ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS/WKMG) Newly released court and jail documents in the investigation of Casey Anthony, the Florida mom charged with murdering her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, show Casey's mother Cindy to be intensely supportive, and reveal her desire to "find" the girl whose body was located in 2008.

In a letter written July 21, 2010, Cindy Anthony writes "When spring comes and the trial is over we will find [Caylee] together," adding "I continue to seek her and continue to have hope that we will all be reunited soon."

Caylee's body was found in December 2008, about six months after she went missing, in a wooded area behind the Anthony family home. The remains were positively identified as Caylee nearly a year and a half before the letter was written.

The letter was among 1,000 pages of documents released Tuesday by the State Attorney's Office.

Cindy Anthony tells her daughter how beautiful she looked in court the week before and how nice it was to be able to see her face-to-face "for more than a brief moment." She tells Casey Anthony how sorry she is that she has to "continue to be put through this." She tells Casey that she has "never given up" on her, according to the documents obtained by CBS affiliate WKMG.

Casey Anthony is jailed on first-degree murder charges in the death of her daughter. Caylee was 2 years old when she was reported missing.

Anthony has pleaded not guilty and maintains that Caylee was abducted by her babysitter. The trial is scheduled to begin in May.
