Mysterious disappearance in the United States: REBOUNDING, the fiance disappears in his turn
Steph Deschamps / September 18, 2021
The fiance of a young American woman whose mysterious disappearance is exciting the United States, fiancé seen by the police as person worthy of interest for the investigation, has in turn disappeared for several days, according to his parents.
Gabrielle Petito, 22, had left New York in July with her partner Brian Laundrie, 23, the beginning of a van trip that was supposed to last four months and whose stages were regularly shared by the couple on Instagram and YouTube, through photos and videos. But on September 1, Brian Laundrie returned alone with the van to their Florida home. On September 11, Gabrielle Petito's family reported her missing, saying they hadn't heard from her since late August.
After following the lovers on social networks for weeks through the beautiful landscapes of the American West, Internet users began to mobilize to try to find the girl, and the media took over the story. The police announced that they were treating Brian's disappearance after Gabrielle's as a multiple disappearance case for the time being.
When we have details, we will make a statement, tweeted North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison. On social media during their trip, the couple were seen smiling, kissing tenderly and walking hand-in-hand on the beach. But a video made public by the police of Moab, small town of Utah, came to accentuate the trouble around the role played by her boyfriend. Gabrielle Petito appears there in tears, in a car, the police having intervened for a marital dispute.
After Gabrielle's family - nicknamed Gabby - reported her missing, police had interviewed Brian and indicated that he had not provided them with any information. Brian refuses to tell us where he last saw Gabby, or to explain why he left her alone, bringing the van back. These are critical questions that require immediate answers, the traveler's family pleaded in a statement.
The FBI has opened a hotline for anyone with information, social networks are very mobilized, and a fund created on GoFundMe to raise funds to help in the search for Gabby Petito had more than 45,000 dollars Thursday.
