Brian Laundrie's father Christopher appeared to break down while talking to an FBI agent after partial human remains were found near the fugitive's favorite trial.
The Sun obtained a video of a federal officer speaking with Brian's parents when his mother Roberta is seen wiping a tear from her husband's face.
Moments later, the news broke that authorities found property belonging to Brian.
Roberta and Chris joined the FBI's search this morning at the 24,565-acre Carlton Reserve. Brian was last seen on September 13 and told his parents he was headed for a hike at the park.
Earlier, the Laundrie family attorney told reporters, "Chris and Roberta Laundrie went to the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park this morning to search for Brian. The FBI and NPPD were informed last night of Brian’s parents’ intentions and they met Chris and Roberta there this morning."
Law enforcement sources told NBC News that after the property was found, the partial remains were discovered. Officers found the remains in an area inside the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park that was previously underwater due to heavy rains.
A cadaver dog and medical examiner were called to the scene.

The FBI has yet to comment on the matter but is expected to hold a press conference later today.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the search for Brian is currently in the fourth week. He is the only person of interest in Gabby Petito's murder and was the last person seen with the slain 22-year-old vlogger.
He returned home from their 2-month cross-country road trip on September 1 without his fiancée. He hired a lawyer and refused to speak to the police or Gabby's parents.
Gabby's remains were found days later inside Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park. The autopsy revealed she died from strangulation and she had been dead for 3-4 weeks.
