The investigation into the disappearance and likely death of Gabby Petito has shifted to Brian Laundrie’s parents — whose Florida home was raided by FBI agents Monday morning.
Christopher and Roberta Laundrie have refused to speak to police about Petito’s case — even blowing them off after Brian returned from his cross-country trip with Petito on Sept. 1.
On Friday, the couple reported Brian missing three days after they said they last saw him.
Here’s what else to know about the Laundries:
Where do they live?
Christopher, 62, and Roberta Laundrie, 55, bought their 1,448-square-foot home in North Port for $120,000 in August, 2015, according to property records.
Two years later, they tried selling the modest three bedroom, two bath home at $215,000 with no luck.
What do the Laundries do for a living?
The couple runs a business called “Juice Services Inc.” out of their home that specializes in the sale and repair of wheatgrass, orange and vegetable juicers, according to company records.
Before their ill-fated road trip, Laundrie worked at an organic juice bar and Petito told cops in Moab, Utah that she was a “nutritionist.”
Up until 2008, the Laundries lived in Bayport, Long Island, where they ran another beverage vending machine business.
Have they been arrested?
No. Christopher and Roberta were seen being escorted out of their home by FBI agents Monday morning and climbing into a black van, where they stayed for about an hour.
They were also spotted talking to authorities on their backyard patio.
What have they said about Petito’s disappearance?
Not a whole lot. The Laundries have issued two statements through their lawyer since news of the Petito case went viral.
The first was on behalf of Brian on Tuesday, who said through attorney Steven Bertolino that it was an “extremely difficult time” for both families.
“I understand that a search has been organized for Miss Petito in or near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming,” the statement said.
“On behalf of the Laundrie family it is our hope that the search for Miss Petito is successful and that Miss Petito is re-united with her family. On the advice of counsel the Laundrie family is remaining in the background at this juncture and will have no further comment.”
Unbeknownst to the public, Tuesday was the last day Christopher and Roberta saw their son, who claimed to be going on a hike in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County.
The couple told cops on Friday that he was missing.
Bertolino issued another statement on behalf of the Laundries shortly after authorities announced Petito’s apparent remains were found in Wyoming.
“The news about Gabby Petito is heartbreaking,” Bertolino told The Post in a text message.
“The Laundrie family prays for Gabby and her family.”
What about Brian’s sister?
Laundrie’s sister, Cassandra, who also lives at the family home, spoke to ABC News and claimed to be clueless about Petito’s disappearance.
“Obviously, me and my family want Gabby to be found safe,” Cassie said.
“She is like a sister and my children love her, and all I want is for her to come home safe and sound and this be just a big misunderstanding.”
“Ahh oh my gosh I can’t believe school started already!!! Haha I saw your post on Instagram! So cute!! Send me the picture of the boys to show Brian!! Lol and I love their backpacks too!!” Petito texted Cassie on Aug. 10, the screenshot shows.
“We’re in arches right now so we don’t have be [sic] best WiFi, but we did send you some mail,” she added, apparently referring to the Arches National Park north of Moab in Utah.
