"Gabby Petito's death at such a young age is a tragedy. While Brian Laundrie is currently charged with the unauthorized use of a debit card belonging to Gabby, Brian is only considered a person of interest in relation to Gabby Petito’s demise."

He ended, "At this time Brian is still missing and when he is located we will address the pending fraud charge against him."

The statement didn't impress Nicole who said, "his words are garbage." She proceeded to warn the attorney representing Brian's parents Christopher and Roberta to "keep talking."
