Laundrie, 23, went missing early last month after returning from a road trip without partner Gabby, 22, and refusing to cooperate with an investigation into her disappearance.
Gabby’s body was later discovered in a remote area of Wyoming on September 19 and an autopsy confirmed she had been strangled.
The FBI has launched a manhunt for Laundrie, 23, and named him as the person of interest in Gabby’s death.
Gabby was last seen on August 27, when she apologized to restaurant staff after Laundrie had an argument with them.
Laundrie then briefly returned to his parents in Florida on September 1 before disappearing, supposedly telling his parents he was going on a hike.
Human remains were found next to a backpack and a notepad belonging to Laundrie at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park on Wednesday.
It was previously reported by Fox News that the remains consisted of “bones.”
The FBI said today that it was able to identify the laundry through dental records.
Laundrie family attorney Steve Bertolino said in a statement to Fox News: “Chris and Roberta Laundrie have been advised that the remains found yesterday on the reservation are indeed Brian’s.
“We have no further comments at this time and we ask that you respect the privacy of the Laundrie family at this time. “
Before the body was confirmed to be Laundrie, Mr Bertolino told CNN on Wednesday: “There is a high probability that it is Brian’s body, but we will wait for the forensic results to verify it. “
Gabby and Laundrie embarked on their trip in early July from Long Island in New York, where her parents live.
As they traveled through Kansas, Colorado, Utah and the West, Gabby documented their “van life” on social media.
She posted her last photo to Instagram on August 25, the same day she last spoke to her mother by phone.
They were seen falling out in August, with Utah Police posting a video showing Gabby tearfully describing an argument she had with Laundrie.
He was later named a Person of Interest in her disappearance, and on September 23, a Wyoming federal grand jury charged him with the fraudulent use of Gabby’s bank debit card.
It was alleged that he spent $ 1,000 or more between August 30 and September 1.
He had not been charged with Gabby’s death.

Earlier this week, Gabby’s mother said she had concerns for her daughter, but believed Laundrie would “take care” of her.
Nicole Schmidt said 60 Minutes Australia : “I felt safe because she was with Brian, and I felt like she would be fine… I thought he would take care of her. ”
She said she suspected Laundrie’s parents as to what had happened to Gabby, saying, “The silence speaks volumes. “
She added: “I think they probably know, if not all, that they know most of the information. I would love to ask them face to face, ‘Why are you doing this?’ “
She also said in the interview that she supported her daughter’s choice to travel with Laundrie and described it as “polite and calm”.
Gabby’s stepfather Jim Schmidt said Laundrie was “hiding” from authorities and told the interview that he and his wife “want revenge … and justice.”
