Brian Laundrie’s parents call COPS on Dog the Bounty Hunter as Gabby Petito supporters SLAM their silence

BRIAN Laundrie's parents called 911 on Dog the Bounty Hunter after he knocked at their Florida home, it emerged on Monday.

Dog, real name Duane Chapman, said it was a "shame" Roberta and Chris Laundrie called for cops rather than open the door to him.

Gabby Petito supporters have slammed the family's silence, with a number of protesters arriving outside the home with a megaphone and posters on Monday.

Reality bounty hunter Dog has pledged to catch Gabby's missing fiancé Brian before the fugitive's birthday in November.


The reality TV star joined the search at the weekend as cops try to find the 23-year-old.

A dispatcher was heard saying Brian's mom Roberta "referenced a situation with the male."

Chapman told Fox News: "It’s a shame they wouldn’t speak with us.

"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."

North Port Police Public Information Officer Josh Taylor confirmed: "We've been called to the house numerous times for all sorts of issues: media, protesters, celebrity searchers.

"It's not something normal. If the family calls and is concerned, we will respond like we would for anyone."

Laundrie was reported missing on September 17 - days after allegedly telling his family that he was going for a hike in a nature reserve in Sarasota, Florida.

That came after he returned home to his parent's house without Gabby. The couple had been on a cross country road trip when she disappeared.


Gabby was reported missing by her family on September 11. Her body was found several days later in a Wyoming national park.

Laudrie has been named as a person of interest in her disappearance.

The FBI has also issued a warrant for his arrest; Laundrie is accused of swiping a Capital One debit card and running up a $1,000 balance from August 31 until September 1.

Detectives continue to search the Carlton Reserve but some investigators think Laundrie may be heading towards the Appalachian Trail.


Dog said a lot of the information he has received points to the hiking route.

He said: “Well, the leads yes have said that. The reason is that he spent a couple of months there in the past and he’s an outdoorsman. He’s got t-shirts on his social media with the mountains, he’s got pictures.

“He’s been there before. He’s very young. He’s not an experienced criminal.

“He’ll do what he should do. He can’t stay shop and shoplift, and stay in cheap motels or rob people like a lot of people that I chase.

“This kid is an outdoorsman so I think he went to, again, where he’s comfortable to the outdoors.”
