Charlotte, NC -- Federal agents are inside the home of the Charlotte author at the center of a scandal involving CIA Director David Petraeus, who resigned Friday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations confirms that it has agents inside Paula Broadwell's Dilworth home.

While agents on scene would not confirm what they were looking for, nearly a dozen agents were seen carrying boxes and taking photographs inside the home.

Broadwell, the biographer who wrote a book about retired four-star general Petraeus, 60, has not been seen at her home since the news connecting her to an extramarital affair with Petraeus.

Broadwell spent a year with Petraeus in Afghanistan from July 2010 through July 2011 interviewing him for a book she co-wrote, "All-In: The Education of General David Petraeus." This was during the period while he led the International Security Assistance Force there.

On Friday, it was announced that Petraeus tendered his resignation to President Barack Obama, citing the affair.

An investigation started with harassing emails sent by Broadwell to another woman and eventually led the FBI to discover the affair, U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Saturday.

The official said the FBI investigation began several months ago with a complaint against Broadwell, a 40-year-old graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and an Army Reserve officer.
