Brian Laundrie Hiding Under Parent's Flower Bed, Rumor with Drone Video

Internet sleuths are peddling a conspiracy theory that Brian Laundrie is hiding under a flower bed in his parents’ Florida backyard after claiming drone footage captured a hand poking out of the soil.

They are alleging that the drone video, which is being shared widely on social media, shows the 23-year-old fugitive’s parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie, gardening in their yard.

The footage appears to show a woman resembling Roberta tending to a flowerbed as her husband stands nearby. It wasn’t immediately clear when the drone footage was shot.

Social media users are sharing versions of the footage online as they wildly claim it shows a hand reaching out of the flowerbed as Roberta leans over.

Some are claiming Laundrie could be hiding in a bunker under the flowerbed as law enforcement continues the weeks-long search for Gabby Petito’s missing boyfriend.

One TikTok user, charlienovasite, posted a video featuring zoomed-in portions of the drone footage, saying: “There is definitely someone there. You cannot change my mind.”

Another sleuth, mamabear_xo, said alongside their TikTok video that “Brian is under the garden bed. Watch him hand his mother something.”

After it emerged Thursday that Chris Laundrie had gone to the vast Florida reserve to help crews search for his son, TikTok user kmiller48wrote the FBI should be checking their yard.

“Chris Laundrie agrees to assist in the search for his son, Brian. Meanwhile Roberta Laundrie is busy as ever in the garden. Has the FBI checked the garden?” they wrote alongside the video.

Gabby Petito autopsy results press conference Tuesday, 10/12/21 2:30pm will be via a Zoom meeting limited to specific media outlets. News Channel 8 Tampa Bay will be streaming it LIVE via their Facebook page here.
