    Missing woman disappears after road trip with boyfriend as mom reveals message to authorities

    Gabby Petito, 22, set out on a road trip with her boyfriend in a converted camper van in early July to tour National Parks, but she disappeared in late August and her family hasn't heard from her in more than two weeks. Now, her mother is pleading for help finding her daughter.

    Nicole Schmidt, Petito's mother, said that the last verbal conversation she had with her daughter was on Aug. 25.

    "I don't know if she left Grand Teton or not," Schmidt said. "I did receive a text from her on the 27th and the 30th, but I don't know if it was technically her or not, because it was just a text. I didn't verbally speak to her."

    [...]

    The couple stopped in Grand Teton National Park on Aug. 25, Petito's last known location, before a planned trip to Yellowstone. They were traveling in a 2012 Ford white van that was converted into a camper.

    [...]

    A spokesperson for the Jackson Police Department said that an "attempt to locate" call was recently filed for Petito. The Suffolk County Police Department is also investigating the case. Suffolk County PD declined to comment on Sunday.

    Petito is 5’5" and has blonde hair and blue eyes. She has a triangle tattoo with flowers on her left arm and a "Let it be" tattoo on her right arm.

    Anyone who has seen Gabby or has any information on the case should contact the Suffolk County Police Department at 1-800-220-8477.

    Mod Note:
    We went through several threads yesterday with comments on mental health, OCD, anxiety, etc. It is time to let that go.

    Future posts regarding mental health will be removed. The thread is simply moving too fast to bring in the various points of view and personal experiences in this area.

    Thanks everyone - You are Rock Stars and we so appreciate you!!

    If someone uses the wrong letter in initials please just report the post for correction. It makes it more challenging when we have 20 replies “who is XX”?

    Sorry to seem like I am nit picking but these little things can help clear clutter and enhance your experience navigating a fast thread such as this.

    I agree. Fear makes you do irrational things. Especially in a 23 y/o brain.

    I believe it was the Daily Mail which was why it was within the realm of speculation, no
    other outlets mentioned it. MOO

    I personally went to the progresso area about a month ago and walked in with no problem. Eagle pass is also open. Del Rio was closed Friday due to the thousands of Haitian immigrants currently camped out under the bridge.

    This is my last post on this because honestly I'm not even sure what the argument is about. I'm not looking at a fake account. It's HIS account. Linked from GP's. There are no extra underscores. The post about missing the succulents is under his stories. If people can't find it I'm not sure what to say

    It's just been folded away neatly in one photo and not in the other.

    Assuming the hitchhiking story is true, it's so crazy that he didn't just stick to that alibi and call the police when he got to the van and say Gabby was "missing". At least he would have had a shot at beating in court. But fleeing across the country with her van and then dragging his family into this mess? It just all seems so unnecessary.

    She told the police she was afraid, he was telling her he was going to leave her in the desert. So close to being saved...

    I'mm thinking there's a misunderstanding here? I was hoping you'd provide a link to a photo or a post. I don't know how to follow up on "Brian's IG account" and get the exact data point you're referring to.

    It seems like BL is trying to send everyone in the wrong direction so he can get away and stay in hiding. Just a theory. The parents have to know something too, everything about this case is being delayed and it all started from that text to her mum saying she had no service. BL must of sent that text.

    im not sure why he went home at all, i mean if you wanted to run why drive 2500 miles home or whatever it was

    grab your passport or ID and just jump the border before anyone even knows that anything is amiss

    that point has always stumped me throughout this entire thing

    I posted this a few threads ago. I was watching the raw video 1:47 time area, paused it and zoomed in on the left side, brightened it as high as I could and took a screenshot. It looks like it could be two people walking away, one on the left with a backpack.

    It's posted on this page. I circled the area on the screenshot.
