(Newser) – The search for a missing Oregon mother who vanished while running errands is over with the discovery of her body near her SUV in a remote area, reports the Oregonian. Police say there's no sign of foul play in the death of Jennifer Huston. The 38-year-old disappeared on July 24 after telling her husband that she was off to run some errands in Dundee, near Portland. Surveillance video showed that she withdrew $100 from an ATM, bought items including over-the-counter sleeping pills from a drug store, and gassed up her SUV before dropping out of sight.

A property owner in Sheridan, about 20 miles away, found her vehicle this morning on a logging road, and police discovered her body nearby, reports Reuters. Her husband had said that she was suffering from headaches the last few days before her disappearance, but that she was in good health otherwise. The Hustons were set to celebrate their 10-year anniversary later this month, reports KING5, and their two sons, ages 6 and 2, both have birthdays next month.
