Brian Laundrie sleuths think Gabby’s ‘duck-footed’ fiancé is disguising walk and wearing make-up in bid to dodge cops

ONLINE sleuths claim that Gabby Petito’s “duck-footed” fiancé Brian Laundrie might be disguising his walk and wearing makeup in a bid to dodge police.

Laundrie, 23, was reported missing on September 17 and remains at large as police continue to scour a 25,000-acre nature reserve in Florida.

Amateur detectives have been behind a huge effort to try and find Laundrie as his whereabouts currently remain unknown.

Some have studied bodycam footage from when Laundrie and Gabby were stopped in Utah, and they claimed Brian appears to be slightly duck-footed.

As he is showing cops inside his 2012 Ford Transit white camper van, Laundrie's feet appear to be pointing outwards.

One Twitter "detective" said: "Noticing he appears to be slightly duck-footed. Distinctive."

Another said: "It was one of the very first things I noticed about his stance."

Meanwhile, other Reddit users appear to be more skeptical, adding that Laundrie wouldn't be able to change the way that he walks.

Speculation is also circulating that Laundrie may have covered his tattoo with makeup or bandaids.

On February 14, Gabby uploaded a series of snaps documenting romantic moments with Laundrie.

The young couple was pictured kissing, eating Chinese food, and holding hands where they are showcasing "matching" tattoos.

Brian is seen with a tattoo that looks like a vine leaf on one of his fingers. It's not known when he got the artwork done.

But, in other snaps where Gabby and Laundrie are posing in national parks in Utah, the artwork doesn’t appear to be showing.

The tattoo doesn't seem to be visible on the vlogger's fiancé's hand as he tries to navigate the canyons while sand surfing in the state.

Detectives have trawled through Laundrie’s Pinterest profile and discovered a board titled: “Things to Burn Off”, Meaww reports.

There is an extensive range of ideas for couple tattoos, including love hearts and detailed patterns of the sun and moon.

There are several images of vine leaf tattoos - similar to what Laundrie had inked onto his finger.

'AMATEUR DETECTIVES'

It remains unknown if Laundrie had the artwork removed but online detectives wildly claim that he may have covered it with makeup or bandages.

Sleuths have tried to piece together potential evidence in a bid to help police and FBI agents investigating the case.

Online detectives alleged that Laundrie may have a burner phone after spotting “changes” to his Spotify and Instagram accounts.

Some appear to have monitored his social media accounts closely and claim that he has unfollowed several people on Instagram.

Internet users fascinated by the case insist they have proof that Laundrie allegedly created a Spotify playlist called 'Selfconsomption' shortly after Gabby vanished.

WILD CLAIMS

Sleuths have also tried to unearth clues since Gabby was reported missing on September 11.

In a YouTube video, travel bloggers Jenn and Kyle Bethune claim they spotted the couple's camper van parked off a dirt track in Wyoming on August 27 - just two days after Gabby reportedly last spoke with her family.

Some internet detectives claimed they saw someone digging in a field near where the vehicle was last seen.

One person wrote: “Someone needs to check that field asap, I don’t think it's her but there is something of significance he’s put out there, remains of her phone, jewelry, something of significance to her!!! Something is in a field to the left of the screen.”

Another Facebook user added: “Definitely a person there…” and attached a screengrab appearing to show a figure in some bushes behind the van.

There is no evidence that there was a "person" in the field.

Others shared snaps showing a pair of abandoned sandals left on a dirt track that looked similar to shoes Gabby was wearing while touring the midwestern canyons.

And, some noticed stickers near the number plates that appear to be from Venice, Florida.

Gabby’s remains were found in a Wyoming campground – a week after she was reported missing by her parents.

Laundrie remains at a large after he was reported missing and cops are yet to find him.

He allegedly told his parents that he was going for a hike in a nature reserve. Laundrie’s whereabouts remain unknown

But reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter claims that Laundrie could be moving from island to island in a canoe.

Dog, real name Duane Chapman, revealed on Monday he received a "hot lead" that Brian and his parents went into Fort De Soto Park in early September, and only the parents returned.

He told Fox News: “There’s a lot of little islands around the area where we’re at, that he could get to on a canoe. We talked to the caretakers today of the islands, they said he could be out here.

“He was here, for sure. Not over in the swamp."

The Fort de Soto Park area is about 75 miles from the Laundrie family home in North Port.

Laundrie’s parents released a new statement through their lawyer Steve Bertolino to address rumors about their knowledge of his whereabouts.

It reads: "Chris and Roberta Laundrie do not know where Brian is. They are concerned about Brian and hope the FBI can locate him.

"The speculation by the public and some in the press that the parents assisted Brian in leaving the family home or in avoiding arrest on a warrant that was issued after Brian had already been missing for several days is just wrong."
