Despite an ankle injury, Dog the Bounty Hunter says he’s still on the lookout for Gabby Petito’s fiance, Brian Laundrie.
Despite an ankle injury, DOG the Bounty Hunter maintains he’s still looking for Gabby Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie.
Lyssa Chapman, the reality TV star’s daughter, said on Twitter on Sunday that her father, 68, had returned to Colorado.
While he’s away, Dog is claimed to have put together a “skilled squad” to continue the quest in Florida, according to WFLA.
He’ll keep processing leads in Colorado and is soliciting donations to keep the “expensive” hunt going.
“Dog has not ended his search for Brian Laundrie,” Dog’s spokeswoman Jennifer Willingham said in a statement to the New York Post.
“Dog and Francie Chapman have a lot of things to take care of at home in Colorado, including Dog’s ankle injuries during the search.”
Lyssa Chapman teased that her father isn’t “given up” on the hunt, adding, “the bait is laid.”
She tweeted that he’ll be returning to Colorado for a while to “take care of some business.”
According to Chapman: “We’re still looking for #BrianLaundrie, and we’ve set up a team in Florida to help. I’ll share whatever I can with you, as usual.” She tweeted in response to a supporter who expressed hope that the squad would not give up: “We’re not giving up… It’s not uncommon for us (including you) to put so much pressure on a fugitive that he returns. The hook is in place.” For the most up-to-date information, visit our Dog the Bounty Hunter live blog.
Chapman claims she’s been warned not to publish “active information” just days after tempting her fans with the possibility of “major news” about the hunt.
“I’ve been requested not to share active information owing to the massive quantity of media around the case,” she told her tens of thousands of Twitter followers.
It’s unclear who told Dog’s daughter to keep her information private.
After obtaining information that the Laundries stayed at the Fort de Soto campsite and neighboring islands on September 6, Dog has been exploring the area for weeks.
According to The Sun, his staff has received almost 3,000 calls.
The majority of the calls, Dog admitted, are from supporters shouting “Hello, We Love the Dog!” but the others are “quite excellent.”
“It doesn’t matter how [or]what degree to obtain someone,” he remarked.
The bounty hunter appeared to uncover a Monster energy drink can while exploring the Fort de Soto encampment.
According to Fox News, the gold can appeared to be free of corrosion and faded colors.
The Monster logo and lettering were visible on the front of the can. It’s unclear who left the item at the location.
The search for Laundrie, according to Dog’s crew, grows more perilous the longer the fugitive is on the loose… Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
