(WJW / AP) – The attorney for Brian Laundrie’s family says Laundrie left home without his wallet and cell phone on Tuesday, Sept. 14, according to reports from NewsNation.

Attorney Steven Bertolino also told NewsNation reporter Brian Entin that Laundrie’s parents were worried he might hurt himself.

This news comes to light as investigators wrap up another day of searching for Laundrie at the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County.

The FBI issued a warrant for Laundrie’s arrest Thursday with bank card fraud, saying the 23-year-old made unauthorized withdrawals worth more than $1,000 after his fiancé, Gabby Petito, went missing.

Petito’s body was found in Wyoming after a search when her family reported her missing on Sept. 11. Her cause of death has not been determined.

Laundrie is also wanted for questioning in Petito’s disappearance.

Petito and Laundrie left in July on a cross-country trek in a converted van to visit national parks in the U.S. West. Police said Laundrie was alone when he drove the van back to his parents’ home in North Port, Florida, on Sept. 1.
