Moab police have released the full 1 hour and 17-minute body camera video of an interaction with Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito and her fiancé on August 12, before her disappearance.

Weeks before Petito disappeared, she and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, got in an argument in Arches National Park in Utah. A witness saw Petito slap Laundrie, and he pushed her away. That witness says he called the police because he feared the worst, and Petito’s family is demanding answers about what happened out west.

The incident was labeled by the Moab Police Department as disorderly conduct, and a police officer wrote, “I do not believe the situation escalated to the level of a domestic assault as much as that of a mental health crisis.”

North Port Police and the FBI held a news conference to give an update on the case Thursday. Petito’s father was at the news conference.

“What I need from everybody here is help,” said Joe Petito. “The goal is still not met, and that goal is to bring Gabby home safe.”
