There are some new photos of Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie from their days in high school that began circulating online in recent days.

Fox News recently obtained high school yearbook photos of Petito and Laundrie from Bayport-Blue Point High School’s yearbook.

Petito is a sophomore in the photos. She is seen wearing a white shirt, smiling for her photo. Laundrie, meanwhile, is wearing a brown T-shirt and has a mouth-closed smile.

A family spokesman told Fox News the couple started dating after high school despite the fact that they attended the school at the same time.

Per the New York Post, the couple started dating in March 2019.

Petito and Laundrie went on a road trip this summer across the country, visiting Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. But only Laundrie returned home on Sept. 1 to North Port, Florida, where Petito and Laundrie were living together with Laundrie’s parents. Laundrie was driving Petito’s white van.

On Sept. 11, Petito’s family reported their daughter was missing.

On Sept. 19, authorities found human remains that matched the description of Petito in Wyoming. Two days later, the remains were confirmed to be Petito. She was confirmed to have died by homicide.

Laundrie reportedly left his family’s house on Sept. 14. His family then reported him missing on Sept. 17. U.S. District Court of Wyoming has issued a federal arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie for “use of unauthorized access device” related to activities after the death of Petito on Sept. 22.

Authorities have been looking for Laundrie at the Carlton Reserve, a 25,000-acre park, in Florida. His whereabouts remain unknown.

Correction: This article previously said Petito died by suicide. She was confirmed to have died by homicide.
