BRIAN Laundrie's parents fear he will hurt himself after he is said to have left home without his wallet or phone, according to a report.
The hunt for Gabby Petitio's missing fiance entered its sixth day on Friday, with search teams scouring a 25,000 acre Florida reserve.
Now it's emerged Chris and Roberta Laundrie are said to fear for their son's safety after he reportedly left their home in North Port without his personal belongings.
A source told CNN that Brian left the items behind after his parents told cops he left their house with his rucksack.
HUNTED BY FBI
North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor said he "cannot give any statement to a timeline at this time."
Laundrie is now being hunted by the FBI after an arrest warrant was issued for the 23-year-old.
He is accused of swiping Gabby’s Capital One debit card and running up a $1,000 balance from August 31 until September 1.
Brian's parents reported their son missing on September 17, and say they last saw him three days earlier.
They say he left their home to go hiking, taking with him his backpack.
Cops found a body in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming last Sunday – a week after Gabby was reported missing by her family.

Footage from Friday shows FBI teams battling through swamps and navigating tricky terrain.
HIDING IN RESERVE?
Search and rescue efforts started last weekend after FBI crews, cops and K9s were deployed to the alligator and snake-infested reserve.
The Carlton Reserve is a 25,000-acre national park and is home to venomous rattlesnakes, alligators, coyotes, and bobcats.
A number of online sleuths claim they have spotted Petito’s fiancé – who was declared a person of interest on September 15.
Norma Jean Jalovec says she gave the 23-year-old a lift on August 29 at around 6:15pm near the Jackson Lake Dam, Wyoming.
The alleged encounter came on the same day that Tiktoker Miranda Baker claimed she gave Laundrie a lift in her jeep.
REMAINS AT LARGE
Laundrie remains at large after being declared a person of interest by cops.
He was accused of “hindering” the investigation after returning to Florida on September 1.
Laundrie immediately hired a lawyer and refused to cooperate with police.
