Eyes : Hazel eyes,
Skin: a light complexion, and a thin build.

Wearing a red, white and blue tank top and jeans the last time anyone saw her.
Was 14 years, when someone phoned Wendy at the family’s Golden Gate home around 11 p.m. on Nov. 14, 1998, a Saturday night.
Her mother, Shelley, and stepfather, Dan Campbell, were in Tampa for the weekend.
Her sister, Sharlene Hudakoc-Boyatt, then 16, was at home with a friend. Dan’s co-worker was staying with the three girls.
“She took Dan Campbell’s pager and said to Sharlene, ‘If I get busted, call me right away and I’ll come right home.'”
Sharlene, then a Naples High junior, decided not to go to the party.
What We Know
- Ron DePeppo was asked to leave the party
- Everyone saw a Wendy leave with him
- Wendy received a page
- – No page was ever found
- Phone Call
- – No records or other person ever received a phone call
Modeling, I would think the threat as far as being killed by the agent’s team is not a reality, like you would of bad dates.
When you get into low budget modeling, I believe the threats increase as do the severity of concern for amnesty
However, this is not coming across as photo shoot that went bad it is more like, a date that changed her mind and wanted out.
Somewhere between her leaving, the party with Ron and the dew morning Wendy was no longer a breathing healthy being.
Who would do such a thing, apparently many do not believe that Ron would, as there is justice served, therefore looking outside the box. There would have to be another entity or person involved. Point ended no other entity or person was discovered.
We all know how midnight parties can be, dreading the reality though seldom a life threat, usually the safety and well being is looked after.
Point: Ron and Wendy left a party on 5th street around 2:00, 2:30 the morning of the, 15th of November in the year of 1989.
As delusional as we may all seem to be, Ron wants us to believe that he dropped Wendy off to meet someone else. Factor why wouldn’t Ron become jealous, why wouldn’t Ron after driving a short distance become enraged, turn around run into her with the car, put her in the car and go to someplace special secluded place. As farfetched as it seems Wendy has not come home after 16 years a 14-year-old girl has not went school, has not seen her family and has not enjoyed the life that we live.

Posted case file video “Missing Person Wendy Hudakoc”
This Video states that the person of interest “ Ronald DePeppo had dropped her off to meet a guy named Jeff”
With no Jeff I believe that this Factious The sister of Wendy Hudakoc along with the step father Dan Campbell have stated that no page was transmitted and do not believe there was a Character named Jeff”
There is another video posted here that does not conflict with the victims family
Video name “Case Files: Wendy Hudakoc”
After 16 years if there determined enough that a Jeff Character is involved and responsible. Why hasn’t the Jeff character been sought for credibility
Oh I suppose he got in his spaceship and went to the moon

Exactly what happened between Wendy sneaking out of her bedroom’s jalousie window not long after the phone call and the next morning when Sharlene went in to wake her sister is unknown.
“I was going to jump on the bed, because she was going to be hung over,” Sharlene, now 26, recalled with a half-smile.
The candle that Wendy left lit on the window sill was still burning after dawn on Sunday; the teen’s bed was still made.
Sharlene; paged Wendy for two and a half hours to no avail.
Sharlene; called her parents, telling them that Wendy did not return home last night. They flew home right away and called police. The police reported her as a run away
The family and investigators know that Wendy went to a party in Old Naples 9 miles away with Ronald DePeppo, then 20, whom Wendy had met at a Naples bowling alley that fall. Sheriff’s investigators say that Wendy and DePeppo left the party around 2:30 a.m. on November 15, 1989.
Speculation: Wendy received a page, DePeppo told investigators they stopped at a pay phone at the corner of Airport Road and Davis Boulevard so she could make a call.
The page was never verified nor was the call from any phone booth near the area stated.
Speculation: When she got back into the car, DePeppo said she told him she wanted to go home because she was meeting up with someone else.
Her DNA is in a national database, but no one has used her name or identity since her disappearance.
Adding to the mystery was an event that occurred on Dec. 1, 1998, two weeks after Wendy vanished.
DePeppo’s 1991 blue Mazda, the car he was said to have used to drop Wendy off at home in the early hours of Nov. 15, 1998, was destroyed in a fire. Sheriff’s investigators concluded the fire was an accident.
DePeppo turned his charred vehicle over to the Sheriff’s Office for forensic processing and photos.
“There was nothing in there (after the fire) that linked Wendy to that car even though we know she was in there,” Becker said.
Polygraph tests given to immediate members of Wendy’s family ruled them out as suspects.
