Details of Disappearance
Kaseta reported Mimmovich missing the next day, after searching for her when she failed to meet him after her walk. He is considered the prime and only suspect in Mimmovich's disappearance. Police say they don't believe she was ever at Deerfield Beach on the day of her disappearance and that Kaseta's version of events leaves hours uncovered. Mimmovich's mother says her daughter's relationship with Kaseta was troubled at the time that she disappeared and that they frequently fought. Kaseta says they had differences but never argued. He maintains his innocence in Mimmovich's case and says he hopes she will return safely.
She is a graduate of Auburndale High School and left behind a 16-year-old daughter. She had a job at Gator Promotions at the time of her disappearance.
Some reports may state that Mimmovich lived in Buckboard Trail.
Mimmovich was reportedly last seen in Deerfield Beach, Florida at approximately 6:00 a.m. She had left her mother's home to attend a birthday party in Auburndale. Afterwards, she apparently went to Deerfield Beach with her boyfriend of four months, Dion Kaseta. He claims she wanted to watch the sunrise. Kaseta's sister's house was located at Deerfield Beach, which is on the ocean and four miles from Mimmovich's residence in Lake Wales.
Kaseta says she told him she was going for a walk alone, left, and never returned. Mimmovich was not familiar with the Deerfield Beach area and has no friends or relatives living there. She was carrying a black leather notebook containing her identification, an unspecified amount of money, a cellular phone, pair of shorts, and a swimsuit and a pair of shorts wrapped in a white beach towel. She has not used her phone since she disappeared.
