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.

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

-Stop bringing in mental health

Grasping at straws here, and given nothing else I have tried to rehash what little we have. So with that I look at work history and experience. Publix is something BL is familiar with and has some understanding on. I doubt he is what he proclaims to be as a survivalist.
For one a survivalist would be able to manage and support one's self independently.

What I am surmising is that he knows the foods a publix dumps, and is sustaining himself this way through dumpster diving. It may not be publix but certainly an easy route in and easy out in a remote area. JMO

Edit for typos.. need coffee

Well at the end of the day all that matters.is Brian is caught and we find out why he did it!
My guess she told him she Wanted.to go home.to her mother and end their relationship.
To me this is the only thing he.would kill for!
I can't imagine it being anything g else!

But that's just my 2 cents !

For anyone who’s just joined recently, there is a side thread https://www.websleuths.com/forums/t...-topic-side-chat.594359/page-13#post-17200206 which is for us to go and chat about anything off topic, share music etc.
It’s been a great idea and somewhere to de-stress when any upsetting news etc had happened. Just thought I’d share as I notice a few new people had joined.

I was completely unaware of that thread! How was anyone supposed to know it was there?

BBM! I was asked this question yesterday so I brought it over from the last thread as I couldn’t reply today as the thread is now closed.
@Shellinaya It was mentioned on the thread a few threads back, I’m not sure which one. @Tiff23fr i wonder if the mods would be able to put the side thread on page one for any new people or anyone who missed it. Thank you
