NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) – Authorities are once again searching a swampy preserve area near the home of the boyfriend wanted for questioning in the death of 22-year-old Gabby Petito.

Her body was discovered at a Wyoming national park over the weekend, months after the pair set out on a cross-country road trip.

Police in North Port, Florida, said Tuesday morning that investigators have returned to the Carlton Reserve to look for 23-year-old Brian Laundrie.

Investigators also searched the 24,000-acre Florida nature preserve over the weekend. On Monday, the FBI removed several boxes and towed away a car from Laundrie’s parents’ home.
