The search for Brian Laundrie at a Florida wildlife preserve entered its fifth day on Thursday.
Fox News reported that a swamp buggy is being used to look for Laundrie, 23, at the Carlton Reserve, a 24,000-acre preserve in Sarasota County. Laundrie has not been seen or heard from since apparently leaving his parents’ North Port home on September 14 — though his parents waited three days to report his disappearance.
On Sunday, Petito’s body was discovered in the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. An autopsy that was conducted on Tuesday determined her preliminary manner of death was a homicide.
While Laundrie is considered a person of interest in this case, he has not been criminally charged in connection with Petito’s death.
