The last thing Gabe’s parents hear from her is a text message saying that there is no cell phone coverage in Yosemite National Park in California.
Nicole Schmidt, Gabe’s mother, doesn’t think her daughter wrote the letter.
The police tried to speak to Brian but he always refused.
Investigation of missing persons
In a statement, Brian Laundry and his family said they are “remaining in the background” while the police investigation continues.
Now his family says he too has been missing since Tuesday, according to reports BBC.
Police say the development is “disappointing”.
“For six days, the Northport Police Department and the FBI have asked the family to contact investigators,” they wrote in a statement Friday.
“We are not investigating a crime. We are conducting several investigations into missing persons,” he added.
Brian is not gone.
On Friday, protesters gathered outside the Laundry family home, chanting “Where’s Gabby?”
Brian’s sister Cassandra told ABC News that she’s been following events through the news.
Of course, my family and I hope that Gabe will be found. She’s like a sister and my kids love her, all I want is for her to come home safely and securely, and that’s just a huge misunderstanding, she says.
But the family’s attorney Pettito does not believe that is the case.
Gaby’s entire family wants the world to know that Brian isn’t missing, he’s in hiding. Gabe is gone, he says.
