Person of Interest in Gabby Petito Disappearance
Laundrie’s disappearance comes off the heels of being named a person of interest in Gabby’s disappearance on Thursday. Nevertheless, police maintain the boyfriend is not wanted for a crime, and they are currently working on multiple missing person investigations.
Gabby Petito Disappearance
The missing woman has not been heard from since August 30 after going on a cross-country with her 23-year-old fiancé in July.
Laundrie returned to Florida on September 1 without Gabby while declining to notify her family that she had not returned with him. It wasn’t until September 11 that Gabby’s family reported her missing after believing she was still traveling with her fiance.
Police have since taken the van that the couple drove in out west after Laundrie drove home alone just over two weeks ago.
There were signs the couple may have been leading a strained fractured relationship in the weeks and months past, with Utah police releasing bodycam video of a sobbing Petito who confided to patrolling officers, she and Laundrie had been fighting amid ‘personal issues’. At the time of the August encounter with police, no arrests were made.
