Gabby Petito case: Police search for Brian Laundrie in Florida wilderness

From Global News.

Police and FBI agents resumed their search of a swampy Florida wilderness for Gabby Petito’s fiancé on Wednesday, one day after the body found in a Wyoming national park was identified as the 22-year-old Florida woman and her death determined to be a homicide.

Police have described Laundrie, 23, as a "person of interest" in the case which has captivated Americans since Petito’s family reported her missing on Sept. 11. Ten days earlier, Laundrie had returned home to North Port, Florida, without Petito from a cross-country road trip they had embarked on together and documented in social media posts.

Laundrie has not been seen since Sept. 14, when he purportedly left his family’s home, which was also shared with Petito, in North Port with plans to hike alone in the nearby Carlton Reserve wilderness area in Florida.

North Port police say they learned from Laundrie’s family only on Friday that he had been gone for three days.
