Dog the Bounty Hunter travels back to Colorado, his daughter Lyssa confirmed on October 11th. The celebrity, whose real name is Duane Lee Chapman, was reportedly injured while hunting Brian Laundrie in Florida. The injury was first reported by a local reporter before being confirmed by Lyssa. Details are rare, but we know it happened when he was there in Florida.
Chapman made headlines in late September when he joined the hunt for Laundrie and has made some breakthroughs since then. On September 30th, he found a fresh Monster Energy Ultra Gold can near Fort De Soto Park, where Laundrie was camping with his parents. In fact, his looks got so much attention that Donald Trump Jr. tweeted that he trusted Dog more than the FBI to find Laundrie.

What if Brian Laundrie is never found? An uncomfortable truth is beginning to surface
Unfortunately, however, it wasn’t smooth for Chapman. As we reported, Chapman was served with a $ 1.3 million lawsuit on October 7th during his search by Michael Donovan, the CEO and President of Unleashed Entertainment. Then on October 10th, he injured himself and had to temporarily stop his efforts. That doesn’t mean the hunt for Laundrie is over, however, as Lyssa confirmed.
Is dog okay?
It’s unclear what exactly happened to Chapman, but WFLA reporter Josh Benson tweeted, “I just got an update from the Dog the Bounty Hunter team. They say he is returning to Colorado soon to meet with his doctor after injuring his ankle while searching to raise money to continue what he calls an ‘expensive search.’ “Further details were not available available, so it is unclear what the level of Chapman’s injury is.
DOG. Just received an update from the Dog the Bounty Hunter team. They say he is returning to Colorado soon to meet with his doctor after injuring his ankle while searching. He’s also raising funds to continue what he calls an “expensive search”. (1/2) #BrianLaundrie @DogBountyHunter

However, it seems significant enough for Chapman to personally break off his efforts and return to Colorado. That was confirmed by Lyssa, who tweeted, “Dad is temporarily back in Colorado to do some business. Whatever I can share with you, I’ll do as always. “
Dad is going back to Colorado temporarily to do some business. (Remember, he was in Florida on his honeymoon) We’re still actively looking for #BrianLaundrie, leaving a team behind in Florida. Whatever I can share with you, I will as always ️

Chapman himself did not address the injury and due to the lack of information we have no idea how long he will be out and if he will ever return to the ground in Florida. Even if he doesn’t, the celebrity bounty hunter has made it clear that he doesn’t want to give up on the search for Laundrie.
The hunt continues
As both Benson and Lyssa have confirmed, Chapman’s departure is far from the end of the hunt for Laundrie. Benson followed up his tweet with another who said, “The team says that he has put together a talented network of local team members that he calls the ‘Florida team,’ who will continue the search while he’s away. He says he will continue to process leads in Colorado while he’s there. “The North Port FBI and Police are also searching extensively for Laundrie, with drones, K-9 teams and hundreds of volunteers.
But almost a month after he disappeared from his home, there appears to be no trace of Laundrie, much to the agony of Gabby Petito’s parents. During the past week, Brian’s father joined the search in Carlton Reserve, but that move did not yield any clues either. Chapman and his team searched the grounds around the Fort de Soto campsite after the Laundrie family confirmed they camped there shortly after Brian returned.
We will let you know when Chapman or his team announce any health updates and, as always, will keep you informed of any important developments arising from the case.
