Police in Antioch and Oakley, California, continue their search for an Asian woman who was reported missing in late January and whose car was found with the key still in the ignition.

Alexis Gabe, 24, went missing “under suspicious circumstances” on Jan. 27, the Oakley Police Department (OPD) said.

“The OPD has taken all measures available to locate Alexis. We have found several images and videos that may assist us,” police said on Facebook on Monday. “We are examining those pieces of information on an ongoing basis.”

OPD served a search warrant for a residential address in Antioch, where Gabe’s ex-boyfriend, the last person who reportedly last saw her, is believed to reside.

Investigators removed a vacuum cleaner and several large bags from a home on Benttree Way, KRON reported.

The ex-boyfriend has been questioned, and police have taken his statement, according to the news station.

The Antioch Police Department and the Contra Costa County District’s Attorney’s office are also now helping with the case.

“The Oakley Police Department remains committed to locating Alexis, and we will continue to take investigative steps in the case,” the department said.

Gabe, described as an Asian woman standing at 5-foot-7 and weighing 170 pounds, was last seen wearing a white tank top, silver/black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and green/white shoes. 

Her car was discovered with the doors still open and the key still in the ignition, according to police.

“The more time that goes by, obviously, the more unsettled we are,” Gabe’s sister-in-law Morgan Strenfel told NBC Bay Area. “The way we found her car is extremely unusual.”

Strenfel said in a Facebook post shared on a group dedicated to looking for Gabe that search efforts came up empty on Sunday.

“We still do not have any leads or information about where Alexis is and her friends and family are sick with worry,” she wrote.

A GoFundMe on behalf of “friends and family to continue efforts to search for her whereabouts” has raised more than $8,000, as of this writing.

Police have urged anyone to “please report any credible sightings of Gabe, or any information that will lead to her discovery by calling the Oakley Police Department at 925-625-8060.”
