Parents of American woman Gabby Petito has reportedly flown to Wyoming to collect her remains after an autopsy determined she was strangled to death.

Ms. Petito, 22, died three to four weeks before her body was found Sept. 19 near an undeveloped campground along the border of Grand Teton National Park in remote northern Wyoming, Teton County Coroner Dr. Brent Blue said at a news conference yesterday.

It was not clear whether the determination could lead to further charges against Mrs Petito’s boyfriend and travel partner, Brian Laundrie, who is considered a person of interest for her disappearance and remains unaccounted for.

The independent has reported that Mrs. Petito’s parents have traveled to Wyoming, with her father Joseph to pick up Mrs. Petito’s remains.

Her body has been forwarded to a crematorium for cremation.

Mrs. Petito had been on a cross-country trip with her boyfriend.

North Port Police on Saturday said authorities are conducting a search for Laundrie at the Carlton Reserve, a natural area with more than 80 miles of hiking trails in Venice, Florida.  About 50 law enforcement officials from five local agencies and the FBI are looking for Laundrie, Taylor, a police spokesman, said at a Saturday conference, adding that Laundrie has a "enormous pressure" on him to provide answers to what is going on.

She was reported missing on September 11 by her parents after she did not respond to calls and text messages for several days while the couple visited parks in the West.

Mrs Petito and Mr Laundrie posted online about their journey in a white Ford Transit van that was converted into a motorhome.

No charges were filed and no serious injuries were reported.

Investigators have searched for Mr. Laundrie in Florida and also searched his parents’ home in North Port, about 56 miles south of Sarasota.
