Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman wants his fans and followers to help him find Gabby Petito’s fiance so badly, he is offering up $10,000 for tips leading to the arrest of Brian Laundrie. According to reports, the money will not just be for tips directly sent to Dog and his team but added to the standing reward which has ballooned to over $100,000.
A spokesperson for Dog’s team says the reality star is determined to bring closure to Gabby’s family and hopes by upping the reward it will bring Laundrie to justice.
Reward For Capture Of Brian Laundrie Is Now Over $150,000
As you know, the reward amount is now pushing $170,000 and was donated by private individuals who are supporting the Petito family.
Dog The Bounty Hunter has been in Florida for several days searching for the fugitive. The manhunt started with a trip to Brian’s parents’ home, where they promptly called 911 on the reality star. But, a tip lead the team to a nearby campground where they allegedly uncovered evidence that Brian might have stayed there at some point after the killing.
Following the campsite search, Dog gathered new intelligence which pointed to Brian possibly hiding out on an island near the coast of Florida. The reality star posted a video of himself seemingly preparing to jump on a boat and continue the search around the island. Interestingly, the team used search dogs in their manhunt and came up with a used Monster Energy can which they believe might be connected to the fugitive.

“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,” Dog captioned the video.
At this moment, Dog is still on the island searching and says the rough terrain is slowing him down. Of course, the team believes they are getting very close to the capture.
As we reported, DTBH is getting help from others even when he isn’t behind the new push to capture Brian Laundrie. In the past few days, someone is flying an aerial sky banner behind an airplane, as a message to Laundre. “Aloha…Brian Laundrie — Dog,” the sign reads. Shockingly, it isn’t from the reality star himself, but he is pumped that someone paid to get a message to the fugitive to call the Dog to turn himself in.

“Frankly, I wish I had thought of that, but it wasn’t our team,” Dog said.
He continued, “I’d love to shake the hand of whoever is behind the banner, I’ll tell you that.”
At this point, Brian Laundrie is still on the run and the FBI has issued an arrest warrant for him. So, Dog is still hoping tips continue to roll into his person tipline — 833-TELLDOG. As we reported, Dog’s team is checking the messages every ten minutes and it will remain completely anonymous.
