WAILUA, Kauai (HawaiiNewsNow) –Kauai police confirm that a woman's body has been found in an area near where a missing California woman's rental car was discovered late Thursday. At 9:18 AM Friday morning the body was recovered in the loop road area off Kuamoo Road in Wailua.

Positive identification of the woman has not been made. Cause of death is expected to be determined through an autopsy, which has yet to be scheduled.

Late Thursday, police found a rented convertible in the same area. The car was rented by 45-year-old Nola Rebecca Thompson, a visitor from California. Kauai police and fire crews, along with a civilian canine rescue team have been conducting search and rescue efforts over the last week to locate Thompson. She was supposed to return to the mainland a week ago, but disappeared.
