A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department training mission led to the discovery of a woman's body off Mulholland Highway in a canyon in Calabasas.

A search and rescue team found the victim in her car last Sunday. Rescuers made their way down a hillside to the SUV, which was still on its roof.

Investigators said they believe the Lincoln Aviator belonged to the woman and that she had been living in it.

It's unclear why information about the discovery was held for nearly a week.

The victim's name has not been released.
