Christopher and Roberta last saw their son three days prior to his disappearance when he told them that he was going on a hike. According to both parents and their attorney, the young man left with "no known means of communication."

On Monday September, 20, Brian's black mustang was removed from the family home after they said that they recovered it from Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida on Thursday, September 17. As OK! previously reported, on Thursday, September 23, the FBI issued an arrest warrant for Brian.

The FBI's Denver field office stated that the warrant is not for homicide but for "activities following the death of Gabrielle Petito." The indictment claims that Brian "knowingly and with intent to defraud" used "unauthorized access devices" such as a Capital One debit bank card, from August 30 to September 1.

On Friday, North Port Police Commander Joe Fussell said in a video released by the police department that "The warrant doesn't change anything for us."

"We're working as hard to find him now as we did on day one. "We are not wasting our time out here. We are doing our due diligence to find Brian in an area that intelligence had led us that he could possibly be in," Fussell said.
