Funeral services were being held Sunday in New York for Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old blogger whose murder sparked intense interest across the country during a nationwide campaign to find her missing fianc এবং and now a man.
A group of mourners and firefighters wrapped around the funeral home were seen gathering in the past. On each side of the building sat a fire truck, each of which climbed its stairs.
Across the street, a chain link fence was decorated with posters of Petito’s pictures and messages, such as: “He has touched the world.”
Petito’s father, Joseph, told the crowd gathered at the funeral home on Sunday that the day was in his daughter’s memory, not the joy of mourning her death.
“When you leave here today, be inspired by what she brought to the table because the whole planet now knows this woman’s name. According to NBC New York.” As a father, I could no longer be proud.
Her honest father, Jim Schmidt, gave a similar message: “It’s okay to mourn for Gabby, and to feel sorrow and pain. But we want to celebrate her and how she has lived her life.
According to NBC New York, Schmidt said her honest daughter is “an example for all of us” and she has enjoyed and enjoyed “every moment of this beautiful world”.
TheServices were held near the Bareport-Blue Point community in Holbrook, New York where Petito grew up and the couple became Brian Laundry’s high school favorites before moving to Florida.
Laundry was last seen 12 days ago when he told his parents he was going hiking in Carlton Reserve, a vast desert area and swamp near his home in the northern port. Authorities have been searching the reserve area for more than a week and are back this weekend.
TV personality Duan Lee Chapman, “Doug the Bounty Hunter” joined the search in recent days and promised to catch Laundry before his 24th birthday on November 18th. Parents
“The reason I went to Mr. (Christopher) Laundry is because I carry a reputation with me,” he told Fox News Digital shortly after. “Fame is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’ll get you, but he’ll give you a second chance.’

Chapman told The New York Post he is not sure if the laundry is in reserve at 25,000 acres. He said he had already received hundreds of tips on his own hotline indicating that the laundry was on the Appalachian Trail, where he had camped for months at a time in the past.
“Whatever he does, he’s a desert guy,” Chapman told the Post.
Laundry, 23, embarked on a month-long voyage from Long Island to Oregon with Petito in July. Laundry returned to Florida in September alone. Petito’s body was found 1 week ago near a campground in Wyoming.
Laundry Petito refused to speak to law enforcement during the search, and he disappeared before his body could be found. A complaint released Thursday by the U.S. District of Wyoming accuses Laundry of unauthorized use of a Capital One debit card and multiple accounts with assets in excess of 1,000.
The complaint also charged Laundry with unauthorized access to a device and said he used a bank account without permission from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.
