A Louisiana man believes he spoke with Brian Laundrie near Yellowstone National Park days before Gabby Petito’s disappearance. Hunter Mannies, who was traveling around the country in late August, described an “extremely uncomfortable” interaction with a man who looked like Laundrie and introduced himself as “Brian” at a local bar.
“It was an odd encounter,” Mannies said on “Fox & Friends”, noting that he didn’t know who Laundrie was at the time, as it was before Petito disappeared.
Mannies was traveling with a friend through Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. The pair stopped at a bar in West Yellowstone, Montana, after visiting the Tetons.
“There was a guy by himself at the end of the bar,” Mannies said. “We really didn’t pay him much attention until he got kind of – he just seemed overly invested in our conversation and eventually ended up speaking up.”
