    I'd imagine they could now ?

    Does BL have his phone with him ?
    That's one way to find him.
    I agree that he might be hiding out at home.
    MOO.

    I keep reading references to these photos and videos of aerial footage, but have yet to see a link. Can you please provide? TIA

    I would have commented sooner but the servers seemed to be down. At least for me. Well most of us saw this coming even if we were hoping and praying this wouldn’t be the case. Heart broken. I’m so sorry this is the result. Praying for her family. God rest her soul and Rest In Peace Gabby.

    Now…..I’m MAD. Someone in LE. GET HIM. Throw Every resource they got. I want him as the most wanted man in US(aside actual threats of Terror). End this ridiculous farce of him on the run. He’s in his early 20s…..this isn’t Jason Bourne. Get him.

    So grateful for that couple who caught the dash cam.
    So much important info in that very moment.

    RIP Gabby. Your footprint on the world was lovely and will be remembered. xx

    Did she bury herself, too?

    This entire situation is tragic and was so preventable. I feel so horrible for both Gabby’s and Brian’s families.

    Yes, there are bears in the area - but no reports of any recent sightings (fishing season at the lakes - further away, it's bear congregation time - this is when they go to lakes, eat, mate, etc)

    At any rate, I was watching the KSL feed live when the helicopter saw the searchers pause (there were people on foot and on horseback). I knew it was near where the van was found, because the other Van Life couple posted the coordinates. The helicopter panned away as soon as they realized it was a body - but it was (from my brief look) relatively intact. I was certain it was a small female - still with some clothing visible.

    Over large regions, there are ornithologists saying we have a big decrease in the vulture/scavenger bird population - so they are not the clue that they might have been (plus all those birds do not go that close to a human car, IMO).

    Same with grizzlies - this whole area was pretty populated with dispersed campers and the area where Gabby was found was not the more densely wooded/scrubby area that most bears prefer.

    Gabby’s smile as she sits on the swing and the video of her cartwheeling down the beach is so full of life and innocence against the video of her crying in the van. I wish life were fair. Rest In Peace, Gabby.

    It’s about 200 yards. Measured it on Google earth.

    LE can not publicly announce a positive ID until all testing is done.

    He is still a free man ti
    He is still a free man, POI until evidence proves otherwise. Reporting has been that the parents only spoke about BL with LE, his “disappearance”. The dash cam video was released at the same time, it looks like that might have also helped narrow the search parameters. I’m highly suspect that finding his car, driving it back is nothing mote than a distraction. Per their past behavior, their only concern has been their son, he may have quit communicating with them and they fear he harmed himself or a delay in reporting him missing was to give him ample time to go wherever he is now.

    This is so sad. Both mothers have lost a child:

    Family travel vloggers share video they believe shows Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie's van around time of her disappearance

    Bethune said she spoke with Petito's mother, Nichole Schmidt, via FaceTime on Sunday. She said Schmidt thanked her for sharing the footage.

    "We had a very good cry together from one mom to another," Bethune said.

    But Brian, if he's still alive and IF no one is charged in the deaths of the other two women, might have a handy defense. Someone else killed all three of them. Of course, it could just as easily go the other way: Brian becomes the suspect in all three deaths. I haven't followed too much about the Moab ladies, so I may be completely off trail in my opinion here.

    Suicide based on???? So Brian lawyered up to deal with his grief? I don't see grief in his behavior, I see guilt.
