Can you be arrested for failure to appear if you never recieved a subpoena?

If someone is issued a subpoena (to appear in court as a witness to a car accident) but they've moved and never recieved or signed it, and the court date has passed, can they still be arrested for failure to appear. I thought no because they didn't sign or recieve the subpoena.

It could cause some headaches, but in the end, it will be forgiven.
