COPY-Mom of missing Fla. girl released on $500,000 bail

Associated Press - August 21, 2008 10:53 AM ET

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The mother of a missing Florida girl has been released from jail on $500,000 bail.

Casey Anthony said nothing as she left the Orange County jail Thursday. She faces charges of child neglect, making false statements and obstructing an investigation.

Police say she lied to them and didn't report 3-year-old Caylee missing for more than a month.

Caylee hasn't been seen since June. Her grandmother reported her missing in July.

Casey Anthony told investigators she gave her daughter to a baby sitter but they don't believe her.

Anthony's attorney, Jose Diaz, escorted her out of the jail under a black umbrella. Diaz got into a scuffle with a journalist, pushing him out of the way.
