Gabby Petito’s family are on a mission to helping find any and all missing persons.
Joseph Petito and Nichole Schmidt have joined forces again in the wake of their daughter’s murder.
Gabby’s biological parents have helped get new legislation to President Biden’s desk.
The “Help Find the Missing Act,” which is backed by Petito and Schmidt, was approved by the Senate earlier this month and The House of Representatives last week.
Per reports, the legislation calls for information on missing people to be entered into the FBI's internal database called the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
The NCIC database would then transfer this information over to the Department of Justice’s database called NamUs, aka, the National Missing Person’s and Unidentified Persons Sy
The information would be shared publicly so everyone can see who is missing provide potential help.
Per New York State law, law enforcement is currently required to put the details to missing people into NamUs, but it’s only one of 13 states required to share this information.
Gabby’s father, Joseph, told investigative reporter Kristin Thorne, “Everyone deserves to be found and here's a way to have that happen.”
