Brian Laundrie’s sister on Tuesday implored her fugitive brother to hand himself in to police.
“I would tell my brother to just come forward and get us out of this horrible mess,” Cassie Laundrie told “Good Morning America” in an interview teased on Twitter.
“I worry about him. I hope he’s okay — and then I’m angry,” she admitted of her 23-year-old brother who went missing days before his missing girlfriend Gabby Petito, 22, was found dead.
Cassie Laundrie — who on Monday said her parents are refusing to speak to her — also said that she wished her brother had turned to her when he first aborted his cross-country trip with Petito, returning to Florida on Sept. 1, 10 days before his beau was officially reported missing.
“I really wish he had come to me first that day with the van, because I don’t think we’d be here,” she said in the short clip of the interview posted online.
Laundrie instead went to the home of his parents, who did not initially let law enforcement talk to him — and then waited three days before reporting the fact that he’d fled the home on Sept. 14.
The sole “person of interest” in Petito’s case is now part of a massive manhunt, with an FBI arrest warrant.
