The search for Patito was being carried out based on details received on her last known location. After a body was found in the main search area in Wyoming on September 19, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent Charles Jones announced at a press conference that the remains coincided with Petito’s description. He further elaborated that full forensic identification had not been completed to confirm that the body was Gabby’s. However, they had informed her family about the discovery. He then added that the cause of death was uncertain.

Jones extended his sincere and heartfelt condolences to her family. He also asked everyone to respect their privacy as they mourned the loss of their daughter. The North Port Police tweeted on Sunday that they were “saddened and heartbroken” to learn about Petito’s death. They added that they will continue to work with the FBI in search of more answers.

On Friday, September 17, his parents reported that they had not seen their son in several days. The police underscored in a statement that while he was a person of interest, “he is not wanted for a crime.”

The couple documented their trip and uploaded it on YouTube. They seemed to be enjoying their journey. However, last month, the police in the United State’s Utah responded to a domestic violence report which involved Petito and Laundrie. The US media published footage from police bodycam which showed the woman confessing that she had an argument with her partner.

On Sunday, Jones said that public response for a request for tips had been “remarkable.” He then said that investigators continued to seek information related to Petito and Laundrie.
