The unnamed individual, who goes by the username @notbrianlaundrie on the video sharing platform, has uploaded several videos of himself speaking about the unfortunate similarities.
Brian Laundrie has been marked as a person of interest after his fiancée’s suspicious death. The TikToker looks similar to the balding, bearded suspect and also shares the same muscular build.
The unnamed man has gained popularity online after a person mistook the gentleman, in a nightclub, for Brian Laundrie.
As the FBI continues to search for Laundrie, several police departments across the country have been receiving tips regarding the whereabouts of the 23-year-old person of interest.
Laundrie was last seen on September 14, and has been on the run since then.

"I'm flying across the country tomorrow for my cousin's wedding, and it's a pretty long flight. So if you have any tips for me on how not to get attacked or accused of being this guy, get at me."
As the lookalike took part in the journey, the man was seen wearing sunglasses, a large face mask and a hat to make sure he wouldn't get called out as Brian Laundrie.

Some reactions to the resemblance included:
"The worst time to be a doppelganger.”
Another person has stated that they feel “nervous” for the TikToker. A comment read:
