On Sunday, the FBI Denver office announced in a press conference that female remains “consistent” with Gabby Petito had been found near Grand Teton National Park, bringing a tragic end to a saga that had gripped the nation.

Supervisory Special Agent Charles Jones stated, “Full forensic identification has not been completed to confirm 100% that we found Gabby, but her family has been notified.” The cause of death is still unknown and the police are asking that anyone “who utilized the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area between the dates of August 27 and August 30. Anyone that may have had contact with Gabby, or her boyfriend or who may have seen their vehicle in that area” to share that information with the FBI.

The remains were not found far from where the white van that was being used by Petito and her boyfriend Brian Laundrie was seen on Aug. 27 by two vloggers:

Additionally, the police continue to search for Laundrie, who disappeared from his parents’ house on Tuesday. Laundrie has been identified as a person of interest in the case and had refused to talk to police since Petito had been reported missing and a nationwide search for her had begun. Law enforcement had conducted a massive man hunt for Laundrie in Carlton Reserve over the weekend, with no results. FBI Tampa tweeted:
