A CHILLING note left by a missing woman’s dead ex-boyfriend could help police find her body.
Alexis Gabe, 27, was last seen in California on January 26 and officials suspect her disappearance was not accidental or voluntary.
Alexi’s parents have now received copies of notes handwritten by her ex-boyfriend Marshall Curtis Jones.
Cops said Jones wrote down instructions for disposing of Alexis’ body in Pioneer, an area 60 miles east of Sacramento.
The directions in the notes were specific – they included detailed landmarks and left and right turns with specific time estimates, ending on a country road.
The crumpled notes were found in the trash of a house owned by Jones’ sister.
Gwyn Gabe, Alexis’ father, told ABC7, “As soon as the police saw this, they left and went straight to Pioneer.”
Detectives said Marshall turned off his phone for several hours while driving to Pioneer’s, but they were able to pinpoint his location when the phone was turned on.
Gwyn said: “His phone was there. It was pinging in that area…we thought it was something to deter the police.”
Jones was killed last month when officers tried to arrest him.
He is said to have attacked police officers in his apartment with a knife.
Police said a friend of Jones’s came forward after he died to tell officers he was “thinking about killing Alexis and wanted to know where the best place to hide a body would be”.
Gwyn said detectives and volunteers have now searched nearly 200 acres of land to try to find his daughter’s body – including dumping more than 8 million gallons of water in a pond.
“Unfortunately, they didn’t find anything,” he said.
“They only focus on Pioneer. They firmly believe that it is there.”
In May, investigators revealed they found Alexis’ uniquely designed phone case – and the FBI confirmed Jones’ DNA was found on it.
Alexis’ parents said they would not give up hope of finding their daughter.
Gwyn said he wasn’t sure if Alexis was buried at Pioneer – and his wife believes she is still alive.
“Until we find a body, we’ll just keep believing it’s alive,” Gwyn said.
Her mother, Rowena, said she misses her daughter’s dancing.
She told NBC Bay Area, “Every time she’s home, she sings and dances in front of me and makes fun of me, and I miss that.
“She’s nice and beautiful inside and out.”
