TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — With Brian Laundrie’s research capturing worldwide attention, a familiar face has been thrust into the national spotlight.
Duane “Dog” Chapman, who starred on A&E’s “Dog the Bounty Hunter” for eight seasons, made headlines this week after he was seen knocking on the door of Laundrie’s parents’ home in North Port and reportedly searched Fort De Soto for laundry signs.
“We’ve received an avalanche of tips on Brian Laundrie’s whereabouts,” Dog told E! News. “There is a remarkable amount of information shared by neighbours, friends and people who may have seen Brian very recently. For those close to Brian, I would like to reaffirm that our goal is to capture him alive. His best chance is if we bring him. If family and friends want to help Brian, they will help us locate him so we can help end this peacefully.
As he returns to the headlines, Variety reports that Chapman is plotting his return to reality television.
According to the report, the bounty hunter has worked with production company Thinkfactory to launch a new show about his daily life and exploits.
Authorities are still looking for Laundrie after her family reported her missing on September 17. On Tuesday, family attorney Steven Bertolino confirmed that Laundrie went camping with his parents in September, before his fiancée Gabby Petito went missing. Laundrie is the only person interested in Petito’s death.
Last week, the FBI said the US District Court in Wyoming had issued a federal arrest warrant for Laundrie as part of a grand jury indictment for her “activities after the death of Gabrielle Petito”. , and alleged that Laundrie “knowingly and with intent to defraud, used one or more unauthorized access devices, namely a Capitol One Bank debit card” and personal identification numbers for two accounts.
