Travel Blogger Jenn Bethune, her husband Kyle Bethune along with their 3 children were traveling the United States as a full time RV family.
On what would have been their son Ethan’s 17th birthday who they lost tragically 10 years ago in an automobile accident. This led them back to look at their video footage from their visit to Grand Teton where they found Gabby’s van in their footage.
Ethan Bethune was 7-year-old as at the time of this death passed away in a motor vehicle accident on the way to Disney World to celebrate his birthday. He was described as the most unique and caring kid. For being such a young person he had empathy and kindness in his heart, that was well beyond his years.
22-year-old Gabrielle Petito who is an American woman from Suffolk County, New York, was reported missing on September 11, 2021.
She was said to be traveling across the United States with her fiancé. Her family lost contact with her in late August when she was in or near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
According to a Facebook by Red White & Bethune, “Tonight I was editing our video with footage from August 27th 2021 at around 6:00pm from the Grand Tetons area. It was in Spread Creek Dispersed Camping land.
We passed by a white van and both Kyle and I recognized that they had Florida plates (we are from Florida too) and wanted to stop to say hi, but the van was dark and it didn’t look like there was anyone there. So we kept going. We eventually left and parked up front in the gravel area.
Today I got a comment from someone on Instagram saying “please tell your 10k followers about finding gabby!”
I didn’t think much of it, I knew we were in the Tetons area around the 25th but wasn’t sure which day.
Tonight, I was editing our Sunday video and it was of our August 27th footage. I paused my editing and went to lay in bed. I opened Facebook and saw that @fettisonthemove had tagged me in a story asking me to check all my videos from the 25th-27th of August. I INSTANTLY got a bone chilling feeling.
I leapt up and ran to my laptop. I watched the rest of my footage and sure enough, her van was in the video. We saw the National Park Service Post an update that they were looking at activity in the Spread Creek Area of the Tetons.
The reason why I am sharing this, is because when we left to go up to the gravel lot, we got a message from someone on Instagram saying they saw us drive through the Spread Creek Area and are now following us, watching our videos. We have our logo on the back of the bus with social media stickers.
I thought that if other people in the area that day saw us and started watching our videos, they may watch this one and realize that they too may have seen Gabby Pepito or Jason Laundrie in the area that day and could lead investigators to find Gabby!!”
