    Exactly. He must have felt he didn’t need cell phone or wallet, either because:

    a. he had new burner phones, new ID, new supplies (and his parents are in on it, so their call to police was a ruse or ploy)
    OR
    b. He intended to take his own life and wouldn’t need them (in which case his parents calling police was genuine).

    I checked on line and it appears that you can purchase a burner phone and data with cash.
    If you are really worried about your identity being captured by CCV, you could pay a stranger to make the purchase for you.

    Josh and Leanne Bearden? She took her own life after they travelled around the world together. I remember that very well. Not sure if that is who you meant though.

    Yes, look up tensile, they are a real thing, I have one in our backyard, but they are not that easy to set up on the fly and not easy to conceal in any way I can imagine.

    IMO -Most houses in FL are on a concrete slab - the water table is too high for a crawl space or basement. Attics are good storage if your item can withstand temps of 140- it’s still very hot and humid now- there is absolutely no way I would ever venture into that preserve for a hike - while I don’t doubt something important is in there I’m struggling with believing it’s an alive BL- time will tell I guess. Something is up ..

    Have canine officers actually not gone into the parents' house yet? I thought dogs had been there.

    Is there any way one could sneak into his house at night without being spotted?
    From the rear, I mean.
    Here's a tweet from earlier with a front view of the house.
    Any way to get up a 3D image of the rear?
    I keep returning to the house, I find the swampland to be an unforgiving environment.

    Is there going to be an 'event', a real one at that house?

    Here's front image

    so he left them, doesn't mean he did not take a burner phone... I see him as someone who likes attention and he will certainly be watching and listening , he is a needs to know guy, mr. snoopy... I betcha he has a phone with him its just not his phone. yep yep

    Not to get too graphic, but perhaps to carry a rope or some other instrument to implement in that act.

    A poster was asking earlier (apologies I can't remember who!) about when the Petito family started calling the Laundries. Here is what the parents said in an MSM interview.

    Interviewer
    Did you ever reach out to her and say "Can you please help me find my daughter?"

    Gabby's mum
    Yes I reached out to her on Friday the 9th or the 10th, I'm sorry. I texted her "I'm worried about the kids, I haven't heard from them" and I got nothing. Called, left messages got nothing.

    Interviewer
    She won't even call you back?

    Gabby's mum
    Nope.

    Interviewer
    And Joe you and Tara, you've reached out and they won't call you back?

    Gabby's dad
    We've called on the 10th, I can't tell you how many times. We sent text messages "We're worried", "We're calling the police".

    I mean if someone texted me that they're calling the police because they can't find my son, I'm gonna drop whatever I'm doing to call back. I guess it's evident how they run their household.

    Gabby's step-mum
    She knew her son was home that time when we were texting her. At that point we didn't know that he was home.

    So it was the 10th they called and texted, which was right before they contacted the police to report Gabby missing.

    Is this news in Scotland?
    Shocking to me that it would be!

    Of course. Like maybe only his parents. It would be foolish to leave any digital trail.

    You could carry those things in a small backpack, not one so large it needed hip straps to disperse the weight.

    Also, something to consider: the neighbors and other witnesses who may have had their stories publicly told more recently - they may have done those interviews last week. But the media has only so much time for coverage and they will tend to air the most exciting/breaking/sensational stuff first. Then, when there is a lull in activity, that's when other less 'urgent' B-roll accounts might get published. Also, they may have to be cleared by LE first too, before being allowed to speak out.

    I guess what I am trying to say is that the witnesses don't always have a say in when their interviews get published (unless, of course, you are relaying your story yourself on Tik Tok or other SM platforms).
