The FBI returned to the home of Brian Laundrie in search of items that might have his DNA on them, CNN reports.

“The FBI requested some personal items belonging to Brian Laundrie to assist them with DNA matching and Brian’s parents provided the FBI with what they could,” the Laundries’ lawyer, Steven Bertolino, told multiple news outlets over the weekend.

FBI agents visited Laundrie’s home to find these items. Two agents entered the home. One of them held an evidence bag, according to CNN.

On Thursday of last week, the U.S. District Court of Wyoming issued a federal arrest warrant for Laundrie, saying that he was wanted for “use of unauthorized access device” related to activities after the death of Petito, whose body was found in Grand Teton National Park on Sept. 19. The warrant suggested he used a Capital One bank debit card in an attempt to defraud.

Laundrie was first reported missing on Friday, Sept. 17, when his family requested police to their home to talk about the missing Laundrie, who was named a person of interest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito.

Petito and Laundrie had been on a cross-country road trip throughout the summer, but only Laundrie returned home to North Port, Florida, on Sept. 1. Ten days later, Petito was reported missing. Laundrie invoked his Fifth Amendment right, declining to speak with police.

Since his disappearance, the North Port police department has been assisting the FBI during its investigation at the Carlton Reserve, a 25,000-acre park in Sarasota County, Florida.
