Laundrie was last seen on September 14 entering the Carlton Reserve in Florida, where he allegedly went for a hike. The 23-year old remains a person of interest in the death of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito, whose body was found in a Wyoming national forest.
The hunt for clues as to the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie took a turn for the bizarre after several internet sleuths peddled a conspiracy theory indicating that he could be hiding beneath a flower bed in his parents' backyard in Florida.
Drone footage that has been widely shared online allegedly captured Chris and Roberta Laundrie, the 23-year-old fugitive’s parents, gardening and tending to an empty flower bed.
After the video was quickly removed, some began to claim that Laundrie could be hiding in a bunker under the flower bed nearly three weeks on from his last known sighting.
One TikTok user, charlienovasite, posted a video in TikTok where she showed her viewers slow motion and zoomed-in portions of drone footage, saying: “There is definitely someone there. You cannot change my mind.”
While a reality TV star is one of several on the trail of the 23-year-old, a former FBI agent has reportedly warned that Laundrie may have already left the state.
