    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.

    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.

    As we just heard on the 911 call. However, that is not what LE stated when they pulled them over. It was that a report of her hitting him. They even stated if they had to arrest someone, it would be Gabby since she was the agressor

    How did the information from the 911 call (which obviously states he is the aggressor) not accurately get relayed to the LE

    The 911 caller clearly states that he chased her down and slapped her some more. Doesnt seem like he was suffering from being stuck in a small space with her. Sounds like he is aggressive and controlling to me. I do not believe for 1 second that he killed her in self defense. and in the very unlikely case that he did, I find it even less likely he'd run and hide.

    Sorry if this is old and been covered, but I downloaded the Bethune video to watch it frame, by frame, to look at the open door speculation. There are quite a few missing frames - the van is in the distance, and then a chunk of video is missing, and they are on top of it. Wonder if that was a glitch in the camera, or if it has been otherwise explained?

    As for the door, it's impossible to tell, because there is a black artifact that moves around, but often is over the van. Looks like there's water or tree sap on the Bethune windshield that's right in the camera's line of the sight.

    True
    True. Cuba is close to Florida and they have no extradition agreement.

    Since LE have the search warrant for the home and I'd imagine any and all electronic devices incl. gps for all vehicles -- I think it's safe to say they know much more than we do and whom they're looking at; and whom they're looking for.
    And although BL has not been named a suspect or charged; the results from the autopsy may be coming back, or other evidence from BL or the parent's phones/call logs, etc.?

    People are assuming they are stickers, but they're probably magnets, so they get moved around, maybe when they are accessing the ladder etc.

    How do you know they didn't do this? Clearly, LE takes him back into town for the motel room paid for by Safe Have (or whatever it is called there). He is getting a night paid for by that charity. Surely they have to document the DV and how do you know they didn't give him that paperwork as they were checking him in?

    I'm sure they didn't tell him to walk on a busy highway the 5-6 miles back into Moab...

    A few rain storms on the way back to FL could have ‘cleaned’ it up as well.

    Right - and then removed them apparently, as they were missing in the last video. That's odd, to say the least.

    One thing that did strike me about the body cam footage was the officer walking off, past the vehicle Gabby was in, then turning around to go back and ask BL if he was on any medications and whether he was always this hyper, which made me wonder if he was questioning his story.

    As far as the conversation being inappropriate or unprofessional, I thought that maybe they were attempting to be more relatable in an effort to get either GP or BL to open up about anything they weren't saying.
