The father of Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old travel influencer who was found dead after traveling with her fiancé, called on internet users to share stories and photos of their missing relatives on the occasion of their first anniversary. His daughter’s body was finally found.
“I want to thank everyone for the love and support shown to our families. It is thanks to all of you that we were able to bring #Gabbypetito home, ”wrote Joseph Petito.
“Today is a particularly difficult day for us, but if you can, please take a moment to share the #missingpersons story to help them get home safely. Each story deserves the same attention. “
Still bereaved, his father shared his call to action on Instagram on Monday night along with a photo of a younger Gabby wearing a New York Jets T-shirt.
“And yes, I shared this photo because they won @nyjets” on Sunday, added Petito.
On July 2, 2021, 22-year-old daughter Petito left her native Long Island on a trip through the country with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie. Her family became concerned when her future husband returned alone to his parents’ home in North Port, Florida, on September 1. Her disappearance sparked a massive search that culminated in the discovery of her body on September 19 at campground near Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming.
Gabby’s cause of d*ath was later found to be homicide by asphyxiation.
Upon returning home, Laundrie reunited with his parents, and then almost immediately went with them on a camping trip on the beach at Fort De Soto Park, south of St. Petersburg. But he never returned from a trip, and after months of speculation about his whereabouts, the laundry was found dead from a gunshot wound he inflicted on himself at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park on October 20.
In the pages of her notebook, later discovered by the authorities, the laundromat confessed to killing its would-be fiancée.
Earlier this year, Gabby’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the laundries, accusing them of not reporting while searching for their daughter, even though they knew she was already dead.
