Articles of clothing belonging to Brian Laundrie found in Florida nature reserve

Some articles belonging to Brian Laundrie have been discovered at a Florida nature park where authorities have searched for the fugitive, the lawyer for the family said Wednesday.

Laundie’s parents went Wednesday to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, where the items were found, lawyer Steven Bertolino said.

“Chris and Roberta went to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park this morning to search for brian,” he said in a statement. “The FBI and NPPD were informed last night of Brian’s parents’ intentions and they met Chris and Roberta there this morning.

“After a brief search off a trail that Brian frequented some articles belonging to Brian were found. As of now law enforcement is conducting a more thorough search of tyat area,” Bertolino added.

The find was made after the heavily wooded reserve, which had been closed to the public late last month for the FBI-led search, reopened, the city of North Port announced on Twitter on Tuesday.

The neighboring 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve, where authorities have also been searching for the fugitive, remains closed to the public, according to the Sarasota County website.
