The search for a missing South Dakota mom ended this week when authorities found her body and vehicle after an almost month-long search.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Angela Armstrong disappeared at around midnight on June 3 from her Sioux Falls residence. She was last seen driving a dark grey 2017 Chevy Traverse, with South Dakota license plate, 44ZW44.
Sioux Falls police spokesperson Sam Clemens said previously that investigators “hit a wall” and could not find her vehicle. On Tuesday night, they located the vehicle in an apartment garage on the city’s southwest side, off of the 6500 block of S. Beal Avenue. Armstrong’s body was found next to the SUV, according to KELO news.
Authorities were alerted to the garage when someone called police and said they smelled something unusual coming from the garage. Investigators have not said who the garage belongs to but it was not Angela’s, although she does live in the area.
“I think in that apartment complex there is quite a few garages, we just aren’t able to go and randomly check garages just to see, we are not able to do that,” Clemens said. “In this case, there has been a lot of challenges. We knew that it was unusual behavior, there wasn’t a lot of information to follow up on, like where she may have gone, direction of travel.”
The Argus Leader reports that authorities didn’t find any trauma on Armstrong’s body.
The cause and manner are death are still pending, according to officials.
Anyone with information or tips should contact the Sioux Falls Police Department at 605-367-7212.
