Reports: Body found as police search for Gabby Petito
UPDATED 2:34 PM PT – Sunday, September 19, 2021
A body was reportedly found in the Wyoming forest where police have been searching for missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito. Fox News reported a Teton County coroner showed up on the scene on Sunday. However, the body has not yet been identified.
This comes as officials said more than 50 law enforcement officers started day two of their search in the Carlton Reserve near Florida’s Gulf Coast for Petito’s fiancé, 23-year-old Brian Laundrie.
Laundrie’s family claim they last saw him leaving with a backpack on Tuesday. They added he said he was going to the reserve. Although, Petito’s family said they believe Laundrie’s not missing, but rather hiding.
