Brian Laundrie, 23, has been missing since September 15 after he reportedly told his parents he was going hiking in the nearby Carlton Reserve, five miles from their home. His parents did not reveal to the police until three days later that he had not returned.

He had embarked on a cross-country road trip with his fiancée, Gabby Petito, 22, who was last seen alive on Aug. 25. Laundrie returned to Florida on September 1, and Petito was reported missing by her parents 11 days later.

After an extensive search at the Spread Creek campground in Grand Teton National Park, Petito’s remains were discovered on Sept. 19. A coroner ruled that she died as a result of a murder, but her method of death has not yet been revealed.

The FBI and local police are still looking for him on an alligator reservation five miles from his home.

On Saturday, Chapman revealed to DailyMail.com that he has also set up a dedicated phone line — 833-TELL-DOG — so the public can call his team with tips and directions.

Chapman is “volunteering” for his services because, according to his representative, he was moved to help Gabby’s family. He has sworn to cooperate with law enforcement and all clues and tips he receives from the public will be confidential

“Dog and Francie have suffered extreme loss themselves,” said Chapman’s representative.

“Their hearts go out to Gabby’s family and want to help her bring justice for her death.”

After knocking again, he turned and strode back to his vehicle, driven by newest wife Francie Frane, 52, who said he would reveal more soon before they drove off.

The surreal apparition added to the media frenzy outside Laundrie’s household, which has been surrounded by FBI agents, police and a dozen TV crews since Brian, 23, came home from a road trip with his country wife without his murdered fiancée Gabby Petito, only to going to miss themselves.

Police searched the crocodile-infested wetland in the nearby 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve at a cost of about $1.2 million for the past week, without finding any trace of him.
