The skeletal remains of Shannon Gilbert were discovered in a marsh near Oak Beach on December 13, 2011.

Shannan worked as an escort, advertising on Craigslist, and visited a client at his Oak Beach home on May 1, 2010. Gilbert's driver remained in the area while she met with the client. At some point during the meeting, Gilbert reportedly began acting irrational, prompting her client to contact the driver and have Gilbert leave his home.

After refusing to leave the location at the request of her client, Gilbert eventually fled on foot into the Oak Beach community. She knocked on several doors before disappearing.

The search for Gilbert led to the discovery of Melissa Barthelemy's remains near Gilgo Beach, on December 11, 2010.
