    I think the 'camping trip' was more about taking stuff somewhere remote, than sightseeing. So I expect they left with far more luggage than they returned home with and Brian was due a shopping trip for some new clothes, shoes etc.

    Gabby's family meanwhile, probably have little to nothing of her clothing, shoes, bags, bedding, possessions to be returned.

    They may have dumped Brian en route, but they certainly dumped a lot of other things.

    Thank you for breaking it down that way. I believe that Gabby was working on this:

    https://nomadicstatik.com/

    when she was in Moab. People are mentioning her youtube upload, but the project she was trying to do was ambitious (own domain name, youtube videos, instagram reels, etc).

    It's very sad to look at that webpage now. It doesn't go anywhere.

    How would that change anything? I haven't heard anything that points to that, and others had commented on how slim she looked on July 12.

    Perhaps this is where the Laundries Attorny made his ‘first’ mistake, not considering Federal Law could come into play when advising his clients.

    Either they have a good tip or they are realizing he may not be there. I hope the FBI sues his parents if they’ve lied saying he was there. Maybe they told the FBI they went camping out there then Brian left to go out there.

    It's not incongruent. He would be doing it as punishment and he would know she'd be miserable the whole time. More trauma bonds. Also, leaving her like that is abusive in itself. He didn't care about her at all. Did she even have keys to the van? Believe me, Narcs will often abandon a person, even in a bar full of men, when they are angry and want to show you who is boss.

    I completely agree. FBI seem pretty sure he's in the reserve and they definitely know more than any of us here do.

    Thank you for your input - I guess your other half has probably the best insight there is into this then! I believe the spectrum is very wide, and as you say, a diagnosis can be different for each person.

    BL does seem high functioning though, you're right.

    I guess I'm trying to think of all the possible defence arguments an Attorney could present should BL be found alive, charged, and plead not guilty.

    MOO

    That would be a 'tragic accident'.

    I like both your thoughts, @InstantProof.

    1. What if dear Grampa, aka "Stan" was desperately calling GP the afternoon of 8/27 because his 6th sense was on fire... 'My sweet granddaughter is in grave danger.' :(
    2. What if LE is playing a game of cat and mouse with BL in that reserve? Could they know where he is and are tracking him, until they have enough evidence to arrest?

    Federal law supersedes state statute, correct? I appreciate learning the information but I don’t think FL law is relevant here. JMO but I believe a lawyer has also weighed in.

    IMO I don’t this this is the case at all. BL regularly posts shunning social media and being “connected”. Prior to GP he seems to have zero social media presence at all. He makes comments about spending too much time online. I don’t think he wanted the online / influencer stuff or attention at all. I think that is why he was so frustrated because that seemed to be GPs focus.

    Its all getting fuzzy after the deluge of information, but I don't think there has ever been any definitive statement that they were fighting over the phone. The 911 caller said it looked like they were fighting over a phone, but LE didn't speak to him in person. (I wonder why that person hasn't actually come out and done and interview about his call). BL said she had it in her hand while she was slapping at him and thats what cut his eye. I can't recall exactly what GP said about the phone. But I can easily see a scenario where he wasn't trying to take her phone away to control her internet use, but rather to stop her from using it as a weapon. That wouldn't make him any less of an emotional or physical abuser, or that he didn't deserve her defensive actions (if thats what they were).

    Yes. Yes one can. But there's not the slightest indication (to which I'd be able to point) that suggests they did that. Every publicly available piece that I've seen is touristy. If one truly wants to be a adventure/travel/overland/vanlife YouTube-type, one finds new angles. I see none of that. Maybe they did, and it simply hasn't been published. My money is on this trip being a bunch of "name brand" visits. But, I'll acknowledge, there could have been more to it.

    I haven't been able to find a 911 transcript or recording that doesn't have the entire name blocked out/muted. However, the police report does seem to make it clear that ofc. Pratt was talking to witness #2 - who had given him his number.

    If the 911 caller is also a "Chris" it does add a bit of confusion - but I think it is pretty clear who the officers were on the phone with at the scene of the traffic stop.
