Missing Child's Mom Released

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The mother of a missing 3-year-old Orlando toddler has been released from an Orlando jail.

Casey Anthony appeared in court Tuesday on charges of uttering a forged check, fraudulent use of personal identification and petty theft of $100 or more. The 22-year-old mother posted a $1,250 bond set earlier in the morning.

Anthony's daughter, Caylee, was reported missing in July, about a month after she was last seen.

Detectives have said lab tests show Caylee's decomposing body was in her mother's car, and Anthony is their only "person of interest" in the girl's disappearance.

This is the third time Anthony has been arrested in recent weeks; in addition to various bad check charges, she is also facing a child neglect charge.
