SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The car belonging to a woman reported missing for nearly a week was found Thursday in San Diego.

San Diego police said 37-year-old Julia Jacobsen, who served six years in the Army, notified a friend via text message on Saturday that she was in Palm Springs. Her actual location at the time of the text is unconfirmed, police said.

10News learned a surveillance camera captured Jacobsen at a 7-Eleven store on Aero Drive at around 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 2, but she has not been seen since.

On Thursday afternoon, officers found Jacobsen's car abandoned at 2600 Monroe Avenue in University Heights. The car was unlocked and all of the windows were rolled down.

Jacobsen's family from North Dakota told 10News she has never disappeared before and they are extremely concerned for her safety. Family members believe she has her dog, Boogie, with her.

Jacobsen is white, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. She has a tattoo on her hip of a crab holding a flower.

A friend said Jacobsen goes by the last name Ware.

10News learned Jacobsen's brother arrived in San Diego Thursday night to help look for her.
