Police found her body, and, according to reports, they also found a purse with identifying items was found alongside the body near the White River, on Thursday afternoon.

Charles Upham, her father, confirmed her identity. Steve Stocker, Police Commander, said there was no evidence “to believe there is foul play.”

Soon after she was missing, Charles told radio station KIRO-FM that she stopped taking medication for anxiety and bipolar disorder, however, he did not believe she would commit suicide. Police had responded to a suicide call at her residence in the days before her disappearance.

The cause of death is not known yet.
