The search for Brian Laundrie took another turn Wednesday as police might have found items belonging to the missing man in a Florida park.

Foxnews.com received an exclusive video that shows Brian Laundrie’s parents talking with law enforcement officers in Florida, who showed the parents something they discovered at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park.

  • “I think we might have found something,” an officer told the Laundrie parents, per Foxnews.com

The Laundrie family’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, told Foxnews.com that “some articles belonging to Brian were found” in the park and that officers are investigating the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park for more information.

The video report comes just after CNN reported that items belonging to Brian Laundrie, the fiance of the late Gabby Petito, were found off of a Florida trail that he frequently traveled.

  • Bertolino said Laundrie’s family visited with officials at the park to discuss the found items, according to CNN.

Laundrie is wanted as a person of interest in the case of Petito, who went missing in September. Petito and Laundrie had been on a cross-country road trip during the summer before only Laundrie returned home on Sept. 1. It wasn’t until Sept. 11 that Petito’s family reported Petito missing.

On Sunday, Sept. 19, authorities found human remains that matched Petito’s description. She was later confirmed to have died by strangulation.

Laundrie has been missing since September. His family reported him missing on Sept. 17, saying he left his home on Tuesday, Sept. 14. The family later corrected their story to say Laundrie went missing on Monday, Sept. 13.

Much of the search for Laundrie has been focused on the Carlton Reserve, a 25,000-acre park in Florida. His whereabouts remain unknown.
