    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.

    ADMIN NOTE:

    Brian Laundrie has been officially named by LE to be a POI in this case which is still a missing persons case at this time. He may be sleuthed.

    The Awareness Foundation is approved for discussion.

    The "Find Gabby" FB page is not approved at this time as there is still nothing on the page to indicate it is family run and nothing directly from the family indicating that they are involved in the Administration of the page.

    To speculate that the victim was involved in drugs or somehow responsible for her own disappearance is off limits as Not Victim Friendly. Negative speculation on a victim is not allowed. Such posts will be removed.

    Warning points and possible Time Outs will be issued for members who violate Websleuths Victim Friendly rule.

    Please read The Rules and post accordingly.

    Mod Note:

    Suggestions of a publicity stunt while someone is missing is not victim friendly. Until LE suggests otherwise, Gabby is missing and WS will treat the missing persons case with the care and compassion a missing person deserves. Posts suggesting this is a stunt or hoax have been removed.

    To avoid having your post removed and risk losing posting privileges:

    - remember that Gabby, her family and her friends are considered VICTIMS, and protected by Websleuths’ victim-friendly policy
    - don’t post anything as fact without an MSM link.
    - don’t use derogatory names for ANYone.
    - don’t discuss comments from ANYone on any social media.
    - don’t bicker.

    This is not the complete list of rules, but merely the ones that have been violated here this evening. Do yourself and Websleuths a favor and read over THE RULES HERE to help keep this thread opened.

    THANKS for your efforts to do that going forward.

    Mod Note:

    With LE's statement that the cases are not connected, future posts connecting the cases will be removed as off topic.

    It has been brought to our attention that somebody copied our earlier press release, altered the document, and then reposted it. Disregard the press release that is dated "September 17, 2021; 1700 Mountain Time". This is false information. There is no press conference scheduled for Saturday the 18th of September. Whoever created the false post also misspelled the names in the document.
    Our earlier press release is still the current and up to date standing involving the two cases. They are not related.

    A few bullets:
    -Speculation of a hoax is still off limits
    -WS by TOS is Law Enforcement friendly (it is OK to feel frustrated, but please don’t straight up bash LE)

    I read that as he communicated to the public on behalf of the family. Not that he initially reported him missing to the police.

    Absolutely he has help. How does he have any resources at all to take off?

    idk if we can fully believe the tiktok video but it might be possible (with a lot of hard work) to see if BL/GP or the other couple were ever in Jackson, WY, as Jackson has a ton of livestreams with fixed cameras in places like the main intersection, town square, as well as several tourist-y locations. They're on youtube. I don't know how well they archive all the footage though.
    I'm still trying to make sense of the timeline, personally. She is last said to be in Grand Teton because her family was able to call her. But then she texted them (if it really was her, which imo is up in the air) that they were all the way in Yosemite not too long after (a few days). I can hardly believe that the trip from WY to CA would've been so quick and they wouldn't have made any stops given how many attractions there are in the region. Maybe I just can't wrap my mind around them going to CA because of how much harder that makes the search.

    That may be true. I was reading that the attorney made the initial call to police, but you may be right.

    Ring doorbells will tell them which way and who may have picked him up. It's so hard to slip through the cracks today in suburbia. moo

    Maybe he's gone back to "find" Gabby.
    This is all too sad. :(
    Will check in tomorrow.
    These cases get stranger every day.

    She doesn't have to be lying to be wrong about it being BL and not some other hiker. I believe her story went exactly like she said it, but it could still be a mistaken identity.

    Not that difficult. I have multiple friends traveling overseas at present. Most have done so with relative ease.

    I think he has totally fled the region because he thought nothing of driving across the country in a stolen van and the van life trip itself was all over the country. He seems to like to travel very far and wide. He could be anywhere. I think it really depends on who or what is funding him. He has to have money, credit cards, something. If not, he can't go far.

    WOW!

    " She met Mr. Laundrie at Bayport-Blue Point High School on Long Island, Mr. Schmidt said. They began dating after graduation and moved two years ago to Florida, he said." Parents of ‘Person of Interest’ in Van Mystery Say They Haven’t Seen Him in Days

    That makes any move to NY even more risky. He's got an entire community that would recognize him even without the press. I cannot see him making this move when let's be honest, he has been extremely calculating throughout this entire ordeal.
