Brian Laundrie reward of $20,000 issued by law firm as Gabby Petito's 'neighbor' offers $5K cash begging for tips

A TAMPA Bay law firm is offering a $20,000 reward to the first person who provides information that leads directly to finding Brian Laundrie.

The offer comes on a same day that a separate $5,000 reward for similar information was reportedly put up by an individual who described the Petito family as his "neighbor."

A warrant was issued for Laundrie's arrest on Thursday, as the suspected homicide case involving his fiancee Gabby Petito grips the nation.

Petito and Laundrie were in the middle of a four-month-long trip across America when Laundrie returned to his parents' Florida home on September 1 without Petito, 22.

A body discovered in a Wyoming campsite on Sunday was later confirmed to be Petito's.


Laundrie, however, has not been heard from since last Tuesday, and officers have been searching the Carlton Reserve in Florida, after his family told authorities that their son had left to go hike.

On Thursday, Boohoff Law, P.A. released a statement relating to its reward.

The statement read: "Boohoff Law, P.A. is offering $20,000 for information leading directly to the exact whereabouts of missing person Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the case of 22-year-old Gabrielle 'Gabby' Petito."

The stipulations included: "A reward will be paid once the investigating law enforcement agency supplies Boohoff Law written verification that a tip helped lead to locating Brian Laundrie.

"The authorized reward will remain open for two months starting from the receipt of the tip by the investigating law enforcement.

"Only one reward is offered. This reward is offered to the first person to supply information leading directly to the exact whereabouts of missing person Brian Laundrie. This reward cannot be split."

Separately, Jerry W. Torres, reportedly a retired Green Beret, released a video to stay that he and his daughter were willing to provide a $5,000 for any tips leading to an arrest.

Torres said in the video: "I cannot imagine the deep loss and sadness our neighbor, the family of Gabby Petito, is feeling right now.

"Please help our neighbor, the Petito family, by reporting anything related to the whereabouts of the person of interest, Brain Laundrie…"

His tweet read: "My daughter and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of Gabby Petito. We are offering a reward of $5000 for tips leading to an arrest."
