At this point in the investigation, police in North Port, Florida would not be surprised if person of interest Brian Laundrie found was dead or alive.
Apart from Laundrie’s car, North Port police officers have failed to uncover anything in the Carlton Reserve.
“We need to find something, I think there is so much attention on this [and] I do not know that this case would ever get to be a cold case,” officer Josh Taylor said according to NewsNation. “We will continue to search. You know, we could be searching that Carlton Reserve and nearby lands for a long, long time.”
Since Laundrie was reported missing, police have scoured the area. His family last saw him wearing a hiking bag with a waist strap, heading into Carlton Reserve on Sept. 13.
An abandoned car notice was placed on Laundrie’s Ford Mustang on Sept. 14.
According to Laundrie’s family attorney, Steve Bertolino, parents Chris and Roberta went to the park to find their son. They discovered the citation just a day after Laundrie told them he was going to the reserve. His parents brought the car home on Sept. 15.
Police received countless suggestions from the public and none of them could be substantiated at the time of publication.
