The father of Casey Anthony, George, was taken in to custody under the Florida Baker Act.  He reportedly had threatened suicide and was “missing”. He can be held up to 72 hours while his mental health is evaluated.

(CNN) — The grandfather of slain Florida toddler Caylee Anthony was taken into custody early Friday after being reported missing late Thursday, sheriff’s deputies and a family attorney said.

George Anthony has defended his daughter, Casey, who is accused in the death of his granddaughter, Caylee.

1 of 2 Detectives found George Anthony at the Hawaiian Inn Hotel in Daytona Beach at 2:30 a.m. ET Friday, said Jeff Williamson, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s department.

Brad Conway, the Anthonys’ attorney, told CNN affiliate WFTV that Anthony was taken into custody under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows the state to hold people involuntarily pending a psychiatric evaluation.

These are recent comments from the attorney for Gerald and Bethann Eubank who have filed a lawsuit against Nancy Grace and CNN.

Deratany has offered a $100,000 reward Wednesday for any information that helps find Trenton Duckett .

It is hard to describe how utterly despairing it was to be named ‘arguidos’ and subsequently portrayed in the media as suspects in our own daughter’s abduction- and worse. It has been equally devastating to witness the detrimental effect this status has had on the search for Madeleine.  Finding Madeleine

It was beleived by many that Trenton’s mother Melinda, may have played a role in his disappearance but she took her own life, so it may never be known for sure. In the case of Caylee Anthony, according to the grandmother in an interview on NBC’s “Today”, show, the mother may know who has her.

Casey’s mother Cindy Anthony said Monday on NBC’s “Today” that Casey should be released from jail so she can help with the investigation.

“I know Casey knows who has her,” Cindy Anthony told NBC. “I know Casey doesn’t know where they’re at right at the moment. But I don’t know anything else right now because I can’t speak to my daughter. And we’re trying to get that changed very quickly.”
