The Plumas County Sheriff's Office says they've arrested a woman for helping her daughter end her life.

They said a 52-year-old Etta Elmore was found dead in the woods on Lee Summit in Plumas County by a California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer.

She had been reported missing out of Nevada County. Plumas County Sheriff's Office says CHP contacted the mother of the deceased on June 17 and she didn't have any information on her daughter's whereabouts.

On June 18, Plumas County Sheriff's Office said the mother was at Plumas County Social Service's building seeking help for being stranded.

The Sheriff's Office responded to Lee Summit where Elmore was found 50 feet over an embankment off a dirt road that parallels Highway 70. They said there were no signs of injuries.

An interview with the mother revealed she had helped her daughter in ending her life by giving her prescription medication. The Sheriff's Office says an investigation found Elmore had made previous suicidal threats but had made no attempt to take her life until now.

They said there are no others suspects at this time and an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

The mother, 67-year-old Michelle Powers form Lake Wildwood was arrested and taken to the Plumas County Correctional Facility. She is being held on $250,000 bail.

The Plumas County Sheriff's Office says they would like to extend their condolences to the family of the deceased.
