POLICE investigating the disappearance of Brian Laundrie have admitted they don't know if they can believe his family's timeline of events.

Officers are also raising doubts as to whether Gabby Petito's missing fiancé is still alive amid fears the case could turn cold.


Asked if he believed the Laudrie's chronology North Port police officer Josh Taylor said: "I don’t know necessarily what to believe anymore."

He told News Nation Now: "It’s certainly possible that they’re expressing what they know. But we’ll see.

"This is an ongoing investigation that will continue to evolve.

"I think you saw yesterday the [Laundrie] family was out there helping in the search, I think it’s a sign of them trying to work with investigators."

'NEED TO FIND SOMETHING'

Taylor said cops could be searching the Carlton Reserve "for a long, long time."

He added: "We need to find something. I think there’s so much attention on this. I don’t know that this case would ever get to be a cold case."

Brian's parents Chris and Roberta had reported their son missing on September 17 saying they had last seen him three days prior on September 14.

But in a shift they later told cops they had in fact last seen him a day earlier on September 13.

Laundrie lawyer Steven Bertolino told WFLA: "The Laundries were basing the date Brian left on their recollection of certain events.”

PERSON OF INTEREST

Gabby was reported missing by her family on September 11.

That came after she failed to return home to Florida with Brian from their cross country trip.

He is believed to have came back on September 1 without his fiancé.

Police are now hunting Brian, calling him a person of interest in Gabby's death.

The FBI issued a warrant for his arrest has since issued a warrant for his arrest after they say he "knowingly and with intent to defraud" used a bank card that was later revealed to be Petito's.

HUNT GOES ON

Detectives continue to scour the Carlton Reserve while Dog the Bounty Hunter investigates the Fort de Soto campground.

It’s reported that the Laundrie family stayed at the campsite on September 6 – days after he returned to the state.

There have also been a series of alleged sightings of Brian in parts of Florida, Mexico, Canada, and along the Appalachian Trail.

Most potential leads have led to dead ends.
