BOUNTY HUNTER GOES IT ALONE
Dog the Bounty Hunter has received more than 2,000 leads on Gabby Petito’s fugitive boyfriend but he’s not sharing them with the cops.
“I don’t pay much attention to those guys, just like they don’t pay any attention to me,” said the reality TV justice seeker. “In 45 years, I don’t call them up and say, ‘Hey, G-Man, what’s going on?’ And they don’t call me up and say, ‘Hey, Dog, where’s your leads?’”
CALLS POUR IN TO 833-TELLDOG
The famous bounty hunter said many of the calls on his personal hotline — 833-TELLDOG — have been positive. There is a $30,000 reward on the killer’s head.
Brian Laundrie, 23, went on the run September 10 when he returned home to Florida without Gabby after they had been on a cross-country van trip together.
Four days after he went on the lam, Gabby’s body was found in Wyoming. She was 22.
There’s no doubt Laundrie murdered Gabby. Why the hell else is he running from the law?
“I’ll find him,” says the 68-year-old bounty hunter.
If his “collar” rate is any indication, he will — Dog has captured more than 10,000 fugitives over the course of his career.
SIGHTING REPORTED ON APPALACHIAN TRAIL
Meanwhile, a Florida man who is hiking the Appalachian Trail told police he is positive it was Laundrie who stopped and talked to him on a deserted road near the trail in North Carolina on Saturday.
“There is no doubt in my mind I spoke to Brian Laundrie — none whatsoever,” said Dennis Davis, 53. “Dog the Bounty Hunter’s daughter sent me an audio tape of Laundrie’s voice and the voice was the same I heard.”
The man stopped his car where Davis was hiking near the border of North Carolina and Tennessee and asked for directions to California via back roads.
He appeared to be “lost and dazed,” Davis said, and muttering about being in an argument with his girlfriend and that he had to get to California to see her.
Laundrie is familiar with the Appalachian Trail, having once lived there by himself for months.
The Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking path in the world, stretching more than 2,200 miles (3,500 kilometers) from Georgia to Maine.
