The search for a missing 22-year-old girl appears to have come to a tragic end. A body discovered in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming on Sunday is consistent with the description of Gabby Petito, the FBI said. She was on a cross-country trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, when she disappeared and he returned home without her. Laundrie himself, who is a person of interest in the case, is now missing as well.
