California: Missing Palo Alto woman Wamaitha Kaboga-Miller found dead in a car

California officials discovered in a car found hidden among the bushes down on a steep embankment on eastbound Highway 84 over the weekend. Inside was the body of a missing Palo Alto woman.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Coroner identified the body as Wamaitha Kaboga-Miller, 66, from Palo Alto.

The woman was last seen on August 17, driving east on University Avenue after leaving the Country Time Market. Police’s missing woman report noted that she was considered to be at-risk because she was using numerous prescription medications, which she had left at home.

CHP officers stumbled onto the wreckage of Kaboga-Miller’s silver Mercedes Benz while investigating another unrelated accident.

Officers were called to a State Route 84 Eastbound, east of Thornton Avenue, on Sunday afternoon to assist victims in a rollover accident that went off the roadway.

Police observed a person seated inside in the driver seat. Fire and Medical personnel were on scene to assist; however, they determined the person had been there for an extended period of time and was dead.

At this time the cause of the fatal collision along with the time and day it occurred were still under investigation.

“We are saddened by the tragic news that #PaloAlto resident Wamaitha Kaboga-Miller was found deceased in her car off of eastbound Highway 84,” Palo Alto police wrote Monday on Twitter.

In a statement, the CHP added: “This is a sad day and not the outcome any of us ever wished for. Our hearts and prayers go out to Ms. Kaboga-Miller’s family.”
