A local Idaho business owner said Gabby Petito and her fiance Brain Laundrie were in their store for about 15 to 20 minutes in late August and "seemed happy" according to EastIdahoNews.com.
In an interview with the outlet, the owner of Rustic Row in Victor, Idaho, said the couple stopped at their store on August 25 or 26.
"They told me they were coming from Florida. They were just in Teton Park and they said they were interested in going to Yellowstone and I told them they could go to the west entrance," the owner told EastIdahoNews.com.
"They seemed happy and when they left she yelled back from the door that they were engaged and then I said congratulations," she continued.
The owner notified the FBI of her interaction with the couple after seeing the news about Petito, the report said. The New York Post reported that the store is about 30 miles from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, believed to be Petito's last known location.
Petito's mother said she previously heard from her daughter via Facetime on Aug. 24 when the couple were en route to Wyoming from Salt Lake City, Utah. She said she received a text message from Petito later on Aug. 30 saying she had lost service in Yosemite, but doesn't believe it was from her daughter, a family lawyer previously told Insider.
Authorities are looking for Petito, a 22-year-old from Blue Point, New York, who was reported missing on September 11 after a road trip with Laundrie. A map created by Insider shows the couple's journey from their departure, which has been documented on their Instagram accounts.
Laundrie returned home in the van without Petito on September 1 from the trip to the couple's home in North Port, Florida. Local police said he refused to speak to investigators. Authorities named Laundrie a "person of interest" in his girlfriend's disappearance, and his family said they had not seen him since earlier this week.
"We have no information that any crime took place here in North Port. Brian Laundrie is a person of interest in this case," Florida's North Port Police Department said in a statement.
The location of Laundries was unknown as of Sunday, but police are looking for him on the Carlton Reservation in Florida. The search for Petito continued in Wyoming.
