Update: $60K Reward Offered for Missing Nursing School Graduate, Car Found Abandoned

The reward for information that leads to a missing California woman has grown to $60,000, the Times-Herald reports.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 24-year-old Alexis Gabe was last seen on January 26. On the day of her disappearance, Gabe reportedly went to her ex-boyfriend’s home in Antioch. Family members said her custom-made cellphone case was later found nearby.

In February, police conducted a search at the ex-boyfriend’s home, followed by another search on Thursday. No arrests have been made and he’s not been named a suspect at this time.

Gabe’s car keys were later found in the ignition of her blue Infiniti the following day; the car was abandoned off of Trenton Street and Carrington Drive in Oakley.

Oakley police announced a $10,000 reward in April, but that amount grew, thanks to an anonymous donor who contributed $50,000 to the reward fund.

“The Oakley Police Department and partner agencies are relentlessly working on this case and investigating the circumstances surrounding her disappearance,” Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard said on Monday. “Our hope is that the reward funds will bring us closer to finding Alexis and bringing resolution to the Gabe family.”

A security footage screenshot from April 28 showed an unknown man walking in Antioch, close to the area where Gabe’s cellphone case was found. Investigators believe that the man is the one who tossed out Gabe’s cellphone case.

Oakley Police Detective Tyler Horn is urging anyone with information on the case to contact police immediately, Mercury News reports.

“We continue to comb through all the tips received and are working on this case around the clock,” Horn said. “We ask that anyone with information please contact us.”

Anyone with information should call 925-625-7009 or send an email to
