PORTLAND, Ore. – A missing woman from Portland was found dead in her car in a mall parking lot early Monday morning, deputies said.

Elizabeth Hoppes, 47, was found by a security officer in the Clackamas Town Center parking lot at around 12:30 a.m., according to Clackamas County Sgt. Adam Phillips.

The Clackamas County Medical Examiner said Hoppes’ death appears to be natural. An autopsy will be performed.

Hoppes had been missing since Friday morning when she did not arrive for work.

Family members were especially concerned because Hoppes was overdue for in-home dialysis and needed other medical treatment.
