A CHILLING note left behind by the dead ex-boyfriend of a missing woman could help cops find her body.
Alexis Gabe, 27, was last seen in California on January 26 and officers suspect her disappearance was not by accident or choice.
Alexis' parents have now received copies of notes handwritten by her ex-boyfriend Marshall Curtis Jones.
Cops said Jones wrote down directions for where to dispose of Alexis' body in Pioneer – an area 60 miles east of Sacramento.
The directions in the notes were specific – detailing landmarks and left and right turns with specific time estimates which ended on a rural road.
The crumpled notes were found inside the garbage at a house belonging to Jones’ sister.

Gwyn Gabe, Alexis' father, told ABC7: "As soon as police saw that – they left and went straight to Pioneer."
Detectives said Marshall turned off his phone for several hours while driving to Pioneer, but they were able to pinpoint his location when the phone turned on.
Gwyn said: "His phone was there. It pinged around that area… we thought it was something to throw police off."
Jones was killed last month as officers were trying to arrest him.

He allegedly charged at cops with a knife inside his apartment.
Police said a friend of Jones came forward after he died to tell the cops how 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 and find his daughter's body – including draining more than eight million gallons of water in a pond.
"Unfortunately, they found nothing," he said.
"They're only focusing on Pioneer. They strongly believe she is there."
In May, investigators revealed that they found Alexis’ uniquely designed cell phone case – and the FBI confirmed Jones' DNA was discovered on it.
Alexis’ parents said they are not giving up hope on finding their daughter.
Gwyn said he's not sure Alexis is buried in Pioneer – and his wife believes she's still alive.
"Until we find a body, we're just going to keep believing that she's still alive," Gwyn said.
Her mom Rowena said she misses her daughter’s dancing.
She told NBC Bay Area: “Every time she’s at home, she sings and dance in front of me and makes fun of me and that’s what I miss.
"She’s kind and beautiful inside and out.”
