Who is Stephanie Hollingsworth? Florida yoga instructor mom-of-three disappears after taking $20 from ATM
She was last seen getting into her silver Chevy Tahoe and going to a bank drive-through where she withdrew $20 in cash
The Belle Isle Police Department are on the lookout for a woman from Central Florida who was last seen withdrawing money from an ATM before vanishing more than a week ago on September 25, 2020. Detectives released a video from her last seen footage, on Monday, October 5, hoping it may lead to clues into her disappearance.
On September 25, Stephanie Hollingsworth left her home in the Orlando suburb of Belle Isle, Florida, to run some errands but left her cellphone at home. She got into her silver Chevy Tahoe and swung by a bank drive-through, where she withdrew $20 in cash and since then she is missing, as reported by People.
"We don't have any more information than that," her husband, Scott Hollingsworth, told People. "But she couldn't have made it far with only $20. She hasn't been seen, and the Tahoe hasn't been picked up on any intersection or toll road cameras."
Surveillance footage from the bank does not seem to reveal anything out of the ordinary and Hollingsworth does not appear to be in any distress in the video. Her debit and credit cards have not been used after her $20 withdrawal. She was wearing a black shirt and gray or black pants when she went missing. The video was shared by the police department saying, "Please share this video of missing Belle Isle woman Stephanie Hollingsworth, captured 9/25 at 2 p.m. at Walmart at 5991 S Goldenrod Rd. Belle Isle PD is concerned for her safety and @CrimelineFL is offering a $5,000 reward. We believe someone may have seen something." Police said they haven’t found signs of suspicious activity related to her going missing. Police are investigating “several” tips received via Crimeline, Houston, and they are still working to find the missing mother of three.

Who is Stephanie Hollingsworth?
50-year-old Hollingworth who is reportedly missing, is a mother of three sons, ages 21, 17 and 15 years. She used to work as a yoga instructor and would never leave without saying where she was going. “This isn’t like her at all,” her husband said. “She’s not the type of person to go away for even a few hours without letting someone know where she was, and now this is the 10th day. She loves her boys and would never voluntarily be away for this long," he added.
“She’s an amazing person, an amazing mother. She’s a beautiful soul and just gave everything she had to everyone in her life,” he said. “A lot of people loved her, and anyone could always count on her," The Ledger quoted him as saying. He also mentioned that finding his wife's SUV would be key to the search and he has called on volunteers and others driving around the area to be mindful of the vehicle. "Anywhere a truck like that can be parked and unnoticed for a long time. It can’t just disappear," he said.
In a statement to People, the police department said it has “received no meaningful leads and continue to use every resource available.” They are operating under the assumption that Hollingsworth could be in danger. “We are leaving no stone unturned,” police Sgt. Jeremy Millis said. “We are working with every municipality in Central Florida to help find her.”
A fundraiser for Hollingsworth was raised $3,051, which was 117% raised from a $2,600 Goal. A Facebook group called Searching for Stephanie Hollingsworth has been created in order share information regarding her whereabouts, prayer vigils and gatherings regarding the search.
Stephanie has the tattoo of Angel wings on the back of her neck, 'Scott' tattooed on her ring finger and a small tattoo on one of her arms.
