Brian Laundrie NEVER parked Mustang at Carlton Reserve, left it 17 miles away: Report
A recent report has stated that Brian Laundrie’s grey Ford Mustang was never parked at Carlton Reserve, as opposed to his parents’ claim, who earlier said that they drove back the car from the place after their son left it in the parking area on September 14. An abandoned vehicle report created on September 14 has claimed that the vehicle was actually abandoned at 6968 Reisterstown Road in the Myakkahatchee Environmental Park in Florida, which is 17 miles away from the reserve.
The Laundries had earlier claimed that the 23-year-old left their home on September 14 as he went for a hike, but now their lawyer — Steve Bertolino — is saying that parents mentioned the wrong date by mistake. The family is now saying that Brian left the home for Carlton Reserve on September 13. Bertolino said, “The Laundries were basing the date Brian left on their recollection of certain events. After consulting with the FBI and confirming the day Brian’s Mustang was found and returned to the Laundries’ home, we now believe the day Brian left to hike in the preserve was Monday, September 13.”

Earlier, parents of Brian had said that they drove back the Ford Mustang after their son parked it at the Carlton Reserve in Florida. They took the car and left for home after police left a note on it.
The North Port native was reported missing by his family on September 17, two days before his girlfriend Gabby Petito’s remains were found in a remote area at the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. On September 21, the official identification of the body was done and in a statement, the Denver office of the FBI said: “Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue confirmed the remains are those of Gabrielle Venora Petito, date of birth March 19, 1999. Coroner Blue’s initial determination for the manner of death is homicide. The cause of death remains pending final autopsy results.”
Brian and Gabby were on a cross-country trip in a converted van before things started getting worse. While the young woman ended up dead, her boyfriend disappeared after coming back home alone from the trip for a few days. Now, Brian, who is also a person of interest in Gabby’s case, is wanted on a felony warrant. He apparently used a debit card believed to be of the 22-year-old Long Island native woman. The arrest warrant states that he used the card “on or about August 30, 2021, through and including on or about September 1, 2021” in Wyoming and elsewhere and “obtained things of value aggregating to $1,000 or more.”
