The boyfriend of a missing woman whose disappearance has garnered national headlines is now missing himself, according to various reports.
North Port Police in Florida confirmed on social media they visited the home of Brian Laundrie on the evening of Sept. 17. Police have been asking for Laundrie to turn himself in so they can speak to him about his missing girlfriend, Gabby Petito.
Now, Laundrie’s attorney says Brian is missing, according to Fox13 Tampa Bay.
“The conversation at the Laundrie home is complete,” North Point Police Chief Todd Garrison posted on social media. “Once we have the details, a statement will be made. We ask for calm! Please let us work through this and information will be forthcoming.
Laundrie was considered a person of interest in the disappearance of Peittio.
Petito’s family said they were last in communication with Gabby in the last week of August, according to police. She was believed to have been in the area of Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
Petito and Laundrie were traveling in a white Ford Transit van with Florida plates on a cross-country trip when she disappeared.
Police say Laundrie returned to Florida on Sept. 1, 10 days before Petito was reported missing. On Sept. 11, Petito’s vehicle was found at her home.
The FBI is assisting Florida police in connection in Petito’s disappearance. Anyone who sees her, or knows her location, is asked to call (800) 225-5324.
Petito is 22 years old and 5-feet-5-inches tall. She weighs 110 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. She has several tattoos, including one on her forearm that reads “let it be.”
