A pedestrian in Tennessee claimed he saw Brian Laundry, wanted by the FBI, near the Appalachian Trail near the North Carolina border on Saturday.
Denise Davis, who spoke to several news outlets over the weekend, said she saw a man, resembling Laundry, driving a white pickup truck in the area on Saturday at about 12:30 p.m. ET.

“There’s no doubt about it. It was Brian Laundry I was just talking to. One hundred percent. There’s no doubt in my mind,” Davis told Fox News, adding that he called the FBI twice more. The same called 911 operators in North Carolina and Tennessee.
Davis said he and several other passengers were about to leave a car near the Appalachian Trail and were going to sleep at the trailhead. When Davis tried to make a U-turn, he saw a white truck flashing its headlights to indicate that he might complete the U-turn, he recalled.
Then the person in the car took his hand out of the window.

The driver told Davis that he was lost and was attempting to go to California after a fight with his girlfriend.
“He said that I and my girlfriend had a fight, and man, I love him, and he called me, and I have to go to California to see him,” Davis told the outlet, adding that he told the driver to take Interstate 40. asked for the west. He said the driver told him he would like to live on Waterville Road near the Pigeon River.
After talking to the man, Davis wondered whether the driver was laundry, who appeared to be exhausted or on drugs.
“So I got to the next place where I was going to park and I opened my phone and I started looking at pictures. And when I was talking to her what really stood out to me: her very loaded But there was short, very thick, black, black beard and mustache. And so when I parked my car and I took a picture of her on the internet… and she had a beard and a mustache,” Davis said.
Davis also said that Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s family contacted him and sent him an “audio file” of “the sound of laundry” which was “what I heard,” referring to the driver.
Pettito was officially reported missing by her family on September 11 and was later found dead in Wyoming. The manner of his death was ruled a murder by a local coroner.
She and Laundry traveled cross-country before returning without Pettito to their home in North Port, Florida. Her parents told her that the laundry had gone missing on September 14.
