Gabby Pettito hasn’t been seen since Aug. 24, when she checked out of a hotel room in Utah. She spoke to her mother the next day and told her that she and her fiancé Brian Laundry would continue their road trip together and that their next stop was Grand Teton National Park.
There has been no confirmation of Ms Petito’s sighting since then. Her fiancé Brian Laundry, who returned home without her on September 1, has also gone missing. A huge search for him is also going on in Florida’s Carlton Reserve.
Gabby Pettito is one of three people who went missing near Grand Teton Park this summer. Sean McLaughlin, 27, was reported missing in June after hiking in the area, while Robert Lowery, 46, who is still missing, was last seen on August 19 at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village.
