Brian Laundrie updates – Dog the Bounty Hunter wants to talk to Gabby Petito suspect's dad, saying he could hold clue

DOG the Bounty Hunter says he wants to speak to missing Brian Laundrie's father – and insists that parents know "50 percent of the time" where their kids are.

Dog, real name Duane Chapman, told Dr Oz in an interview on Tuesday that typically, parents insist they don't know where their children are after being accused of a crime.

"And after, they say, 'Dog, I couldn't, I knew,'" Chapman said.

He also told Dr Oz that around "50 percent of the time" parents know where their children are.

Another "35 percent of the parents help," Dog said, adding he hopes the Laundrie family will fall into that number.

    LAUNDRIE ON APPALACHIAN TRAIL?

    In an interview with Fox News, Dog the Bounty Hunter also addressed the possibility that Brian might be somewhere on the Appalachian Trail.

    “This kid is an outdoorsman, so I think he went where he’s comfortable,” Dog concluded.

    CAUSE OF DEATH ‘WITHHELD’?

    Meanwhile, experts fear that Gabby’s cause of death may be “being withheld” as cops struggle to find clues from her body left in the wilderness for weeks.

    Gabby’s body has not yet been released as medical examiners try to establish her cause of death.

    Joseph Giacalone, a criminal justice professor at the City University of New York, thinks cops may be withholding a cause of death for a reason.

    He told Insider: “If she’s strangled, the evidence is going to be limited.”

    “In the respect that you’re not going to have blood everywhere and, you know, hair fibers or all that other stuff.”
