She was last seen on August 12, and her fiancé appeared alone on September 1 – at which point Gabi Pettito’s parents immediately filed a missing person report. Now a body has been found in Wyoming (USA) where exactly Gabby (22) was sought, according to reports “Fox News“.
After a week of extensive research, this message arrived on Sunday. Brent Bleu, the Teton County Coroner, came to the site in Bridger Teton National Forest. Just ten minutes later, the sniffer dogs that had been searching for the missing 22-year-old were pulled over.
Police have not yet commented on whether the body is indeed Gabi. An official announcement is still pending.
BACKGROUND: Gabrielle “Gabi” Pettito, 22, and her fiancé, Brian Laundry, 23, set out on a road trip across the United States in a Ford Transit on Long Island (East Coast of the United States) in July. But this trip is now part of a horrific crime for the FBI.
Because the couple never reached their destination, the US state of Oregon on the West Coast. Instead, Laundry showed up on her own in Florida – and there was no trace of Gabe. Her parents have been searching hard for her ever since. And Laundry is silent.
After a short time he also disappeared! Florida police said his family last saw him on Tuesday. And in a statement from North Port Police on Friday evening: “We want to make clear that Brian is an important witness to us in the missing Gabi. He is not wanted for a crime. For us, this is just a case with a number of missing.”
Laundry’s family did not cooperate with investigative authorities for several days either, and only contacted officers on Friday evening.
“We can understand the public’s frustration, as we are,” the investigators said. She and Pettit’s parents repeatedly pleaded with the friend and his family to speak up.
Officials may now have taken another step forward.
