Drowning Victim Search Continues


The search continues for the body of nine-year old Promise Archer, of Des Arc, who drowned in the White River Sunday.

The child was riding on the back of a four-wheeler on a popular sandbar with some friends and fell into the water and got swept away by the current.

Des Arc Police along with the Prairie County Sheriff’s Office and divers with the Game and Fish Commission are using sonar equipment to continue navigating through the murky, debris-filled water.

Volunteers who wish to help continue the search are asked to please contact the Sheriff’s Office and check in prior to launch. Authorities need to know who all you have in your boat and will also give instructions on what to do.
