Two sightings of Caylee Anthony with blond hair in Georgia

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- The search for 2-year-old Caylee Anthony could be heading across state lines. Two tips have come in that Caylee was seen in Georgia.

Caylee’s grandmother, Cindy Anthony, said tips have come in to her personally and via a hotline they have set up, that a girl resembling Caylee has been seen in Sandy Springs, Georgia and Cornelia, Georgia.

She believes the child is with someone heading to Charlotte, N.C. "We know where she's at," Cindy Anthony told FOX News Thursday before pleading with the person she believes has the child to turn back. "Please don't take her further into the mountains. It looks like she's headed northeast in Georgia close to the North Carolina border. ... This is all very encouraging right now."

Her plea came after her husband, George Anthony, asked the public in an audio message for help in finding their granddaughter before her third birthday. She's been missing since June 9.

George asks for the public’s help finding the little girl who was last seen June 16. The message also says there is a $225,000 reward for information resulting in Caylee’s safe return by her third birthday.

As the search for 2-year-old Caylee Anthony continues, her mother remains behind bars at the Orange County jail.

Anthony, 22, is charged only with child neglect and lying to investigators. Circuit Court Judge Stan Strickland set her bond at $500,000 Tuesday, saying the law did not allow him to hold her without bail.

Her parents say they are still working on getting the bond for their daughter’s release and may soon visit with her. They are trying to get a video visit with Casey sometime next week. The reward was increased by an extra $100,000 on Wednesday through a donation by local businessman, Peter Benevides.

Caylee’s mother, 22-year-old Casey, remains in the Orange County Jail Thursday. Her parents are still trying to come up with 10 percent of the $500,000 bond required for her release.

Two different bond companies are talking with Casey’s parents to help release her from jail. Polakoff Bail Bonds and J & L Bail Bonds are located directly across from the Orange County Corrections Center.

Orange County detectives say that Casey remains the only person of interest in the case so far. Detectives continue to talk with several Zenaida Gonzalez’s in the area to see if she exists. Casey told police that Zenaida, or “Zanny” babysat Caylee for at least one year. So far however, police say none of the women they have talked to were indeed Caylee’s babysitter.

Casey is also being held in jail on two other disclosed holds. Police say these are considered to be “internal holds,” and by law their information is not released to the public.

Detectives spoke with the woman who says she saw Caylee at the Orlando Airport in early July. She told police she saw the little girl with a woman in her 30's or 40's who boarded a flight to Atlanta.

Investigators said they only knew about the tip after Casey's attorney, Jose Baez, spoke about it on FOX News. Casey's mother, Cindy, says she cannot always check all the messages they receive right away.

This worries investigators, who say that in missing child cases, seconds count.
If you have any information that could help police in their investigation to find Caylee, call the CRIMELINE AT 1-800-423 TIPS (8477). There are operators standing 24 hours each day to take calls.
