Casey Anthony made bond on the new check fraud and theft charges that were filed against her Wednesday by the Orange County Sheriff's Office.

The McDonald Bail Bonds agency posted the $2,700 bond late Wednesday. Therefore, Anthony will not have to appear in court Thursday morning.

However, the mother of the missing toddler will not be released from jail because her more than $500,000 bond for child neglect charges has not been posted.

Anthony's parents are expected to meet with Casey via video visitation Friday at 9 a.m. Her brother is expected to visit Saturday at 1 p.m.

The chemical is capable of putting someone to sleep, and it can be deadly if too much is inhaled.

Anthonys Meet With Mark NeJame

George and Cindy Anthony met with high profile defense attorney Mark NeJame Wednesday.

NeJame won't say what they discussed, but said for now, he has not been hired as their attorney.

He said the family is frustrated with the public and media for not focusing more on searching for the missing toddler.

Crews Continue Searching For Caylee

Crews spent the day Wednesday continuing their search for Caylee's body near Orlando International Airport.

Late Wednesday afternoon, a team with a group called the Body Hunters searched an area near OIA after they said one of their dogs hinted on a smell in the woods.

The group, which claims to also have psychic abilities, found a rolled-up carpet in the area.

As of now, there are no indications it is connected to the case.

A separate group, Texas EquuSearch, also continued their hunt for Caylee.

The group's founder was going to be pulling his team out of Central Florida, citing frustration with the family over a lack of information in the case.

However, they agreed to stay after Sheriff Kevin Beary offered more money and equipment to keep things going.

"We, in this community know what fuel costs are all about so, Tim, you'll be getting that check for $5,000 tomorrow morning so we can continue the search for Caylee, Beary said. "And again, we need credible information. That's all we've been asking for the whole time. Iif somebody has that information, they need to be contacting the Orange County Sheriff's Office."

Beary is also pleading with more members of the public to volunteer to help in the search.
