Brian Laundrie, who was recently named a person of interest in the the disappearance of his fiancé, Gabby Petito, is now also missing, according to his lawyer.

"Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown," Laundrie's lawyer, Steven Bertolino, told Fox News. "The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is looking for both Gabby and Brian."

Laundrie's family has not seen him as of Tuesday, Josh Taylor, a public information officer for the North Port Police said, according to the New York Post.

This comes after North Port Chief of Police Todd Garrison told reporters Thursday that authorities knew where Laundrie was.

Police visited the Laundrie’s North Port, Florida home Friday to speak with his family at their request.

One officer was seen entering the home carrying what appeared to be an evidence envelope as protesters surrounding the property shouted remarks such as "dirty Laundrie" and "bring him out!"

Petito has not been seen since late August when she and Laundrie were traveling the country. Petito's parents reported her missing on Sept. 11 after not hearing from her for more than a week. Laundrie, however, returned to his home on Sept. 1 with Petito's van. 

Laundrie has refused to speak with authorities about Petito's disappearance.

Petito’s last spoke with her family on Aug. 25, when she was presumed to be in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. 

On Aug. 12, police responded to a possible domestic dispute in Moab, Utah after the two were spotted speeding down a road and instructed the two to spend the night apart. No charges were filed as police were treating the incident as a mental health concern rather than a domestic abuse incident.
