    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 are starting to lose focus that this thread is about Gabby and the current search for Brian.

    Mental Health: Only bring it into the discussion if it is a statement in media or LE reports. Do not expand beyond what has been provided to us regarding Gabby and/or Brian and mental Health.

    Domestic Violence: Many posters here have stories. In our own personal ways, we all have stories. The challenge we have in these threads is the separation of our personal stories and the focus of the thread.

    This thread is about Gabby's story.

    As mods, we have hearts, we care about each of you, and it is hard to delete a post on thread that may include your personal story. However, we have to remind ourselves this is about Gabby's story. Please keep her the focus of the thread.

    Mod Note:

    I really dis-like shutting down some parts of discussion, however it is my job to make judgement calls at times that are in the best interest of the threads. At this time I am making a judgement call that secret meanings of "Stan" is rumor/conspiracy talk and it is no longer permitted. Should LE offer something to support re-visiting it, the position will be re-considered.

    Thanks for understanding and wishing each of you the best today.
    Tiff

    According to police, the message read: "Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls."
    Schmidt told investigators that Stan is Petito's grandfather, but that she doesn't usually refer to him by his first name, the warrant, which was obtained by PEOPLE, states.

    This makes sense, except I thought their lawyer was there. Why would he be there if the visit was unannounced? Does he live there? ;)
    Also, would this be the lawyer who flew into Orlando from somewhere up north? Is he still in the area?

    Maybe media folks such as Brian Entin, who will report soon, can clear some of this up...

    @NCWatcher quote from previous thread snipped by me.
    "I also agree it's possible different dispatchers took the calls and didn't realize the witness accounts were different. Better procedures may be needed re: dispatch reporting."

    Audio clip of dispatcher to officers.

    "RP states a male hit a female. Domestic. He got into a white ford transit van. Has a black ladder on the back Florida plate....."

    3 minutes? what gets accomplished in three minutes? Maybe the FBI just walked in, said "we found your son" then just turned around walked out the door. I'm thinking three minutes is not that long.
