  • Brian Laundrie's father was photographed removing a protest sign from his front yard.

  • The New York Post published photos of Chris Laundrie in front of his Florida home on Saturday.

  • Laundrie was reportedly removing a sign that said, "What if this happened to Cassie?"

The father of 23-year-old Brian Laundrie was photographed removing a protest sign from his front yard on Saturday, the New York Post reported.

The outlet published photos showing Chris Laundrie, 62, taking a sign from his lawn that referenced his daughter, Cassie. According to the report, the sign, placed next to a photo of Gabby Petito, said, "What if this happened to Cassie?"

Since her brother disappeared in mid-September, Cassie Laundrie and her family have received death threats resulting in multiple police visits to their home in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, WFLA reported last week, citing police records. Earlier this month, she told protesters on her lawn that she had no idea about Petito's disappearance when she joined her brother and her family at a campground on September 6.

Her brother returned from a cross-country road trip without Petito, his fiancée, on September 1. Petito's mother reported her missing 10 days later, and the police named him a person of interest shortly after.

Authorities have been desperately searching for Brian in Florida's Carlton Reserve since his family reported him missing on September 17. Earlier this month, his father joined law enforcement in the search.

Petito's body was discovered near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on September 19. A Wyoming coroner determined that the cause of death was manual strangulation. Brian has not been charged in connection with her death, but authorities issued an arrest warrant alleging he'd used a debit card without authorization.

Protesters have swarmed the Laundries' home in North Port, where Brian and Petito lived, since the case garnered national media attention. Last week, two protesters were caught on video banging on their door and calling the family "dirty Laundries."
