MANZANITA - The Tillamook County Sheriff's Office has identified a Portland woman whose body was recovered on Neahkahnie Mountain cliffs Saturday.

Kathleen Segal, 48, was reported by her family as missing Thursday from the Portland area, said Todd Anderson, Tillamook County sheriff. "It was also reported that she was potentially suicidal," he said.

Her body was found on the mountain north of Manzanita shortly after 11 a.m. on Friday but because of intense storm activity, high-angle response team members could not complete the recovery until Saturday morning, Anderson said.

"The case is still under investigation, but for the most part it's an apparent suicide," he said.
