Officials Use ATVs, Drones to Search for Person of Interest in Gabby Petito Death

Florida authorities continued the search for Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the disappearance of Gabby Petito, on land and by air in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County on Thursday, September 23.

Video shared by North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor shows authorities riding ATVs through the “rough” terrain of the nature reserve during Thursday’s search.

The FBI joined the search for Laundrie after authorities found Petito’s body in the Spread Creek Dispersed Camping Area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming. Her death was determined to be a homicide, the FBI said in a statement.

Petito was first reported missing on September 11, 10 days after Laundrie returned home from their cross-country road trip without her. Laundrie has not been seen since September 13, according to reports. Credit: Josh Taylor via Storyful
