Several weeks after Annie Schmidt was reported missing in Oregon, family members said Saturday her remains have been found near the bottom of a cliff.

Annie Schmidt, the daughter of The Piano Guys member Jon Schmidt, disappeared after going hiking in Oregon in October. The woman had recently moved from Utah to Oregon.

Saturday Annie’s father, Jon Schmidt, posted in the group Find Annie Schmidt to say a medical examiner has informed them they have positively identified the human remains found Friday as Annie.

The cause of death was determined to be accidental, according to Schmidt’s post.

“You have lived this trial with us and we pray that this may bring a greater level of resolution and peace for all of us,” Jon Schmidt stated.

Friday night, dog teams located human remains below Munra Point, and while a medical examiner had not yet confirmed the identity at that point, family members said items belonging to Annie were also found.

“We can positively identify the clothing and personal items found at the site as belonging to Annie,” Schmidt stated in part on Friday.
