    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.

    Missing Children's Day draws attention in SWFL

    [snip]

    Over the weekend, advertisers donated digital billboard space throughout Florida to feature children and adults who are missing. Twenty eight people are featured, including several from Southwest Florida.

    Alexander Erb-Sanchez, Danny Paul Mordenti and Jonathan Josue Martinez will each grace a billboard and so will Wendy Hudakoc.

    Wendy was last seen in the early morning hours of November 15, 1998. She was a 14-year-old Naples High freshman when she disappeared. Investigators say she snuck out of her home to go to a party in Naples, and hasn't been seen since. Anyone with information on that case is asked to contact the Collier County Sheriff's Office.

    I wonder how assiduously LE have revisited the Depeppo story (which may be true but should be subject to the closest possible scrutiny). The reason I ask is the recent lifestyle of Ronald Depeppo, which has seen him arrested on low level theft and damage charges several times and reports of him living on the edge with few resources. Such run ins with LE give them every opportunity to retest his story and his current situation does not seem consistent with him retaining strong legal representation (if he did I would ask where the money came from).

    Unfortunately, no. And the Collier County Sherrifs department doesn't seem open to investigating leads that involve Ron Depeppo.

    I was a close friend of Wendy's and have reported Depeppo a few times over the years. The last time being a few months ago when I FB messaged him and he implied a threat against me. I said admit what you did to Wendy and he told me to repent or perish... They didn't care to hear when he implied sex for info. Or that he openly talked about bombing businesses owned by anyone who is LGBTQ.

    This is a dangerous, dangerous man and mark my words, we're going to turn on the TV one day and see his name involved in a mass murder. When I called to report his FB posts, the dectective that I spoke with had me in tears about reporting it! He argued that his posts sounded pro-USA.

    Y'all, I can't speak for everyone, but this is getting exhausting and it's completely destroyed any faith I have in the legal and justice system. No one will listen and I don't know why! I have no clue whatsoever how, and he's now homeless, he has so much protection! I heard that his mom was a dispatcher with the sheriffs department, but how in the world does that get you 18 years of protection? He openly talks about killing cops, why do they let that slide?

    I have screen shots of all our convos, I'll happily share them, anything to get the truth about him out! I've also kept a list of every report I've filed, every call I've made, theyve had 18 years to get him off the street and have failed the community miserably.

    I believe in my heart of hearts that he knows more than he's admitting to (i would gladly say what I really think, but that's against the forum rules). But I'm without a shadow of a doubt convinced that even if he wasn't involved in any way, this is a very dangerous person who has no business being out on the street.

    Luckily, Wendy has a lot of family and friends who aren't going to give up! I'll never forget the first day I met Wendy, we were in middle school and another girl at our lunch table invited her over to sit with us on her first day. She was quiet at first, but by the end of lunch you'd never know it! I don't remember how we got on the subject, but I remember convincing her that chocolate milk came from brown cows lol! I often think about that memory and wonder if I ever told her I was just kidding.

    What more can be done? Who else can be called? I'm going to keep reporting him, but that's not what I want, I want someone that will listen and take this seriously.

    Maybe you could contact the reporter/s that did the recent news stories? WINK or FOX.
