SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a 19-year-old Woodland woman who was reported missing earlier this week was found Tuesday inside a car that had crashed off of Interstate 80 in Natomas.

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Carlisle tells KOVR-TV that a caller reported seeing a vehicle in a ditch just off the onramp to westbound I-80 from West El Camino Avenue.

Woodland police confirmed the woman found in the car was the same woman reported missing to them on Monday.
