Missing Girl's Mother Won't Have Bail Withdrawn

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A bounty hunter who helped free the mother of a missing Florida toddler says he won't withdraw her bail - as long as she remains safe.

Bounty hunter Leonard Padilla met with Casey Anthony's attorney Friday. Padilla says he told Jose Baez he feared for Anthony and her family's safety. Baez wouldn't discuss the safety concerns.

Withdrawing Anthony's bail would've forced her to return to jail.

Anthony was freed last Thursday. Her family says that would help find missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony.

Caylee hasn't been seen since June but wasn't reported missing until a month later. Prosecutors say Casey Anthony is a person of interest in her disappearance. She faces charges of child neglect, obstruction and making false statements.
