A missing Mountain Home woman was found dead Saturday morning. Authorities are now treating her death as a homicide.

The Elmore County Sheriff's office says 71-year-old Paula Knudson Ferbrache was reported missing Friday night. She reportedly left work at 2 p.m. and did not return home.

Deputies began a search of the area in an attempt to find the woman and her car. The search lasted late into the night.

They were unable to locate Ferbrache or her vehicle and the search was suspended until 8 a.m. Saturday.

Shortly after 8 a.m. a citizen reported seeing Ferbrache's car on a dirt road, in an agricultural area approximately four miles northeast of Mountain Home.

Elmore County Sheriff Detectives and Idaho State Police Detectives say they are following every valuable lead at this time.

They say there are many rumors about this case. Due to the sensitivity of the investigation, they cannot confirm or deny any other information due to the ongoing investigation.

They say there is no indication that there is risk to public safety.
