Gabby Petito was sharing beautiful photos, traveling around the country with her boyfriend, when suddenly it was like she disappeared.
Gabby Petito, 22, from Long Island, N.Y., and her boyfriend Brian Landry went on a road trip to U.S. national parks in early July. The idea seemed like a great idea, except that after the girl published her last post on her Instagram on August 26, she hadn’t been heard from since three weeks earlier. She had officially been reported missing.
Petito’s mother, Blue Point resident Nicole Schmidt, reported her daughter missing to police late last Saturday night. The woman said she last contacted her daughter by video link on Aug. 23 or 24. After that, Nicole says, messages came from Gabby through the end of the month. But the woman doubts the messages were actually from her daughter, the New York Post wrote.
The girl’s parents can’t find room for themselves, because the only thing they can do now is just wait. Whatever they could do, they’ve done. They created a page on the service GoFoundMe, on which they gave a detailed description of the “very, very free-spirited” girl. She is 1.65 meters tall, weighs only 50 kilograms, blonde with blue eyes, has a tattoo of a triangle with flowers on her left arm and “Let it be” on her right arm. She also has a belly button piercing.
The car in which the couple had been driving around the country had already been found by authorities. Brian is also back home. Except that he decided not to share any details and refused to cooperate with the investigation, which can’t help but be alarming.
