Heilaman was last seen on Jan. 13 after she drove around a law enforcement road block, then exited her vehicle and reportedly jumped into the Confluence from the Northern Fork American River Bridge near Auburn when she was swept away by the fast moving current. 

The investigation has determined that there is no evidence of foul play in her death.
