On Thursday afternoon, the FBI resumed its search for Brian Laundrie by returning to his family’s house in North Port, Florida.
The two FBI agents drove up in a black SUV and deposited a large brown paper bag inside the house. As they left, they did not take the same bag. There was also a camper van on the property, which one agent briefly explored.
According t him, the FBI has already arrived to the Laundrie residence to retrieve some of Brian’s belongings in order to help the canines in their search for him. As the saying goes, “This is where it ends.”
Gabby Petitos Parents Informed Police that they Last Saw Him on September 14
Authorities are paying a visit to Laundrie’s house after weeks of searching for him without success. His parents informed police that they last saw him on September 14 when he left to visit a local nature reserve. His fiancee Gabby Petito vanished at the end of last month and was discovered dead in Wyoming, not far from where the two were last seen together.
“The Laundry’s could not assist us in identifying Gabby,” the family’s attorney Richard Stafford said. They won’t help us find Brian, so we shouldn’t expect their help.
Stafford stated that the FBI had asked that they not discuss the family ties, and that he had faith in the FBI’s capacity to conduct a thorough investigation and secure justice for Petito.
The Creation of the Gabby Petito Foundation to Help Other Families
Gabby Petito’s parents and stepparents have announced the creation of the Gabby Petito Foundation to help other families. Moreover, they revealed that on Monday night they got matching tattoos that read “Let it be” in her handwriting.
Meanwhile, Laundrie’s parents have told their attorney that two weeks have passed since he was last seen and they still have no idea where he is.
Petito’s disappearance has sparked speculation about the couple’s relationship and led digital sleuths to investigate their online activity in search of clues. Petito’s story has drawn attention to the tens of thousands of unsolved disappearances in the United States, raising the question of why some cases receive so much media coverage while others do not.
“Officer Daniel Robbins, who arrived shortly after, reported that Petito had “gone into a manic state” when Laundrie attempted to “part from her so they could both calm their emotions.” The police officer stated that he noticed “little apparent scratches” on Laundrie’s face.
While speaking to his fellow officers, Officer Petito can be heard saying, “We’ve just been battling this morning—going through some personal troubles.”
There were no charges filed since the police had reportedly suggested the pair go their separate ways.
The Coloradoan quotes Moab’s assistant police chief Braydon Palmer as saying on August 12: “We’re going to need an outside agency to undertake this investigation.” Palmer did not identify the organisation responsible for this.
