They are still searching for any information that will lead them to her.
Mitchell’s mother Stefani says, “We’re on the timeline and they tell us they’re doing everything they can, but the hardest part of that is, that she’s still not here.”On August 25th Andrelo Witcher was arrested for breaking into Kamrie’s father, Tony Mitchell’s home and threatening Kamrie before stealing some personal items… Tony says that he feared for both his and his daughter’s life.

That day August 25th also is the last time her family reported seeing her.
12 days after Mitchell was last seen Witcher  was arrested by the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office for the break in on charges of armed burglary.
Sheriff Tony Cameron refused to comment on his connection the missing person case. “I dont ever name person of interest. they’re certainly people we’re interviewing, and we’re checking into their whereabouts and those kinds of things,” says Cameron.
The public defender assigned to Witcher withdrew from the case because of ethical concerns and says that he also doesn’t wish to comment.
A closer look into Witcher’s history shows that Mitchell is not the first missing persons case he may have had a hand in.
In 2007 he was brought in for questioning regarding the disappearance of his ex girlfriend Heather MacCrossen, who is still yet to be found.

Update: September 18th, 2012 – Man Who Threatened Kamrie Mitchell Is A Suspect In 2009 Disappearance Of Alachua County Woman –

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office continues their search for Kamrie Cherai Mitchell, 24, who was last seen in the Branford, Lake City area on Aug. 25 by her family.

As reported previously by the Democrat, an O’Brien man was arrested for reportedly threatening Mitchell and others the night of Aug. 25 at the residence of Mitchell’s father, Thomas J. Mitchell III, where Kamrie Mitchell was said to be that night, according to Sheriff Tony Cameron.

Andrelo Larashard Witcher, 33, of 22601 CR 49, O’Brien, was booked on charges of burglary while armed and possession of a weapon by a felon for entering the home uninvited. No injuries were reported during that incident. Witcher also faces new charges of failing to comply with the sex offender registration and failure to comply with the driver license requirement for sex offender registration for a 2003 case in Duval County.

It was learned that Witcher was a suspect in a missing woman’s case from 2009 in Alachua County, according to Lt. Todd Kelly of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office who is one of the investigators handling that case.

Witcher became a suspect in the case involving his ex-girlfriend, Heather Ann MacCrossen, who was a former Cafe Risque dancer, according to Kelly. The last time MacCrossen’s family heard from her was in a phone call on Aug. 17, 2007 from a bus station in Gainesville. The family of MacCrossen officially reported her missing in December of that year.

“There seems to be some consistency,” Kelly said. “There’s some alarming behavior from the case here.”

It was believed that Witcher and MacCrossen had a violent relationship.

MacCrossen remains missing.

Kamrie Mitchell was reported missing by her family on Sept. 2. Cameron previously reported that Kamrie Mitchell had been known by family to disappear from time to time if she was upset, but that she always called her family to check in on her small daughter.

Her white four-door 1992 Pontiac Grand Am was found submerged in flood-waters on 184th Street, about halfway between Wellborn and the Ranchette’s area in eastern Suwannee County, near the Columbia County line on Wednesday, Sept. 5. Part of the road was still submerged in water that came from Tropical Storm Debby in late June.

Cameron said search teams have canvassed the area on foot, horseback and by sky in an attempt to locate Kamrie Mitchell. He said the search continues and includes interviews with friends and family.

Cameron said Mitchell is 5 feet 3 inches and 130 pounds. She has dyed brown hair and blues eyes. Mitchell has “Kamrie” tattooed on her left foot, “Grams” and a butterfly on her wrist and “Layla” with a footprint and a birth-date on her right side.

LATEST UP – 09/08/12 –

SUWANNEE COUNTY – TV 20 was the first to interview the family of 23-year-old Kamrie Mitchell, the woman missing in Suwannee County.

Her father was the last person to see her, and he says this isn’t like her.

The family says a friend found Mitchell’s car pushed into water early Wednesday morning, and the sheriff confirms her cell phone had been left behind.

Kamrie Mitchell’s father says it was absolutely a road she would have driven on, but right now it can only be passed via a canoe because it’s flooded, the leftovers from Tropical Storm Debbie.

So why was it in that water? The questions remain, but her sister tells me this isn’t a tragedy, because they are going to find her alive.

 Kyla Ryan: “Do you think finding the car is more helpful or less helpful?”

 

Family: “I think it gave us hope when she wasn’t in it, that she could be somewhere out there.”

The car is an anchor holding this family together, because its something tangible, a concrete clue that has provided the hope they need, to remain optimistic.

Her sister Laura Laggart tells me that her father, “was supposed to wait until the tow truck got there, but he had to pry it open, he had to know if his daughter was in there…thankfully she was not.”

A Facebook friend found the car and told Kamrie Mitchell’s family.

Her sister Kershta Mitchell says they, “swam in that water for hours with sticks trying to find anything they could.”

The car in the water is bringing the whole community together to help.

Jennifer Rousseau Rentschler says, “it’s so wonderful that everyone is coming together…whether they know her or not…she is a person, and she is missing  and everyone who has been searching just wants her to come home.”

Searchers are looking in the area near where the car was found.

Volunteers and sheriff’s deputies were on horses scouring the area, the flooding providing obstacles to the search.

Sheriff Tony Cameron believes foul play could be involved.

 The family, however remains steadfast in their belief that they will bring Kamrie home.

 Family: “We don’t have time to cry. God is the glue holding us together.”

 The family says the car was accidentally towed to their house, and then the sheriff’s office had to collect it.

The sheriff says that the people who own the land on either side of the dirt road are cooperating…and have let them freely search anywhere they need to.

Brandford, Florida – 09/05/12 – Kamrie Mitchell is 24-years-old and was last seen in Lake City (FL) on August 25th, 2012

Nobody has seen or heard from her since. Family is convinced foul play is involved stating Kamrie has never gone more than a day or two without contacting her friends and family and without checking up on her child.

It appears the missing woman has had trouble with the law – http://www.mugshotsonline.com/florida/ocala/kamrie-mitchell/58398641 – more than once. A website called ”Mugshots Online” says Kamrie Mitchell got arrested on July 4th, 2012 A.k.a ‘Independence Day‘, in Ocala, Florida for ”Petit Theft” of $100.00. She is listed as being 23-years-old at the time which leads me to believe that the young woman had a Birthday this past Summer.

Another website lists Kamrie again, stating she was arrested May 10th, 2012 for ”reckless driving”. This particular website has more detailed information.- http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Kamrie_Mitchell_7905000/

And her latest mug shot is this past August (08/13/12) for probation violation. – http://www.mugshotsworld.com/kamrie-cherai-mitchell-2

Perhaps the young woman got in trouble with the wrong person(s).?

Pictured; Kamrie Mitchell’s default picture on Facebook, features her along with her daughter.http://www.facebook.com/kamrie.mitchell (Can be viewed by the public)

Kamrie’s Facebook also states the young woman was born in Wichita, Kansas. I’m not sure how long ago she moved to Florida. It also stated the young woman graduated Brandford, Connecticut High School, but that could be the result of an error, considering the young woman is from Brandford, Florida.

Her friends and family are very worried about Kamrie Mitchell and are asking the public to keep an eye out for the missing mother of one.

Kamrie Mitchell is described as being 5’3”, approximately 130 pounds with is 5’3″ and 130 pounds with natural blonde hair (frequently changes hair-color, which was dyed dark-brown at the time of her disappearance.) and blue eyes. She has multiple tattoo’s which include, “Kamrie” tattooed on her left foot, “Grams” and a butterfly on her wrist, and “Layla” with a footprint and birthday on her right side.
She is driving a white 4-door 1992 Pontiac Grand Am sedan.
