Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida Nature Reserve Enters Sixth Day

The sixth day of searching in Florida’s Carlton Reserve for Brian Laundrie commenced on Friday morning, September 24, after the FBI issued a warrant for his arrest related to the death of Gabby Petito and asked the public for information.

Video shared by North Port Police Department Public Information Officer Josh Taylor shows the conditions during Friday’s search.

Officials used ATVs and swamp buggies to traverse the difficult terrain. Specialized dive teams were called in to search bodies of water, the Sarasota Sheriff said.

The FBI joined the search for Laundrie after authorities found Petito’s body in the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. Her death was determined to be a homicide, the FBI said in a statement.

A federal warrant was issued for Laundrie’s arrest on September 22, the FBI announced, “pursuant to a Federal Grand Jury indictment related to Mr Laundrie’s activities following the death of Gabrielle Petito.”
