Body Of Missing Mother Found In Remote Area

The body of an Oregon mother who went missing last month has been found in a remote area near a country road.

Jennifer Huston, 38, was last seen on July 24.

Her green SUV was found on the road near Sheridan, about 25 miles southwest of Ms Huston's home in Dundee.

Her body was recovered a short distance from the vehicle.

Oregon police say there was no evidence of foul play and no danger to the public, though they declined to elaborate on how she died.

A post on a Facebook page set up to held find Ms Huston said: "Thank you to everyone who has helped us search for Jennifer.

"We are grieving at this time and ask that we be given privacy."

Ms Huston has two small children aged two and six, according to The Oregonian newspaper.

She was last seen withdrawing a small amount of money from an ATM, fuelling her SUV and buying Gatorade, trail mix and what police described as a non-lethal amount of sleeping pills.

When she was found, she was still wearing the same clothes as the day she disappeared.
