Police: Body found near river could be actress

SEATTLE (AP) - Police in the Seattle suburb of Auburn say they believe they have found the body of missing actress Misty Upham, known for her roles in "August: Osage County," ''Frozen River" and "Django Unchained."

Police spokesman Steve Stocker says a body was found in a ravine near the White River. He says items with Upham's name on them were found nearby, but officials are waiting for the medical examiner to make a positive identification. A family friend found the body.

The 32-year-old Native American actress was reported missing by her family Oct. 6, a day after telling police she was suicidal.

The family says Upham had moved to the Seattle area to help care for her father, who's recovering from a stroke. She had been staying on the Muckleshoot reservation.
