Brian Laundrie’s sister reveals final texts and postcards she was sent by Gabby Petito as family home searched
BRIAN Laundrie’s sister has revealed the last texts and postcards she was sent by Gabby Petito.
Cops are currently searching the family home in North Port, Florida, and Laundrie’s Ford Mustang has been towed away.
Cassie Laundrie received a text from Petito on August 10, according to a screenshot posted on Twitter by WABC reporter Kristin Thorne, which referenced Cassie’s sons.
“Ahh oh my gosh I can’t believe school started already!!! Haha I saw your post on Instagram! So cute!! Send me the picture of the boys to show Brian!! Lol and I love their backpacks too!!”, the message read.
“We’re in arches right now so we don’t have be [sic] best WiFi, but we did send you some mail,” she added, in an apparent reference to the Arches National Park north of Moab in Utah.
Cassie was also sent several postcards by Petito, from Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park and Red Canyon, part of the state’s Dixie National Forest about 10 miles outside of Bryce.
“Guess what!! Oh my Gosh! Me and uncle Brian were sitting on a Rock eating a snack after our long walk, and the fattest Squirrel I’ve ever seen!!! Came Right on my lap!! And with its tiny Hands Stole a piece of the granola bar I was eating!! Can you Believe it!” Petito wrote.
“He must steal everyones Food … oh man! That’s wild! A Squirrel!!!! Lol! Aunt Gabby,” she added.
In another postcard shared with Good Morning America she wrote: “Uncle Brian and I miss you so much! Everywhere we go Reminds us of you, like the Red Rocks at Bryce Canyon! The sky here is so open, there’s more stars than I’ve ever seen!!”
She added: “Scorpio is so Big and bright every night! It’s always the first one me and uncle Brian Spot! Love Aunt Gabby.”
During Cassie’s interview Friday she said she hadn’t yet spoken to her brother Brian after he had returned alone to Florida in the couple’s van on September 1.
“I haven’t been able to talk to him. I wish I had information where I could give more,” Cassie said, adding she had told police everything she knew. It was unclear what information she was able to provide investigators.

Laundrie is said to have gone off for a hike in the 25,000-acre nature preserve Tuesday, according to his family.
But the 23-year-old hasn’t been seen since and he was reported missing Friday to cops.
A search of the swampland started Saturday morning but was called off by police Monday, who said they had “exhausted all avenues in searching of the grounds there.”
SEARCH FOR LAUNDRIE CONTINUES
The search for Laundrie continues after he was declared a “person of interest” last week in the disappearance of Gabby Petito.
Cops started searching the Laundrie family home today and bundled his parents into a police van after declaring a "crime scene."
The latest developments in the bizarre case came just hours after a body was found in the search for Petito.
The FBI announced a "search warrant" twice before they removed Chris and Roberta Laundrie from the home. The parents were placed in a van on their lawn.
An FBI agent was seen entering the home with a bag and an envelope. It is unclear why they are at the scene. They were later seen bringing folding chairs and a table inside.
Police taped off the area and told people nearby that they were "in a crime scene."
In a statement, the FBI confirmed that they were executing a "court-authorized search warrant."
HUMAN REMAINS DISCOVERED
It comes after human remains were discovered in Grand Teton National Park, where 22-year-old Gabby Petito had been camping with Laundrie when she disappeared.
The vlogger had been traveling across America since July and was last seen on August 24 leaving a Utah hotel with her fiancé.
They visited national parks and tourist attractions, documenting their trip on social media, before she went missing.
On September 1, Laundrie returned home to Florida in their white van, without Petito.
Following the unusual circumstances, Petito's mother, Nicole Schmidt, reported her daughter missing on September 11 at around 6.55pm.
Cops found the couple's Ford Transit van in North Port, Florida, during the weekend of September 11 – when Gabby's parents reported her disappearance.
Laundrie returned to the state and hired an attorney, but went missing after he was named a person of interest.
