The Laundrie family attorney, Steven Bertolino, confirmed the FBI is currently in possession of Brian's phone as the whereabouts of Gabby's mobile remains a mystery.

He has "no known means of communication," insisted Bertolino. On Tuesday, Brian's mother, Roberta, was accused of using a burner phone to secretly communicate with her fugitive son.

The FBI has issued an arrest warrant for Brian after discovering he used an "unauthorized Capital One Bank card between August 30 and September 1, pulling out more than $1,000."

Brian and Gabby were on a cross-country trip to Wyoming when he returned to his parents' Florida home on September 1 without her.

Gabby's family reported her missing 10 days later. Brian's parents revealed he disappeared on September 14 after allegedly going on a solo hike at the Carlton Reserve.

A manhunt immediately went underway with detectives scouring the reserve, a place where locals say Brian has no change of surviving in — if he's even there.

Dog The Bounty Hunter joined the search team over the weekend but was not welcomed with open arms. Brian's mother, Roberta, called 911 on the professional fugitive finder, despite his goal of finding her son alive.

Dog dropped shocking news when he claimed Brian was caught on camera entering Fort De Soto Campground in Florida with his family, days before Gabby was reported missing.

Here's the kicker — Dog says only two people were seen exiting the campground.

Dog has shifted the search to the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina after several reported spotting Brian in the area. According to Gabby's best friend, this is a red flag because he survived in the Appalachians for three months on his own before.

Gabby's body was discovered in Wyoming on September 19. She was only 22 years old.
