Brian Landry’s father, Christopher Landry, has entered Mayacotchee Creek Environmental Park in Florida in search of his fugitive son.
He arrived alone in his Dodge Ram pickup truck on Thursday as he went through the gate with law enforcement personnel, including North Port police.
The park is adjacent to the T. Mabry Carlton Jr. Reserve, where law enforcement has been searching for Brian Laundry for weeks.

This development comes after Laundry’s lawyer said Wednesday that Christopher Laundry is starting to assist authorities in the search for his son, whom he last saw on September 13, shortly after his fiancಬ್ಬ Gabby Petito passed away.
On September 19, the FBI discovered Petito’s remains in a remote Wyoming campsite.
“Chris Landry was asked to help law enforcement in his search for Brian today in a protected location,” Landry’s family attorney Steve Bertolino told LBL on Wednesday night. “Because conservation is closed to the public, Chris is unable to see Brian in the only place where he believes Chris and Roberta Bryan can be.”
Brian Landry was named the man of interest on the day Petito lost. On September 23, the FBI announced a federal warrant for bank fraud allegations that they used someone else’s debit card without permission for more than $ 1,000.
His whereabouts are unknown until Thursday – but the search in the reserve continues for weeks, with reports of possible sightings in other parts of Florida and the Appalachian Trail that crosses the North Carolina and Tennessee border.
