    Alexis Gabe (24) missing from the Bay area of CA since 1/26/2022

    https://www.kron4.com/news/bay-area/...-oakley-woman/

    Wednesday will mark one week since Alexis Gabe was last seen.

    On Tuesday, investigators searched the last place she was likely seen before her disappearance.

    Antioch police removed several large bags from a home on Benttree Way as part of a search warrant

    The home is believed to belong to the ex-boyfriend of 24-year-old Alexis Gabe and the last place she was seen.

    ?A statement was made by her ex-boyfriend that she was at his house until 9 p.m. on Wednesday night. After that, she did not return home. Yes, the police have questioned him more than once and have taken his statement. We are not in contact with him.?

    Among some of the items removed by investigators from the home on Tuesday was a vacuum cleaner.

    Investigators hope the items can provide answers on where to find Gabe.

    The next day, her car was found, abandoned with the key still in the ignition.

    ?Police are still looking into the person who dropped off her car, and they are looking into all digital imagery from surrounding cameras in the ex-boyfriend?s neighborhood and in the location where her car was found.?

    In the days since Alexis disappeared, search teams have combed parts of Contra Costa County putting up flyers and looking for any signs of her.

    Alexis is described as an Asian woman, standing 5-feet-7-inches tall, weighing 170-pounds.

    She was last seen wearing a white tank top, silver/black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and green and white shoes.

    Oakley police say finding Alexis is their top priority. So far, the department has not publicly named a suspect or person of interest.

    Non-profit to help organize search for missing 24-year-old

    It's been more than three weeks since 24-year-old Alexis Gabe went missing near Antioch. Her family says there have been no big leads in her case, but police continue to reassure the community that the disappearance is their number one priority.

    Gabe didn't come home on Jan. 26. She was reported missing the next day, and her family found her car with the keys in the ignition, abandoned on a dead end street in Oakley. They said Gabe has no connection to that street, and there hasn't been much new information in the investigation since then.

    So next week the Klaas Kids Foundation will come to the Bay Area to help organize and train volunteers to search for Alexis. The non-profit was formed after the abduction of 12-year-old Polly Klaas in Petaluma in 1994. The case led to one of the largest manhunts in U.S. history.

    Alexis' brother, Gwyn Marqus Gabe, and his girlfriend, Morgan Strenfel, have been leading the efforts to find Alexis.

    On Feb. 1, police searched Alexis' boyfriend's house. Her family said she was last seen there, but so far police haven't given the family any results from that search.

    "We want to respect the investigation, we don’t want to step on toes, we don’t want to interfere in any way. But like what can we do? Because we can’t do nothing," said Strenfel.

    The search led by the Klaas Kids Foundation could help bring the case even further, built to compliment the police investigation.

    "In our opinion they at least lead to finding something, right? There are always clues, sometimes they’re just intangible clues. They’re not necessarily the ones that we were wanting, but it does give law enforcement a better picture of where a subject is not," said Brad Dennis, president of Klaas Kids Foundation.

    Dennis said they will also train Alexis' family and friends to keep looking.

    "At the end of this, we want them to be able to have all the skill sets to be able to continue to do this," said Dennis.

    $10,000 Reward Offered In Alexis Gabe Missing Person Case In Oakley; New Video Shows Person of Interest

    Oakley’s police chief, mayor, and the parents of Alexis Gabe, a woman missing since January, appealed for the public’s help in finding her Thursday, and the city announced a $10,000 reward for information in the case.

    The 24-year-old Oakley resident was last seen on January 26 in the city of Antioch. Her car was found days in Oakley on Trenton St. and Carrington Dr. in a cul-de-sac off Oakley Road. The car was unlocked with the keys inside.

    Nearby surveillance video shows someone getting out of the car and walking away. At a press conference Thursday, police showed a new surveillance video of a person walking away from where the car was found, hoping to generate additional leads.

    Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard said the investigation has consumed his department since Gabe’s disappearance, calling it the biggest case in the history of the department. He said he has reassigned personnel to the investigation and received assistance from numerous agencies, especially from the Antioch Police Department.

    “We have now reached the point that is beyond frustrating for all of us. We have simply run out of investigative leads to follow,” said Beard. “We have exhausted all investigative avenues and we are now seeking the assistance of the public.”

    “We have literally searched land, sea and air for Alexis,” he added.

    Police have been in contact with both family members and people who were with her before she disappeared. Det. Tyler Horn said the person seen in the surveillance video is a person of interest in the case, one of several persons of interest being investigated.

    “The individual walked away on foot from Alexis’s vehicle, through the city of Oakley, and appeared to walk back toward the city of Antioch,” said Horn. “The Oakley Police Department can officially state that we believe Alexis’s disappearance was not by accident or by choice. We strongly suspect foul play, and we seek the public’s assistance in locating Alexis,” said Horn.

    The person of interest who police believe was the person who abandoned Gabe’s vehicle is described as dark-skinned, 5-foot-11 to 6-feet tall, slim build, wearing a large jacket and a beanie or a cap, along with an N95-style face mask with a beard protruding from underneath. The surveillance video shows him walking in the area of Oakley Road and Belden Lane.

    Oakley Mayor Randy Pope also appeared at Thursday’s press conference along with Gabe’s parents to announce the $10,000 reward.

    “On the behalf of the Oakley City Council and all the residents of the city of Oakley, we want your daughter home,” said Pope. “Hopefully, someone who wasn’t otherwise inclined to come forward will be enticed to come forward to claim the reward and we can bring Alexis home.”

    Gabe’s father read from a prepared statement while he and her mother held back tears.

    “Just like everyone else, we’ve had our challenges in life. But this is by far the most unexpected and most difficult thing we’ve had to face. Which is the reason why it has taken so long for my wife and I to speak publicly about this,” said father Gwyn Gabe. “It’s been three, long, excruciating months since Alexis’s disappearance. Since the day our daughter went missing, we have questioned our faith, have been completely overwhelmed and filled with doubt and despair. But with the love and support from those around us, we continue to find renewed strength and hope every day.”

    He added, “We are pleading to whomever has information regarding Alexis’s disappearance to please come forward. Please give Alexis the chance to be the person she is meant to be in this world. Tell us where our daughter is. Help us bring her back home. We need our daughter back.”

    Gabe is described as 5 feet 7 inches tall, 170 pounds, and last known to be wearing a white tank top, a silver and black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and green and white shoes.

    The city has set up a dedicated tip line for any information about Gabe’s disappearance. Anyone with information was asked to call 925-625-7009 or send an email to alexistips@ci.oakley.ca.us

    Missing 24-Year-Old Oakley Woman's Phone Case Found in Antioch, Considered 'Key Piece of Evidence'

    Alexis Gabe was first reported missing on January 25 by her family. The ensuing months have led to search efforts and an active investigation into the 24-year-old’s disappearance — with the recent recovery of her uniquely designed phone case becoming a "key piece of evidence," according to police.

    On Friday, it was announced that what appears to be Gabe's cell phone case, which features an image of Tupac Shakur on it, was discovered by investigators in Antioch. It's now believed that the suspect who was filmed walking away from Gabe's vehicle on Trenton Street in Oakley on January 26th—a day after her family reported her missing—likely discarded the phone.

    According to KTVU, the unmistakable cell phone case has been sent to a crime lab for further analysis and evidence collection and is considered a "key piece of evidence." Gabe was last seen at her ex-boyfriend's Antioch home in January, police officials say.

    This past Thursday, family members had confirmed that investigators served a search warrant at the ex-boyfriend's home on Benttree Way in Antioch where she was last seen and told where she was going before never returning; the City of Oakley also posted on social media about an additional search warrant that was issued in regards to her disappearance; Antioch police are looking to see if foul play occurred at the house of her ex-boyfriend.

    Gabe's family previously found the twentysomething's car abandoned on a dead-end street in Oakley back in January, and the keys were reportedly in the ignition. Per Gabe's family, Alexis had no reason to be down that street or a previous history using that street.

    During a Thursday update on the case, Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard made it clear that the missings person's case remains open and that the department is aware of the "recently recovered deceased bodies" in the region

    "We are aware of numerous reports of recently recovered deceased bodies around the Bay Area and beyond," Beard said during the update. "The community can be assured that the Oakley and Antioch Police Departments are actively looking into all reports and cases."

    Oakley police are requesting anyone that recognizes the male captured in the video walking down Trenton Street and discarding her phone to call the Alexis Gabe tip line at (925) 625-7009 or email Alexistips@ci.oakley.ca.us. A $10K reward will be issued to anyone with information leading to Alexis Gabe’s whereabouts.

    Her poor parents.

    Parents of missing California woman believe she is still alive as new developments unfold

    OAKLEY, Calif. -- It's been more than three months since 24-year-old Alexis Gabe of Oakley, California, was first reported missing in late January. But new developments in the case is giving Gabe's parents hope their missing daughter is still alive.

    "We definitely know there's someone that knows something," Gabe's parents, Rowena and Gwyn Gabe, told our sister station KGO-TV. "Even if it's just one person, we ask that you come forward and give us the information so that we can find our daughter...help us, help us please."

    A cell phone case belonging to Gabe was recovered, investigators said.

    "There's a lot of things unfolding right now with the case," said Gwyn. "Unfortunately, there's things we can't talk about yet."

    The missing 24-year-old was last seen in late January at her ex-boyfriend's house in Antioch along Benttree Way.

    "I can tell you this, where the phone case was found... it was very very close to where the Benttree Way house is," Gwyn Gabe said.

    Last Thursday, Oakley police served a search warrant at Gabe's ex-boyfriends house. Investigators last searched the home in February.

    The Gabe's say investigators check in with them around three times a week. According to the family, the latest updates are giving them hope Alexis is still alive.

    "Yes we are hoping, a feeling as a mom you know," Rowena Gabe said. "It's mixed emotions...they're not telling people they're looking for a body."

    Gabe's parents say Alexis's two nieces found her car in Oakley the day after she was first reported missing with the keys still in the ignition- not far from the ex-boyfriend's house.

    Last month, Oakley PD released surveillance footage of a man walking down the street in a hooded sweatshirt the night Gabe went missing. The man, now deemed a person of interest, was walking down the street not far from where Gabe's car was recovered.

    "Have you heard any leads from investigators on who this man is?" asked Stephanie Sierra, a reporter for KGO-TV.

    "Yes. Unfortunately now we can't say... he's just a person of interest right now," Gwyn Gabe said.

    Alexis's parents say the support from the community has been overwhelming, but added recent reports of bodies recovered across the Bay Area is making it harder to keep that hope alive.

    "It's scary, very scary... hearing reports of all these bodies," said Gabe. "We asked them to check it out... and are just relieved it's not her."

    "If Alexis could hear you right now, what would you tell her?" Sierra asked.

    "We miss you so much, we're not going to give up, we're not going to stop... we're going to keep searching... we will find you," the Gabe's said.

    The city of Oakley has created a $10,000 reward fund for anyone who has information on this case. You can send tips to 925-625-7009.

    Alexis Gabe, missing Oakley woman, allegedly murdered by ex-boyfriend

    The ex-boyfriend of an Oakley woman who has been missing for six months was killed by law enforcement officials in Washington state as they attempted to arrest him for her alleged murder, police said on Thursday.

    This was the first time that law enforcement revealed that Alexis Gabe, who vanished in January, had been killed.

    Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard said 27-year-old Marshall Curtis Jones – who used to date the 24-year-old Gabe – was shot on Wednesday by members of the Pacific Northwest Violent Offenders Task Force as they tried to arrest him and he charged at them with a knife.

    Jones was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The couple had broken up in November 2021.

    But Gabe's father, Gwyn Gabe, said at a news conference that the two had dated for three years and Jones had been the love of his daughter's life.

    "He became part of our family," Gwyn Gabe said emotionally. "We had no idea he was capable of doing something like this to her."

    Oakley and Antioch police officers had issued an arrest warrant earlier that day for Jones, who was in Kent, Wash., for the murder of Gabe, who has been missing since Jan. 26.

    The East Bay departments had asked the Pacific Northwest team, comprised of the Seattle Police Department, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and the United States Marshals Service, to serve the warrant.

    While the investigation had almost solely focused on him, Thursday's announcement was the first time that police named Jones as the formal suspect who allegedly killed her at his home in Antioch.

    He hadn't been cooperative with police when Gabe went missing, and had moved out of California days after Gabe went missing to Washington, where he has some family and friends.

    Jones came back to California for a short period last month, police said.

    "He has refused to speak with us several times," Beard said. "This has done nothing but prolong our investigation."

    Beard said Jones is the only homicide suspect in this case, but police believe he likely had help along the way.

    Jones owned a registered weapon but had no known criminal history, police said.

    The Contra Costa County District Attorney also announced formal murder charges against Jones, despite the fact that he is dead.

    Thursday was also the first time that police have stated that Gabe, a former nursing student, was dead.

    Police believe she was killed at Jones' home in Antioch on the day she went missing.

    Her body has not been found. Beard promised to keep looking for it. He suspects it is still in California.

    Beard said there is ample evidence to connect Jones to the homicide: Namely, Gabe's cell phone found near Jones' house had his DNA on the inside of the empty case.

    Beard also said there was plenty of other "digital evidence," such as phone calls and surveillance images to connect the now-dead Jones to Gabe's death.

    He said there is a trail of photos showing Jones leaving Gabe's home in Oakley on the night she went missing to his home in Antioch.

    In addition, Antioch police had been tapping Jones' cell phone since late April, which also provided them clues, law enforcement said.

    A motive has not been provided.

    "We're still looking into that," Beard said.

    Gwyn Gabe said that his family did not want Jones dead.

    "We wanted him arrested to pay for his sins," Gwyn Gabe said. "We wanted to meet with him face to face. We wanted to look him in the eye and ask him why? Where is Alexis? I know the police are saying that our daughter is gone, but our daughter will remain alive in our minds and in our hearts. We will continue to search for her until we find her."

    Police also lamented the fact that Jones was killed.

    Jones' death "is not what we had hoped for," Beard said, adding that an investigation into what happened and where Gabe's body might be are now hampered.

    But Beard reiterated that there is still a $100,000 reward available for information leading to Gabe's body.

    "We do hope somebody who has knowledge of Alexis's whereabouts will now feel more empowered to come forward without having to feel a negative response from Marshall Jones," Beard said.

    Those with information as to the whereabouts of Alexis Gabe are asked to call 925-625-7009 or Alexistips@ci.oakley.ca.us.
