The parents of missing Brian Laundrie were shadowed by undercover agents Thursday as they broke cover and drove 150 miles to Orlando to meet with an attorney, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal. 

Lawyer Steve Bertolino flew from New York to Florida specifically to meet with Brian’s parents after a federal arrest warrant was issued for the missing 23-year-old on Wednesday.

A convoy of unmarked vehicles first tailed Christopher and Roberta Laundrie as they left their North Port, Florida home and headed towards Orlando earlier this morning. 

In surreal scenes, undercover agents – believed to be with the FBI – followed the couple into the Orlando Public Library on Thursday and hovered in the aisles perusing 80s dance CDs and a Colombian art installation while keeping them under constant surveillance. 

Though it’s not clear what they were doing in the library, it’s now known that the couple met Bertolino in Orlando during their trip.

‘It is my understanding that the arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie is related to activities occurring after the death of Gabby Petito and not related to her actual demise,’ Bertolino told DailyMail.com.

‘The FBI is focusing on locating Brian and when that occurs the specifics of the charges covered under the indictment will be addressed in the proper forum.’

Inside, Christopher, 62, looked agitated and unhappy as he talked on his phone while Roberta, 55, paced up and down in the lobby

On Thursday, the FBI confirmed the the US District Court of Wyoming issued a federal arrest warrant for Brian Laundrie ‘pursuant to a Federal Grand Jury indictment related to Mr. Laundrie’s activities following the death of Gabrielle Petito’ the day before.

Christopher, 62, looked agitated and unhappy as he talked on his phone while Roberta, 55, paced up and down in the lobby, occasionally glancing suspiciously at the plain-clothes operatives. 

They waited inside the library for around 30 minutes, not stopping to look at a single book or display, before ignoring requests to comment from a DailyMail.com reporter and hopping back into their red Dodge Ram truck. 

Moments later the vehicle was spotted entering a downtown Orlando parking garage, attached to a large office building.  

Around an hour later, Christopher and Roberta emerged from the garage and drove home to North Port – tailed the entire way back to their front door by the same convoy of unmarked law enforcement vehicles. 

The couple first set out on the trip earlier Thursday morning after they were seen being escorted by two law enforcement vehicles as they drove through their hometown.

The reason for their visit – a two-hour-and 20-minute drive from their bungalow – was shrouded in mystery until later that evening, when attorney Bertolino confirmed he had met with the couple.

Around an hour later, Christopher and Roberta emerged from the garage and drove home to North Port – tailed by the same convoy of unmarked law enforcement vehicles the entire way back

They were spotted leaving their house at 8:15am before getting into their red Dodge Ram pickup truck and heading in the direction of the local police station on their own. 

Shortly afterwards they were spotted returning to their three-bedroom house on the normally quiet residential road, tailed by a North Port Police SUV and a black Ford 150 believed to be an FBI vehicle.  

Brian’s silver Ford Mustang convertible – which was seized by the FBI in a dramatic raid on the Laundries’ home on Monday – was returned to the house by a tow truck crew when the couple returned from town only to leave again a short while later. 

Christopher and Roberta Laundrie looked solemn has they headed to their pickup truck for the start of the journey to meet Bertolino in Orlando.

Brian Laundrie, 23, who was reported missing last week, remains a person of interest in the disappearance and death of fiancée Gabby Petito 

The development came on day five in the hunt for Brian Laundrie, 23, the fiancé of van-life woman Gabby Petito, 22, who was found dead at a national park in Wyoming on Sunday – eight days after she was reported missing. 

Laundrie is considered a person of interest in her disappearance and death, which has been ruled a homicide. 

Gabby last spoke to her family on August 25 from Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. She had been traveling with Laundrie in the couple’s camper van since July and the two were meant to return home in October.

Laundrie, however, traveled back to his family’s North Port, Florida home on September 1 without Gabby, and refused to speak to authorities about her disappearance.

On Wednesday, neighbors revealed that they had seen Laundrie and his parents packing an ‘attached camper’ used for their long-weekend camping trips after he returned to the home. 

Charlene and William Guthrie claim they saw the Laundries hook up the camper to the back of their pickup truck for a weekend trip away on September 11 – the same day Gabby was reported missing.

FBI agents seized Brian Laundrie’s silver Ford Mustang convertible during a dramatic raid of the family home on Monday. It was returned to the house by a tow truck crew Thursday morning

The family would have returned about two days later as DailyMail.com photos show the camper back in the driveway on September 13.

When police contacted the Guthries, William told them about the family’s trip, noting that it was unusual for Christopher and Roberta to go off in such a small camper with their 23-year-old son.

‘I saw them doing some work. And then when they prepared for their trip, I saw them loading the camper,’ William told Fox News

The Gunthries added that living next to the Laundries has become a nightmare since Gabby and later Laundrie went missing, with police and reporters roaming the neighborhood for nearly a month investigating the case.  

The Laundrie family were initially reluctant to cooperate with the investigation until Brian went missing last week.

Police divers joined the search for Laundrie on Wednesday as more than 50 law enforcement officers from eight agencies continued to comb the 25,000-acre alligator and snake-infested swampland of Carlton Reserve, near the Laundrie home.

Charlene and William Guthrie told Fox they spotted the Laundries leaving for a camping trip just days after Brian Laundrie returned home alone without the missing Gabby Petito

A DailyMail.com image taken on September 13 shows the Laundrie’s camper in their driveway. Neighbors said they hooked it up to the red pickup truck in front of it for a weekend camping trip on September 11 – the day Gabby was reported missing

Laundrie was believed to be hiding out in his parents’ Florida home until September 14, when he purportedly set off on a hike at the local nature reserve. 

His family said they last saw him that day wearing a hiking bag, but did not report him missing until three days later, on September 17.   

His silver Ford Mustang was also found abandoned near the Carlton Reserve with a note requesting it be towed away. 

‘These guys, our law enforcement partners are motivated and they are hungry to find Brian Laundrie,’ North Port Police commander Joe Fussell, who is helping to coordinate the search, said Wednesday. 

‘It’s rough out there, it’s hot, it’s wet. We are trying to cover every acre in this reserve.’ 

North Port Police Department on Wednesday evening tweeted that the search had concluded for the day, and would resume in the morning.

‘The ground search for Brian Laundrie has been halted for the evening. Nothing found,’ they said. 

‘We will be back out Thursday, similar operation.’ 

Earlier on Wednesday there was a flurry of activity as divers were brought to the site, but it later emerged that there was no connection to the case.

The team, made up of about 10 divers, was requested by North Port Police on Wednesday morning, said Sarasota County Sheriff’s office spokesperson Kaitlyn Perez.

‘These divers are specifically trained and very talented in low visibility bodies of water,’ Perez said. 

‘They dive down where you and I can’t see anything at all. They utilize technology and other special equipment to help them get down deep into really deep bodies of water, so they’re out there right now to recover whatever it is that they might find.’
