PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. – According to Pinellas County documents, Roberta Laundrie checked into Fort De Soto Park on September 6. The documents show she checked out on September 8.

This was all before 22-year-old Gabby Petito was reported missing on September 11. Petito was found dead in an area of Grand Teton National Park & Bridger-Teton National Forest on September 21.

Brian Laundrie’s attorney confirmed Brian and his parents visited the area together. He said that all three of them left on September 7 despite the park records showing they left a day later.

NBC2 spoke to a Fort Myers couple who camped next to the Laundrie family on September 6.

They looked back on their photos and found a red truck with a camper attached to it. They are similar to the truck and camper that has been parked in front of the Laundrie family home for the past two weeks.

We asked North Port Police if they physically saw Brian Laundrie on September 11 and they said no. We then asked if police saw him at any point in time after September 11 until the 14th. Police said they have been asked to withhold that information for the integrity of the investigation.
