A body believed to be that of actress Misty Upham, who may be best known for her role in August: Osage County, has been found today in Auburn, Washington.

Upham's parents reported to police that their daughter had been missing since Oct. 6 and was suicidal, according to KIRO TV. She was last seen walking alone from an apartment.

A search team organized by the family was looking for Upham on Thursday in the forest and came upon her purse and ID. They found the body by a ravine, over a cliff, and called police.

The actress had been living in the Muckleshoot reservation in the Seattle area to care for her father, who recently had a stroke.
