Why Gabby Petito?

Gabby Petito's family held a press conference this morning , thanking everyone across the country for their support . Someone, I think it was their lawyer also took a few questions about what the family thought about the suspect in her death, her boyfriend named Brian Laundrie being on the run. The lawyer said the FBI was working on it.
I went to Bing search to try and find out something about Gabby Petito and why she would become this person of such great national (news media) interest. Almost everything that came up in the first 200 or so entries was about her death , not her life and what she was famous for. So I saw a link to the wikipedia article on her death and I went to that thinking I could then find a link to the wikipedia page about her, which would show me why she was famous. Then, there is no wikipedia page "Gabby Petito".
She was this renowned You Tube and Instagram "influencer" , but she doesnt have a wikipedia page?
My understanding is she liked to travel around the country with her boyfriend, posting videos of her "van life". Thousands, tens of thousands, I dont know, millions? , evidently cared about her "van life".
This is known as talent in some places I guess. Make yourself known for being known.
There was a mother here in the Chicago area who complained because at the same time the world was in fear for Gabby Petitos fate her son had been missing for a month, and there seemed to be very little effort going on to find him. His body was found , after so many weeks in a local river. He was a college student and evidently a good young man.
I saw an article the other day that said there are 65,000 missing women of color in the United States. Which sounds about right because their cases have gotten about 1/65,000th of the attention Gabby Petito has gotten.
