NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee authorities have arrested the mother of a woman who was baby-sitting a 5-year-old Florida girl when she disappeared several months ago.
The Tennessean reports that Nashville police and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents arrested Lisa Croslin on a fugitive-from-justice warrant on Thursday. She was wanted by Florida authorities on forgery and theft charges.
Croslin is the mother of Misty Croslin, who police say was the last person to see Haleigh Cummings when she disappeared Feb. 10 from a mobile home in Putnam County, Fla.
Haleigh's parents are divorced. Misty Croslin is her father's girlfriend.
Authorities are treating the case as an abduction.
