The FBI announced on Monday that a dead body found is believed to be that of missing blogger Gabby Petito — a 22-year-old travel blogger who’s been missing, for at least a few weeks now.
According to TMZ, the FBI authorities announced on Sunday they discovered what they believe to be the remains of Petito during a vast search across Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming — among parts of the country — which is one of the places she and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, had recently visited on a monthslong, cross-country road trip to the west coast … which they were documenting online.

A rep for the FBI says while forensic tests have not yet been completed, the body they discovered is consistent with Gabby’s body description. Petito’s family has also been notified about the latest development… but there is not yet a cause of death revealed.
According to Fox32Chicago, Petito had been traveling across the country with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, in a converted camper van visiting U.S. west national parks. Petito hadn’t been seen or heard from since the end of August.
Her family officially reported her missing on Sept. 11, days after Laundrie returned home to Florida in the van without her. The FBI says a body found in Wyoming is probably the remains of missing woman Gabby Petito. Meanwhile, the search for her boyfriend Brian Laundrie continues.
