Officials in Florida Search for Brian Laundrie Amid 'Unforgiving Terrain'

Authorities continued the search for Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito, on land and by air in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, Florida, on September 21.

North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor shared video of the “unforgiving terrain” in the reserve on Tuesday morning.

The FBI joined the search for Laundrie after authorities confirmed on September 19 that a body had been found “consistent with the description” of Petito in the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.

Petito was first reported missing on September 11, 10 days after Laundrie returned home from their cross-country road trip without her. Laundrie has not been seen since September 13, according to reports. Credit: Josh Taylor via Storyful
