American TV personality Dog the Bounty Hunter, who had put together a team for his own search operation to locate Brian Laundrie for the past week, has flown back to Colorado to tend to his ankle injury and "handle some business."

In recent days, Dog, whose original name is Duane Lee Chapman, had been out and about helping Floridan authorities in their man-hunt on the FBI's only person of interest in the Gabby Petito homicide case, according to the Independent

Cops from the North Port Police Department have been scouring the swampy 25,000-acre Carlton Reserve for weeks in search of the wanted man as their phones ring in hot from tipsters also reporting Laundrie sightings along the Appalachian Trail as far north as the North Carolina-Tennessee border.

Over the weekend, authorities retrieved a corpse near a scenic North Carolina overlook but quickly clarified it is not the 23-year-old, WPDE noted.

“At this time there is no evidence to connect or any reason to believe it is related to the search for fugitive Brian Laundrie,” the FBI said in a statement on Sunday.

Along with the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the FBI also said the discovery of the remains is under investigation. 

At this stage, they have yet to identify the recovered corpse beneath the Yadkin Valley Overlook near the Blue Ridge Parkway on Saturday.

The feds have launched a man-hunt for Laundrie after he vanished from his parents’ home in North Port, Florida, last month. Brian remains on the lam following the disappearance and death of his 22-year-old fiancée, a Long Island native.

Police focused their search for Brian around the preserve near his North Port home after he returned alone on Sept. 1 in Petito's 2012 Ford Transit. He would lawyer up and refuse to speak to authorities when asked to help with probes as he was the last person to see her.

He and the victim had been enjoying their cross-country trip since June and had documented their adventures on social media before Gabby disappeared. Petito's body was found at a remote Wyoming campground on Sept. 19, more than a week after her reported disappearance.

While Laundrie has not been charged with Gabby's death, he is wanted on federal charges for fraud after using Petito’s bank card to withdraw cash in the course of her disappearance, according to the New York Post
