The search for Brian Laundrie continues.

The K9 unit at Pasco County Sheriff’s Officials has joined in on the search for Brian Laundrie, the sole person of interest in the Gabby Petito case.

The agency said Thursday that they are assisting North Port police, the Sarasota County’s Sheriff’s Office and FBI at the Carlton Reserve.

The K9 involved is handled by a Pasco County forensic investigator.

Brian remains missing, despite several weeks of searching Sarasota County.

Brian has not been named a suspect, but he is wanted on a federal warrant for unauthorized use of her car. When the FBI announced charges last month, they said a Capital One Bank card was used between Aug. 30 and Sept. 1, taking more than 1,000.

Last week his parents backtracked, saying they now believe the day Brian left for his hike in the Carlton Reserve on Monday, Sept. 13.

Investigators are still asking the public for help in locating Brian.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-200-CALL-FBI.
