Nearly two weeks after she went missing, an Oregon woman was found dead along a rural road and the state medical examiner's office said she committed suicide by asphyxiation.

The Associated Press reported Newberg-Dundee police as saying toxicology results are not yet available for Jennifer Huston, 38, of Dundee, but an empty box of sleeping aids was found at the scene.

Video footage from the day Huston disappeared showed her withdrawing a small amount of money from an ATM, fueling her SUV and buying Gatorade, trail mix and what police earlier described as a nonlethal amount of sleeping pills. She was found wearing the same clothes she wore July 24, the day she vanished.

Detectives and the medical examiner think the married mother of two young boys died "fairly close" to the time she was reported missing on July 25, police Capt. Jeff Kosmicki said in a statement. Detectives also found a note addressed to the woman's family.

Her SUV was found Tuesday, parked along a rural logging road about 25 miles southwest of her home. Her body was found about 40 yards from the vehicle. Kosmicki did not immediately return a call seeking additional details on the report.

Detectives have not established any connection between Huston and the owners of the property where her vehicle was found, police said. The fuel gauge registered full, and there was no evidence of a crash or damage to the SUV.

In a statement released through police, Huston's family said, "Our hearts ache today. We have lost our first-born child. We have lost a wife and a mother.

"We don't know what led Jennifer to this dark place and to this end and perhaps never will understand this.

"We are incredibly thankful to family, friends, community and media for their searching, supporting and getting the information out that led to locating Jennifer's car and finding Jennifer."

Relatives said through police that they wanted to be left alone to grieve.

Huston's disappearance sparked an intense search and extensive Internet speculation.

Her husband, Kallen Huston, told reporters shortly after his wife disappeared that she had complained of headaches in recent days. The couple would have celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary next week.

Dundee is about 25 miles southwest of Portland.
