MOOSE, Wyo. — The FBI Denver shared an update on September 18th stating that the FBI Denver and its Wyoming Resident Agencies, in coordination with the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Jackson Police Department, have been conducting ground surveys at the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area looking for Gabby Petito who was reported missing on September 11th. The area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest on the east boundary of Grand Teton National Park is closed to the public and will remain closed until the surveys are complete.
A video posted by bloggers Red White & Bethune on September 19th, taken while driving through the Spread Creek dispersed camping area on Aug 27th shows what appears to be the couples van in the spread creek campground. The bloggers noted the van stating “We had passed by a white van with Florida Plates. We noticed it because we are originally from Florida and wanted to stop and say hi.”
Prior to traveling to Grand Teton National Park the couple was in Moab, UT. Earlier this week a video released by the Moab Police Department shows that an officer pulled over the van on Aug. 12 after it was seen speeding and hit a curb near the entrance to Arches National Park.
The FBI seeks assistance from anyone who utilized the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area between the dates of August 27-30, 2021 who may have had contact with Gabby or her boyfriend, or who may have seen their vehicle. If you were in the area and saw Gabby and/or her boyfriend or their vehicle, please provide that information to the FBI through these tiplines: tips.fbi.gov, 1-800-CALL-FBI, or 303-629-7171. Photos and videos may be uploaded via the FBI’s digital media tipline dedicated to this case: fbi.gov/petito.
