As you have likely heard by now, the remains of Gabby Petito were found earlier today, which makes followers of the case speculate that her fiance’ Brian Laundrie who is also missing, may be the prime suspect in Petito’s murder.
Laundrie lives in North Port, FL and local authorities have been scouring the area all weekend long trying to locate him.
“A team of more than 50 looking for anything of note after his (Laundrie’s) parents say this is where he went,” North Port police said in a post on Twitter Sunday morning.
We do know that Laundrie returned to his home in North Port, FL two weeks ago and that he also refused to speak to police about Gabby’s whereabouts. Laundrie was last seen this past Tuesday. The couple was traveling across the country and Petito came home in Gabby’s vehicle, but without her. The family officially reported Gabby as missing on September 11th.
“Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” an attorney for the Laundrie family said Friday. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now, the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian.”
Police have been searching a 24,565-acre preserve in Florida due to the fact that Laundrie told his family he would be going on a hike there. The family indicated he left the home with a backpack.
