A couple believes a selfie captured Brian Laundrie on a camping trip with his family over Labor Day weekend. 

NORTH PORT, Fla. — Two weeks into the search for Brian Laundrie, the man named a “person of interest” in the disappearance of his 22-year-old girlfriend Gabby Petito, ABC News has learned that Laundrie had bought a new cellphone after returning home from his cross-country trip without Petito.

Laundrie left a new cellphone at home before he went for a hike in the Carlton Reserve on Sept. 14, Laundrie family attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed to ABC News.

The phone was purchased on Sept. 4, Bertolino said, three days after Laundrie returned to his home in North Port from a cross-country trip. Laundrie opened an account with AT&T and the phone wasn’t a burner, Bertolino said.

The FBI now has the phone, according to Bertolino. The FBI had no comment to ABC News.
Petito went missing on a cross-country trip, and her parents, who live in Long Island, New York, reported her missing on Sept. 11 after not hearing from her for two weeks. Authorities confirmed Sept. 21 that her body was discovered in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.
