One of the actresses from Django Unchained has been found dead near the White River in Washington. The news that MIsty Upham had been found dead was confirmed to KIRO TV Editor Cory Minderhout. She was 32 years old.
The actress is known 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 telling police she was suicidal.
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 at a relative's apartment on the Muckleshoot reservation.
Tracy Rector, friend of the victim and Upham family spokesperson, said relatives and members of the native community organized Thursday's search.
A search party of three, including one family member, was canvassing the forest when they found Upham's purse and ID. They searched a ravine, discovered a body and called 911.
