Attorneys for accused killer Casey Anthony are complaining about the excessive media coverage in Florida of their client. As most everyone is aware, she is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her young daughter, Caylee. They are seeking a change of venue for her trial.

While she and her family continue to generate “news”, some Florida missing children cases could use renewed coverage. The disappearances this year of, Haleigh Cummings from Satsuma, Fl along with missing Adji Desir from Immakolee, Fl. have faded from the headlines. Both remain missing with few updates of efforts to find them.

Recently the parents of missing Madeleine McCann were featured guests on Oprah to mark the second anniversary of her disappearance in Portugal yet Trenton Duckett who has been missing from Leesburg, Fl. since August 2006, receives little if any mention in the press.
