SEATTLE (AP) — Police in the Seattle suburb of Auburn say they are still looking for an actress known for her roles in “August: Osage County,” “Frozen River” and “Django Unchained.”
Misty Upham’s father, Charles Upham, tells KIRO-FM (http://bit.ly/1p8Dq2w ) that his daughter was upset and erratic and had stopped taking medication for anxiety and bipolar disorder.
The 32-year-old Native American actress was reported missing by her family Oct. 6, a day after telling police she was suicidal. Her father tells the station he doesn’t believe his daughter would kill herself.
She has been listed as missing in the Washington Crime Information Center database.
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.
