Caylee Anthony Still Missing … Independent Volunteer Caylee Search Team Find Possible Evidence (Clothing, Backpack)


Could this be a break in the case? Could it be potential evidence recovered in the Caylee Anthony_wherecase of missing 3 year old Caylee Anthony?

Caylee Anthony has been missing since June 9, 2008; however, not reported missing until July 16, 2008. With all the recent media attention being on Casey Anthony being bailed out of jail by those seeking PR and attention and Casey’s family, one would hope that the MSM might focus their attention on the missing toddler and covering the searches for Caylee Anthony.

An independent volunteer search team for Caylee Anthony may have discovered evidence in the case of missing Caylee Anthony. Orange County, FL deputies were called to the scene and carried away bags of potential evidence. According to one of the volunteer searchers, some of the clothing articles collected, “were girls clothing and they matched the sizes on the search warrant.”

“We found some things in this area … blue jeans, size five from express,” Derrick Miller.

Miller and others were searching just a few feet from the parking lot of the Econ Soccer Complex on Yates Rd.

I found a couple of book bags, some other articles of clothing, some female clothing, a female shoe,” said Wyatt Locke.  “We did find a few articles of children’s clothing yes,”  Locke added.

More pictures and comments below.

As the case of missing Caylee Anthony has gone, any potential evidence may be deemed valuable in figuring out where and what happened to Caylee.

Coincidence?  Maybe, but Locke says some of the clothes are size five.  It was size five clothing that investigators removed from Casey’s closet.  Caylee’s grandfather, George Anthony, also told detectives that the last time he saw the missing girl, she was carrying a backpack.

      Such a sweet little thing…God Love Her…

      Casey is crazy and probably did something bad to her…I just hope they get the answers….I am afraid that she is dead….!!!!

      Who in their right mind would not report their daughter missing and be frantic….??????

    3. A New Girl on August 17th, 2008 5:53 pm

      If Casey Anthony is released on bail this week, this Mother better start talking and ACTIVELY doing something about Caylee being missing…..Since she is still a person of interest…..let’s also hope the FBI forensic evidence gets processed quickly so more pieces of the puzzle can be linked together.

      So, here’s an obvious question….Why didn’t Casey do something BEFORE??? Why wait so long to go to anyone for help or even report her daughter missing immediately ? Another clue something is very wrong right there!

    4. god bless little caylee on August 17th, 2008 6:16 pm

      Unfortunately, I am not sure the items found will really pan out as matching with the Caylee Anthony case. Since there is a soccer field close by, I am afraid someone may have simply stole these items & placed them in the woods after taking money or valuables from the bags. Maybe they were stolen from a locker room or something. However, with this being said…I REALLY HOPE it’s a break in the case. I’d love nothing more than for little Caylee to be found alive and unharmed.

    5. Maggie on August 17th, 2008 9:08 pm

      I won’t hold my breath on the items found, but I will hope they do lead to more answers.

      Who waits 31 days to report your child kidnapped? Why would you go next door, 2 days after your child is kidnapped, to borrow a shovel to cut down a little patch of bamboo so your child won’t get hurt on it..when they have already been kidnapped for 2 days and you haven’t reported it?

      The grandmother runs the show it seems, she never even lets the grandfather talk much. When he did talk, she kept putting words in his mouth. Nothing makes sense to anything they say. You call the cops to your house on June 24th to report 2 cans of gas stolen on June 22nd..yet you don’t tell them your grandaughter has been missing for 8 days. The grandmother says the car smells like a dead body, that turns into pizza.. They did an experiment with pizza in the trunk for the same amount of days and it had dried up. The cop said the car smelled like a dead body. I trust him on that one..Days later you bring up a ladder at the pool ..and change the date to the photos come out of Casey out partying and living it up 4 days after her daughter is kidnapped. Phone calls that never happened.. She could’ve contacted the FBI 2 months ago and told them she was in fear.. The father was a cop, Pleaseeeeeee he knows how to get the cops to come to the house and he knows how investigations work. They’ve had a 31 day lead over the cops.. I don’t care who speaks for them now..this stinks as bad as Natalee Holloway’s case.. I am just glad little Caylee has the FBI and cops on her side unlike Natalee Hollway in Aruba. I don’t believe little Caylee is alive, but I do believe she is in a better place where she can no longer be harmed. What adult was looking out for little Caylee? This is so pathetic.. There is this mysterious babysitter,,who just happens to have the same name as another woman who looked at an apartment at that building.. pleaseee.. noone’s ever saw the babysitter, talked to her, or ever heard Caylee talk about her… phone calls on the phone’s made to her.. Why would you need a babysitter every day when you didn’t even work and who was paying this nonexistant(imo) babysitter. Just like the mysterious man that Stacy Peterson ran off with…or the 2 black security guards who got Natalee..

      Sometimes I feel like this is a made for TV movie. Or a sick reality show. It all seems so insane. I’d like to ask Casey a few questions:

      How many times have you left Caylee w Zenaida?

      Did you have her phone #?

      You had to call her to make the plans to babysit, so on what day did you contact her and from what phone did you call?

      What was her phone # at the the time?

      When and how did you discover she was missing?

      What day were you supposed to pick her up?

      Did you call and there was no answer?

      Did you go to where she was staying at a scheduled time to pick her up and noone was home?

      At what time did you figure something was wrong?

      Why would you think Zenaida kidnapped her?

      Why wouldn’t you think maybe they were in an accident or something happened to them?

      If Zenaida was so threatening & dangerous why did you leave your child with her to begin with?

      When you decided to do your own investigation why did you go to clubs to look for her?

      Wouldn’t she have to have a babysitter to go to a club?

      Why would she go where you would likely be?

      Why was your babysitter such a secret that you didn’t tell your boyfriend or parents you were leaving your daughter with her?

      Did Zenaida drive a car? What type?

      Did you leave clothes with her for Caylee?

      Can you describe what she looks like?

      These are simple questions Casey if you can’t answer them than can you explain why??

    8. brenda on August 18th, 2008 8:49 am

      Dear Scared Monkeys…Good news for you (free advertising kinda/sorta) this site has been linked twice now from Orlando Sentinal this morning which is doing the type of coverage of Caylee you did for Natalee. Thought you’d like to know.

      I did reply to one of them and mentioned SM IS a good site I would recommend. HOpe that’s A-OK with you :>) The more posters we get the merrier (did I spell that right?)

    9. Rusty Bridges on August 18th, 2008 9:45 am

      If these are the little girls belongings, they where most likley planted by someone to throw off the investigation.

    10. Richard on August 18th, 2008 12:38 pm

      An article out today says that this discovery was largely the result of bloggers in the area agreeing to do something practical.

      A demonstration that blogs actually can get people together who want to take action.

    11. pj on August 18th, 2008 1:07 pm

      I still believe that the tatoo bella vida and the neighborhood in orlando have some significance. There are a few places in between the parents house and the bella vida neighborhood that could have been accessed within the hour Casey had the shovel. I think she dropped the other stuff, clothing, plastic, etc.. after the fact… its an insane idea to connect the dots, but somehow, i hope someone is successful. I pray for whoever finds that childs body.

    12. pj on August 18th, 2008 1:09 pm

      i still believe that the tatoo casey got recently, bella vida and the neighborhood in orlando, have some significance…sadly, there are a few remote areas in between her parents house and that neighborhood that she could have accessed in the hour she had the shovel…. i think the clothing and plastic, and backpacs were dumped later…. sadly

    13. Diane on August 18th, 2008 1:22 pm

      Great questions by maryd! I would like to know the following also:
      1.George, when Casey & Caylee left your house the day you said they had their backpacks and Casey was dropping Caylee off with the babysitter because she had to go back to work…work where? She doesn’t even have a job!
      2. Cindy, if you REALLY wanted to find Caylee, you would stop believing all of Casey’s ridiculous lies.
      Your daughter is known to be a compulsive liar. She has done nothing to help find her daughter. she will continue to tell her lies until the end.
      3. Casey, why didn’t you just give your daughter to your crazy parents & let them raise her & you could go out partying everynite without any worries about your daughter….Oh, yeah, that’s what you did!
      4. Is there anyone else out there who thinks George is really weird?
      5. This family seems to go along with all of Casey’s lies. If they think that they will get her to tell them what happened to Caylee, they are sadly mistaken. People like Casey have no conscience & therefore would never tell the truth, even if an eyewitness had seen her harm her daughter.
      6. It is obvious that Cindy tries to do the talking, because she seems to be afraid of what George will say…hummmmm?
      7. I think the family knows that Casey did something to harm Caylee, but they want the media to believe that they are supporting & believing their daughter. Casey seems very intelligent for a
      22 year old. She is very manipulative & cunning.
      I think her family & friends should stay away from her so they do not get implicated in this whole mess! If she were my daughter, i would not play along with her games! She needs some tough love & I don’t know how her parents can bear to even look at her, because I think they know that she killed her daughter. I do not believe it was an accident because of her seemingly normal partying behavior after Caylee’s disappearance.
      Someone out there knows or suspects something. I hope that person will come forward & tell what they know.

    14. A New Girl on August 18th, 2008 3:14 pm

      #5 Also points out and asks one of the first few troubling questions that also came in to my mind when this story first broke into news…. Why would this girl need a babysitter during the day when she didn’t even have a JOB?? and, also- why would kidnapping even be on the table—-what would the motive be there?? Certainly not a monetary one since she has no assests and had to live with the parents.

      Just none of it makes sense. The forensic evidence that may lead to something is any evidence left in the car….funny how FBI is keeping quiet on that. Also, sadly- it’s back to the same old thing on any manslaughter or homicide case….very difficult (almost impossible) to move forward with any homicide charges without a BODY. Then, there would have to be forensic evidence present that can link any of the suspects to a possible scene of the crime–which also is unknown at this time.

      The whole family seems strange and whack-a-doodle to me! Brother seems like the only normal one, and in the beginning- he was not trusting at all of any of what little information Casey was giving out in the beginning.

    15. maryd on August 18th, 2008 8:32 pm

      Has anyone ever wondered if with all the attention, fame and money that comes out of these high profile missing person cases; that someone sooner or later may just fabricate a missing person report? Something like these bogus law suits people are contriving. If their cunning enough they stand to make tons of money. Has anyone ever wondered “what if,” Caylee was not really missing? and when the time is right she will reappear. Than the mother will be exonerated and the book deals and TV shows will be endless. $$$$$$…..just a thought. Of course the thought here remains, why the decomposition odor??

    16. maryd on August 18th, 2008 11:44 pm

      And one other possibility, has anyone checked Casey for a brain tumor? Reading about her behavior, she seems to either have brain damage, is psychotic, or some brain syndrome. I read in an affidavit that her brother once brought her to the hospital for a siezure. There can be many causes for those, sometimes drugs. I know my mother acted very strange before being diagnosed with a brain tumor, I thought she was losing her mind. I really think she should have a scan of her brain. Maybe she doesn’t even remember what she did with her daughter.

    17. Scarrlett on August 19th, 2008 5:15 am

      #13…I think the whole family is quirky and now they hired a spokesman who is even weirder,if that is possible!!

      #14…I do not trust anyone in the family as they seem to be protecting the wrong person and to heck with Caylee. JMO

      And who is the father? It is NOT Jesse. That is who Cindy thought the father was even though Casey lied and said it was a boy they never met, spoke to or caught a glimpse of. Sound familiar? Maybe he is with the nanny in Caseys’ imaginary world.

    18. BUN on August 19th, 2008 6:27 am

      Now Casey is to be bonded out of jail by some camera hound. Do you feel like you are at some 3 ring circus? I hope some other charges can be applied before Casey is let go to find the “real culprit”…this sounds very familiar.

    19. Amanda on August 20th, 2008 11:50 pm

      I know that everyone is interested in hearing about what is going on with Casey, and her soap opera life….it really is disturbingly addictive. However, I would rather hear about updates on the search for Caylee. I want to hear about where groups are searching, if they are finding anything, etc. I would rather hear that a search party went into woods, searched everywhere…in the trees, under brush, dug up any loose dirt, and that they didn’t find anything….and then do a quick, to the point update on Casey’s craziness. I guess I just want to hear that people are constantly searching for this child. I want to hear about DNA, items that have been seized by the police, etc. I would honestly rather not hear about Casey again, until she provides some sort of truth, or simply tells everyone where this little girl is. This is driving me crazy. I guess I am spoiled by watching CSI and Law & Order, etc., where they solve the case in an hour. (I realize that is not reality, but it would be nice.) I don’t say this often, but GOD Bless Caylee Anthony, and please keep her safe.

    20. Cheryl Fontenot on August 21st, 2008 5:54 pm

      Yes, I agree. We need to know more about the leads from dreams and psyhic’s and if anyone has followed up on some of them or whether they will at some point in time.
      Surely there are some of them with similar information and the volunteers can start with those. I feel like I know all the streets and areas by heart from the maps of the vicinity.
      Put everyone’s dream facts etc. together and prioirtize those that are consistent with each other and start there. Do a map of where they have checked and rule out some of those areas. Caylee needs to be found. Casey wanted the attention and she has gotten it and Caylee is forgotten. If they can do a psychic evaluation on Casey then they must believe in psyhic abilities and that we indeed have a psyhic nature.

      I have probably spelled psyhic wrong—brain freeze???? Drew a blank.

    21. Loving Mother on August 21st, 2008 6:30 pm

      What mother does not report her daughter missing from day one? If you thought someone took your child you would(If you were a real mother)be worried sick. Casey knows something about her daughter missing. I can’t believe they let her out of jail.

    22. lisa flores on August 24th, 2008 3:51 pm

      I think it was wrong for this bounty hunter and this bond agent to post bond and release this woman (who only cares about herself)from jail. She made the decision not to call the police when her daughter disappeared she should pay for her actions. I feel these men are infatuated with her, and would not do this if she was not an attractive woman. Everyone should be out searching for Caylee, dead or alive she deserves more. I hope if she did dispose of little Caylee’s body that with all the rain in Florida that her body will appear, and if she was kidnapped, I hope she is found quickly THIS IS TAKING TOO LONG.

    23. adrianna on August 26th, 2008 10:07 pm

      looks like what we have here is a house full of murders,those grandparents are fake,that girl is crazy and so are her parents,the believe all of her lies,could that be because there as guilty as she is,after all someone said who waits a month to report there grandchild missing.

    24. mel on August 27th, 2008 2:00 pm

      After reading the 400 pages of evidence, I am convinced that this poor baby is in the landfill. Maybe that’s why this mother didn’t report her missing for 31 days. The white car that smelled like decomposition was left at the amco next to a dumpster. Casey Anthony has similiar personality traits to Scott Peterson and Mark Hacking.

    25. kim on September 1st, 2008 7:00 pm

      Perhaps thats why i have heard that many photos of Casey and Caylee have been deleted from some of their websites…so photos could not be matched with clothing evidence that is or may be found. I hope the cops took photos from the home or from these websites while they were still available.

    26. hope on September 4th, 2008 8:05 pm

      How could anybody go a month without calling he police saying that their child is missing. I really hope that they find Caylee’s body so people all over can have some closure when they find her

    27. Michelle on September 5th, 2008 8:38 pm

      what address exactly do you go to and what time to volunteer? Does anyone know. This has my stomach in knots… Everyday I hope she is found. Please let me know.

    28. sue on September 8th, 2008 7:10 pm

      I wonder if casey killed her daughter to keep her mom from retaining custody? I would like to know where they got the money to bail her out and what is happening to the money that people have donated to the caylee anthony fund?

    29. MMM on September 29th, 2008 8:12 pm

      Did Casey tell one of her friends that her parents were going to give her their house soon ?

      Could it be possible that Casey’s intentions were to kill her parents . From all that we’ve learned in this case, all things point to Casey doing something bad, really bad to Caylee.

      I hope that Caylee is alive and well somewhere. God rest her tiny little innocent soul if she isn’t.

    30. Eric on December 12th, 2008 7:38 pm

      Why the f*** did Casee Anthony do this? Why? I couldn’t do that to a little 3 year old girl like that! Oh my f***ing goodness! This gets me so f***ing p***ed off! D***!

    34. Audrey on November 27th, 2009 7:33 pm

      If Casey wanted to be a parent than why in the world would she want to murder her child??? I think there’s no reason why she did want to become a mother. Casey is a crazy freak and she can die herself for all i care!!!!!! :(

    35. Audrey on November 29th, 2009 1:12 pm

      Casey is a messed up bi(edit), that’s right!!! Caylee Anthony was a sweet kid and there wouldn’t be one damn thing in the universe that she would of done wrong. heres to you, casey; why don’t you go shove those stupid lies of yours and SHOVE EM’ UP YOUR A(edit)!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    37. jadra on June 9th, 2011 7:53 pm

      i think that casey dosen’t have a soul.They should kill her and let it hurt

    38. lea on July 3rd, 2011 2:01 pm

      i think what casey did was pretty sad and depressing well not even to her. i think that she doesn’t have soul because if she did she would want her daughter to live. and from what i know she is not going to go up to heaven. everybody knows where she is gonna go. what kind of person kills there child so that they can go out places with her friends and do what ever she wants and leaves caylee with some one else i wonder how teared up the other side of the family is

      God Bless You Caylee

    39. Erica on July 5th, 2011 5:37 pm

      I cant believe she got away with a not guilty sentence on killing her daughter. WTF. This is pissing ALOT of people off. Casey your a sick bitch. R.I.P Caylee are with the lord and your “mother” cant hurt you there anymore.

    40. Destiny on July 8th, 2011 5:37 pm

      what a crazy b****. what kind of psychopath murders their own child? this is one f***ed up world.

    41. Destiny on July 8th, 2011 5:38 pm

      this is just sad.a beutiful 2 year old murdered. it is just horrable. how can people stand to kill a child period .just horrable! shame on you casey

    44. courtney on July 11th, 2011 6:39 pm

      i think caylee’s so called mother needs to pay for what she has done to her beautiful baby girl! i know for a fact that she killed her i can feel it in my heart! how could any mother just wait and not report her 2 year old daught missing for a month unless she were guilty! the sticker that was on the tape on caylee’s mouth was a heart the police found thesame exact syickers in her home! she was placed in her blanket! the smell from her mothers car trunk was found possitive that it was a rotting body! her mother lied to caylee’s grandparent’s about her having caylee and she lied to the police! how is that not obvious that she is beautiful caylee’s murderer!! i mynot be any relation to caylee but i would have gladdly taken her as my own instead of her being killed!! it breaks my heart to hear about her everyday and know she could have had a wonderful life! i will always remember caylee as a beautiful lovinglittle girl and i will love her until the planet is nolonger here! i love you baby girl! i know god will take very good care of her!
