It is possible the body recently found in Seattle could be "August: Osage County" actress Misty Upham's, Seattle Times reported.

After canvassing the forest, a family member who had been searching for found a purse containing the missing actress's identification and the body at the bottom of a 150-foot embankment near Forest Ridge Drive and the White River, Auburn police reported.

The 32-year-old actress's friend and Upham family spokesperson, Tracy Rector, said the native community along with relatives and members organized a search on Oct. 16, Thursday.

To help take care of her father, Charles Upham, who is recovering from a stroke, the actress had moved to Seattle and had been staying on the Muckleshoot reservation at a relative's apartment.

In 2013, police responded to several suicide calls at that apartment, according to Auburn Police Commander Steve Stocker, Stuff reported.

The father admitted to KIRO-FM she had stopped taking medication for bipolar disorder and anxiety, and recently showed erratic behavior.

While the medical examiner's office identification of the body and the cause and manner of death is yet to be confirmed, Stocker also said there is a "good chance" the body found over a cliff in a wooded area is Upham's.

It has been 12 days since Upham was last seen walking alone from an apartment near Auburn, which is about 30 kilometres south of Seattle.

On Oct. 6, she was listed as a missing person in the Washington Crime Information Center database after her father reported her missing.

Upham was born in Montana but she moved to Seattle with her family when she was eight. She is known for starring in Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" and the crime drama "Frozen River," which gave her an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her supporting role.

In "August: Osage County," the Native American played a housekeeper named Johnna Monevata who takes care of Meryl Streep's character, Violet.

Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor also starred in film "August: Osage Country."
