Body found inside car matching description of missing Coeur d'Alene woman Sharon Archer

Coeur d'Alene authorities said the car matches the description of one belonging to Archer, who went missing in early October.

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — A white car that was submerged in Fernan Lake was discovered with a body matching the description of 62-year-old Sharon Archer, Coeur d’Alene police said.

Coeur d'Alene police said a man discovered a white vehicle submerged in Fernan Lake in the area of the boat ramp. He called the police department after seeing a post about a search party being formed to look for Archer and that she was driving a white vehicle.

The Coeur d’Alene Police Department said Sharon Archer was last seen at her home in the area of 5th Street and Locust Avenue on Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. Authorities said they discovered a body in the car but have not yet confirmed the identity.

Archer is considered endangered due to a history of medical conditions and the length of time since she's been without her diabetes medicine. Her family says she was in a bad car crash about 30 years ago and suffered brain damage.

Archer’s family has been notified of this information and the Coeur d’Alene police are continuing to investigate.

This is an ongoing investigation and we will update the story with the newest information.
