Tim Miller & Texas Equusearch Join the Search for Missing Tracy Ocasio in Florida


Tim Miller and the volunteer search team Texas Equusearch has joined the search for the TES patch_for_stickersmissing 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.

      These people are smart and are one of the best options to get the job done. I know TES can bring Ocasio home.

      Bring another one home for us, Tim & TES…if anyone can find her…it’s all of you.

      God Bless, and prayers to the Ocasio family to find their strength through this difficult time.

      I’m sure Tim Miller is a great guy, but I have to wonder why every time he comes to town he is welcomed with such fanfare. Have we forgotten how many times he searched for Caylee and found NOTHING, searched for Adji and found NOTHING, searched for Haleigh and found NOTHING, and now Tracy. So far his track record in Florida isn’t looking too promising. Not trying to be pessamistic, just making an observation.

      I will keep what you said in mind and If you go missing I will suggest that no one look for you.

      Joe Ocasio and his wife are the most grateful of all for Mr.Miller going to Florida, as well as EquuSearch and all the wonderful local Floridians that have been searching. Even if they can’t find her, our family is grateful for his large scale search. We feel better, since every area in question is been looked at simoultaneously. It gives Tracy’s family a little comfort to see others looking. I am sad to see some folks out there that can’t understanding how deeply my family is moved by this search. I thank you all those positive encouranging posts. God bless you all.
