    Missing woman disappears after road trip with boyfriend as mom reveals message to authorities | Fox News

    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, told Fox News 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.

    Missing woman goes missing after road trip with boyfriend as mother reveals message to authorities


    Gabby Petito, 22, took a trip with her boyfriend in a converted campervan in early July to visit the national parks.

    The couple stopped in Grand Teton National Park on August 25, Petito’s last known location, ahead of a planned trip to Yellowstone.

    Petito’s mother stated that the last verbal conversation she had with her daughter was on August 25.

    Her mother then received a text from her on the 27th and 30th. Although, her mother stated she cannot be completely sure if it was her daughter texting or not since they didn’t actually talk to each other.

    The couple was traveling in a white 2012 Ford van converted into an RV.

    “I can’t say much, but she’s not with the van anymore,” Schmidt told Fox News of her daughter. “I don’t want to say anything more, but for the people who are looking for her, I want them to look for her now, and not this van anymore.”


    The couple launched a YouTube channel to feature their road trip called “Nomadic Statik”.

    Brian Laundrie, Gabby’s boyfriend, could not be reached immediately for comment on Sunday.

    Suffolk County Police Fifth Squad detectives are investigating the disappearance of a Blue Point woman who went missing while traveling.

    Petito was reported missing to the Suffolk County Police Department by her family on September 11 at approximately 6:55 p.m. According to family, they were last in contact with her during the last week of August. Prior to the last communication, Petito is believed to have been in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

    As to whose van it is, Gabby says it's "our van," so I repeat - that was her van, at least in part, her only means of transportation (and she details how she fixed it up on her youtube). Then he takes off in it, leaving her...somewhere.

    Not cool, it's her van too. He had no absolute right to simply remove it from where she could use it (presumably, in the middle of Grand Teton Park...)

    And from what I can tell, that 2012 Ford Transit did not have GPS unless installed after-market...

    Police Searching For 22-Year-Old Missing Long Island Woman

    9/12/21

    BLUE POINT, NY — A 22-year-old Blue Point woman who was on a road trip out -of-state was reported missing by her family on Saturday, Suffolk police said.

    Gabrielle Petito, 22, was traveling in a white 2012 Ford Transit van, which had the Florida license plate QFTG03, "with a companion when she stopped communicating with friends and family," Suffolk police said.

    Petito's family told detectives that they were in contact with her during the last week of August, police said, adding that before the last communication, Petito "is believed to have been in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming."
    [..]

    Schmidt told Fox that she could not "say much, but she's no longer with the van. I don't want to say anything more than that, but for people looking for her, I want them to look for her now, not look for that van anymore."

    The van Petito was traveling in has since been recovered, police said.

    In one Instagram post, her boyfriend said: "Downsizing our life to fit into this itty bitty van was the best decision we've ever made.

    "With the limited space we wanted to take advantage of every inch, while also keeping everything minimalist."

    On 10 July, Gabby said: "After going on our first road trip across the country in my tiny car, we felt like there was just so much we missed.

    "Turning this Ford Transit essentially into a camper was such an adventure in itself, but I couldn't love the way it turned out more!"

    She added: "All the places it's brought us so far have been amazing! As soon as we got to the Great Sand Dunes I didn't want to leave, there was so much to hike!"

    The couple have shared pictures from Colorado Springs, Zion National Park, the Arches National Park, Mystic Hot Springs, Great Sand Dunes National Park, and Bryce Canyon National Park.

    Her last Instagram, posted on August 25, shows her visiting the Monarch Wall in Ogden, Utah with the caption 'Happy Halloween'. The pair were heading for Yellowstone National Park but Petito never made it.

    JP, her father, told Newsday Sunday that Gabrielle's disappearance felt like "drowning with your hands tied behind you."

    "You can't describe it. There's nothing you can do. You can't control anything," he said.

    Petito was traveling across the country in a white 2012 Ford Transit van with a Florida license plate, which police said since has been recovered. It was unclear where her vehicle was recovered.

    Gabrielle Petito was on a FaceTime call with her mother on Aug. 23 or 24, Schmidt said Sunday. She said she received texts sent from her daughter's phone until Aug. 30, but wasn't sure whether her daughter sent them.

    Long Island woman Gabby Petito missing after cross-country trip with boyfriend (nypost.com)

    JP (Gabby's father) moved from Long Island to Vero Beach, Florida, in June in part to be closer to his daughter, who had moved to the city of North Port in western Florida with her boyfriend about two years ago.

    On June 17, Petito arrived in New York to attend her brother’s high school graduation and then left on her cross-country adventure, Schmidt said.

    Last month, the couple arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, but left amid heavy wildfire smoke, according to Fox News.

    Petito was expected to visit a family friend in Portland, Oregon, around Halloween, Newsday said.

    The last time that Petito’s mother saw her daughter in person was when she arrived in New York to attend her brother’s high school graduation.

    Gabby Petito: Girlfriend of Brian Laundrie goes missing on camping trip


    [Her mom] would not confirm reports that the two were engaged — although Petito posted on Instagram last year “Brian asked me to marry him and I said yes”.

    —-Jaye Foster, an Alabaman who is traveling the U.S. in his own customized Volkswagen bus, met Gabby and Laundrie near Moab, Utah, on Aug. 10. The three of them chatted for about 40 minutes, discussing the modifications they had made to their vans.

    “They were holding hands, they were ecstatic about their rebuild,” Foster told The Daily Beast from a rest stop in California. “That’s what I find so weird about the whole situation, is that they were both really cool. There didn’t seem to be anything wrong whatsoever.”

    “They were happy to show off their van, happy to show off their travel map, she was so proud of the sink she had put in,” said Foster. “She was such a cool person. He was too. That’s what’s freaking me out. They seemed totally fine.
