Bend Police have confirmed that a body has been found near U.S. Highway 20 and Hamby Road.

Police have not identified the body, but the discovery comes almost a week after police announced they were searching for 42-year-old Bend woman Pivoyne Castro-Luna, who had not been heard from since March 9.

Police were also searching for Honorio De Horta-Frias, 40, as a person of interest in Castro-Luna’s disappearance. They believe he left town and headed south. De Horta-Frias has not yet been located.
