"On March 15, 2000 Tina Marie McQuaig was reported missing after failing to return home from work. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office detectives say around 7 a.m.Tina dropped her son off with the babysitter, her sister-in-law who lived next door. She and Ottis left their home in separate cars. Tina clocked into work at Shands Hospital located in downtown Jacksonville at 8:28 a.m. Detectives say Tina's day was normal and her co-workers commented that she was upbeat and happy throughout the day. Tina clocked out at work at 4:49 p.m. On surveillance video she is seen walking off an elevator in the hospital's parking garage. Shortly afterward, Tina leaves the parking garage in her 1992 blue Nissan Sentra. When she didn't return home by 6 p.m., her husband Ottis became concerned. He later called 911 to report her missing.
Four days later, March 19, 2000, Tina's car is found in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart at 6830 Normandy Blvd. The car is parked in the far west corner of the lot, located closest to Normandy Blvd. The car was processed and some unidentified fingerprints and fibers were found, but no clues were left behind. Detectives said the car was unlocked and her keys and purse were missing. Since then, there have been no clues. Jacksonville Sheriff's Office missing persons unit and homicide are working the case."
That was the initial profile for when Tina McQuaig who aired on the May 20th, 2000 episode of America's Most Wanted as a missing person at that time. However, on Dec. 26, 2002, a surveying crew found remains in the woods near Cecil Field, and DNA later confirmed it was McQuaig. The Duval County Medical Examiner's Office ruled it a homicide. I do not know if AMW ever updated that this was now a homicide investigation, however, Tina's still unsolved murder was profiled the Investigation Discovery show "Disappeared."
