NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - The Pasco County Sheriff’s office sent K-9 units to assist the FBI and North Port Police Thursday in the search for Brian Laundrie.

Laundrie is the only person of interest in the disappearance and death of Gabrielle Petito. The pair had been on a cross-country road trip during which time Gabby went missing. Her remains were found last month and the coroner said that Petito had been strangled.

He is wanted on a federal warrant for bank fraud. Laundrie’s parents say he disappeared after going on a hike in the reserve.

Search efforts have waned in recent days. Thursday, Pasco County Sheriff’s officials confirmed that they had sent a K-9 trainer and a K-9 trained in detecting human remains to the reserve.
