Brian Laundrie’s parents break cover as it’s revealed they changed Florida park booking to 3 people


Brian Laundrie’s father was spotted breaking cover from the family home Wednesday to pick up a Dunkin’ Donuts delivery and a bunch of flowers that were left on their doorstep in North Port, Florida, as the hunt for their fugitive son took a dramatic turn.

Photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com show Christopher Laundrie inching outside momentarily to collect the supplies before he ducked back inside the property that his family used to share with their son’s dead girlfriend Gabby Petito. 

Brian’s mother Roberta was also seen in the doorway helping her husband with the goods but stayed inside away from the crowd of protesters who continued to make their presence known to the couple.

It is not clear who sent the Laundries the bunch of flowers but dozens of bunches have been left at a makeshift memorial to Gabby on their lawn as questions continue to mount over the whereabouts of Brian and what his parents know.  

New details have emerged about a camping trip that Brian took with his parents days before Petito was reported missing and around one week before he went on the run. 

Documents obtained by Fox News reveal Brian’s mom changed her reservation for the campsite to three people from September 6 to September 8 after Brian returned home early from his and Gabby’s campervan trip early and alone.

The FBI is now examining surveillance footage from the Fort De Soto Park campsite where the family’s attorney admitted the trio visited and Dog the Bounty Hunter believes Brian could be hiding out. 

Federal investigators are also following a lead that Brian bought a burner phone from an AT&T store in North Port on the day he went missing in an outing where he was joined by ‘an older woman’.

Brian was named a person of interest in the homicide of his fiance Petito and a warrant is out for his arrest for allegedly fraudulently spending $1,000 on Petito’s Capitol One Bank debit card between August 30 and September 1. 

The young couple set off on a cross-country trip in their campervan back on July 2 and were documenting their travels on YouTube. 

Petito was last seen alive on August 24 leaving a motel in Salt Lake City, Utah, with Laundrie and last spoke to her mom by phone the following day. Her family said they believe texts from her phone after then were ‘suspicious.’

Brian returned to his home in North Port alone on September 1 driving the couple’s campervan.

Petito was reported missing on September 11 by her family and her body was discovered in a campsite near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on September 19. 

Her death has been ruled a homicide but the cause of death is not yet clear.  

Brian refused to speak to authorities during a week-long search for his missing girlfriend. On September 17, his parents told police they hadn’t seen him in three days when he headed for a hike at the nearby Carlton Reserve. 

As the manhunt for Brian continues, new details have emerge about his whereabouts between September 1 – the day he returned to Florida without Petito – and September 14 – the day his parents claim they last saw him.

Documents from the Fort De Soto Park reveal Brian’s mom Roberta made a booking on August 24 for two people to stay at the campsite from September 1 to 3, Fox reported.

But on August 31 – the day before Brian returned home – Roberta canceled the reservation. 

Brian and Petito were not expected to be back in Florida until October after setting out on the four month-long trip on July 2.   

On September 3, seven days before Petito was reported missing, Roberta made a new reservation for three people at the same park for the weekend running September 6 through September 8. 

A source who used to work at Civic Plus which manages the campground’s reservation system told Fox they believe this indicates the Laundries knew Brian was heading home on August 31 and then made new plans to include him in a trip.   

Other documents from the park, which is about 75 miles north of the family’s home, show the Laundries did check in and out of the campsite on the dates booked.

Brian visited the park with Petito just two months ago with photos showing the young couple at the beach and campsite. 

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office told Fox Wednesday that the FBI is now examining surveillance footage from the area around the campsite as part of the search for Laundrie.  

A spokesperson said the footage was being looked at as part of ‘the open and active investigation’ led by the FBI’s Denver field office. 

‘The surveillance footage is part of that and that’s why it is not being released,’ they said.  

A couple who stayed at the campsite at the same time recalled seeing a red truck with a camper similar to the one now seen parked in the Laundries’ driveway.

Marcie and Kenny Newson said they could not confirm physically seeing Laundrie but a selfie from their trip appears to show him walking across the campsite.

‘They kept to themselves. They were there and then they weren’t’, they told NBC 2 . 

Another camper whose name appeared on the ledger was celebrating his anniversary with his wife three spots down from the Laundries.

An extensive search for Laundrie has been underway since his parents reported him missing on September 17 - two days after he was named a person of interest in the homicide of Petito, whose remains were found on September 19

Thomas Rutherford told Fox News that he could ‘vaguely remember’ spotting the Laundries’ vehicle, which they noted due to the novelty of seeing a camper attached to a vehicle.      

Dog the Bounty Hunter, who announced he was launching a search for Laundrie at the weekend, has focused his attentions on the coastline and creeks surrounding the park. 

He recovered a can of Monster energy drink which appeared to have been freshly drunk at a makeshift campsite deep in the woods at Shell Island along the coastline Wednesday, Fox reported.   

The TV reality star was searching by boats and with K9 units in the area Wednesday. 

A spokesperson for him said he has been ‘working on very strong leads’ and that it ‘could very well be the last day of the hunt to apprehend Brian Laundrie’.  

Dog said Monday night that Laundrie’s parents spent the night in the campsite from September 1 to 3, staying in spot number 1.

They returned again with Brian to stay on spot 15 from September 6 to 8, and left without him, Dog claimed.

Records did not show the Laundrie family staying at the park from September 1 to 3.

Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, (pictured at the weekend outside the Laundrie house in North Port, Florida) said on Monday that he had located a campsite where the Laundrie family stayed in September and where he believes Brian Laundrie is hiding out

The Laundries’ attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed all three Laundrie family members went camping at the park from September 6, leaving together the next day – September 7.

‘They all left the park,’ Bertolino said, according to Fox 13. 

Bertolino gave the confirmation after initially saying of Dog’s allegations: ‘I will no longer give that dog credibility or dignify his false claims with the time of my reply.’  

If Dog’s claims that the Brian’s parents left without him are accurate, Brian could have had a nine-day head-start on law enforcement before Christopher and Roberta told police he had vanished.  

This would also mean that the Laundries hid from authorities for almost a week that he was not at the family home as cops were denied access to enter the property due to Brian’s first amendment rights.   

The FBI is also investigating a line of inquiry that Brian bought a burner from an AT&T store in North Port on September 14 – the day his parents claim they last saw him.

Brian is said to have visited the store to purchase the phone accompanied by an older woman.  

Federal agents have seized surveillance footage from the store.

The North Port AT&T store declined to comment on whether Laundrie and Roberta visited the establishment, telling DailyMail.com: ‘We are not confirming or denying anything and we are not making any statements.’ 

No further details about the woman have been revealed but it comes as speculation has been mounting that Brian’s mom has also been using a burner phone. 

Reporters in Tampa approached the FBI after internet sleuths showed screen grabs of Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter Lyssa Chapman appearing to confirm the FBI believe Roberta Laundrie is using a burner phone.

It has not been suggested that she is using the burner phone to communicate with her son.

‘We do not confirm or deny contact with any individual or entity in order to preserve their privacy, as such, we do not confirm or deny the receipt of any tip. We have no additional comment,’ the FBI said, according to 10 Tampa Bay reporter Shannon Clowe

Lyssa Chapman tweeted that the FBI confirmed the accusations that Roberta is in possession of a burner phone but did not present any evidence of the confirmation. 

The Laundrie family attorney said he had ‘no comment’ about her alleged use of a burner phone but told TMZ the family purchased a new phone but he ‘believes it’s the one Brian left behind at home’ and notes that the ‘FBI is already in possession of it’.  

Bertolino’s comment echoes a previous statement he made to Insider, stating that investigators were in possession of the device. 

The lawyer claims the 23-year-old left his wallet and cell phone at his family’s home before leaving the residence on September 14. The whereabouts of Petito’s phone remain unknown.  

Internet sleuths have claimed that Brian is using a burner phone after allegedly noticing changes to his Instagram and Spotify accounts since he disappeared two weeks ago.  

His Instagram account reportedly went live for three seconds on Monday showing waves and just a peak of an olive green boat, according to Inside Edition. 

The account also reportedly unfollowed several people. 

There have also been claims online that Brian’s Spotify playlist name changed from ‘Selfconsomption’ to ‘Nomatic Statik.’ The playlist was reportedly created after Petito’s disappearance.
