The body of a Utah CEO who was missing since Monday, Oct. 7, was found inside a parked car according to a family friend.

Erin Valenti, 33, was discovered dead in her car in San Jose on Saturday. The car was found at 6500 block of Bose Lane. It is the same place from where Valenti had made her last phone call. The San Jose police are conducting an investigation in this area.

The police are still investigating how she ended up in this neighborhood. The cause of death is still unknown.

Valenti went missing on Monday, while she was on her way to San Jose International Airport to head back to Utah. Her family said in a statement on Facebook to call off the search for Erin as she was found.

"We all greatly appreciate the effort and support people have provided. The family will release more information as they are able to,” a statement on Missing Pieces Network said.

"Many of you have seen that the search for Erin has been called off. While we were praying for a different outcome, we are so appreciative for the help and support you have given,” the family said.

Valenti was the CEO of Salt Lake City-based Tech company called Tinker Ventures.

According to her husband, the disappearance was not in line with her character. Her family said Valenti sounded confused and disjointed when they talked on Monday night over the phone, as she drove through San Jose.

Valenti’s mother said her daughter’s thoughts seemed disconnected as they talked on and off on Monday. “Her thoughts were disconnected. She talked a mile a minute. She’d say I’m coming home for Thanksgiving, then in the next she was saying she’s in the Matrix.”

Her phone had been switched off since Monday.

"Please remember Erin as the beautiful, smart, funny woman that she was. I don't have any details that have not been in the media. I'm sure that Harrison will thank you himself when he is able, but please be patient,” her family said in the statement.
