Investigators working with Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman are honing in on portions of the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina as they continue their search for Brian Laundrie, who is wanted on bank fraud charges after his fiancée, Gabby Petito, was found dead in Wyoming.
As the manhunt for Laundrie forges on, people have claimed to have seen the 23-year-old in Watauga County, North Carolina, according to multiple reports.
