BRIAN Laundrie’s family discovered a note left on his car in Florida, their attorney has said.

Cops left the notice on Laundrie’s Ford Mustang, which was found by his family Wednesday which had been parked near the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, according to Steven Bertolino.



The note had requested the car be removed, but the family left the vehicle there until Thursday, hoping he’d return to it, Bertolino told the New York Post.

However, video appears to show the car parked on the Laundrie’s driveway Wednesday, according to a Crimeonline report.

Footage from NewsNationNow reporter Brian Entin appeared to show the Mustang convertible back in the driveway on Wednesday night.

Laundrie is said to have gone off for a hike in the 25,000-acre nature preserve Tuesday, according to his family.

But the 23-year-old hasn’t been seen since and he was reported missing Friday to cops.

A search of the swampland started Saturday morning but was called off by police Monday, who said they had “exhausted all avenues in searching of the grounds there.”

The search for Laundrie continues after he was declared a “person of interest” last week in the disappearance of Gabby Petito.

A Tiktok user known as Jessica Over Yonder has now said she is "100 per cent sure" she saw Laundrie, who was on his own, parking his van after he is thought to have gone missing.

She described him and looking "awkward and confused".

It comes after TikToker Miranda Baker believes she picked him up on August 29, four days after the last time Petito was known to have called her family.

Laundrie is thought to have told Baker he had been camping alone while Petito worked on their social media page in their van.

According to Baker, Laundrie got out of her car when she said she was heading to Jackson Hole.

"He got out, and you know, he was thankful and he was kind of in a hurry. He said he was going to go across the street into the parking lot and find someone else to give him a ride, but, when we looked back 10 or 15 seconds after he got out of the vehicle he was just gone," she said.

Cops started searching the Laundrie family home today and bundled his parents into a police van after declaring a "crime scene."

The latest developments in the bizarre case came just hours after a body was found in the search for Petito.

The FBI announced a "search warrant" twice before they removed Chris and Roberta Laundrie from the home. The parents were placed in a van on their lawn.

An FBI agent was seen entering the home with a bag and an envelope. It is unclear why they are at the scene. They were later seen bringing folding chairs and a table inside.

Police taped off the area and told people nearby that they were "in a crime scene."

In a statement, the FBI confirmed that they were executing a "court-authorized search warrant."

It comes after human remains were discovered in Grand Teton National Park, where 22-year-old Gabby Petito had been camping with Laundrie when she disappeared.

The vlogger had been traveling across America since July and was last seen on August 24 leaving a Utah hotel with her fiancé.

They visited national parks and tourist attractions, documenting their trip on social media, before she went missing.

On September 1, Laundrie returned home to Florida in their white van, without Petito.

Following the unusual circumstances, Petito's mother, Nicole Schmidt, reported her daughter missing on September 11 at around 6.55pm. 

Cops found the couple's Ford Transit van in North Port, Florida, during the weekend of September 11 – when Gabby's parents reported her disappearance.

Laundrie returned to the state and hired an attorney, but went missing after he was named a person of interest.
