Women With Same Name As Caylee's Alleged Babysitter Defend Themselves

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- Missing toddler Caylee Anthony's mother continues to say that a nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez took her child. So far, investigators haven't been able to find that woman.

But one woman in Brevard County with the same name says people have already found her. The name isn't uncommon, in fact Eyewitness News found nearly a dozen in Central Florida alone, enough to fill several sheets of paper.

Plenty of local women named Zenaida Gonzalez are having to defend their names as the search for Caylee continues. Casey Anthony says it's been six weeks since she saw her daughter.
She continues to tell investigators she left the little girl with a babysitter named Zenaida Gonzalez.

Eyewitness News found more than 400 women named Zenaida Gonzalez in Florida and it's turning life upside down for local women who share the name.

One Zenaida Gonzalez blogs on a website called Brevard County Moms. She was flooded with emails and phone calls asking her if she had anything to do with Caylee's disappearance, so she created a website posting to set the record straight that says, "I am not that Zenaida Gonzalez."

This Zenaida Gonzalez works in the PR department for UCF and didn't want to go on camera. Her blog usually averages about 50 viewers, but the post where she tells the world she is not Caylee's babysitter has been viewed nearly 3,000 times.

Investigators told Channel 9 it would take them three months to contact all of the Florida women named Zenaida Gonzalez, but they're not even trying anymore since Caylee's mom can't give them a picture, a phone number or even the address where she dropped her daughter off with the babysitter she used for two and half years.

Investigators are not convinced she even exists. Caylee's family believes the nanny named Zenaida Gonzalez does exist, even though none of them have ever met her.
