Orlando, FL– 27 year old Tracy E. Ocasio has been missing since leaving the Taproom Bar in Orlando at approximately 1:30am Wednesday.


Tracy, who resides on New Victor Rd, Ocoee, left the bar at “last call” and her car was found abandoned on Frankin Street in Ocoee. The homeowners on the property where the vehicle was found called Police saying there was a car parked there that did not belong to them.

Elizabeth Ocasio, Tracy’s Mother, is frantic:

“She’s missing. Nobody has seen her or heard from her,” said Ocasio.

“She goes there every Magic game, and she cheers for the Magic, and afterward, she texts everybody she knows and says, ‘Go Magic.’ Apparently, that didn’t happen after this game.”

“I honestly don’t think she would be going on her own. She was so involved in cheering for the Magic. She would definitely want to see the game tonight (Thursday).”

 Orlando police will not comment if they consider Ocasio's disappearance  suspicious or if she is in danger. But they ask anyone who has seen her to call police at 321-235-5300.

Ocasio is 5-foot-6, weighs 124 lbs., has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black tank top, jeans, a green and white hat, and a black hooded jacket.

Ocoee police Officer Lee Stephens confirmed his agency is the primary department investigating, and said detectives are "diligently" working the matter.

Stephens said no other details are being released publicly at this point.

Americans need to wake up..
Our girls are vulnerable and not invincible..

No girls go to bars or travel alone in Mexico.. There are reasons for that.

It just keeps happening... depressing.

Nut, not to answer for Edward, but Edward has done EXTENSIVE research on immigration/ illegal issues and subsequent crime, I believe he was just drawing a paralell.

To add, NOWHERE should women/girls leave a bar by themselves, ever. I am of the opinion they dont belong in one by themselves, but I realize that is not very contemporary. However, no one can argue it is the safe choice.

By way of an update, there is a OPD substation in this same location of the Taproom bar. There is surveillance of Tracy leaving the bar with a man whom police have questioned. This is entirely too quiet for me. A jurisdiction with a bit of egg on their face in a variety of cases needs to rethink the way they operate. Everybody knows I am pro LE, 100%, until your tactics give me pause. One word: Jenn.

Edward, here is  link to a book a Canadian journalist wrote on the human trafficking trade out of Europe.FYI, I didn't know where else to put it. You might be interested in this. Victor was at the church recently ( Ukrainian ) where the congregation members have close ties to Europe and he spoke of this one evening.

I did not mean to upset everyone with the comment..

I was just trying to make a parallel as Blink mentioned..

A great deal of abductions happen for women while alone in America doing such things as jogging alone, driving late at night alone, walking on beaches alone, going to and from bars/clubs alone even just going shopping alone..
 
Florida has a high rate of such things happening as does major cities throughout America.

I just think American woman need to take a moment and consider this.

I watch women jogging alone all the time.. I live far out in the country.. They are venerable to attack. Last year there were various parking lot abductions in the news.

sorry

Police are searching for a 27-year-old Florida woman who was last seen leaving an Orlando bar early Tuesday morning.

Police reviewed a surveillance video that showed Tracy Ocasio leaving the Florida Tap Room with an unidentified man around 1 a.m., MyFOXOrlando.com reported.

Ocasio's car was reportedly found abandoned in Ocoee, which is about 15 miles from the bar where she was last seen.

Officers would not release the name of the man who left with Ocasio or say if he is a suspect in the case, according to the station.

Friends and family of Ocasio stepped up search efforts on Sunday -- distributing more than 500 fliers with the woman's information.

Ocasio's parents said they plan to request their daughter's cell phone records with the hope of finding new leads.

Person of interest
arrested in missing
woman case

VALERIE BOEY | FOX 35 News

OCOEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A person of interest has been arrested in the case of missing Ocoee woman, Tracy Ocasio. Tracy was last seen on the morning of May 27, around 1 a.m., leaving the Florida Tap Room in MetroWest, after celebrating a winning Magic game. Surveillance video shows Tracy leaving the bar with a man named James Hataway.

On Monday, around 7 p.m., investigators searched Hataway's home on Lyle Street in Ocoee. It's a block away from where Tracy's Chevy Colbalt was discovered. They say Hataway told them Tracy gave him a ride home. However, what happened after that remains a mystery.

Officers say Tracy's wallet, keys and cellphone were missing from her car. They searched Hataway's home, but found only drug paraphernalia, for which he was arrested.

According to Sgt. Mike Bryant, there were no signs that Tracy was there. "We had cadaver dogs search this property as a precaution. Nothing at the house indicated she had been there."

Investigators say it's all suspicious. "He was cooperative to the point where she came to his house and left from there. When we got a little more into the questioning, he decided not to cooperate any more."

 

"I'm innocent," said Hataway, as he was escorted by Ocoee Police officers from a patrol car to the Orange County Jail. "She left," when asked where she went after they were last seen together. "I hung out with my father," he added. "We just hung out. She gave me a ride home."

"I think he knows more than he is saying," said Elizabeth Ocasio, Tracy's mother. "They had a warrant to search the house, because he was the last person seen with her," said father Joe Ocasio. "If he was not involved, then let it be. It is ironic that her car was parked only a block from where he (Hataway) lives."

Anyone with information should call the Ocoee Police Department.

From Orlando Sentinel
Bond denied for man questioned about missing Ocoee woman

An Orange County judge ruled this morning that James Virgil Hataway, questioned in connection with the case of missing Ocoee resident Tracy Ocasio, will remain in jail.

While determining his bail, Judge Heather Higbee questioned Hataway's prior juvenile conviction of kidnapping and bodily injury out of Hillsborough County.

"Prior history with traffic charges is one thing, but prior history with kidnapping charges is a different thing entirely," Higbee told Hataway's public defender.

She placed a $500 bond on the drug-related charges that landed Hataway at the Orange County Jail on Monday. However, Higbee said he must remain in jail because he already was out on bond in a different case.

Court records show Hataway had been arrested in April on criminal mischief charges.

Investigators said Ocasio, 27, was last seen leaving the Taproom bar on Raleigh Street in the MetroWest neighborhood at about 1:30 a.m. May 26. She had just left a Magic game, reports show.

Police this morning searched a dirt lot in the area of West Franklin Street in Ocoee after they arrested Hataway as a person of interest in the case.

"He is not a suspect in this case, but a person of interest because he was the last one to see her," Detective Mark Olson of Ocoee Police Department.

Olson said they had searched that area before, but brought in K-9 dogs this morning to sniff out anything detectives might have overlooked.

"We wanted to rule out the area where we found her car," Olson said. "We found nothing."

Police said Hataway, of Ocoee, had met Ocasio at the Taproom almost two weeks before she disappeared.

Hataway told police he had taken Ocasio home after the bar, but the missing woman's cell phone records show she was in the area of West Franklin Street later that morning. Records show Hataway lives near that area.

"When we checked for the cell phone records, cell phone towers still indicated that she was in the area of his house by 8:30 in the morning," Sgt. Mike Bryant of the Ocoee Police Department said. "So that part of his story doesn't quite add up."

Investigators later found her vehicle abandoned on a dirt parking lot on West Franklin Street.

Police spokesman Ofc. Bill Richardson said drugs were found at Hataway's home at the time of his arrest.

The missing woman's mother, Elizabeth Ocasio, fears the worst has happened to her daughter.

"I'm beginning to think that something serious might have happened to her," Elizabeth Ocasio said in a televised interview.

Olson said the family has been living in Ocoee since 1989.

Court records show Hataway has been behind bars in the past. His latest arrest was in April on charges of criminal mischief. He also had been arrested twice in 1998 on burglary charges, but adjudication was withheld.

Check back for updates.

Man Last Seen With Missing Woman Arrested
Seminole Co. Woman Said Person Of Interest Tried To Kill Her
POSTED: 3:07 am EDT June 2, 2009
UPDATED: 5:22 pm EDT June 2, 2009


OCOEE, Fla. -- A Seminole County woman who did not want to be identified said with the man authorities say was the last to see a missing 27-year-old woman tried to kill her.


Tracy Ocasio was last seen May 27. 
 
There is security footage from the Florida Tap Room Bar that shows Tracy Ocasio leaving the establishment with a man around 1 a.m. last Tuesday.

Investigators believe the man seen on that tape with the missing woman is 28-year-old James Hataway.

A Seminole County woman said she gave Hataway a ride home from a house party about a year ago, and that when she hugged him goodbye in front of his house, he tried to break her neck.

"He tried to start breaking my neck, I slipped out of it," she said. "He started strangling me. I got out of my car and I started running down the streets. I ended up slipping and falling, that's why I have these scares, right here. I have them on my knees. He came up behind me. He started slamming my head down on the sidewalk. I started screaming. And then he took his hand and took both fingers and put them in my mouth and tried to snap my neck again. And I'm screaming, 'Somebody please help me. He's going to kill me.' He ended up picking m up, he had his hands around my throat and two people walked outside, thank God, and saved my life."

She said misdemeanor battery charges were filed against Hataway in Seminole County, but that police were unable to find him.

Ocasio reportedly gave Hataway a ride home.

Ocasio's car was found abandoned in Ocoee, about 15 miles from the bar where she was last seen. The car was found not far from Hataways' home.

Friends and family of Ocasio stepped up search efforts on Sunday, handing out more than 500 fliers with the woman's information.

"It's been nothing but silence from Tracy, and there is one thing Tracy is not, it's silent," Tracy Ocasio's mother Liz Ocasio said.

Taryn Anthony, Ocasio's friend, is passing out fliers, vowing not to give up.

Ocasio's parents said they plan to request their daughter's cell phone records with the hope of finding new leads.



James Hataway More
 
 

Police arrested Hataway Monday night on drug charges not related to the missing persons investigation. Ocoee police call Hataway a person of interest in the case.

Hataway had his initial appearance Tuesday where a judge issued him a public defender and ordered him to be held under no bond.
