FIRST ON FOX: Dog, the Bounty Hunter, arrived at Brian Laundries' home Saturday. He knocked on the front door but was met with silence. However, he has already detected a scent.

Many outside experts don't believe that he could survive in the swampy reserve located near Laundries.
Chapman stated that it would be hard enough to survive in the swamp, and thermal vision devices used for law enforcement make it even more difficult to escape capture.
Chapman, who also has an anonymous tip line (833 TELL-DOG), stated that he receives calls about every two to three minutes. Francie Chapman, his wife, was standing a few feet away, taking a steady stream call.

Many of the information he has received points to the Appalachian Trail where Laundrie used to camp. Laundrie could be on the trail, even if he is not in the Carlton Reserve as some suspect.
Chapman stated, "If there's any area out there that looks the most hottest, it could be that area."
Chapman stated that if Laundrie left town, investigators will need to find out where he went, and then use dogs, infrared, and other technology to search for him.
"I believe he is young enough and not an experienced criminal. But what is his greatest experience?" Outdoorsman. Chapman stated that this is what he excels at. He can't shoplift, live on the streets, or stay in cheap hotels. He's probably a six on a 1-to-10 scale, compared to some of the outdoormen and other guys I have captured."
Chapman's intuition is that Laundrie is on Chapman's trail.
Chapman said, "What's in his blood is within them hills."
Chapman is not unfamiliar with the Appalachian Trail. In 2015, Chapman participated in a huge manhunt in upstate New York for two escaped murderers.
If Laundrie is indeed found in the swamp, he will have to be moving at night when authorities stop their search.
Chapman is in agreement with other experts who say that Laundries are not likely to be found in Mexico.
He said, "A White boy who doesn't know Spanish will be taken by the cartels for the reward." "So he's not down there."
According to Chapman, he is most likely in the States and possibly somewhere on the East Coast.
"Somebody knows where he is, where they dropped him off, or where they dropped him off." Chapman stated. "That person is going to tell us because, again. We're not police." This is anonymous."
