Gabby Petito's boyfriend Brian Laundrie, who is the person of interest in the missing vlogger case, has disappeared from his home, and how the police are trying to find him. And people on social media are speculating whether Laundrie might take his own life while on the run. 

Petito and Laundrie had set out on a 'van life' adventure earlier in the summer, documenting their tour of national parks on Petito's new YouTube channel and Instagram. Laundrie, 23, returned to his parent's home in North Port, Florida on September 1 with the van but without Petito. Petito’s family reported her missing on September 11 after losing contact with her for several days. Laundrie has since lawyered up, refused to cooperate with investigators and has been branded "person of interest" in Petito's disappearance. And now, he has gone missing too.

Laundrie's lawyer confirmed that his whereabouts are "currently unknown", and that he was last seen on September 12 morning. The development has not gone unnoticed, with the FBI now also hunting for Laundrie, police confirmed. Meanwhile, Petito's mother has slammed Laundrie, saying, "He's hiding."

The North Port police tweeted on late Friday that the Laundrie family had requested a meet with cops and they were talking to them but not Brian. A few hours later, the police put up a missing bulletin on their Twitter page, asking for the community's help to locate 23-year-old Brian. He was described as a white male, weighing 5'8 160lbs. He is said to have brown eyes and short brown hair, trimmed facial hair. He was last seen wearing a hiking bag with a waist strap. 



'It is looking a lot like murder-suicide'

Although the police never indicated that Laundrie had any intention of taking his own life or has displayed suicidal tendencies, social media could not help but speculate. "It is telling that Brian Laundrie’s parents KNEW she was missing. They hid him, let him escape and ignored Gabby’s family’s requests. Now there’s a great possibility that he will commit suicide and they won’t find her. Protect your kids but at what cost? THEY KNOW. #gabbypetitio," one of them said, while another wrote, "It is looking a lot like murder-suicide now. The poor woman. My guess is that she wanted to leave and he wouldn't let her." A third commented, "My theory: Brian Laundrie not only killed Gabby, he also killed the 2 girls from Utah (yeah they say they’re not connected, but I ain’t buying it). I’m also afraid he is going to commit suicide, so we will never have answers I’m so worked up over this" One more quipped, "I hope Brian didn’t go missing to go and commit suicide. He needs to reveal where gabby is .#brianlaudrie."


The next remarked, "Brian Laundrie is missing or escaped some fear he may commit suicide without telling what happened to Gabby one apparent correct comment is this kid has mental issues yet is always one step of the police, the saga continues no psychiatric help on scene. No satellite tracking." One more wrote, "I just want to freeze time and find Brian Laundrie before he commits suicide and interrogate him about Gabby. #FindGabby #GabbyPetito." Another added, "My gut tells me that brian laundrie ran away to commit suicide because he is guilty as fuck of something i hope he is found before that happens so Gabby’s family can know what happened/where their daughter is what a fucking coward." A commenter tweeted, "According to rumors, the only declaration that the boyfriend made so far is that; if he die, it's not gonna be from an overdose or because he committed suicide."
