Gabby, a 22-year-old travel influencer from Florida, was found dead last month just weeks after embarking on a road trip with her fiancé Brian Laundrie.
According to a search warrant application posted by the Florida news station WWSB, Gabby's text message reads: “Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls.”
‘Stan’ is her grandfather’s name although Gabby’s mum Nichole Schmidt said the text was ‘odd’ because Gabby never called him that. She ‘was concerned that something was wrong with her daughter,’ the warrant states.
Another text message sent on 30th August said: “No service in Yosemite” however an attorney representing Gabby’s family subsequently told Insider they do not believe the 22-year-old blogger sent it.
Investigators later announced a body had been found in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, and subsequent tests revealed it was Gabby's.
Footage of the Ford Transit Connect camper van Gabby and Brian used for their travels was filmed by another travel blogger.
YouTuber Jen Bethune recorded the footage on 27th August at the Spread Creek Campground.
Jen said she remembered driving past the van and took notice because it had Florida licence plates. Gabby and her fiancé Brian lived together with his parents in North Port, Florida.
Jen told Fox News she remembered driving past the van and took notice because it had Florida licence plates. Gabby and her fiancé Brian lived together with his parents in North Port, Florida.
She said: “The reason why we noticed the van is because we’re from Florida and the van had Florida plates and we wanted to stop by and say hi.
“But the van was very dark, closed up, looked like no activity so we ended up continuing to drive.”
