Water bottle ‘matching one in Gabby Petito pic' that was found near Brian Laundrie's remains is being handed to the FBI

A WATER bottle found near Brian Laundrie's body that is believed to belong to Gabby Petito was turned over to the FBI, cops exclusively told the US Sun.

The charcoal Nalgene water bottle with distinct markings that appears to match one in footage of Gabby was discovered by a TikToker.

The woman, known on TikTok as chroniclesofoliviabackup and @prodxena on Twitter, found the bottle in Myakkaahatchee Park in Florida, near to where Laundrie's remains were discovered.

She was seen in videos moving the bottle with a stick and holding it in a plastic bag.

She said she also found a pair of black ankle socks, but it's unclear if that was turned over to the police.

On Sunday, she posted a video to her social media accounts turning the bottle over to North Port police, which told the US Sun on Monday that it was turned over to the FBI.

At this point, there is no confirmation that it is the same bottle.

The TikToker posted several followup videos after leaving the North Port Police Department chronicling her discovery while searching the park.

She said she received an anonymous tip about a "noose" on a tree near the tent that was set up over where Laundrie's remains were found, but police said it was a broken swing that's been there for years.

Even though that was debunked, the TikToker said she, her mom, her friends and the anonymous tipster searched the area around what police described as a broken swing and found the water under a tree a few hundred yards from where Laundrie's remains were found.


Laundrie's father found his son's skeletal remains on Wednesday – more than five weeks after he vanished on September 13 – in a section of the park that was submerged in floodwaters brought on by hurricanes in the area last month.

Experts told The Sun that even had Brian died on the day he disappeared, that wouldn't be enough time for his remains to fully decompose. One former detective said that mostly likely alligators and other animals had snacked on his corpse.

The remains were identified by dental records, but a cause of death has yet to be determined.

Brian's remains are set to undergo further examination by a forensic anthropologist after an autopsy failed to establish a cause and manner of death last week.

Chris and Roberta Laundire meanwhile, have left their home in North Port to quietly grieve for their son, their attorney Steve Bertolino said.

Their home, where Brian once lived with Gabby Petito, has been flooded by protesters in recent weeks demanding justice for the slain vlogger.

They have also decided to forgo a funeral and cremate their son, the attorney added, though it's not clear when the latter might happen or where his remains might be laid.

The Petito family hasn't spoken publicly since Landrie's remains were found.
