Gabby Petito, 22, took a trip with her boyfriend in a converted campervan in early July to visit the national parks, but she disappeared at the end of August and her family has not heard from her for more than two weeks . Now her mother is asking for help in finding her daughter.
Nicole Schmidt, Petito’s mother, told Fox News that the last verbal conversation she had with her daughter was on August 25.
“I don’t know if she left Grand Teton or not,” Schmidt said. “I got a text from her on the 27th and 30th, but I don’t know if it was technically her or not, because it was just a text. I didn’t speak to her verbally.”
Petito and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, began their road trip in early July, traveling first from Florida to New York. They then left New York and eventually arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah, in August, but left town amid thick forest fire smoke.
The couple stopped in Grand Teton National Park on August 25, Petito’s last known location, ahead of a planned trip to Yellowstone. They were traveling in a white 2012 Ford van converted into an RV.
“I can’t say much, but she’s not with the van anymore,” Schmidt told Fox News of her daughter. “I don’t want to say anything more, but for the people who are looking for her, I want them to look for her now, and not this van anymore.”
