A camper, who was in Wyoming in August, claimed she saw Brian Laundrie driving Gabby Petito’s van by herself near Grand Teton National Park. This happened two days after Petito’s mother said that she last spoke with her.

After Petito returned from a cross country road trip, Laundrie, Petito's fianc was identified as a person of concern in her missing persons investigation. Insider was confirmed Tuesday by a lawyer representing Petito's family that the body found near Grand Teton National Park border by the FBI had been identified as Petito.

Although the case has been elevated to criminal investigation, Laundrie who has been missing since September 14 has not been charged.

Jessica Schultz, a van life camper, told The San Francisco Chronicle she saw Laundrie at the Spread Creek Dispersed camping area near the park on August 26. According to her, she was behind Laundrie's van in their white van before he left it on the side of a road.

Schultz stated that he believes he got out to look around or something. "There is absolutely nobody in the passenger seat. It looks like he doesn't have any girl there."

According to the report, Schultz witnessed the van at the same location the next day. It was strange to see the van still there because it wasn't in a designated spot and there weren't any hammocks or tents around.
