A search is underway for the boyfriend of 22-year-old traveler Gabby Petito after police discovered what is believed to be her body on the outskirts of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming—eight days after she was reported missing.
Brian Laundrie, 23, has been identified as a person of interest in the case and was last seen by family members in Florida. Dozens of officers are taking part in an intense search for him at the 24,000-acre Carlton Reserve in the state.
The FBI confirmed the body of Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito was found on Sunday by law enforcement agents but the cause of death has not yet been determined, with an autopsy set. The undeveloped camping area will remain closed until further notice while the investigation continues.

Brian Laundrie’s Instagram page has been flooded by commenters demanding that he come home and reveal whatever he knows about Pepito’s death to investigators.
One commenter, rubyruerubes, wrote, “If something happened just come forward. The longer you wait the worst your situation becomes.”
Another commenter, yourbrowsmytweezers, wrote, “Why would you return home without telling anyone what or where you ‘lost’ your fiancé?!? If you were in Innocent, you would rush right home to ask for help .. not just show up and act like nothing happened”.
Yet another commenter, thallie13, wrote, “Laundrie, it seems the FBI are looking for you. It was nice of your parents to FINALLY speak to Police today but it seems they had already snuck you out of the house, whereabouts unknown. When they find you, your parents also deserve to each be charged as an accessory.”
One more, kaneladarling, wrote, “Accidents happen we all get that.. but the family and we the people need to know if gabby is OK and where she’s at or if she needs help. Please. It will be alot easier to just tell the truth. When you tell the truth you’ll never need to cover up any lies. Please just be open with just the pure truth ❤️ please💜”

Postcards sent from Gabby Petito to Cassie Laundrie’s kids shared details from Petito’s trip with her since-fled boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. The postcards were shared by WBPF. It’s unclear when Petito sent all of the postcards, though one appeared to be postmarked on August 10.
One postcard from Garden of the Gods—a 1,300-acre park of sandstone formations in Colorado Springs, Colorado—mentions that a squirrel stole food from her during a mid-hike rest.
“Oh my Gosh! Me and Uncle Brian were sitting on a rock eating a snack after our long walk, and the fattest squirrel I’ve ever seen!!! Came right on my lap!! And with its tiny hands stole a piece of the granola bar I was eating!! Can you believe it! He must steal everyone’s food. Oh man! That’s wild!” Petito wrote.
She signs the card “Aunt Gabby.”
Another postcard, sent from Arches National Park in Utah, mentions that the park’s most popular rock formations are called “hoodoos.”
Another card, from Red Canyon in California’s Dixie National Forest, mentioned Petito and Brian Laundrie’s star-gazing.
“The sky here is so open, there’s more stars than I’ve ever seen!! Scorpio is so big and bright every night! It’s always the first one me and uncle Brian spot!”
Yet another postcard, sent from Utah, simply says, “Hey boys. Really hope that you are so excited for school!!! We miss you so much!”

Steven Bertolino, Brian Laundrie’s lawyer, has acquired more than 30 1-star reviews on Google since representing the fiance of Gabby Petito following her disappearance.
Most of the reviews began three days ago, following Friday’s announcement that Laundrie had vanished and his family was speaking to investigators in detail for the first time.
A review left by Bill Bizzo said, “Individuals like this bertolino make lawyers look like slime. Seems he’d rather hurt the Petito’s than help them find their poor daughter. HE IS DISGUSTING!”
Another from Laura Richardson read, “Really? A man leaves with his partner; comes back in partners vehicle without partner; hires YOU and you tell em to hide while giving the family of his partner the finger.. looks like Grand theft to me… arrest him!”
One user, David N, wrote, “He’s a slimeball. Client confidentiality is important but over someone’s life? Poor morals. Hope he doesnt have children.”
Others reviews were critical of Bertolino’s professionalism, quality, responsiveness and value. Some users simply left one star with no explanation.
There are no Google reviews of Bertolino prior to him representing Laundrie. However, a Womply review from May 2019 rates him as 5-stars with no comme
