Since November, family and authorities tried to find Lauren Jessie Moss.

She had gone missing, and officials in Monterey County said they could not find her — until this week.

Investigators said they found Moss inside a car that had been parked outside a Wal-Mart store in Salinas for months.

Police checked video footage and saw the car had been parked there since December, KSBW-TV reported.

Moss was last seen in Seaside on Nov. 13, the same day she left a rehab center.

Salinas police officers said her death was likely a suicide.

Police say Moss' car had dark tinted windows and a sunshade over the dashboard, making it hard to spot anyone inside.

A Wal-Mart spokesman said the store does not have personnel patrolling the parking lot but does have 24-hour surveillance cameras.
