Where is Brian Laundrie now?

BRIAN Laundrie was named a person of interest in the case of Gabby Petito's disappearance and has yet to be located.

Brian, 23, is currently wanted by the FBI for fraudulent bank activity after he allegedly used Gabby's bank cards after her death.

Where is Brian Laundrie now?

The search for Laundrie is currently in its fifth week as authorities continue to track down leads and attempt to find the 23-year-old.

While authorities have yet to locate him, former US Marshal, Lenny DePaul, believes that he is "sleeping with one eye open" because "innocent people don’t run."

Authorities are currently continuing their investigation in the Appalachian Trail while many still believe that he build a doomsday bunker and is hiding out under his parents' flower bed.

On October 17, 2021, Severin Beckwith claims US Marshals ambushed him on the Appalachian Trail. He believed it happened due to his resemblance to Laundrie.

Despite countless leads, as of October 18, Brian still remains missing and if he is not found soon, cops may have to pull resources from the investigation.

However, on October 19, Brian's personal items were discovered near a trail in Myakkahatchee Creek Park, his lawyer confirmed. His parents came to the scene to help with the search, while the Sarasota County Medical Examiners Office were also summoned to the park, they told The Sun.

Earlier in the week, Laundrie's friend claimed he has the resources to get out of US illegally and told The Sun exclusively that he could be headed to a number of different countries.

"I think he'd be able to put the resources together to get out of the country, either illegally or under some sort of a fake identification,” the friend told The Sun.

“He's the type of person that would be able to drop everything to secure his means of not being captured and to evade arrest or evade prosecution from what seems to be a pending crime."

He later added that Laundrie could be headed to New Zealand or even South Africa.

On October 18, 2021, a Brian Laundrie lookalike was ambushed by authorities on the Appalachian trail.

Ithaca couple Severin Beckwith and Anna Brettmann were taking a post-nap lunch at the Lodge at Fontana Village Resort when the door was flung open by police, reported the New Yorker.

“Next thing I see is a bunch of guys with riot shields with ‘US Marshals’ written on them, handguns pointed at my face,” Beckwith told the outlet.

The couple had been hiking from Georgia to Virginia since late September.

Although one agent noted that Beckwith had a “notch in the upper part of my inner ear just like his,” he was cleared because he didn’t have Laundrie’s telltale tattoos.

What did Gabby's friend say about Brian?

In a TikTok video, Gabby's friend, Rose Davis, claims that she is scared Laundrie may "try to hurt" her if he is about to get captured by authorities soon.

In the video Davis said: "I don't have a fear that he'll come after me … but I do fear that if he's about to get caught … then maybe there's a possibility he'd try to hurt me."

She later added: "I just don't think he's that stupid."

Davis also went on to clear up some confusion about the condo that Gabby and Laundrie were living in before they embarked on their cross-country road trip but tried not to talk about him that much because she said if this goes to trial, "we need all our ducks in a line."

Did Dog the Bounty Hunter join the search for Brian Laundrie?

The search for Laundrie has grabbed national attention following Gabby's death and even celebrity bounty hunter Duane Chapman, who famously goes by Dog the Bounty Hunter, has joined in the case in hopes to find him by his 24th birthday in November.

Chapman's daughter is also on the case.

Despite being injured, Chapman is still on the case and revealed earlier this week that he plans on bringing him home alive.

"Turn yourself in, Brian. For once in your life, be a man," Chapman told The Sun.

The 68-year-old later claimed that Laundrie was "built to be a killer" because of the books that he read and the artwork he shared.

What was Gabby's cause of death?

On September 21, 2021, the Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue said Petito died as a result of a homicide.

Almost a month later, on Tuesday, October 12, strangulation was revealed to be the cause of death. Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue added that Gabby's predicted death was three to four weeks before her body was found.

Dr Blue also confirmed that Gabby was not pregnant but wasn't able to go into much detail because of state laws.
