His parents informed the FBI and the North Port Police Department that they were planning to visit the park to search for their son. They walked the trail while they were followed by the authority. Likewise, Steve said,

“As they went further in, Chris ventured off the trail into the woods. He was zigzagging in different areas, law enforcement was doing the same thing. And Roberta Laundrie was walking down the trail. At some point, Chris locates what’s called a dry bag. The dry bag is a white bag, laying in the woods, say 20 feet or so off the trail.”
