    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.

    ADMIN NOTE:

    Discussing info that is in MSM about the parents is allowed. Sleuthing out information related to them, just because it is publicly available is not allowed.

    If you don't understand the difference, private message a Mod or Admin and we will help clarify.

    Please acknowledge before proceeding

    Emotions and frustration are running rampant in the thread and taking it out on others is not permitted. If you need a break, take a break. Continuing to engage in this fashion is not moving the conversation forward.

    Of Note:
    -Move on from bickering
    -Let go of the domestic violence debates
    -Stop bringing in mental health


    Tip: When you feel most compelled to hit "post" after quickly whipping up that response, see it as a sign you need to step back and re-read what you have written before clicking that button!

    I just missed the coroner's statement regarding DV, but is it possible he was referencing the Moab incident and the attention it's received relative to the attention other DV incidents have received as opposed to relating it to the autopsy?

    This is based completely on opinion...I think he is a take someone else out before he takes himself out kind of guy. I do think he is alive, with help from family, and if LE closes in he will not think twice to kill someone else or take hostages. Again, JMO. They need to find him.

    Can we take a minute to discuss how hard it is to strangle someone to death? It's not like on TV. They pass out long before they die. So he would have to have continued to choke her for a couple of minutes after she stopped fighting. It's hard to call this kind of manual strangulation rage/crime of passion because a strangler does have to put so much effort into it.

    The crime scene photos still tell a little more of a story to me. On many of those rocks, it looks like blood. JMO
    I believe he strangled her, but I seriously wonder what took place for the "blood splatters" to be in many pictures. Of course, we get the watered down version because the safety of the case is at stake. But I definitely ponder a serious fight before the eventual strangulation. How awful, my heart is breaking.

    How is strangulation not premeditated? Premeditation only has to be a few seconds. It takes minutes to strangle someone.

    If there was blood splatter on the rocks, they would have collected the rocks into evidence IMO.

    Officer
    Where did he hit you?

    Gabby Petito
    Well, he grabbed my face, like, I guess. He didn’t hit me in the face, he didn’t like punch me in the face or anything.

    Officer
    Did he slap you in the face or what?

    Gabby Petito
    He like grabbed me like with his nail and I guess that’s why it looks, I definitely have a cut right here because I can feel it and when I touch it it burns.

    New body cam footage of Gabby Petito released

    I thought the blood splatters were all speculation. Nobody knows for sure what the police were marking with the spray paint in those photos.

    Would the person that picked BL up hitch hiking possibly have seen bruises or scratches on him? Has she ever said?

    No matter how much Bertolino tries to spin things, there is no way he can get around that Gabby was manually strangled to death and his client is on the run.

    Let him keep on releasing statements though as he does leak out things along with his spin.
