Gabby Petito missing update – Fiancé Brian Laundrie shared Instagram post reading 'till death do us part' before trip

THE fiancé of missing woman Gabby Petito's chilling Instagram post before their road trip has been revealed.

Petito has been missing for two weeks after going on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie.

The 22-year-old New Yorker was last seen on August 24 after leaving a hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Laundrie.

While Gabby never returned home, her fiancé did and has since made headlines after he reportedly hired an attorney and refused to work with the police.

In an Instagram post shared last year, Laundrie wrote: "My biggest fear is that one day I’ll wake up and it will have all been a dream, because that is what every second has felt like since the moment we found each other.

"Till death do us part or until I wake up, I’m so happy the answer was yes, Love you hunny."
