AKRON, Ohio — A Mentor woman who was missing since 2017 has been found safe, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

Samantha Cook was located in the Akron area by members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force after they had released her photo to the public in hopes of finding her, authorities said.

Cook was reported missing by her family in November 2017.

Although Cook did have a minor warrant from Summit County, the most important concern was for her safety and wellbeing, authorities said.
