Joseph Petito says that after not hearing from his daughter, Gabby Petito, for about a week, he and Gabby’s mother filed a missing person’s report. They also say they reached out to Gabby’s fiancé, Brian Laundrie, with whom she was traveling across the country and who returned home without Gabby. They claim neither Laundrie nor his family members responded to phone calls or text messages – and instead referred the family to their attorney.
