    It seems to me they're going in real low-key today. Not an overwhelming amount of LE presence and only CL and one other person are on foot looking. I think they're trying not to spook BL and make it seem more like they're there to help than that they are hunting him. I think the FBI probably wants it quiet so they can hear movement and also so that BL can hear his dad calling him.

    Richard Frankel, a former FBI special agent in charge, and Gil Alba, a former NYPD major case squad detective, join the show to discuss the manhunt for Brian Laundrie, including distinct features he has that people should look out for.

    Plus, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Welner talks about the psychology behind being on the run and what Laundrie’s parents might be thinking.

    So the mom called on the 10th (per the timeline).... after watching the Dr Phil episode, IIRC Gabbys dad called the parents before they called law enforcement to let them know they were calling law enforcement.

    Its possible that SB and the Laundries have come to the conclusion they need a change in strategy. None of them knew the world would be watching or a tsunami of scrutiny would befall them. SB may be feeling heat from the New York Bar Association, or has suddenly realized, the horse is out of the barn and too far to call back. He's lost total control. He's calling the shots while the Laundries take the heat. Maybe his clients demanded a better plan.
    Anyway, the family Laundrie is no longer backing away from LE (why they did in the first place is a mystery), and are now foisting themselves on LE. An overnight flip-flop.
    I believe we're witnessing SB "rehabilitating" his clients: making them look more cooperative, more concerned, more human. Its damage control, a legal maneuver.

    Is no one else completely disturbed by the fact that after 3weeks of BL missing, searches, and air coverage, on the first day CL shows any active involvement in finding his son, that there is no live helicopter coverage?

    Are choppers too loud for CL to yell to son?
    Did someone make a stipulation about video?
    Did LE restrict airspace?

    I thought this was clarified a few days ago that she never did receive any texts or calls and that Joe Petito confirmed he didn't contact Cassie after all? I need to dig a little to find it but I believe i saw this.

    If there was anyone sleeping in that van, it would have been Gabby. That van is not big enough to fit both with the way they had it configured. This is a really small van.

    I would imagine both were taking their footwear off if they were sitting in the back of the van, but again, this is a small vehicle. Even Gabby couldn't sit upright in that van as shown in pictures of her in the back.

    If Gabby was about cleanliness should would clean off her shoes and bring them inside, not thrown them out on the ground. That's a guy thing, but BL liked being barefooted so he brought in dirt with dirty feet.

    I have never stated conclusively whether or not they knew before the phone calls. I have only said I can easily see a scenario that they didn't know until the started getting messages from GP's parents and asked BL about it before they returned the call. And then the bottom fell out of their lives when BL told them the truth. From that moment on, nothing is normal. I see no inconsistency in my statement

    She may have, but she can't share everything per FBI requests like she had mentioned. We may never know. JMO.

    If those were his sandals, maybe they are evidence...maybe there was blood on them or they were all wet from crossing the stream. Wonder if they were disposed of or came home with him...or if they were really his. jmo Miranda Baker said he had hiking boots on when she picked him up...maybe he took the sandals off to put boots on the get out of Dodge. jmo

    JB from WFLA said on the live stream that the "decision was made" to not send the helicopter back up because of "resource constraints." He didn't say this directly but strongly hinted they don't want to spend the money when there isn't news breaking.

    Personally I would think they could look at their streaming views and related ad revenue and finance the helicopter if only for the views. JMO though and no one asked me
