Brian Laundrie has allegedly been seen 12 times in North Carolina since Thursday.
The Haywood County Sheriff's Office has received calls from one dozen tipsters claiming they have seen the missing 23-year-old in the western part of the state near the Tennessee border over the last several days, a spokesperson for the department revealed.
One of those calls came from Dennis Davis, the hiker whose panicked 911 audio was released. According to Dennis, he's "99.99 percent sure" he spoke to Brian along a stretch of the Appalachian Trail.
"He was talking wild. He said that his girlfriend left him and he had to go out to California to see her," Dennis said in the dispatch audio released on Monday. "He was acting funny. And I wasn’t sure what he looked like. And then … I went and parked and pulled up the photographs of him. And I’m 99.99 percent sure that was him.”
Earlier this week, the Haywood County Sheriff's Office released a statement ensuring the public they were following up on every Brian lead.
"The Haywood County Sheriff's Office has received a number of calls regarding the sighting of Brian Laundrie over the past several days, each one being investigated thoroughly and areas of concern searched, but all to no avail," the statement read. "We will continue to respond and fully investigate all calls for service related to the nationwide search for Mr. Laundrie within our jurisdiction."
On Tuesday, the Laundrie family attorney clarified what day Brian's parents, Christopher and Roberta, last saw their child. They are now saying Brian left for his solo hike on September 13, not September 14, as previously claimed.
That means Brian had disappeared four days before Christopher and Roberta announced he was missing.
Brian's parents have maintained they have no idea where their son is, but his sister, Cassie Laundrie, isn't so sure. When asked if Christopher and Roberta were involved in the mess, she responded, "I don't know."
Brian went MIA on September 13, 12 days after returning home to Florida from his cross-country trip with Gabby in their van without her.
Gabby's body was found in Wyoming on September 19. The coroner ruled her death a homicide.
