Mr Laundrie left the house on Tuesday and was last seen in a large swampy nature reserve near the town of North Port. Local police and the FBI are currently looking for him in the park.

Ms Petito disappeared on a road trip with her fiancÃ©, Mr Laundrie, who returned without her, prompting a frantic search for the 22-year-old woman who began on September 11. Mr. Laundrie was later named as a person of interest for the research.
