    Age: 13 years old
    Height and Weight: 4'10, 95 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Blonde hair, hazel eyes. Occhi has a strawberry birthmark at the base of her skull. She has small scratch scars on her right leg and bumps on the skin of both of her knees. Her ears are pierced. Occhi has a lazy left eye and wears eyeglasses.

    Details of Disappearance
    Occhi was last seen at her family's residence in the 100 block of Honey Locust Drive in Tupelo, Mississippi on August 27, 1992. Her mother saw her before leaving for work at 7:35 a.m. There were heavy storms that day and Occhi's mother was concerned for her as a result. Her mother tried to call her at 8:30 a.m., but got no answer. She tried to call once more before returning home, but there was still no answer. Her mother became worried and returned home to check on Occhi, and discovered that the garage door was open. Another door to the house was left unlocked.
    There were no signs of forced entry into the home, but there were some indications that a struggle had taken place. Blood stains were located inside the house on the walls, doorframe, the bathroom countertop, one of Occhi's nightgowns, and on the carpet. Occhi's reading glasses, shoes, and some of her underclothes were missing. There was no sign of her at the scene and she has not been seen again.
    Occhi resided with her mother and stepfather at the time of her disappearance. Her father was in the United States Army and was stationed in Washington state. He got emergency leave from the military after Occhi's disappearance and moved to Tupelo with his family so he could assist in the search for his daughter.
    About one month after Occhi's disappearance, her glasses arrived at her residence in the mail from Booneville, Mississippi. It is unknown who sent them; handwriting and forensic tests on the envelope yielded no results. Authorities stated they had very little evidence to determine who was responsible for Occhi's disappearance. Several persons of interest have been interviewed, but no one has been charged in connection with her case. Occhi's case is unsolved and foul play is suspected.
