FLORIDA cops have denied reports that a body was found in the area they are searching.
"There are currently false reports of a body being located where we are searching. Completely fake," said the official North Port Police Twitter account on Saturday.
This news comes a the FBI searches for both Gabby Petito and her fiancé Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in her disappearance.
More than 50 North Port police officers as well as the FBI conducted a vast search in the Carlton Reserve in the Sarasota area on Saturday, a day after Laundrie's family reported he's been missing since Tuesday.
“His family says they believe he entered the area earlier this week," North Port police said on Saturday.
Nearly a week into the search for Petito, officers with the North Port Police Department entered Laundrie's Florida home on Friday night — after Laundrie's family requested police to come speak with them.
North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor told the New York Post: "His family has reported that they have not seen Brian as of Tuesday."
Petito, 22, has been missing for two weeks after going on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé.
