    I just don't see her ever being found. Hataway must of disposed of her body in one of the ponds he dredged.

    They need a full list of the dredging ponds that Hataway would have visited while working for his father.

    About 1:30 a.m. a decade ago Monday, 27-year-old Tracy Ocasio walked out of the Taproom bar in Orlando’s MetroWest neighborhood with James Hataway.

    Ocasio’s case remains unsolved. Hataway– the sole suspect, according to police – is currently serving a life sentence in state prison, having been convicted in an attack on another young woman.

    She was never seen again.

    As the grim milestone of the 10 year anniversary of Ocasio’s disappearance nears, the Ocoee Police Department issued a brief statement Friday, stressing that the agency is still “committed to solving this case to bringing peace to the family and justice for Tracy.”

    Anyone who has information is asked to call Detective Matt Serrao at 407-554-7210 or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477. Callers to Crimeline can remain anonymous.

    Though her parents have said they have accepted it’s unlikely she’s alive, Ocasio’s remains have not been found.

    The 2013 discovery of a human skull near Ocoee – in a wooded area her family described as a former hangout of Hataway’s – briefly sparked hope of resolution to the mystery, but the remains were determined not to be hers.

    After her disappearance, Ocasio’s Chevrolet Cobalt was found on Franklin Street in Ocoee, blocks from Hataway’s home. He told police she gave him a ride home, then left, claiming he didn’t know what happened to her.

    The victim in the case that sent him to prison, Rachael Clarke, testified that she had thought she was giving Hataway, a friend, a ride home Aug. 7, 2008 – until he tried to strangle her.

    Clarke said she was able to break free of Hataway’s grip and escape the car they were in, but he chased her down and, after she fell, grabbed her by the hair and slammed her face into the concrete.

    The commotion drew the attention of a neighbor, who intervened and called 911.

    Hataway is currently serving his life sentence in Blackwater River Correctional Facility in Milton, a city in the Panhandle. He was convicted of attempted murder, burglary, false imprisonment and robbery.

    Ocasio is one of three young women in Central Florida whose disappearances over a roughly five-year span have gone unsolved, despite extensive search efforts and widespread public attention.

    Jennifer Kesse, who disappeared from her condo near Mall at Millenia in 2006, has never been found. Orlando police have said they think the 24-year-old woman was abducted.

    Michelle Parker, 33, disappeared in November 2011 after dropping her young twins with her ex-fiancé, Dale Smith. Orlando police have called Smith a suspect, but he has not been charged.

    Tracy Ocasio went missing 10 years ago. Ocoee police say they’re still looking for answers

    Hattaway will likely take it to the grave.

    I don't know what else there is to sleuth here. Hattaway's the killer and likely put her in one of the ponds he dredged.

    It sounds like LE still has the car. Hataway knew the dredging ponds well in Ocoee. LE should be looking through all the records of Hataway's fathers business to see what ponds their company dredged.
