Kamrie Mitchell remains missing

Man who threatened Mitchell was a suspect in missing woman case in 2009 in Alachua County

Live Oak — 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.”

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 floodwaters 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 birthdate on her right side.


The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who has any source of information to give them a call at 386-362-2222.
