APOPKA, Fla. -- A new search is underway Tuesday in Orange County as Apopka police are looking for evidence in a high-profile missing person case.

An Apopka detective found Monday what they believe is a human bone, and investigators will spend the day looking for more clues. The detective found the bone in a swampy area off Ocoee-Apopka Road ( see map ). Investigators told WFTV it could be linked to Chris George.

George's disappearance has been connected to James Hataway who is also a suspect in the disappearance of Ocoee woman Tracy Ocasio.

Cadaver dogs and a team of investigators were out Tuesday in an all-out search for evidence. They are doing what is essentially a grid search of the area.

"Nothing that they found yet is definite, so it could go in any direction," said Rachael George, the mother of Chris George (watch interview).




Rachael showed up to watch Tuesday. Her son disappeared in February 2009; his truck was found in the search area.

Tuesday, FDLE and Apopka police came back out after the detective found what they believe is a small human bone. Initially, it was believed George, who had a history of drug use, had just walked away. But after Ocasio disappeared from Ocoee a few months later, investigators started pointing their suspicions at Hataway.

"At this time we're just trying to feverishly search this area ... and gather what ever evidence is possible," said Officer Steve Popp, Apopka Police Department (watch interview).

Hataway was last seen with Ocasio as she left the Florida Tap Room; he was also an associate of Chris George.

The search area has been searched before, but at the time it was underwater. Now, with the latest discovery and strong suspicions from police, this could be a key piece of evidence in the disappearance of Chris George.

His mother is hoping for some closure.

"I know he was involved in it. I know he knows more than he's ever revealed. His level of involvement, I'm not certain," Rachael said.

Because of the mucky, swampy conditions, investigators say this search could take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

Hataway remains in the Seminole County jail waiting to be tried in an attempted murder case. He is accused of trying to strangle a Casselberry woman who gave him a ride home from a party in 2008.
