And where is Gabby Petito? And other crazy Florida crime stories on The Docket:

The Docket: Deputy Unloads Clip on Florida Man

Protesters have been gathering outside Brian Laundrie’s Florida home holding signs that read: “Speak up!” Laundrie has clammed up and lawyered up and is not talking about the disappearance of his girlfriend, Gabby Petito.

Laundrie returned home to North Port without Petito, 22, but driving her van earlier this month and has refused to cooperate with police after his girlfriend was reported missing by her family.
The sign-carrying protesters gathered outside Laundrie’s home Thursday as they chanted, “Where’s Gabby?,” while others circled the area on golf carts, footage obtained by Fox News shows.
In addition to the “Speak up” sign, other placards read: “Truth always comes out! #Justiceforgabby” and “Would she bring you home?”
Another protest is planned outside the home Friday evening.

“We’re standing up for somebody who’s lost that’s in our city, and we’re a big family in our city, in North Port. And we are definitely going to do whatever we can to help the family find this missing daughter,” one of the protesters told Fox News.

“We all have children. If it were our child, we would want everyone to gather up and help us find our child too. So we’re going to do whatever it takes.”

Petito’s family has accused Laundrie and his relatives of withholding valuable information about her whereabouts after he was named a person of interest by police in her disappearance.

Gabby was last seen nearby at Grand Teton National Park in late August. She’d been on a cross country road trip with her fiancé before being reported missing earlier this month.
