Missing girl's dad: 'Baby, I love you'
by UPI

SATSUMA, Fla. - The father of a 5-year-old Florida girl missing for 23 days says he can't stand not knowing what happened to his daughter and police say they have no suspects.

Ronald Cumming says his pain is like nothing else he's experienced, WJXT-TV in Jacksonville, Fla., reported.

"Baby, I love you and you'll always be with me," Cummings said.

Haleigh disappeared from her father's mobile home in Satsuma, Fla., during the night of Feb. 10, the same day a memorial service was held for Caylee Marie Anthony, another missing Florida girl whose June 2008 disappearance attracted international attention.

Caylee's skeletal remains were found Dec. 11 and her mother was indicted on murder charges.

Journalism monitors observe the coverage of Haleigh's disappearance is much less than Caylee's.

"I think the greatest difference between the Caylee story and the Haleigh story is social class," Poynter Institute senior scholar Roy Peter Clark said.

"I don't believe that working-class Americans get a very fair shake in the news media in general," he told the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel.

Sheriff's deputies investigating Haleigh's disappearance say they consider no one a suspect or person of interest, despite receiving more than 2,300 tips.

The parents of 17-year-old Misty Croslin, Cummings' girlfriend and the last person believed to have seen Haleigh before she was reported missing, told WJXT they were suspicious of a cousin in Tennessee who was in Satsuma when Haleigh disappeared.

Haleigh's mother, Crystal Sheffield, has been camping near Cummings' mobile home so she can embrace Haleigh when police bring her back, WJXT said.
