    (CNN)The FBI's Denver office said Thursday that remains found a day earlier in a Florida nature reserve are those of Brian Laundrie, who disappeared last month just days after his fiancée Gabby Petito was reported missing.

    The FBI said dental records confirmed the identification.
    Two local detectives visited the North Port, Florida, home of Laundrie's parents shortly before the FBI made its announcement.
    "Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been informed that the remains found yesterday in the reserve are indeed Brian's," family attorney Steven Bertolino said. "We have no further comment at this time and we ask that you respect the Laundrie's privacy at this time."
    An attorney for the Petito family, Richard Stafford, said they are not doing interviews.
    "They are grieving the loss of their beautiful daughter," Stafford said. "Gabby's family will make a statement at the appropriate time and when they are emotionally ready."

    Skeletal remains and clothing found
    The identification came hours after police in North Port said the remains that were found were skeletal and belonged to a human.

    "They are human remains, no doubt there. I would say that the remains were consistent with one individual, you know skeletal remains," police spokesperson Josh Taylor told CNN.

    Investigators also found clothing believed to be consistent with what Laundrie was wearing when he took off September 13, according to Taylor.

    Less than a week after Laundrie went missing last month, authorities in Wyoming found Petito's remains in a national forest. Her death was ruled a homicide by manual strangulation.


    On Wednesday, investigators also found a backpack and a notebook belonging to Laundrie, 23, near the remains while they were searching the Carlton Reserve in North Port, according to FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael McPherson.

    "The notebook to my understanding has not been opened. You know, that will need to be processed," Taylor said.

    A source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN the notebook is "possibly salvageable." The source said the notebook was "outside of the dry bag."

    "It had been clearly wet and they are going to use any potential means to dry that out before opening it," according to the source, who added: "They'll be very careful with it."

    The source said it is unclear how the notebook ended up outside the bag.

    When Taylor was asked about whether a weapon was found, he said he could not comment.

    When asked if there is an ongoing search for the murderer of Gabby Petito, he responded, "That is certainly not in the North Port Police Department's purview."

    During a search with police, Chris Laundrie was the first to spot an item belonging to his son, according to Taylor.
