Police Return to Laundrie Residence as Parents Travel Home From Orlando: Report

Florida police were reportedly spotted outside the home of Brian Laundrie and his parents on Thursday afternoon.

Family attorney Steven Bertolino told Fox News that Brian Laundrie’s parents, Christopher and Roberta Laundrie, are on their way back home to North Port from Orlando. It is not immediately known why North Port police are back at the family’s house.

It is also unclear why the Laundries traveled to Orlando on Thursday, but Bertolino told Fox News that their trip had “nothing to do” with law enforcement.

On Sunday, the body of Brian Laundrie’s girlfriend, Gabrielle Petito, 22, was discovered at the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. An autopsy conducted on Tuesday determined her preliminary manner of death was a homicide.

Brian Laundrie, 23, has been unaccounted for since leaving his parents’ home on September 14. His parents told police that he went to the Carlton Reserve, a 24,000-acre preserve in Sarasota County, Florida; they waited three days to tell investigators that he had not returned home.

Police’s search for Brian Laundrie at the nature preserve entered its fifth day on Thursday. While he is considered a person of interest in this case, he has not been criminally charged in connection with Petito’s death.
