    He had a phone in the body cam footage with police towards the end so it’s been established he 100% had a phone. When he told the cop he didn’t he was speaking to the earlier altercation. As in, he didn’t have a phone at that point in time. That most likely meant he didn’t have a charged phone since Gabby implied towards the end he’s bad about keeping his phone charged. So no lie was told.

    Do you think it may be possible he had prepaid minutes, was out of those minutes and was perhaps saying he didn't have a phone at that particular time?

    This focus on a completely reasonable speed of 45mph is kind of annoying. That's not fast. 15mph is slow as heck, may not have been as clearly posted as it should have been (like one sign that they missed from wherever they got on the road). Or just distracted and he gradually got up to speed without noticing. I have wondered speed on roads many times and it seemed to take forever before I finally got to a speed limit sign to verify what speed I should be driving.

    Didn't the tropical storm pass through around this time? Maybe the storage unit flooded and only Brian had access and needed to get his stuff out.

    I'm very impressed with the WFLA's JB Biunno for his dedication and keeping up the factual reporting.

    Because it would create an even bigger media circus and distract the searchers? Maybe?

    How come they haven't come out with camera footage of the gas stations? I mean he had to stop at multiple
     
  9. Maybe the sofa has a pull out extension to create a bed? I think it's quite a livable situation with a tent for additional space to relax & sleep as desired/needed. These are fit, slender young people on an outdoor adventure where the sunshine days average 280+. To me, for their purposes it is more than doable. If they planned to live in it in a rainy climate....no. Do we know if they wanted it to be more than a temporary home? A try it and see if you like it? Everyone who contemplates van living has a different dream and needs. I thought about it as freedom from renting but am middle aged and not as fit as them. Any Instagram fame for me would have been a miracle (or nightmare)....lol

    So, does this mean they know the van's whereabouts on Aug 25 , 26 and / or Aug 31 and Sept 1?

    Story I read was that family members saw the car at reserve and drove it back home. Makes no sense since he would have no car if he came back from hiking.
    It is possible that the parents now concerned because it’s been too long that he’s been gone and not in contact (yes, in some way serves them right) Also, he had to have been in bad state of mind with all that’s happening so they are even more concerned and have reason to report possible harm to himself.
    It’s also possible they are lying. Giving him cover while he is elsewhere away from the heat. I think there will be less media focus on them once it is established BL is not at house.

    If they leave the house they will be bombarded with people demanding to know where Gabby is.

    pretty sure his words were " I don't have a cell phone. ".

    Not, "I didn't have a cell phone (then)"

    If I suspected my POI son was in a wildlife park, in inclement weather, with gators out and about, I'd be in that parking lot talking to LE.
    I'd be on vigil.
    Where are the parents? Are they on the scene? Anywhere?
    There aren't any protesters at the preserve.

    Good question. They seem awfully unbothered by the fact their son, who is the focus of international media attention for his suspected involvement in his partner’s disappearance, is now on the run. And allegedly hiding out in swamp, nonetheless. But for some reason BL’s parents waited a few days to report their son as missing. IMO their (lack of a) response to BL absconding is very bizarre.

    Do you believe his family? I don’t.
    What about skirting around the truth. I think that’s what BL’s parents have been doing.

    Another thought. How long could one survive in the area they are now searching for Brian?

    his parents showing up would be a complete <modsnip>, even if they wanted to be there. not saying that in defense of the parents. they have to know their son is hated; look at the neighbors yelling at them. how many people would show up to yell at them?

    i don't think it's weird they are not there at all. what's weird is literally everything else.

    He was retelling a story. And he didn’t hesitate when he pulled the phone out later to give them his number. In any case, the cop understood what he meant and that’s good enough for me.

    I agree but also I think the large police presence there would prevent people showing up in the search area.
