Partial Remains Discovered, Medical Examiner Called to Florida Park Site Where Brian Laundrie Items Were Found

The Sarasota County Medical Examiner and a cadaver dog were called to the Florida park where several items belonging to Brian Laundrie have been found.

Laundrie’s parents told authorities on Tuesday night that they intended to search for Brian at the park on Wednesday morning. Law enforcement met them there and after a “brief search” the family and authorities found “some articles” belonging to Laundrie on a trail. There was no further information about what those items were.

Following the discovery of Laundrie’s items, officials found partial human remains in the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. There is no confirmation that the remains are Laundrie’s.

North Port police had requested Pasco Sheriff’s cadaver dogs to assist, and a helicopter spotted a tent set up in the search area. A search is ongoing.

Laundrie is a person of interest in the murder of Gabby Petito, whose body was discovered on September 19.
