The lawyer representing the family of Brian Laundrie said he’s no longer holding a press conference on Tuesday after he spoke with the FBI, several outlets reported.

Steven Bertolino had a press conference initially scheduled for 1 p.m. on Tuesday in Long Island, New York.

Bertolino did not give any more details on the cancellation or his conversation with the FBI.

The FBI searched Laundrie’s home in North Port, Florida on Monday.

“The FBI is executing a court-authorized search warrant today at the Laundrie residence in North Port, FL relevant to the Gabrielle ‘Gabby’ Petito investigation,” the FBI’s Tampa office tweeted on Monday.

Laundrie, who has been missing since Tuesday, is a person of interest in Petito’s disappearance. Petito was reported missing on September 11, after Laundrie returned to his family home on September 1 without her.

In a tweet, News12 reporter Eileen Lehpamer said Bertolino said there were no updates on Laundrie’s location.

Remains believed to be Petito’s were discovered near Grand Teton National Park on Sunday.

Laundrie is still missing and authorities earlier on Monday said they “exhausted all avenues” searching the Carlton Reserve, where he told his family he would be hiking before he disappeared.
