Brian Laundrie's parents say they DON'T know why he fled after Gabby Petito vanished but say son was 'out of sorts'

BRIAN Laundrie's parents do not know why their son fled after his fiancee Gabby Petito was reported missing but said he seemed "out of sorts" when he left their home for the final time, according to their lawyer.

Laundrie, 23, was last seen alive on September 13 after telling his parents, Chris and Roberta, that he was going hiking in the Carlton Reserve, in Sarasota County, Florida but failed to return home.


Just over five weeks later, on October 20, Brian's skeletal remains were found in a grassy stretch of land in Myakkahatchee Creek Park, which is adjacent to the Carlton Reserve, that had until recently been submerged in floodwaters.

The Laundrie family's attorney, Steve Bertolino, revealed last week that Brian was visibly "upset" when he left his parents' home in North Port for the last time.

"Brian was very upset when he left," Bertolino told NBC, adding that Chris Laundrie "conveyed to me several times that he wished he hadn't let him go, but he couldn't stop him."

'NOT HIMSELF'

In a follow-up interview with TMZ on Tuesday, the attorney said he "couldn't answer" the reason why Brian decided to leave but said he was "upset and distressed" at the time.

"He just did not seem himself," Bertolino said of Laundrie. "As Roberta Laundrie pointed out you just do not know what someone is thinking inside.

"They’re looking back and trying to figure out what his disposition was that day."
