Brian Laundrie is the 23-year-old boyfriend of missing 22-year-old Instagram star Gabby Petito.
The couple was on a road trip that started back in July. They were driving in a “camping van” from New York to Portland and documenting their “picture perfect” journey on Youtube and Instagram.
Problem was, it wasn’t “perfect” at all…
Things went haywire when Gabby went missing on or around August 25th, and Brian returned home to Florida in the couple’s “camping van” without Gabby, and refused to speak to police.
Since then, Brian was named a “person of interest” by the police, and a TikTok user named Miranda has come forward and said that she and her boyfriend encountered Brian in one of the last known places where Gabby was thought to be before she went missing.
And last night things took another bizarre turn when Brian Laundrie went into hiding. His lawyer has advised that he doesn’t know where his client is.
Daily Mail reported that the mom of missing ‘van-life girl’ Gabby Petito has slammed her boyfriend Brian Laundrie saying ‘he’s not missing, he’s hiding’ after his attorney said the man now named a person of interest in her daughter’s disappearance hasn’t been seen since Tuesday.
Petito’s mom Nichole Schmidt reacted angrily to the news that Laundrie had vanished and suggested he is on the run, following a fraught week where she has issued several public pleas asking him and his family to cooperate with investigators.
“He’s not missing, he’s hiding! Gaby is missing!”

As the FBI and police now look for both Brian and Gabby, her best friend has come forward and share the very dark side of who Brian Laundrie really is.
Daily Mail also reported that according to Petito’s best friend, while Laundrie presents himself as a sweet and caring guy, he is actually jealous and controlling.
Rose Davis said Laundrie allegedly went so far as to hide Gabby’s ID once so that she couldn’t meet up with her at a bar, trigging a violent episode similar to the one police investigated weeks before her disappearance.
‘Brian took her ID just so she wouldn’t be able to come out with me,’ she told DailyMail.com on Friday.
‘He’s got these jealousy issues and he struggles from what Gabby called these ‘episodes,’ where he would hear things and hear voices and wouldn’t sleep.
‘Gabby had to stay at my house a bunch of times because she just needed a breather and didn’t want to go home to him.’
This guy sounds like a controlling psycho with mental illness, to boot.
Gabby also appears to have some mental struggles. She told police in UT that she was suffering from “anxiety” and OCD.
The combo of these two personalities, cooped up in a tiny van for months was likely a toxic cocktail doomed for some kind of failure.
But regardless, Gabby doesn’t deserve what has likely happened to her.
She was obviously close to her family, if she was able to, she would have called them by now if she had walked away on her own accord.
