Replay: Arianna Fitts
Manage episode 356454896 series 1438018
We are taking this week off but we wanted to take this opportunity to share a very important story that we first aired in 2020. Arianna Fitts disappeared in 2016, and her mother, Nicole, was murdered. Both cases remain unsolved today. In 2022, the FBI raised the reward in this case to $250,000. Once again, we wanted to shine a light on the story. Arianna has been missing for nearly seven years, and her family needs answers.
On April 1, 2016, 32-year-old Nicole Fitts told her roommate she had to run a quick errand to meet someone nearby at a restaurant. Nicole’s 2-year-old daughter, Arianna, had been staying with some babysitters in a nearby city while Nicole worked. Nicole had decided it was time to pick up her toddler after the babysitters made excuses for not giving Arianna back. She took some money from an ATM, went to pay the babysitters and retrieve Arianna. Nicole never came home. One week later, Nicole was found murdered in a San Francisco park. Her body was discovered in a shallow grave covered by a wooden board. Her daughter, Arianna, has never been seen again.
If you have any information about the disappearance of Arianna Fitts, please call the San Francisco FBI at 415-553-7400. If you have any information about the murder of Nicole Fitts, please call the San Francisco Police Department homicide division at 415-553-1145.
We will be back on Monday, March 6, with a new case from California.
