NORTH PORT, Fla. (WFLA) – Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino told 8 Side of You a phone was purchased on September 4 and Brian opened an account with AT&T for that phone.

Bertolino says Brian left the phone at home the day he went to compete in Carlton Reserve ten days later. The FBI has a phone.

When asked if Laundrie had a cell phone heading west with Petito, Bertolino told 8 On Your Side he did not know.

According to public records obtained by 8 On Your Side, Brian Laundrie’s mother looked at the campground at Fort De Soto Park on September 6. Records of people registering the camp show Roberta Laundrie viewed in “Site 001-Waterfront” between September 6 and Sept. 8.

A spokesman for the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says they provided a video to watch from the camp to the FBI Tuesday.

The FBI is still searching for Carlton Reserve and search teams are looking for water sources.

Not far from that place, the memory of Gabby Petito is growing. People come from all over the world and come to pay.

“We have to keep running because in the end, he will be available,” said Ashley Sindaco. “It’s just a reflection of how someone who has experienced it left the organization and the whole of America.”

A small memorial is also growing in Petito’s Laundrie home. Two protesters returned again on Wednesday.

“This is a good reminder to the family that they should come forward and say something,” said Sindaco.

The FBI has not released the intelligence video from Fort De Soto. The spokesman said they were not addressing the specific questions about the investigation.
