The boyfriend of a missing Florida woman who reportedly vanished in late August wrote a cryptic post last year about their relationship.
Gabrielle Petito, 22, reportedly left New York around June 17, after traveling from Florida to attend her brother’s high school graduation. From there, Petito and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, reportedly embarked across the country in a converted camper van, stopping at national parks in Utah and Colorado along the way.
According to The Sun, Laundrie wrote in an Instagram post shared last year: “My biggest fear is that one day I’ll wake up and it will have all been a dream, because that is what every second has felt like since the moment we found each other.”
“Till death do us part or until I wake up, I’m so happy the answer was yes, Love you hunny,” he also wrote in the post, which presumably refers to Petito.
In a statement issued to The Sun, Laundrie’s family said there appears to be a search underway at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, where Petito was last seen in late August.
Laundrie returned to Florida without Petito, and allegedly parked the camper van in his parents’ driveway. Petito’s mother reported her missing on Saturday.
Police have not named Laundrie a person of interest in Laundrie’s disappearance. He has obtained an attorney and has declined to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation.
