NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- The family of Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old Suffolk County-native whose disappearance and death made national headlines, is changing their "Find Gabby" social media pages to support searches for other missing persons.
"We have converted our original #findgabby page on [Facebook] into a missing persons page. We are expanding it to Twitter and Instagram too. A work in progress, but we are committed to finding the missing," Petito's stepfather Jim Schmidt wrote on Twitter.
Petito disappeared during a summer cross country van adventure with her fiancé Brian Laundrie, who returned home to Florida without her.
Petito's body was found in the Wyoming wilderness in September after a nearly monthlong search. Her death was ruled a homicide by strangulation.
Police wanted to question Laundrie, the only person of interest in Petito's disappearance, but he declined and went missing, too. Laundrie's remains were found in a Florida nature reserve in October.
