DOG the Bounty Hunter’s daughter claims she's been told not to share "active information" – days after teasing her followers that “big news” on the hunt for Brian Laundrie could be revealed.
Lyssa Chapman, daughter of reality TV star Duane Chapman, joined the search earlier this month as she tries to help cops find Gabby Petito’s missing fiancé.
She tweeted Sunday: “Hi guys, I was locked out of Twitter due to account security.
“Just got back in. A lot of people asking about my last tweet with big news.
“I’ve been asked to not share active information due to the large amount of media surrounding the case.”
She uploaded an image of a black background with the caption: “I know I disappear a lot, I don’t text back consistently and I’m distant. The truth is, I’m a superhero."
It’s not known who told Chapman to stop publicizing information.
Dog's daughter also confirmed that the bounty hunter has to return to Colorado.
She said: “Dad is headed back to Colorado temporarily to handle some business. (Remember, he was in Florida on his honeymoon)," she wrote.
"We are still actively searching for #BrianLaundrie, leaving a team in place in Florida. As always, whatever I can share with you, I will."

Dog’s team told WFLA that the bounty hunter had injured his ankle during the search and is planning to meet with his doctor.
He will continue to process leads in Colorado while he’s there and is raising funds to continue the "expensive" search.
Chapman sent internet sleuths wild last week after she tweeted that “big news” could be announced. The post has since been deleted.
It read: "I’m hoping tomorrow I’ll be able to share some BIG news with you guys. Having to stay tight-lipped for now… trust the process.”
She ended the post with a crossed fingers emoji.
'TRUST THE PROCESS'
Dog has been searching the Fort de Soto campground and its nearby islands for weeks after receiving a tip-off that the Laundries camped there on September 6.
He told The Sun that his team has fielded more than 3,000 calls.
Admittedly, Dog said the majority of the calls are fans saying “Hello, We love the Dog!” but the rest are “pretty good.”
He said: “In order to get someone, it doesn't matter how [or] what degree.”
Laundrie was reported missing by his parents on September 17 – days after cutting short his and Gabby’s cross-country road trip.
He returned to Florida alone on September 1 without the 22-year-old vlogger.
Gabby was reported missing on the weekend of September 11 and her remains were found in a Wyoming national park just a week later.
A preliminary autopsy ruled the manner of her death to be a homicide but an official cause has not been disclosed.
The search to find Laundrie has now entered its fourth week.
He allegedly told his parents that he was going for a hike in the snake-infested Carlton Nature reserve.
The 25,000-acre park is also home to hogs, bears, panthers, and alligators.
The fugitive was branded a "mediocre survivalist" by his sister Cassie Laundrie.
Robert Urban, the founder of the Urban Survival Academy, thinks it’s “highly unlikely” that someone who’s not professionally trained in survival tactics would be able to survive for this length of time in the Carlton Reserve.
He told CNN: “Florida’s climate is very, very difficult. I’m an expert with plenty of experience and it would be everything that I could do to survive for (more) than three weeks.
“Someone with no experience, you cannot be lucky and survive in that sort of climate.”
Meanwhile, Jason Marsteiner, founder of The Survival University, said: “Twenty-five days in that area is extremely tough. I wouldn’t want to do it and I’ve got jungle training.”
He warned that Laundrie will not be sleeping well and said it could cause him to make bad choices.
But, former FBI agent Jennifer Coffindaffer thinks the fugitive will be found alive but warned that it’s not going to be soon.
She told NewsNationNow: “I believe he’s going to be able to hide in his surroundings. I think he’s a learned outdoorsman and survivalist and because of that I think he will be able to stay out of law enforcement’s grasp for a while.”
