Search for Caylee Anthony Temporarily Called Off … Suspended Due to Conditions and Water Levels


Search efforts temporarily suspended, not permanently …

The search by the Orlando Sheriff’s Department and Texas EquuSearch for Caylee Anthonymissing Caylee Anthony has been temporarily suspended. According to accounts, the conditions of the areas where TES is searching have a considerable amount of water present.

On Sunday, the group cited environmental conditions and concerns for stopping the search.

Texas EquuSearch leader Tim Miller said the volunteers cleared off the areas they had of interest the best they could, but he said when Caylee disappeared, those areas were very dry and now those areas are holding a considerable amount of water.

Scared Monkeys was able to talk to Tim Miller of Texas Equusearch this afternoon to get details from him directly. Tim states that the 1200 people who showed up yesterday to search for Caylee was impressive and inspiring. Tim Texas-EquuSearchMiller also stated that today’s news of the suspended search should only be looked upon as a temporary issue. As soon as the water resides TES and the Orlando LE will be back searching for Caylee. Tim Miller pointed out that because water levels are so much higher today than when Caylee Anthony went missing, it was necessary to postpone searching until levels were reduced to a similar level to the date in time when little Caylee disappeared.

Please note that the search being called off today is only temporary. With water levels being so much higher than they were when Caylee Anthony went missing, there is no alternative but to temporarily suspend the search.

The team of volunteers — which numbered in the thousands Saturday — is disbanding due to flooding conditions which director Tim Miller said has been preventing them from being able to properly search for the missing toddler.

During a 3 p.m. news conference with Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary, Miller he feared the searchers’ vehicles could possibly run over the body of Caylee Anthony if she was submerged under flood waters. Miller said he did not want to compromise any evidence.

Miller also stressed that the suspension of the search is only temporary, and that the group would return to find Caylee as soon conditions improve.

      Well, I am sorry the search is called off but the ones looking should not be put “in harm’s way” while someone who knows exactly where to look sits there with a stupid grin on her face and acts like her lips are sealed with superglue!!!

      I wonder if the police know what kind of drugs are in the anthony home. I would think Cindy is taking tranquilizers, maybe perscribed by a dr. maybe not. So Casey would then have access to the family medicine cabinet. She probably has her own secret stash in her bedroom. Maybe that is why she shows no emotion.

    4. Smish on September 7th, 2008 4:24 pm

      God bless you Tim Miller and Equusearch and all of the wonderful people who took the time to volunteer.You all are a very special group of people.
      I look forward to you all going back(water permitting)and looking for sweet little Caylee….if neccesary.
      Safe travels

      Cindy could acquire many medications from the hospital and have prescription drugs of her own….

      I think Casey used the chloroform to sedate Caylee so she didn’t have to be bothered with her…and maybe did the inhabitants for herself..or introduced them to the party club….

      - Unauthorized drugs in Anthony House

      drugs in the house!!

      drugs in the house !!!

      drugs in the house

    7. BUN on September 7th, 2008 5:14 pm

      Speaking of drugs in the house…wonder who tipped off police about George’s gun? Could it have been a family member afraid he would take out the protestors or maybe just shoot one of the family? He needs one of those tranquilizers I think.

    8. brie. on September 7th, 2008 6:38 pm

      The gun was removed as evidence…not as a hazard to the household…even though it should of been…!!!

      How does George deal with the fact that he has a criminal living in his house…knowing he was an homicide investigator……..

      I don’t blame them,, Ike looks to be a bad storm. Let’s home it dies out some..

      Casey: “What has been given, can be taken away (your freedom). Everyone lies (just you and your Mom) Everyone dies. (your poor child) ”

      Anyone think there’s very disturbing overtones here of the comment of the Kalpoes’ mother in Aruba: “I lie, you lie, we all lie”?

      And this in-jail, out-of-jail thing is disturbingly like Joran.

      Some of the parallels are spooky indeed.

      (Repeat of earlier post)

      TES has found those alive and deceased.

      Why does the family give off the attitude of being evil when they should be out searching and someone should be talking.

      This has become quite a mess. Hope someone continues to look out for Caylee, for Natalee and all those missing now and in the future.

      Kidnapping and human trafficking are something in the US that has been done in hushed talk, so to speak. It is really a problem… a real fire situation with drugs being the wood to help the fire.

      Many are missing in the US that aren’t even reported for some are afraid of the police.

      A real salute to Law Enforcement and to TES and the Monkeys!

    12. Carpe on September 8th, 2008 5:03 am

      I just think you all are being overly harsh
      with this poor family… now wait, hear me out!

      George is doing whatever it takes to find Caylee.

      It just so happens that his way is pounding in
      garden stakes with police crime scene tape wrapped around them, and punching the litle
      old sweet lady from Pasadena right in her
      door knocker!

      Dear Cindy says she is doing all she can to find Caylee. Her way of doing this is by calling all of the people who want to interview her about
      her missing granddaughter “maggots, leaches,
      and parasites.”


      They iz just like peas and carrots, baby! -Forrest Gump

      In Anthony Land it all works! It’s like bringing a hammer to a candlelight vigil.

      Beauford T. Justice is near my house, but he must remain on the sidewalk!

      I don’t want one toe on my driveway. I will make
      a citizen’s arrest.

    14. Joe on September 8th, 2008 6:52 am

      I believe there is more involved than high water levels in calling off the search for Caylee. All of the dry areas of interest have been searched? The public just starts to get involved in large numbers and the search just stops. People have come from other states to help and now its just go home! I admire all the people who have been searching for Caylee, but this explanation just does not hold water.

    15. A New Girl on September 8th, 2008 7:51 am


      Time is ticking away. Prosecutors are building their case…..noose is tightening. It must be so lover-ly trapped as a prisoner in your own house for the Anthony’s. Sure Casey & Cindy are continuing to get along just swell.

      What did Casey do with that baby girl??? Where is Caylee?

      Enjoy the hell that is yours alone….it’s only going to get worse. So bad, you’ll be wishing you weren’t even alive. You never gave her a choice! She had no voice!


    16. sandy on September 8th, 2008 7:56 am

      I drove down to orlando to the searchsite on saturday with hopes of putting little caylee to rest…. this is my question, is that the only place that is being searched just because her cell phone pinged there doesn’t mean that is where she put the baby… casey may actually have a little bit more common sense than that… also how much searching was done around hidden groves elementary and under the slab that was poored behind her house or in the dumpsite it just seemed strange to me that she would dump the body where the searchsite was versus her car being abandoned clean on the opposite side-her house being in the middle, does that make sense…. I hope she’s not sitting in the livingroom laughing knowing were looking in the wrong spot….

    17. Rusty Bridges on September 8th, 2008 8:19 am

      This whole family is a classic case study, what a bunch of sociopaths and enablers.

    18. Tristan on September 8th, 2008 9:50 am

      “As long as Casey Anthony is free these folks say they’ll continue to stand outside the home,” WOFL-TV reports.

      Yahhhhhh! Bring it…gonna drive ‘em mad!!!!

    19. Kathy w on September 8th, 2008 9:58 am

      I wondered if the chloroform was acquired by Cindy, she is or used to be a nurse. Maybe it was in the house or garage and Casey knew what it was but didn’t know how to use it etc. and that’s why she was looking it up on the internet.

      If Casey took Caylee’s dead body over by the airpor there’s many places full of water and alligators and other animals that would of destroyed her within the first week she was dumped out. I flew in to that airport a couple times and it has masses of water areas full of animals etc.

      I think Casey knew what she was doing . And now she just says nothing and waits.

      Whatever happened to the brother Lee? I think Lee knows and he’s voluntarily dropped from the radar. ?

      Although I have compassion for the family, I think Cindy and George know deep down the lying psychopath their daughter is because she has been that way all of her life and up to now, they have spent their life covering her lies and much more.
      I do feel sorry for them to a point.

      They just need to shut up and lay low and let everyone else do their jobs. Their still protecting their daughter and it is, as it prob. always has, made fools out of them to alot of friends and other people.

      I don’t believe they will ever find little sweet Caylee. God bless this little child.

    20. Joe on September 8th, 2008 10:03 am

      I believe Casey first buried the baby in the back yard of the Anthony home. How long it was there is only a guess, but long enough for the body to start to decompose. If she moved the body without help she either put it in a dumpster or in some secluded place she would be familiar with and not over a 100 yards from a road of some type. I don’t believe she would carry the body a long way into the woods. She would not have had a boat so the body would not be in the middle of one of the lakes.If she had help then the ocean is a good bet.

    21. mary on September 8th, 2008 10:03 am

      if you read the whole 400 page investigation it is obvious that casey did something to that baby and her father has been covering it up for her from the start.

    23. dgator on September 8th, 2008 11:56 am

      I agree with Joe, I believe the search was called off for some other reason. True the waters may still be high due to TS Faye, but I am thinking something else is brewing as to why the search was called off and I hope the Anthony’s get busted soon.

    24. Maggie on September 8th, 2008 3:09 pm

      Richard ..yep.. Nadira.. I lie, you lie, we all lie.. but what Mama Kalpoe didn’t say was most people don’t like who were last seen with a missing person, lie to her family, lie to throw off an investigation, lie about 2 men kidnapping and murdering the missing person, lie about where they took the victim, lie about her condition, lie about what she said, lie about who drove the car, lie about where they stopped, lie about being at the sloots the second night, lie about going home when the car is parked outside the police station, go meet with Paulus over and over or can’t remember and lie about what Paulus told them, lie about cleaning their car, lie about what time they got home, I could go on , but you know what I mean.. and the only one’s who would lie so much , is hiding something big.. Then Mos comes out and says they bugged the Kalpoes home and heard them talking about what happened.. One of them said the fact she is dead isn’t good in a chat session. One called a friend and said they couldn’t tell on the phone what happened, or they would get in trouble. Chat sessions of them talking about picking up American girls and what they were going to do to them. Who in their right mind believes 3 guys went out a half hour before closing time and moved in on one girl to drive her around an hour and let her sit alone on the beach 3am in a foreign country because that is what she wanted? To date,, Natalee has never been seen again since she was in the car with those 3. No evidence ever of being on the beach. I am sure Paulus probably helped make that big whopper the pool and making up the one about the 2 black guards.

      We all know Nadira got fired from stealing from her job.. I suppose next she will say I steal , you steal , we all steal..

      I love that picture Carpe has , I think it says I’m with effin stupid.. laugh everytime I seen it.

      I’ve actually believed all along Lee would be the one to break.. He has been the only one to me that seemed semi normal. It is a shame he is caught up in this.. all because of his sister. I really don’t have a clue how Caylee died..but I do believe Casey was responsible be it accident or not. The parents are as cuckoo as the daughter.. No wonder Casey has so many problems.

    25. misskatie on September 8th, 2008 8:28 pm

      it sickens me that these stupid grandparents… claimed to love caylee… and yet they are enabling this stupid daughter of theirs….to continue to lie…
      the poor baby didnt have a chance in that family.. with a bunch of lunatics!!!!!I am sorrry she is probably dead but she is probably better off in the arms of god….

      cindy is a nut
      her daughter a killer … self centered and jealous of the attention caylee got…
      listening to the 911 tapes cindy wanted casey arrested because she stold from her and she was worried about her missing grandaughter…THAT DIDNT LAST LONG
      now shes trying to retract her story…

      buncha idiots!!!!

      HAS ANYONE SEEN ALWAYS1???????????

      SM: Always 1 has been posting in the forum but a couple days ago she went on vacation. Something about a trip to Colorado (klaasend)

    26. misskatie on September 8th, 2008 8:42 pm

      if the bounty hunter made such a statement!!
      he was after all in the anthony home and spoke to the parents and casey.. she lied she told him nothing but their behaviour made him convinced that they are hiding the truth… I AGREE WITH HIM!!!

    27. misskatie on September 8th, 2008 8:43 pm

      thanks klaasend
      I had been gone over a month and havent seen her since I returned..
      good to know where she is
      thanks again
      SM: Good to see you back! :) (klaasend)

    28. Jackie in Ohio on September 11th, 2008 7:13 pm

      On Nancy Grace again tonight, Nancy, Leonard Padilla and the panel of attorneys all agree that George and Cindy are upset about their missing granddaughter Caylee, and our also victims. I disagree!!!!!!!!!!!
      Look and listen to their behavior and actions everyone! They lie, stretch the truth, cover for Casey and blame the media. They have not behaved like concerned, caring grandparents or parents. I strongly believe there is a lie in this family that Casey has over every one of them….incest?? Can anyone confirm if George Anthony is Casey’s biological father?? I read in another blog that he is her stepfather…hmmm

      I am a grandparent of 10, I would have reported my grandchild missing a.s.a.p. not days or weeks or mounths do you know what a.s.a.p. means or are you just ignorent George and Cindy are not true grandparents if they were there would be no area unturned, this whole family sickens me, I would not have ever let this EVIL WITCH back in my home, your main priority should be your granddaughter she depended on you. I pray god spares none of you,and I hope Caylee is found so she can have peace, no thanks to the EVIL ANTHONY FAMILY. As for Casey I hope you get yours in the big house. your family will have theirs the rest of there life and I pray you all see her face everyday for the rest of your life.I am a real grandpatrent in Holly Hill Fl.
