Is this Brian Laundrie on a North Florida trail cam?

Where is “person-of-interest” Brian Laundrie? The FBI and Florida law enforcement have no idea where the fugitive is despite getting hundreds of leads.
An autopsy confirms that the body found in Wyoming is indeed that of 22-year-old Gabby Petito and that she was murdered.
Meanwhile, a massive manhunt is underway in Florida for her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie.
Laundrie was allegedly last seen last Tuesday when his family says he went for a hike in a 25,000 acre nature preserve near his North Port home.
There was a potential siting of Laundrie on a trail cam in northern Florida as well.
Sam Bass says he saw a man fitting Brian’s description on his trail camera set up in the wilderness in Baker, FL early Monday morning and he alerted the authorities.
Bass’ deer camera footage shows a man resembling Laundrie walking with a backpack through the woods.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has not identified the person on the trail camera as Laundrie, but they are investigating the tip.
Cops searched nearby farmlands and the area where the image was taken extensively with a drone and didn’t find anything, or anyone, of interest.
In a statement, cops said, “There are no known possible past or current connections between Laundrie and anyone in this area at this time to follow up on.”
Final autopsy results are still pending as is the cause of death for Petito. Officials have officially declared her death a homicide and Laundrie a “person-of-interest.”
