The body found in a national park is said to be that of Gabby Petito


A body found in a Wyoming national park where authorities were looking for a missing 22-year-old New York woman is believed to be that of Gabby Petito, from Long Island, federal authorities said.

“Earlier today, human remains were found as described by Gabrielle ‘Gabby’ Petito,” FBI surveillance agent Charles Jones said at an early evening press conference on Sunday (September 19th). . “The cause of death has not been determined at this time.”

The body was found near Grand Teton National Park, Teton County Coroner Brent Blue said.

“In order to protect our investigative process and to increase the likelihood of a successful prosecution should it become necessary, we have no additional comments,” Jones said.

Petito went missing late last month on a van trip across the country with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, also from the hamlet of Blue Point in County Suffolk.

Laundrie returned home to Sarasota County in the city of Northport without her on Wednesday, September 1.

Petito was reported missing on Saturday September 11.

Laundrie’s parents told police on Friday September 17 that they had not seen him since the start of the week. A search is underway for him in a wooded reserve in Sarasota County.
