Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman posted a picture on Instagram of an aerial banner being flown in the sky by a small airplane. The banner is a clear message to Laundrie — if he can see it — to contact the reality star on his tip line to be brought into custody safely.
“Aloha, Brian Laundre — Dog,” the message read.
Shockingly, it wasn’t even the work of Dog The Bounty Hunter himself, but he is thanking the person who thought of the idea and hired the airplane to deliver the message. Turns out, the person behind the message isn’t a part of the reality star’s team. “Frankly, I wish I had thought of that, but it wasn’t our team,” he said.

Dog continued, “I’d love to shake the hand of whoever is behind the banner, I’ll tell you that.”
As we reported, Dog is joining the manhunt and searching for the suspected killer of Gabby Petito, Brian Laundrie. The reality star started his search by arriving at the Laundre family residence in Florida, which caused them to call 911 after he knocked on their door. The reality star reportedly got fresh intelligence that the parents booked spots at a local campground, and Dog’s team descended on the area.
After coming up empty, Dog pursued another lead which led the team to an island off the coast of Florida, which he says might be a good “hiding spot” for the fugitive. DTBH posted a video on Instagram from the location with the caption, “Video is from this morning — earlier today we launched an active and specific search in a key area based on the intelligence we are receiving and researching. Boat crews and ground teams have been called in and we have search and rescue dogs deployed.”

In the clip, Dog tells his followers the location is a “perfect place for him to hide” and that there are “not very many people” in the area. The reality star shared clips of himself combing through the area with tracking dogs and a large team of investigators. It should be noted, the team stumbled on a used Monster Energy can, which they believed to be from the fugitive.
Interestingly, it appears whoever is behind the new aerial banner is helping Dog get a message to Brian — if he can see it — to contact the reality star and turn himself in. As we reported, Dog is gathering tips to his tipline 833-TELLDOG, and has a team checking the messages every 10 minutes.

Fans are flooding Dog’s IG page with messages of support, including one saying, “Brian the world is watching you….turn yourself in!!!”
If the search is successful, Dog says he will be updating fans on his daughter Lyssa’s Instagram. “Dog and team are heading in from their search and will share their findings with Lyssa Chapman who’s running the tips command center from Hawaii and they will decide next steps with the team,” it read.
Adding, “Dog sends a thank you to everyone across the nation who is assisting them in the search with information.”
