Michigan police said a 23-year-old woman missing since Sept. 6 was found dead.

Elizabeth Hock’s body was discovered in Commerce Township on the morning of Sept. 15 and foul play isn’t suspected, reported CBS Detroit.

Witnesses said Hock was found on the roof a Home Depot store in the Commerce Crossing Shopping Center, and she was likely dead for a few days. The cause of death is unknown, and Farmington Hills police aren’t sure how Hock made it onto the roof.

Hock was last seen on Sept. 6 after spending the entire day with her sister, Emilie Hock.

“Twenty minutes after the time it would have taken her to get home—and I spoke with her and she said she was home and she said she was okay, and that was the last anyone has seen or spoken to her,” said Emilie.

Hock didn’t show up for work on Friday and her family became worried when they didn’t hear from her.

Police issued a be-on-the-lookout bulletin for Hock’s 1999 Gold Ford Crown Victoria, which investigators found on Sept. 13 in the parking lot of the PetSmart in the Commerce Crossing Shopping Center. Her purse and identification card were found inside of the car.

An autopsy is underway to determine Hock’s cause of death.

According to CBS News, an autopsy result is expected Friday.

Hock was described by her coworkers as “super, super nice,” according to Fox News. She was also taking business classes at Oakland Community College.
