Tragic news out of Washington state. Searchers found the body of missing actress Misty Upham at the bottom of a 150-foot embankment in Auburn, Washington, after she went missing 11 days earlier. Her family is absolutely devastated and our hearts go out to them during this time.

NBC affiliate King 5 was at a vigil for Upham and brings us more information.

According to a report by Native News Online, funeral arrangements have been made for Misty Upham.

Her body will be taken to the Pentecostal Church at Muckleshoot, located at 39731 Auburn Enumclaw Road, SE in Auburn at noon on Wednesday. There will be wakes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 25, at 2:00 p.m. at the church.
