On Monday, Dog claimed Brian was caught on camera entering Fort De Soto Campground in Florida with his family at the beginning of September, days before Gabby Petito's parents reported her missing.

He had many convinced that Brian could still be hiding in the campground; however, it appears Dog's team is expanding their search to NC.

According to a Facebook group called Appalachian Classifieds, people are "reporting seeing Brian Laundrie in Boone, NC."

While the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office told Fox they are "looking into these claims, but nothing has been verified," Dog's daughter says his team is on the case too.

Lyssa Chapman tweeted moments ago "Dad has a team on scene," revealing, "He is on the hunt."

This news comes after Lyssa told everyone that they were "looking for experienced HIKING/SURVIVALIST near the Appalachian Hiking trail in North Carolina." Adding that "these types rarely have social media," she asked, "So do you have a family member or friend who fits in this description?"

She later made the suggestion, "If you have hunters in your family, near the AT in NC. Tell them to Check your game cameras!"

Brian once lived on the Appalachian Trail for three months all by himself, making this possibility terrifying.

According to Gabby's best friend, Rose Davis, he's "well equipped" to survive in the wilderness because he's done it before.

"He and Gabby both told me stories about it," she said in an interview last week. "And you could see the enthusiasm in his voice when he would talk about his adventures by himself like that trip into the Appalachians."

Brian's parents announced he was missing on September 17 after claiming he went on a solo hike in the Carlton Reserve. A manhunt has been underway ever since.

The FBI issued an arrest warrant for Brian but it's not for Gabby's murder. They want to nab him for fraud after discovering he used an "unauthorized Capital One Bank card between August 30 and September 1, pulling out more than $1,000."

Gabby's body was discovered in Wyoming on September 19, 8 days after her parents reported her missing and 18 days after Brian returned home from their cross-country trip without her.
