A lookalike of Brian Laundrie has created a TikTok account, asking users to help him with "any tips on how to best express" that he is not the man the FBI is looking for. @notbrianlaundrie has taken to the social media platform to share a number of clips after a viral video claimed that Laundrie has been found. The user shared a video of an alleged 'Brian sighting' in a club, saying, "I would just like to put all of these rumors to bed." He then asks, "Quick request from everyone...any advice on what I should say to people who think that I am Brian Laundrie? Really appreciate it."

The man shares similar physical features with Brian Laundrie -- similar hair, beard and frame. Laundrie's parents reported him missing on September 17, days after Gabby Petito disappeared. The user said in a follow-up post, "I’m not Brian Laundrie," urging followers to help him fly "across the county", and give him tips on how to "not get attacked or accused."

This is not the only 'Brian sighting' the Internet has come up with. A number of people have claimed to have seen the fugitive, with tips coming even from Mexico, Canada and Bahamas. Sharing a picture, a user on Twitter wrote, "Anyone have any new info on this #BrianLaundrie sighting near Green Cove Springs, Fl? The lady who took this photo said he ran to the woods as a police car drive by, then didn’t come out for 7 minutes. Then walked along the wooded tree line holding his arm up to block his face." "This is the ONLYYY #BrianLaundrie sighting so far that I’ve thought even REMOTELY looks like him. I put them side by side. This was taken in Mexico. Look at the ears. Look at the foreheads. Curved and then FLAT. The forehead rlly matches to me. Remember angles are different, too," another user wrote, sharing a different picture.



 



 

"A possible sighting of Brian Laundrie in Mexico as of yesterday," a Twitter page created to discuss the Gabby Petito-Brian Laundrie case shared. "Possible sighting of #BrianLaundrie by flight attendant in Toronto," wrote a user, while another wrote "Trail cam photo of possible #BrianLaundrie sighting in Northwest Florida compared to backpack seen in Gabby’s van."
