Orlando, Florida - Cindy Anthony decided to call 911 three separate times when she had not seen her granddaughter for 31 days in the summer of 2008.

The following is a transcript of those conversations.

Cindy Anthony: "I have someone here who I need to be arrested in my home."

911 Operator: "They are there right now?"

Cindy Anthony: "And I have a possible missing child. I have a 3-year-old who has been missing for a month."

911 Operator: "A 3-year-old? Have you reported that?"

Cindy Anthony: "I'm trying to do that now."

911 Operator: "OK, what did the person do that you need arrested?"

Cindy Anthony: "My daughter."

911 Operator: "For what?"

Cindy Anthony: "For stealing an auto and stealing money. I already spoke to someone who said they would patch me through to the Orlando Sheriff's Department and have a deputy here. I was in the car and I was going to drive her to the police station, and no one is open. They said they would bring a deputy to my home when I got home to call them."

911 Operator: "So, she stole your vehicle?"

Cindy Anthony: "Yes."

911 Operator: "When did she do that?"

Cindy Anthony: "On the (June) 30. I just got it back from the impound. I'd like to speak to an officer. Can you have someone come out to my house?"

Another call featured the first words heard from the mother of the missing girl. She said she knows who has her daughter.  

Cindy Anthony: "I called a little bit ago to the deputy sheriff's and I've found out that my granddaughter has been taken -- she has been missing for a month. Her mother had finally admitted that she had been missing."

911 Operator: "What is the address you are calling from?"

Cindy Anthony: "We are talking about a 3-year-old little girl. My daughter finally admitted that the baby sitter stole her. I need to find her."

911 Operator: "Your daughter admitted that the baby is where?"

Cindy Anthony: "She said she took her a month ago and my daughter has been looking for her. I told you my daughter has been missing for a month and I just found her today. But I can't find my granddaughter. She just admitted to me that she's been trying to find her by herself. There is something wrong. I found my daughter's car today and it smells like there's been a dead body in the damn car."

911 Operator: "OK, what is the 3-year-old's name?"

Cindy Anthony: "Caylee, C-A-Y-L-E-E, Anthony."

911 Operator: "How long has she been missing for?"

Cindy Anthony: "I have not seen her since June 7."

Anthony's speech is then inaudible.

911 Operator: "Can you calm down for me for just a minute. I need to know what is going on. Is your daughter there? Can I speak with her? Do you mind if I speak with her?"

Casey Anthony: "Hello."

911 Operator: "Hi. Can you tell me what's going on a little bit?"

Casey Anthony: "My daughter has been missing for the last 31 days." 

911 Operator: "And, you know who has her?"

Casey Anthony: "I know who has her. I tried to contact her and I actually received a phone call today from a number that is no longer in service. I did get to speak to my daughter for about a minute."

911 Operator: "Did you guys report a vehicle stolen?"

Casey Anthony: "Yes, my mom did."

911 Operator: "OK, so there has been a vehicle stolen too?"

Casey Anthony: "No. This is my vehicle."

911 Operator: "What vehicle was stolen?"

Casey Anthony: "It's a 1998 Pontiac."

911 Operator: "We have deputies on the way to you for that, but now your 3-year-old is missing -- Caylee Anthony?"

Casey Anthony: "Yes."

911 Operator: "You lost her a month ago?"

Casey Anthony: "Thirty-one days (ago)."

911 Operator: "Who has her? Do you have a name?"

Casey Anthony: "Her name is Zenida Fernandez Gonzalez."

911 Operator: "Who is that, the baby sitter?"

Casey Anthony: "She's been my nanny for about a year and a half or two years." 

911 Operator: "Why are you calling now? Why didn't you call 31 days ago?"

Casey Anthony: "I've been looking for her and have gone through other resources to try to find her -- which is stupid."
