At a recent vigil for missing children held this past Sunday, Ronald Cummings, the father of missing Haleigh Cummings, had this to say about a couple of the estimated forty people attending. The event was one of many taking place across the country in an effort to raise awareness about those who are missing.
Ronald Cummings begged the public for help to find his missing 5-year-old daughter Haleigh Cummings in a video released last week on his lawyer’s Web site.
But today he amended that message — he wants help from everyone except Cindy and George Anthony.
“The family of Ronald Cummings, father of Haleigh Cummings, wishes to make it clear that they do not want any involvement by George and Cindy Anthony in the continuing search for Haleigh Cummings,” according to a news release issued by the Kimball & Snider Law Firm, which represents Cummings.
“The Anthony’s have their own agenda, as witnessed by their recent media tour. The facts relating to the death of Calee (sic) Anthony, which resulted in the first degree murder charges against Casey Anthony, are in no way similar to Haleigh’s disappearance,” the release said.
From the The National Vigil For Hope website there is this interesting disclosure. It is ironic that an organization wishing to raise awareness of missing children lists only 12 of them yet has over 60 links to Community Partners.
Disclosure: The National Vigil For Hope is a coalition comprised of businesses, organizations, and individuals throughout communities across the country who believe the power of prayer, hope, and awareness can help bring more positive results in finding the missing children and adults that need to come home to their families. The National Vigil For Hope is a public awareness endeavor in communities across the country; the event is hosted by volunteers and organized by a volunteer committee that own, operate, and manage businesses and organizations in the United States no funds are collected or made for the objective of bringing more awareness to those missing.
How would any collected funds be used?
