Media availability Wednesday in Tampa
Agents continue to pursue leads in the Samantha Fiddler missing persons case. Ms. Fiddler was last seen in Brevard County on November 19, 2016, at the age of 29.
FDLE Tampa Special Agent in Charge Mark Brutnell said, “We are concerned for her safety because Ms. Fiddler’s family hasn’t heard from her in five years and she hasn’t posted anything on social media. Please help us provide answers to her family and her three children.”
A resident of Alberta, Canada, Ms. Fiddler came to Florida in March 2016 to pursue a career in wrestling and entertainment. While living in Florida, Ms. Fiddler spent time in Polk, Orange, Miami-Dade, Brevard, Broward, Osceola and Seminole counties. Investigators believe persons who knew Ms. Fiddler while she lived in Florida may have information that could solve this case.
FDLE began investigating the disappearance of Ms. Fiddler last year at the request of Bartow Police Department. Agents have conducted multiple interviews with family members and friends both in Florida and in Canada, but we need more information.
If you knew Samantha Fiddler while she lived in Florida (March 2016 – November 2016), or have any information regarding her whereabouts, please call FDLE Tampa at (800) 226-1140.
FDLE Tampa Special Agent in Charge Mark Brutnell will be available to speak with reporters Wednesday at 10 a.m. about this case. Members of Ms. Fiddler’s family are also willing to speak with reporters through Zoom.
