Gabby Petito 于 8 月下旬与男友进行越野公路旅行后据报失踪. 两人住在一辆改装的露营车里, 她父亲说她可以在任何地方. Gabby was last known to be in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
“Just keep focusing on her and what she looked like,” Petito said. “If you’re going to be traveling anywhere – because she could be anywhere. As far as I know right now, she could be anywhere.”
“I need everyone to be on the lookout for Gabby. This was way we can get her home and give her the care that she needs, because obviously she needs help, and we got to help.”
Police have seized the couple’s van after Gabby’s boyfriend, 布赖恩·劳德里, returned to his parents’ home in North Port, 佛罗里达. Authorities reportedly attempted to contact Laundrie, but his parents’ directed them to his attorney.
Joe Petito has also not been in touch with Laundrie.
“I’ve been instructed not to, and the family has been instructed not to.”
Petito quickly returned focus to his daughter.
“I have no comment on Brian,” 他说. “I’m only here to talk about Gabby.”
While remaining hopeful that his daughter is only lost or hurt, Petito again pleaded with viewers to commit her image to memory and stay on the lookout.
“She needs us, and she needs everyone that’s watching this. 所以, everyone – I’m talking to you. Just please be on the lookout, and I’m begging you. 请, please keep an eye out.”
Gabby Petito is 5 脚, 5 inches tall and 110 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. She has a tattoo on her finger and one on her right arm that says, “Let it be.”
