Charles Upham, father of award-winning actress Misty Upham, who has been missing since last Sunday, says he fears she may have committed suicide.

Charles describes his daughter's behavior as "erratic" following a change in medication she was taking. "She told me and her mom that we didn't have to worry about her any more," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I thought it sounded suicidal myself, so I called the police. She's always been a suicidal person."

On the other hand, there may be reason for hope: In the latest posting to Misty's Facebook page, Charles writes that the family has been "chasing down leads" and has heard of "possible sightings in Seattle." He asks those in the area to search "the wooded areas near the Muckleshoot Casino."
