Brian Laundrie has been issued an FBI arrest warrant but not for Gabby Petito’s death.
The FBI said Laundrie is wanted for “use of unauthorised access device” related to his activities between August 30 and September 1, following the YouTuber’s homicide.
The arrest warrant is reportedly for the fraudulent use of a Capitol One Bank card. However, it’s not clear if this is Gabby Petito.
TMZ has obtained a motion stating that prosecutors have requested Laundrie be held without bail to prevent him from being tried.
The statement was released today by the Bureau’s Denver desk, reading: “While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito’s homicide.
“We urge individuals with knowledge of Mr Laundrie’s role in this matter or his current whereabouts to contact the FBI.”
According to a witness, Gabby was last seen alive in Jackson Hole on August 27, Wyoming. She tried to end the heated argument between Brian Laundrie’s fiance and a hostess at a Tex-Mex joint.
On Sunday, investigators discovered her body in Grand Teton National Park.
On September 11, she was reported missing after she set off from New York in a white van with 23-year-old Laundrie. Gabby documented their journeys via social media.
According to authorities, Petito’s last sighting was by Laundrie who has been identified as a “person-of interest”.
He returned home to Florida in September without her, and has so far refused to cooperate with authorities.
His family last saw him several days ago. He went on a hike last Friday and did not return after three days.
Laundrie is being sought out by cops from Carlton Reserve, a swampy area of 25,000 acres located just a few minutes from his Florida home in North Port.
Although the FBI has not yet revealed why Laundrie might be at the Carlton Reserve they have not found him as the extensive search enters its sixth day.
