Mother of Missing Florida Toddler Leaves Jail

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The mother of a missing Florida toddler has been released from jail.

Casey Anthony walked out of the Orange County Jail on Friday morning, donning an ankle monitoring bracelet and a white T-shirt featuring her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony. She is charged
with child abuse and making false statements to investigators.

Caylee was reported missing in mid-July from Orlando. The girl hadn't been seen for a month before Anthony told authorities.

Detectives have said Anthony's trunk had contained a decomposing body and that it was likely her daughter's. However, no other charges have been filed against Anthony.

Prosecutors asked for a high bond, hoping Anthony wouldn't be able to get out. Two local bond agencies posted the $500,000 bond for her Thursday.
