Is Brian Laundrie still in Florida? There’s a new surveillance video that shows a Laundrie lookalike riding a bike in Florida, and the FBI is investigating.

TMZ obtained new video footage that shows a cyclist riding a bike in the small town of Dunnellon, Florida.

  • Dunnellon is about three hours north of North Port, Laundrie’s hometown.

Per the New York Post, the cyclist was riding on a sugar sand path that people don’t often travel.

  • The video was reportedly turned over to the FBI.

This report comes as more Laundrie lookalikes have surfaced in recent days. According to The New Yorker, U.S. Marshals in New York recently rushed and pulled their guns on a man who looked like Laundrie.

  • Before that, a TikTok user went viral because he looked like Laundrie. He was planning to travel so he asked for tips on how to stay safe.

Laundrie is a person of interest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old woman from Long Island, New York. Petito and Laundrie, who were engaged, went on a road trip this summer across the country. But only Laundrie returned home to North Port on Sept. 1, driving Petito’s white van.

Petito was reported missing on Sept. 11 by her family. On Sept. 19, authorities found her body on the outskirts of a Wyoming national park. A coroner confirmed she died by strangulation.

Laundrie, though, was reported missing on Sept. 17. He has been missing ever since.
