Gabby Petito’s father has launched a new foundation in her honor. It will focus on assisting families in locating their lost children. The Gabby Petito Foundation, according to Joseph Petito, will offer tools and advice to families attempting to bring their children home.
“No one should have to find their child on their own,” he said, announcing the new charity on Twitter on Saturday. Petito said that they are seeking to assist people in circumstances similar to Gabby’s. He also included a link to the foundation’s website with the hashtag #gabbypetito. It will be located in Blue Point, New York, where Petito grew up.

Parents of Gabby Petito Thankful For Everyone’s Support
According to the charity’s website, Gabby’s family is thankful for everyone’s support and finds solace in the fact that she has impacted so many people.
Relatives and loved ones of Gabby Petito, 22, will conduct a memorial ceremony in Long Island on Sunday. Everyone is welcome to attend the memorial at Moloney’s Holbrook Funeral Home in Suffolk County from 12 to 5 pm.
Prior to the live-streamed funeral, Moloney’s Holbrook Funeral Home produced a beautiful video tribute to Gabby Petito. In place of flowers, the family has requested everyone to give contributions to the new charity.
Gabby Petito’s body was found a week ago in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. Police continue to search an alligator-infested reserve near his parent’s house in North Port, Florida, for her missing lover Brian Laundrie. Laundrie had been missing for two weeks now.
On Saturday, a pared-down police search team returned to the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida. The missing man told relatives he was going on a walk the day before last.
Where Is Brian Laundrie Now?
According to family attorney Steve Bertolino, he left home without his smartphone or wallet. Rumors of potential sightings even circulated on social media. None of the sightings have been verified as of yet.
Reality TV personality Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman lent his support to the hunt for Laundrie on Saturday, according to a published report in The Independent.
On Saturday afternoon, Chapman arrived in Christopher and Roberta Laundrie’s North Port house. He arrived in a 4WD vehicle just before 4:30 p.m. and knocked on the front door. When no one responded, he stayed for a few minutes at home before returning to his car. He previously said that he and his wife, Francie Frane, involved themselves in the inquiry.
