Caylee is Still Missing

Updated below.

The poor child is still out there somewhere and the Grandparents, George and Cindy, have announced that their "regular Sunday Night Vigil" is going to be replaced by a vigil at a church this Friday evening. I have to wonder what is going to come out of their mouths at this one! Last Sunday we had Cindy demanding that everyone get off their asses and find their granddaughter. But, that does contradict other things that Cindy has been saying. She wants us to believe that the reason that Casey hasn't given up the truth of Caylee's location is that if we know where she is, her life is in danger. If her life is in danger if her location is known, then why the hell does she want us to go find her? In an interview with Fox News outside her home this morning, Cindy Anthony told reporters outside her home that her jailed daughter, Casey Marie Anthony, issued a warning about 2-year-old Caylee Marie Anthony's safety; "Casey is telling us Caylee's life is in danger," Cindy Anthony said.

Which is it, Cindy? Do you want us to "get off our asses" and find the child or do you want us to sit on our hands the way you have? I'm also trying to figure out when you got this "warning" from Casey since you cancelled your visit with Casey at the jail yesterday? George was the last one to visit her, right? Are you getting psychic messages from your daughter now? Geez!

The big news yesterday was that Casey Anthony was formally charged with child neglect (a 3rd degree felony) and lying to investigators (a misdemeanor). In an interview later after the charges were announced, Cindy proclaimed it a "victory", because they didn't charge her with anything more serious. She seems to be under a mistaken impression that now that these two charges have been filed the prosecutors can't file anything else. In her interview, she said that yesterday was "the last day they could file anything". Uhm.. Lady, you need to talk to the attorneys a bit more. The prosecutors can file additional charges anytime they want. As soon as they have proof of anything more serious, all they have to do is file them. There is no statute of limitations on murder, you know?

Then, last night on Greta Van Susteren had an interview with Grandma Cindy and Grandpa George in their living room. One of the "mysteries" in this case got "solved" last night. One of the things that came out in the last week or so was a police report of the Anthony's shed being broke into and some gas cans being stolen. In previous interviews, both George and Cindy tried to brush off questions about those gas cans. Denying they were stolen, denying that Casey had anything to do with the incident, etc. etc... Well, last night, George let the cat out of the bag. He got the gas cans back from Casey! Here's the part of the transcript from On The Record where they were talking about the shed and the gas cans:
VAN SUSTEREN: Are these the sheds were there was some report something was stolen from the sheds or broken into?
CINDY ANTHONY: Yes, and we actually need to replace a lot of stuff out here. But yes, this is one of the sheds that we would normally keep locked and normally keep the shovels in, which we do keep the shovels in. This is his toolshed. The lawn mower, you know, weed-whacker, that type of thing, shovels, axes, hoes, anything you do gardening work is locked up in here, like that. I mean, it's a normal shed.
VAN SUSTEREN: Was something reported stolen from this, though?
CINDY ANTHONY: Yes, gas cans.
VAN SUSTEREN: When was that report made that gas cans were stolen?
CINDY ANTHONY: You'd have to ask George.
VAN SUSTEREN: Was that, though, before Caylee was -- had been reported missing or after, that the gas cans...
CINDY ANTHONY: That was before.
VAN SUSTEREN: And gas cans were -- how many gas cans?
GEORGE ANTHONY: Two, the 2-and-a-half-gallon and one about a gallon- and-a-quarter, something like that.
VAN SUSTEREN: Now, you made the report on June 24, though. That's when you noticed it. Do you remember when you last were in there, so you have some sort of window of when that could have happened?
GEORGE ANTHONY: It could have been Sunday. I believe I was in there Sunday. I don't believe I was in there the day before that, like, on the 23rd. I'm almost positive it's a Sunday.
VAN SUSTEREN: So the Sunday the 23rd, you might have been in there?
CINDY ANTHONY: Well, Sunday would have been the 22nd.
VAN SUSTEREN: All right. So as best you can tell, it happened between the 22nd and the 24th. someone broke in there.
GEORGE ANTHONY: Uh-huh. That's when I saw my daughter. I was getting ready to go to work, and the garage door goes open and my daughter comes in. This is about 2:25, 2:30 in the afternoon on the 24th. As she comes in the house, and I said, Hey, how're you doing? And she says, Fine, Dad. I says, Well, what's going on? And she says, Oh, I'm just stopping home for about 10 minutes, get some clothes. I go to go back to work. Where's Caylee? She's with Zanny. And I said, OK, when are you guys coming home? She says, Oh, we'll be back home maybe late tonight or the next day.

I said, OK. Have you been talking to Mom? Oh, yes, I talk to Mom every day. I said, I know, but did you talk to Mom today? She sort of hesitated for a moment and she says, Yes. And she says, Oh, by the way, it's a shame what happened in the shed. And I said...
GEORGE ANTHONY: And I said, Really? She says, yes. I said, Interesting. And I just said, Hey, by the way, I said, I'm getting ready to rotate your mom's tires on her car. There's a little metal wedge that fits underneath your tires so your car doesn't rock back and forth. And I said, Well, I'd like to have it, so in case you're not here over the weekend, I'd like to be able to do it.

She was hesitant about letting me get in the car. And I said, Well, listen, I got an extra key. I'll just go get it. Well, she was adamant about -- about that.
VAN SUSTEREN: What, not letting you into the car?
GEORGE ANTHONY: Yes, didn't want me to get into the car to get the stuff out. Dad, I'll get it for you. Dad, I'll get it out. I said, It's no problem. I know where it's at. I'll get it, get it out and be done with it.

So as we're walking out through the garage, she's still telling me, Dad, I'll get it. Give me a minute, I'll get it. I said, Casey, I'm capable of reaching inside your car, and I got it. So -- and she opened up the trunk of the car...
CINDY ANTHONY: The gas cans were there.
GEORGE ANTHONY: (INAUDIBLE) The gas cans there. She's the one that took the gas cans.
Yup, Cindy and George admitted that their precious daughter was a thief! And Cindy even admitted that Casey is a liar! But, according to Cindy "lying isn't a criminal offense. Lying doesn't mean that you're a murderer." Uhm... Hey lady! Lying is against the law when you lie to investigators! Isn't that one of the charges that were filed against your daughter yesterday?

And the grandparents (Or Grandzillas, as one of the commentors on my blog named them.) are planning a birthday party this coming Saturday for Caylee because Casey has promised that her little girl would be home by her third birthday on Aug. 9. If this child magically shows up for her birthday party, I would hope that the whole damn family be put in adjoining cells.

Greta says she and her crew have some "new information" and they'll tell us about it tonight on her show. So it looks like I'll be watching On The Record tonight to see what they dug up.

Update 11:15am:
I just stumbled upon another news story and just had to add it here. According to one of the Orlando, FL news stations, WFTV 9, Casey may not have a visitor tomorrow either. Grandzilla Cindy canceled out on her visit with her daughter yesterday and now, Casey's brother Lee just might not show up for his scheduled visit tomorrow. And Cindy is apparently backing off the plans for the birthday party for Caylee. And, according to Cindy, the gas cans have fingerprints on them that aren't Casey's or the rest of the Anthony family. Uhm.. I think I'll wait until the investigators announce something like that. Cindy hasn't exactly been truthful so far, why the heck would she start now?

Is there any mention of a car seat or child restraint still in the car? And with 225,000 as a reward don't you think someone with real information would come forward.

Thank you Anakerie, for this great site. It's nice to have a place to discuss so many topics. Deb in KS

To be honest, I don't know if the car seat was still in the car. I've seen conflicting reports on that, so I guess no one but the grandparents and the investigators know. Well, Casey would know as well. I agree about the reward being an incentive for someone with information to come forward. Apparently the right person hasn't called yet. Darn it!

I'm glad you enjoy my blog.. Feel free to comment anytime! :-)

Okay, now the bounty hunter is going to help get this Casey person released. Why? Will she lead the police to Caylee? If my grandchild was missing, there is no chance that I would be thinking to remove bamboo. First Casey says her child is in danger. She is in protective coustody in jail. What,, the danger is no longer a problem. Okay fine let her out of jail. Then put her in a state institution. I do wonder how the Anthony's are paying bills etc.. For over 2 months they have been in front of the media. One has to wonder who will be in danger once Casey is released. All anyone wants is the truth. If drugs are involved can she be charged for that at this point. The owner of Fusions "won't even let anyone in if they have a cigarette behind an ear" But gang signs are in several pics from that club. This is truely an upsetting situation. Deb

Each day that passes, is a day further away from this beautiful missing child. This rude, and unprofessional cowboy from California is interferring as much as the Anthony family. Casey spent most of her first free day, much further away from the 150 ft. to be with her lawyer. My interest is in a little three year old child. At this point, I think anyone, all family, bounty hunters, and all who continue to lie about this case, should all have some kind of charges against them. There are so many missing children out there. Each deserves just as much coverage as Caylee is getting. It seems to me the focus is now again on mother Casey. 9 weeks is a long time to be missing. How does this 22 yr old girl, live her life like nothing is wrong. You hold the answers and only the truth can come from you.
