Thursday morning, joggers reported finding the body of a female down an embankment just north of the City of Dayton. It was at the onramp from Wallace Road to Highway 18 and Foster Road.
Based on the physical descriptors and clothing, the Yamhill County Sheriff's Office says the body appears to be that of Meighan Cordie, who was last seen on the evening of August 18th, approximately 8 miles south of Dayton on Grand Island.
Yamhill County Search and Rescue and a large contingency of volunteers searched for Cordie for several days after her disappearance.
Detectives and investigators from the Yamhill County Major Crimes Response Team are currently on scene and working the investigation. The Oregon State Field Investigations Team has been requested to assist with forensic evidence recovery.
