BEND, OR -- The search for a missing Plainview-area woman came to a sad end, last week. Nickel Bird was reported missing Tuesday, touching off a search effort by family, friends and the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office. 

 
Friday morning, family members reported finding a mountain bike less than a mile from their home, near BLM land. Detectives followed footprints from the bike to a small camp where the 24-year-old woman’s body was found. 
 
The Medical Examiner is working to determine cause of death, but investigators do not suspect foul play. They say the use of prescription medication and exposure to the elements were likely contributing factors.
