People are demanding answers!
The concerned citizens have been camping outside his home with signs that read “Speak up” as Laundrie has continued to refuse to speak with police.
Protests began on Thursday and the individuals were chanting “Where’s Gabby?,” while many others circled the surrounding area in golf carts, reported Fox News.
Other signs read: “Truth always comes out! #Justiceforgabby” and “Would she bring you home?”. Another protest is reportedly planned for Friday, September 17.
“We’re standing up for somebody who’s lost that’s in our city, and we’re a big family in our city, in North Port,” one of the demonstrators said. “And we are definitely going to do whatever we can to help the family find this missing daughter.”
“We all have children. If it were our child, we would want everyone to gather up and help us find our child too,” they continued. “So we’re going to do whatever it takes.”
Petito and Laundrie — who has been named a person of interest in his fiancé's disappearance — were on a cross-country excursion since early July. Relatives last spoke with Petito on August 25, when she was near Jackson, Wyoming.
The 22-year-old returned home without his girlfriend earlier this month in the white Ford Transit van they had been traveling in. Petito, 22, was reported missing on September 11 — 10 days after Laundrie returned to Florida.
Laundrie has repeatedly refused to cooperate in the investigation and detectives keep being advised to contact the family’s attorney with any questions.
Petito’s family has accused Laundrie and his relatives of withholding valuable information that could lead to solving the mysterious case.
