Laundrie was named as a “person of interest” in the case after he returned home alone from the couples cross-country road trip on September 1 and refused to cooperate with authorities.
He disappeared on Tuesday after telling his parents he was going hiking in Carlton Reserve – made up of around 25,000 acres of wilderness.
The FBI along with 50 local agencies started Saturday morning using drones and scent-tracking K9 dogs but failed to find anything.
Clothing was taken from the family home on Friday to help canine units, according to North Port Police spokesperson Josh Taylor.

The search kicked off at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park, a 160-acre park connected to the marshy Carlton reserve by a bridge where Laundrie was known to go hiking.
“It’s muddy, it’s wet, there are a few unpaved dirt roads that are out there basically running along the power lines, you know it’s a place that people hike, there are mountain biking trails out there,” North Port Police Department spokesman Josh Taylor said Saturday, adding the search could take “a long time.”
Laundrie’s parents told investigators the park had been the last place their son had been see, after they met with investigators Friday to discuss his disappearance.
