A 48-year-old Stephenville woman has been missing since about 5:30 p.m. Friday after failing to return home after going on a bike ride.


The Erath County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation into the search for Sharla Shaffer's whereabouts.

Captain Ben Moore told Beneath the Surface News that Sharla’s family reported her missing on Friday evening.


“We have very minimal information at this point,” Captain Ben Moore said. “All we know is that she rode off on a bike and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.”

Deputies are out going door-to-door in an effort to locate her, Moore said.


Anyone with information is asked to call the ECSO AT 254-965-3338.
