GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Now, what happened on board the Joe Cool? The fishing boat was found empty six days ago, and there are no good signs. In fact, all signs suggest something very sinister has happened aboard that boat. The boat's two passengers were found floating in a raft, but no sign of the four-person crew.

Tonight, we are learning more about Kirby Archer, one of the two men who chartered the boat. Michaele Archer is Kirby Archer's wife. Michaele joins us in Memphis. Welcome, Michaele.


VAN SUSTEREN: Michaele, when was the last time you saw your husband?

ARCHER: Back in January.

VAN SUSTEREN: Is that before — before the incident involving the Wal-Mart, where he is accused of taking a little over $90,000?


VAN SUSTEREN: Were — were you — were things fine between the two of you?

ARCHER: Well, they seemed to be going pretty good.

VAN SUSTEREN: Were you living together or were you separated?

ARCHER: We were living together.

VAN SUSTEREN: So what happened, just one day he just didn't come home?

ARCHER: Well, I know there's — there are allegations out there of child molestation, and so I think with all that, he just got scared and ran.

VAN SUSTEREN: And until he got picked up on the raft, did you have any idea where he was or had you heard from him?

ARCHER: I had no idea where he was and hadn't heard anything.

VAN SUSTEREN: What do you make of the fact of the allegation (INAUDIBLE) people are suspicious that he's involved in killing four people. He has not been charged with it, but people are certainly suspicious. Does that sound like the man you're married to?

ARCHER: No, it sure doesn't.

VAN SUSTEREN: What do you think of that?

ARCHER: He's never been the type to harm anybody else. You know, I've never seen a violent side of him. I would just hope he wouldn't do that, do something like that.

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you know the man he was found with?


VAN SUSTEREN: Have you ever heard his name? Never heard his name?

ARCHER: I've never heard of him.

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you plan on contacting your husband? He's currently in custody in Florida. Do you plan on contacting him?

ARCHER: At this time, I have no way to contact him. I'm waiting word to see if he's even going to be allowed to talk to anybody.

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, he certainly should be allowed to talk. He has not been convicted of any crimes, although he is certainly facing a lot of substantial problems. And of course, he has his problems back in Arkansas, being a fugitive. But Michaele, good luck, and I hope you do get to talk to your husband.

ARCHER: Thank you.
