The body of a missing Portland woman has been found in Hawaii.
A medical examiner's office in Hawaii confirmed Tuesday the body of Ivanice Harris was found near Yokohama Bay. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Harris disappeared last Thursday in Waikiki, two days before her 29th birthday.
She planned to spend about two weeks in Hawaii to celebrate her birthday with her boyfriend and another friend, according to family members.
She was last seen at 2:15 a.m. early Thursday morning talking to a man outside a bar on Lewers Street in Waikiki, according to her sister, Holley Watson.
A Facebook page set up by the family acknowledged her death Tuesday. A family friend posted a message thanking people for their support, while asking for no calls, texts or emails to the family for the time being.
Hawaiian TV station KHON reported her body was found in some brush Monday evening at the bay and police have classified the case as an unattended death.
