Related video: Brian Laundrie’s dad joins search
The parents of Brian Laundrie have been filmed clearing away discarded items left behind by protesters outside their home.
Chris and Roberta Laundrie were spotted on Sunday evening moving white laundry bins that had been left there. A poster with an image of Gabby Petito was also reportedly moved.
A police manhunt for Mr Laundrie remains without leads after a Florida nature reserve was searched, and there is only a 50 per cent chance the missing man is still alive, police have said.
Josh Taylor, the North Port police spokesperson, told CNN that nothing significant linked to Mr Laundrie has been found in the Carlton Reserve, but searches will continue until police receive more information.
It comes as a bounty hunter involved in the search said he was withdrawing from the operation after suffering an ankle injury.
Teton County Coroner to give Petito autopsy update on Tuesday
Teton County Coroner, Dr Brent Blue, is holding a press conference on Tuesday regarding the ruling on the autopsy of Gabby Petito.
The press conference will be hosted on Zoom at 12.30pm EST (2.30pm Mountain Time).
On 19 September, the FBI discovered Petito’s remains at a campground in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming.
She was declared a victim of homicide. And her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, was named a person of interest in the case. Even though he has not been charged with anything related to the homicide, he has a federal arrest warrant on his name for debit card fraud.
Dr Blue, during the press conference, might also reveal Petito’s time and cause of death, reports said.

What does being a ‘person of interest’ mean for Brian Laundrie?
Brian Laundrie is wanted not for Gabby Petito’s death, but for a fraud charge relating to him using her debit card after leaving her in Wyoming and – presumably – after her death.
With regard to Ms Petito’s death, Mr Laundrie is still only considered a “person of interest.”

Brian Laundrie likely being “taken care of” according to former FBI agent
Brian Laundrie is likely being “taken care of,” according to one former FBI agent.
Terry Turchie, a former deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, told Fox News that he believed Mr Laundrie was being cared for somewhere.
“Clearly he’s not out in some camp or some cave somewhere on the hard, cold ground or … snake-, gator-infested water. He’s somewhere where he’s probably being taken care of,” he told the outlet.
