    Except Brian nor his parents have offered any information publicly nor presumably to LE. All that we know so far about the flight home and back comes from the GP fam.

    He does seem a little obsessed with Fight Club and that doesn't seem to match the whole VanLife lifestyle. Living off the grid, living without material possessions. I think he is the type of guy to pull a Chris McCandless "Into the Wild" kind of thing. But maybe, Gabby was also into that kind of thing too deep down, which is perhaps why she hasn't been seen in three weeks. She could be on the Pacific Crest Trail, doing a Cheryl Strayed sort of thing.

    Actually it's only a 3 1/2 hour hike between the Jackson dam and Spread Creek dispersed camp sites. There is unaccounted for time between August 25th and August 29th which matches BL's story about hiking along the Snake River for 3 or 4 days. All these accounts make sense.

    i honestly believe there is no end in site for them. It’s just ever evolving. I also don’t buy any of this fleeing the country talk. How could he survive in another country alone at his age and with his means. I don’t have faith I could even accomplish that. Sounds scarier than living in jail.

    Not everyone is speculating accident, only a few.With having the police called days before one disappears looks closer to some kind of assault not accident

    There are photos and video of a white tent with orange trim that appeared to be the same tent in a YouTube video that Gabby posted on Aug. 19. There is also an image of a smiling couple next to a rock formation that appeared to be Petito, 22, and Laundrie, 23.

    The location of the profile was Colorado Springs, Colo., and the tag line read “traveling in our tiny van.” The account was created in July, and appeared to be last updated on the 29th of that month. The couple did visit Colorado Springs on July 8, according to a timeline of their known travels complied by The Post.

    Gabby and Brian V’ reviewed Utah’s Zion National Park on July 22, the last day they were known to be visiting the site.

    “So beautiful here, Zion is just beautiful yes, but the tent sites here are really nice!” the couple wrote.

    “Walk to the museum after dinner before it gets dark to refill on some cold fresh water and wait for the stars to come out!! So beautiful! And refreshing!! Great campsite! And clean bathrooms!”

    OH!

    Speculation: something happened to Gabby at Spreader Creek. He fled on foot (hitchhiking) up to Colter Bay where he would have changed his mind and decided to return to Spreader Creek. He caught a TikTok ride heading south to go back to get the van, but realized that Jackson was the wrong place and jumped ship at Jackson Lake Dam, which would have been a perfect place to get back on to catch 191 to 26 and back to Spread Creek.

    This would be why they are doing a ground search i.e looking for a body at Spread Creek.

    OR: like another poster suggested, bad things could have happened in Yosemite and he headed south.

    I'm looking at their Spotify account and the last activity I see says it was "18 days ago".

    This is where I'm kind of stuck. What's the plan? You can't run and hide forever with just a backpack (that has a waist strap!).

    I'm kinda of more inclined to believe that he's going back to GP to die "forever with her" kinda thing but my instinct says he doesn't have the cajones for that.

    Have I missed word of any reward offered for info on Gabby’s whereabouts? Or is this a situation where that would not be helpful? <modsnip>

    Jackson is south of Colter Bay Village, Jackson Lake Dam, and Jenny Lake. North is Yellowstone Park.

    I'm baffled for the need to empty the storage locker at all. The home wasn't being sold. They intended to return from their trip. It makes no sense to me. JMO

    MOO I think when everything started there wasn't really a plan. It was one quick (bad/panicked) decision after another and those have led to a very bad place and now there's no turning back the clock. I believe all three have now possibly committed crimes and things just continue to get worse. There is no end game left at this point. Possibly the parents' best case scenario is that their son is alive and they aren't in jail with him down the road. All MOO.

    Oh, I’m sure there’s a bit of “it just got personal” feeling at police headquarters when they found out he bolted.
