North Port police spokesman Josh Taylor told CNN’s Randi Kaye that although nothing found in Laundrie was found inside the store, their efforts would remain in place until they got a good experience.
North Port police confirmed this week that an abandoned car notice had been posted on the Laundrie family’s Ford Mustang on September 14 outside a park that serves as a park.
The parents, Chris and Roberta, went to the park that day looking for their son and found the statement, according to Laundrie family law attorney Steve Bertolino, a day after they said Laundrie told them she was heading to the reserve. Her parents brought the car home on September 15.
The search was prompted by information from Laundrie’s parents, Taylor told CNN, and while the police department has received several tip-offs from the public, police say no one has looked so far.
Police say Laundrie was under investigation before she disappeared
Petito, whose body was found on September 19, is said to have been missing eight days ago by his family who had not heard from him since the end of August.
When police, as part of an investigation into Petito’s disappearance, went to the Laundrie family home on the night of September 11, he was not seen and there was no opportunity to speak to him, Taylor told CNN.
On September 17, when police spoke to Laundrie’s parents after they called her missing, they refused to address Petito’s disappearance or answer any questions about him, which police described as bizarre, Taylor said. Laundrie’s parents, who had their lawyer on the speaker’s phone, were just talking about their dead son.
About a week after Laundrie’s return, she and her parents went camping for a while at a place about 75 miles from their home, attorney Bertolino told CNN.
In late September, Laundrie’s parents released a statement through their lawyer, saying, “Chris and Roberta Laundrie don’t know where Brian is. They are worried about Brian and hope the FBI can find him. Public speculation by others in the press.” for Brian has been away for several days badly. “
Dad joined the search this week
“Chris was asked to point out all of your favorite methods or bullets that Brian might have used in defense,” the lawyer said. Although the family provided information they already knew, “it has been suggested that on-site support may be better,” he said.
“The closure has been closed to the public and Laundries as well but parents have been working together since the search began,” Bertolino said.
“It wasn’t available but the effort helped everyone,” he said.
Police in China have denied that the camp was found in a storage area during the initial search. The promise came after a source close to Laundrie’s family told CNN they had been told by investigators that the police had found it. The source and China confirmed that the Laundrie family had been told the camp had been found.
“Is it possible for them to think that there could be a camp out there or something they might have seen in the air, but when they got to the ground it didn’t happen. Well, I think that’s what it is,” Taylor, a spokeswoman for North Port Police, said. “The important thing is that investigators are telling me that no camp has been found out there.”
As the search continued, Laundrie’s parents thought she was still in custody, Bertolino said, and as a result, any public calls they made to her to commit to the authorities would not reach her.
“In short, the parents believe Brian was and still is a caregiver so there was no reason to plead on the radio he lacked,” the lawyer said.
