Brian Laundrie will break into cabins to steal food as winter sets in & cold weather could flush him out, PI claims


BRIAN Laundrie will break into cabins to steal food when winter hits and the cold weather could flush him out, a private investigator claims.

Gabby Petito’s fugitive fiancé remains at large as the search to find the 23-year-old enters its fifth week.

Private investigator Jason Jensen told NewsNationNow:  “I can’t imagine it’s going to take too much – the cold and winter is going to flush Brian out. We’ll have to see.”

He believes that Laundrie is hiding in the Appalachian Mountains.

Jensen said: “I would really start in Northern Georgia and work my way up to South Carolina. That’s where I’d concentrate my efforts.

“You’re going to have a milder winter there and I do know that I would expect that my cabin would be broken into if I had one in that area because he’s going to try and take shelter there or steal provisions.”

The private investigator says fugitives flee to familiar surroundings and Laundrie celebrated Gabby’s 22nd birthday on the Appalachian Trail.

Jensen added: “I believe that he thinks in his mind he’s familiar with this area enough that he could blend in and hide.”

Former FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer thinks it’s “certainly plausible” that Laundrie may be hiding out on the Appalachian Trail.

She told NewsNationNow Monday: “It’s one of the possibilities that have to be considered.

“I believe he is a camper, I think he likes that sort of arena that is the mountains, and I think that’s obvious by the trip he chose to take with Gabby Petito.”

A hiker came face-to-face with US Marshals on the Appalachian Trail due to his “resemblance” to Laundrie.

Severin Beckwith and Anna Brettmann were napping at a lodge at Fontana Village Resort near the trail when their door was busted open.

Beckwith told the New Yorker: “Next thing I see is a bunch of guys with riot shields with ‘U.S. Marshals’ written on them.”

The hiker claimed guns were pointed at his face and he was handcuffed by cops. Beckwith believes this happened because of his “resemblance” to Laundrie.


He said agents grabbed the side of his head and zeroed in on “a notch in the upper part of my inner ear“.

The Marshals realized they had the wrong person and released Beckwith after they checked his ID.

Last month, private investigator Bill Warner claimed Brian was alive and on the run in the Appalachian Trail 

The investigator branded Gabby’s fiancé a “mastermind” for leaving behind his wallet, ID, driver’s license, and credit cards.

He also claimed Laundrie — who was reported missing by his family on September 17 — appeared “well aware of law enforcement tracking techniques.”

Cops have scoured Florida’s Carlton Reserve for weeks after the 23-year-old allegedly told his parents Chris and Roberta that he was taking a hike in the alligator-infested park.

Survivalist Mark Burrow told The Herald-Tribune that police should have found evidence of him being there by now.

He added the fact they haven’t might indicate that he wasn’t there.


Burrow warned that coyotes and alligators “would eat” the fugitive if he’s struggling.

Wilderness expert Mark Urban told Insider: “You have so many animals that are hungry.

“You can be in a snake stomach, you can be in a gator stomach, or you can be eviscerated by a bear.

“An animal is not going to eat out in public. It’s going to take back to where it feels safe and sheltered.

“Some of these animals can destroy you in this Florida heat.”

Laundrie could find it hard to find safe drinking water or start a fire on the waterlogged land.

Survivalists think Laundrie could make “foolish decisions” while on the run.


FBI agents issued an arrest warrant, accusing the 23-year-old of swiping a Capital One debit card.

Former US Marshal Lenny DePaul believes the fugitive is “sleeping with one eye open” as he fears law enforcement’s next move.

He told the New York Post: “He’s gonna mess up. He’s going to make a mistake.”

And, wilderness expert Dave Canterbury told The Sun: “Psychology is a big part of survival. Not only the fact that he’s trying to survive, but he’s also running and being pursued.

“There are a lot of things that are playing on his psychology that will end up making himself turn in, make a mistake, or get himself in a perilous situation. All of those things combined will give him problems.”

Canterbury warned last month that Laundrie could be battling hypothermia in weeks if he’s hiding in the Florida wilderness as the state is prone to dramatic temperature swings in the fall.
