ST. PAUL — Family and friends of a woman whose body was found hidden in a car in an impound lot said she left her St. Paul home about two weeks ago and never returned.

Family and friends identified the woman as 18-year-old Brittany Clardy. St. Paul police spokesman Paul Paulos confirmed her identity Sunday to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Clardy’s body was found Thursday, eight days after the car was towed from Brooklyn Park. Authorities say the towing company did not see her body in the car.

Details about how she died haven’t been released.
