Mysterious FBI search underway in Brevard County

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — A mysterious FBI search was underway in Brevard County on Thursday.

Investigators won’t say what’s being investigated but several agencies were circling a small dock on the edge of Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary.

The FBI also had divers in the water scouring the area below the surface looking for evidence in a case.

The FBI would only said the search is part of a case from an FBI office outside Florida.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said the FBI asked for help in a search for evidence.

Nearby residents said they’ve seen the investigators out on the water for the past few days and are wondering what’s going on.

“I wonder why they haven’t gotten here and told use about anything if they’re looking for something,” said a resident, who was only identified as Fiona.

Residents said the area is a quiet fishing spot.
