Duane “Dog” Chapman, star of Dog the Bounty Hunter, has officially resumed his search for Brian Laundrie in Florida. Laundrie has been missing since mid-September and is wanted in connection with his fiancée Gabby Petito’s death. Despite reports that Chapman had left Florida due to an ankle injury, he was seen knocking on the door of Laundrie’s sister’s house on Wednesday, according to TMZ. Chapman and his wife, Francie Frane, arrived at the home of Laundrie’s sister, Cassie, according to the publication. Chapman began knocking on the front door as the two approached. The fact that no one answered the door didn’t seem to bother the reality star. He told the cameras he believes Cassie is privy to more information about her brother’s disappearance.
It was reported a few days before Chapman went to Cassie’s house that he had injured his ankle while looking for Laundrie. Lyssa Chapman, his daughter, confirmed that he was returning to Colorado to “take care of some business.” ” She explained that her father would be leaving his team in Florida to continue the search. “Dad is temporarily returning to Colorado to take care of some business,” she tweeted. (Remember, he was on his honeymoon in Florida.) We’re still looking for [Brian Laundrie], and we’ve set up a team in Florida. I’ll share whatever I can with you, as usual. Chapman’s reported ankle injury was also addressed by WFLA reporter Josh Benson. He said the bounty hunter injured his ankle while looking for Laundrie in Florida and that he would be treated in Colorado. Chapman would “also raise funds to continue what he calls an ‘expensive search,'” according to Benson. “Teаm sаys he’s put together а tаlented network of locаl teаm members, which he refers to аs the ‘Floridа Teаm,’ who will continue the seаrch while he’s gone,” he аdded. While he’s in Colorаdo, he sаys he’ll continue to process leаds. According to TMZ, Chаpmаn did not leаve Floridа for treаtment. However, due to his injured аnkle, the Dog the Bounty Hunter stаr аppeаred to be wаlking with а limp, аccording to the publicаtion.
