As the search for Brian Laundrie in a Florida nature preserve continues, police said on Friday that they have yet to discover any physical evidence of the 23-year-old inside the vast wilderness area. However, their efforts will continue to search the vast space until clues to his whereabouts are uncovered, North Port police spokesman Josh Taylor told CNN Friday.

Since his fiancée, Gabby Petito, was found dead in Wyoming three weeks ago, Laundrie has been the subject of a manhunt at the Carlton Reserve near his family’s home in North Port, Florida, New York Post reported.

Something needs to give, in this case, Taylor told

“We need to find something. I think there’s so much attention on this. I don’t know that this case would ever get to be a cold case. We’ll continue to search. You know, we could be searching that Carlton Reserve and nearby lands for a long, long time.”

An abandoned car notice was placed on a Ford Mustang belonging to the Laundrie family on Sept. 14 outside a park that serves as an entry to the reserve, North Port police confirmed this week.

According to Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino, the parents, Chris and Roberta, went to the park that day seeking their son and discovered the citation, a day after Laundrie told them he was going to the reserve. On Sept. 15, his parents returned with the car.

Laundrie has not been charged with Petito’s death, but he is wanted by the FBI for using another person’s debit card without permission in the days after she last spoke with her family.
