    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.

    "The FBI and NPPD were informed last night of Brian’s parents’ intentions and they met Chris and Roberta there this morning. After a brief search off a trail that Brian frequented some articles belonging to Brian were found. As of now law enforcement is conducting a more thorough investigation of that area.”

    Can someone please post evidence of the dry bag having a hole in it? I know it's been debated, but I haven't seen concrete proof.

    I’d think even if the dry bag had a hole in it, the notebook was fairly intact for them to determine that it was Brian’s

    He could have wanted to write down his thoughts on what happened before killing himself (if that's what happened and it wasn't accidental. It could have been either, or not his remains which is unlikely IMO).

  10. Was the parents presence today at the request of the FBI, or was it the parent's big idea?

    If it isn't BL then who else could it be??

    Are the found items 100% confirmed to belong to BL?

    Agreed. Maybe he used some sort of permanent ink, that still may not hold up well if being submerged under water for a month, but who knows - maybe it was floating in his backpack. He could have perhaps only been under 6" of water. Still so many unknowns!

    Comparing the loss GP’s parents are experiencing to what the Laundries might be experiencing now…gross. Those families are not the same.

    FBI: investigators found human remains — and a backpack and other items belonging to Brian Laundrie. FBI did not confirm the remains are Laundrie. Says they will be here for days.

    Maybe the notebook will give us the answers we need.

    It was their idea. They had opened up the reserve and the parents told them last night they were going to search where his car was found.

    I hope that notebook is readable and contains something that helps Gabby's family get closure on what happened to her. Otherwise, what a heartbreaking end for them not to get their questions answered.

    Someone asked why FBI Denver is the main agency when Gabby was found in Wyoming. It's because WY isn't all that populated and we don't have an FBI field office. The closest one is Denver even though it's 8 hours away. That's just how life is here, one big town with long roads.
