After being pulled over by a police officer in the van that he was travelling in with Gabby Petito, Brian Laundrie speaks to the officer.
After a month-long search for Brian Laundrie Gabby Petito, Gabby's fianc was identified as a "person to interest" in her disappearance. Officials on Wednesday announced that they had found human remains and other items in a Florida park.

Officials didn't identify the remains, but they said that they searched the area and found Laundrie’s backpack as well as a notebook.

The remains were discovered in Carlton Reserve in a section recently covered with water. According to the FBI, Laundrie-related items of interest were also found in the same location by the Tampa office.

BuzzFeed News was informed by a spokesperson for the office of the medical examiner that they were "called to that place" but that they could not immediately confirm if a body had been discovered.

In a briefing Wednesday to reporters, Michael McPherson (special agent in charge at the FBI's Tampa branch) declined to answer any questions about the discovery.

He said, "I know that you have many questions, but we don’t have all of the answers yet."
