FBI agents and other law enforcement began searching for Petito in the Wyoming forest this weekend.
Petito and her fiancé, 23-year-old Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country trip from New York to Oregon when 22-year-old Gabby disappeared.
A witness tipped off law enforcement and said they saw the white 2012 Ford Transit the two were traveling in near Spread Creek on August 27.
Petito’s family reported Gabby missing on September 11, a couple weeks after she last spoke with her mom.
In a bizarre twist, police body cam footage from August 12 released showed Gabby Petito crying over a fight she had with Laundrie shortly before she disappeared.
Laundrie is currently a person of interest.
The FBI will be holding a press conference at 4pm Mountain time:
