At approximately XA52Z an air carrier departure off miami northbound, asked me if I had traffic behind him. After his question, I checked air carrier position and did observe traffic in his area. The pilot of air carrier reported an aircraft at his altitude near him. After I had instructed air carrier to contact miami center, a miami center controller called me and advised that the air carrier pilot wanted to report a near miss. I then informed my supervisor of the situation. Callback conversation with reporter revealed the following: reporter stated years of ATC and proximity of traffic. Small aircraft apparently flying over the top of the TCA and was not observed until after the incident. Aircraft was not squawking and primary targets hard to see in this area. Final report on incident never seen by reporter, but controller was not charged with anything. Suspect considered pilot deviation on small aircraft or see and avoid.
