Breaking news 2x1


Authorities in Grand Teton National Park, where Gabby Petito is believed to have gone missing, found a body but have yet to disclose the identity or gender, according to Brian Entin of News Nation.

The FBI, alongside local law enforcement, has been searching for the 22-year-old woman, who was reported missing on September 11. Her mother, Nichole Schmidt, said she last saw Petito via Facetime on August 24.

Schmidt said on August 30 she got a text that said Petito lost service in Yosemite, but she does not believe it was her daughter who sent it. The family said they haven’t heard from her since.

Petito was on a cross-country road trip with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie when she disappeared. Laundrie returned to his family home in Florida on September 1 and police said he refused to speak with investigators. Authorities named him a “person of interest” in Petito’s disappearance.

Police on Friday said his family reported that he’s been missing since Tuesday. As of Sunday, authorities in Florida are searching for him in the Carlton Reserve.

The FBI did not respond to Insider’s email request for comment at the time of publication.
