Dog The Bounty Hunter is joining the massive manhunt for the suspected killer, Brian Laundrie, and the reality star has already started his search in Florida.
Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman was just spotted knocking on the front door of the Laundrie’s Florida home and posing for photographers while walking the family’s property. As you know, the famed bounty hunter is well known for his ability to track criminals and has taken part in several high-profile cases in the past.
A reporter covering the story shot an iPhone video of Dog entering the Laundrie’s property and attempting to contact his parents. Chapman can be seen exiting a grey jeep and walking the perimeter of the Florida home. The reporter, Brian Entin, questions Dog as he exits the area — asking if he is trying to capture the suspect. Of course, Chapman answers by saying “you know” why I am here.

The ‘Dog The Bounty’ Hunter star gives the media his tip line phone number and says his team is checking the messages every 10 minutes. Obviously, the hope is that someone watching the footage will call in the information to the reality star. Plus, we are guessing he will have the cameras rolling as he approaches any tip coming to him.
At this point, it’s unclear if the Dog actually has any information surrounding the disappearance of Brian Laundrie, or if it is just a bit of a publicity ploy by showing up to the scene. Interestingly, someone off-camera asks the reality star if it is all “just for publicity” as he exits the property.

A spokesperson for Duane Chapman says he simply wants to bring justice for the Petito family and feels compelled to get out there and use his skills in the manhunt. The Dog is famously one of the best at capturing people and bring them to the authorities.
The reality star says he is officially volunteering his services at this point and has not yet made contact with investigators who are overseeing the case. In fact, it appears officers on the scene stop Chapman and question him as he leaves the Laundrie property. The FBI is currently handling the investigation in this case, and Dog says he will turn over any information he receives to the authorities.
Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman Is Asking For Tips On The Case…
At this moment, Dog has traveled to the area where Brian was allegedly the last scene and is gathering more intel. As in the video, Dog is asking for anyone who might have information to call 833-TELLDOG, his personal tipline. Also, he wants to make sure everyone knows any tip called in is confidential.
Earlier this week, an arrest warrant was issued for Brian Laundrie connected to the death of his 23-year-old fiancee, Gabby Petito. The suspect is currently a “person of interest” in the death which was ruled a homicide. The body of the young girl was found near the area where the couple had been traveling. “While this warrant allows law enforcement to arrest Mr. Laundrie, the FBI and our partners across the country continue to investigate the facts and circumstances of Ms. Petito’s homicide,” an FBI spokesperson said.
The manhunt is still ongoing.
