Brian Laundrie, 23, is currently the only person of interest in the case of the homicide of missing YouTuber Gabby Petito.

Found during a search of Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park in North Port, Florida, the Sarasota County medical examiner’s office confirmed police recently found items belonging to Brian Laundrie, Gabby Petito's fiance at the time of death.

Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park is near to the Carlton Reserve where Laundrie said he went hiking to over a month ago to his parents and didn't return.

It has not been confirmed what these belongings are.

Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park had been closed to the public for nearly a month while federal agents searched the area.

The couple had been living in the campervan while travelling across the States, with their journey documented on social media. However, their content stopped abruptly, and reports state Petito was last in contact with her family on 27th August however there are doubts she sent the final messages.

Laundrie returned to their home in Florida at the beginning of September, while Petito was reported missing by her family 10 days later, on 11th September.

On 21st September, police confirmed a body found in a Wyoming National Park belonged to Petito. The FBI has ruled that Petito's death was a 'homicide' - adding the official cause of death would be announced pending final autopsy results.

Earlier this month the autopsy confirmed Petito died by strangulation.
