OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- The body of a 47-year-old Portland woman who disappeared in the Mount Hood National Forest has been found below a cliff.

The Clackamas County sheriff's office said Saturday that Lidiya Russu went to the woods on Oct. 6 despondent. At the time, she was described as wearing only a house dress, flip-flop sandals and a scarf.

Authorities suspended a search for her on Tuesday, but family members and friends continued looking and a report about her body came to authorities on Saturday.

A sheriff's spokesman says Russu is a Romanian immigrant, and she and her husband have six children.
