Dog the Bounty Hunter is now working to confirm a tip regarding the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie.
After Dennis Davis says he has "no doubt" he encountered Laundrie near the Appalachian Trail in a section that straddles the border of North Carolina and Tennessee in a fairly remote area.
Dog's daughter Lyssa Chapman told the New York Post that she had spoken to Davis, who claims to have spoken to Laundrie on a deserted road Saturday morning.
"I do believe Dennis. I am convinced he's convinced," she said.
"We're doing everything we can to verify Dennis' tip but there isn't much to go off other than the location. But we're working that tip for sure."
Lyssa added that she has been combing through some 3,000 tips that have been sent to Dog's tip hotline over the past week. Dog has apparently suspected that Laundrie was hiding on the Appalachian Trail when he first joined the hunt.
"I do think wherever he is, he is stashed among a community of people who don't read the news or could be traveling solo or with a group that's helping him," Lyssa added.
Dog continues to search on the west coast of Florida in person until there's concrete evidence that he is somewhere else. The Laundrie family was confirmed to be at a campground in Fort De Soto Park early in September, one of, if not the, last confirmed reports of Brian's whereabouts.
