The body of a missing Farmington Hills, Michigan, woman has been discovered on the roof of a Home Depot store.

Elizabeth Hock, 23, was last seen alive on Sept. 6, WWJ reports. Attempts by her sister to reach her after that date were unsuccessful.

After Hock did not communicate with her family for several days, her father Ed Hock said they began to suspect something bad might have happened.

On Sept. 15, Hock’s body was found on the roof of a Home Depot store in Commerce Township, Michigan, shopping center.

The Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed she had been dead for several days.

Police found Hock’s car, with her purse and ID inside, in the shopping center’s parking lot two days before her body was located on the store’s roof.

An autopsy of Hock’s body found no evidence of foul play, according to a representative of the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office, WWJ reports.

Her cause of death will be determined when toxicology results are completed.

Some of Hock’s personal belongings were found on the roof of a PetSmart store next door to the Home Depot where her body was discovered. Her keys were inside the PetSmart.

Hock was enrolled in business classes at Oakland Community College. Her coworkers at the Birmingham Athletic Club described her as “super, super nice.”

Police do not consider Hock’s death to be suspicious.
