Television personality Duane “Dog” Chapman shared with “Fox & Friends” that in the following 48 hours, officials will have a specific location to start the search for Brian Laundrie, who allegedly killed fiancé, Gabby Petito, 22, — sparking a nationwide manhunt. Petito’s family reported her missing Sept. 11. Her body was found near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming on Sept. 19th and ruled a homicide.
The discovery of the remains came after a multi-state search for the young woman reported missing by her Florida family and captivated the nation and inspired an outpouring of prayers and concern for her well-being.
“We’ve gotten over a thousand leads… So we’re going through all those leads,” said Chapman. “It’s incredible pictures of him here, they’re here. We’re going through all those leads right now.”
“I would say within 48 hours, we probably will have a location where we start the tracking at.”
The famous bounty hunter joined the hunt on Sept. 25 and visited Brian Laundrie’s home the following day.
Chapman told Fox News, “The reason I went to Mr. [Christopher] Laundrie is I carry a reputation with me. The reputation is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’s gonna get you, but he gives you a second chance.’”
“We had a lot of requests that I get in on this,” Chapman said while he was on Honeymoon in Florida. “This is what I do for a living, for 45 years.”
Chapman also asked for prayers.
“I’d like all the Christians out there to start praying,” said Chapman. “What they haven’t asked for is prayer, now it’s time for prayer.”
If anyone has information on Laundrie, please contact authorities or 833-TELLDOG.
