Police stayed at the residence for a “conversation” for about two and a half hours before leaving without anyone in custody.
At one point during the visit, a uniformed officer exited the house and went to his vehicle, returning with what appeared to be a paper evidence bag.
Urging “calm” from the public, police said the details of that conversation will be released in a statement.
“The conversation at the Laundrie home is complete. Once we have the details, a statement will be made,” North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison said in a tweet. “We ask for calm! Please let us work through this and information will be forthcoming.
Police left the home just before 9 p.m. on Friday without taking anyone into custody.
Family members remained inside the home out of public view.
Witness Jonathan Riches, 42, told The Post he saw police officers arrive in an unmarked black van around 6:20 p.m parting the mob of people in the driveway who were protesting and demanding Brian talk to cops.
“That van there pulled up to the road, stopped for about 30 seconds, and then pulled into the driveway,” Riches said. “The driver, who was in a full law enforcement uniform, he came out with a clipboard.”
One officer in full uniform walked in and didn’t have to knock — Laundrie’s parents there waiting and let him in, according to Riches. A few other officers followed.
“The family opened the door, he didn’t even knock on the door as if it was prearranged.”
Police also searched Laundrie’s father’s Mustang.
The North Port Police department later put out a tweet saying they were not there to talk to Brian.
“North Port Police are currently speaking with the Laundrie Family at their request. At this time, we are not speaking with Brian. More details when available,” they wrote.
Riches, a friend of the Petito family, was one of dozens of protesters, holding signs and shouting “We want Gabby!” and “Bring him out!” through megaphones.
“We’re standing out here in support of Gabby,” he told The Post, while holding a
“Justice for Gabby” sign with a photo of the missing woman.
“I’m just here as a concerned citizen hoping that Brian comes out and cooperates and tells authorities what’s going on.”
