North Port police said there was “nothing to report” after concluding the search for the night on Sunday.

Laundrie was named as a “person of interest” in the case after he returned home alone from the couple’s cross-country road trip on September 1 and refused to cooperate with authorities.

He disappeared on Tuesday after telling his parents he was going hiking in Carlton Reserve – made up of around 25,000 acres of wilderness.

The FBI along with 50 local agencies started Saturday morning using drones and scent-tracking K9 dogs but failed to find anything.

Clothing was taken from the family home on Friday to help canine units, according to North Port Police spokesperson Josh Taylor.

The search kicked off at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, a 160-acre park connected to the marshy Carlton reserve by a bridge where Laundrie was known to go hiking.

“It’s muddy, it’s wet, there are a few unpaved dirt roads that are out there basically running along the power lines, you know it’s a place that people hike, there are mountain biking trails out there,” North Port Police Department spokesman Josh Taylor said Saturday, adding the search could take “a long time.”

Laundrie’s parents told investigators the park had been the last place their son had been seen, after they met with investigators Friday to discuss his disappearance.

North Port police were looking into a blurry cell phone photo of a man with a bald head in flip flops – who resembles Laundire – near his family home on Friday.

Cops said it was “fair to say” that Laundrie could potentially pose a threat to himself or others.

Highlighting the fact the 23-year-old was a skilled outdoorsman, they said he “could be out there for months.”

Cops said Laundrie was able to disappear because he is not a suspect, had not been charged with a crime and they were not tracking his movements.
