The mother of Brian Laundrie reportedly called 911 on Dog the Bounty Hunter when he arrived in connection to the Gabby Petito homicide case.

According to a report from Fox News, Duane “Dog” Chapman was at the Laundrie’s home in North Port, Fla., on Saturday. An audio recording of Roberta Laundrie calling 911 was released on Monday.

The recording has a dispatcher saying, “The female, Roberta… called in on 911,” on the recording. That dispatcher adds that Roberta Laundrie “referenced a situation with the male.”

Police were in the area when she called dispatchers and went to their home.

Mother of Brian Laundrie Would Not Speak with Chapman in Gabby Petito Case

Chapman told Fox News that, before arriving at the Laundrie home, he did have a conversation with North Port.

“It’s a shame they wouldn’t speak with us,” Chapman said Monday. “The police said we were welcome to knock on the door so we did. I wanted to tell the Laundries that our goal is to find Brian and bring him in alive.”

“We’ve been called to the house numerous times for all sorts of issues: media, protestors, celebrity searchers,” said North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor. “It’s not something normal. If the family calls and is concerned, we will respond like we would for anyone.”

Brian Laundrie went missing last week. It was just days before an FBI-led team found the remains of his fiancée, Gabby Petito, at a Teton Range campsite in Wyoming.

Chapman Said He Arrived At Family’s Florida Home Because He Believes in Second Chances

Gabby Petito was probably last seen alive in late August at a Jackson Hole, Wyo., restaurant. By Sept. 1, Laundrie got home at his parents’ house in North Port. He arrived there while being the wheel of a van belonging to Petito.

Over the weekend, Chapman told Fox News he went to the family home first because he believes in second chances. “And the dad can still reach out to me, through social media,” Chapman said. “Let’s get the kid captured alive. Alive.”

The bounty hunter said that he’s got 1,000 leads on Laundrie.

“[W]e’re going through all those leads,” he said to Fox News. Chapman added those pictures show Brian Laundrie at numerous locations. He told the news outlet that he and his team are going to keep workig on those leads.

In fact, Chapman declared to Fox News that “I would say within 48 hours, we probably will have a location where we start the tracking at.”

Well, his involvement comes at the same time some reports are stating that law enforcement will see the search “scaled back and targeted.”
