The El Paso County Sheriff's Office has found the car of a missing woman, and they say due to the condition of the vehicle there are "grave concerns" about her safety.

On Monday investigators released where they found the car and what they found inside.

They said Lori Lee Layman's vehicle was discovered abandoned at the Pebble Creek Apartments on 2005 South El Paso Avenue. The vehicle appeared to be emptied and they found blood inside.

The car is described as a 2002 Gold Kia van.

Investigators first started looking for 53-year-old Lori Lee Layman on May 9th. Layman is 5-foot-2 and weighs about 150 pounds.

Layman was last seen on April 22 at the America's Best Value and Suites on Garden of the Gods Road in Colorado Springs. The last ping on her cell phone was on May 11 in the Colorado Springs area close to North Nevada.

The sheriff's office says Layman had been living in her car, and was known to travel between Washington, Idaho and Colorado. They also say she has a "very high risk lifestyle" but they didn't give further information.

If you have any information on her whereabouts, or have seen anyone driving a 2002 Gold Kia van in the area of Pebble Creek Apartments please contact Detective James Vidmar of the El Paso County Sheriff's Office by calling 719-390-5555.
