You sure the CF wasn't ejected by accident?  Uptime of 46 weeks.  Either the CF is faulty, the CF slot is faulty or someone pulling a prank and the CF was ejected.  Manual intervention is the way to go.

Hello,

From the show version output, it seems like the flash card is not recognized by the hardware. Most likely it is a bad flash card issue or it could be a bad slot on the router as well. If you have a spare flash (know to be good) card, please try it on the router. If that is also not recognized, I would suspect the router itselve. You might have to get the router replaced.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT
