Dog the Bounty Hunter, has submitted his clues of Brian Laundrie potentially appearing in a Florida park to the FBI.
According to The New York Post, Duane “Dog” Chapman has found several objects on one of the islands near Fort De Soto Park over the weekend.
The items could suggest that Laundrie, the fiance of deceased Gabby Petito, had been kayaking around a Florida park at the mouth of Tampa Bay. It was also where the Laundrie family went camping earlier in September after he returned home without Gabby Petito.
Officials have been scouting for him around the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County, about 15 miles from his parents’ home and nearly 64 miles away from Fort De Soto Park.
The FBI will examine the uncovered objects for any DNA connection to 23-year-old Laundrie.
Meanwhile, Dog is still on a mission to clarify the sighting of Laundrie’s presence close to the Appalachian Trail.
A Florida hiker was confident he spoke to the man authorities have been scouting for. According to him, the purported Brian Laundrie had asked for directions to California, saying he was in a fight with his girlfriend.
The witness said the Laundrie lookalike was driving a white or light-colored pickup truck and sported a dark banana hat.
“Tracking a fugitive is a marathon, not a sprint,” Dog said, according to the Post. “We are continuing to search for Brian Laundrie. The longer he is on the run, the more dangerous this becomes.”
Dog’s daughter said they had been processing nearly 3,000 tips about the person-of-interest classified man connected to the Petito case. Her death was ruled a homicide by the FBI last month.
While the search for Laundrie has continued to the third week, the Petito family believes he is still alive and in hiding, according to Fox News.
Brian Laundrie returned home in Petito’s van without her on Sept. 1. He was seen leaving his house on Sept. 14, and his parents reported him missing three days later before a federal warrant was issued.
