance. In addition, physical evidence has contradicted Misty Cumming’s account of the evening activities. She has yet to be named a person of interest or a suspect in this investigation.
