Is anyone else following this news story?

Fucking hell I hope she is found. So many things about the timeline don't add up.

Yes I'm following it. I think it all looks a bit suspicious...

I saw the story on my news feed this morning and don’t really understand what’s gone on. She was with her boyfriend travelling in Utah (?), then she disappeared, now he’s driven home with their van just saying “I hope she’s found” ???? It’s so weird. It certainly seems like he’d be the most likely person to help find her or know what happened to her, and now he’s all the way across the country, almost shrugging it off??? So strange.

I read on Instagram from a friend of hers that they had a falling out and he drove off and left her.

But it's sounding weirder than that. I can't see why he'd hire an attorney and refuse to speak to the police if they just fell out.

His comment saying he hopes she is found and comes home is weird too.

Even if they'd split up, surely he still cares about her as a human being. Not cooperating with law enforcement is often a huge red flag.
I really hope he hasn't caused harm to her, and I hope too that his family aren't covering up for him.
My heart goes out to Gabby's family, and I hope she's found safe and well as soon as possible.
If the ex-boyfriend is innocent, I hope it's proved beyond all reasonable doubt.
What do you think about it?

Unfortunately this sort of thing often ends in a similar manner.

I think the chances of her being found alive are nil.

I think the chances that the boyfriend is innocent are also nil.

The police footage of her in a state talking about their fight was hard to watch. She said he gets angry at her ocd.

Seesawmummadaw Sat 18-Sep-21 03:08:54

I hadn’t realised that Brian Laundrie is now missing too.

Yes.
I hope we are wrong but I don't think there is much chance of that.

Well, I hadn't heard of this but it seems likely she's dead and you don't need cluedo to work it out...

Yep.

What a bizarre news story. I don't imagine anyone is expecting a happy ending, sadly.

Longdistance Sat 18-Sep-21 05:21:59

It doesn’t take a genius to work out what happened. Same story over and over again.

arcof Sat 18-Sep-21 05:34:14

I hear he's now not been seen by his family since Tuesday, great work by the cops (not)

FlowerTink Sat 18-Sep-21 08:33:56

Brian is missing now too? I thought his getting a lawyer rather than reporting her missing and then his statement about her was strange. I notice her family think he's gone on the run

"All of Gabby's family want the world to know that Brian is not missing, he is hiding. Gabby is missing," the statement read.

I've been following this for the past couple days. I feel so bad for Gabby's family. Are US police really that thick? I know Brian was only a "person of interest" so they probably couldn't legally order him not to leave his home, but at least they could have had his house under 24/7 surveillance and followed him when he left his house to go to the Florida nature reserve (as he claimed)? How could the police just let the key witness vanish like this?

gardeninggirl68 Sun 19-Sep-21 15:58:43

vigilantes have his house under surveillance...no need for police it seems! shouting and heckling his family

who knows whats happened here but I dont automatically feel he's responsible.

He's not missing, he's hiding.

VladmirsPoutine Sun 19-Sep-21 16:04:04

Didn't they initially document their 'journey' together on Instagram too?

I hate to say it but I reckon someone somewhere is going to turn this whole tragedy into a film.

gardeninggirl68 Sun 19-Sep-21 16:14:03

a film? interesting angle
