Missing fugitive Brian Laundrie’s mother reportedly canceled Florida camping reservations for two people the day before he returned to his parents’ home without Gabby Petito – and then she made new reservations for three people.
On Aug. 24, Roberta Laundrie made reservations for two at the Soto Park Campground in St. Petersburg between Sept. 1 and 3, but changed them on Aug. 31 for three people for the weekend of Sept. 6-8, according to documents obtained by Fox News.
Her 23-year-old son — who has been named by police as a “person of interest” in Petito’s death — returned to his parents’ North Port home in Florida on Sept. 1 in her 2012 Ford Transit.
The Laundries, who listed their Dodge pickup truck on the reservation form, checked in at the site on Sept. 6 and checked out two days later, the network reported, citing other documents it has obtained.
Thomas Rutherford, a camper who was at the location with his wife the same weekend, told Fox News that he could “vaguely remember” seeing their vehicle with an attached camper.
A person who used to work at Civic Plus, a software company that manages the Fort De Soto campground’s reservation system, told Fox News on condition of anonymity that he believed the Laundries may have known their son was coming home Aug. 31 and made the changes to their reservations.
The source told Fox that the information about the changed reservations has been turned over to the feds.
Meanwhile, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe suggested in a new interview that Laundrie’s parents know more than they have said.
“What do Laundrie’s parents really know?” the former G-man told Headline News, according to The Sun.
“When you think about essentially taking a weekend camping vacation with your son who just returned back from months on the road camping with his fiancée — and returned without his fiancée — it’s almost impossible to imagine that conversations didn’t take place between them,” McCabe said.
He suggested that Chris and Roberta Laundrie likely would have asked their son basic questions “like, oh, I don’t know ‘Where is your fiancee?’ and ‘Why did you leave her in Wyoming? — or wherever he claims to have parted ways?”
The parents have denied any knowledge of or involvement in their son’s disappearance.
In other developments, the FBI has reportedly executed a search warrant at the parents’ home and took their son’s phone.
The family’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, told 8 On Your Side that Laundrie opened an account with AT&T for a phone that was purchased on Sept. 4. He said Laundrie left the phone at their home the day he took a hike at the Carlton Reserve.
