Coroner: Williamsburg man’s body found in California; wife still missing


WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WAVY) — A body found in California’s Mojave Desert earlier this month was that of a missing Williamsburg man who had traveled cross country with his wife. 

The San Bernardino County Coroner’s Division confirmed William Schmierer’s body was found on June 16 after authorities found the Schmierers’ car abandoned three days earlier. 

Authorities have yet to find William’s wife, Susan. 

The couple were last seen at the Amboy Crater National Natural Landmark in the Eastern Mojave Desert back on June 2. 

A drone company based out of Chesapeake has been called in to search for Susan.
