Chapman said he would join the search for Laundrie Saturday. He has already received over 1,000 anonymous tips and calls, and it seems like one might actually have legs.
According to a new tip, Laundrie and his parents visited Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas County Florida twice at the start of September.
It is approximately 75 miles from Laundries in North Port, Florida.
It was confirmed that lead had been tested. According to Fox News, the parents were there twice, on September 1st and 3rd, respectively, and September 6th and 8. They had registered to stay in the park, and they were caught on camera. They did get in. They came here. According to some reports, two people left on August 8th and three others arrived on June 6th. I believe Brian Laundrie has been there for certain.

Fox 13 was informed by Pinellas County officials that there have not been any confirmed sightings at the campsite of Brian Laundrie.
Fort de Soto Park covers 1,138 acres and consists of five interconnected islands. The main island is Mullet Key.
According to the county's website, it boasts more than seven miles of waterfront and almost three miles of white sandy beaches. It also has an 800-foot-long boat launch facility with eleven floating docks.
According to The Bounty Hunter, it is possible that Laundrie could be found on any of the islands that are accessible.
Chapman claims that Brian Laundrie was there for certain, and not in the swamp.
The swamp is the Carlton Reserve. This place of interest was where authorities were actively searching for Laundrie during his disappearance.
Laundrie is wanted in the case against Gabby Petito's ex-girlfriend. She disappeared after they went on cross-country hiking and camping trips. He was later found dead in Wyoming.

According to Laundrie's fugitive seeker, he went to the outdoors, no matter where he might be.
