TAMPA, Fla. – Florida authorities continue to pursue leads in the case of a missing woman who was last seen in Brevard County in 2016.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said this week that Samantha Fiddler was last seen on November 19, 2016, when she was 29 years old.

Officials said Fiddler, of Alberta, Canada, came to Florida in March 2016 to pursue a career in wrestling and entertainment and spent time in Polk, Orange, Miami-Dade, Brevard, Broward, Osceola and Seminole counties.

Investigators said they believe those who knew Fiddler while she lived in Florida may have information that could solve the case.

“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,” FDLE Tampa Special Agent in Charge Mark Brutnell said.

The FDLE began investigating Fiddler’s disappearance last year at the request of Bartow Police Department.

Agents have conducted interviews with family members and friends in Florida and in Canada, officials said.

Fiddler was described as white/Native American, 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 118 pounds, with red, brown or blonde hair.

Anyone who knew Fiddler while she lived in Florida or has information about her whereabouts is asked to call FDLE Tampa at 800-226-1140.
