Police in Auburn, Washington on Thursday discovered a body in a wooded area that they believe is that of missing “August: Osage County” actress Misty Upham.

A family member searching for the 32-year-old actress, who was last seen Oct. 5, found a body at the bottom of an embankment found near the Muckleshoot Casino at around 1 p.m., police said, and a purse recovered nearby contained Upham’s identification.

The medical examiner has not confirmed the identity, but law enforcement officials have said Upham had been staying with a relative on the Muckleshoot reservation when she disappeared.

Upham's father filed a missing person's report with the Auburn Police Department on Oct. 7, saying no one had seen or heard from the actress since Oct 5.
