An Amador County resident has discovered the remains of Alexis Gabe, the Oakley woman who disappeared in January and was determined to be the victim of foul play.
The resident, who police have not identified, reported the finding to the Amador County Sheriff’s Office on the afternoon of Thursday, Nov. 3. Amador County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the area and recovered the remains in an area just off Jackson Road in Plymouth, according to a news release from the Oakley Police Department.
Oakley and Antioch police officers responded to the area Friday morning to assist with the investigation. The area where Gabe’s remains were found has been searched further and no other remains have been found. Due to the nature of the condition of Alexis’ remains and the lack of her entire body, investigators said they believe the rest of her remains are scattered in various areas.
The remains were confirmed to be human and a forensic odontologist determined they were Gabe’s by examining his teeth. Jackson Road was identified early in the investigation as an area where Gabe’s ex-boyfriend, Marshall Curtis Jones, traveled in the hours and days after Gabe’s disappearance, according to the news release.
“[Antioch and Oakley police] found his remains today,” Gabe’s father, Gwyn, wrote in a Nov. 4 Facebook post.
Gabe’s family has been notified and is asking for respect and privacy during this time of mourning, police said.
A press conference will be held early next week, at which time more details will be released.
Gwyn said in a social media post that a celebration of life is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2023. That date was chosen, Gwyn said, because “it’s two days after the one-year anniversary of his disappearance”.
