‘Dangerous work’ of searching through waist-deep water packed with dangerous wildlife for Brian Laundrie continues
Law enforcement agencies in Florida will resume their search of a “vast and unforgiving” nature reserve near the home of Brian Laundrie on Tuesday, a week after the missing person of interest was last seen.

Large parts of the reserve are under water, and packed with dangerous wildlife, Mr Taylor added.
“Please be aware, the Carlton Reserve is a vast and unforgiving location at times. It is currently waist-deep in water in many areas.
“This is dangerous work for the search crews as they are wading through gator and snake-infested swamps and flooded hiking and biking trails.”

He was reported missing on Friday after police went to his house to speak to his parents.
