The FBI said dental records confirmed the identification.

Along with the remains, investigators found clothing believed to belong to Laundrie, he said.

Sir. Laundrie disappeared last month, a few days before Wyoming authorities found the remains of his fiancée, Gabby Petito, whose death was convicted of manslaughter by manual suffocation.

“It’s consistent with what he’s believed to be wearing,” said North Port Police spokesman Josh Taylor.

Taylor stated that the belongings had been out there for some time.

Investigators also found a backpack and a notebook belonging to Laundrie, 23, near the remains while searching the Carlton Reserve in North Port, according to FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael McPherson.

“The notebook to my understanding has not been opened. You know it needs to be addressed,” Taylor said.

A source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that the laptop “may be rescued”. The source said the notebook was “outside the dry bag”.

“It had been clearly wet and they are going to use all possible means to dry it out before it opens,” according to the source.

The source said it is unclear how the laptop ended up outside the dry bag.

When Mr Taylor was asked whether a weapon was found, he said he could not comment.

Asked if there is an ongoing search for the killer of Gabby Petito, he replied: “It is certainly not in the North Port Police Department’s area.”

During a search with police, Brian’s father, Chris Laundrie, was the first to find an item belonging to his son, according to Taylor.
