SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - The family of Gabby Petito have announced their plans to start a foundation in honor of their daughter, whose death in Wyoming has spawned a nationwide manhunt for her fiancé.

The foundation will be aimed at helping missing individuals but the project is still in the early stages of development. You can click here to keep an eye on the website, which is currently under construction.

Gabrielle went missing on a cross-country road trip. Her remains were found and positively identified in Wyoming. Her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, is the person of interest in the case.

At a news conference at the New York office of the family’s lawyer, the family revealed tattoos they had gotten Monday night, that were designed by Gabby that say “Let it Be,” and “Believe.”

“I want her with me,” Gabby’s mother, Nichole Schmidt, said.
