MOSCOW, Wyo (AP) – Authorities say Gabriel Gabby “Gabi” Petito is believed to have disappeared while traveling across the country with his estranged boyfriend. It is currently being sought in Florida Nature Conservation.

The cause of death of FBI Special Representative Charles Jones has not yet been determined.

“A full legal investigation has not been completed to verify that we have found Gabin. This is an incredibly difficult time for Petito’s family and friends.

In a statement, a former lawyer for the Petito family asked for his family’s condolences.

Attorney Richard Benson Starford said the family would make an official statement later, and thanked officials from the FBI, Teton Search and Rescue, and other agencies involved in Pito’s search.

“My family and I are forever grateful,” Starford said in a statement.

The undeveloped camp area east of Grand Teton, bordering the National Forest, will remain closed until further investigation, Jones said.

Investigators say investigators are still searching for information if anyone has seen Petito or Brian Laurrin around camp sites over the weekend.

Petito and her boyfriend Landry went on a cross-country trip in July in a modified van to visit the national parks of the United States. He was alone when police returned to his parents’ home on June 1, Port of Florida, alone.

Laundrie has been identified as interested. He was seen by family members in Florida last Tuesday.

More than 50 law enforcement officers on Sunday launched a second day of search for Landry, a 24,000-acre (9,712-hectare) Carlton Reserve Florida, more than 100 miles (160 km) trail. , As well as campgrounds.

Petito’s family reported a missing person on September 11 in Suffolk County, New York.

Petito’s family begged the Landry family to tell them where their son was last seen. Petito and Laundry were childhood lovers when they grew up on Long Island, New York. His parents later moved 35 miles (55 km) south of Sarasota to the northern port.

The couple’s trip to the Ford Transit van began in July on Long Island. According to their social media accounts, they were scheduled to arrive in Oregon in late October, but Petito disappeared with her family from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming at the end of August.

A police video released by the Moabite Police Department in Utah shows an officer pulling his car off on August 12 after he was seen slowing down near the entrance to Arks National Park. The body camera video shows an emotional petite sitting on a police sailor, as officers question Laundrie.

The Moabite police eventually decided not to make any charges and instead the couple spent the night, checking out Laundrie at the motel and staying with Petito’s modified sleeping van.
