As Brian Laundrie, the boyfriend of missing travel vlogger Gabby Petito continues to stay mum about the whereabouts of his girlfriend, cooped up at his parents' house, and refusing to cooperate with investigators, his neighbors are upping the pressure on him by asking the ultimate question via a stop sign, “Where is she?”

Petito and Laundrie went on a cross-country road trip together in a van in July but only Laundrie has returned and the mysterious disappearance of Petito has gained national interest. The 22-year-old was last heard from in late August and reported missing by her family in New York on Sept. 11. North Port police said Laundrie returned home without Petito on Sept. 1 and has since lawyered up, refused to cooperate with authorities.

'Where is she?'

This has led angry neighbors to rally behind the Petito family and they even set up a truck stop sign with the question, "Where is she?" near the neighborhood of Laundrie, who is currently in North Port with his family. The sign went up on Thursday, September 16, and has since been removed.

"We’re standing up for somebody who’s lost that's in our city, and we’re a big family in our city, in North Port. And we are definitely going to do whatever we can to help the family find this missing daughter," one protester told the conservative news network on Thursday. "We all have children. If it were our child, we would want everyone to gather up and help us find our child too. So we’re going to do whatever it takes." The report also said that another protest is being planned at the home, which belongs to Laundrie's parents. This protest is scheduled to take place on Friday evening, September 17. 

Gabby Petito's father makes emotional plea for daughter's safe return

The North Port police named Laundrie as a “person of interest” in her disappearance on Wednesday. “Two people went on a trip and one person returned and that person who returned isn’t providing us any information,” said North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison during Thursday’s news conference. Garrison said they have not taken him into custody. “My focus isn’t to bring Brian in right now, it’s to find Gabby,” the police chief said. “Brian is exercising his constitutional rights, and I have to respect that.”



 

 

Joseph Petito, the father of Gabrielle Petito, spoke alongside North Port’s police chief as he called on help from Brian Laundrie's friends and family as well as anyone else who might have information about her daughter's disappearance. “What I need from everyone here is help,” Petito’s father said during a news conference Thursday afternoon. “The goal is to bring Gabby home safely. I’m asking for help from everyone here. I’m asking for help from everyone at home ... Whatever you can do to make sure my daughter can come home, I’m asking for that help.”

“As a father, I can imagine the pain and suffering Gabby’s family is going through,” Garrison said in the post. “We are pleading with anyone, including Brian, to share information with us on her whereabouts in the past few weeks. The lack of information from Brian is hindering this investigation. The answers will eventually come out. We will help find Gabby and we will help find anyone who may be involved in her disappearance.”
