She was last seen on 12 August, and her fiancé reappeared alone on 1 September – at which point Gabby Petito’s parents promptly filed a missing persons report. Now a body has been found in Wyoming (USA), where Gabby (22) was found, reports “Fox News“.
After a week of intensive searches, this message came on Sunday. Teton County coroner Brent Blue visited the site in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Exactly ten minutes later, sniffer dogs looking for the missing 22-year-old were retrieved.
Police have yet to comment on whether the body is actually Gabby. An official announcement is yet to come.
Background: Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito (22) and her fiancé Brian Laundry (23) set out on a road trip across the United States in a converted Ford Transit on Long Island (US east coast) in July. But this trip is now part of a gruesome FBI crime.
Because the couple never arrived at their destination, the US state of Oregon on the west coast. Instead, Laundry appeared to be alone in Florida—no trace of Gabby. His parents were looking for him since then. And the laundry is silent.
After a while he too disappeared! Florida police said he was last seen by his family on Tuesday. In a statement from North Port Police on Friday evening: “We would like to clarify that Brian is a key witness for us in Gabby Missing Man. He is not wanted for a crime. For us this is a case of multiple missing people.” “
Laundry’s family had not cooperated with the investigating officers for several days, and they only contacted the authorities on Friday evening.
“While we can understand the public’s frustration, we are also disappointed,” investigators said. Repeatedly he and the missing Petito’s parents appealed to the friend and his family to speak.
Perhaps the authorities have now come a step ahead.
