Police searching 'vast' preserve for Brian Laundrie, boyfriend of missing 22-year-old Gabby PetitoA police search is underway in a 'vast' Florida preserve after the family of Brian Laundrie, the boyfriend of 22-year-old Gabby Petito, who went missing while the couple was on a cross-country trip, said his whereabouts are now unknown, too. 'Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,' an attorney for the family said Friday. Laundrie has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family's lawyer. Both dead I think They should charge everyone in his family with aiding and abetting is he's found to be guilty of murdering that young women. Can't believe they didn't have surveillance 24-7 on him. Terrible policing. She probably committed suicide and framed him.

Gabby Petito video shows Brian Laundrie reading book 'Annihilation,' in which women go missingSome internet sleuths call the footage 'disturbing' while others dismiss the idea of any connection to Petito going missing. Sounds like they found her body. Now they need to find his. If she committed suicide her boyfriend would have contacted police right away. He most likely killed her and then killed himself. So tragic the police didn’t do something more when they pulled them over. Unless a meteor strike is turning the Grand Tetons into an alien hellscape, I don't think this information is relevant.
