Dog the Bounty Hunter says he’s already closing in on Brian Laundrie as he officially launched his search for the 23-year-old fugitive who is sought for questioning in Gabby Petito’s disappearance and death.
“We’re here at the island,” the reality TV star, whose real name is Duane Chapman, said on Twitter Wednesday. “This would be and could be the perfect spot for him to hide. Not too many people out here but there’s a lot of environmental things that we’re going to fight.
“So here we go,” he said. “The search now is really on. The search has just begun.”
He wrote in the tweet that “boat crews and ground teams have been called in and we have search and rescue dogs deployed.”
Chapman, 68, was on Florida’s Marco Island Tuesday and was setting up a home base in the Sunshine State from which to launch his search for Laundrie, a source close to the celebrity manhunter
