Hours after missing YouTuber Gabby Petito's remains were presumably found in a Wyoming national park, police reportedly swarmed her boyfriend Brian Laundrie's home which was declared a "crime scene" on Monday morning, September 20, and removed his parents from the residence. Police considered Brian Laundrie “a person of interest”. He refused to speak to police and went missing a few days later. Last week, Brian Laundrie's parents reported him as missing.

Gabby Petito went missing while on a trip with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie and her whereabouts remained unknown until her body was found on September 19. Soon after her remains were discovered, a Twitter user shared a screenshot of Brian Laundrie’s Instagram account statistics on September 20, Monday, revealing how many followers he had gained, and how many he had unfollowed or followed. According to the numbers, his 'following' number had decreased, suggesting that he might have been unfollowing people on Instagram. The Internet now believes that Laundrie, although 'missing', has been active on social media.

However, Laundrie's 'following' number could have gone down if people removed Laundrie as a follower, or blocked him.

Sharing the images on Twitter, one user wrote: "OH MY GOD. IT HAS TO BE HIM. HE’S IN BAKER, FLORIDA." ""Same backpack from this van pic. Same baggy grey shirt and black pants from the neighbors street walking pic," another user tweeted.
