Gabby Petito’s family have reportedly said they believe Brian Laundrie is still alive because ‘he’s too cowardly to kill himself’.
Speaking to Dr. Phil in a preview clip for an upcoming interview, Gabby’s father, Joe, said: “He is a coward. I would use some other words but I can’t use them on this show.

“Anyone who lived in that house is a coward. They don’t know how to stand up for their actions.”
Gabby’s mother, Nichole, also appeared in the interview alongside the vlogger’s stepfather, Jim, who claim they’ve been trying to contact the Laundrie family since early September.
Jim said: “We actually thought they were both missing at that time.”
The stepfather claimed he texted the family, saying: “I’m going to call the police, just letting you know, because we have no idea.”
He continued: “A normal parent when you text someone that [you] are going to call the cops because you can’t find your child, they would reply.
“No response. Nothing.”
Nichole then emotionally told Dr. Phil that, at that point, she had a ‘feeling’ her daughter was gone.
She said: “I didn’t want to admit it, but I felt it on the night I found out the van was in Florida.
“I felt in my heart that she was gone.”
When Dr. Phil asked if the family had any words for Laundrie, they all said: “Turn yourself in.”
Taro Petito, the YouTuber’s stepmother, added: “If you truly loved her, you should turn yourself in.”
