Brian Laundrie may not be far from home, at least according to one Florida man who says he might have caught the fugitive on camera.
A homeowner in Dunnellon, FL, passed off the surveillance video to the FBI. The footage was taken from the outskirts of his property and captured a person matching Brian's description riding an old bike down a rural dirt road.
In the video, a man wearing a dark-colored sweater, a loose pair of pants, and a baseball cap can be seen struggling to pedal what appears to be a damaged bicycle in the middle of nowhere.
The person appeared to have facial hair resembling Brian's and is carrying a large backpack.
As he comes down the dirt road, he's seen pedaling the bike out of control. Swerving all over the rural path, the man on tape seems to get frustrated enough to jump off the bicycle and walk out of frame.
The video was captured on October 9, more than three weeks after Brian's parents — Christopher and Roberta Laundrie — reported their son missing.
The FBI and local law enforcement have been primarily searching for the 23-year-old in the Carlton Reserve, which is where he allegedly told his mom and dad he was going for a solo hike on September 13. He never returned home.
Dunnellon is less than three hours away from the Laundrie's North Port, FL, residence. According to the man who captured the bike video, he passed the clip onto the FBI.
Brian is considered a person of interest in his fiancée Gabby Petito's disappearance-turned-homicide.
The engaged couple was on a cross-country road trip to Wyoming when Brian returned to his parents' FL home in their van without her on September 1.
Gabby's parents reported her missing on September 11 after many alleged failed attempts to get answers from Brian and his parents.
Her body was found in Wyoming on September 19 near a campground that she and Brian reportedly visited. The coroner declared Gabby's death a homicide and later confirmed she was manually strangled.
The FBI has been following every lead they can. So far, each one has turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.
