The mother of a 3-year-old daughter who has been missing since June 16 has been released from jail after a California bounty hunter posted her $500,000 bond. Casey Anthony, mother of missing toddler Caylee Anthony, returned to her parents’ home in Orlando today wearing a ankle monitoring bracelet.

Her bond was posted by Leonard Padilla of California who worked through a local bail bond agency.

Although she is a “person of interest” in the disappearance of Caylee, Casey Anthony has been charged with child neglect and making false statements to investigators.

Casey claims that she left her daughter with a babysitter on June 16. According to court documents, she told investigators that she did not report Caylee missing because she was conducting her own investigation. She said that she was afraid Caylee would be harmed if she contacted the police.

Police found that the apartment where she said she left her daughter with a babysitter had been vacant for months. Investigators also said that Anthony gave them a bogus employer, manager’s name and work telephone number.

Now Free to Talk?

Casey Anthony has been in jail for more than a month. On the advice of her attorney, she has not been talking to investigators and even stopped visits with members of her family, because those visits were being videotaped.

Padilla said he posted Casey’s bond because he believes that after she is home she will be free to talk and help her family located Caylee.

“It’s not about getting Casey out to make sure she feels better,” Padilla told reporters. “It’s all about the interest of finding Caylee. Hopefully, she will get us some information.”
