Florida police search for boyfriend of missing woman Gabby Petito
Police are searching for the boyfriend of a woman who went missing while they were on a road trip in the US.
Officers in Florida said they were working with the FBI to locate 23-year-old Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the disappearance of his girlfriend, Gabrielle “Gabby” Petito.
North Port police said Laundrie’s family had told officers they had not seen him since Tuesday. Police said the conversation on Friday evening was the first time they had spoken with Laundrie’s family in detail about the case, and that the meeting came at the family’s request.
An attorney for the family called FBI investigators and said they wanted to talk about Laundrie’s disappearance, police said.
A lawyer for Ms Petito’s family said: “All of Gabby’s family want the world to know that Brian is not missing, he is hiding. Gabby is missing.”
