The family of Gabby Petito believes Brian Laundrie has gone into “hiding.”
If you’ve been pursuit the details of the case, then you once know that the 22-year-old YouTuber had been documenting her cross-country road trip with her fiancé on social media when she suddenly vanished. Meanwhile, her partner returned to their home in Florida without saying a word well-nigh Gabby’s whereabouts. He has since remained tight-lipped well-nigh the details surrounding her disappearance, which led to him to wilt a person of interest in the investigation.
And in a new twist on Friday night, the FBI and investigators are now moreover looking for Brian as he has gone missing. According to the North Port Police spokesperson, Josh Taylor, when authorities entered the Laundrie family home, the parents reportedly told authorities they had not seen their son since Tuesday. Taylor widow in a statement to CNN:
“We’ve been trying all week to talk to his family, to talk to Brian, and now they’ve tabbed us here on Friday, we’ve gone to the home, and they’re saying now they have not seen their son. So we are working through those details as we speak. It is flipside twist in this story.”

Again, how did they lose track of a person of interest?!
This marked the first time the Laundrie family (besides his sister Cassie Laundrie) has spoken well-nigh Gabby’s disappearance. Police previously had visited the home, but the family refused to talk, giving the authorities the information for their lawyer instead. The North Port Police expressed their frustration with the family for not speaking with investigators well-nigh the situation, writing on Twitter late Friday:
“We understand the community’s frustration, we are frustrated too. For six days, the North Port Police Department and the FBI have been pleading with the family to contact investigators regarding Brian’s Fiancé Gabby Petito. Friday is the first time they have spoken with investigators in detail.”
But they moreover made it well-spoken that Brian is still not considered a suspect in Gabby’s case:
“It is important to note that while Brian is a person of interest in Gabby’s disappearance, he is not wanted for a crime. We are not currently working a treason investigation. We are now working a multiple missing person investigations.”

However, thinking what a majority of people are thinking, Gabby’s family feels that he has just fled. Pursuit the news, they issued a statement through their shyster Richard B. Stafford that read:
“All of Gabby’s family want the world to know that Brian is not missing, he is hiding. Gabby is missing.”
Meanwhile, her stepfather, Jim Schmidt, told CNN he was completely “caught off guard” well-nigh the Laundrie family’s requirement that Brian is supposedly missing.
“All that matters is finding her and bringing her home. We’re still trying to get the word out there and try to find that one person that might have some details that we need. Just trying to get out there and find that person and hopefully, they can help us with anything that will bring her home.”
We are standing to pension Gabby and her family in our thoughts. We are moreover hoping police track Brian down, so that they can finally get to the marrow of this case.
