UPDATE: Officials have revealed that human remains were discovered consistent with the description of Gabby Petito. Her family has been informed. Our continued thoughts are with Gabby‘s loved ones.
“I can confirm that the coroners officer was dispatched by a deputy coroner on the scene to recover a body that was found in the forest,” Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said Sunday.
Gabby disappeared while on a trip with her partner, Brian Laundrie. Brian Laundrie is apparently now missing in Florida as his family claims to not have seen him since this past Tuesday.
Fox is reporting that “10 minutes after the coroner arrived on the scene, search dogs participating in the search left the search area.” A press conference will be taking place soon in Grand Teton National Park.
Our continued thoughts are with the Petito family. Stay tuned as we learn more.
