A family spokeswoman has confirmed that a body found in a ravine near Seattle is 32-year-old actress Misty Upham.
Upham, known for roles in August: Osage County and Django Unchained, had been missing since 6 October. Her body was found following a search of the area by friends and family. Her father, Charles Upham, confirmed her identity to the authorities.
The Native American actress was understood to have suffered from bipolar disorder. Police Commander Steve Stocker said there was presently no evidence or information "to believe there is foul play."
At the time of her disappearance, her father expressed concern that the actress was off her medication and may have been suicidal.
However, film-maker Tracy Rector - a long-time friend and spokesperson for the family, said: "The family has stated that, after seeing the body, they still do not feel that Misty Upham committed suicide."
The body was found by a family member during a search of the area on Thursday. A purse with identification belonging to Upham was reportedly found at the scene.
