Tim Miller and the volunteer search team Texas Equusearch has joined the search for the missing Ocoee woman, Tracy Ocasio. According to reports, Tim Miller arrived in Florida at 4:45 p.m. Friday to start on their search efforts. Tracy Ocasio has been missing since leaving the Taproom Bar in Orlando, FL at approximately 1:30 am Wednesday, May 27, 2009.
Miller and his crew set out Saturday at 8 a.m. By 10 a.m., nearly 60 members of Texas Equusearch were at the search site, coming through the thick brush and wooded areas. They said it’s better to start their day earlier, especially working outside in the Florida heat.
At about 10:30 a.m., Equusearch requested help from the public in the search for Ocasio beginning Sunday.
Joe Ocasio, the missing woman’s father, said he has come to the reality that he may never see his daughter again.
“I somehow fear that this is not going to turn out the way that we hope,” Ocasio’s mother, Liz Ocasio, said. “But we can only do our best to find her.”
Texas Equusearch is asking for volunteers to help in the search that are willing to search the wooded area on foot as well as searchers with ATVs or horses.
People who are willing to participate in the search must report no later than 8 a.m. to Vignetti Park at 1906 Adair Street in Ocoee. They also are required to be 18 or older with photo identification, and must be able to bring their own food, insect spray and sunscreen.
