Police in Florida were seen dropping off a pink envelope at the home of missing Long Island woman Gabby Petito‘s boyfriend — as authorities say they’re preparing for the possibility that something “sinister” has happened to her.
Petito, 22, was last known to be in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park in late August while on a cross-country road trip in a converted van with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie, who has since returned to his home in North Port, Florida.
Exclusive photos obtained by The Post show cops dropping off an envelope outside of Laundrie’s home.
North Port police said they attempted to talk to Laundrie, but were rebuffed by his parents, who put them in touch with his attorney.
“We talked with his parents who did not make him available,” North Port police spokesman Josh Taylor told The Post.
“We would love to [talk to him]. He certainly has whatever rights he has available. We will see how it goes, we are roughly 72 hours into this,” he said.
Meanwhile, police have seized the converted van the couple had been traveling in from his home.
“It’s here at the police department. It will be processed with the FBI,” Taylor said.
Petito’s family said they became concerned about Petito’s whereabouts after several days passed since she last contacted her mother on Aug. 25.
She was reported missing Saturday to authorities in Suffolk County, New York, where her family still lives, and North Port police are assisting with the investigation.
“We’re hopeful that she’s out there somewhere, sometimes people just don’t want to communicate so that’s certainly still a viable option but we have to prepare for something more sinister,” Taylor told news station Fox 13.
Petito’s family on Monday declined to comment on her relationship with Laundrie.
“I want to keep the focus on finding [Gabby],” her father, Joe Petito told The Post amid questions about what happened to his daughter. “[Laundrie] doesn’t matter. The van [they were in] doesn’t matter.
The Post has been unable to reach Laundrie.
