NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - After ending last night’s search due to inclement weather, authorities are back in North Port searching for Brian Laundrie.

Police confirmed today that Brian’s Ford Mustang was picked up by the Laundrie family at the Carlton Reserve. Brian’s car was at the Laundrie house Friday night when police arrived. North Port Police also say it is possible Brian could have hurt himself.

A team of more than 50 looking for anything after his parents say he went to the Carlton Reserve sometime Tuesday and never returned. Police say they continue to corroborate all information they are given by tipsters. However, rumors of a body found yesterday were not accurate, North Port Police say.

The attorney for the Petito family issues a statement saying, ”All of Gabby’s family wants the world to know that Brian is not missing, he is hiding. Gabby is missing.”

The FBI is continuing to ask for tips for anyone who saw the pair camping near Grand Teton National Park to reach out to them at 1-800-Call-FBI.
