FBI gives update on search for Brian Laundrie
The FBI gives an update on the search for Brian Laundrie, fiancé of Gabby Petito, after human remains were found in Florida's Carlton Reserve.
Good afternoon, my name is Michael Mcpherson. I'm the special agent in charge of the FBI Tampa division. As you're aware, the FBI and the North Port Police Department and our state and local law enforcement partners have been searching the area of the Carlton reserve for brian laundry, a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito. Earlier today, investigators found what appears to be human remains although with personal items such as a backpack and notebook belonging to bryan laundry. These items were found in an area that up until recently have been underwater. Our evidence response team is on scene using all available forensic resources to process the area. It's likely the team will be on scene for several days. I know you have a lot of questions but we don't have all the answers yet. We are working diligently to get those answers for you. We are grateful for the dedication and professionalism of the North Port Police Department along with our partners from the state and local agencies complex investigations such as this cannot be accomplished by what agency alone, but there's just too many agencies to name them all here. Today portions of the Myakka Hatchery Creek Environment Park and Carlton Reserve remain closed to the public until further notice this is an active and ongoing investigation. So we ask the public to maintain distance from any law enforcement personnel equipment, vehicles and other related activity for the safety of the public and to protect the integrity of our work. We have no additional comment relates to today's activities. Our FBI Denver office is the lead investigative agency and all future inquiries should be directed to them. We appreciate the horrendous support from the public and continue to ask for your assistance and bring in this investigation too close. Thank you with the backpack. Found Justice for Gabby.
