Alexis’s body 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.

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

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

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!”

In a Facebook post on Sunday, her mother announced that Alexis’ 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!”

Speaking before her daughter’s body was found, she told Eyewitness News from her home in north-west Pennsylvania about Alexis’ disappearance.

She said her friends had last heard from her at 6pm, 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.”

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

The post read: “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!!”
