Search crews in Florida looking for Gabby Petito’s boyfriend Brian Laundrie wrapped up their efforts on Tuesday without any sign of the missing man.
Headed by the FBI as part of a criminal investigation, the hunt for Laundrie resumed in the vast 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County a day after local police had abruptly ended their efforts.
“Search of the Carlton & nearby lands concluded for the evening. Nothing of note. The current plan is to return Wednesday with a similar operation,” North Port Police, which is assisting in the investigation, wrote in a Tuesday night Twitter post.
Laundrie’s parents reported him missing on Friday and claimed their backpack-toting son left their North Port home on Tuesday to go hiking.
The missing man had been named a person of interest in the disappearance of Petito, whose body has since been found in a Wyoming national park.
Petito went missing late last month while the couple were on a cross-country tour of national parks. Her death has been ruled a homicide.
Crews have been focusing the search in the Carlton Reserve, where he allegedly abandoned his Ford Mustang. But the operation is complicated since Laundrie had several days to get ahead of them.
Authorities are also investigating a deer camera sighting 500 miles away from Laundrie’s home of a man that resembled him.
