A body believed to be missing actress Misty Upham has been found in a ravine in the Seattle suburb of Auburn. Items with Upham's name on them were found nearby.

The Associated Press reported police spokesman Steve Stocker as saying the body was found near the White River around 1 p.m. Thursday.

Officials were waiting for the medical examiner to make a positive identification and determine the cause of death, Stocker said.

A family friend found the body while a group of friends and family were searching in the area.

Upham was known for her roles in "August: Osage County," ''Frozen River" and "Django Unchained."

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

Misty Upham's father, Charles Upham, told KIRO-FM his daughter was upset and erratic and had stopped taking medication for anxiety and bipolar disorder.

The family said 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.
