Orlando, Fla. (AP) The lawyer for the mother of a missing Florida girl won't say whether he expects her to be indicted on homicide charges.

But attorney Jose Baez tells the “Today” show that he and 22-year-old Casey Anthony have been preparing for the worst.

Three-year-old Caylee Anthony was reported missing in July, but her mother tells police she hasn't seen the girl since June.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office said last week that Casey Anthony is a suspect in Caylee's disappearance, though she hasn't been charged. She has been charged with child neglect and making false statements.

Baez says authorities are giving up on their search for Caylee by trying to make a case against his client.

The Sheriff's Office has declined further comment on the case.
