INTERNET sleuths trying to work out what happened to Gabby Petito are convinced they have spotted someone digging in a field near where a white van was seen.
The Facebook group Find Gabby posted a YouTube video yesterday which they claimed showed Gabby Petito’s white van in the Wyoming National Park.
The post said: “While editing a video tonight, Jenn found some footage of ours from August 27, [email protected] around 6pm around the Grand Tetons @ Spread Creek Dispersed Camping.
“If you were in this area on this day check your photos and footage! Please share this link to our YouTube Video to spread awareness.”
Armchair detectives quickly scoured the footage in minute detail in the hope clues or evidence could be spotted that might help in explaining what happened to the missing woman.
Responding to the post, one person wrote: “Someone needs to check that field asap, I don’t think its her but there is something of significance he’s put out there, remains of her phone, jewellery, something of significance to her!!! Something is in a field to the left of screen.”
Another person added: “Definitely a person there…” and attached a screengrab appearing to show a figure in some bushes behind the van.
A third person said: “Definitely a person in the field just before the van is shown.”
While officials have not confirmed it is Petito’s van a body said to resemble the 22-year-old YouTuber has been discovered near the site and an autopsy is due to take place tomorrow, September 21.
FBI officials said in a statement: "Full forensic identification has not been completed and we do not yet know the cause of death."
The FBI is still investigating Gabby Petito's disappearance and accepting information from the public.
"We continue to seek information from anyone who utilized the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area between the dates of August 27-30, 2021 and who may have had contact with Gabby or her boyfriend, or who may have seen their vehicle," said the agency in a statement.
Information can be shared tips.fbi.gov, and photos relevant to the case can be uploaded at fbi.gov/petito.

In recent developments in the bizarre case, cops have now called off the search for Laundrie after he went missing as well.
Laundrie was named as a “person of interest” in the case – days after returning home alone from the couple's cross-country road trip on September 1.
He disappeared on September 14 after telling his parents he was going hiking in Carlton Reserve in Florida – an area made up of around 25,000 acres of wilderness.
Cops are also fearing that Laundrie may have hurt himself while in the reserve.
North Port police spokesperson Josh Taylor said: “Does anyone not think it’s possible he went out there and shot himself in the head? Sure.”
The attorney for the Laundrie family released a statement the same day: "The news about Gabby Petito is heartbreaking. The Laundrie family prays for Gabby and her family."
Gabby's dad Joe Petito said his daughter "touched the world" in an emotional Instagram post.
PETITO AND LAUNDRIE ON ROAD TRIP
The vlogger and her fiancé Laundrie started their road trip in July after leaving New York.
They traveled in their white camper van across the midwestern US and visited national parks in Kansas, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming.
The 22-year-old was last seen leaving a Salt Lake City hotel with Laundrie on August 24.
Just weeks earlier, the pair had been probed by cops about an apparent dispute in Utah.
She last spoke to her family on August 25 as she informed them that they had made it to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Gabby was reported missing on September 11 – more than two weeks after speaking to her mom.
Laundrie was named as a "person of interest" on September 15 and accused by police of "hindering" the investigation. He has not been charged.
