A body ‘matching the description’ of Gabby Petito has been found in Wyoming in the US. 

The FBI confirmed the body was found in the campgrounds of National Park, but a full forensic identification hasn’t been completed yet.

Speaking to the media, agent Charles Jones confirmed that her family had been notified of the discovery while holding back tears.

He said: “I would like to send sincere and heartfelt condolences to Gabby’s family.

“As every parent can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for her family.

“The cause of death has not been determined.”

Petito was visiting the Grand National Park with her fiancé Brian Laundrie when she disappeared. She had been documenting the trip on YouTube.

After the news conference, the young girl’s father, Joseph, posted a photo of his daughter on Twitter. He shared a broken heart emoji and said she ‘touched the world’.

Her fiancé, Laundrie, also disappeared after declining to speak to police despite being identified as a ‘person of interest’ in the case.

Over 50 police officers, FBI, and other law enforcement have been searching for him in a wildlife reserve near Sarasota in Flordia.

He previously returned home on September 1 without Petito and she was reported missing ten days later.

They released a statement through their lawyer, in which they said: “The news about Gabby Petito is heartbreaking. The Laundrie family prays for Gabby and her family.”

Protestors gathered outside the family home on Friday before the body had been found demanding to know where Petito was.
