Brian Laundrie, missing 20-year-old biology major, did not contact lawyer Baez after his parents tried to hire him, report says

Brian Laundrie’s parents have not hired Casey Anthony’s lawyer, Jose Baez, in the past month despite rumors swirling about an attempt to pay him, according to The Florida Times-Union. Laundrie, a 20-year-old biology major at Valencia College, went missing Oct. 7 from his parent’s Kingsland, Ga., home. He was reported missing by his parents, Dennis and Lori Laundrie, who said that he had stopped calling them and his

roommates and did not return a text message after 10 p.m. the night before. He was last seen leaving a party with friends, but their phone calls were not returned and he did not appear to have a ride home, according to the Laundries. The sheriff’s office also stated that Laundrie was out of contact and not returning messages from friends and family. Laundrie has not been charged with a crime at this time. For now,

authorities will focus on “testing, crime scene investigation and finding Brian Laundrie” in a real-time search on Monday, an official told reporters. The sheriff’s office has set up a hotline for families or people to call with any information that may help in the case: 678-656-5656. Laundrie had been living in Fort Valley, Ga., for the past year and a half, according to his parents. The Laundries told the newspaper

that they hired Baez for free, but that it is unknown whether he was paid. From the Times-Union: Laundrie’s parents have spoken to Michael Brockert, who is representing Anthony. Baez sent a text message on Thursday saying that he would do anything to help Laundrie. Laundrie’s parents received the text from Baez Thursday night. “Just to say you sent me a text and we will do anything we can to help Brian in this,” Baez

wrote. He added that Laundrie should not be worried, adding: “People will believe you when you are in your right mind, so everything will take care of itself.”
