About 30 minutes after the initial call, North Port police tweeted about the incident, saying the 911 caller was anonymous.
The manhunt continues for Brian Laundrie, who fled his home on September 14, three days after his girlfriend Gabby Petito was reported missing and nearly two weeks after he came back alone from their cross-country van trip. Petito’s body was found Sunday in a remote camping area in Wyoming. An autopsy determined she was murdered.
While Laundrie has not been named a suspect in his girlfriend’s death, he has been indicted on bank fraud charges for using her debit card and PIN number to take out more than $1,000 from her accounts after she was killed. A federal arrest warrant has been issued.
