Gabby Petito Case: Dog the Bounty Hunter Flies “Aloha Brian Laundrie” Banner Around Florida
Dog the Bounty Hunter swore to track down Gabby Petito’s boyfriend, Brian Laundrie. And now that he’s closing in, he’s sending a message to Laundrie via a banner flown around by plane.
Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is focusing his efforts on Fort De Soto Park near St. Petersburg, Florida. We know Brian Laundrie and his parents visited the park on Sept. 6-8, according to park documents. But Dog believes Laundrie never left the park with his parents.
So, the bounty hunter’s been scoping out several islands close to the park where Laundrie could be hiding. He’s brought on “boat crews,” “ground teams,” and private K-9 units to try and sniff out Gabby Petito’s boyfriend.
While Laundrie still hasn’t been located, Dog did discover a recently used campsite and a Monster can on one of the islands. But he said in a recent Instagram post that “Chapman and his team found no conclusive evidence that Laundrie was still on Egmont Key.”
But Dog the Bounty Hunter isn’t giving up hope just yet. Another tactic he’s using to find Gabby Petito’s boyfriend is flying a banner around the islands off the coast of Florida. “Aloha Brian Laundrie,” the banner reads, signed “Dog.” You can see the banner for yourself in the tweet below.
He could be flying it around for any number of reasons. Dog likes to try and get in the head of the people he’s hunting down, usually by making phone calls to the fugitive, according to 97.3 The Dawg. While he can’t do that now because he doesn’t have Laundrie’s number, Dog’s not afraid to improvise.
Every time Laundrie potentially sees the banner or hears the plane flying around, it could serve as a reminder that the whole world is after him.
