The Tiger Express Sighting

The Tiger Express sighting on April 26, 2009
Witness name in possession of law enforcement

The second incident occurred on April 26, 2009 at approximately 6:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Tiger Express, located off of Highway 278 at 208 Railroad Avenue in Brunson, South Carolina.  

My husband and I were returning to our home in Georgia after spending the day at Hunting Island, South Carolina.  We pulled in at the Tiger Express to put fuel in the car.  I got out of the car and was headed to the restroom.  I went to the other side of the store entrance to bypass the people standing at the door that was closer to our vehicle.  As I approached the front of the store I noticed a four door, champagne colored vehicle, parked in front of the pumps.  

A white female was pumping gas and a little girl with long, blonde curly hair was with her.  I was approximately 20 feet from where the child and woman were standing.  The child looked like the missing child, Haleigh Cummings.  I stood in front of the store, trying to get a better view of this child.  The child was approximately four feet tall and weighed approximately 40 lbs.  I could not see if the child had a birth mark on her cheek and did not see her eye color.  The child appeared healthy and happy.  

After a few minutes, I noticed a man in the back seat of the vehicle. When I looked at him, he had a startled look on his face and quickly turned towards the woman and child.  He placed his left arm on the back of the seat of the front passengers’ seat and positioned his body where no one could see the child.  He was talking to the woman who was pumping gas.  I went to the bathroom inside the store, and as I was coming out of the door, noticed the man was making the child get in the floor board of the back seat.  I saw the top of the child's head as the man swung around to glare at me. 

I was going to try and get a tag number but the man was very intimidating.  The tag on the car was light blue and white.  It appeared to be a South Carolina tag.  There were bags and pillows in the back seat of the vehicle.

As my husband and I were getting ready to pull away from the pumps we noticed the champagne colored car slowly creeping around the back of the gas station, and right past our car.  The man was starring at us as they drove past our vehicle.  We pulled in behind them.  The man turned around with a wild look on his face and kept starring at us out of the back window.  They turned to their right, onto Highway 278, and we turned left.  I then asked my husband if he noticed anything strange about the car that was in front of us.  He stated yes, the guy in the back seat was acting very strange, trying to intimidate and acting like he was guilty of something, or paranoid.  He gave me a description of the woman, and the man.  When I told him about the child looking like Haleigh Cummings, my husband stated that the child was in the floor board of the car.  

My husband stated that the car was approximately a 2000 model, 4 door Toyota, champagne in color.
We did not have a phone signal to call anyone, but I did write in a tip to America's Most Wanted.  The following morning, April 27, 2009, I called Americas Most Wanted to follow up with the tip. The young man who answered stated they had received the information, and had reported it to law enforcement that morning.

My husband and I have not received any calls from Law Enforcement concerning the tip that was reported to Americas Most Wanted, April 26, 2009, regarding the possible sighting of Haleigh Cummings.

After looking at some of the different forums that had a few pictures of Haleigh Cumming’s family members I came across the forum.  I communicated with the Administrator and a few of her research members and told them of the reports or tips I had called in.  I explained that my husband and I could possibly identify the people we had seen if we had some pictures to look at.  The administrator sent me some pictures of various people.  I identified one picture that resembles the older woman I saw at the Goodwill store on February 10, 2009. This photograph is included in Attachment 3.***

My husband and I identified a man in another picture that looked like the man we saw on April 26, 2009, at the store in Brunson, S.C.  The man we saw appeared to have short, dark brown hair, medium complexion, medium build, of average height and was approximately twenty-five to thirty years old.  He had on a cut off tee- shirt.  This photograph is included in Attachment 1.*

The child that was seen with the male and female in Brunson, South Carolina, on April 26, 2009, appeared to be Haleigh Cummings.  The child appeared to be approximately four to five years old, three and one half to four feet tall, weighed approximately forty pounds, and had long sandy, blonde curly hair.  Her hair appeared to be in a loose pony tail.  The child seemed happy and healthy.  She was appeared to be very talkative and comfortable with the woman that was with her.  If I could have gotten close enough to see a birth mark and eye color, I could have made a positive identification on this child as being Haleigh Cummings.

The woman that my husband and I saw on April 26, 2009, in Brunson, South Carolina, appeared to be of average height, small to medium frame, weighed approximately 125 lbs., light complected and had short, sandy blonde hair with strawberry blonde high lights.  Her hair appeared to be cut in a blunt style that came just below her chin.  There is one picture, my husband and I both thought could have been the woman we saw in Brunson, S.C.  This photograph is included in Attachment 2.**

I am attaching pictures that my husband and I have identified as being people we believe to have seen, or resemble the people we saw, in the incidents described above.  I am also sending a copy of the statements indicating who these people are, if known, in reference to the Cummings case.  The pictures and descriptions of the people were given to me by the Administrator of the forum.  The administrator and her research team are currently trying to find additional photographs of Haleigh Cumming’s family members and friends/associates of the family.  If I am able to provide additional information and/or images in regards to the two incidents I will contact you. 

I hope the information my husband and I have provided, may be found useful in this case, and will bring about a positive conclusion to the whereabouts of this child. Everything stated is true to the best of our knowledge.  A signed copy of this letter will be mailed to you on or about August 24, 2009.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
Respectfully Yours,
