Dog the Bounty Hunter Says Former Navy SEALs Helping Brian Laundrie Search
By Emma Nolan  *  October 1, 2021

Dog the Bounty Hunter has been joined by a K9 unit as well as former Navy SEALs and Marines as he continues his search for Brian Laundrie in Florida.

Laundrie, 24, vanished shortly before his fiancée Gabby Petito was found dead on September 19.

Reality TV personality Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, said on Thursday that he felt “real good” about how his hunt was going and expected to close in on Laundrie imminently.

Chapman has also contracted a private search and rescue K-9 team to aid in his search of an island called Egmont Key, which is off the coast of St. Petersburg, Florida.

“We got a bunch of volunteers,” he told Fox News. “Most of them are former law enforcement, former Navy SEALs and Marines.”

Chapman has an anonymous tip line at 833-TELL-DOG for people who do not want to contact the authorities directly.

Anyone with information on Laundrie’s whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI or 303-629-7171.

    Call me pessimistic, but this is what I think Brian Laundrie will say once caught: Gabby Petito went crazy and started attacking me and I fended her off. She got upset and walked off saying she didn’t want to be around me anymore, take the van and she would find her own way home, etc… so he left. She was alive when he left her.

    He can say he was distraught but went home due to the relationship being over and tried to take his mind off it by mowing the lawn, going camping, etc.

    I don’t know if any amount of physical circumstantial evidence can tie him to the murder. Defensive wounds can be explained.

    I’m only saying this because we can probably expect to be frustrated by a hung jury should he be charged and tried for Gabby’s murder.

    If something happens in a remote region, the person that emerges alive has the advantage in the storytelling.

    Although the one flaw in the above story is any prudent person would call Gabby’s parents and tell them what happened and say he felt uncomfortable leaving her across the country but he can’t see any other way out. Or, participate in helping the parents find her. Neither of which are against the law to not do either.

    Dog took on this gig so he could have an all expense paid honeymoon trip for his new (#6?) bride. Wonder if Dog made a call on All Points Logistics to get his volunteers?

    This dude Laundrie is either long gone from that AO or has become lunch for an alley-gator or a shark. News on him has filled up the news feeds so much that we can hardly find any FGS. I hope he “resists” arrest when they find his POS ass.

    Wrongful death suit against the Idaho popo in

    • Green Thumb says:

      The Dog.

      He is a felon, so no firearms. Think Airsoft!

      He will track down Laundrie like his forefathers did, although The Dog probably has about the same amount of Native American blood in him that the False Commander “Phony” Phil Monkress (CEO of All-Points Logistics does.

      ANd the technique that The Dog used: knocking on the door.

        “ANd the technique that The Dog used: knocking on the door.”

        Brilliant! Brilliant I tell ya.

      • rgr769 says:

        I was surprised to discover his felony conviction was strictly minor league. He was waiting in the car for his buddy who went into a house to score some weed. The buddy got into a fight with the weed dealer and shot and killed him. Dog was charged with felony murder because he was part of the endeavor to buy weed, which was a felony at the time in Texas. Even the county sheriff vouched for him. He only served a couple of years. So, when Dog says he was a “killer” it is embellishing.

      • Anonymous says:

        Focus on fundamdentals… you’d be surprised who don’t.

  3. 2banana says:

    Former NAVY SEALS…

    How many are fake?

    How many quit to avoid the death jab?

  4. Mason says:

    The other day he found this.

    When they told Dog “We’re looking for a monster out here” he took them way too literally.

  5. Storyteller says:

    Chapman is a media whore and hypocrite but if he catches the guy leaving the fbi looking stupid, I’ll buy him a beer.

    • ChipNASA says:

      The FeeBees don’t need any help.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        I have a Brother In Arms I served with who did a stint as a US Marshal after his Retirement and I say DON’T get him started on talking about Feebies, he’ll give you an earful about their incompetence!

    • 5JC says:

      He is a media whore but he is also a legit man hunter. It wouldn’t shock ne if he succeeded.

      • Green Thumb says:

        He tracks down the hardened criminals like the 85 year old man in the wheel chair.

        Then bounces them before they can show up.

        He then gives them a smoke, a bite of a sandwich and tells them to go with God.

      • Storyteller says:

        Ask anyone here in HI. He’s a fake. I worked with Ralph Thorson, dog is not a ” man hunter”.

  6. AW1Ed says:

    With luck, Laundrie is currently occupying a hole under the riverbank, as the main course for a hungry gator.

  7. Hatchet says:

    My Mom loved watching Chapman’s cheesy series years ago – me, not-so much(largely indifferent) but sure, if Chapman and a buncha of former Navy SEAL’s(hopefully, none previously profiled here) can locate and arrest Laundrie – as apparently the FBI hasn’t had any luck in that department – then I say ‘Sic ’em Dog..and Cats’! Kinda like KoB – my sneaking suspicion is – this just came along as a great photo/PR-opportunity with the potential for make’n good ‘ol Dwayne and Company a little extra gabbagoole$

    *shrug* Whatever. May the best Dog win.

  8. David says:

    Sure sounds lke Laundrie has been arraigned, tried, and convicted in the public eye. Freely admitting I don’t follow some of the sensationalist issues like this… on what objective evidence is he
    adjudged guilty?

    • ChipNASA says:

      Bruh, (no pun intended)
      No one is claiming he’s guilty of anything, yet, but, there is body camera footage showing significant evidence of an assault (possibly by both individuals involved) in a time period before he showed up back home alone, and then his girlfriend’s body was found, with enough evidence to allow authorities to have a warrant for his arrest generated… no one here (in the public media) seems to be trying him that I can see, other than raising eyebrows and such.
      Of course that’s just my opinion.

      • 5JC says:

        In my state police are REQUIRED to make an arrest if they go to a DV call and someone has injuries arising from the confrontation no matter how slight.

        I actually think this is a good idea.

        • ChipNASA says:

          I’m kinda torn on that BUT, better to take both parties in and let time and cooler heads prevail and maybe charge a not soo serious misdemeanor for DV and then let the folks sort it out later than to just let folks go and have *this* happen, not that it goes in that direction often, but, more often than not, DV situations go bad then self-mend.

    • KoB says:

      Mainly “person of interest” right now David. Highly suspicious activities before, during, and since her body was found. The Idaho popo had possible ‘reasonable cause” to hold him earlier and let him go.

      As pointed out by Daisy Cutter above, unless they have some really good evidence on him, getting a conviction may prove difficult. The old, “,,.if only one story is to be told, make sure it is your story.” I haven’t been following the story, per se, but the news feeds have been overrun with this for the last week or more. Might have a lot to do with her Social Media “career”.

      • rgr769 says:

        No, it was the Moab Utah PD that could have arrested him. There are no reports I have heard that Laundrie committed an offense in Idaho or Wyoming, other than his use of her debit card, which was unknown until after he made it back to Florida.

        • KoB says:

          Mea culpa rgr 769, you are correct. Proofreading and not multitasking with 6 maybe 9 windows open at the same time could be my friend. Hey least I was in the right time zone, even if I typed in the wrong state.


    • OldManchu says:

      Dude seriously. We get it. We too understand the law. But dude… seriously.

  9. MarineDad61 says:

    With sightings and spottings from around Florida,
    both far ends of North Carolina,
    other states,
    Canada, Mexico, and The Bahamas….

    What is the probability that only Dogman is hot on the correct trail?

    To see the cliffhanger outcome,
    Tune in tomorrow.
    Same dog time.
    Same dog channel.

    • Deckie says:

      Yeah a man hiking on the Appalachian Trail swears he saw Laundrie and that he asked for directions to California using backroads only. Jut saw the news alert a couple hours ago.

      I never got into Dog or his show, but the thought of him (as unlikely as it may be) outdoing the FBI amuses me.

      • rgr769 says:

        Whadya expect from the fan belt inspectors? I doubt they even have 13 agents on the case like they did the famed Bubba Wallace “noose ” case.

  10. Carlton says:

    This “Dog” character is an attention whore, and the media seems very accommodating.

    This entire production (yes, production) seems life a “false flag” distraction to me.

    Of course, I’m old and cynical.

    • Green Thumb says:

      He did get that billionaire make-up heir rapist in Mexico….

      • CWORet says:

        I was going to bring that up as well. That was before all the DTBH hype, but they no shzt went into Mehico and arrested that sick pr!ck. Then I think THEY were arrested for a while. Might have to Google that case. Anyhow, I do see it as publicity schtick on his part, but we’ll see.

    • nobunny says:

      Old + cynical = accurate BS o’meter

    Just wait until Britney Spears weighs in on this
    now that she’s free to speak.

    • rgr769 says:

      Leave our Britney alone!!! I hope she posts some more nude selfies. That bod is holding up quite well. Who cares what she thinks about current events.

      • MarineDad61 says:

        With Britney about to turn 40,
        I wonder how many (now) 50 year olds
        (still) think they have a shot.
        Caged heat.

    • Green Thumb says:

      I am waiting for LaChina James.

  12. When will Brians family hang out the dirty Laundrie and tell the LEO’S what they really know about their dirty laundrie POS son.

  13. QMC says:

    If Dog the Bounty Hunter finds him before the Feds I’m going to laugh. A lot.

  14. MarineDad61 says:

    A Doggy daughter has spoken.
    The estranged daughter.

    [One of Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughters has dismissed his high-profile pursuit of Brian Laundrie as a “publicity stunt.”

    “He needs to back off and let the FBI handle it,” Cecily Chapman, 28, told the Sun of her estranged 68-year-old dad, Duane Chapman.]

    Headline –
    [Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter calls Brian Laundrie hunt a ‘publicity stunt’]

  15. MarineDad61 says:

    Duane Chapman was way off.
    Old Dog couldn’t sniff out some bones.
    Not good for pitching a New Old Dog show.
