Gabby Petito case: Autopsy on remains ‘consistent’ with LI woman scheduled for Tuesday

US HEADLINES:

An autopsy on a body “consistent” with a description of missing Long Island native Gabby Petito is scheduled for Tuesday, a Wyoming coroner said Monday.

Dr. Brent Blue, the Teton County coroner, told The Post that no preliminary findings nor positive identification have yet been made on the remains, which were found Monday in a remote camping area at Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest.

Blue said all further information will be released by the FBI.

Petito, 22, was on a cross-country trip with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, when she disappeared late last month.

Laundrie, 23, returned home to Florida without Petito on Sept. 1, retained a lawyer and refused to cooperate with authorities.

He has now gone missing after his family told police he went for a hike in the 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve last week and never returned — with the search in the area called off Monday.

On Monday, FBI agents and local police executed a search warrant at Laundrie’s parents’ home in North Port.

The body believed to be Petito’s was found in the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Ground at the Wyoming park, where a pair of YouTubers spotted the couple’s white 2012 Ford Transit van that Petito and Laundrie were traveling in.
