THE North Port Police Department’s K-9 unit is being criticized for not finding Brian Laundrie’s body, regardless of the rise in water levels at the reserve.
Laundrie’s parents led authorities to his last known location on Wednesday and found what appeared to be their son’s backpack and notebook.

The search for Brian Laundrie ended on Thursday after his body was found at the Carlton Reserve in Florida.
Laundrie’s parents discovered their son’s possessions in less than two hours, and authorities uncovered human remains near the backpack.
The North Port Police Department confirmed the remains found were Brian Laundrie through a dental match on Thursday, prompting questions regarding how the 33-day search was so unsuccessful.
Kyle Heyen, a former police officer, and K-9 handler said it was highly suspicious the dogs did not find Laundrie’s body, even if he was submerged underwater.
Heyen said on Dan Abrams Live, “If the body had been there when they went by with cadaver dogs, and the body had been there for more than two or three minutes, the odor would have come through the water.
“They should have been able to locate that body.”
The North Port Police Department and the Laundrie family’s attorney, Steven Bertolino, did not respond to a request for comment in time for this article.
