Michelle Bart, a spokeswoman for Kid Finders, has stated that she will work on behalf of the family of missing 3-year-old Caylee Anthony after allegations last week that their former representative was cashing in on the media firestorm ignited by her disappearance.
Bart said that the girl’s grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony, will make a comment this week. She also stated that she will not discuss the legal case against Casey Anthony, but reporters can ask “anything that needs to be asked” regarding the search for Caylee.
If our discussion board is any indication of what people would like to ask them, this should be interesting. Hmmm…I wonder what they have to say?
From the Orlando Sentinel:
“As time went on, things started unraveling with the circumstances of their previous spokesperson,” said Bart, who runs Helping Heroes Inc., a Vancouver, Wash.-based public-relations company that works with nonprofit organizations.
Last week, the Anthony family’s attorney, Mark NeJame, accused former family spokesman Larry Garrison of hiding a $6,500 payment from NBC for providing photos of Caylee.
NeJame said the Anthonys fired Garrison. The former spokesman said he resigned because of the family’s erratic behavior.
Bart has already announced a news conference for this week, something she says “should have been done weeks ago.”
She said the meeting will include Caylee’s grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony; NeJame; the Kid Finders Network; and a private investigator who has been working on the case. Bart said they will discuss tips and findings in recent weeks that have led the Anthonys to think their granddaughter is still alive. Police have said they think the girl is dead.
“Hopefully, by the end of the week the public will understand why we’ve been searching for Caylee Marie,” Bart said. “We truly believe that Caylee Marie is alive.”
