ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The grandfather of a slain Florida toddler is in a hospital after he was reported missing and sparked concerned that he might be suicidal.

Police spokesman Jimmie Flynt said George Anthony was found at a Daytona Beach motel early Friday morning with a note that indicated suicidal thoughts.

He was then taken to Halifax Health Medical Center of Daytona Beach, where spokeswoman Salina Wang said he would be admitted after being observed. Anthony was in stable condition.

Flynt said investigators found Anthony by locating signals from
his cell phone and a description of his car.

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

The child wasn't reported missing for nearly a month after she vanished.

Casey Anthony, who has claimed that a baby sitter kidnapped
Caylee, was notified of her father's condition on Friday morning.

    I have always beleived that this man knows exactly what happened to caylee and that he may be the one that killed her. Her body was found just down the street from his and his shed was supposdely broken into at about the same. time this case has a lot of questions to be answered.
