“The body discovered along the Blue Ridge Parkway on Saturday is part of an ongoing investigation,” FBI officials told WSOC9.

“At this time, there is no evidence to connect or any reason to believe it is related to the search for fugitive Brian Laundrie.”

The body was found at the Yadkin Valley Overlook in North Carolina.

A cause of death for the unidentified person has not yet been determined.

WSET reported that dispatchers received a report around 1.14pm on Saturday of a body near the overlook.

Rangers responded shortly after and found a deceased male near Milepost 289.8

The discovery comes as Laundrie has been missing for nearly a month.

The fugitive vanished in September just days before Gabby‘s remains were found near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Gabby, 22, and Laundrie, 23, had been on a cross-country road trip throughout the summer before she disappeared at the end of August.

Laundrie returned home to Florida without his fiance at the beginning of September, and Gabby’s family reported her missing on September 11.

Just days later, Laundrie’s family reported that he was missing as well.

Remains were found in Grand Teton National Park on September 19 and were later confirmed to be Gabby’s.

Laundrie was reportedly not cooperating with investigators before he vanished.

The FBI did not immediately return The Sun’s request for information about the body found in North Carolina.
