The family of missing Long Island woman Gabby Petito on Tuesday slammed her boyfriend for stonewalling police and refusing to say where he last saw the 22-year-old — as the search for her continues.
Her family’s statement came just hours after Petito’s boyfriend, Brian Laundrie — who continues to dodge cops — broke his silence, saying through his lawyer that he would “remain in the background.”
Petito’s mother, Nicole Schmidt, and her father, Joe Petito, have both pleaded for her return.
“The Schmidt and Petito family are going through the worst moments of their lives,” according to the statement, posted on Twitter Tuesday by WNBC reporter Pei-Sze Cheng.
“Brian is refusing to tell Gabby’s family where he last saw her,” their statement said. “Brian is also refusing to explain why he left Gabby all alone and drove her van to Florida. These are critical questions that require immediate answers.
“The Schmidt and Petito family beg the Laundrie family to not ‘remain in the background’ but to help find who Brian referred to as the love of his life,” the statement said. “How does Brian stay in the background when he is the one person that knows where Gabby is located.”
The family added that they “implore” Laundrie “to come forward and at least tell us if we are looking in the right area.”
Laundrie and Petito, who lived together in Florida, left on the coast-to-coast trip in July and were due to wrap up the trip at a friend’s home in Portland around Halloween.
But Laundrie returned home to Florida in the 2012 Ford Transit van they were traveling in on Friday — without Petito.
He has since retained an attorney and refused to cooperate with police — who were also rebuffed by Laundrie’s parents.

"Well, after I killed her there wasn't much point to keeping her body around, so I left her. Makes sense, no?"
It’s pretty simple.
If he never talks to the cops, they can never prosecute him.
time for water-boarding.
We need to find these soulless New Yorkers hide out - address in Northport FL and protest there .Exhibit A of More NY true scum invading FL.
Smoke them out and drive them out of FL .
The father has a Juicing business in Long island their real home.
The parents should be charged for blocking a missing person investigation and possible human trafficking and conspiracy of kidnapping over a state line as well as the homicidal psychopath son .
Gee....would he have something to hide?
when I first read that the van was ‘located’ I guess I thought it would be out west somewhere. but it’s in his parent’s driveway? And he drove it home?
that is completely not true at all
The Tampa FBI office needs to be brought in now or maybe they have been .
Her phone can be pinged and triangulated even if off, even with gps off, and if they find that phone or put that phone pinging where he physically was, when mom received that text message 5 days after her last live conversation with her daughter, he’s a dead man walking, mute or not
also to look at is whether the van was scrubbed and where her camping and personal care items and other possessions are - local dump would make it an easier story. Even if girlfriend ran off with a trucker, a rational person would take her things to her home.
Would the fact that the bfs parents are evidently sticking with the bf be a potential indication of innocence? Physically Separated pings will lead police quickly to the location of the separation location.
A possible story is that the gf and bf got into an argument on the road somewhere. The gf said you’ll be sorry and I will make you pay. Then she deliberately left him in a way designed to make him look guilty. He panicked and drove to his parents home. She unexpectedly met with foul play by some stranger or strangers after leaving him.
Either something like this happened or bf and his family are conspiring to be inordinately cruel to gfs parents.
Simple : waterboard the guy a few times. He’ll talk
The police need to investigate
these New Yorkers Past . They went onto cover up mode real quick like they have Done this Before and maybe fled to Northport FL for others reasons .
My Aunt in Cocoa Beach FL had Russian two Russian spies two doors down and they called the coast guard on them for no running lights on their boat in the canal one night . They were carted away the same week .
You never know.
Prayers they are able to find her alive. It’s not looking good.
Police in Utah responded to an “incident” involving missing Long Island native Gabby Petito and boyfriend Brian Laundrie about two weeks before she was last seen — but no arrests were made and no criminal charges were filed as a result.
Moab Chief of Police Bret Edge said an unidentified person called in “an incident” involving the couple on August 12, according to Fox News.
“Officers conducted an investigation and determined that insufficient evidence existed to justify criminal charges,” Edge told the outlet.
My gut says Laundrie is a coward and he’ll be busted w/in a week max and unless he’s taken by force without warning, he’ll off himself.
