DUNDEE, Ore., Aug. 6 (UPI) -- An Oregon woman who disappeared in late July has been found dead near a logging road about 25 miles from her home.

Police discovered the body of Jennifer Huston on Tuesday near Sheridan, Ore., after a property owner reported her SUV on his land. Brian Casey, chief of the Newberg-Dundee Police Department, said there were no signs Huston had been a victim of violence.

"Because this is pending death investigation, we are not releasing the apparent cause of death,'' Casey said at a news conference late Tuesday.

Huston, 38, disappeared July 24 from her home in Dundee, 25 miles southwest of Portland in the Willamette Valley. She was captured by surveillance cameras at an ATM, a drug store and a gas station before vanishing.

The search became a national story with reports she had been spotted on a ferry to the San Juan Islands in Washington State. Her husband, Kallen, appealed publicly for information.

Huston had two young sons.
