Actual Caylee Anthony sightings are rare. That is, of course, if you don't count the ones called in by psychics.

working with the Anthonys, maintains the Orange County Sheriff's
Department is withholding key information. "There are in excess of
5,000 tips but they've only released about 1,000 and all of them from
