JACKSON, WY (WOAY) – A body of “consistent with the description of” Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old woman who went missing while on a cross-country road trip with her boyfriend, was discovered in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.
The FBI Denver, the National Park Service and law enforcement made the announcement Sunday evening in Grand Teton National Park.
The Teton County coroner confirmed to ABC News on Sunday afternoon that the agency dispatched resources to a body found in the national forest. No further details were disclosed, including whether the body is that of a man or a woman.
The development came as a search for Brian Laundrie, Petito’s boyfriend, resumed in Florida.
Petito’s parents reported her missing on Sept. 11 after not speaking with her for two weeks.
Laundrie had been named by police as a “person of interest” in Petito’s disappearance. The 23-year-old Laundrie, who returned home more than two weeks ago without Petito and has refused to speak to police, has not been seen since Tuesday, according to law enforcement officials.
