Brian Laundrie updates – Dog the Bounty Hunter interview reveals he thinks missing man could be on the Appalachian Trail

DOG the Bounty Hunter has vowed to find Gabby Petito’s fiancé Brian Laundrie as the “hottest lead” points to the Appalachian Trail where he previously camped.

The TV star, real name Duane Chapman, has joined the hunt for 23-year-old Laundrie as he told Gabby Petito’s family he “wants to help bring justice for her death”.

Cops have been searching for Brian Laundrie for the last seven days after the 22-year-old travel blogger’s death during their cross-country road trip.

Petito’s body was found at the Spread Creek Dispersed Campground in the Bridger-Teton National Forrest last Sunday in Wyoming – more than a week after she was reported missing.

The search for Laundrie continues as the FBI visits his parents’ Florida home asking for personal items to “match his DNA.”

“The FBI requested some personal items belonging to Brian Laundrie to assist them with DNA matching and Brian’s parents provided the FBI with what they could,” the Laundries’ lawyer, Steven Bertolino, told Fox News on Sunday.

    But, McEwen doesn’t believe that Laundrie died in the wilderness as no buzzards have been circulating.

    He said: “Anything dead you find in the woods, you’re gonna look up, you’re gonna see buzzards flying like crazy.

    “No buzzards, no body is my theory. And I haven’t seen any buzzards flying.”

    The rancher said Laundrie could be anywhere as the search to find Laundrie enters its ninth day.


    Josh Taylor, of North Port Police Department, told Fox: “The FBI is now leading the search. I’m told, it will be scaled back and targeted based on intelligence.

    “Hopefully water will lower in areas hard to currently access.”

    Officers from NPPD will still be involved in the investigation.

    Experienced rancher Alan McEwen has cast doubt that Laundrie is hiding in the vast Carlton Reserve.

    He told Fox News: “Unless he’s got a butt like a duck and can float, he’s not in there.

    “I’ve been in the woods in and out all my life. I have learned a lot in my life, and one thing I know is no one is gonna survive out there for two weeks on foot.”
