Law enforcement agents have arrived to the home of Brian Laundrie and his parents in North Port, Florida, on Thursday.
News Nation Now reporter Brian Entin, who is on the scene, said on Twitter early Thursday afternoon that a police presence was at the Laundrie residence, more than two weeks after Laundrie’s parents said they last saw him. Entin said in a livestream that FBI agents had gone inside the home, where Laundrie and his now-deceased girlfriend lived before they set off for a cross-country road trip this summer. Laundrie returned on September 1 without Petito, who was found dead of an apparent homicide in Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming on September 19.

“Two agents, one carrying a brown bag, went in the house,” Entin said on the livestream.
It is not yet known what is inside the bag or if it is connected to the ongoing manhunt for Laundrie, who is a person of interest in Petito’s disappearance. He is also subject to a federal warrant on charges that he fraudulently accessed funds from another person’s bank account for an amount over $1,000.
This is a developing story.
