As Suwannee County Cold Case Continues, Suspect Set For 2016 Release

Suwannee County sheriff's deputies are continuing the investigation into the cold-case disappearance of Kamrie Mitchell, who went missing from her Wellborn, Florida, home in 2012 at the age of 23.

Sheriff Tony Cameron said one man, Andrelo Witcher, is behind Mitchell's disappearance. According to the Florida Department of Corrections website, he's scheduled to be released this fall.

Witcher "has a lot of close ties to the case," Cameron said.

Witcher pleaded guilty to robbing Mitchell hours before she went missing. Witcher is serving time in prison for the robbery at the Walton Correctional Institution, Cameron said.

Cameron said closure is important for Mitchell's family.

"I think it's something they long for," he said.

Mitchell left behind a daughter, who misses her mother very much, said Stefani Warden, Mitchell's mother. Her daughter doesn't understand why Mitchell can't be found and brought home, Warden said.

Witcher is also a suspect in the missing person's case of Heather Ann MacCrossen, who was last seen in 2007, Cameron said.
