Police looking for missing woman last seen in LeRoy

UPDATE: Heather O'Kopski has been located safe by law enforcement and is no longer missing, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office. She is at her current location by choice and left the area voluntarily.

LEROY — Heather O’Kopski was last seen in LeRoy and has been missing since May 19.

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office received a complaint about O’Kopski’s disappearance on Monday, May 20, and have since labeled her as a voluntary missing person, said Undersheriff John Keathly.

“All the evidence we have right now looks like she voluntarily left," he said, “It looks like she just packed a bag and left."

O’Kopski was last seen when she arrived from work Saturday, May 18 in LeRoy when someone picked her up sometime between midnight and 2 a.m., according to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page.

She is an 18-year-old Caucasian female, is 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighs approximately 150 pounds and has distinct eye colors; one blue and one green. Her hair color changes often but she was last seen with orange and blonde hair and she has one tattoo of an hourglass tree on her right bicep.

With O’Kopski being 18 and no foul play being suspected, Osceola County Sheriff Justin Halladay said there is not much the police can do to track O’Kopski down.

“We want to know her whereabouts like everyone else," said Halladay. “The issue is that she is an adult and nothing is pointing to her being in any danger. It is not like she is missing in the woods, was abducted or is a juvenile."

Though O’Kopski is an adult and not considered in any immediate danger, Halladay said the sheriff’s department is doing what they can to help get the word out.

“There is a lot of concern from her family and the community," he said. “Right now we are doing what we can to get the word out there."

If anyone has any information on O’Kopski’s whereabouts they are asked to contact the Osceola County Sheriff’s Department at (231) 832-2288.

“Missing is missing,‘ said Halladay. “We can’t relay her whereabouts to the family but we can let them know if she is safe.‘
