ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 26 (UPI) -- Lab reports in the case of a missing Florida girl appear not to show conclusively that Caylee Anthony is dead or that her mother killed her, experts said.

Prosecutors in Orange County released the results of tests from the FBI lab in Quantico, Va., and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The tests show signs that the trunk of a car used by Casey Anthony once held a body and found traces of chloroform were found there.

Casey Anthony, 22, has been charged with murder in the death of her 3-year-old daughter. She reported Caylee missing in July, saying that the little girl had been kidnapped by a babysitter a month earlier.

"Today's released information proves absolutely that there has never been and still isn't any connection whatsoever with Casey Anthony having committed any crime," her lawyer, Jose Baez, said in a statement Friday.

Baez said he, Casey Anthony and her parents all believe Caylee is still alive.
