The lawyer representing the family of Brian Laundrie said he's no longer holding a press conference Tuesday after speaking with the FBI, several outlets reported.

The press conference had been scheduled for 1 p.m. on Long Island, New York. The lawyer, Steven Bertolino, did not give any more details on the cancellation or his communication with the FBI.

The FBI searched Laundrie's home in North Port, Florida, on Monday.

Authorities have named Laundrie, who has been missing since last Tuesday, a person of interest in the disappearance of his 22-year-old fiancée, Gabby Petito. The two traveled together on a road trip in August, but Laundrie returned to his family home on September 1 without her. Petito's family reported her missing September 11.

In a tweet, the reporter Eileen Lehpamer of the Long Island outlet News 12 said Bertolino did not have any updates on Laundrie's location.

Remains believed to be Petito's were discovered near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on Sunday.

Laundrie is still missing, and authorities earlier Monday said they "exhausted all avenues" searching the Carlton Reserve, where he told his family he would be hiking before he disappeared.
