Authorities in Georgia found a body inside the car of a woman who was reported missing three months ago.

The Heard County Sheriff’s Office discovered Natalie Jones’ Chevrolet Cavalier in a wooded area near Franklin on Tuesday night, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Remains were found inside the car, but they were not immediately identified, officials said.

The 27-year-old mother of two disappeared over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, news outlets reported. She was last seen leaving a friend’s lake house in Jackson’s Gap, Alabama.

An autopsy was set to be performed on the body, the state Bureau of Investigation said.
