ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- Parents Cindy and George Anthony and brother Lee all got the chance to talk to Casey Anthony for the first time Friday afternoon since she was arrested more than a week ago.

The jailhouse visits give the family new hope in finding two year old Caylee Anthony, who has been missing for more than a month

While helping with new leads, Lee said his sister is sticking to her original story, she is still saying yes, Caylee is alive. Caylee is okay.

Lee said Casey cleared up a couple of things that detectives thought were lies from the beginning, where Casey worked and the connection to a mystery babysitter named Zanaida. He said Casey worked at Universal Studios, but was a contract employee with Kodak, and later Colorvision, so no Universal records would show she worked there.

Casey told investigators she met Zanaida through two co-workers. She said one friend used Zanaida as a nanny for his son.

But Lee thinks investigators never followed up because they thought it was all a lie.

“Now we can actually verify these are real people,” he said “We need to contact them. Now we’re one step closer to finding this person that took Caylee.”

One thing Casey Anthony did not reveal to her family today was where her daughter is now. Her family still believes her when Casey says she doesn’t know.

I’ve never needed anybody to reconfirm my gut feeling, said Lee Anthony. “Casey said point blank Caylees okay, we need to find her, I don’t know where she’s at.”

The family plans to visit Casey again at the jail early next week
