The search for Haleigh Cummings Action News Jacksonville – admin Posted by admin on Jan 26, 2012 – JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Haleigh Cummings home is only a speck on the map of Palatka county. Even from a birds-eye view, it is hard to see the homes in Haleigh’s neighborhood. Finding a six year old girl has been even harder. “Each one of those plots were searched the best they could be,” says George Pottorf, who has been searching for Haleigh since the day she went missing. Each step behind Haleigh’s neighborhood takes you deeper and deeper into the woods. Action News found that once we hit certain spots in the woods, you could barely see a person in front of you, let alone a scrap of evidence at your feet. They are woods, a forest, that only experts can get through. Woods so deep and so thick, that even our camera had a hard time getting through some of the thickest terrain in Florida. This is the first time the public gets to see why a search on this land is so difficult. “You don’t want to find anything, that’s the key,” says Pottorf. “Actually, you’re hoping for a good result and obviously if you find what you are looking for, it’s not going to be a good end result.” Pottorf has the training necessary to find the clues that could lead to a break in the Haleigh case. He owns hundreds of acres right next to Haleigh’s home and knows the land well. As a lieutenant with the Florida Fish and Wildlife, George is also an expert in the water. In the early hours of the investigation, George searched for Haleigh by boat too. “On the very first day, we spent probably about 16 hours
