Boyfriend's attorney:

"Be advised, the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown. The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now, the FBI is looking for both Gabby and Brian."

Boyfriend's attorney said Laundrie's parents last saw him Tuesday morning

Ugh. Lately I binge watch #vanlife videos. I saw her’s. I didn’t realize she was the same girl missing.

Her friend in Florida said Brian Laundrie was schizophrenic. No good ending to finding her can be expected.
Was this an official diagnosis or just the friend using the term “schizophrenic” as a derogatory statement?

I read that she said she had obsessive compulsive disorder and she said that sparked the argument between them.

They lived in North Port FL near Port Charlotte. His family is there. We get stuff on the news every day here in SW Florida.

She reported that he was hearing voices and he could not sleep when it happened and Gabby would spend nights at her friend's home. Nothing derogatory. Tragically, I know schizoprenia much too well.

So now he is ‘missing’. The family did not report it for days. How did he get to the nature preserve to go hiking? Walk, drive, or dropped off?

Near the sea.

There are nature areas all thru North Port. Easy to get to on foot or bike.

Body found where Gabby Petito search is underway in Wyoming, no confirmation of identity
Investigators on Saturday continued the national search for missing woman Gabby Petito a week after she was first reported missing. The search for her fiancé Brian Laundrie, who is a person of interest in the case, has ramped up since police officers went to his Florida home Friday expecting to speak to him and were told by his parents they hadn't heard from him since Tuesday.

FBI is all but confirming it's Gabby.

I'd make a small wager that Brian will be found in the same condition as Gabby. Shame. :cry:

I just hope he left a note or told someone his version of what happened

I would bet that his family helped him get away and he's on a beach in Mexico
Doubtful. I would think if he used any type of federal transportation they would know that already and wouldn't be searching through the nature preserve.

Hopefully we don't have the same conspiracy clowns thinking that he had nothing to do with it. But I'm not holding my breath.

According to friends of the family up here, she was manic and they have fought many times before where she attacked him. The bf would continually leave her then come back.

what we saw from the body cam of the police is a manic girl suffering from one of her episodes. He had cuts on his face and he even said he locked her out of the car so he wouldn’t get hit again. Something tells me her death was either accidental by the bf in self defense or of her own doing and he freaked out thinking he would be blamed and ran home and got a lawyer. Or he murdered her.

... or he locked her out of the van, drove off and left her to die.

That too. Or he locked her out of the van and left her to find her way home after they fought where she hit him. If that’s the case. He’s the victim. If he was hitting her and she locked him out of the van and drove back to NY to her parents, everyone would applaud her for having the courage to leave him. Men can be victims as well. Let’s wait to see if we ever get the truth. It’s a sad situation regardless
