Gabby Petito’s loved ones joined Twitter over the weekend to share emotional messages and sentimental photos of the 22-year-old, including a special call to Brian Laundrie to face himself.
Petito’s father has been on the social media platform since his daughter’s disappearance. On Saturday, Gabby Petito’s mother, stepparents and grandmother posted their first tweets of emotional tributes to the Long Islander-born.
Joseph Petito, Gabby’s father, said his daughter had “already saved lives”.
“We are sent so many stories of relationships left without proper planning for safety and people are found for their influence. We have a lot more to do, but it’s a start, ”he wrote.
Nichole Schmidt, Gabby’s mother, had a message for her fiancé: “Mama Bear is getting angry! Get in touch!”
“It still seems surreal. Miss you Gabs,” wrote her stepfather Jim Schmidt.
“Gabby, I’ll love you to the moon and back forever,” Tara Petito tweeted.
And a message from Gabby’s grandmother came with a picture of her as a child.
“I miss my beautiful granddaughter #gabbypetito every day. My tears won’t stop,” she said.
It’s been 17 days since Laundrie allegedly told his parents he was hiking in a sprawling Florida wildlife sanctuary.
The search for laundry continues. Laundrie is the main FBI person responsible for Petito’s disappearance, officials said, but he was not charged with any crime-related crime at the time.

It’s been 16 days since Gabby Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie allegedly told his parents that he was hiking in a sprawling Florida wildlife sanctuary. It’s a massive manhunt – but a seasoned US marshal says he doesn’t think Laundrie was ever there. This week, retired US Marshal Craig Caine gives his opinion in The Debrief.
