(NewsNation Now) — The family of Gabby Petito publicly asked the missing YouTuber’s boyfriend’s parents to come forward with any information they have about her disappearance.
“We believe you know the location of where Brian left Gabby,” the letter reads. “We beg you to tell us.”
The letter, read out loud by family spokesperson Richard Stafford, asks the Laundrie family to imagine what it’s like to be missing so many answers.
“Please, if you or your family have any decency left, please tell us where Gabby is located. Tell us if we are even looking in the right place,” it says.
The letter came on the same day Utah police released bodycam video of an encounter between Petito and her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. Police were called to respond to a domestic disturbance Aug. 12. Petito last texted her family Aug. 30.
She was on a cross-country road trip with Laundrie, and the two were documenting it in a YouTube series called Van Life.
Police say Petito’s car was found at Laundrie’s parents’ home Sept. 11. Petito and Laundrie live with them. He is now a person of interest in her disappearance. Nobody has been arrested or charged with a crime.
Police in North Point, Florida, where Laundrie and Petito live, are frustrated.
“The lack of information from Brian is hindering this investigation,” North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison said Wednesday. “The answers will eventually come out.”
“Two people went on a trip, one retuned. That one that returned is not talking and he has all the information I believe that we’re looking for,” Garrison said on Thursday’s “NewsNation Prime” broadcast.
Brian Laundrie has rights under the Constitution not to speak with police, so, “We’ll use all the other resources in our power to find out where Gabby’s at,” Garrison said.
“I spent time with the family today. It’s heart-wrenching. We want to bring her home. Someone out there has the missing pieces that we need. It’s frustrating, because we want to bring Gabby home, because Gabby’s family deserves that.”
