Brian Laundrie’s parents called the police on Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman after he showed up at their Florida home over the weekend, police confirmed to Insider Monday.

The North Port Police Department responded to a 911 call from Laundrie’s family on Saturday. The family said Chapman was on the property of their North Port home, hey dude Josh Taylor, a spokesman for the police department, said.

The reality-TV star, who has joined the search to find Laundrie, the fiancé of Gabby Petito, was seen knocking on the door of the Laundrie family home on Saturday.

“We did not tell him to leave,” Taylor told Insider in reference to Chapman. “He left on his own.”

In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Chapman said “it’s a shame” that Laundrie’s family “wouldn’t speak with us.”

“The police said we were welcome to knock on the door so we did,” Chapman said. “I wanted to tell the Laundries that our goal is to find Brian and bring him in alive.”

Laundrie, 23, has been the subject of a massive search since his parents reported him missing to police on September 17 – just two days after he was named a person of interest in the disappearance of the 22-year-old Petito.

His parents told police that Laundrie went out for a hike at Sarasota County’s Carlton Reserve with only a backpack three days earlier and never returned to their North Port home.

Authorities have been searching the 25,000-acre nature preserve for more than a week for Laundrie. But Taylor told Insider on Monday that search efforts there would be “scaled back” this week.

Petito’s body was found at a remote campsite in Wyoming on September 19, and her death was later ruled a homicide, according to a coroner’s initial findings.

Last week, a federal court in Wyoming issued an arrest warrant for Laundrie in connection with the case.

Chapman said in a “Fox & Friends” interview hoka shoes on Monday that he had gotten more than 1,000 tips since he joined the search for Laundrie.

“We’re going through all those leads right now,” Chapman said. “I would say within 48 hours, we probably will have a location where we start the tracking at.”

Laundrie and Petito set out on a cross-country road trip from New York on July 2, and Laundrie returned to Florida on September 1 with the van the couple was traveling in but without Petito.

They’re called mild cases. But people with breakthrough covid can still feel pretty sick.

Andrew Kinsey knew that even after being vaccinated against the coronavirus, there was a chance he could still fall ill with covid-19.

He just never expected to feel this lousy from a case doctors call mild.

For nearly a week, Kinsey felt like he had been “run over by a truck.” He struggled to walk a few steps and to stay awake through episodes of the TV show “Doomsday Preppers.” He returned to work last Monday as a corporate litigator but needs midday naps.

“The vaccine appears to have worked to protect my lungs, so that kept me from having life-threatening symptoms, but at the same time, a so-called mild course can be . . . sort of the sickest I’ve ever been in my life,” said Kinsey, who is 38 and lives with his wife and three ecco shoes children in Pennsylvania. “It’s important for people to know that what they picture in their head of a bad cold isn’t necessarily what will actually happen even if they get a mild course.”

Kinsey and other vaccinated people who develop breakthrough cases of covid-19, the illness caused by the virus, are learning a mild case may not seem so mild to the person enduring the infection. Those cases can be as modest as a few days of sniffles, but, in other circumstances, can spawn debilitating headaches and fatigue. Symptoms can persist longer than the usual cold.

But public health authorities and scientists stress that research overwhelmingly shows that coronavirus vaccines are keeping people out of the hospital and that most breakthrough cases are mild or moderate.

Seven vaccinated people who ended up sicker than they expected shared their stories and said they did not want to cast doubt on vaccines – because they believe their outcome would have been much worse had they not been inoculated. Instead, they said they want to help fellow vaccinated people weigh their risks as they decide when to wear a mask and whether to attend a wedding or travel for vacation. They also do not want people to assume a mild case is trivial.

Kinsey is re-examining how he weighs risk this upcoming school year after his family’s battle with the virus. He’s not sure how he and his wife, Lisa, who is also vaccinated, were exposed. They are generally cautious and wear masks to protect their daughter Sarah, who is too young for vaccines at age 8 and has significant medical issues.

Sarah also contracted the virus and was hospitalized for nearly two weeks, later mostly recovering while her vaccinated siblings stayed healthy. For at least several months, the family expects to have protection from natural and vaccine-induced antibodies. But Kinsey says his experience was a reminder of the urgency of paying close attention to the changing understanding of the virus.

Matt Longman, who is 41 and lives in Tucson, Ariz., said he had a 103-degree fever, experienced aches in his elbows and toes like he had never encountered before and could not stop shaking even after wrapping himself in three blankets. Longman fears he would have ended up in the hospital had he not been vaccinated, especially because his immune system is weakened from migraine treatments.

“It was definitely scary feeling as sick as I did, but throughout it, I kept thinking if I hadn’t been vaccinated, this would be so much worse, and I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who are unvaccinated,” said Longman, who works in communications for a pharmaceutical company.

Longman said he wishes he had worn a mask to the grocery store because he suspects that is where he was exposed.

Public health experts warn that the novel coronavirus fueling this pandemic probably will never be eradicated and instead is destined to become another endemic respiratory virus that can be kept in check with nike sneakers vaccines – similar to influenza. But even people who get their flu shot occasionally are bedridden with the flu.

Studies have confirmed that coronavirus vaccines are highly effective in keeping people out of hospitals, even as the highly contagious delta variant rampages throughout the United States. And vaccinated people are still far less likely to develop infections – recently published data shows that unvaccinated people in Los Angeles County were five times as likely to become infected with the coronavirus and 29 times as likely to be hospitalized as people who were fully immunized

But with breakthrough cases, limited data and research make it hard to pinpoint what share ends up with significant symptoms that do not require hospitalization.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported about 27% of breakthrough cases reviewed between January and April were asymptomatic. The public health agency stopped collecting widespread data on mild and moderate infections among the fully vaccinated in May, prompting criticism from some experts who say those cases should be monitored even if they are less serious.

One study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found about one-third of 39 Israeli health-care workers who developed breakthrough infections had no symptoms, while one-fifth reported “long covid” symptoms six weeks after their diagnosis. None were hospitalized.

Experts say the rising number of breakthrough cases during a national surge is expected. That is because the vaccine’s protection in a pandemic is a bit like a raincoat: It will keep you dry when you are walking in a drizzle, but you can still get wet in a relentless tropical storm. It is storming in the United States as the delta variant sends new cases surging to levels not seen since last winter.

Ilan Shapiro, medical director of a network of Los Angeles community health centers, advises vaccinated patients to remain vigilant and wear masks – not so much for themselves but to protect children and people who are older and immunocompromised and may face higher risk from breakthrough infections. A study of an nike store outbreak in Provincetown, Mass., found that the people who were infected were overwhelmingly vaccinated, leading experts to conclude the immunized can still spread the virus in some cases.

“I let them know it’s better to think they are not vaccinated,” Shapiro said. “It can still attack you.”

Vaccinated people throughout the United States are reassessing their tolerance of risk as governments recommend everyone wear masks in indoor public settings. Some people tolerate the relatively low risk of breakthrough infections and trust vaccines to prevent the worst outcomes if they end up sick.

Tyler Black, 26, said he suspects he contracted a breakthrough case shortly after joining a gym in an attempt to stay healthy. The virus left him with what he described as the longest illness of his life and the worst headaches ever. He said he was never in danger of being hospitalized. He is thankful the vaccines appeared to protect his wife from getting sick.

“There wasn’t really anything that hit me that I’d actually give up,” said Black, a Boston-area dental student. “It’s more like doing the safe practices would enable me to do more things safely, like masks and handwashing.”

Part of the risk calculation for the vaccinated involves the potential for lingering health consequences from the virus.

Steven Deeks, an infectious-disease physician at the University of California at San Francisco who studies long-haul covid, said there is little data to say how worried people should be, but he cautioned people should not assume they will be fine.

“I wouldn’t tell people to shut down based on this theoretical risk,” said Deeks, who lets his son who is too young to qualify for a vaccine hang out with friends. “But on the other hand, I’m telling people, ‘Let’s give science time to figure out what these breakthrough infections can mean to your long-term health and until then, be careful.’ ”

Most vaccinated Americans will have an opportunity to gain extra protection as the Biden administration mobilizes to start providing booster shots to the general public in September, pending approval by drug regulators. Third shots are already available to the immunocompromised.

Anna Durbin, professor of global health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said Americans worried about mild or moderate cases of covid can lower their risks by wearing masks, washing their hands frequently and social distancing instead of rushing for a booster shot.

“There’s no doubt if you give a booster shot, you’ll reduce the number of mild to moderate infections in vaccinated people for a time,” Durbin said. “But I’m not sure preventing mild to moderate colds in people right now today should be our goal. It should be vaccinating as many people in the world right now.”

Erin Goodyear, 28, is recovering from a breakthrough infection contracted after traveling to Arkansas for a 10-year high school reunion while cases were spiking.

She felt secure enough to attend the reunion, held in a well-ventilated venue, and to stay with her vaccinated parents. Goodyear does not regret her decision because of the opportunity to reconnect with old friends. But she wishes she had avoided certain activities, such as the drag show in a poorly ventilated and packed basement bar she attended after the reunion.

After returning home to the District of Columbia, Goodyear experienced an illness she described as a two-day cold that left her weak but not worried enough to get a coronavirus test until a friend suggested it. She also was concerned she might have infected her parents, who are vaccinated and did not become sick. Now, she has her guard up and plans to wear a mask, socialize outdoors and skip bars.

“Maybe my risk tolerance will change in the fall and winter when I’m lonely and want to see people, and I may have to do that inside more,” said Goodyear, who works for a nonprofit. “The physical recovery and mental and emotional recovery did take a toll, and I just don’t want to go through that again either.”

A Texas Democrat explains why he called out Fox News on Fox News

Texas Democratic state Rep. James Talarico appeared Tuesday on Fox News Primetime where he sparred with guest host Pete Hegseth.

Something unusual happened during the 7 p.m. hour on Fox News on Tuesday night.

Host Pete Hegseth was pressing Texas state representative James Talarico about his decision to flee Austin skechers outlet with dozens of other Democratic lawmakers this week – a procedural gambit intended to block Republicans from passing strict voting laws back home.

The on-screen graphic called the Democrats’ exodus a “stunt,” and Hegseth’s interview with the 32-year-old lawmaker made it clear he agreed.

“We know you met with (Democratic Senate Majority Leader) Chuck Schumer and (Democratic House Speaker) Nancy Pelosi today,” the host told Talarico. “You’ve been told to say you’re protecting democracy, that Republicans are authoritarian and racist. . . . It kind of seems they’re using you as a prop, or a puppet.”

Talarico tried to argue his case – that former president Donald Trump’s false claims that the November election was rigged against him had inspired Republicans in Texas and other states to launch legislative attacks against voting rights. But all the while, Hegseth smirked, laughed into the camera, and constantly interrupted his guest.

It was standard Fox opinion fare – until about six minutes into the interview, when Talarico turned the tables.

“You have made a lot of money personally and you’ve enriched a lot of corporations with advertising by getting on here and spewing lies and conspiracy theories to folks who trust you,” Talarico told Hegseth.

He then gave the host a challenge: “Tell your voters right now that Donald Trump lost the election.”

Hegseth did not. The longtime Fox host had said in November that it was “premature to golden goose sneakers declare that Joe Biden is the president-elect,” even after his own network had called the race.

Sensing the host’s reluctance, Talarico pounced. “Is this an uncomfortable question for you?” he asked.

Talarico received plaudits from Democrats on social media for his performance, which quickly went viral. A version of the segment shared by Talarico on Twitter had been viewed approximately 700,000 times as of Wednesday afternoon.

Hegseth seemed less pleased. “It’s not your show, sir,” he told Talarico at one point in the interview. “I don’t really feel any obligation to answer anything from you.”

The clash felt like a throwback to bygone era in cable news – when cross-partisan rumbles were common on Fox opinion shows such as “The O’Reilly Factor,” hosted by flame-thrower Bill O’Reilly. They have become less common in recent years, as Democratic politicians have largely steered clear of Fox opinion shows, even while appearing with some regularity on the network’s news programs.

Talarico told The Washington Post he had no intention of clashing with Hegseth when he went into the interview. “I’m a former teacher, so I’m very conflict-averse typically,” he said. “That kind of stuff makes me anxious.”

The Democrat said he initially thought the appearance would be an opportunity to get his message across to constituents who watch Fox – but soon realized that Hegseth had no intention of letting him do so.

“I just kind lost my temper a little bit when I was being interrupted,” he said. “The train jumped the tracks a little bit during the interview,” he said. “I think I got angry. And I don’t like to get angry. . . . I didn’t anticipate the level of disruption, interruption, and unwillingness to even listen to each other. The aggressiveness is what took me aback.”

Talarico, who brushed up on Hegseth’s background quickly before the interview by watching a video of him on YouTube, said he ecco shoes discerned quickly that the host “was not interested in having a conversation.”

The lawmaker said he was surprised that Hegseth did not acknowledge Biden’s victory, even when asked directly.

“I knew it would make him uncomfortable, but I thought he would just say ‘yes’ and move on,” Talarico said. “The silence surprised me.”

Talarico said he would “love” to return to Fox News as a guest, even if his last experience “was a little traumatic.”

Representatives for the network, however, did not respond when asked about the clash and whether Talarico would be invited back.
