Mom of Missing Fla. Girl Likely Returning to Jail

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The bounty hunter monitoring the mother of a missing Orlando toddler wants associates to withdraw her bail.

That would force Casey Anthony to return to jail, unless she could otherwise cover the $500,000 bail. Anthony was just freed last Thursday.

Her family said that would help find missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony, but bounty hunter Leonard Padilla says the 22-year-old mother hasn't cooperated at all. He also says he's gotten so many threats she and others would be safer in jail.

Detectives were meeting with prosecutors Thursday about new FBI lab test results. Authorities have called Casey Anthony the prime suspect in a probable murder case, but so far the highest charge she faces is child neglect. Caylee hasn't been seen since June.
