TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is seeking information on an aspiring pro wrestler and mother of three who went missing in 2016.
According to FDLE, Samantha Fiddler was last seen in Polk County Nearly five years ago on Nov. 19, 2016. At the time, the 29-year-old was arrested on a warrant out of Brevard County and booked into the Polk County jail and later released.
Mark Brutnell, a special agent for FDLE Tampa said that was the last time anybody saw her.
“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,” Brutnell said. “Please help us provide answers to her family and her three children.”
Law enforcement officials say Fiddler was a resident of Alberta, Canada, and came to Florida in March 2016 to pursue a career in wrestling and entertainment. While living in Florida for eight months, FDLE said Fiddler spent time in Polk, Orange, Miami-Dade, Brevard, Broward, Osceola, and Seminole counties.
Investigators believe people who knew Fiddler while she lived in Florida may have information that could solve her missing person case.
“This is a mother of three kids who had a very active role in their life and her family’s life and that has all stopped since November 19, 2016,” Brutnell said.
Officials say she has several handprint tattoos on her back with the words “Ava and Madison” and a skull on her shoulder.
FDLE began its investigation into Fiddler’s disappearance in 2020 at the request of the Bartow Police Department.
