STUTTGART, Ark. – In a new video message posted on Instagram, a woman claims she is the center of the viral TikTok video and is not Cassie Compton.

The TikTok video, which was being shared Thursday, shows a woman in the backseat of a car dazing into the camera.

There was widespread speculation by social media users that the woman in the video was Cassie Compton, who disappeared from Stuttgart, Arkansas in 2014.

Thursday afternoon, a woman posted a video on Instagram saying she’s the victim of a weekend robbery and does not know who Compton is.

Federal authorities said Thursday morning they are investigating.

“The TikTok video has been brought to our attention. The FBI Little Rock is aware of it,” FBI Little Rock spokesperson Connor Hagan said. “We are following up on the video and taking any logical investigative steps but we cannot say anything further at this time.”

Compton vanished from Stuttgart, Arkansas, in 2014 when she was 16 years old.

Police in Stuttgart said they are also aware of the video and are investigating.

“We appreciate all the tips and information about Cassie Compton. We have the video from Tik Tok and have seen the Facebook posts. We are working diligently with the Arkansas State Police and FBI right now. Since this is still an open investigation we can’t release any further information right now.”
