Brian Laundrie’s parents were reportedly seen leaving their Florida home on Thursday as reporters asked them about their son’s whereabouts along with questions about Gabrielle Petito.
According to the New York Post, Christopher and Roberta Laundrie ignored questions from reporters as they left their North Port home. Christopher was heard telling reporters, “Go” and that he was “going to go that way” before getting into his truck with his wife and driving off.
On Sunday, the body of Petito, who is Brian Laundrie’s girlfriend, was discovered at the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. An autopsy that was conducted on Tuesday determined her preliminary manner of death was a homicide.

Brian Laundrie has been unaccounted for since leaving his parents’ home on September 14. His parents told police that he went to the Carlton Reserve, a 24,000-acre preserve in Sarasota County, Florida; they waited three days to tell investigators that he had not returned home.
On Thursday, police’s search for Brian Laundrie at the nature preserve entered its fifth day. While he is considered a person of interest in this case, he has not been criminally charged in connection with Petito’s death.
