Caylee Anthony Search of the Century Over as Texas EquuSearch Suspends Operations (“I don’t think Caylee will ever be found”) … However, Bounty Hunter Padilla Continues Searches
The massive search this weekend for missing 3 year old Caylee Anthony started with all the energy, hope and optimism necessary to create the dream that 3 year old missing Caylee Anthony would be found. The search was expected to get thousands of volunteers in the Orlando, FL area for Caylee Anthony’s search. However, after what was billed as the “search of the century”, it appears the search for missing Caylee Anthony as been suspended by Tim Miller and Texas Equusearch after just 2 – 1/2 days of searching. Sadly the search has ended as quickly as it began. Tim Miller of Texas EquuSearrch was quoted as follows:
“I don’t think Caylee will ever be found. We have done all that we can do. We have thoroughly searched every inch of the targeted areas. Unfortunately, there is only one person who can bring this to an end and she’s not talking.”
Texas EquuSearch has suspended the search following Monday’s searches and has put the case on hold. According to reports 1500 volunteers showed on Saturday and 750 volunteers on Sunday to search for missing 3 year old Caylee Anthony
Miller says he doesn’t think Caylee’s body will ever be found. He told Channel 9 his donors and the families of other missing people have been pressuring him to end his massive search in Orlando and start helping with other cases in North Carolina.
“We are literally, because of this case, neglecting other families that really want our help” said Miller.
Miller also says EquuSearch is in debt. After the group’s two searches in Orlando, EquuSearch has spent more than $75,000 on equipment and staff.
The entire weekend turned out to be a disappointment. Not only were searchers unable to find Caylee, the turnout was much smaller than expected. Organizers had predicted up to 5,000 volunteers would show up for the weekend search, but only 1,500 showed up Saturday, and even less on Sunday.

In an effort to stop the 3 Ring Circus …. Judge may issue gag order.
A judge could rule as early as Monday on a sweeping gag order in the case against Casey Anthony, who has been charged with first-degree murder in the disappearance of her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee.
The order would restrict attorneys, witnesses, law enforcement and the Anthony family from commenting publicly about the case, which has made worldwide headlines. The purpose of the order would be to protect potential jurors from being influenced by pretrial publicity, Local 6 News reported.
