Body matching description of Gabby Petito found near Grand Teton National Park

#VanLife couple Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito left in July for what was supposed to be a four-month trip. However, Brian Laundrie came home to Florida early, on September 1st, without Gabby Petito. The story has captivated the nation— both because of the trip's extensive social media documentation and Laundrie's refusal to cooperate with the police.

"Human remains discovered in Teton County, Wyoming, on Sunday are "consistent with the description of" missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito, FBI officials said in a news conference.

"Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified of this discovery," Charles Jones, FBI Denver's supervisory senior resident agent in Wyoming, said."


The news comes after Youtuber Red, White, & Bethune posted an August 27th where Petito and Laundrie's van can be seen in a shot. After the observation was reported, the body was found nearby. No official statement has confirmed that the video footage informed the search.

Brian Laundrie remains missing; the police search for him continues.
