Brian Laundrie “could be in contact with his parents by writing letters and using CODE WORDS”, speculates ex-fugitive
BRIAN Laundrie could send letters to his parents using code words to escape police capture, according to a former fugitive.
Seth Ferranti spent two years on the run in the early 1990s and was previously on the US Marshals most wanted list.
Although there is no evidence that the laundries are in contact with their son, Ferranti told The Sun “it is entirely possible” for the fugitives to use “letters in the mail” to communicate. with their loved ones.
“It’s a way to maintain communication and let his parents know he’s okay,” Ferranti added.
Ferranti, who disappeared between 1991 and 1993 after facing charges of non-violent drug trafficking, added: “If Brian had spoken to his parents before, they could have chosen code words.”
Chris and Roberta Laudrie only reported their son missing on September 17, telling police they last saw him on September 14.
It later turned out that Laundrie had been missing since September 13 after it was revealed his parents gave the incorrect date he was said to have disappeared from the Carlton reservation.
He had returned home from his cross country trip without his fiancee Gabby Petito on September 1.
Laundry attorney Steven Bertolino told WFLA: “The laundries based the date Brian left on their memories of certain events.”

Brian’s father Chris was pictured picking up his mail on October 8.
There is no evidence to suggest that Brian is still in contact with his parents or that they are helping him escape capture.
The Sun has reached out to the Laundrie family’s attorney for comment. North Port Police said they could not comment on the allegations.
Ferranti said: “They had a lot of time to plan this before he was gone. If he came back and they knew he was in trouble.
“No matter what you do, your parents will always love you.
“Someone else could write to them, it could be on a computer in any FedEx library.
“There are all kinds of ways to go about it and go undetected.
“It seems to me that they had plenty of time to do it”
The former fugitive said he used pay phones when on the run, telling his mother to call the number at a certain time on a certain day while he waited there.
“I found someone in Virginia to pass these numbers on to my mom and gave her a call window.
“I would then stay near the phone booth during those times.
“It might be more difficult now because there aren’t that many payphones.
“But they could easily have found code words and secret messages.
“Even when I was in prison, everything was done in letters and codes were used. You can write anything.”
Online detectives have also speculated that Brian may be writing to his parents.
One of them wrote: “What if your missing son wrote you a letter? “
Ferranti has previously said The Sun Laundrie may be in hiding with friends or a relative.
Gabby’s body was found in a Wyoming national park on September 19.
Laundrie is wanted by the FBI because he allegedly took Gabby Petito’s debit card and spent $ 1,000 to return to Florida without her on September 1.
Petito family attorney Richard Stafford claimed on Tuesday that Brian “stole his credit [debit per warrent] menu.
“He used his credit card to get home, then ran away from the police. “
Laundrie family attorney Bertolino said in a statement on the issuance of the warrant that he was focusing on “activities that took place after Gabby Petito’s death and not related to her actual disappearance.”
“The FBI is focused on locating Brian and when that happens the details of the charges covered by the indictment will be discussed in the appropriate forum,” he added.
Detectives continue to roam the Carlton Preserve while Dog the Bounty Hunter investigates the Fort de Soto campsite.
It is reported that the Laundrie family stayed at the campsite on September 6 – days after returning to the state.
Ferranti added: “A mistake and it’s pretty much done for.
“The police are waiting for this big break. Once they get it, they’ll have you in just about a few days.
“I would say you turn into Brian.”
