NORTH PORT – The FBI confirmed Wednesday that they found items belonging to Brian Laundrie along with human remains in the Carlton Reserve near North Port.
The area where the items were found had been under water earlier during earlier searches, but were uncovered as the ground dried out.
"Earlier today investigators found what appear to be human remains and personal items that may have belonged to Brian Laundrie, including a notebook and a backpack," said Michael McPherson, special agent in charge.
The FBI would not confirm if the remains were those of Brian Laundrie, who has wanted as a person of interest in the disappearance of his girlfriend, Gabriella Petito, whose body was found last month in Teton County, Wyoming.
