    He's with trained SARs. They would be aware and generally drop 'evidence markers' to denote the place where an item is found for retrieval by LE for processing and fingerprinting.

    Very odd. Since they said Gabby was a homicide victim, can they subpoena her phone records which would include all calls and text messages? So even if he destroyed her phone and his, the records and data would be available to authorities, I hope?

    This! ^^^^
    He must be only working for the parents because if he believed that he would also represent BL, he shouldn't be disclosing a single thing about anything much less texting it to reporters.

    I’ve been a lurker on this forum for many years. My first thought when Gabby was missing was that she was dead, and that BL killed her. After we found out the long delays between when he arrived back in Florida, and then again, long delays when his parents said he went backpacking in the local nature reserve…my thought was his parents were buying time, he needed help, and he is somewhere in South America at this point, and has been for much of this month. Somewhere they don’t extradite from. I hope they find him, I don’t think it will happen…and I hope his parents are charged with obstruction of justice, or similar, if they have assisted him in leaving the country…which is, IMO, don’t come for me, what I think that they did. Does anyone know if BL speaks Spanish?

    Really odd, isn't it... considering he drove it across the country, Gabby's body hadn't been found, and although I think the Petito's were reluctantly calling whoever they could think of, it would make sense..

    Maybe he busted the transmission, or something prosaic ... there is always the ordinary explanation, but... maybe his memories of 'camping' in that van were so terrible he couldn't bear to drive it one mile more.. so sensitive...

    Yes, but for some reason, no auto theft charges have been files, so I think likely there won't be any charges related to the van.

    I know! But they would only share if it helped them. And they're not sharing anything. That kind of makes me think they're not looking for a living fugitive, because they generally would share that.

    I've always felt he'd only be in there if he had committed suicide, IMO. But I was also thinking about planted evidence. Like maybe the Mustang. Could there have been evidence that led LE to search for a "suicidal" or dead BL?

    Today I heard again they were searching "in the water" in the Reserve-whatever that means-it's pretty much underwater these days altogether. But generally if I hear LE is searching "in the water" it generally isn't for a live fugitive. And I just looked at Google News and there are articles going back at least 7 days that talk about using divers in the search. That just doesn't jive with the live person search in my mind.

    Only one problem I see with this is that Dog would have to have an article with BL’s scent on it so the K9’s can alert if it a place he’s been. Since RL and CL didn’t let Dog in when he stopped by I’m assuming he doesn’t have an item from the FBI evidence lock up. IMO. They probably won’t give out evidence to him since neither family involved hired him.

    May have been processes already and nobody drinks a can by holding the base.

    I wonder if Brian drinks that. Would he be careless enough to drop it with a manhunt underway? Dog needs to bag it and have them DNA test it.

    I’m perplexed by Bertolino’s sharing of these details with the media. What’s he up to?
