Gabby Petito: Watch FBI press conference in full

·1-min read

The body of missing “van life” blogger Gabby Petito has been found in the Wyoming campsite area where officials were searching for her, the FBI said Sunday at a news conference.

“Earlier today, human remains were discovered consistent with Gabby Petito,” said Charles Jones, supervisory senior agent in Wyoming for FBI Denver. “Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100 percent but her family has been notified.

“The cause of death has not been determined at this time.”

The 22-year-old was reported missing by her family on 11 September after her fiance Brian Laundrie returned to Florida from the couple’s cross-country road trip without her.

A search had been underway for Ms Petito in the area she was last known to have visited, in Teton County, Wyoming, where police today announced they had found a body.

Two other travellers have been reported missing in the area since the start of summer, with extensive searches failing to locate any of the missing people.

Mr Laundrie has since been reported missing by his own family.
