Investigators with the Putnam County Sheriff's Office say it's not clear if Haleigh was abducted. The trailer where she lives had no signs of forced entry but a back door was ajar.

Haleigh's father says the blonde girl was missing when he returned home from work around 3 a.m. Tuesday. Ronald Cummings says his girlfriend was awake and frantic that Haleigh was missing from her bed.

Local and state authorities and the FBI searched Tuesday in neighbors' homes and in vehicles leaving the child's neighborhood.
