NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - Authorities haven begun another day of slogging through the tough wilderness area known as Carlton Reserve Thursday, as they continue the search for Brian Laundrie, the person of interest in a high-profile homicide case who has been missing more more than a week.

Authorities have searched Carlton Reserve since Saturday, using swamp buggies, dogs, drones and helicopters. The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery team was called in to assist Wednesday but North Port Police have reported no sightings of Landrie.
