Wendy Kathlene Hudakoc (14) - Naples FL, 1998
Missing Since: November 15, 1998 from Naples, Florida
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: August 12, 1984
Age: 14 years old
Height and Weight: 5'6, 130 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Light brown hair, hazel eyes. Hudakoc has a birthmark on the back of her neck and a scar on her left hand. She wore braces on her top and bottom teeth at the time of her 1998 disappearance. Her ears are pierced; the left one is pierced twice. Some agencies may spell her middle name "Kathleen."
Details of Disappearance
Hudakoc was last seen leaving a party in Naples, Florida on November 15, 1998 at approximately 2:00 a.m. She has never been seen again. Hudakoc was accompanied by Ron Depeppo, who was 20 years old at the time. She did not take any personal belongings with her when she left.
Depeppo claims he took Hudakoc home after the party. He cooperated with authorities during the beginning of their investigation into Hudakoc's case, but he has since hired an attorney and refuses to answer further questions or take a polygraph. His car was located burned after Hudakoc's disappearance. Police took it for analysis but it was unknown what, if anything, they found. Depeppo was never identified as a suspect in Hudakoc's disappearance. Authorities are uncertain if Depeppo is connected to Hudakoc's case. Her family has not heard from her; they have all taken polygraphs and passed.
Records show that Hudakoc has not applied for a driver's license or gotten a job in all the time that she has been missing. Investigators and her family both believe she is deceased. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance, which remains unsolved.
