(KMOV) -- A 25-year-old woman was arrested after she admitted to having sex with a 15-year-old boy in Lebanon, Mo.

Police said a Lebanon officer found the suspect, Natalie Westefeld, and the juvenile undressed in the back of a Ford Fusion in a parking lot. When the officer asked the teen how old he was, he said he was about to turn 15-years-old. Police then brought the teen and Westefeld to the Lebanon Police Department for questioning.

Westefeld said she believed the teen was 20-years-old and that the two of them met on a mobile dating app. When the teen told Westefeld he was 15-years-old, she said she thought he was joking and assumed he was 18-years-old at the youngest.

During the questioning, the teen said he would sneak out of his home and meet Westefeld in the parking lot of Lebanon High School to have sex.

Authorities said Westefeld confided in the teen that she was married, but her marriage was in trouble.

Westefeld admitted to giving the teen money because he said his father was abusive and that he needed money for repairs for his car. The two also admitted to sending naked pictures to each other, but when police searched their phones, no pictures could be found.
