One of Dog The Bounty Hunter's daughters is coming after him, claiming his search for Brian Laundrie is nothing more than a "publicity stunt."
Cecily Chapman spoke out about her famous father's efforts to find the missing fugitive, telling The Sun that Dog "needs to back off."
The professional fugitive hunter has been on the case for more than a week after creating his own search team. He's followed up with leads, tips, and given the public updates on everything he finds.
According to Dog, he's even turned in evidence to the FBI.
“It's just a publicity stunt. That's really what it is. He needs to back off and let the FBI handle it," Cecily tells the outlet.
Last week, Dog revealed he had boat crews, canines, and a ground crew scouring the Carlton Reserve, where Brian's parents claimed he told them he was going on a solo hike on September 14 and never returned.
His daughter is questioning how he's been able to afford the continued search. “Realistically, how is he doing this, what the hell is he doing, and who is funding this nonsense!?” Cecily asks.
Cecily also questions whether Dog is using his search for Brian as bait for a new reality show — something he has denied.
“A real network would be aware of the situation and I'm pretty sure everyone knows that this is a f---ing publicity stunt," she says.
His daughter didn't hold back, poking fun at her father for sharing that he found an empty Monster can at a makeshift campsite in the area that he believes could have been where Brian was staying.
"What, you found a Monster Energy can? What does that do for anyone?" Cecily asks. She also says her father's "water stuff" looks "totally staged," referring to a video showing Dog in waist-height water during the search.
It's worth noting that Cecily has beef with Dog after she accused him of not inviting her when he married Francie Frane. His daughter makes one thing clear — she has zero confidence that her father will find Brian.
"To be completely honest with you, the FBI is never going to let Dog the Bounty Hunter catch Brian anyway- the FBI is way too prideful for that," she says.
The FBI and Dog have been on a manhunt for Brian, with the most recent possible sighting coming over the weekend.
According to hiker Dennis Davis, he spoke to Brian near the Appalachian Trail. He says Brian was driving a white truck and asked for directions to California.
