The mom says they broke off the engagement at least. Even though most of the media reported them as engaged. The mom said a bunch of things that are missing from most reports. I know you can find her comments in a daily mail article.
She mentions not to look for the van because she’s no longer with the van. Why would she say something so obvious when we know he drove it back? Unless she means he left her with the van sooner than the 25th. I don’t actually see any evidence of the two being together after their argument on the 12th. He posted solo to Instagram on the 13th. Her final two posts after that day show the van in one but the pics are dated July and neither of her last two posts have location tags.
The mother and father mention FaceTime and texting her and the media says “the couple said they were leaving SLC…” but there is actually no mention of Brian or the van. Around the 19th father mentions she had no electricity where she was staying and he ordered food… for her.
Her lone van life video was posted to the pre-existing YouTube channel tied to her email address on the 19th. One of the clips shows her struggling with a tent in the rain. She is alone here, no Brian.
The mom says Brian returned to Florida during the road trip in early August. And he moved out items of hers from his parents house and into a storage unit. We know he’s back in Utah with on August 10th. This is a little strange. He must have flown to Florida and back.
The mom received texts until the 30th but isn’t sure it was Abby. Their last exchange was on the 25th via FaceTime. A site she sold stuff on was last active a week ago. Brian probably has access to it though as some of the stuff is his.
The media doesn’t say when Brian drove the van to Florida. The parents didn’t report her missing until 9/11. Why wait two weeks without contact to report your daughter missing? The mom texted Briab and his dad on the 10th that she was missing and no response
