Duane “Dog The Bounty Hunter” Chapman, 68, has joined the search for Gabby Petito‘s fiancé Brian Laundrie. The FBI has issued a warrant for the Florida man’s arrest, days after his partner Gabby’s body was found at a national park in Wyoming. The pair were on a cross-country road trip when Brian returned to Florida alone. The federal grand jury indictment was filed in connection to his activities following Gabby’s death, which included unauthorized use of a credit card. Law enforcement noted that the investigation into Gabby’s homicide is ongoing.

Now, it seems the reality star has joined the nationwide manhunt, appearing in a video which showed him poking his head around the side of Brian’s family home. Reporter Brian Entin posted footage of Dog visiting the house in North Port, Florida which appeared to show him knocking on the front door. As he headed back to his car, with new wife, Francie Frane by his side, an onlooker asked what he was doing there. “C’mon, you know,” he’s heard saying in the video.
“Dog and Francie have experienced extreme loss themselves,” the bounty hunter’s team said in statement released to FOX News. “Their hearts go out to Gabby’s family for what they’re going through and want to help bring justice for her death.” His team added that anyone with information about the case could send their tips to 833-TELLDOG. Fans of the reality star would know Dog recently tied the knot with Francie in a September 2 ceremony in Colorado.
His daughter Lyssa, told HollywoodLife during an exclusive interview prior to the wedding that her 68-year-old dad “still has pictures” of his late wife Beth Chapman “up all over his house.” As fans would recall, Dog sadly lost Beth to cancer two years ago. “I think God gave Francie to my dad,” she said.
“I think she came in a place [in] his life where he really needed help and strength, and she gives him that. Francie lost her husband mere months before Beth passed away to cancer. They met by chance. Francie’s husband was the yard person for our property [in Colorado]. My dad called [her] for yard work and they started talking over the phone. They didn’t pursue each other. It happened by chance. It happened by fate and it’s a really incredible love story.”
