The latest twist in the Gabby Petito mystery came with a video and troubling footage from police officers’ body cameras. A video was released showing an unidentified woman who looks like Gabby. The woman is seen walking down a street and entering a convenience store, where she buys some food. Then, we see the same woman sitting on the back of a truck as it drives away–and this is just one part of what authorities say they know about her whereabouts.
Gabby Petito was last seen at her home in Poughkeepsie, New York, about 10 days ago. The 23-year-old young woman’s boyfriend and family members say they’re not sure if she left voluntarily or something happened to her.
After the video came out, a witness reportedly told police that he saw a woman struggling with a man in an older-model truck after the video clip he saw ended. Cops also said they found footage from a convenience store which shows a person who looks like Gabby buying refreshments after she went missing. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are still under investigation, but police haven’t ruled out abduction or foul play.
On Thursday, Dec. 21, a tipster directed authorities to the town of Dover in Dutchess County, New York (the same county where Gabby was last seen). The witness claimed that they saw someone who looked like Gabby standing with a tall man outside the Crossroads Motel on Route 22 in Beacon. That’s when police found a blue tarp, pieces of clothing that appeared to match what Gabby was wearing when she was reported missing, some personal items belonging to her (such as her cell phone), and two vehicles.
As more details emerge on Gabby’s disappearance, new evidence continues to be uncovered. Police have determined where the footage filmed on the day of Gabby’s disappearance came from, according to law enforcement officials. The video was shot at the Six Mile Market on Main Street in Wappingers Falls, New York.
Surveillance footage shows that the person who looks like Gabby went into the store and got some food after she disappeared. The store owner told police that the woman in the video was inside the store five days before Gabby vanished.
The recent developments have Gabby’s family members fearing that she may be in danger, but investigators are still trying to determine what happened to her. Authorities don’t believe that time is on their side, noting that it’s possible that something bad could’ve happened to Gabby.
Meanwhile, Gabby’s family and friends continue to keep the public informed of any updates on her disappearance. A friend of hers, Danielle Gozewich, told ABC News that she wants answers: “Half of my heart is telling me it looks like her; the other half is saying this isn’t something she would do.”
Danielle also said that Gabby is a very “loyal” person and has many friends. She added that when Gabby’s friends heard about her disappearance, they went to the convenience store where the video was shot from and looked around the area in hopes of finding out what happened to her. Danielle told ABC News: “We walked around the whole area, but there wasn’t anything.”
Gabby is 5’3″ tall and weighs about 125 lbs. She has brown eyes, long blonde hair with pink highlights, a “Love” tattoo on her left ring finger, and the word “trust” inked on her right middle finger. If you have any information that
