Missing Central Florida Toddler Turns 3

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A missing Orlando toddler has not been found in time to celebrate her birthday with her family.

Detectives and family members had hoped Caylee Anthony would be home by Saturday, her third birthday. She was reported missing July 15, and her disappearance has garnered national attention.

Authorities say Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey Anthony, lied to them and didn't report her daughter missing for more than a month.

Casey Anthony, who is being held on $500,000 bail, is facing charges of child neglect, making false official statements and obstructing a criminal investigation.

    My name is Amanda Dollmont. I am the age of eighteen. I have been keeping up with this story scene the day it appeared on Nancy Grace. As i came home from school and saw the child's picture on the television my heart sank and eye filled with tears. It is very hard and shameful to know or even think about the mother doing this to their own child. To me a woman this cruel does not deserve the respect to be called a mother. In my personal opinion i think she should get life without parole, and i think she should sit in a cell for the rest of her days thinking on how she could have watched her little one grow up with love and joy. To the family of Haley, I am very sorry and i wish for the best. To Haley that does not know me you are in my prayers as well as the family. Amanda Dollmont

    I have been keeping up with this story..It is ashame how a mother could act so stupid..Claims she does not know any thing..I say go ahead and charge her and put her in with the rest of the women who have fought for their children and see if they can get the truth out of her...Take her out of the spot light..Cause there is no way she just lost this child...Why don't you stop telling your lies and tell the truth..Cassey..Cause the truth will come out sooner or later...GOD KNOWS AND YOU CAN NOT HIDE FROM HIM..You do not deserve to be call MOTHER...
