A rep for the famed bounty hunter confirmed Chapman, new wife Francie Frane and his family added the hefty sum to the $170,000 standing reward, saying they hope upping the price would help uncover new information that could lead to Laundrie's arrest and give Gabby Petito's family closure, per TMZ.

As OK! reported, Chapman joined the manhunt on Saturday, September 25, and showed up to Laundrie's family home after he was reported missing on Friday, September 17. Despite the 68-year-old's efforts to track the most wanted man in America down — after he was deemed a person of interest in his late fiancée's homicide — the 23-year-old's parents, Roberta and Chris, weren't willing to talk to the TV personality.

In fact, they were so upset with Chapman coming onto their North Port, Flor. property they called the cops on him.

Chapman has since addressed the incident, noting he just wanted to talk to Laundrie's dad and explain the "difference between involuntary manslaughter and murder one out of Wyoming."

While appearing on The Dr. Oz Show earlier this week, Chapman explained most parents of a missing child accused of a crime know where their kids are or helped them disappear.

Meanwhile, the reality star seems to be one step closer to finding the missing man, as he alerted cops earlier this week to a possible sighting near Fort De Soto Park in Florida. Chapman discovered what he believed was a makeshift campsite in the woods of Shell Island, which is about 75 miles from the Laundrie residence.

OK! reported Laundrie and his parents went on a camping trip in the area days before he vanished. Roberta and Chris told authorities Brian went hiking in Carlton Reserve — a 25,000-acre wildlife refuge in Florida — on Tuesday, September 14, days before they reported him missing.

Laundrie vanished weeks after he returned home alone from the couple's cross-country trip in Petito's van. He and his family quickly lawyered up and refused to speak to the cops about Petito's disappearance. The 22-year-old influencer's body was found Sunday, September 19, and her death was ruled a homicide two days later.
