Dog is seen in the remote location with water gleaming behind him. Wearing his signature black vest without a shirt, the TV personality explained what their search plan is.

"We are out here at the island. This could be a perfect spot for him to hide," he said. "Not too many people out here but there's a lot of environmental things we're going to fight."

Dog joined the search for Brian over the weekend but the Laundries did not welcome him with open arms. Brian's mom, Roberta, called 911 on the Bounty Hunter when he knocked on her door offering his services.

His goal is to find Brian alive.

Brian has been missing since he allegedly went on a solo hike in the Carlton Reserve on September 14, the same day he was reportedly spotted buying a burner phone with an older woman.

His parents did not reveal his disappearance until 3 days later.

His daughter revealed Dog switched gears on the search, launching a team to hunt for Brian on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina.
