A medical examiner in Wyoming is set to perform an autopsy Tuesday on a body found in a camping area in Bridger-Teton National Forest believed to be that of missing Blue Point native Gabby Petito.
The body was found Sunday.
On Monday, Gabby's family asked for privacy to allow them to grieve for their 22-year-old daughter who was on what was supposed to be an adventurous, fun trip with her fiancé.
Gabby's father Joe tweeted a picture of his daughter with a broken heart emoji.
It has been nine days since Petito's family reported her missing.
Petito's family told investigators they thought Gabby's last stop was in late August at the park.
Over the weekend, Fox News confirmed a woman on TikTok said she picked up Brian Laundrie, Gabby's fiancé, in the park and that is when the FBI's search seemed to narrow in on an open campground space called Spread Creek.
The FBI is still asking for anyone who was in the area at the time to report anything they may have seen.
