TAMPA (WFLA) – The attorney for Brian Laundrie’s family will not hold a news conference on Tuesday, pursuant to a request from the FBI that he not go ahead with it, according to NewsNation’s Brian Entin.

The news conference was previously scheduled to be held at 1 p.m. in Long Island, New York.

Laundrie, who was identified by police as a person of interest in his fiancé Gabby Petito’s disappearance, was reported missing himself on Sept. 17. Officers from the North Port Police Department and agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation removed items from his family home on Monday in connection with the Petito investigation, FBI officials said.  

Remains thought to be those of Petito were found in Wyoming Sunday, but a forensic identification is still pending. The cause of death has not been released.
