What happened to Alexis Sharkey?

Newlywed Alexis Sharkey, 26, went missing in Texas after she reportedly had an argument with an as yet unidentified person, her mother Stacey Robinault said.

She said her friends had last heard from her at 6pm on November 27, before calls to her phone went straight to voicemail. 

She told reporters: "[Thanksgiving] was a busy day on her end and our end and so it was just one of those passing, type of 'Love you' things.

"Then Friday … honestly, Friday got away. [It was a] busy day. We never talked, and then she went missing Friday night and I have not seen her or heard from her since."

Houston Police said investigations into her death are ongoing and an autopsy has been ordered.

When did she go missing?

The influencer went missing on Black Friday, November 27.

It is understood that Alexis did not take her car before going missing.

An initial Facebook post about Alexis' disappearance had been shared thousands of times on the social media platform.

In a Facebook post on November 29, her mother announced that Alexis's body had been found.

She wrote: "It's with deeply broken hearts that Mike and I want to let you all know that Lexi's body has been found.

"We cannot begin to thank you all for your love and the kind words you've extended to our family!"

Where was her body found?

Alexis was tragically found naked on the side of a road.

She was found by a Houston public works employee after they spotted a pair of feet sticking out from under some bushes.

The influencer – who had 21,000 followers on Instagram – had no visible injuries on her remains, and is believed to have remained in the spot she was found overnight.

Alexis' husband Tom – who she married last December before moving to Houston in January – called "her the most amazing woman" in a tribute on social media following the discovery.

Sharing pictures of Alexis in her wedding dress, Tom wrote: "Never seen or felt such beauty! You are my world!

"You made life so incredible! Made sense of my existence! My purpose! And showed me how to truly love!"
