OAKLEY, Calif. (KRON) — Investigators continue to search for 24-year-old Alexis Gabe. This week they raided a house and also found the young woman’s cell phone case.
KRON4 spoke with their parents on Saturday afternoon about the updates and how they remain hopeful.
The family says that hope is all they can do: hope for the best. They say they get updates from the police two or three times a week, and that’s reassuring.
“We miss our daughter very much. We want to find her. We want her back,” her father said.
Gabe’s parents, Gwyn and Rowena Gabe, say they think about her every second of every day, and say they have a feeling she’s still out there.
“The feeling that she is still alive,” her mother said.
But they say that every time a body is found, they worry it could be hers.
Investigators found a key piece of evidence this week: the casing of his cell phone.
“Seeing the actual image of that, the image was very, very emotional,” Gwyn Gabe said.
Investigators suspect the man captured in this video walking away from Alexis’ vehicle on Trenton Street in Oakley discarded his cell phone case. In recent days they also served a search warrant at a home on Benttree Way in Antioch to continue looking for evidence.
The house is reportedly where she was last seen.
“We are happy that it is the second search. Looks like they’re onto something. If they went there a second time, it proves that something is going on, something is going on,” said Gwyn Gabe.
Alexis’s father pleads that if anyone knows anything, to come forward, any information can help.
