GABBY Petito once shared a sunny photo with her fiancé Brian Laundrie, saying that she couldn't wait to "travel the world" with him.
Gabby, whose body was discovered at a Wyoming campsite last weekend, posted the image from California on Instagram last May.
The caption, next to an image of Gabby, 22, and Brian, 23, hugging, read: "I can’t wait to get back to days like this, traveling the world with you and asking strangers to take our picture… never taking moments like this for granted again! Love you."
The case between the pair has gripped the nation over recent weeks.
Brian and Gabby were roughly two months into a four-month adventure when Brian returned to his Florida home with their van on September 1.
Gabby's parents reported her missing on September 11, and since then an outpouring of support has come for the young vlogger and her family.
An autopsy performed on Tuesday confirmed that the body of Gabby had been found in Wyoming.
Laundrie is now being hunted by the FBI after an arrest warrant was issued for the 23-year-old.
He is accused of swiping a Capital One debit card and running up a $1,000 balance from August 31 until September 1.
Laundrie was reported missing by his family more than a week ago and authorities continue to search for him in the nearby Carlton Reserve.

It was reported on Sunday that the FBI had returned to the Laundries' family home, where a pair of agents were reportedly looking for any personal items that could aid in “DNA matching.”
The same day, a large crowd of mourners packed Gabby's public funeral on Long Island, near where Gabby grew up in Blue Point, New York.
Mourners also viewed the service on a livestream, which showed the full length of a wall in the chapel at Moloney's Holbrook Funeral Home.
The wall was decorated with photos of Gabby, while flowers covered the altar and memorial candles were lit nearby.
During the service, her father, Joseph, and her stepfather, Jim Schmidt, former chief of the Blue Point Fire Department, spoke to mourners.
Joseph Petito described Gabby as having "ridiculously blue eyes" and said that "her nature was always to smile and treat everybody kind."
He added: “I want you to take a look at these pictures, and I want you to be inspired by Gabby.
"If there’s a trip you guys want to take, take it now. Do it now while you have the time.
"If there is a relationship that you’re in that might not be the best thing for you, leave it now."
As days pass, online sleuths have also attempted to crack the case.
A new theory circulating online suggests Brian Laundrie may have wrapped Gabby Petito's body in a black tarp the duo carried with them on their cross-country trip.
One Tampa Bay law firm is offering a $20,000 reward to the first person who provides information that leads directly to finding Brian Laundrie.
