    I haven't been able to locate any real confirmation that the car definitely wasn't there prior to yesterday. Mostly just a lot of speculation and people saying "I drive this road every day - that car was NOT there". In reality - if the car was behind that little tree line, I don't think there is any way someone would have ever seen it from the road. I suspect LE will give an update soon. I would think they should be able to tell approximately how long the car was there just based on the growth (or lack thereof) around it.

    Natalie's Vehicle, possible remains have been located in Heard County.
    Sure sounds like her family/friends suspect foul play.

    Nothing there - is there a way to tell what date this was taken?

    Launch the Google Earth app on your desktop, search for any location in the sidebar and, this is important, zoom in an area as much as possible. Now hover your mouse over the map and you should see the capture date of that satellite image in the status bar as seen in the above screenshot.

    According to the internet: According to the Google Earth blog, Google Earth updates about once a month. However, this doesn't mean that every image is updated once a month – far from it. In fact, the average map data is between one and three years old.

    I just looked at my house via Google Earth and the view is at least 3 years old, and I live in a MUCH more urban area than the location where Natalie was found. I suspect that image could easily be that old or older.

    darn - so we have to rely on what people are saying regarding when the car was seen at this location - or maybe vegetation grew up around it and that will help date it? I thought the car would have been either in water - or hidden in a garage/barn - I would like to see pictures of how the people found the car before LE arrived.

    The coordinates are 33.389321, -85.172261 if anyone else wants to try to find the date on Google Earth. I followed the instructions, but it's not working for me.

    I agree. Anyone driving with her decomposed body in there would have a hard time breathing with the smell. Also, with such a noticeable car driving it anywhere would have been high risk.

    And why would someone leave a body in the car knowing full well it would eventually be found???

    Why didn't the car get torched or the body disposed of ????

    Couple of scenarios come to mind :

    1 - Really, really dumb criminals. We've seen it many times before this.

    2- Possibly there was no foul play involved. Could have been accidental or intentional - no need (or maybe chance) to torch the car if no one else was involved.

    Although my hinky meter is still up due to the reported cast of characters in Natalie's life, there is the possibility it isn't foul play. Trying to keep an open mind here.

    At any rate, I'm glad that GBI will be doing the autopsy (reported on Find Natalie page) as I believe their expertise and resources will be needed.

    I'm so sad to hear this news. IMHO, she failed to negotiate the sharp curve in the road and was very possibly over the speed limit that the vehicle ended up in thick brush. I think we'd all hoped that she's be found long before this because of the color of the car. RIP Natalie. God Bless those boys as well as her grieving family...

    The fact that Natalie and her car were found the day after the guys from Adventures With Purpose arrived in the area to do a highly-publicized search is, in my opinion, no coincidence. On the live stream, I saw the top of the car with my own eyes from across the street. I’m very anxious to get more information.

    Georgia Mom Who Vanished After July 4 Party Is Found Dead in Her Car in Busy Area, Says Family

    Georgia Mom Who Vanished After July 4 Party Is Found Dead in Her Car in Busy Area, Says Family
    The remains of missing mom Natalie Jones were found in a well-traveled area

    By KC Baker

    When Jones vanished and her phone last pinged in Heard County, officials – and family members - scoured the area looking for Jones and her conspicuously-colored car, but they came up empty.

    Local residents told Fox 5 Atlanta that the area where her car was found is well-traveled and that it wasn’t there on Monday.

    Although Jones had texted her friend that she’d “made it,” Heard County Sheriff's Office Lt. Danny Boswell pointed out that “she didn’t say where she made it [to]. She just said, ‘I made it. Thanks.’ There were no further communications after that other than her receiving texts.”

    Search YT for Adventures with Purpose. It's a very long video - recommend starting around the 2 hour mark. Adventures with Purpose has been mentioned in MSM articles.
