The FBI located a number of Brian Laundrie’s items on a trail in Florida Wednesday after the his family told law enforcement about an outdoor spot he frequented.

According to multiple reports, a coroner is headed to the area. Law enforcement officials found partial human remains in the Carlton Reserve on Wednesday, according to NBC News.

NBC reports:

“The Sarasota County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed it had been called to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park by police Wednesday afternoon. The environmental park connects to the Carlton Reserve.

According to Pete Williams with NBC News, law enforcement officials say “what appears to be partial human remains” were found in an area that was previously underwater. The search for Laundrie has been focused on the environmental park and connected reserve for more than a month now. Search crews had previously cited difficulties maneuvering through the massive area due to some sections being underwater.”

Laundrie, 23, is considered a person of interest in the homicide of Gabby Petito, 22, who a Wyoming medical examiner ruled last week died by strangulation after going missing last summer. After Petito’s family reported her missing, Laundrie himself went missing after refusing to cooperate with investigators.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie, Brian’s parents, informed authorities they were headed to Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port, Fla. to search for their son, family attorney Steven Bertolino said. The FBI and local police went along and quickly uncovered evidence he had been there. No information regarding the contents of the discovery were released.

Shortly after the items were located, the Sarasota County Medical Examiner and a Pasco County Sheriff’s office cadaver dog and multiple spotters were called to the scene.

  1. I knew it would come to this end as soon as he disappeared into that park.
    Murder/Suicide is the most common result of this type of case.
    I feel great compassion and pity for both families in this situation. And bear a great deal of animosity toward anyone who was out protesting the Laundrie family. It’s not fair to do this when you don’t actually know what is going on.

    May God have mercy on his soul.
