Newly 911 audio reveals a caller in Utah claiming that Brian Laundrie hit his fiancé, missing YouTuber Gabby Petito.

The male caller tells a Grant County sheriff that a ‘gentleman’ driving a white van with a Florida license plate slapped a girl inside before the vehicle departed, according to the audio obtained by Fox News.

‘I’m right in the corner of Main Street by Moonflower and we are driving and I’d like to report a domestic dispute,’ the caller says. ‘Florida with a white van – Florida license plate, white van.’

The caller continues that the couple drove off and made a right on Main Street from Moonflower, a seeming reference to the Moonflower Community Cooperative in Moab, where Petito and Laundrie stayed on the night of August 11 and were reportedly seen in a heated fight.

‘We drove by him, a gentleman was slapping the girl,’ the caller says, prompting the sheriff to ask, ‘He was slapping her?’

The audio ends with the caller responding: ‘Yes. And then we stopped. They ran down an up the sidewalk. He proceeded to hit her, hopped in the car and they drove off.’

Not long after the call, Petito and Laundrie were stopped by Moab police officers and recorded in body camera footage. Petito was in tears telling cops that she and Laundrie had ‘been fighting all morning’ and that she ‘was trying to get him to stop telling (her) to calm down’.

The 911 call emerged shortly after FBI agents stormed the North Port, Florida, home of Laundrie’s parents on Monday and declared it a crime scene. The parents were held in an unmarked van outside their home for about an hour before returning to their residence.

Police on Sunday found remains believed to be those of Petito, 22, near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Days earlier, Laundrie vanished from his parents’ home. He used Petito’s van and refused to speak with cops.

Petito and Laundrie started a cross-country road trip from New York in June. Laundrie returned home alone in September and his parents said he left on Tuesday with a backpack and said he was going to Carlton Reserve near Venice, Florida.

Cops no longer believe Laundrie, who has not been charged with a crime, is in the nature reserve.
