Posted by Rachel Leigh email

PUTNUM COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Investigators are sifting through more than 1,600 tips in the case of missing Florida girl Haleigh Cummings.

It's been two weeks since the 5-year-old girl disappeared in the middle of the night in Putnam County. Crime tape still surrounds the family home her dad and his girlfriend pray hourly for her safe return.

Hundreds of volunteers, from all over, are searching the surrounding area on foot, on four-wheelers and on horseback for clues as to where the child could be.

Meanwhile, a scam surfaces targeting Haleigh Cummings family. "Oh, we are sickened; we are sickened by anybody that would take something that is heart-sickening for our family and try to profit off of it, and then stamp the family's name on it," said one family member.

A fake Web site asks for donations to help find the missing 5-year-old girl. One clue that the Web site is a fake, Haleigh's name is misspelled on the page. Relatives say, they didn't set up the site and can't believe someone would take advantage of their situation.
