Girl Missing 5 Weeks Never Reported Lost; Mother Says Doing Own Search

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- A 2-year-old who police said vanished five weeks ago was never reported missing by her mother in a case that has baffled investigators
Detectives in Orange County said they received a call from the grandparents of Caylee Marie Anthony, 2, about the well-being of the child.
When Caylee's mother, Casey, was contacted by officers, it was determined that she apparently never told anyone that her daughter was missing.

Detectives said Anthony said she was doing her own investigation into her daughter's disappearance over the past five weeks, Local 6 reported.

The woman also said she saw movies and reports that if people in similar situations went to police, they had gotten hurt, Local 6's Erik von Ancken reported.

Anthony said her daughter was with a babysitter at the Sawgrass apartments but on June 9, the sitter did not answer the door.

Detectives said they checked with apartment management and learned that no one has lived in the apartment for five months.

Late Wednesday, Caylee's alleged baby sitter was tracked down by detectives and the woman said she has never cared for the missing child.

Investigators also said that Casey does not work where she initially clamed to be employed.

Officers said she admitted to lying throughout her interrogation, von Ancken reported.

"It is difficult to sort through what we are being told," Orange County sheriff's Sgt. John Allen said.

Also, detectives said Anthony did not show any emotion over the loss of her child. She did not cry or give any indication she was legitimately worried.

Since investigators cannot get a straight story, they are focusing on finding Caylee.

"I feel the more media exposure we have, the quicker we can bring Caylee home and that is the whole point of all of this -- to bring Caylee home safely," Caylee's grandmother Cindy Anthony said. "I kind of felt hopeless last night but I kind of felt hopeful today."

Anthony was taken into custody Wednesday in connection with the case.

Just doesn't sound right. I think they better check the mother out thoroughly.

Detectives Dig Through Backyard of Missing Florida Toddler's Grandparents for Clues

Caylee Marie Anthony

Detectives spent Friday digging through the backyard of the grandparents of a Florida toddler who's been missing more than a month.

Orange County Sheriff's authorities combed the Orlando yard of 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony's grandparents Cindy and George Anthony in the hopes of finding clues in the child's disappearance.
Cadaver dogs were at the scene, and several items were removed from the home, which became the focus of the investigation after a neighbor said the child's mother, Casey Marie Anthony, had borrowed a shovel about a month ago. That shovel has reportedly been taken by police as evidence.

Casey Anthony, 22, has been in custody since Wednesday, when she finally reported the child missing. The little girl lived in the house with her mother and grandparents until June 9, when Casey said she disappeared.
"This is difficult, tedious work," sheriff's Sgt. John Allen, who oversees the department's child abuse and missing persons division, told reporters during a press briefing Friday. "Just because we're here with cadaver dogs doesn't mean we're giving up hope that Caylee is alive."
Allen said they haven't found signs of the girl in the yard but it is only "one of several places we're looking." He wouldn't elaborate.
Caylee's grandparents had been "very cooperative" in the investigation, according to Allen; the sheriff's office said the search of their property in no way implicated them in the case.
"It's very clear to us that they want their granddaughter back," Allen said.
The hunt for evidence began Thursday night but stopped when darkness fell and resumed Friday morning. Detectives found "abnormalities" in the dirt that caused them to be suspicious, according to MyFOX Orlando.
Described by friends as a "habitual" and "compulsive" liar, Casey Anthony told investigators that she dropped Caylee off with a friend on June 9. Authorities have been unable to locate that woman, or verify anything else Anthony told them.
The FBI told that the bureau is aware of the case, but isn't playing a part in the probe.
"We're definitely aware of it and monitoring the situation, but that's the extent of our involvement," said Special Agent Dave Couvertier, a spokesman for the Orlando and Tampa FBI.
Orange County Sheriff's Capt. Angelo Nieves said the grandparents' property on Hopespring Drive is central to the investigation, but didn't provide further details, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Allen said sheriffs spent several hours with Casey Anthony after her arrest, but procedural regulations have barred them from interviewing her further in jail without her attorney.
Neighbor Diana Centeno, whose children have played with Caylee in the past, called the situation "scary," according to the Sentinel. She said she hoped Casey Anthony didn't have anything to do with the toddler's disappearance.
Anthony was arrested Wednesday on charges of child neglect and providing false information to law enforcement. She showed no emotion Thursday as she was ordered held without bond at the Orange County Jail.
The judge scolded the mother, saying she had "no regret or concern for her actions," the Sentinel reported.
"You left your 2-year-old child with a person who does not exist at an apartment you cannot identify and you lied to your parents about your child's whereabouts," said Judge John Jordan. "You cared so little about your child."
He ordered a mental health evaluation be done on Anthony, according to the newspaper.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department told that they have no reason to believe the toddler is dead.
"[We are] still operating under the hope she is going to turn up alive," Deputy Sheriff Carlos Padilla said. "[But] we are no closer today than we were yesterday."
Padilla said Anthony claims the child's father is not alive - something authorities are still looking into.
Investigators said their job has been made more difficult because Anthony continues to spin stories that aren't true.
"Based on the repetitive lies that the defendant has told, we do not know with whom the child is or even if the child is alive," sheriff's Cpl. Yuri Melich wrote in the arrest affidavit, according to the Sentinel. "It should be noted that at no time during any of the above interviews did the defendant show any obvious emotion as to the loss of her child."
Anthony told her mother that she was being sent to Tampa for work and would be back in a few days, but later changed her story and said she was going on a "mini-vacation," according to the Sentinel.
"I had no reason to believe they weren't where they were supposed to be," the newspaper quoted Cindy Anthony as saying. "I don't know why she fabricated this."
It was not clear why Casey Anthony never reported the child missing. The girl's grandparents decided to file the report on Tuesday after learning their daughter's car had been towed from a location that was nowhere near where she claimed to be staying.
"I've had the feeling the past couple of weeks that Casey's been holding back," Cindy Anthony told MyFOX Orlando. "I've been asking to speak with my granddaughter and she's been making excuses that I can't talk to her because she's with someone else or she's swimming or napping."
Casey Anthony told police that her daughter wasn't at the baby sitter's house when she went to pick the child up, so she started to do her own investigation.
She went to clubs that the baby sitter frequented and identified her as Zenaida Gonzalez, police said. But when detectives went to the apartment Anthony said belonged to the alleged baby sitter, they learned it had been vacant for almost five months, the newspaper reported.
Once detectives caught up with Gonzalez and showed her pictures of both Anthony and Caylee, Gonzalez said she didn't recognize them.
Anthony also told authorities that she worked at Universal Studios, and gave names of people who could vouch for her, according to the Sentinel. But officials later learned she was never employed at the theme park - and neither were the people she mentioned.
George Anthony said his daughter is a good mom and would not hurt his grandchild.
"My daughter is a fantastic mother," he told FOX News. "Our granddaughter's in capable hands. She was nurturing, she always did the right thing. ... I never once saw my daughter raise her voice."
Allen said police want to keep the case out in the public, and are following up on numerous leads that have come in because of the media coverage.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone who has seen Caylee to call the crime line at 1-800-423-TIPS.

Police: Mother's car smelled of 'decomposition'

Enlarge this image

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A sheriff's detective says a car driven by the mother of a missing 2-year-old Florida girl smelled of decomposition when investigators recovered it.
Casey Anthony's Pontiac was towed after being parked for days at an Orlando check-cashing business. Anthony's mother testified in court Tuesday that her daughter and granddaughter hadn't been home in weeks.
Cpl. Yuri Melich says it appeared that a stain, some dirt and 2-year-old Caylee's hair were in the trunk.
Casey Anthony has been charged with child endangerment, making false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation, but wants to be released on bond. Police say the 22-year-old has lied to them.
Casey Anthony's family says she was a good mother and never hurt Caylee.

Could Missing Florida Tot Caylee Be in Atlanta?

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

The lawyer for Casey Anthony, mother of missing toddler Caylee Anthony, disclosed late Tuesday that the family had received a credible tip that a small child matching Caylee's description was seen boarding a flight to Atlanta at Orlando International Airport.

The tip was even more credible because the person reported that the little girl pronounced her last name the same way Caylee's grandparents say she does, attorney Jose Baez told FOX News.
The child's grandmother Cindy Anthony confirmed that the lead surfaced late Tuesday. She said the tip was from a woman who lives in Orlando and was left on her voicemail. Cindy Anthony said she called the woman back and they talked.
The caller claimed to have seen Caylee board the flight with an older woman. When she talked to the woman and child, the youngster apparently said her name was Caylee "Antony," pronouncing it without the "h" the way Cindy Anthony says her granddaughter does. When asked her age, the little girl said she was 3; Caylee is almost 3 years old.

Meanwhile, a judge set bond at half a million dollars for Casey Anthony Tuesday after detectives testified that she is a "person of interest" in the little girl's disappearance.
Anthony, 22, has been jailed since last week and was hoping to win release at a bond hearing in Orange County, Fla. The whopping $500,000 she needs to post will make it difficult for Anthony to get her wish.
Prosecutors said the case is beginning to look like a homicide.
Anthony's attorney said there is circumstantial evidence of a possible killing, but not enough to give prosecutors the confidence to charge her with homicide, kidnapping or any similar offense.
Detectives revealed that Anthony had become more of a focus of their investigation into her daughter Caylee's disappearance after they found evidence of human decomposition in the trunk of a car she drove.

Detective Yuri Melich testified that strands of hair similar to those of Caylee Marie Anthony as well as dirt were found in the trunk of a car used by her mother.
The odor of "decomposition" was also detected in the vehicle, he told the judge presiding over Casey Anthony's bond hearing Tuesday afternoon.
"The smell I smelled was that of decomposition," Melich said.
When asked whether he considered the child's mother a suspect in her disappearance, Melich said he'd classify her as a "person of interest."
Melich also said a witness he interviewed remembered seeing bruises on Caylee's body and a mark under her eye without knowing that Melich had a photo showing similar marks on the toddler, who has been missing more than a month.
On cross examination, Melich admitted he didn't have any direct evidence that Casey Anthony played a part in her little girl's disappearance.
Investigators used cadaver dogs to search the child's grandparents' yard last week after a neighbor told them Anthony had asked to borrow a shovel around the time her daughter Caylee was last seen.
They have previously said that almost nothing Anthony has told them about her child's disappearance has checked out to be true. They haven't even been able to get information about the child's father, who Anthony has said is dead, Melich testified.
Also at Tuesday's hearing - held to argue over whether or not to release Casey from jail - the child's grandmother said her daughter is a good mom and hasn't committed a crime but has been dishonest before and has had trouble keeping jobs.
"Casey's lied to me in the past and when she's lied she's always told me the truth," Cindy Anthony said. "We've gotten to the bottom of the truth when I talk to her and spend time with her."
She told attorneys that her daughter is her "best friend outside my husband" and she had no reason to believe anything had happened to her granddaughter until last week because she'd "spoken to Casey on a daily basis."
"Without a doubt, she is a great mom," Cindy Anthony testified. "You can see it in her eyes. You can see it when they're together. There's nothing but love."
She said her daughter should be released from jail "because she hasn't committed a crime" and because she needs to help find Caylee.
Cindy Anthony speculated on the stand that someone was threatening her daughter and that's why she hasn't told the whole story about where Caylee is.
Earlier Tuesday, Cindy Anthony said Casey left the child in the care of someone she trusted, but that person betrayed her.
In an interview on FOX News Tuesday morning, she implied that her granddaughter might have been kidnapped.
Casey Anthony has been in prison since last week, when she finally reported her toddler daughter missing on Wednesday at her parents' urging.
Caylee was last seen June 9, according to Anthony - who investigators say has spun a Web of lies in their interviews with her. She was arrested on charges of child endangerment, making false officials statements and obstructing a criminal investigation.
Her attorney denies that his client has been lying to police and says she's been cooperating.
"My client at no time refused to speak with law enforcement," said lawyer Jose Baez at a Monday press conference. "We are focused on trying to find Caylee. We want to find Caylee."
Anthony was denied bail at a hearing last week.
Cindy Anthony said her daughter "has her reasons why she just can't blurt out the whole story."
"Casey has been trying to tell the police in her own way what she can tell them and the only unfortunate thing is, you know, they want a clear picture," Cindy Anthony told FOX News on Monday. "There's no clear picture. Casey has her reasons why she just can't blurt out the whole story, so she's been honest with them for what she can be honest with."
Volunteers in the Orlando, Fla., were continuing to canvass neighborhoods this week, distributing about 50,000 fliers, according to MyFOX Orlando.
A local foundation and business owner were offering a new reward of a combined $125,000 for any information about Caylee's disappearance or whereabouts, MyFOX Orlando reported. The reward will be in effect for at least the next three months.
Orange County sheriff's detectives say they have few new leads. Authorities are looking into the family's claims that Casey Anthony received a mysterious call from her daughter last Tuesday.

Police say Caylee Anthony is dead

Posted: Sep 1, 2008 10:55 AM EDT
Updated: Sep 1, 2008 11:08 AM EDT

ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - Investigators acknowledge that recent FBI labs tests confirm missing 3 year-old Caylee Anthony is dead.
The toddler's mother, Casey Anthony, is being held in an Orlando jail on several charges, including child-neglect and filing a false report to law enforcement.
For the first time on the record, investigators said lab tests confirm it was Caylee's decomposing body that was in the trunk of her mother's car.
Anthony reported Caylee missing in July, a month after the last known sighting of her. She told police that a baby-sitter kidnapped Caylee, but police found inconsistencies in her story.

New Evidence in Caylee Anthony Case

Mom Tells Family 'Little Snot Head' Caylee Missing 31 Days, Documents Say

Sept. 26, 2008


The mother of missing toddler Caylee Anthony repeatedly told friends and family in the weeks before Caylee disappeared that her daughter was with a nanny named Zani, though police have said they doubt Anthony's story, according to documents and interviews released today.
Casey Anthony has said she last saw her daughter when she dropped her off with a woman named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez, whom she said was the baby's nanny. The documents released today, which include interviews with Anthony's mother and boyfriends and records of instant messages, show that investigators searched Anthony's computer for evidence of contact with the nanny.
"No photographs, video, e-mail, instant message chat or any other type of communication with a Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez was discovered on either computer," a computer forensics report says. A woman by that name has sued Anthony for defamation.
As first reported by ABC News affiliate WFTV, Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony, said in a videotaped interview that her daughter was spending nights away from home in the weeks before Caylee's June disappearance and that she said she was with the nanny.
Caylee Anthony was reported missing in July. Her mother has been called a person of interest in the disappearance of her daughter but has not been charged in connection with Caylee's disappearance.
Police have been searching for Caylee since July, and the Orange County Sheriff's Department has said that it believes she is probably dead.
Anthony has given the police changing and inaccurate information about the case, according to investigators. She has been charged with child neglect and making false statements.
In interviews released Thursday, Anthony's brother Lee said he and his family first realized Caylee was missing in July, after noticing an awful smell coming from her car. Police have said that air sample tests showed evidence of human decomposition in Anthony's trunk.
"It hit you like a wave," Lee Anthony said of the smell.
Anthony said that when he asked his sister where Caylee was, she insisted that the girl was with her nanny. Only when Cindy Anthony threatened to call the police did Casey Anthony admit that she had not seen her daughter in more than a month.

Do you want to know the truth, I haven't seen Caylee in 31 days," Anthony said, according to her brother.
In documents released Friday, Anthony's family appears skeptical of her story. The manager of a tow truck lot where Anthony's car had been impounded, said Anthony's father told him Anthony had been lying and that his granddaughter was missing.
Simon Burch said he noticed an overpowering smell coming from Anthony's car. "When he opened the car door and that stench come out, my heart dropped because he was all of a sudden he was he'd been telling me about his granddaughter missing," he said.
In instant messages sent to a former boyfriend, a former sheriff's deputy who was fired over his relationship with Anthony, Anthony complains about how difficult it is to be a single mother, once referring to Caylee as the "little snot head."
"Seriously, spending the day with caylee [sic ] , is 10 times more exhausting, than working a 12-hour event," she wrote.

Murder indictment issued in missing Fla. girl case

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Florida grand jury has issued a sealed murder indictment in the case of missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony.
Prosecutors did not immediately release the name of the suspect Tuesday.
The child's mother, Casey Anthony, waited more than a dozen miles away. Investigators have called her a suspect in the child's disappearance, and her attorney says she would turn herself in if she is the person indicted.
The 22-year-old mom so far has only been charged with child neglect, lying to investigators and some unrelated fraud and theft counts.
Casey Anthony's father, George, testified behind closed doors earlier in the day along with a detective and an FBI agent.

Detectives Narrow Timeline in Missing Girl Case

ORLANDO, Fla. --
Detectives narrowed the timeline on Wednesday as they continued to build their case against Casey Anthony.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said images show Casey Anthony arm-in-arm with a man inside an east Orange County Blockbuster store.
What was significant was the date: June 16. It was the day investigators said they believe she killed her daughter, Caylee Anthony.
Surveillance photos were taken just before 8 p.m. that night, possibly after Caylee died, police said.
Police also continued to sift through hundreds of psychic tips that have poured into the Orange County Sheriff's Office. One of the anonymous psychic tipsters explained why she thinks she can help find Caylee.
"I knew this girl had given up her child," the tipster said.
She said she knows Caylee Anthony is alive.
She considers herself a visionary, and said her information shows Caylee living in Canada after Casey Anthony gave her away.
"She felt her child was threatened and didn't feel like she could protect her child," the woman said.
That tip is just one of 5,000 that have come in on the case that detectives have prioritized and investigated. The majority of the tips, police said, are from psychics. The problem is that some of the visions are just too vague.
"I know that child spent a considerable amount of time in a cottage, on a dirt road," the tipster said.
The tips come from Crimeline, e-mails and even handwritten letters from as far away as Canada, Mexico and Poland.
Some suggested Caylee was in a bomb shelter or being kept in a cage as a pet.
The more morbid visions show Caylee buried in the woods, in water or burned in a farm field.
Investigators said they've followed all credible leads, even from psychics. In the end, they said they believe it won't be a vision that solves the case.
"The person who knows is Casey," Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Carlos Padilla said. "It all lies with Casey."

Thousands Come to Orlando to Search for Missing Toddler Caylee Anthony

Friday, November 07, 2008

More than 3,000 volunteers from 30 different states are descending on the Orlando area this weekend for a massive search for missing toddler Caylee Anthony, who is believed to be dead.

The effort will be led by the Texas-based Equusearch and will target about 130 different areas, according to
"This is the largest search we have ever conducted. It is very exciting," said Equusearch executive Gary Peterson.
The 3-year-old's mother Casey Anthony is behind bars for allegedly murdering her little girl, who vanished in mid-June but wasn't reported missing until a month later.
On Friday, attorneys requested a gag order in an effort to stop the steady stream of information and evidence that's been released in the case.
Meanwhile, documents publicized Thursday reveal that Caylee's grandfather worried about the smell of a dead person he detected coming from his daughter's car trunk.
"I had bad vibes the very first day when I got that car," the little girl's grandfather George Anthony said in interviews with investigators on July 24.
He told police that he said to himself, "Please, God, don't let that be my Caylee."
The Florida State Attorney's Office in Orlando released 500 pages of documents, including interviews with the 22-year-old Casey Anthony's parents, her former boyfriend and friends in connection with Caylee's disappearance.
Click here for photos.
George Anthony told police that he was concerned about a familiar odor wafting from the trunk of his daughter's Pontiac Sunfire.
As a former homicide investigator, he said, he recognized the smell of death, and his wife Cindy Anthony noticed it too, even though she told the media she thought it was decaying pizza.
"After we pulled inside the garage ... her exact words were, 'Jesus Christ what died?'" George Anthony said in interviews with authorities. "I'm sitting here as ... a guy who smelled the smell before years ago, and you just never forget it."
Forensic tests released last month confirmed that hair found in the trunk of the vehicle came from a decomposing body. DNA evidence suggests a corpse had been in the car's trunk.
Other documents released Thursday include transcripts from taped interviews with Amy Huzienga, Casey Anthony's former best friend who is now accusing Anthony of forging her checks, reported.
On Wednesday, a judge agreed to delay Casey Anthony's check fraud case until after her first-degree murder trial in January. The charges of writing checks using Huzienga's checkbook are unrelated.
Caylee disappeared in June, two months shy of her third birthday, but wasn't reported missing until July.
Anthony said she left Caylee with a baby sitter, but police contend that's a lie.
The little girl has not been found, and authorities say she was killed. In addition to first-degree murder, her mother is charged with manslaughter and other offenses. Anthony has pleaded not guilty.

Docs: Casey Anthony's Computer Has Suspicious Internet Searches

Last Edited: Wednesday, 26 Nov 2008, 3:53 PM EST

Casey Anthony

From MyFoxOrlando Reports

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Court documents released Wednesday show that someone performed Internet searches for "neck breaking" and "household weapons" on Casey Anthony's home computer.

Discovery documents - Set One
Discovery documents - Set Two
Discovery documents - Set Three
Discovery documents - Set Four
Discovery documents - Set Five

The Orange County State Attorney's Office released almost 800 pages of discovery documents in the case of 22-year-old Casey Anthony, who has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other charges in the June disappearance of her daughter Caylee .

On March 17, someone used the Anthonys' home computer to do Google searches for peroxide, shovels, acetone, alcohol and how to make chloroform. Traces of chloroform, which is used to induce unconsciousness, were found in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car during forensic testing by a Tennessee lab.

Cell phone records include text messages in which Casey calls herself "the worst mother," and calls Caylee a "little snothead," according to the documents.

Caylee has not been seen since June, but she wasn't reported missing until a month later. The child's grandmother first called authorities in July to say she hadn't seen Caylee for a month and
her daughter's car smelled like death.

Anthony told authorities she had left her daughter with a baby sitter in June and the two were gone when she returned from work. She says she spent the next month trying to find her daughter and didn't call authorities because she was scared. Investigators say they have poked several holes in her story.

Todd Black, a spokesman for Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez, said the standard procedure for defense attorneys was to review discovery documents for a few days before commenting.

Later Wednesday, Circuit Judge Stan Strickland denied a prosecutor's request for a wide-ranging gag order. Strickland ruled the state did not prove that national TV appearances by Baez and other comments in the media would sufficiently prejudice the jury pool.

"Even with a gag order the publicity and media attention would continue unabated," Strickland wrote in his opinion.

Strickland said attorneys on both sides already are bound to a Florida Bar statue prohibiting comments that are false or would otherwise taint the jury pool.

The gag order would have not only affected prosecutors and defense attorneys, but Orange County Sheriff's investigators and Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy.

"Given the fact the prosecution has been leaking information almost nonstop for months, a gag order wouldn't matter at this point," Black said for the defense.
