Locals in the area said they had seen the SUV but didn’t link it to Alexis.
One person, who admitted they felt bad for not calling the cops earlier, told ABC57: “My husband's the one that noticed it.
"He asked me Thursday night after coming from a game he said you know have you seen, did you see the BMW in the back, and I said no I didn’t.
“He was like oh, it’s just sitting there I don’t know who’s it is.”
They added: “I wish that we could have reported the truck a long time ago.”
