    He did not leave it there a few days. It was driven there on Tuesday and retrieved either Tuesday night by his parents or early weds morning. The citation or whatever was probably placed there sometime Tuesday. Mustang was in the driveway on Wednesday morning. jmo

    As far as I know, no official identification has been released. But since this is now considered a federal crime, I assume the FBI/etc have sufficient evidence it is her without an "official identification" from the coroner in Wyoming.

    I'm sure they just mean when her remains have been returned for proper burial, after the autopsy.

    I took it to say that they are awaiting cause of death...etc. and "when Gabby is home" are her remains.

    If no one was found, how can they exclude that it may have been Brian Laundrie?

    The Johnny Mac Foundation has lined the streets throughout the community with teal ribbons.

    The color was chosen by Petito's mom, Nicole Schmidt, to resemble her daughter’s eyes, according to Johnny Mac Foundation founder Jennifer McNamara.

    Family members say they hope loved ones, friends and strangers will look at them and think of Petito.

    The foundation and neighbors are inviting everyone to tie the ribbons to show the family they are supported in this dark time.

    Sorry if not allowed, first post here :) I’ve been watching for helicopters and it looked to be a coast guard helicopter searching the southern alabama/Mississippi state line. No clue if it’s related, but there are quite a few coast guard helicopters in the area.

    I think the story goes he'd said where he was going to hike and when he hadn't returned they went looking and saw the car.

    I can't imagine BL hiding out for long without adequate funding. Perhaps his family has already provided some $$$, but it is unlikely he'll receive more. Eventually an arrest warrant will be issued and family accounts will be watched. IMO. Does anyone think the Florida Reserve is a red herring?

    I’ve lived on the US/MX border most of my life. Mexican customs is not checking nationality when someone enters by land bridge into Mexico. They are more concerned on taxing things of value being imported or taken back into the country. You would need a passport or border crossing card to travel back into US, because this is one of the requirements by US Customs. Citizens could potentially still trace back to US without either but it would be a long process to verify your identity and citizenship.

    If the tent site was the gravesite, I would agree....but it wasn't.

    The mustang thing is really weird. Why, if the parents expected him home from a "hike", would they go take his car away? They see the note to move it from authorities, so take it home on Wed (as per reporter). But they don't say anything to anyone for 2 days? They don't worry that he's missing, & immediately reach out? It makes absolutely no sense!

    Yes, it's pouring and thundering right now in this whole area. Wouldn't be safe.

    Considering the longer helicopter video literally shows the police moving the tent after it's been unfurled and raised, I'm gonna guess the place they moved it to is the gravesite.

    Thank you.

    Brian is a frequent visitor to the Carlton Reserve. There is a pic of him in the reserve with his nephew in instagram. If he had gone there with his family a couple of times, I'm sure they would know which part of the reserve he is most familiar with. I hope they come forward with the info or share previous pics of him in the reserve, so that LE can narrow their search. I believe they have already done that and it might be the reason for the renewed efforts. It is a very dense area. I hope their efforts pay off.

    On the subject of water purification, the easiest way to purify water when there’s ample freshwater source is chemically with water tabs. You can fit a 30 day supply into a small pill bottle and they treat 1-2L at a time. I keep them with me even when traveling internationally so I’m never stuck without water.

    Life straws are super expensive to use as an only purification method and they can’t be used to purify water for washing face/ cleaning wounds. Eye and skin infections in the wild are a nightmare.

    I doubt BL has thought about any of this, though. He couldn’t even maintain a water supply in the van.

    I have a real concern that if BL is hiding and LE starts closing in on him, he might harm himself. I'm hoping he just gives up and let's the process start, but I don't know...
