ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The grandfather of a slain Florida toddler
has been located in a Daytona Beach hotel, shortly after
authorities reported he had gone missing.

Early Friday morning, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said
deputies found George Anthony at the Hawaiian Inn Hotel. He was
reportedly taken to a hospital for observation.

Anthony's daughter, Casey Anthony, has been charged with killing
her toddler, Caylee.

The case has drawn widespread media attention.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood told reporters that
George Anthony sent text messages to family members that indicated
he "wanted to end his life."
