On Nov. 3, 2022, the partial remains of missing California woman Alexis Gabe were found in Plymouth, California. Police believe the 24-year-old was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Marshall Curtis Jones.

According to PEOPLE, Jones was killed in a confrontation with police in June after fleeing to Washington state following Gabe's slaying.

Gabe went missing on Jan. 26, 2022. Earlier that day, she told her family she was going to visit her ex-boyfriend in Antioch, the town directly to the west of Oakley. She was seen with him around 9 p.m., according to reports.

Gabe’s unlocked car was found the next day on a street in Oakley. The keys were still in the vehicle, according to the San Francisco Mercury. Her phone has been off since her disappearance, rendering authorities unable to track her movements after the last time she was seen.

In the days after she vanished, police reportedly spoke with Jones and went on to execute a search warrant at a home believed to be his. A vacuum cleaner was removed from the home during the search.

Gabe's family and friends immediately began a large search for her, scouring the area on foot and hanging dozens of missing person posters around town. They organized a Facebook page and a GoFundMe.

A little over three months after the woman disappeared, police released a new surveillance video with a person of interest walking away from the area where Gabe’s car was abandoned overnight between January 26 and 27.

The man appears to be wearing a jacket and beanie, and his face is covered with a white N95 mask.

A detective told CBS News in San Francisco that authorities were able to track the man on neighborhood surveillance cameras as he walked through Oakley and back towards Antioch.

In January 2022, police immediately classified Gabe’s disappearance as suspicious and believed the young woman was the victim of foul play.

In July, authorities released handwritten driving directions believed to have been authored by Jones, detailing left and right turns and approximate drive times.

PEOPLE reported that authorities did not clarify if the directions did in fact indicate where Gabe's remains were recovered, but they did note her bones were located in an area identified early on where "Jones traveled to in the hours and days after Alexis was reported as missing."
