Laundrie’s parents, Chris and Roberta Laundrie, reported Tuesday night to the FBI and the North Port Police Department that they intended to go to the park Wednesday morning to look for him, the family lawyer Steven Bertolino. Law enforcement met there Wednesday morning, he said.
After a “brief search” for a trail frequented by Laundrie, the family and law enforcement found “some items” that belonged to him, Bertolino said. I would not give further information on which or how many items were found.
Bertolino said law enforcement is now conducting a more thorough investigation of the area.
North Port police declined to comment.
Nearly two months ago, Petito, 22, disappeared while she and Laundrie, 23, were on a road trip through the western United States, documenting their trips on social media. Laundrie returned home to North Point, Florida, where they lived with their parents, without Petito on September 1st.
Unable to contact her, Petito’s family reported her disappearance 10 days later. Laundrie did not want to cooperate with research on his whereabouts and soon after also disappeared and his family told investigators they believed he had gone to a nearby nature reserve.
