  • Dog the Bounty Hunter said his tip line for the Gabby Petito case has gotten a lot of good lead.

  • However, he said he is not coordinating the search for Brian Laundrie or sharing tips with police.

  • Police have been looking for Laundrie, a stakeholder in Petito’s case, for two weeks.

Dog the Bounty Hunter said he’s getting lots of helpful tips in his search for Brian Laundrie, a person involved in the Gabby Petito murder case, but those tips aren’t being shared with law enforcement.

The reality TV star, whose real name is Duane Chapman, joined the search last week when he was seen knocking on the door of Laundrie’s childhood home in North Port, Florida, urging people to contact him for tips.

“We’re getting calls like crazy. I think the success of this bounty hunt will be the tip,” Chapman said Newsmax on Thursday. “Over 2,000 calls and about 20% of those are positive leads.”

Many of the calls are words of encouragement or suggestions, Chapman said, but a fifth of them are helpful.

When asked by the Newsmax hosts if he’s working with law enforcement officers, who have been looking for Laundrie for two weeks, Chapman said no.

He said he can’t call them and ask for directions, and that “they can’t call me and say, ‘Hey, dog, where are your directions?'”

Chapman said he usually doesn’t coordinate with the police.

“Now if someone is in a house and they start shooting at us, we call Big Brother, and they send the SWAT and the dogs and get the man,” he said.

Chapman also said he believes Laundrie is still alive, although he has no evidence of that, and that he “apologies for the expression, right on his tail.”

He encourages people to keep calling 1-833-TELL-DOG with tips. The FBI is asking the public to contact 1-800-CALL-FBI with tips about Laundrie or Petito.

Officials have been searching for Laundrie since his parents reported him missing on Sept. 17, days before Petito’s body was found near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Laundromat had been staying with his parents since September 1, when he returned alone from a long road trip he took with Petito, his girlfriend. Petito’s family reported her missing on September 11.

Laundry’s Parents called the police when Chapman first showed up at their home, Insider’s Natalie Musumeci reported.
