Gabby Petito Case: Lyssa Chapman Announces That Dog the Bounty Hunter is Looking Into Two New Leads

by Samantha Whidden

On Saturday (October 2nd) Lyssa Chapman, the daughter of Dog the Bounty Hunter (aka Duane Chapman), announced on her Twitter page an update about the famous bounty hunter’s progress in the Gabby Petito Case

“Update: Following up on ALL leads,” Lyssa stated. She also said that she has seen the two leads coming out of the FDS campsite. She also saw the woman whose husband believes he spoke to Brian Laundrie. “We are working on confirming these [leads].”

In a separate tweet, Lyssa stated, “As a friendly reminder, no lead or tip is too small. If someone publicly sends a lead, please don’t attack them. They are doing their civil service. Again ALL leads are appreciated!!!”

Lyssa then said she also checks her direct messages consistently if tipsters prefer to make their tip about the Gabby Petito Case private. “You can send it thru Direct Message or Txt 833-TELLDOG.”

Currently, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Lyssa are now part of the search for Gabby Petito’s fiance, Brian Laundrie. As previously reported, Laundrie was last seen on September 14th. He was originally supposed to be hiking in the Carlton Reserve in Sarasota County. His parents filed a missing person’s report on September 17th. FBI and law enforcement have been trying to track down the missing 23-year-old since.

Brian Laundrie is considered a person of interest in Gabby Petito’s disappearance and death.

Dog Bounty Hunter Says Tips Keep Coming in About the Gabby Petito Case 

According to Dog the Bounty Hunter, tips are continuously being sent to him about the Gabby Petito Case. He joined the hunt for Brian Laundrie last week, stating he understands how Gabby’s parents feel.

“Because I lost a daughter at about the same age, I know what the parents feel like,” Dog the Bounty Hunter shared with Fox News recently. “And you want justification. You want the guy behind bars.”

The media outlet also spoke to Dog the Bounty Hunter’s new wife, Francie Chapman, about the Gabby Petito Case and how it personally affects her and the famous bounty hunter. “Dog and I had our chance to say our goodbyes to [her previous husband] Bob and [Dog’s previous wife] Beth when they were sick. We knew that they were going home. We got closure. Even though we still had to go through the grieving process. We got to say goodbye.”

Dog the Bounty Hunter previously stated that he is refusing to share any information he has on the Gabby Petito Case with police. He did clarify that since he and law enforcement works differently, he doesn’t necessarily have to share any of the tips he has with them. 

“I guess we kind of do the same thing,” Dog the Bounty Hunter explained. “But I really don’t pay much attention. Like they don’t pay too much attention to me.”

Dog the Bounty Hunter then noted that he and authorities work on different planes and very rarely interact. “I can’t Gallup and say, ‘Hey, G-Man… where’s your leads?’ And they don’t call me and say, ‘Hey, Dog, where’s your leads?’ So I have no idea.”
