As investigators continue the hunt for Brian Laundrie in the vast swamplands of Florida, the FBI returned to his house in North Port to obtain some personal items that can be used for DNA matching purposes.

"The FBI requested some personal items belonging to Brian Laundrie to assist them with DNA matching and Brian's parents provided the FBI with what they could," says Steven Bertolino, the Laundrie's lawyer.

At least two FBI agents were seen inside of the home with one holding a bag.

On September 17, Laundrie's parents told the authorities that Brian had left the house days earlier without his phone and wallet. His disappearance came at the height of the searches for his fiance Gabby Petito, who was later found dead in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Laundrie has a federal warrant out for his arrest following actions he took after Petito's death, but has not officially been named a suspect in her homicide.
