NORTH PORT, Fla. — The person of interest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito has now disappeared, according to a family attorney.

The attorney for the family of Brian Laundrie texted a statement to KSL-TV’s Matt Rascon Friday evening.

It read: “Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” the message said. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is looking for both Gabby and Brian.”

Laundrie’s attorney also confirms Brian had not been seen by parents since Tuesday.

Petito was last seen with Laundrie traveling through Utah and Wyoming last month.
