AMATEUR sleuths are saying Gabby Petito’s last text to her mother was a cry for help while she was on a road trip with her fiance Brian Laundrie before he returned home without her.
After Petito’s mom revealed her slain daughter’s final text message to her, internet investigators are piecing together what she meant – and reveal the coded text was a secret “plea for help” prior to her disappearance and then strangulation.

“No service in Yosemite” read Petito’s last text.
Petito’s mom Nichole Schmidt said she received the chilling message on August 30, weeks after her daughter and future son-in-law started their cross-country road trip across the United States.
But Schmidt told the New York Post that she’s in disbelief her daughter was the true author behind the message, instead insisting it was someone else.
“I do not believe the text on August 30th was from my daughter,” Schmidt said. “The van was in Florida on the 1st [of September]. I think I can do the math.”
Just three days earlier, Petito’s mom got a message from her daughter saying “Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls.”
Although Petito’s mom inferred that the text was probably in reference to her father and Petito’s grandfather Stan, she found it “odd” given that Petito never referred to her grandpa by his first name.
However, a number of sleuths have taken to the internet to say Stan is actually an acronym that stands for “Send The Authorities Now.”
In a Facebook group dedicated to finding Petito, some have speculated that’s indeed what STAN means.

“What if she was scared by didn’t want Brian to get angry so then she added ‘I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls’ just to show him she wasn’t asking for help.”
Others have speculated that Stan actually refers to the 2000 Eminem song in which a man named Stan kidnaps and kills his pregnant wife.
Hypotheses surrounding the text comes just days after the coroner’s office determined Petito died of by strangulation and ruled her death a homicide.
It also comes as Laundrie continues to be on the lam, evading authorities and several bounty hunters in their search for him.
Officers allege that Gabby’s boyfriend is “hindering their investigation” by not cooperating with them.
Laundrie has not been named a suspect in her disappearance subsequent death. He is only sought after by police for allegedly using her credit card following her disappearance.
