The search for Gabby Petito, the Long Island native who went missing in September and was later found strangled to death, has led to the discovery of the bodies of at least nine other missing people. The most recent body that the police found was that of Emily Ferlazzo, 22, whose parents reported her missing after her husband claimed he had not seen his wife for days. Joseph Ferlazzo, her husband, later confessed to shooting her and dismembering her body. 

In another case, remains have been found in the high desert near the last known whereabouts of missing New Jersey woman Lauren Cho, Southern California authorities searching for the woman have said. However, no connection has been officially made to 30-year-old Lauren "El" Cho. Cho was reportedly last seen in the area around Hoopa Road and Ben Mar Trail between Morongo Valley and Yucca Valley on June 28. Sheriff's officials have said that the remains' identification by the San Bernardino County coroner could take several weeks.
