Weeks after Brian Laundrie managed to evade arrest as the person of interest in the murder of vlogger girlfriend Gabby Petito, there has been a possible sighting of the 23-year-old in Peach Tree, Georgia. 

An image of a man who looks like Laundrie first emerged on Facebook before finding its way to Twitter. The photo, in which a bald man with a built like Petito's missing boyfriend was seen dressed in all black and carrying a backpack and wearing shades, was initially shared by FB user Jennifer Kahtz. The image was caught on her Facebook Live video. Sharing the screenshots, Kahtz wrote, "This guy came out of the woods which tells me he's not aware of golf cart trails or he's hiding. It's cloudy and he has sunglasses. He kept staring at me like he's on the run and he went around McDonald's back into the wooded area. Is this Brian Laundrie?"

Brian Laundrie's parents think he's STILL in Florida and hope he's found alive

'#BrianLaundrie a sighting in peach tree GA?'


Petito and Laundrie had embarked on a cross-country trip back in July and on September 1, he returned home without her in the van they had traveled in together during the trip. Laundrie has reportedly not been seen since September 14 and was confirmed 'missing' on September 17. This led police to search the nearby Carlton Reserve for Laundrie, but with zero luck so far. Since then, Gabby's body has been discovered in a Wyoming park by the authorities. Teton County Coroner Dr Brent Blue confirmed the vlogger's death was a homicide but the immediate cause of death is still unclear as police are still waiting for the final autopsy results.Reports of possible Laundrie sightings have been shared before including places like Florida, Alabama, Mexico, and Canada. People soon started sharing the screenshots on Twitter.

"Saw this posted on Facebook. Could this be #brianlaundrie in Peachtree City, GA? @BabyLyssaC," one of them wrote while another noted, "Found this on TT? #BrianLaundrie a sighting in peach tree GA?" A third commented, "Do you think it was Brian Laundrie or some other guy who looked like him who was actually going to California, GA which is 3 hours from where they were, or California, NC which is 7 hours away. #BrianLaundrie."




'That would put him on track to the Appalachian mountains'


While not everyone was convinced that the man in the photos was Laundrie, some were hopeful that it was him. "TherePeep the really hairy arms like in the body cam footage!!" one of them noted, while another wrote, "I have 2 locations I found from his and gabbies Instagram accounts that he could be headed towards, both just north of Atlanta. This could be the best sighting I've seen so far." The next quipped, "Lol, Every picture of 'Brian' is taken from a side-view and from far away. Never getting a good look at the face. Do these witnesses just take a picture and say 'ok time to go' and leave? Why does nobody follow him?!"

A commenter tweeted, "Also has a large back part of his head, like Brian did. Lots of bald men with beards, but Brian has a specific shape to his head, like in this photo." One more said, "His hair would have grown by now and he would keep it as a disguise. Plus I don’t think he’d appear where people could see him." Another noted, "That would put him on track to the Appalachian mountains. Assuming it’s him." A person reacted with, "Compare tattoos to the ones Brian has on his arm if you can zoom in. Then you’ll know." One user added, "He looks very tanned in that photo."
