The authorities found human remains in a Natural Reserve of Florida where they were looking for Gabby Petito's missing boyfriend, a young American influencedom murdered weeks ago, the US Federal Police, the FBI.

The police also found a notebook and a backpack belonging to the Boyfriend of Petito, Brian Laundrie, to which the agents consider "a person of interest" in the research on the death of the young woman who documented his travel on Instagram.

"These items appeared in an area that had recently been under water," explained the FBI Michael McPherson agent during a televised press conference by American media.

Forensic teams are examining the finding area, in the Carlton Nature Reserve, where they will probably go by several days, he added.

Laundrie and Petito left New York in July to travel the west of the United States in a truck for four months, after she resigned her work.

For days, they shared on social networks images of them smiling, on a trip that seemed idyllic.

But on September 1, Laundrie returned only to her house from North Port, in Florida, where she lived with her family and Petito.

The case of the 22-year-old girl has been the subject of enormous media coverage in the country from the announcement of her disappearance.

His corpse appeared on September 19 at the Gran Teton National Park in Wyoming. And on October 12 it was announced that she had died strangled.

Shortly after his return home, Laundrie, 23, disappeared after refusing to answer the police questions.

His parents and the police had met on Wednesday morning to try to locate the young man at the Carlton Reserve, in West Florida.

Petito's family had pointed out his disappearance on September 11, assuring that they had not seen her since the end of August.

A video published in September by Moab police, a small town of Utah, increased suspicion around Laundrie.

In the images, Petito appears crying in a car, after the police intervened by a dispute between her and her boyfriend.

The disappearance of the girl and the subsequent search for her boyfriend caused a torrent of publications on social networks, whose users were mobilized to try to find the young woman.

As for LAUNDRIE, the police received calls throughout the country of people who thought I saw it after their flight.

The story of Petito is sadly common in a country where hundreds of thousands of people disappear each year.

But the media attention given to the case has aroused a controversy over the disproportionate attention given to the disappearances of white women compared to those of minority origin.
