JACKSON HOLE, Wyoming – The search for a missing YouTuber seen traveling through Utah and Wyoming is intensifying in the area around Grand Teton National Park. Meanwhile, her boyfriend isn't offering any more information on where the missing woman might be in Utah.

Gabby Petito's family tells ABC News everything seemed fine the last time they spoke with her while she traveled into Utah and Wyoming. She and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, were traveling in her van across the country and were documenting their "van life" for their new YouTube channel.

Currently, their Nomadic Statik channel only has one video, which shows the boyfriend and missing woman traveling through Utah earlier this year.

Petito's mother, Nicole Schmidt, said, "She sounded good, excited to continue her trip and excited to start her YouTube channel. I don't know, she seemed OK."

However, investigators confirm Laundrie drove Petito's van back to Florida, where it was found at his parent's home. Officials reported the van has been seized and taken into evidence, but they still haven't found Petito.

Her father, Jospeh Petito, told ABC News, "We don't know where she is. We love her, we miss her and we want her home."
