The U.S. Marshals Service and Mentor Police Department are seeking the public’s help in attempting to locate 31 year old Samantha Cook. Cook is described as a white female with red hair and blue eyes, standing 5’05” and weighing 150 pounds. Cook is wanted in Summit County for possession of drugs, and is entered as a missing person by the Mentor Police Department.
In January 2017, Cook was charged with possessing a small amount of drugs after a stop by the Ohio State Patrol and failed to appear in court. Then, in November 2017, Cook was reported missing by her family in Mentor.
At the time she went missing Cook did not have a permanent address, but was staying in the Barberton and Akron areas. Cook was known to frequent locations in Wadsworth, Rittman, and Canton; however at this point she could be anywhere.
Extensive investigation by the Mentor Police and U.S. Marshals so far has been unable to locate anyone who has seen Cook, or has had any contact with her, since 2017.
Although Ms. Cook does have a minor warrant, the most important concern now is for her safety and well being. Hopefully, if Ms. Cook sees this report herself, she will be encouraged her to reach out to law enforcement or her family so that someone knows she is safe.
Anyone with information regarding Samantha Cook is asked to contact the U.S. Marshals at 1-866-4Wanted, or Text keyword WANTED and tip to TIP411 (847411). Tipsters can remain anonymous. Reward money is available
