Padilla Offered $200K To Allow Filming Of Search For Caylee

Monday, November 17, 2008

ORLANDO -- News 13 has learned bounty hunter Leonard Padilla is considering an offer that would pour $200,000 into the search for Caylee Anthony.

Padilla told News 13 he has been contacted by a company that is willing to fund the search effort if Padilla is willing to give them exclusive rights to film the search effort.

The bounty hunter said he has not made a final decision on if he is willing to take the offer.
Padilla has returned to California, and will stay there for the next couple of weeks. He said he will return to Orlando and do a thorough search of the Little Econ River, where he still maintains he is "sure" Caylee's remains are in that water.

Spokeswoman: Anthonys Have Evidence Caylee Is Alive

Meanwhile, a new spokeswoman for the Anthony family said George and Cindy Anthony are putting together a new group to help search for their granddaughter.

Spokeswoman Michelle Bart told News 13 Monday they have legitimate tips and evidence that Caylee is still alive. (sigh...)

Bart and the Anthonys plan to share the latest information they have in a press conference sometime in the latter part of the week.

Mark NeJame, attorney for the Anthonys, is also expected to be present, as well as members of the Kid Finders Network and a private investigator who has been working with the case since the very beginning, following up on viable leads, including one Caylee sighting in Gainesville.
Caylee's grandparents, George and Cindy Anthony, have criticized Padilla and other groups for searching for a body instead of searching as if Caylee was alive.

The Kid Finders Network was scheduled to be at their tent in Orange County from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday after a disappointing volunteer turnout over the weekend.

The tent was shut down early Sunday because of a lack of volunteers. Officials with the group said they are always in need of both money and volunteers.
