SATSUMA, Fla. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies in northern Florida are searching house-to-house for a 5-year-old girl who went missing from her bed. Dive teams are also exploring a nearby river.
A Florida Amber Alert has been issued for Haleigh Cummings of Satsuma, which is about 70 miles north of Orlando. The girl was last seen Monday night.
Investigators say it's not clear if Haleigh was abducted or wandered out into the rural neighborhood that borders the river. They say the mobile home where she lives had no signs of forced entry, but that a back door was open.
Haleigh's father has told investigators his daughter was missing when he returned home from work around 3 a.m. yesterday. Ronald Cummings says his girlfriend was awake and frantic that Haleigh was missing from her bed.
