The investigation into the disappearance of Brian Laundrie, whose fiancé Gabby Petito was found dead in Wyoming last month, has revealed new details about his past movements as well as traces of human activity on the nature reserve that have been the focus of a massive search.

Police found the remains of a campground that recently appeared to be used in Florida’s Carlton Reserve, a 24,565-acre wildlife wilderness near Laundrie’s family home that has been closed to visitors, a source close to the family told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday.

Laundrie’s father, Chris Laundrie, went to the reservation on Thursday morning to help law enforcement apply, family lawyer Steven Bertolino told CNN.

“Chris was asked to point out any favorite trails or places that Brian may have used in the nature reserve. Although Chris and Roberta Laundrie verbally provided this information three weeks ago, it is now believed that on-site assistance could be better, ”he said.

In addition, the North Port Police Department confirmed that a notice was placed on an abandoned vehicle belonging to the Laundrie family near the nature reserve on 14 September.

Laundrie’s family told police on September 17 that they had not seen him for several days and said he told the family he was on his way to the reserve.

The ongoing search comes as investigators try to gather what happened to Petito, 22, and Laundrie, 23, on their ride in a white Ford Transit van through the American West this summer.

Laundrie and the van – but not Petito – returned to their family home in North Port, Florida on September 1st. Petito’s parents, who were unable to get in touch with either her or Laundrie, reported her missing 10 days later.

When police searched for Petito, Laundrie refused to speak to investigators and then disappeared himself.

The national focus on her whereabouts also revealed conflicts in their relationship, particularly during a home dispute in August and police interaction that went against their ambitious, sun-drenched social media posts.
