A spokeswoman for the Daytona Beach hospital says George Anthony will be admitted to a hospital room after being observed. Anthony was found early Friday at a Daytona Beach hotel after he was reported missing for several hours.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood told reporters that Anthony sent text messages to family members indicating he "wanted to end his life."

Anthony's daughter, Casey Anthony, has been charged with killing Caylee. The child wasn't reported missing for nearly a month after she vanished.
