For someone trying to elude police, Brian Laundrie seems to be everywhere — at least according to people who claim to have seen the fugitive, who also was allegedly spotted biking along a country road in Florida.
TMZ obtained video from a witness who claimed then mystery cyclist — who he says is most likely Laundrie — was seen Oct. 9 near his property in the small town of Dunnellon, some three hours north of the 23-year-old’s hometown of North Port.
The person with a heavy backpack was traveling along a rugged sugar sand path where people rarely venture – on foot or by vehicle, according to the news outlet, which also reported that the video was turned over to the FBI.
Among the multitude of sightings was one of an upstate New Yorker named Severin Beckwith, who found himself staring down the barrels of US Marshals’ guns as he napped with his partner on the Appalachian Trail.
Beckwith’s only crime was being bald and bearded – thus bearing a close resemblance to Laundrie – when the feds barged into a room he shared with Anna Brettmann at the Lodge at Fontana Village Resort.
But he was quickly cleared because he didn’t have Laundrie’s telltale tattoos and he produced an ID that ruled him out as the wanted man.
The fugitive has not been named a suspect in his girlfriend Gabby Petito’s death, but is wanted on a federal warrant for unauthorized use of her bank card and has been the subject of a massive manhunt since Sept. 18.
