Search for Gabby Petito

Hi all. Idk if anyones been following the news but please take a moment to read this and contact authorities if you have any information.

The article didnt say but Gabby and her fiance went on a cross country road trip. Only the fiance returned in her van. Neither he nor his parents will say a damned thing on advice of counsel. And now hes “missing” too.

Just want to bring some resolution to her family. Hopefully someone on these forums was there and maybe captured something in the background of their pictures or videos.

Thanks for reading

FBI agents searching in Grand Teton national park in Wyoming on Sunday discovered “human remains consistent with the description” of Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old woman who went missing during a cross-country “van life” trip with her fiance, Brian Laundrie.

Very unfortunate for the Family of Gabby but at least she's been found. A sad ending for such a young free spirit in Gabby. RIP

A sad ending indeed, the family can now at least have closure to that part of the story and can lay her to rest. Having the closure can be the most important part inn the families healing. Now IMHO they just have to find her "boyfriend" so he can be buried in a very dark prison cell somewhere. As far as I am concerned he admitted his guilt when he took off into the wilderness. I hope they can put him behind bars soon, that's more closure the family needs. If it was one of my a5 daughters, I'd be happy he was in the wilderness, I'm very comfortable in the woods.

If you haven't seen this video already, it's worth a look.

The creator analyzes in detail that RV'er video of them pulling up to the van and you can clearly see that someone inside the van is closing the door. There is also a pair of flip flops on the ground behind the recently closed door. ONE pair only and look like the ones HE was wearing during the police body cam video.

Pretty creepy when you think that the deceased body was found just over the hill from where the van is parked.

The ones who shot the original video were going to stop as the van also had Florida plates but didn't think anyone was there. They contacted the FBI and posted it on their site after realizing what they videoed. They have also spoken to Gabby's parents a few times.

Such a sad story..

I'm never sure why the media gets so concerned with one story, when there are sooo many other unfortunate individuals that go missing every year. I'm sorry for her and her family. For all the others, I do hope that closure can come as quickly as this network ratings driven story.

I agree with the media focus but a lot of missing person cases leave no trace so nowhere to start.
In Gabby's case there is a lot to latch onto so the human interest is very high.

The topic of this thread was help in finding Gabby Petito. She has been found and any further actions are mere speculation.
