MARINA, Calif. – The body of a missing woman was found inside a car that had been sitting in a Walmart parking lot for three months.

KSBW says that Lauren Moss had gone missing on Nov. 13, 2015 after she left a rehab center.

It wasn't until Feb. 3 that Moss' body was found by Walmart employees inside a Volkswagen Jetta in the parking lot.

Surveillance cameras that only went back to Dec. 2015 showed that the car had been in the same parking spot the entire time.

Police say that since the car had dark-tinted windows and a sunshade above the dashboard, it would have been difficult to see Moss' body inside.

It's believed that Moss committed suicide as a suicide note was left for her family and a drug needle was found inside the car.
