ONLINE sleuths want to know what was inside Brian Laundrie's "storage locker" that he allegedly flew home to clean out while he was on a cross-country road trip with his fiancée Gabby Petito.
Laundrie reportedly left Utah and returned to Florida between August 17-23 – days after an incident outside a grocery store in Moab.
The missing fugitive left a motel in Salt Lake City to help his father empty out a storage unit that reportedly contained his and Gabby’s possessions, according to Meaww.
It's reported that the 23-year-old returned to Utah and the couple checked out of the hotel on August 24.
Gabby's mom Nichole Schmidt questioned why Laundrie made the alleged trip.
She claimed that Laundrie's dad had offered to let them keep their belongings at the family home so they wouldn't have to pay for the unit, DailyMail.com reports.
Laundrie's sister Cassie said that he flew back to Florida after August 17 and appeared to confirm that he had a "storage locker".
She didn't know the contents of the locker or its location, but online detectives are eager to find out what was inside.
One online detective tweeted: "So, what was in the locker?"
Another Reddit detective commented: “Dying to know what the hell was so important in that storage locker.”

It's not known why Laundrie returned to Florida and it's unknown if he emptied the "locker".
It comes asCassie begged the fugitive to “come forward” and begged him to “get us out of this horrible mess”.
In an interview with Good Morning America, she said: "I really wish he had come to me first that day with the van because I don't know we'd be here.
"I worry about him. I hope he's ok and then I'm angry and I don't know what to think.
"I'd tell my brother to just come forward and get us out of this horrible mess."
Cassie said Laundrie didn't speak about Gabby during a camping trip in Fort De Soto on September 6.
'COME FORWARD BRIAN'
She told protesters and reporters outside her home that she's "losing her parents".
When asked to clarify her remarks, Cassie said: "They're not talking to us either," followed by "if I knew, I would say, I don't know," when asked why not.
Laundrie remains at large after he was reported missing on September 17.
Gabby Petito’s dad Joe said Laundrie is alive and alleged that he’s “too cowardly to kill himself or come forward”.
He told Dr Phil: “I would use some other words but I can't use them on this show."
Joe also hit out at Brian's parents after they took three days to alert police to the fact their son was missing.
He said that "anyone in that house is a coward," adding: "And they do not know how to stand up for their actions."
Speaking before his daughter's death, Joe told Dr Phil that there were "no red flags" in her relationship with Brian.
He said: "Brian was always respectful, I can't say he wasn't.
"There were no red flags that popped out. Nothing stood in my head and said, listen, this boy is not a good boy. If there were I would have discouraged going on a trip."
'NO RED FLAGS'
Swamp buggies and ATVs continue to scour the vast 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve but cops and FBI agents have yet to find the missing fugitive.
Josh Taylor, a spokesperson for the North Port Police Department, confirmed that the search to find Laundrie remains ongoing.
He told WFLA: “We have consistently been providing support in small groups.”
The FBI made no further comments when approached by the outlet.
Meanwhile, Dog the Bounty Hunter has also joined search efforts as he pledged to find Laundrie before the fugitive’s 24th birthday.
He reportedly found a "makeshift camp" and has turned over "information" to the FBI.
Dog told Fox News: "On Friday we found a makeshift, very primitive camp that had some promising things around it. So we gave gathered up all those things.
"We turned them over yesterday to the FBI. We are now talking to the FBI and working with local law enforcement"
Dog said his personal hotline 833-TELLDOG has been flooded with potential leads.
But, the reality TV star’s daughter Cecily Chapman slammed her father’s participation in the search.
She said her dad should “back off the publicity stunt”.
Cecily told the Sun: “It's just a publicity stunt. That's really what it is. He needs to back off and let the FBI handle it.”
There have been several alleged sightings of Laundrie in other parts of Florida, Alabama, and Mexico, but most potential leads have led to dead ends.
