The family of Brian Laundrie — who vanished as authorities hunted for his girlfriend Gabby Petito — found a note left on his car in Florida, their attorney told The Post Monday.
Police left behind the notice on Laundrie’s Mustang, which his family found Wednesday parked near the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, according to attorney Steven Bertolino.
The note had asked for the car to be removed — but the family left the vehicle there until Thursday, hoping he’d return to it, Bertolino said.
Laundrie, 23, took off on a supposed hike of the 25,000-acre nature preserve on Tuesday and wasn’t heard from again. His family reported him missing to cops on Friday.
Police called off a search of the wildlife refuge on Monday, saying they had “exhausted all avenues in searching of the grounds there.” But they said they were still looking for Laundrie, who was identified last week as a person of interest in Petito’s disappearance.
Meanwhile, a body “consistent with the description” of Petito was discovered Sunday in Wyoming’s Bridger-Teton National Forest.
Petito, 22, was last heard from on Aug. 25 during a road trip with Laundrie to visit national parks out west.
She was reported missing by her family on Sept. 11
Laundrie returned with the couple’s van to his family’s home in North Port on Sept. 1, but declined to talk to authorities about her whereabouts.
