Search continues for Gabby Petito’s boyfriend

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Search teams found nothing of note at a Florida wilderness park where they have spent days looking for the boyfriend of Gabby Petito — the young woman who authorities say was killed while on a cross-country trip with him.

The search resumed yesterday morning at the 24,000-acre Carlton Reserve park and ended just before dark. A rep for North Port police says investigators say Brian Laundrie’s parents told them he’d gone there after returning home without Petito on Sept. 1.

It was the fourth day of searching in the Carlton Reserve. Operations were suspended Monday while the FBI searched the nearby Laundrie home for evidence.

The search of the reserve is to resume this morning.
