22 year-old Florida woman, Gabby Petito, went on a cross-country road trip along with her fianće, Brian Laundrie. Petito was reported missing on September 11, 10 days after Laundrie returned to Florida. Laundrie has since refused to speak with authorities, despite police and her family pleading that he help find her.
On August 12, officers almost charged Petito with domestic violence after she allegedly slapped Laundrie during an argument, and again while they were getting pulled over. Officers did not charge Petito after she told them she had no intention to physically hurt Laundrie, despite leaving him with scratch marks.
