Authorities said Tuesday that they would resume their search for Gabby Petito’s Fiancee, Brian Laundrie, a day after they said they had exhausted all avenues in finding him.
Along with several law enforcement agencies, the FBI will comb the Carlton Reserve, where 23-year-old Brian Laundrie’s parents said he went for a hike a week ago but never returned.
Josh Taylor from the North Port Police Department said, “An aerial search of the 25,000-acre preserve on Monday yielded nothing. We must press on.”
Taylor added that the Carlton Reserve, located near the Laundrie home, is an unforgiving environment.
It is currently waist-deep in water in many areas,” Taylor said.
Search for Brian Laundrie will resume Tuesday in the Carlton Reserve, Venice side. We join the FBI in asking for continued public assistance by sharing any information through the tip lines 1-800-CALL FBI or https://t.co/vlIagGIoHc— North Port Police (@NorthPortPolice) September 21, 2021
“This is dangerous work for the search crews as they are wading through gator and snake-infested swamps and flooded hiking and biking trails.”
Laundrie’s family has reported him missing since Friday. He was named a person of interest in Gabby Petito’s disappearance.
