Reward Offered, Person Of Interest Sought In Young California Woman’s Disappearance
Oakley police have footage of a man they say could know what happened to 24-year-old Alexis Gabe.
There have been few leads and even fewer clues in the case of Alexis Gabe, a 24-year-old Oakley woman who 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 her still-unnamed ex-boyfriend 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. The family also reached out to several psychics who swear the woman is alive. The efforts uncovered nothing new in the case.
Now, more than three months after the woman disappeared, police have 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, police immediately classified Gabe’s disappearance as suspicious and believe the young woman is the victim of foul play.
There is now a $10,000 reward for useful information regarding Gabe’s disappearance. Police have not named any specific persons of interest in the case.
Gabe is an Asian woman who is 5’7” tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a white tank top, a silver and black hooded sweatshirt, and green and white shoes. Anybody who sees Gabe or has any information about her disappearance or her whereabouts should call the Oakley Police Department at 925-625-8060.
