Missing influencer’s body found 3 miles from home day after Thanksgiving

An influencer's body was found naked three miles from her home after she went missing last Friday.

Alexis Sharkey, 26, from Houston, Texas, USA, was spotted at around 8.30am on Saturday morning by by city workers who spotted her from their car passing by, according to the Houston Police Department.

The body which had no visible wounds, was found on the side of the I-10 service road near a four-star hotel just three miles from her apartment, according to police and records.

Sharkey's 32,000 strong Instagram following saw her often share snaps with her husband Tom Sharkey, who she was having issues with, KHOU 11 reported.

Tanya Ricardo, one of Alexis’ best friends, claims: “Recently, she opened up to us about it and divorce was being filed.

“She was a very private person. She didn’t share a lot about what was going on at home.”

Alexis' mother, Stacy Robinault originally told local media that her daughter left the apartment she owned with her husband, on Friday night after an argument.

She did not take her car and nobody could get through to her, family said. It was not clear who she had been arguing with or what about.

Alexis’ husband called her mum to say she was missing, then more than 12 hours after police found Alexis’ body.

The distraught mother had turned to Facebook for help in tracking her down.

“Please share this post!!! My daughter, Alexis Sharkey, is missing!! No one has heard from her for over 24 hours and the police are involved. She has lived in Houston Texas since January and that was where she was last seen. Please help us find her and bring her home safely!! We are so very desperate!!! Please share!!” the mum wrote around 9:58pm on Saturday.

The Houston Police Department was unable to resolve the discrepancy.

A public information officer told The Post that dead bodies need to be positively identified by the Harris County medical examiner, and immediate identification requires the person to have their ID on them.

Local outlet KPRC 2 said Alexis was identified by a fingerprint.
