Florida police said Monday that they have "exhausted all avenues" in searching the sprawling grounds of the state's Carlton Reserve for Gabby Petito's fiancé, Brian Laundrie.

The North Port Police Department, the lead agency investigating the case, said it "currently has no plans to conduct a major search" of the 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve on Monday.

Authorities have been searching the area since Saturday morning after Laundrie's family told police on Friday that they believe the 23-year-old man went there for a hike earlier last week. Laundrie remains missing.

"At this time, we currently believe we have exhausted all avenues in searching of the grounds there. Law enforcement agencies continue to search for Brian Laundrie," North Port police said.

Meanwhile, authorities said Sunday that they found a body near Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park believed to be Petito. An autopsy to confirm the identity of the remains will be conducted Tuesday.

The discovery of the human remains was made more than a week after the 22-year-old woman was reported missing by her family in New York.

Laundrie was named by police as a person of interest in her disappearance after the couple went on a cross-country road trip out west in a white converted camper van on July 2.

He returned home to Florida with the van and without Petito on September 1, police have said.
