Brian Laundrie: Police fly drone over Carlton Reserve as activity ramps up

Police have revealed that Brian Laundrie, the man who is a “person of interest” in the killing of Gabby Petito, was under surveillance before his parents reported him missing.

Brian Laundrie fled Florida with help, expert suggests

A former FBI agent has cast doubt over Brian Laundrie’s whereabouts and suggested that “it seems unlikely that he’s still in that reserve.”

Bryanna Fox — who also is an associate professor of criminology at the University of South Florida in Tampa — told NBC that the law enforcement “did not find any trace of him so far. It’s been weeks.”

Prof Fox suggested that Mr Laundrie, who is a person of interest in the Gabby Petito homicide case, may have had assistance from someone.

She said: “The idea that nothing has been said reinforces to me that he was likely getting help. Obviously, that person would have to be very loyal and very close to him, to not compromise his identity.”

Lawyer expresses hope over Laundrie manhunt

Steven Bertolino, the attorney representing Brian Laundrie’s parents, expressed hope that “Brian will be located soon.”

On Thursday — the day the fugitive’s father Christopher Laundrie joined law enforcement officials in the manhunt for his son in Carlton Reserve — the lawyer said: “There were no discoveries but the effort was helpful to all. It seems the water in the preserve is receding and certain areas are more accessible to search.”

He added: “The entire Laundrie family is grateful for the hard work of the dedicated members of law enforcement that have been searching the preserve for Brian over the last few weeks. Hopefully Brian will be located soon.”
