Sheriff IDs Man Missing In Lake CdA

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office has identified a man who is missing and presumed drowned in Lake Coeur d'Alene as Riley Odwire, 24, who recently moved from Fernwood to Coeur d'Alene. Odwire reportedly was urinating at the back of a pontoon boat at 8:40 p.m. Tuesday when he fell into the water that ranges in depth from 115 feet to 180 feet deep. Alcohol was believed to be a factor. Sheriff's office rescuers resumed their search today after suspending it at 11 o'clock last night. Deputies from the Recreation Safety Section of the Sheriff’s Department will be checking shorelines in the search area and preparing for the sonar search that will begin tomorrow, weather permitting.
