Police Can’t Find Brian Laundrie, POI in Gabby Petito Case

It has been noted that Brian Laundrie has gone missing as well. He is NOT a suspect in the case. However, he is a person of interest. Police are looking for him after he went missing in Florida after arriving back home on September 1. Since then, there has been little seen of Laundrie.

One clue so far has been a trail cam located in the Florida wilderness. Law enforcement has followed up on the potential sighting. Despite the trail cam, police still have not been able to locate Laundrie. His family had canceled a press conference they scheduled for earlier in the day.

Currently, the Gabby Petito family is waiting. They are still waiting on the cause of death to be confirmed. Also, they are waiting to see what Laundrie is going to do. In the last two days, the family has been largely silent. They did have an interview with Dr. Phil air on television. However, that was recorded before Petito’s remains had been recovered.
