CENTRALIA, Wash. — Authorities say the body of a Washington woman who was reported missing more than a week ago has been found on the Oregon coast.

The Centralia Chronicle reports that 47-year-old Chrystal D. Chipman was found dead several miles from her vehicle, which was parked in a wooded area east of Newport. A logger working in the area spotted the vehicle.

Centralia police said Monday that there were no obvious signs of trauma to her body, which was found Friday by a Lincoln County sheriff's deputy.

Centralia police had earlier asked for the public's help in locating Chipman, saying she has a history of medical issues that required medication. She was reported missing Aug. 18.
