Brian Laundrie’s parents rebuffed questions about their son’s whereabouts and told the media to scram as they left their home in Florida on Thursday morning.
Christopher and Roberta Laundrie were confronted by reporters as they headed to their red Dodge Ram pick-up truck in the driveway of their North Port home.
“Mr. and Mrs. Laundrie, do you know where he is? Can you tell us?” one reporter asked.
“Go,” snapped Christopher.
“I’m going to go that way. I’m going to go that way,” he continued, pointing down the street before climbing into the truck with his wife.
The couple reported their son missing to authorities Friday after he vanished from their home days earlier amid search efforts for his slain girlfriend, Gabby Petito.
The FBI confirmed Tuesday that Petito’s body was found in a national park in Wyoming, and Brian was a person of interest in the case.
Search crews have been hunting for him in the nearby 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve, where he is believed to have headed with a backpack on Sept. 14.
