According to detective Rhonda Stroup, Sosa called Thursday, July 1, to report that his girlfriend was missing and he thought it odd that she left all her personal belongings behind when she left their home the day before at about 5 p.m.
Sosa then reportedly traveled to the Miami area for the weekend, which was confirmed by relatives.
He was seen on a business surveillance tape late Sunday night, July 4, in Wildwood.
On Sunday, Carla Biess, a friend of Odell, called officials to report that she was missing. At that point, the investigation was elevated from a suspicious incident to a missing person report.
On Monday Moca, Odell’s pet dog Moca was found wandering in Miami with her leash dragging the ground. A retired policeman saw her and took her in. It was discovered that she had a microchip identifying her as Odell’s pet.
