TWO women claiming to be neighbors of Brian Laundrie's parents have been captured on film hammer a sign to remember Gabby Petito into the Laundries' front lawn.
The sign featured a photo of a smiling Gabby and included the caption, "Remember me? Gabby Petito. Roberta and Chris I once lived with you!”
The video was posted by NewNationNow correspondent Brian Entin, who was outside the Laundrie house in Florida on Friday night.
After hammering the sign into the ground, one woman pointed to the Laundries' house and said, "Hopefully they can see it," before walking away.
Brian Laundrie, 23, is currently missing, after his fiancee, Petito, 22, was discovered dead in a Wyoming campsite last month.
On Thursday, Laundrie's father, Chris, 62, was seen smiling with an FBI agent as he helped with the search for his son in a Florida swamp.
Laundrie and Petito's case has gripped the nation over recent weeks.
The couple were in the middle of a four-month-long trip across America when Laundrie returned to his parents' Florida home alone on September 1, driving the couple's 2012 white Ford Transit van.
Petito was reported missing by her parents on September 11, and her body was later discovered in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
Laundrie is currently a person of interest for authorities, with online sleuths circulating far-reaching theories regarding his whereabouts.

Brian's parents reported him missing on September 17, two days before Petito's body was discovered.
On Friday, a report claimed law enforcement officials had said they did "everything they could" to keep an eye on Laundrie before his disappearance last month.
But online sleuths were not happy with this response, pointing out how authorities said they knew where Laundrie was days after he reportedly went missing.
Evan Donovan, a reporter with WFLA News in Florida, tweeted that at a September 16 news conference, a reporter asked authorities: "Do you know where Brian Laundrie is right now?"
According to Donovan's recollection, the North Port Police Chief answered, "Yes."
However, a day after the chief's reported comments, Laundrie's family told cops he had been missing since earlier that week.
The Laundries reportedly told authorities that Brian went on a hike on September 13 and never returned.
Donovan's tweet received a series of replies from users slamming the cops' approach, with some claiming they "let him get away."
PERSON OF INTEREST
On Thursday, police spokesperson Josh Taylor had told CNN’s Randi Kaye that police in North Port, Florida, were surveilling Laundrie as best as they legally could before he vanished.
Laundrie has since been declared a person of interest by police as they investigate the circumstances behind Gabby's disappearance.
The 23-year-old has not been named as a suspect.
On September 23, the FBI issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie after he "knowingly and with intent to defraud" used a bank card that was later revealed to be Petito's.
Following Laundrie's disappearance, authorities focused their search on an area of Florida swampland.
