Miranda Baker claims she met Brian Laundrie while hitchhiking in Grand Teton National Park on TikTok.


The harrowing disappearance of Youtuber and van-life blogger Gabby Petitio has continued to concern the nation, but new evidence has come to light regarding the whereabouts of her recently disappeared fiancé, Brian Laundrie. Laundrie, 23, was declared a person of interest early into the case after he returned to his family home in Florida without Gabby.

New evidence in the case surfaced when TikTok user Miranda Baker said she and her boyfriend had picked up Laundrie hitchhiking by himself on Aug. 29, 2021. Here’s everything we know about the content of her TikToks and what it means for the case.
