Gabby Petito memorial

A stone cross shown Thursday marks the location near Spread Creek in the Bridger-Teton National Forest where the remains of Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito were discovered earlier in the week. Gary Rider, a friend of Petito’s stepfather, James Schmidt, told the U.K. news site The Independent they visited the site Sept. 22 and created the memorial. Rider also said that a larger cross about 50 yards away and closer to the river “was not done by anyone connected with the search or recovery of Gabby.”
