Brian Laundry, the boyfriend of Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old woman who went missing on a cross-country trip and who authorities say, is “consistent with the description” of a body discovered on Sunday in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, remains missing in southern Florida.
According to authorities, the search for Laundrie is focused in North Port, Florida, where he went back to his house on September 1 without Petito but in her 2012 Ford Transit.
Laundrie has been labelled a “person of interest” by cops in Petito’s disappearance. According to authorities, Laundrie has refused to speak with the cops and hasn’t been seen since Tuesday, September 14.
The search for Laundrie is the latest twist in the case that has grabbed national attention as he and Petito had been travelling across the country since June, documenting the trip on social media.
Her parents, who reside on Long Island, New York, reported her missing on September 11 after not hearing from her for two weeks.
