JOE Petito is the father of Gabby Petito, the woman who went missing after venturing on a cross-country trip with her fiancé.
Gabby has been missing since late August.
When did Gabby Petito go missing?
Petito was last seen on August 24, 2021, checking out of a hotel with her fiancé Brian Laundrie in Salt Lake City, Utah.
While Petito's mother, Nicole Schmidt, revealed that she heard from her daughter on August 27 and 30, she told Fox News she is not sure if it was actually her as only text messages were exchanged.
"It was just a text. I did not verbally speak to her," she told the media outlet.
"I can't say much, but she's no longer with the van. I don't want to say anything more than that but for people looking for her, I want them to look for her now, not look for that van anymore."
Following the unusual circumstances, Schmidt then reported her daughter missing on September 11 at around 6.55pm.
“According to family, they were last in contact with her during the last week of August. Prior to the last communication, Petito is believed to have been in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming," the police department said in a press release.
The couple left for their cross-country adventure on July 2 from Blue Point, NY, and were scheduled to reach Portland, Oregon, and visit a family friend for Halloween.
