Breaking news just in.
The body, believed to be that of Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old blogger who recently went missing, has been found.
Authorities say that they discovered what they believe to be the remains of Petito during a vast search across Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, according to TMZ.
A representative for the FBI has said that while forensic tests have not yet been completed, the body discovered is consistent with Gabby’s.
FBI Supervisory Special Agent Charles Jones said:
Gabby was initially reported missing on September 11. Up until Friday, Laundrie and his family reportedly refused to speak with investigators until he too was reported as a missing person.
At the time of writing, police are also still searching a vast preserve in the search for Gabby Petito’s fiance, Brian Laundrie, after news emerged yesterday that Laundrie had been reported missing.
ABC reported that cops are searching a vast Florida preserve after the family of Brian Laundrie revealed that his whereabouts was unknown.
North Port Police said Saturday morning that they are now currently searching for ‘the vast Carlton Reserve,’ a 24,565-acre preserve north of his home in North Port, for Laundrie.
Friday is the first time they have spoken with investigators in detail. It is important to note that while Brian is a person of interest in Gabby’s disappearance, he is not wanted for a crime. We are not currently working a crime investigation. We are now working a multiple missing person investigations.
A final text message was sent from Petito’s phone to her mother which simply said there was no phone signal in Yosemite, however her mother does not believe the message actually came from Gabby.
