Missing Person - Gabby Petito

Gabby Petito has been missing since Aug. 25 and was last seen in Grand Teton National Park.

Police are searching for 22-year-old Gabby Petito, who is believed to have been in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming before her disappearance.

Petito’s parents filed a missing person’s report Sept. 11, about two weeks after they last spoke to her over the phone.

Petito is 5 feet 5 inches tall and 110 pounds, according to a Suffolk County Police news release. She has blonde hair, blue eyes and several tattoos, the news release stated, including one on her forearm that reads “let it be.” The van she was traveling in has been recovered.

She had been traveling in a 2012 Ford Transit van with Florida license plate QFTG03 with her partner when she stopped communicating with friends and family, according to a Suffolk County Police news release.

Reportedly, Petito’s partner, with whom she was traveling, returned to their home in Florida, hired a lawyer and refused to cooperate with law enforcement officials, her family said in published reports.

According to her mother’s post on Facebook, she was last seen headed to Yellowstone National Park from Salt Lake City.

The FBI has set up a national hotline to receive tips: 1-800-CALLFBI (225-5324). That is the primary tip line.
