As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Dog the Bounty Hunter has inserted himself into the search for Brian Laundrie. Although the famous convicted murderer turned bounty hunter hasn’t been able to pick up any additional clues in his own search, Dog has made statements over the last week that suggest they are closing in on Brian.
Dog the Bounty Hunter originally admitted that he is now conducting his own search for the fiancé of Gabby Petito after he reserved a slew of calls for him to take action. It’s been reported that he and his new bride were on their honeymoon in Florida when he first went to knock on the door of Laundrie’s home.
After Dog had attempted to speak with the Laundrie’s, Brian’s mom Roberta called 911 on Dog. It was Dog’s response to that call that made it seem as though he was somewhat working with the police.
“It’s a shame they wouldn’t speak with us. The police said we were welcome to knock on the door so we did. I wanted to tell the Laundries that our goal is to find Brian and bring him in alive.”
Dog further made the point that by opening a hotline of his own, he hoped that people may feel more comfortable coming forward with information. “Somebody else knows where he’s at, where they dropped him off at or did they drop him off,” Chapman concluded. “That person is gonna tell us because again, we’re not the police. This is anonymous.”
How Closely Is Dog the Bounty Hunter Actually Working With Law Enforcement?
However, in a recent report by The Hill, even though Dog the Bounty Hunter has received thousands of tips, it’s believed that his operation is not sharing any information they may have received with law enforcement. And law enforcement is not sharing information with him.
“I guess we kind of do the same thing but I really don’t pay too much attention like they don’t pay too much attention to me,” Chapman told Newsmax. “After 45 years, I don’t call the police, they’re usually called on me — so I don’t know what they’re doing.”
“I can’t call up and say, ‘Hey, G-Man, what’s going where are your leads?’” Dog continued. “And they don’t call me and say, ‘Hey, Dog, where are your leads?’ — so I have no idea.”
“Now if someone’s in a house and they start firing at us then we call Big Brother and they send the SWAT and the dogs and get the guy. But I don’t check in with the police officers or the government to tell them what I’m doing and again they don’t check in with me to tell me what they’re doing.”
Dog claimed that 20-percent of the percent of tips to the 833-TELL-DOG hotline are “good leads.” Over the last couple of days, the bounty hunter had been quite active on Twitter detailing his search. He has not been active since September 30.
