INTERNET sleuths have made wild claims alleging that Gabby Petito was pregnant after spotting a baby-themed Pinterest board and a “sonogram” on a dirt track near where her van was parked in Wyoming.
It comes as medical examiners and FBI detectives revealed that the body found on Sunday belongs to the 22-year-old YouTuber and vlogger.
Gabby last spoke to her family on August 25 as she visited the Grand Teton National Park.
Travelers in Wyoming have since claimed that they saw the van days later.
One sleuth, who watched a video posted by travel bloggers Jenn and Kyle Bethune, shared an image that looks like a “sonogram”.
The “picture” was among several items by the roadside including what looks like a spiraled notebook.
It remains unknown if a “sonogram” was among the items found near the couple’s van.
Sleuths also speculated that Gabby may be pregnant after discovering a Pinterest board titled: “Oh Baby”.
The page contains several links to items of clothing that were previously for sale including onesies and crocheted bibs.
There are several snaps of what look like toddlers playing on the beach and cute family photos.

Women are also proudly showing off their baby bumps as they take a selfie in front of the mirror.
Some emotional snaps show parents hugging their toddlers and teaching their little ones to walk.
The claims that Gabby may be pregnant are speculation at this time.
It is not known if she was expecting a baby at the time of her disappearance.
Gabby also shared pictures of little girls who were dressed up as “grapes” for Halloween and posing as fairies.
Social media users have speculated that the Pinterest board may have been a sign that Gabby wanted to become a mom at some point in her life.
Sleuths have tried to unearth clues ever since Gabby was reported missing by her family on September 11.
Some internet detectives claimed they saw someone digging in a field near where the white van was last seen.
The Facebook group Find Gabby posted the YouTube video shared by Jenn and Kyle Bethune.
A post stated: “While editing a video tonight, Jenn found some footage of ours from August 27, [email protected] around 6pm around the Grand Tetons @ Spread Creek Dispersed Camping.
“If you were in this area on this day check your photos and footage! Please share this link to our YouTube Video to spread awareness.”
Armchair detectives quickly scoured the footage in minute detail in the hope clues or evidence could be spotted that might help the police investigation.
One person wrote: “Someone needs to check that field asap, I don’t think it’s her but there is something of significance he’s put out there, remains of her phone, jewelry, something of significance to her!!! Something is in a field to the left of the screen.”
Another Facebook user added: “Definitely a person there…” and attached a screengrab appearing to show a figure in some bushes behind the van.
A third commented: “Definitely a person in the field just before the van is shown.”
There is no evidence that there was a “person” in the field nearby.
Gabby’s fiancé Brian Laundrie was reported missing by his family last week.
Cops in Florida conducted a probe into a possible sighting of Gabby’s fiancé after a trail camera captured footage of a man that appeared to look like Laundrie.
Facebook user Sam Bass shared the image from his trail camera late on Monday.
He wrote: “I’m not saying this is the guy but whoever was on my trail camera this morning in Baker, Fl strongly fits the description of Brian Laundrie, authorities have been contacted but people in the North West Florida area be on the lookout.”
The man in the picture appears to be holding two bags: a larger light-colored backpack and a small patterned dark backpack.
Sharing an image of a man fitting Laundrie’s description, Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Tuesday: “We wanted to let you know we are aware of this report and are actively checking it out.”
They added: “There is no confirmation of this information. Obviously, we will keep everyone in the loop if and when there is anything to report.”
The smaller bag appears to match the one Laundrie was seen carrying in the bodycam footage from August 12 when cops were called to an alleged incident involving him and Gabby.
Sheriffs revealed that they found no evidence that Laundrie was in the area of the photo.
They carried out an extensive search, including a search by drone, of the area but said “nothing of note” was located, according to local reporter Brian Entin.
FBI officials found remains in Wyoming on Sunday and detectives confirmed the body belonged to Gabby on Tuesday.
The vlogger’s official cause of death is still pending.
Richard Stafford, the lawyer representing the Petito family, told Business Insider on Tuesday that the identification was confirmed.
Stafford had released a statement thanking the media and public “for giving the Petito and Schmidt family time to grieve.”
He said: “We will be making a statement when Gabby is home.”
A post uploaded to a Facebook page created by the vlogger’s family said: “Our hearts are broken.”
A second message, uploaded roughly 90 minutes later, read “#justiceforgabby”.
Authorities are still searching for Laundrie who remains a person of interest.
Police, FBI agents, and K9s started searching the vast Mabry Carlton Reserve in Florida after he allegedly told his parents that he was going on a hike.
The search was temporarily paused on Monday but has since restarted.
