Misty Upham, a Native American actress with roles in “August: Osage County,” “Frozen River”, has been missing since she left her sister's apartment in Muckleshoot, Washington more than a week ago, her family said.
In a statement posted to the actress' Facebook page, Charles Upham said his daughter has bipolar disorder and bouts of anxiety and depression, but he does not believe she would harm herself.
“As her father I do not fear she committed suicide,” he wrote.
“I think Misty may have walked into nearby woods and got hurt and can't reach help or I think she may have had an encounter with someone who may have caused her harm. I believe she would contact us if she could,” he added.
“I feel that if she is found soon she may have a chance to survive. But time is slipping away.”
According to her father, she was last seen wearing a purple sweater, black t-shirt, grey sweat
pants and silver tennis shoes. She has cut her hair short. She has scars on both arms and a birth mark on the back near her neck. She was carrying a white cell phone and a California ID.
Upham's family asks anyone with information about her disappearance that could be helpful to contact her father at [email protected] or the Auburn, Washington, Police Department at (253) 288-2121.
