PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A McMinnville man reported missing by his wife over the weekend has been found dead from an apparent suicide.

Sheriff Tim Svenson said early Tuesday that a vehicle belonging to 49-year-old Timothy Atwood was found several miles north of McGuire Reservoir in rural Yamhill County. A rescue team spent hours looking for Atwood before finding his body in a creek bed about 125 yards from the vehicle.

Though the investigation isn’t over, the sheriff says all indications point to suicide and it’s an “incredibly sad ending” to the search.
