UPDATED: George Anthony Threatens Suicide, Disappears
Friday, January 23, 2009 – updated: 6:16 am EST January 23, 2009
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- George Anthony, father of Casey Anthony, was reported missing, Friday morning after threatening suicide. He was later found at a Daytona Beach motel.
The Anthonys' attorney, Brad Conway, said George was OK. He was taken into custody under Florida's Baker Act which allows the state to hold people involuntarily pending a psychiatric evaluation.
The lead investigator in the case and several Orange County sheriff's deputies responded to the house of George and Cindy Anthony late Thursday night. His family had grown increasingly concerned when George missed a scheduled meeting Thursday afternoon.
"He had text-messaged family members that he wanted to end his life," said Chitwood.

This is so sad. George is another victim of Casey. I'm glad he was found before he could carry out his plans.

It looks like GA drove about 50 miles? Am I right?

I just read deputies used a GPS device to track his car.
I had not heard this part. Photo 8 of 10.

sympathy for Casey
Isn't there a chance if people (jury) feel sorry enough they won't want to deliver an insurmountable blow to the poor guy by sending his daughter away for life?
Is there a possiblity after a mental examination it could be said he isn't mentally fit to take the witness stand at Casey's trial?
I don't know...just spinning out the possibilities.

My heart breaks for George. It is 11:12AM on the East Coast and I expected Casey to call JB and tell him she wants to end this pain she has caused her dad and she wants to tell the truth confess and put an end to their suffering.
I guess not.
To George, Cindy and Lee - I am so sorry this happened to you and your family and to Caylee. I can't imagine what life is like without her.
Casey needs to confess.

in the video with the police chief he said they had used cell phone pings, which is why it took a minute to find him, because they're not completely accurate - they do not "pin point" someone exactly.
just chillin' with my own kind!

I think the turn around simply points to people having empathy for George's current situation. In fact, a lot of posters here have been nothing but sympathetic to the A's, despite the A's often seen unwillingness to cooperate to the fullest extent possible.
I also feel people here are not so cold to believe George deserves to be in this turmoil. No human being with a true blue beating heart wants to see anyone in this type of situation. Despite posters distaste for any of the myriad of upsetting information out there, George is a human being and deserves empathy, sympathy and prayers.
A good person can see past their own beliefs and suspicions and move on to say they wish someone better health and healing.

The weight of the truth is literally killing George inside. I think he wants to do right but has outside influences that wont let him. For his well being, I hope he lets everything out.

Here we go again...."Casey! What have you done???!!!!!!"
She's going to be pissed that suddenly the attention and focus isn't ON HER. Wonder what she'll do from the klink to get that back????
I'm sick about what Casey has done to this family, but I am also still so sick about what the family is doing to CAYLEE. I anticipated this, but was unsure if it would have been GA or CA.....
I'd bet my last dollar that CA is going to give GA a talking to about keeping up the lie WHATEVER THE COST.

I DO feel really sorry for George...
I think the two women in his life need to think about all this and change their attitudes.They need to back off and let him grieve.
