Human remains were found near where investigators found items belonging to Brian Laundire, according to multiple reports.
There has been no confirmation the remains are Laundrie.
Laundrie is wanted as a person of interest in connection to Gabby Petito’s disappearance and homicide.
Petito lived in Florida with Laundrie and the two embarked on a cross-country trip over the summer. They chronicled their adventures of so-called “van life” as they visited various national parks and locations. The couple posted seemingly loving photos and videos of their trip.
In early September, Laundrie returned to Florida without Petito. More than a week later, Petito’s family in New York reported her missing. A massive manhunt by police in Florida, the FBI and social-media sleuths unfolded.
Officers in Florida named Laundrie as a person of interest and said they wanted to speak to him about Petito’s disappearance.
On Sept. 19, FBI officials announced they found Petito’s remains in Wyoming. Her death has been ruled a homicide and her cause of death was strangulation.
