Fox News digital reports that a coroner arrived in the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the dogs participating in the search then left the area.
“I can confirm that the coroners’ officer was dispatched by an assistant coroner to the scene to retrieve a body that was found in the forest,” Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said, News reported. com.
Authorities have not yet confirmed whether the body is male or female or if it is the 22-year-old woman, who went missing late last month while traveling with her fiance.
Police have yet to comment on the situation, while the FBI said they and their law enforcement partners will provide an update on the investigation into Ms Petito’s disappearance at 4:00 p.m. MDT. at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park.
Gabby Petito has not been seen since August 24, when she walked out of a hotel room in Utah. She spoke to her mother the next day to tell her that she and her fiance Brian Laundrie would continue their trip together and that their next stop was Grand Teton National Park.
Since then, there have been no confirmed sightings from Ms Petito. Her fiance Brian Laundrie, who returned home without her on September 1, has also been missing since. Significant research is also underway for him in the Carlton Reservation in Florida.
Gabby Petito is one of three people missing near Grand Teton Park this summer. Cian McLaughlin, 27, was reported missing in June after hiking the area, while Robert Lowery, 46, who is also still missing, was last seen on August 19 at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort at Teton Village.
