  • Details of Disappearance
    CHudakoc 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. 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. Records show that Hudakoc has not applied for a driver's license or gotten a job in the time that she has been missing. Police and her family believe she is deceased. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance, which remains unsolved.
