Grand Teton map shows where the body was found

  • A body believed to be Gabby Petito was found in a Wyoming camping area on Sunday.
  • This map shows where he was found, not far from what is believed to be his last known location.
  • An autopsy of the body is due to take place on Tuesday.

Authorities found a body at a Wyoming campground that matches the description of missing Gabby Petito, the FBI said Sunday.

The location of the discovery – in the Spread Creek scattered camping area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest – can be seen on the map above. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, CNN reported.

A massive search for missing persons was launched on September 11, when Petito was reported missing following a road trip with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie.

Laundrie returned home to Florida on September 1 without Petito. From the combined posts of their social media accounts, it appears the couple traveled to reservations in Kansas, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.

This map summarizes the various locations from which they appear to have posted or been heard from:

Pending forensic confirmation of the identity of the body found on Sunday, Petito’s last known location is believed to be somewhere in the sprawling Grand Teton National Park.

It’s on the western edge of the Bridger-Teton National Forest, where the body was found.

The area around the Spread Creek campground has been closed until further notice, according to Denver FBI agents:

Petito’s family said through their attorney that the news of the discovery was “heartbreaking” and asked not to be disturbed by the media while they process the development.

Early Sunday, Jenn and Kyle Bethune, a pair of travel vloggers, posted GoPro footage from their travels which they say shows Petito’s converted 2012 Ford Transit van Aug. 27 at the Spread Creek camping area.

The search for Laundrie, who was declared missing on Saturday, continues at Florida’s Carlton Reservation in Sarasota.
