A family is devastated to find out a loved one whom they considered missing over the weekend was actually left for dead inside a home she shared with her boyfriend and five other people.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- An investigation is underway after a woman was found dead inside a mobile home in east Harris County, according to deputies.

Harris County sheriff's deputies were called to a mobile home park in the 15600 block of Market Street at 10:24 a.m. Monday.

They discovered a 35-year-old woman dead inside a closet in the mobile home, according to Sgt. Sidney Miller.

The woman's family identified her as Insy Cruz Flores, whom they had been looking for several days.

"(Monday), my mom called me to say, 'Hey, have you heard anything from Insy?'" Fransisco Flores, the brother of Insy, said. As a result, family members filed a missing person's report and drove to the mobile home to check on her.

That's when they made a gruesome discovery.

"My other sister broke the door (in) the bedroom, go inside, in the closet, (found) my sister is dead," Flores said. "You know (her body) was rolled in the blanket."

According to investigators, there had been previous reports of domestic violence between Flores and her live-in boyfriend at the mobile home.

The live-in boyfriend has not been found, but investigators said he is wanted for questioning.

Insy's dark blue Ford Escape, with the temporary Texas license plate 35826K3, was missing from the mobile home, officials said.

Flores and her live-in boyfriend lived in the mobile home with five other individuals. It is unclear what the relationship was between them and Flores.

Investigators are talking to family members and witnesses at the scene, working to gather more information.
