New Orleans, La. - Police say a woman reported missing earlier this week was murdered.

33-year-old Tanyana Elliot was found shot to death last night in New Orleans East in the Wind Run Apartments, 12100 block of the North I-10 Service road.

Her body was inside a white Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck.

She'd been shot multiple times.

Detectives interviewed the victim's boyfriend this morning. He reported Elliot missing.

At this point, investigators are not naming a person of interest in the case.

Elliot's family says they last saw her around 11 o'clock Monday night at her home on Beekman Road, also in New Orleans East.

Police say the coroner's office will conduct an autopsy tomorrow which they hope will reveal more information about her death and her killer.
