Laundry’s parents, Chris and Roberta Laundry, told the FBI and local law enforcement Tuesday night that they were going to the Miyakachi Creek Ecological Park, not far from the family’s home in North Port, to look for him Wednesday morning. The family’s attorney, Stephen Perolino, told CNN that police joined them on Wednesday morning.
Bertolino said after a brief search next to a walking path that Landry frequented, the family and police found “some things” of his. The Sarasota County medical examination team, including a dog’s body, were called to the scene. According to NBC News, human remains were also found near the items. Many media are talking about “partial” remains.
Later in the day, an FBI spokesperson confirmed that “what appears to be human remains” were found near personal items such as a backpack and notebook by Brian Laundry. More forensic analysis is needed. According to the FBI, it was the place where everything was found underwater until recently.

“Chris and Roberta Laundry were at the reserve earlier today when human remains and some of Brian’s belongings were found in an area where they initially reported to law enforcement that Brian might be,” attorney Bertolino said. “Chris and Roberta will wait for the forensic identification of the human remains before providing further comments.”
Forensic investigations can take several days. The US aviation authority has issued a temporary no-fly zone over the park. No planes, helicopters or drones are allowed to fly over the park.
Gabe Pettito, 22-year-old influencer and vlogger, and her boyfriend Brian Laundry (23) set out on a road trip across the US in early July. The trip was to “really get to know each other” before they tied the knot. Although at first everything went smoothly, gradually the couple got into an argument. And more and more intense. On August 12, the police had to intervene.
At the beginning of September, Laundry left home alone, after a few days, Pettito was reported missing by her parents. At first the young man refused to cooperate in the investigation, since September 13 he himself is missing. A few days later, the body of his girlfriend was found lifeless in a conservation area in Wyoming. The young woman was clearly killed by force.
An extensive search was also launched for Brian Laundry, who was considered a “person of interest” in the case. The searches mainly focused on Carlton Reserve, a nearly 10,000-acre preserve in Florida, and the nearby Miyakachi Creek Ecological Park.
