Associated Press: The father of a missing 5-year-old north Florida girl plans to marry his 17-year-old girlfriend.

Putnam County Clerk of Courts Tim Smith says Ronald Cummings and Misty Croslin applied for a marriage license Monday in Palatka, Fla.

Because Croslin is only 17, she needed consent of both parents. The license is good until March 12.

Relatives say they plan to marry as soon as possible.

Haleigh Cummings has been missing for a month.

Croslin was sleeping in the same room as Haleigh when the girl disappeared from her home in Satsuma.

Despite intense searches and hundreds of leads, no sign of the child has been found.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477).

What, they can’t wait until Haleigh is found?

Misty Croslin, I hope you are reading this…

You and Haleigh’s father should be focusing on finding her! Not marriage!!!

Please I think they know she’s not going to be found!!!!! Well at least Misty does. How can somebody walk into a trailer pick up a little girl feet away from where the girl friend is sleeping,take her all the way back through the trailer, a brick keeping the door open and this girl never wakes up. Listen to her story she got up to go to the bathroom all the way down the hall instead of using the one in the bedroom where she was sleeping and thats when she seen the kitchen light on and Haliegh was gone. Don’t buy it!

Does anyone think that maybe they are doing this so they do not have to testify against eachother in the future. seems very suspicious to me.

My question…I have very legal knowledge but is it not true that there is something where a spouse is not required to testify against there significant other in court??? Sounds to me like that is what is being cooked up. Otherwise…second question, Why now???

It all seems pretty suspicious to me. Isn’t it kind of wrong that the girl’s father is going to be “happily married” after his daughter goes missing? Shouldn’t he want his daughter to attend the wedding? Marriage is an important event to remember after all.

BS!! That poor little girl was accidentaly killed before the father went to work! He convinced his slave/bride to help him cover it up! He probably promised to marry her if she helped him! Her story keeps changing and each time she seems a little less upset and a little more put together. The whole thing stinks!! I have a friend who lost joint cutody because she was late a few times on child support. She reported abuse every time and was punished because she did not have the money to file in court as did her Ex-husband. It is a money game these days!! A Mommy should be with small chilren if at all possible!!!
