George Anthony who was reported missing was found early Friday morning at the Hawaii Motel on South Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach. He had sending text messages to his family saying “he wanted to end his life. Authorities were able to find him by tracking pings from his cell phone.
No drugs or weapons were found in Anthony’s hotel room early Friday morning. He had other items with him at the hotel, but details weren’t released. Those items are being turned over to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“We do know George Anthony is saying, ‘I don’t want to live anymore,'” Chitwood said.
Documents made public on Wednesday suggest Casey Anthony once joked about drugging Caylee.
A former boyfriend, Ricardo Morales, told investigators she had made jokes about giving Caylee baby medicine to put her to sleep, according to MyFOXOrlando.com. But he also said she seemed to have a normal relationship with her daughter.
VAIL, Colo. — The guy who ended up dangling upside down from a ski lift with his bare bottom whistling in the wind probably doesn’t want to hear any “ski bum” jokes. Vail Resorts said the 48-year-old man wasn’t injured and was rescued after about seven minutes. His name hasn’t been released.
Resort officials have said only that the man was trying getting on the Blue Ski Basin lift on New Year’s Day. They haven’t said what went wrong.
Resort workers stopped the lift, backed it up about 10 or 12 feet and rescued the man.
Bystanders snapped photos and posted them the Internet, showing a man who looks to be hanging by one ski boot, his ski pants and underwear apparently snagged in the chair and reaching no farther than his knees.
Vail spokeswoman Liz Biebl confirmed the photos on one site were in fact the victim.

The 4-day-old girl is being cared for at the Bengal Medical College, which is located on the outskirts of Siliguri, India.
“This is a very rare case, we are not sure if we can perform surgery to put her heart and liver back, but we’ll try our best,” said Miridula Chatterjee, a child specialist.
Last year, then 2-year-old Lakshmi Tatma, underwent surgery in Bangalore, India, to remove six extra limbs and a parasitic twin.
The surgery took 27 hours and Lakshmi has been able to live a relatively normal life ever since. Lakshmi’s surgeon spoke to FOX News’ Bill O’Reilly in June.

RATANPUR, Nepal — The teenage boy revered as a reincarnation of Buddha sat silently in the jungle as he blessed his devotees Wednesday with a light tap on the head, which they consider the touch of the divine.
His face was still, his long hair spilled over his white robe, and he never said a word.
The followers of Ram Bahadur Bamjan, 18, believe he has been meditating without food and water since he was first spotted in the jungles of southern Nepal in 2005, when believers say he spent months without moving, sitting with his eyes closed beneath a tree.
Bamjan re-emerged this week to meet his followers, who have come by the thousands to see him in the jungles of Ratanpur, about 100 miles south of Katmandu.
“I got a chance to see God today,” Bishnu Maya Khadka, a housewife, said after receiving Bamjan’s blessing Wednesday. “They say he is Buddha, but for me he is just God.”
Bamjan was expected to address his followers on Nov. 18 and then retreat again into the jungle for meditation, said Kamal Tamang, a Buddhist priest.
Bamjan received the pilgrims from atop a podium covered in yellow cloth and placed before a massive tree. He looked healthy and strong and showed no signs of starvation or dehydration.
Buddhism, which has about 325 million followers, mostly in Asia, teaches that every soul is reincarnated after death in another bodily form.
Some Buddhist priests have been reluctant to accept Bamjan as a true reincarnation of Siddhartha Gautama, who was born in southwestern Nepal roughly 2,500 years ago and became revered as the Buddha, or Enlightened One.
“Meditating without food does not prove that he is the reincarnation of Buddha,” said Min Bahadur Shakya of the Nagarjuna Institute of Exact Methods, a Buddhist research center in Katmandu. “There is much study needed to be done.”
The devotees who have flocked to visit him have fewer doubts. Colorful prayer flags fluttered and incense filled the air Wednesday as the pilgrims silently approached Bamjan, who was surrounded by a line of Buddhist monks.
“I have no doubt in my mind he is a God,” said Meg Bahadur Lama, a local farmer. “He has been meditating without food and water and no human can achieve such a feat. I used to hear about such miracles in the past but now I got to see one.”

Daniela Rossi, an archaeologist based in Rome, said the discovery of the monumental marble tomb of Marcus Nonius Macrinus, including a large inscription bearing his name, was “an exceptional find.”
She said it was “the most important ancient Roman monument to come to light for twenty or thirty years.”
The tomb is on the banks of the Tiber near the via Flaminia, north of Rome. Cristiano Ranieri, who led the archeological team at the site, said the tomb had long ago collapsed into the mud but its columns, roof and decorations were intact. Some parts of the tomb had slipped into the river, but had been recovered.
Marcus Nonius Macrinus, born in Brescia in northern Italy, was a general and consul who led military campaigns for Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor from 161 AD to 180 AD.
He became part of the Emperor’s inner circle and one of his favorites, serving as proconsul in Asia.
