Putnam County Sheriff Jeff Hardy said Wednesday there's no new information on the search itself in the St. John's River, or the tip that led to the latest round of dives.

The girl vanished from her father's home in Satsuma, about halfway between Orlando and Jacksonville, in Feb. 2009.

Her father's 17-year-old live-in girlfriend, Misty Croslin, was baby-sitting Haleigh at the time. She told investigators she woke up at 3 a.m. Feb. 10, 2009 to find Haleigh gone, and the back door propped open with a brick.

The sheriff's office has questioned Croslin's story, saying investigators don't believe Haleigh was abducted by a stranger. Croslin is in jail on unrelated drug charges.
