$10,000 reward offered for missing Colorado City girl, 13
Staff reports
Abilene Reporter-News
Posted January 2, 2011 at 10:01 p.m.

An estimated 750 people attended a prayer vigil for missing teenager Hailey Dunn on Sunday night at Colorado Middle School in Colorado City.

Hailey, 13, was last seen walking from her home to a friend’s house about 1 p.m. last Monday, according to police. She had intended to spend the night with her friend, Interim Police Chief John Bivins told Colorado City radio station KVMC/KAUM.

A reward for information leading to the teenager’s return started at $1,000 from the Colorado City Police Department, climbed to $4,500 and now stands at $10,000, according to Jim Baum, owner of KVMC/KAUM.

Because police do not believe Hailey has met with foul play, a statewide Amber Alert has not been issued.

According to an article posted Friday on the Colorado City Record website, Bivins said his department considers Hailey a runaway.

“That’s what the evidence shows at the time,” Bivins said.

But the more days Dunn stays missing, the concern continues to grow.

“To me, I think it’d be more than just considered runaway,” Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs told the Reporter-News on Sunday night. His agency has interviewed several of Hailey’s classmates to help Colorado City police. Toombs said Texas Rangers also have assisted in the case.

While Toombs said his agency was only assisting Colorado City, Hailey’s disappearance remains a mystery, he said.

“It’s really unknown,” Toombs said. He said he wasn’t aware that anything has been ruled out, calling some sort of abduction or coercion “still a possibility.”

“But, right now, we have not been able to confirm or deny that, of how she disappeared from town,” Toombs said.

However, the Mitchell County community, Baum said, is gravely concerned for the teen’s safety.

“The people who knew her and her character do not believe she’d just take off and run away,” he said. “It doesn’t fit.

“They feel like there is foul play.”

Baum said Hailey’s mother became alarmed about her daughter’s whereabouts when she did not return home Tuesday.

“It just wasn’t like her” to vanish, Baum said. “She is real popular with her teachers and with those she goes to school with.”

Baum said volunteers took part in a door-to-door search for Hailey.

He said there were about 800 candles ready for the Sunday night prayer vigil, at which several ministers spoke and asked those attending to pray for Hailey, her family and “those she might be with.”

Hailey is 5-foot-1 and 120 pounds.

Her eyes are hazel and her hair is described as brown with blondish streaks.

Anyone with information may call Colorado City police at 325-728-5294.

Missing Child Hailey Dunn age 13 Colorado City, Texas

By cabarrusdotcom

Hailey Darlene Dunn's parents say she disappeared on December 27th and had plans to go to a friend's house, but never made it. According to a flyer sent to us by a Mitchell County radio station, an anonymous reward that began as $1,000 has now grown to $10,000 and is being offered for Hailey's safe return or information. Police still have not issued an Amber Alert because they say there was no evidence that she was abducted. http://www.ktxs.com/news/26345660/detail.html

An anonymous reward that began as $1,000 has now grown to $10,000. Isn't that a bit bizare? This is a small town of 4200 residents, seven sworn police officers and six civilian positions and a 1300-bed medium security prison. Thats a jail that equals 1/3 of the town population. Take all that in then go to their website and try to figure out where all the money is comming from to support this little town? http://tx-coloradocity.civiccities.com/index.aspx?NID=27

There is also no evidance that she wasn't abducted, in fact at this point there is no evidance of anything. However, this child was last seen 13 blocks from her home (in the business district) along a major highway. She was to spend the night with a friend, but never showed up. She lives less than four blocks from the Colorado City Police Station. There is NO information on their website about Hailey or even how to go about reporting a missing child. Aside from some small articles in local papers the most news coverage has been via websites.

Help bring this child home. Dunn is a white female, 5'1' with hazel eyes and brown hair and pierced ears. She was last seen wearing navy blue sweat pants, a short sleeve light colored T-shirt and pink and white tennis shoes.

Mom by phone on NG show..Mom's boyfriend was the last person to have seen Hailey..hmmmmm....
he told mom that Hailey told him to tell her mother that she was going to her dad's house first and then spending the night at a girl friend's house...has not been seen since..never went to dad's house and didn't go to girlfriends house....
I can't help but wonder about the boyfriend... the mom didn't check on the girl until Tuesday...this little girl is only 13..shouldn't she have been checked on sooner....

I guess it depends on how reliable she was and how well Mom believed the boyfriend.
 I can't believe the police, without any proof, decided she was a runaway. At 13 she should have at least have been considered endangered.

WTH is wrong with parents these days.  My 14yo son would not be allowed anywhere without me or his Dad taking him to or picking him up from anywhere unless a trusted Gparent!  I don't even allow my son's friends parents to pick him up.  I had him and WE are devoted to him!  Sooooom, another boyfriend is the reliable source as to where this child went!  I'm thinking maybe LE should have jumped on him ASAP!  Wonder how long ago Mommy moved Mr. Wonderful in their home?

Texas Rangers Get Involved In Hunt For Missing Colorado City Teen
By Jacqueline Hince, KTXS News

POSTED: 8:00 pm CST January 3, 2011

UPDATED: 8:33 pm CST January 3, 2011


   
COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Texas Rangers and national media are now involved in the hunt for a Colorado City teen, who's been missing since December 27th.

Monday, Rangers met with Colorado City Police and the Mitchell County Sheriff for hours.

Though they're pretty tight lipped about the investigation they did issue a generic statement that they are investigating Hailey Darlene Dunn's disappearance as a missing person.

She was last seen December 27th, after telling her mother's boyfriend she planned to spend the night at a friends.

KTXS talked to that friend who said she had no idea Hailey was coming over. ::MonkeyNoNo::

Her parents say they're now beginning to fear the worst.

"There's a chance somebody abducted her," Hailey's mother Billie Jean Dunn told us, "that's in the back of my mind because of the fact that she didn't take anything and because this is so out of her character. I'm pretty terrified of that."

Colorado Police Chief read aloud this statement, "Officers are working this as a missing persons investigation, and pursuing leads to find Hailey...we will not rest until Hailey is found. If anyone has any information on her whereabouts, they are to contact the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.

There is a $10,000 reward being offered for Hailey's safe return.

Hailey's story has been picked up by CNN's Nancy Grace. Her mother also told KTXS she has talked with Headline News.

My red flags went up with the information about the live-in boyfriend too. Also, the fact the mom knew Hailey hadn't checked in that night and did not begin to worry until the next day made me have cold chills. I cannot imagine how that could be.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

A neighbor saw Hailey talking on the phone around noon in the yard.  Phone records will provide info to who she was talking to.  Hailey supposedly told the boy friend to tell her mother she was spending the night with a friend.  She also said she was going to her father's house first and then never made it.  I thought he lived across the street.  The boyfriend has alot of explaining to do because it doesn't look good for him. Red flag, but JMOO.

Colorado City Ups Reward To $25,000 For Return Of Hailey Dunn

By George Levesque, KTXS News Director
POSTED: 3:19 pm CST January 4, 2011

UPDATED: 3:59 pm CST January 4, 2011
COLORADO CITY, Texas --

Officials with the city of Colorado City tell KTXS News that the reward has been upped from $10,000 to $25,000 for the return of missing teen Hailey Dunn.

The city manager of Colorado City also told our crew on the scene that the city has three times asked that an Amber Alert to be issued, but the request has been denied three times.

Dunn was last seen Dec. 27. The Colorado Middle School student told her mother's boyfriend she was spending the night at a friend's house. However, she did not spend the night there, and she hasn't been seen since.

If anyone has any information on her whereabouts, they are to contact the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.

KTXS has a crew on the scene and will bring you live updates via satellite tonight on KTXS News at Five and Six.

agreed...weird acting..but that is the bio dad from what NG said..and my opinion is that he is verrry angry..possibly at mom or the boyfriend..jmo...

last night mom first said that boyfriend had been at work, now she says that she never said that but she did..I heard it..pretty sure..or did she say that he got home around 3? anyways..don't believe it..the boyfriend had all day to do something with this child...Mom is very naive and not very bright seems to me...boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend...will eat my words if I am wrong..hope that she did just take off with friends but I don't think so...

::rhino::

Makes you wonder if he did go to work, got fired and took his anger out on the child......just a theory but way too many huge inconstiencies, I can see forgetting small details but these are HUGE IMO. I feel the same way as kids do get snatched but even with the mom being naive, she should still be showing far more emotion, and yeah the BF looks really hinky. When in the world are parents going to out their children FIRST, a PRIORITY and not their damn love life, grrrrrr ::MonkeyMad::

the mother said that her boyfriend had been at work, got home around 3 and saw Hailey then..today she said that she had not said that..that boyfriend had been at his mothers all day...then she said that he had gone to work but got into an argument and left and went to his mothers for the day...
Mom didn't have anything to do with her daughter going missing in my opinion, but I think that bio dad may suspect boyfriend and that is why he looked so angry...I think boyfriend has some explaining..jmo

Last nights NG transcripts regarding Hailey
<snipped by me>

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Thirteen-year-old Hailey Dunn is missing.

BILLIE DUNN, MOM OF MISSING TEEN CHEERLEADER, HAILEY DUNN: I have to have her back.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Police desperately trying to find the 8th grader after she leaves her home to walk over to a friend`s house where she was supposed to have a sleepover, but Hailey never arrives.

DUNN: We love her. We all need her back.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Friends and family grow increasingly concerned. And are asking anyone to be on the lookout to bring their little girl home.

DUNN: Somebody took her. She`s mine and Clint`s daughter. God gave her to us. We want her back. Somebody took her. She`s mine and Clint`s daughter. God gave her to us and we want her back.

I want her to know that I have to have her back. Her dad has to have her back. We`re torn up.

(END OF VIDEO CLIP)

GRACE: A 13-year-old cheerleader leaves in broad daylight from her own home to walk down the street to a little friend`s sleepover. Reminds me a lot of the Carlie Brucia case out of Florida. She`s never seen again.

Take a look at 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. Absolutely precious. Where is Hailey?

Out to Michael Board, WOAI Newsradio. Michael, what you can tell us?

MICHAEL BOARD, REPORTER, WOAI NEWSRADIO: She was last seen a week ago, Nancy. It`s been a week since anybody has seen this beautiful little 13-year-old girl. About 3:00 last Monday, it`s the last time anybody ever saw her alive.

There`s no sign of what happened to her, no sign that she was going anywhere. She didn`t take anything with her when she left her house. No sign of what happened to this girl.

GRACE: Joining me right now is Hailey`s mother. This is Billie Dunn joining us from Dunn, Texas.

Miss Dunn, thank you for being with us.

DUNN: Thank you for having me on the show.

GRACE: Number one --

DUNN: And I really appreciate your media attention.

GRACE: Yes, ma`am. Number one, we are praying.

DUNN: Thank you so much.

GRACE
: And when we look at the photo, the tip line is 325-728-5294. There`s a $10,000 reward. Help us find Hailey.

Miss Dunn, how far did she have to go to get to the little sleepover?

DUNN: Four to five blocks. It wasn`t rare for Hailey to walk a short distance during daylight. She wasn`t allowed out after dark especially to walk, but she only had four to five blocks to go.

GRACE: Tell me what happened the day she went missing, Miss Dunn.

DUNN: She went missing on Monday while I was at work. My boyfriend - - he came home from work about 3:00 -- or he got to my house about 3:00. And he`s seen Hailey. Hailey was there. She told him, I`m running across the street to my dad`s house for a few minutes but I`m going Mary Beth`s, and I`m staying the night there. Let my mom know.

So that evening when he picked me up from work, we got home, we were getting ready for bed. I didn`t get worried when I hadn`t heard from Hailey. I thought she was at Mary Beth`s. I was kind of upset that she didn`t call and confirm it with me, but not worried at that point.

Tuesday, I was at work again, I left my cell phone at home for my kids to use when I`m working. So Tuesday, I called my son. I said tell Hailey text the little girl, her friend, tell Hailey she needs to go ahead and get home. This was around lunch. My son called me back within a few minutes and she said, mom, she said Hailey never made it over there. She never spent the night.

So at that point I called Hailey`s dad and found out she didn`t over there and she didn`t stay the night with him. I left from work and went to the police station in Colorado City and reported her missing.

GRACE: Everyone, you are seeing pictures of a 13-year-old little cheerleader who by all accounts leaves home to go four to six blocks to a sleepover with a friend. She never makes it.

Now this would have been, Miss Dunn, the Tuesday following Christmas on Saturday?

DUNN: Right. She was last seen the 27th.

GRACE: And your boyfriend says what time was it she left the home?

DUNN: Right around 3:15.

GRACE: Did she have a cell phone?

DUNN: No, she didn`t have her own cell phone.

GRACE: Does she go online?

DUNN: Yes, she has a Facebook.

GRACE
: Have the police looked at her Facebook account?

DUNN: They have. I know investigators are still doing a lot. It doesn`t look like -- they`re not sure if Hailey`s logged in any. We`re going to talk with investigators again tonight. They finally got some Texas rangers involved just barely yesterday, six days later. So we do finally have the Texas rangers help. And that makes me feel a lot better.

GRACE
: Thank god for that.

DUNN
: Right.

GRACE: So this is the Tuesday afternoon after Christmas. Let me ask you this. Did anyone see her other than your boyfriend that day?

DUNN: There were some people came forward, a neighbor saw her around lunchtime on Tuesday out in my backyard talking on the cell phone.

GRACE: Talking on what cell phone?

DUNN: I mean Monday, I`m sorry.

GRACE: Talking on what cell phone?

DUNN: On my cell phone.

GRACE: OK --

(CROSSTALK)

GRACE: Well, that was Monday. Didn`t she go missing on Tuesday?

DUNN: No, I reported her missing Tuesday. That`s when I realized she didn`t make it to the friend`s house.

GRACE: Now I thought you were at work. Why was your cell phone at home?

DUNN: Because I left it there for my children.

GRACE: OK. So she goes missing Monday. You report it Tuesday after Christmas.

DUNN: Right.

GRACE: OK. So I know she`s alive at lunchtime. I know she`s fine, she`s at home. The boyfriend comes home at what time, did you say, around 3:00?

DUNN: Yes, ma`am.

GRACE: So 3:00. Between 12:00 and 3:00, did anybody see her beside the boyfriend?

DUNN: Just my next-door neighbor.

GRACE: OK. And that was at noon.

DUNN: Yes.

GRACE: Did anyone see her out walking at all? Can we confirm that she was out walking to the friend`s house?

DUNN: No.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)


UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Hailey`s supposed to walk over a friend`s house but never arrives. She`s never been seen since.

DUNN: Several leads and they say they`re checking into all of them. But they keep hitting dead ends.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER
: Hailey, 5`1", 120 pounds with pierced ears. Last seen wearing navy blue sweat pants, a light colored short sleeve t- shirt and pink and white shoes.

GRACE: We are taking your calls. Out to Susan in Kentucky. Hi, Susan.

SUSAN, CALLER FROM KENTUCKY: Hi, Nancy. How are you tonight?

GRACE: I`m good, dear.

SUSAN: Great. My heart goes out to the Cornwell family and also to Hailey`s family. My question is Hailey`s case, is -- have the police already talked to other students?

GRACE: Good question. What about it, Billie Dunn?

SUSAN: You know, maybe someone has --

DUNN: We have, and since the Texas rangers came in today, they`re starting re-questioning. They`re starting from the top.

GRACE: Let`s go to Marc Klaas, president and founder of KlaasKids Foundation.

What do we do, Marc?

KLAAS: Well, first of all, the local police chief suggested that the evidence indicates that she ran away. As far as I can tell, there`s absolutely no evidence. So I really don`t know how he can say that.

That is an `80s, mid-`90s answer to a very relevant question today, what is happening to our little girls?

GRACE: Look. Look, Marc. Marc, look at the sex offenders in this area. This girl did not run away.

KLAAS: Listen, this case reminds me of others. Lindsey Baum, Ashley Pond, Amanda Ghettis (ph), three girls who left home to go from point A to point B, that never got to point B. In the case of the first -- in the case of Amanda and Ashley, it was a local pervert who had kidnapped and murdered the children.

In the case of Lindsey Baum it still has not been solved. They still say it might be a runaway. I don`t believe it in any of these cases.

GRACE: Tip line 325-728-5294. Where is Hailey?

I don't think mom knew the boyfriend got fired (or walked off after a fight) from his job on Monday until AFTER she'd said he'd come home from work around 3pm on Nancy's show.

Big red flag, imo.  He's been lying to mom.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

She did admit saying it, and then she said "I know now" that he'd left his job by 6:30am and went to his mothers house.  She said his mother has confirmed that he was there all day.

I think mom knows she's been lied to by BF, and there's a big hinkey stinkey going on IMO.

BF has agreed to take a polygraph, it's scheduled for in the morning.

Did Haley know what happened at his job that day?   ::MonkeyEek::

For me too, Fanny ::MonkeyNoNo::
Boyfriend is key here. I agree Mom is naive but she seems exhausted. I think Bio Dad and Mom are scared and frustrated, jmo. Boyfriend should have been poly'd first day.
I would like to see the FBI down there and perhaps Tim Miller and his search team. Where are the search parties?

Bloodhounds Track Dunn's Scent to Colorado City Motel

Reported by: Austin Kellerman
Tuesday, January 04 2011

Bloodhounds have been brought in during the search for missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City, according to Dunn's mother.

According to the Nance Grace program on "HLN," bloodhounds were able to track Hailey's scent from her neighborhood to the nearby Western Suites, 2233 Vine Street.


Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, confirmed that dogs were brought in and indeed tracked Hailey's scent to the hotel. Local authorities have not yet confirmed this information to the news media, according to KTAB's Priscilla Luong.

Dunn told the program that law enforcement was in the process of reviewing surveillance video from the motel.

Hailey's mother also says authorities told her that someone claims to have spotted her daughter, Hailey's friend "Mary Beth," and a boy she didn't recognize Monday evening in town. Hailey's last confirmed sighting was by her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, at 3 p.m. Monday.

Dunn also told Nancy Grace both her and her boyfriend's cell phones were seized by authorities in hopes of tracking any calls that Hailey might have made.

Mark Klaas, founder of Klasskids, said the search for Hailey has been "horribly mismanaged." Klaas said Billie Dunn's boyfriend needs to march into the police stations and demand to receive a polygraph test.

According to Billie Dunn, Shawn Adkins is set up to take a polygraph test Wednesday morning.

New information was also revealed during the program about what Adkins did prior to Hailey's disappearance. Billie Dunn says Adkins was involved in a "blow up" at work Monday morning and was then released from his job.

During the epsiode, Grace and her panelists seemed to point the finger at Adkins. Earlier in the day, Adkins told KTAB's Priscilla Luong he'd never hurt the child.

"I could never harm Hailey," said Adkins. "I just want her to come home."

Texas Rangers and national media now involved in search for missing teen

Posted: Jan 04, 2011 8:21 AM CST Updated: Jan 04, 2011 10:34 PM CST


By Alex Butler - email
and  Michael Slother - email

COLORADO CITY, TX (KCBD) - The search continues for a missing Colorado City girl. Texas Rangers and national media are now involved in the hunt for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. She has been missing for more than a week.

Authorities were initially considering this a possible runaway case. Yesterday Colorado City police held a press conference and said that they were now considering Hailey a missing person.

Colorado City police, Mitchell County Sheriffs, Snyder police and Texas Rangers are all involved in the investigation.

Dunn was last seen leaving her house on December 27th around 3 p.m. Her mother's boyfriend Shawn Adkins said she was headed to her father's house and then to her friend Mary Beth's home just 5 blocks away. She never made it.

Authorities have been in meetings for the last two days following leads to get answers on what happened to the young girl.

"Texas Rangers are finally involved. I'm very happy about that, and I hope Colorado City Police Department isn't too proud to accept help from larger cities who may have some more experience or can give some insight, can come in and take a look and see that maybe, just anything simple hadn't been done yet," said Hailey's mother Billie Jean.

Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer told us both Hailey's father and friend Mary Beth said they weren't expecting a visit from Hailey. Police have not named any suspects as of Tuesday.

Hailey Dunn disappeared without a trace until bloodhounds searched the area. Officials say the dogs picked up her scent near the Western Suites off Interstate 20. Even though the dogs responded strongly to the area, there was no sign of Hailey. She was last seen with her mother's boyfriend.

Investigators say Hailey's mother's boyfriend could not take a polygraph because he was on prescription drugs. Billie Jean told Nancy Grace that her boyfriend, Adkins, would take a polygraph test Wednesday morning. ::MonkeyEek::

A $10,000 reward was raised to $25,000 for any information that will lead to Hailey's safe return.

Authorities in Colorado City requested an amber alert to be issued in the case but were denied 3 times for failing to meet the criteria. Kampfer said the missing criteria included: knowledge of a suspect, location of the abduction, description of a vehicle, and route or direction of travel.

Hailey's friends spoke out to television station KTSX in Abilene. One friend held back tears and said it was "hurtful, painful. We just want her home. She was my best friend." Another said, "I hope she comes home safely. Her Mom and Dad miss her, and so do we."

Hailey Dunn is 13 years old and weighs about 120 pounds. She has hazel eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing navy blue sweat pants, a light colored t-shirt, and pink and white tennis shoes.

If you have any information about her whereabouts, please call the Colorado City police at (325)-728-5294.

To me it seems like this is saying a woman is the witness, which would make her the last person to see Hailey and not the BF.  Additionally, if this is to be believed then Mary Beth would be lying, but to what end.  I tend to be overly suspicious, but I'd love to know the connection between that eyewitness and the BF.

Authorities explain why no Amber Alert issued for missing Colorado City teen
January 4, 2010


When to issue an Amber Alert

Each state AMBER Alert plan has its own criteria for issuing AMBER Alerts. The PROTECT Act, passed in 2003, which established the role of AMBER Alert Coordinator within the Department of Justice (DOJ), calls for DOJ to issue minimum standards or guidelines for AMBER Alerts that states can adopt voluntarily. DOJ’s guidance on criteria for issuing AMBER Alerts is:

- Law enforcement must confirm that an abduction has taken place.

- The child is at risk of serious injury or death.

- There is sufficient descriptive information of child, captor, or captor’s vehicle to issue an alert.

- The child must be 17 years old or younger.

Most state’s guidelines adhere closely to DOJ’s recommended guidelines

Source: www.amberalert.gov


COLORADO CITY — The Colorado City police chief said his department has attempted three times to get an Amber Alert issued for Hailey Dunn, a 13-year-old middle school student who was reported missing Dec. 28, but the requests have been denied.

“In each of the three requests, we’ve been told that there is not enough information currently available about Hailey’s disappearance to issue an Amber Alert,” Police Chief John Bivens said. “The minimum standard for creating an Amber Alert is knowledge of a suspect, a description of a vehicle involved in an abduction, and/or a route and direction of travel.”

Bivens said the department will continue to pursue issuance of an alert with each new piece of evidence uncovered.

On Friday, bloodhounds were taken to the six motels in Colorado City. At Western Suites, which is located at 2233 Vine Street and is adjacent to Interstate 20 and near the Dunn home, the dogs picked up on Dunn’s scent in the parking lot, City Manager Pete Kampfer said Tuesday night.

The scent led to a door of a ground-floor room at the two-level motel that opened in July, he said, but there the trail stopped. A search of the 24 suites produced no other evidence, he said.

Cristie Roye, manager of Western Suites, said police studied surveillance tapes but did not see the missing teen. Motel staff, she said, did not recall seeing the teenager, either.

A copy of the missing person flyer distributed throughout the city was posted on the office door.

Kampfer also said Tuesday that the reward for information leading to the whereabouts of the teenager had grown past $10,000 but has not yet reached the $25,000 figure that was prematurely announced earlier in the day.

Dunn’s disappearance was featured Tuesday on the television show “Nancy Grace.”

The city issued a news release Tuesday stating that the police department is working alongside the Texas Rangers, the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office, staff from the office of 32nd District Attorney Ann Reed, and other law enforcement departments in the region. The news release also said the department has done so since “shortly after the start of their initial work on the case.”

“From the start, our department and our colleagues from the other law enforcement and judicial agencies that have joined our effort have treated Hailey’s case as one of a missing person,” Kampfer said. “We’ve made no assumptions as to what occurred, intentionally focusing on rapidly collecting facts and using these facts to guide our work.”

He said that in the early stages of the investigation, alerts were distributed to both the National Crime Information Center and Texas Crime Information Center systems, which are computer networks established to link law enforcement personnel across the country and state. They also transmitted the missing person report through COPsync, a system that connects law enforcement officials in the region.

“We’re applying all the personnel and other resources necessary and appropriate to our work in finding Hailey, with no plans of letting up,” Kampfer continued. “This is a night-and-day endeavor for us all.”

Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, said she reported Hailey missing when she determined the teenager had not spent the night at a friend’s house. Hailey Dunn reportedly had told Billie Dunn’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who lives in the home, of her destination.

Billie Dunn has said she doesn’t believe her daughter would run away, but hopes she has and is simply scared to come home.

Local law enforcement officials have conducted investigations of people and places in the immediate area of Hailey Dunn’s home, including all registered sex offenders in the city, according to Kampfer.

Meanwhile, school will resume Thursday for students at Colorado Middle School, where Dunn is enrolled as an eighth-grader.

“She is well liked by students and staff,” said Principal Mark Merrell, mentioning Hailey Dunn’s bubbly personality.

Her American history teacher, Andra Maxwell, said the teen made good grades and participated in many activities, “anything she could get involved in.” She is a member of the band, a cheerleader and a member of the volleyball team, Maxwell and Merrell said.

“She is a very important part of the student body,” Maxwell said of the missing teen. “She is a ray of sunshine. She really is.”

Maxwell said teachers and staff at the school were concerned about the teen’s well-being and about her family.

“Everyone is concerned here, and we’re doing everything we can to help,” she said.

Anyone with information on Hailey Dunn’s disappearance should call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.

In my opinion, an amber alert should be issued for ANY missing child..what is the harm in getting the word out about a child missing an hour or a day???? someone could see the picture of the child and it could be crucial in the first hours!!

The mom on the NG show  said that she had not spoken to Mary Beth about Hailey being with her and the boyfriend that the eye witness said that she saw..the eye witness did not recognize the boyfriend..I thought that is what I heard anyways..I wondered at the time why Mom did not question Mary Beth as this could be a very important lead as to who saw Hailey last (Mary Beth and a boy)and who was the boy with Mary Beth and Hailey...
I think that the mom and dad are hurting badly and are not involved in Hailey's disappearance...The father seemed like he wanted to beat the heck outta someone to get some answers as to where his little girl is and I think I know who his anger was directed at...the boyfriend...jmo...
The father said that Hailey came over to see him every day, except the day that she disappeared....how sad!!!

If Hailey's scent was followed by the hounds to this hotel, could they get the hounds to follow the BF scent and see if it leads to the same place?  Could they do that?

That makes sense to me because the dog handler on NG said the dogs can even figure out backtracking.  I just don't understand the mother not questioning Mary Beth more.  If a witness actually saw the 3 after dark, then the boyfriend is in the clear and not the last person to see Hailey.  Who is this witness and who is the boy she didn't recognize?

Search for Missing Colorado City Teen Continues 1/05/11
January 5, 2011

Colorado City - Texas Rangers, sheriff deputies, police and your average citizen are all searching for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn who has been missing for 10 days now.


Police are considering Hailey a missing person and according to CNN's Nancy Grace, Hailey's mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, will be taking a polygraph exam this morning, but police have not released any suspects at this time. Investigators had said earlier that he could not take a polygraph because of prescription drugs.

The current reward for information leading to Hailey being returned home has been raised to $25,000.


Back on December 27th, Adkins had said Hailey was heading to her father's house and then to her friend Mary Beth's house. Police say neither the father nor Mary Beth said they were expecting a visit from Hailey.

Three times, the Colorado City authorities have been requesting an Amber Alert, but have been denied three times for failing to meet the criteria.

The four criteria for an Amber Alert to be issued in Texas are:
1. The child must be 17-year-old or younger, his or her whereabouts are unknown and the disappearance has been determined to be unwilling which poses a credible threat to a child's safety and health.
· If abducted by a parent or legal guardian, if the abduction happened in the course of an attempted murder or murder?
· If the child is 13 years old or younger, who was taken (willingly or unwillingly) without permission from the care and custody of a parent or legal guardian, by:
· Someone unrelated and more than three years older, another parent or legal guardian who attempted or committed murder at the time of the abduction?

2. The child is in immediate danger of sexual assault, death or serious bodily injury.

3. A preliminary investigation verified the abduction and eliminated alternative explanations for the child’s disappearance.

4. Is sufficient information available to disseminate to the public to help such as a description of the child, the captor or the captor's vehicle as well as route or direction of travel.

Hailey is 13 years old, 120 pounds with hazel eyes and brown hair.

She was last seen wearing navy blue sweatpants, a light colored t-shirt and pink and white tennis shoes.

If you have any information about her whereabouts, please call the Colorado City police at (325)-728-5294.

I've wondered about Hailey's friend's story but my suspicion has always been on the boyfriend just because he was the last one to see her and his story just at the time it didn't add up. After watching Nancy Grace tonight and hearing that the boyfriend is being polyed tomorrow and the things that Hailey's mom was saying about the friend I'm back at square one. My suspicion is back on the friend and I agree 110% with Susan Moss that they need hone in on that area. Something is NOT adding up there.

I know that the boyfriend seems hinky and everything and I totally get why people might suspect him but I just don't know. Giving the facts we have there are more hinky things with the friends story than the boyfriends. The only thing that was off about the boyfriends story is the working situation and that was it.

This case started over with the story of Hailey staying overnight at the friends house. Family of Hailey have that she'd never act out and that she was good in school etc. Why would this girl who everyone is saying is a good kid lie about where she was going? This is why I think something is hinky with MB the friend of Hailey. She claims Hailey never showed up there yet Hailey's scent was on HER doorstep! This is credible we KNOW that this is credible that her scent was led to the friends house.

Now we have in my opinion a credible siting by someone who KNOWS Hailey and KNOWS Hailey's friend MB that saw them on Monday evening up on that road. All three Hailey, MB, and MBs boyfriend were seen by someone who knows them personally. This isn't someone who just came upon the case and is thinking they saw them this someone who knows them personally! JMO but that speaks volume.

I think they need to search the friends house or something because something is not right. Why not take the greyhound dogs and get the scent of the friend and the friends boyfriend to see if their scent leads to that motel? Has MB's boyfriend been checked into and how old is MB's boyfriend? Where were they going that night that they were out that late? Did something happen to Hailey like she went missing or something when she was with them and the kids freaked out? Something is NOT right with that friend.

ITA.  I think tere is still A LOT to be reviewed by LE here.  The witness who obviously knew who Hailey and MB were, saw them and their account needs to be looked over thoroughly.  Also...I haven't heard any mention whether friends of Hailey's have stated whether SHE had a boyfriend or not?  Or someone she was interested in that she might have gone off with.  I just wonder if maybe she told her mom she was going to a friends house but really went to meet a boy somewhere?  You never know.  JMO

Hailey Dunn's Home Being Searched; Polygraph Has Been Administered To Boyfriend
http://www.ktxs.com/news/26377567/detail.html


 
COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Officials in Colorado City are continuing their efforts to discover evidence related to the disappearance of 13-year-old Colorado Middle School student Hailey Dunn.

Officials confirmed Wednesday that Shawn Adkins, the boyfriend of Hailey’s mother, has been administered a polygraph test. He was reportedly the last person who saw Hailey before she disappeared on Dec. 27.

Officials also confirmed that Hailey’s home is being searched Wednesday for any clues that may have been missed earlier.

The search was being conducted by the Texas Rangers, who searched the home and spent 10 minutes in an outdoor storage shed.

Hailey was last seen on Dec. 27 when she reportedly told Adkins that she was spending the night with a friend.

However, she never made it to the friend’s house, and the friend has since told KTXS News that she didn’t know Hailey was coming – that they hadn’t made plans for her to spend the night.

Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, has said her daughter may have spoken to friends on Dec. 27 after her last reported sighting.

According to the “Nancy Grace” television show, aired Tuesday night, bloodhounds have been used and possibly tracked Hailey’s scent to a local motel – although a search of the motel and review of the motel security videotaped apparently revealed no other evidence.

No statewide Amber Alert has been issued because the case has not met the criteria for issuing such an alert.

State officials have three times refused to issue the Amber Alert, Colorado City officials say, because there is no physical evidence to show that Hailey has been abducted or that she is facing physical harm.

A reward for Hailey’s return has now grown to $25,000.

What's a thirteen yr old girl doing hanging with a guy with thoughts like that. I wonder if the "Relax, relax" post was in reference to Hailey.. ::MonkeyNoNo::

I agree Fannie....
I just don't get why some mothers allow a "grown" man alone with their teenage daughters.
And I don't get why he needed to go to Hailey's Mom's house if she was at work if he didn't live there.
 The myspace (SA's) just sort of creeped me out too. I understand some post could be older but the "thoughts" there are dark.

Shawn also posted something creepy/odd on a "Tyler Adkins" myspace page too:

"Shawn Adkins: I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect - in terror...

Posted January 5, 2011

Until Jan. 3, a week after she disappeared on December 27, 13-year-old Colorado City, TX middle school cheerleader Hailey Dunn was classified as a runaway. Police Chief John Bevins declaration has been parroted by local media, most notably local radio station owner Jim Baum, who told the local NBC affiliate, "To tell you the truth, this is the first time, and I've been here 30 years, that we've had a runaway like this. It's so uncommon”. Calling a missing child a runaway has always been law enforcement’s fallback position. It allows them to defer responsibility and puts the onus of recovery on the shoulders of the family, because runaways are considered a family issue. This action also reflects an exaggerated and distorted sense of what is happening to America’s children. 

A child who seemingly disappears off the face of the earth deserves our attention, not our indifference. Like Ashley Pond, Miranda Gaddis, and Lindsey Baum before her Hailey stepped out of her front door and vanished. She was headed, first to her dad’s house across the street from where she lived with her mom, and then to a girlfriends home to spend the night. She never arrived. 

In McCleary, Washington ten-year-old Lindsey Baum was walking home from her girlfriend’s house on June 26, 2009 and is still missing.  In 2002, on January 9, Oregon City, Oregon resident, twelve-year-old Ashley Pond disappeared after leaving for school. Her friend and schoolmate thirteen-year-old Miranda Gaddis vanished from the same location two months later, on May 8. Neighbor Ward Weaver was arrested on August 13. Ashley’s body was found buried under a concrete slab in Weaver’s back yard. Miranda was found in a box in his tool shed. Like his father before him, Ward Weaver sits on death row awaiting an execution that will never occur.

 Hailey Dunn’s family, friends, school, teachers and other kids parents are the only thing that given this case traction. They took a stand and said, “Not in our community.” A temporary search center was established at the Colorado City Middle School cafeteria for volunteers wanting to help. They have saturated the community with thousands of flyers. An estimated 750 people, out of a population of 2,500 turned out for a prayer vigil on the evening of Jan. 2. An anonymous reward that began at $1,000 for Hailey’s safe return has now been raised to $25,000. Members of the community created a Facebook page for Hailey, and many others, including me, have put photos of Hailey in their profile pictures. 

The Police Chief said that all of the evidence points to Hailey being a runaway. However, there is no evidence, and his declaration is based solely upon statistics. She didn’t tell any of her friends that she was going to run away. She hadn’t threatened her parents that she was going to run away. Nobody saw her run away. She didn’t take anything with her. She had never before runaway. Thirteen-year-old Hailey Dunn was classified as a runaway due to a total lack of evidence, not the preponderance of evidence.

According to the National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway and Throwaway Children (NISMART-2), considered to be the definitive publication on missing child statistics, “The total number of children who were missing from their caretakers in 1999, including children who were reported missing is estimated to be 797,500”. Of these 357,600 (45%) were runaway/throwaway situations. Therefore, if you conclude that a missing child has runaway you will be right about half the time. But, that does not mean that you turn your back on those children. Given what we know about violence in America and the challenges that our kids face, it is our duty as responsible adults to recover and help kids who have run away or thrown out of their homes.

Amber DuBois was thought to be a runaway by LE, which slowed down the search for her.  John Gardner abducted Amber while she was walking to school and raped and murdered her.   ::MonkeyNoNo::  There are other cases where similar things have happened.  Yes, there are runaways, but I think we need to err on the side of caution, with so many predators out there.  And maybe some went willingly initially or were lured and got in over their heads.  It's sad.   ::MonkeyNoNo::

Yes, that is correct. I am not aware of "Hailey" having a boyfriend and if so what his name would even be.
My post regarding the "boyfriend" were always about BILLIE's boyfriend>>>>the LAST one to see Hailey alive.

I believe this is the Mom's boyfriend...not the girls.  Right?  Perhaps we should refer the Mom's boyfriend by his initials to avoid confusion.

Thank you for the correction. What is her mom doing bring a guy like that into her house with children. Even worse.

If Hailey's scent was followed by the hounds to this hotel, could they get the hounds to follow the BF scent and see if it leads to the same place?  Could they do that?
You bring up a really great idea!!  ::MonkeyAngel::I wonder if that can be done too.

Searchers from Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace/Ware units were out on horseback and foot today looking for possible clues to the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.

TDCJ officers searched a heavily wooded area on the western edge of town Wednesday morning, January 6, according to TDCJ Warden Matt Kennolly.

The search along the Colorado River continued after lunch on foot along Colorado City's southern edge from the prison to Business I-20 toward town.

The search was made at the request of the Texas Rangers, who are working with local law enforcement agencies.

The multi-agency task force have set up an operations outpost in the Mitchell County courthouse.

Mark Klaas is a man on a mission.. He is not stopped or even slowed down by the "politics" of LE agencies across our country..Infact, if anything it seems to make him even more determined in his mission of protecting, aiding, recovering, AND giving a voice to those who otherwise would be left silent..all of this done for the future of this country...OUR CHILDREN..

I admire and am in awe of Mark Klaas and his dedication to children of all ages, races, socioeconomic classes, etc, etc.. Continuing to ensure that his own precious Polly's short life here on this earth and her tragic, horrific abduction and death were not in vain.. He has gone above and beyond over and over, time and time again making little Polly's tragedy indirectly save many, many, many other parents' children's lives.. No, it doesn't make for even one second her tragic death worth all of these other children that Polly's father has saved..Its not looked at in those terms..Its taking a horrific situation, that of which is every parent's absolute worst of nightmares, that which Mark had no control over, an evil entering their lives hidden under the dark of night and ripped Polly from Mark and many other family that love and adore Polly..forever..gone in the blink of an eye.. Mark Has made the absolute best of the most horrific situation that any human can comprehend..whereas many parents become consumed with the anger, the hurt, the vengeance{all of which I am quite certain that Mark has felt and gone through all of those exact feelings and emotions}, but where Mark differs is that he took all of that hurt, anger, vengeance, resentment and has used all of that for these many years to fuel his dedication to the many other children that may or may not have been in or even died at the hands of evil much like Polly.. He has used his any/all of what are normally negative feelings and emotions that many times ruin the remainder of a parents life as well as their surviving children's' lives..unable to ever get past those emotions..Mark has used and turned all of these potentially negative, destructive, and damning feelings, emotions, etc and done for children across of our country what the work of hundreds of people and manpower weren't able to do..

He continues to make a difference each and every day of his life here on this earth.. I don't know his mind, but I do know his heart, its an open book for all to see that Mark Klaas will do and has done for the children of our country.. pushing for tougher laws, demanding better and immediate attention and manpower on those crucial moments and early hours of a child's disappearance/abduction, and crisscrossing this country spreading the word of "protect your children from the evils of this world"..

Mark Klaas is a man in a complete "class" of his own.. A man who does all of these things selflessly and genuinely FOR OUR CHILDREN AND NOT FOR FAME, NOR RECOGNITION.. HE IS A MAN AS I SAID THAT I ADMIRE AND AM AWE OF.. HE IS A MAN I WOULD BE PROUD TO SAY THAT I KNEW...

Mark, continue the fight..you've made more strides in the past years than what has been made in many decades.. You are making a difference...one child at a time... and none of us will ever forget what set you on this path of life..your precious Polly that would've have been 30 years old this past week.. We will never forget, nor can we as parents of this country's children ever thank you enough for your selfless dedication and work for our children..

Thank you.

Interesting they are focusing on the south end of town when the bloodhounds were tracking her to the north part of town near the interstate at the hotel. Her house is in-between the area they note as searching here and the hotel. Guess it doesn't matter...the whole town needs to be turned upside down til they find her.  It's such a small town, hopefully they can find something soon.  I wonder which direction from her house her friend MB lived?

The 13-Year-Old Texas Cheerleader Hailey Dunn Has Been Missing a Week
January 5, 2011

A small Texas town is upset that the state is refusing to issue an Amber Alert for a 13-year-old cheerleader who has been missing for more than a week.


The Colorado City Police have requested the alert three times since Hailey Dunn, a middle school student, was reported missing Dec. 28 by her mother, Billie Dunn.

The girl was thought to be spending Monday night at a nearby friend's home, but did not return home the next morning, the police said. The friend later said she was not expecting a visit from Dunn.

The cheerleader headed out around 3:15 p.m. on Dec. 27, first going to her dad's house and then supposedly to the friend's house.

Billie Dunn's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was the last person to see the girl, the mother told police. It was Adkins who reportedly said the girl was spending the night at a friend's home. Adkins was scheduled to take a polygraph exam today.

"We can't say one way or another if she is abducted or is a runway," City Manager Peter Kampfer told ABC News. "One of the requirements that they have for an Amber Alert in the state is that there is a witness or we have some sort of evidence that she's been picked up or been threatened. That's one of the qualifiers."

Kampfer is frustrated by the state's guidelines for issuing alerts at a time when help is needed.

"I would like to see it a little bit broadened. I don't hear many Amber Alerts in this area of Texas. In fact, I can't remember the last one I've heard," he told ABC News. "You'd like to be able to think you could invoke a request and get some help."

Police Chief John Bivens said the minimum standard for creating an Amber Alert is "knowledge of a suspect, a description of a vehicle involved in an abduction and/or a route and direction of travel."

Right now, the town does not have such information.

"We're having an ongoing investigation. As of today we're just following up on the initial leads and of course we have leads that are coming in from the public," Kampfer said. "We have nothing substantive at this time."

This case is currently being investigated by the local police, county sheriff and the Texas Rangers.

On Friday, bloodhounds were taken to the six motels in Colorado City. At one of them, the Western Suites, which is adjacent to Interstate 20 and near the Dunn home, the dogs picked up on the girl's scent in the parking lot. It led to a ground-floor room, but no further. A search of all 24 rooms produced no other evidence.


Seach for Missing Hailey Dunn

Colorado City, a town of only 5,000 people between the Odessa/Midland area and Abilene, has raised a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts and safe return of Dunn.

Hailey Dunn Disappearance Becomes National Story
January 5, 2011

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The search for missing Colorado City eighth-grader Hailey Dunn made the national media on Tuesday night.

Hailey was featured on the HNL Network national cable show "Nancy Grace." The show devoted most of the entire hour to the case of the 13-year-old Dunn, who disappeared on Dec. 27.

Grace spoke to experts about missing children’s cases and grilled Hailey’s mother, Billie, and her father, Clint Dunn.

Billie Dunn told Grace that bloodhounds were used over the weekend and that the dogs may have tracked Hailey’s scent to a local motel.

Authorities then searched the rooms at the motel and the motel security camera footage, but no other evidence was obtained.

Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer told KTXS that the Grace segment was “sensationalized” and that there were several inaccuracies aired on the show.
*************************************************************
(Bolded by me)
"Sensationalized?"    :scratch:  I wonder what the alleged "inaccuracies aired on the show" were?

Hailey Darlene Dunn
Texas Teen Vanishes Into Thin Air Days After Christmas
Hailey Dunn was said to be spending the night at a friend’s house on the evening of Monday, Dec. 27, 2010. But when the 13-year-old didn’t come home the next morning, Billie Dunn – Hailey’s mother – knew something was wrong. Cops say she immediately filed a missing persons report after learning Hailey’s friend wasn’t even expecting her as a visitor.

“From the start, our department and our colleagues from other law enforcement and judicial agencies that have joined our effort have treated Hailey’s case as one of a missing person,” said Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer. “We’ve made no assumptions as to what occurred, intentionally focusing on rapidly collecting facts and using these facts to guide our work.”

Police say alerts were also distributed to both the NCIC and TCIC systems, computer networks established to link law enforcement personnel across the country and throughout Texas, respectively.

“We’re applying all personnel and other resources necessary and appropriate to our work in finding Hailey, with no plans of letting up,” Kampfer said. “This is a night-and-day endeavor for us all.”


Now the Colorado City Police has even enlisted the help of the Texas Rangers to help locate the missing 13-year-old cheerleader. Cops tell AMW that they are also conducting a thorough and ongoing investigation of people and places in the immediate area of Hailey’s house, including all registered sex offenders in the city

Just speculating but my hubby used to work frequently in the Midland/Odessa area. There is allot of drilling activity in the area and hotels are needed for lodging for those who work in various capacities in the oilfield. So strangers to the community would not be abnormal with all of the oilfield activity.
The dogs tracking to the hotel is very disturbing to me. Someone could have been driving through town or met up with her and asked for directions and grabbed her, maybe stopped back at the hotel and grabbed their belongings and took off. It wouldn't make sense for SA to bring Hailey to a local hotel, surely he isn't that stupid. This is just so baffling and frustrating. How does a 13 year just drop off the face of the earth and no one saw anything.  ::MonkeyMad::

He has used his any/all of what are normally negative feelings and emotions that many times ruin the remainder of a parents life as well as their surviving children's' lives..unable to ever get past those emotions..Mark has used and turned all of these potentially negative, destructive, and damning feelings, emotions, etc and done for children across of our country what the work of hundreds of people and manpower weren't able to do..

He continues to make a difference each and every day of his life here on this earth.. I don't know his mind, but I do know his heart, its an open book for all to see that Mark Klaas will do and has done for the children of our country.. pushing for tougher laws, demanding better and immediate attention and manpower on those crucial moments and early hours of a child's disappearance/abduction, and crisscrossing this country spreading the word of "protect your children from the evils of this world"..

Mark Klaas is a man in a complete "class" of his own.. A man who does all of these things selflessly and genuinely FOR OUR CHILDREN AND NOT FOR FAME, NOR RECOGNITION.. HE IS A MAN AS I SAID THAT I ADMIRE AND AM AWE OF.. HE IS A MAN I WOULD BE PROUD TO SAY THAT I KNEW...

Mark, continue the fight..you've made more strides in the past years than what has been made in many decades.. You are making a difference...one child at a time... and none of us will ever forget what set you on this path of life..your precious Polly that would've have been 30 years old this past week.. We will never forget, nor can we as parents of this country's children ever thank you enough for your selfless dedication and work for our children..

Thank you.
Well written Southerngrl ::MonkeyAngel:: It's a shame that this was to be his destiny. John Walsh is another that comes to mind. I  highly respect the strength and passion they have put forth into other missing children cases. I think I would have just shriveled up in a little ball after all they have endured.

Mother’s Boyfriend Takes Polygraph; Home Reportedly Searched

The boyfriend of missing 13-year-old cheerleader Hailey Dunn’s mother was brought to the Colorado City law enforcement center this morning for a polygraph exam, according to CNN affiliate KTAB. Hailey’s mother Billie Dunn told Nancy Grace last night that her boyfriend Shane Adkins, the last person known to have seen Hailey, would be taking the exam today.


Authorities have also returned to Hailey’s home today to search for clues they may have missed earlier in the investigation, local station KTXS is reporting. According to their report, Texas Rangers searched the house and an outdoor storage shed. The Colorado City Record reported that searchers from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice were looking in a wooded area of town. A TDCJ warden confirmed that the agency participated in a search today, but he could not release any other details.

Hailey disappeared on December 27 after she reportedly told Adkins that she would be spending the night at a friend’s house. Dunn’s mother says the friend has told her she did not see Hailey that day. Dunn did say last night, however, that police have told her a witness reported seeing Hailey, the friend and a boy near a local store on Monday evening. She said police are checking surveillance video in an effort to confirm that sighting.

Also, Colorado City Police Chief John Bivens and City Manager Peter Kampfer are defending local authorities’ handling of the girl’s disappearance, saying that they have asked for a statewide Amber Alert to be issued three times since Hailey was reported missing. Bivens told the Abilene Reporter-News that their requests were denied by the state because the information they have does not meet the minimum standard required. He said they would continue trying to get an alert issued as they uncover new evidence.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, four criteria must be met to activate an Amber Alert for a child 13 years of age or younger:

• The child must be taken, willingly or unwillingly, without permission from the care and custody of a parent or guardian
• The child must be in immediate danger of sexual assault, death or bodily injury
• An abduction must be verified and alternative explanations eliminated
• Sufficient information must be available for the public to help locate the child, a suspect or a vehicle

A DPS spokeswoman confirmed that Colorado City officials have spoken with them several times about issuing an Amber Alert, but they have told them each time that the case does not meet the criteria at this point, mainly because there is not enough information to disseminate to the public to get people to help. She said that an Amber Alert is “a great tool but only one tool in a vast toolbox” of resources available in missing persons cases. In Hailey’s case, the Texas Rangers and crime analysts have been brought in to assist local investigators, and there are a number of steps they can take without issuing a statewide Amber Alert.

The DPS spokeswoman said the agency understands the family’s frustration but the Amber Alert criteria are necessary because they do not want to issue so many alerts that the public stops paying attention to them. Still, she emphasized that the lack of an alert does not mean that nothing is happening and that the Rangers are out there doing everything they can to find Hailey.

At least 20 law enforcement officers from jurisdictions outside Colorado City are investigating the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, including the FBI, Texas Rangers, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the 32nd District Attorney’s office, according to a Colorado City official.

Law enforcement officers were at the home of the missing teen this morning. Later in the day, the teen’s mother, Billie Dunn, was seen being escorted by Colorado City Police Department officers from the police station to the Mitchell County Courthouse.

Hailey reportedly told her mother’s live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend on Dec. 27. The next day, Billie Dunn contacted police when she realized Hailey was not at her friend’s house.

Earlier today, Billie Dunn and Pete Kampfer, city manager for Colorado City, said Adkins was taking a polygraph test with authorities.

Billie Dunn declined to comment while authorities were in her home and asked reporters to return in the afternoon. But later in the day, Dunn was no longer at home and was seen walking with officers between the Colorado City Police Department and the Mitchell County Courthouse.

The reason she was with law enforcement officers is not immediately clear.

Billie Dunn has said she doesn’t believe her daughter would run away.

Kampfer said in this case the department still has little information to go on.

“There’s just nothing to work with right now,” he said. “No witnesses saw her, there’s nothing right now to corroborate anything. We’re working all the different leads we have.”

Colorado City police put out a separate Nixle alert on a second child, also a possible runaway, who could not be located. Kampfer said the person was found within eight hours.

Kampfer described most of the police department’s calls as “very traditional” — dogs barking, neighbor complaints and occasionally domestic disturbances.

“We don’t get robberies and murders and that kind of stuff,” he said. “Something gets stolen once in a while ... you’ll get some graffiti or vandalism here, but it’s not daily.”

The Colorado City Police Department, which employs five full-time people, called in Department of Public Safety Texas Rangers, the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office, the Snyder Police Department and the district attorney’s office.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to call the Colorado City police at 325-728-5294.

Hailey Dunn's Home Has Been Searched, Polygraph Administered To Boyfriend

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Officials in Colorado City are continuing their efforts to discover evidence related to the disappearance of 13-year-old Colorado Middle School student Hailey Dunn.

Officials confirmed Wednesday that Shawn Adkins, the boyfriend of Hailey’s mother, has been administered a polygraph test. He was reportedly the last person who saw Hailey before she disappeared on Dec. 27.

Officials also confirmed that Hailey’s home was searched Wednesday for any clues that may have been missed earlier.

The search was conducted by the Texas Rangers, who looked through the home then spent 10 minutes in an outdoor storage shed.
Hailey was last seen on Dec. 27 when she reportedly told Adkins that she was spending the night with a friend.

However, she never made it to the friend’s house, and the friend has since told KTXS News that she didn’t know Hailey was coming – that they hadn’t made plans for her to spend the night.

Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, has said her daughter may have spoken to friends on Dec. 27 after her last reported sighting.
According to the “Nancy Grace” television show, aired Tuesday night, bloodhounds have been used and possibly tracked Hailey’s scent to a local motel – although a search of the motel and review of the motel security videotape apparently revealed no other evidence.

No statewide Amber Alert has been issued because the case has not met the criteria for issuing such an alert.

State officials have three times refused to issue the Amber Alert, Colorado City officials say, because there is no physical evidence to show that Hailey has been abducted or that she is facing physical harm.

A reward for Hailey’s return has now grown to $25,000.

Hello Monkeys, haven't been able to post on here much since I started back to work but I have a lot of questions already about this situation.....like  :

GRACE: Now when you say that they didn`t know, the friend didn`t know that she was coming for a sleepover, are you talking about Mary Beth and her mother, or just the mother?

B. DUNN: Just Mary Beth.

GRACE: OK.

B. DUNN: She`s the only one I`ve asked.

Why has the mom not spoken to Mary Beths parents? Only Mary Beth?
The parents really need to get together on this because so many times one child will say they are spending the night with the other and visa versa when really they are both going to be somewhere else.


Also what time would the boyfriend have normally came home if he had of worked his normal shift? would he have came home at 3 o'clock or was this a surpride to Hailey?


Why did the boyfriend SA go to his moms and stay all day and then come home ? Was he even going to tell Hailey's mom that he no longer had a job?

The brother was at a friends house .....did the brothers friends often come over and did Hailey and Mary Beth ever hang out or ride around with these friends?


Was Hailey wearing the same clothes when the person from town saw them as she was reported leaving in ? Did she have on a jacket? And can Mary Beths parents account for Mary Beth during that time?


Sooo many questions....has anyone heard the results from the lie detector test on the boyfriend SA?

UPDATE: Several Polygraphs Being Conducted in Dunn Case

Several people have taken lie detector tests in Colorado City today, as investigators try to rule out suspects in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

Shawn Adkins, the boyfriend of Dunn's mother and last person to talk to Hailey, went in for a polygraph around 10 a.m. and was still with investigators from the Texas Rangers at 2 p.m.

According to Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey's mother, Rangers searched the home where she lives with Adkins, Hailey, and Hailey's brother.

According to Billie Dunn, Adkins spoke to Hailey at 3 p.m. on December 27.  Hailey said she was headed to her dad's house, located just across a field, then to a friend's house to spend the night.  She never showed up at either location.

Bloodhounds tracked Hailey's trail Tuesday to a motel located near her home.

The Colorado City Police Department tried to issue an Amber Alert three times, but with no evidence of an abduction, Hailey's case failed to meet the criteria, according to Pete Kampfer, City Manager of Colorado City
"Of course as soon as we get that evidence, and get closer to that, on issuance of an Amber Alert, we're going to be right on top of it," Kampfer said, speaking on behalf of the CCPD.

The reward has grown to $25,000 for tips that lead law enforcement to Hailey Dunn.

It appears the Haily was being deceptive about her plans or ... the mother's live-in boyfriend is being deceptive.

In the process of elimination ... has the father taken a polygraph?

Has Hailey's "boyfriend" been questioned.

Texas Police Search for Missing 13-Year-Old Cheerleader
Aired January 4, 2011 - 20:00:00   ET


ALEXIS WEED, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: That is the boyfriend`s story, according to what the mother`s told us.

And also, Nancy, you know Hailey didn`t take any of her personal belongings with her. Her mother had told us if she was planning to leave, she likely would have taken a backpack, some sort of bag other than just the clothes that were on her back.

NANCY GRACE, HOST: Now wait a minute, Alexis. I don`t know if you grew up going to sleepovers across the street or not. But when you say if she was planning to leave, let`s be specific. Do you mean if she`s planning to run away or she`s planning to go to a sleepover?

WEED: Well, Nancy, according to the mother, she hadn`t even told this friend that she was planning to have this sleepover. The police have interviewed the friend, the friend`s boyfriend, and as far as we know, this friend had no idea she had plans for a sleepover that night.

GRACE: You mean the little girl?

WEED: Yes.

GRACE: Mary Beth or the little girl`s mom?

<snipped>

GRACE: Did your daughter have a boyfriend?

BILLIE DUNN, MOTHER: She had a boyfriend that I didn`t know about, about three weeks ago, for a short time.

GRACE: How old was he?

B. DUNN: He was 13 also.

 Janet....no mention that Hailey had a boyfriend..perhaps she did, but I don't recall that being mentioned..I think when boyfriend is being mentioned, it is about Mom's boyfriend..
as far as I know, bio dad has not taken lie detector test..boyfriend of mom supposedly took one today..would love to know the results of that one!

another thing that I found odd...Nancy said that she did not think that it was odd that Hailey did not pack a bag to go stay with a girlfriend who lived a few blocks away..my grand daughter who is only 7 packs a bag when she has a sleepover..tooth brush, hair brush, jammies, her little toy things that she and friends play with...I can't believe that a 13 yr old girl would sleep over night in the clothes that she had on all day and then walk back home with the same clothes on, no teeth brushed or her hair not done...no makeup either? these girls nowadays don't go anywhere unless they are all "together"...jmo. but mom agreed that Hailey would just go stay the night without packing a bag...

All this gnashing of teeth over an Amber Alert by the LE. Is it against the law to go to the media yourself and appeal for them to put out a missing child or teenager? And especially not wait a couple of days before you do.

I wonder if the search of the home with 10 minutes spent on the shed was AFTER the polygraph test was given to BF?
if possibly he did not pass and thus led them to do this search?

would like to know results

I would like to know also if the search resulted after the poly.  Wish we had the time search began.  This does not smell well.  What 13 yr. old girl does not pack a bag of some kind to go for an overnight?  I just can't see it.

Texas Rangers and FBI now involved in search for missing teen

Texas Rangers and national media now involved in search for missing teen

3:15   

By Alex Butler
and  Michael Slother

COLORADO CITY, TX (KCBD) - The search continues for a missing Colorado City girl. Texas Rangers and the FBI are now involved in the hunt for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. She has been missing for more than a week.

Wednesday, Texas Rangers were searching the Dunn home as well as the backyard. Collecting items, wearing gloves, carrying boxes and duffle bags off of the property. The Rangers carried flashlights and gloves into a shed in the back that had signs on it. Those signs read, "Danger," and "No Unauthorized Personnel." No word yet on what they were looking for, but detectives have been meeting with the family today. Bille Jean, Hailey's mother, left the home with The Rangers at about 1:30PM and family members say that her boyfriend was interviewed by the FBI today.

City Manager, Pete Kampfer, says authorities are investigating specific individuals but he would not disclose any more information. "I know they are working on different leads and some of them could be referred to as suspects or subjects. Authorities are being very aggressive on that of course that's part of the investigation and I do not have those names, but I know they are working on those particular individuals," Kampfer said.

Very anxious to get SA's poly results!!!  He went in at 10am and still there at 2pm and then Mom was seen leaving home escorted by LE.  One could suppose that SA  didn't do so well on polygraph so they brought Mom in to give her results first?  Dunno about this one but I do feel Mom's bf gives off a real hinky vibe.  I may owe him an aplogy and will honestly give him one but I just don't think this is going to turn out well.  I so wish this child has run away, rebelling, whatever, and now to embarrassed/ashamed/scared to call home now.    Praying for her and her family.

Just wanted to say, I have 2 13 yr old granddaughters. One will not leave the house for the night unless she has everything but the kitchen sink. The other will go to her girlfriends house with just the clothes on her back. I am not sure if the one would do that with just a casual friend. But according to her they are all bff's and they interchange just about everything.

School, Colorado City feeling loss of 13-year-old

COLORADO CITY — As Colorado Middle School students return to class today, the eighth-grade class will be one student short.

Hailey Dunn, who Principal Mark Merrell described as “well loved by all students,” has been missing since Dec. 27.

The 13-year-old girl was last seen by her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who was administered a polygraph test Wednesday by authorities. In addition, the home Hailey’s mother Billie Jean Dunn shares with her boyfriend and children was searched Wednesday afternoon by law enforcement officials for any clues related to the teen’s disappearance.

Merrell called Hailey an energetic cheerleader, volleyball player and track runner who maintains a good rapport with teachers.

“I think there will be a different feeling,” Merrell said of the school atmosphere without Hailey. “We’re a small town. Everybody will miss her.”

Students returning to the middle school will be greeted by individuals who will offer to answer questions and help them make sense of their emotions, Merrell said.

“We want to meet the needs of all our students,” he said. “We will do our best job with these students coming back.”

A specialist from Region 14 will be on campus, along with clergy and counselors from the Colorado Independent School District.

Hailey’s history teacher, Andra Maxwell, said she expects her students will return from the holiday break sad, apprehensive, and with many questions.

Maxwell said her strategy for keeping a positive attitude will be to keep gossip to a minimum and be supportive of all their emotions, no matter how they are feeling.

“None of us know very much at all,” Maxwell said of the rumors circulating about Hailey’s disappearance. “What I’ll tell students is what I do know: that she’s not here, but everybody’s doing what they can to get her back.”

Hailey’s disappearance has stirred the emotions of those who knew her, but strangers also are doing what they can to bring Hailey home.

Karen Berber, CISD family service coordinator, was taking a break from work Wednesday to tie bright orange ribbons around the pillars of the city’s child development center.

“I don’t even know her,” Barber said, “but I know if it was my child I’d want everybody coming out to help me.”

The ribbons, she said, are a constant reminder for everyone on the road to keep praying Hailey returns soon. They were first distributed Sunday at a candlelight vigil held for the missing teen.

According to Colorado City Mayor Carol Sue Dakan, more than 700 orange ribbons are flying around town. She said it is efforts from people like Berber that will make a difference in the case.

“People have been out walking blocks looking for her,” the mayor said of the community of 4,500. “That’s what it’s going to take to find her, the energy of everyone.”

Search Continues For Hailey Dunn: Day Nine Update (with video)

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Now into the ninth day of searching, five different agencies and all sorts of tools are being used to help find 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

Texas Rangers have been at the missing Colorado City teen's home all day collecting evidence.

Rangers spent a considerable amount of time collecting evidence from a shed in the home's back yard.

Authorities tell us in order to issue an Amber Alert, there must be evidence of an abduction, which could be why they're collecting evidence nine days after the teen disappeared.

Also Wednesday, we spoke to a family member, Hailey's uncle, who says he was given a polygraph test. Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, tells us, he was also questioned by the FBI.

One key player hasn't been seen or heard from since early this afternoon; Billie Jean Dunn, the mother of Hailey left her house with Texas Rangers and hasn't been in contact with family members since, according to her son.

Some local residents even took to the streets themselves this afternoon to look for the missing 13-year-old.

Anyone with information that could aide authorities in finding Haily is asked to call a tip line at: 325-728-5294.

Colorado City, Texas -

What began as a small town search is now a full blown national story as 13 year old Hailey Dunn remains missing nine days after her sudden disappearance on Monday December 27th.

Today it appeared that authorities were handling the case less like a runaway scenario and more like a criminal investigation of possible foul play.

The center of the investigation appeared to be the Dunn household at the corner of 18th and Chestnut in Colorado City, where the Texas Rangers combed through Hailey’s room and searched the backyard.

With cooperation and assistance from Colorado City Police, the Rangers opened a backyard shed and searched other parts of the property for details.

The Texas Ranger investigators declined interview requests with CBS 7 but Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, said the Rangers were looking for any clues or signs that might point out where Hailey went.

Wednesday afternoon Billie told CBS 7 that her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was with authorities taking a polygraph test.

City Manager Pete Kampfer said he heard the same thing but that he could not confirm the information.

However, at about 8:00pm, Hailey’s older brother David told our CBS 7 crew that Shawn had refused to take two polygraph tests Wednesday.

David says that Shawn signed the paperwork to take a third but then refused to take it and left the building.

According to David, the Dunn family and police had not seen Shawn since that last polygraph refusal. Hailey’s two unless corroborated that story but police are not releasing information about any polygraph tests at this time.

Hailey’s uncle Dale says he took a polygraph test and passed it and added that Billie may have taken one Wednesday night as well.

As of 8:00pm Wednesday night, Billie Jean Dunn was not at her home and her family believed she was in downtown Colorado City with law enforcement authorities.


Colorado City Mayor Carol Sue Dakan is thankful for awareness in the media and for support from the community, which has raised $25, 000 dollars in money to be offered as a reward.

From what CBS 7 crews gathered from officials, both Billie Jean Dunn and Shawn Adkins have been very cooperative with law enforcement and their investigation.

Billie Dunn told CBS 7 that she knows the media attention can help the efforts to locate her daughter.

The story of Hailey’s disappearance gained national exposure when Headline News discussed the incident on the “Nancy Grace Show”.

Grace said that she does not believe Hailey ran away based on the evidence.

According to City Manager Kampfer, search dogs picked up a few scent spots indicative of Hailey’s presence near the Western Suites hotel off I-20, just a few blocks from Hailey’s home.

Kampfer says the scents were detected after law enforcement brought the dogs to several locations, not by following any sort of “trail” to the hotel.

Colorado City residents are showing their support for the search efforts by flying orange colored ribbons from their car antennas and by posting fliers throughout the city featuring Hailey’s photo and information.

Some neighbors CBS 7 spoke with Wednesday say they are frustrated with what they perceived as a delay between the disappearance and the police investigation.

City Manager Kampfer says he’s asked for the issuance of an Amber Alert several times and has been denied.

He visited with DPS officials Wednesday afternoon. There’s no word yet about the result of that meeting.

Kampfer calls the lack of an Amber Alert “frustrating”.

Nearby communities are also hoping for Hailey’s safe return.

Two Forsan residents could be found cruising Colorado City neighborhoods Wednesday afternoon.

Diana Zubiate says she doesn’t believe Hailey ran away and she wants to help look for her and find out what happened.

“It’s weird”, says Zubiate.

Prayer vigils are scheduled for 5pm Sunday in Forsan and in Sweetwater.

As of Wednesday evening the police department is still working with the Texas Rangers, DPS and other law enforcement agencies to locate Hailey Dunn.

I really don't think the father is involved, but does anyone else think this is a strange comment he made last night?

"Clint Dunn said he does not believe family members are involved in this case.

He said he believes the person responsible is not nearby, and that as soon as he gets his vehicle running, he will hit the interstate to look for Hailey himself."

UPDATE: Boyfriend Refused Polygraph Tests in Dunn Case (with video)

Colorado City, TX—The boyfriend of Hailey Dunn's mother has refused to take polygraph tests pertaining to the disappearance of the missing 13-year-old and hasn't been seen since Wednesday morning, according to members of the Dunn family.
Hailey’s older brother, David Dunn, told KTAB's Priscilla Luong that Shawn Adkins had refused to take two polygraph tests Wednesday. According to a report from the CBS affiliate in Midland, Adkins signed the paperwork to take a third but then refused to take it and left the building.

The Texas Rangers have yet to confirm or deny these developments being reported by family members.

On Wednesday, Texas Rangers searched the home occupied by Billie Dunn, Adkins, Hailey, and David.

Thursday morning, David Dunn told KTAB News his mother was sleeping inside the family's home after spending the evening at the law enforcement center.

According to Billie Dunn, Adkins spoke to Hailey at 3 p.m. on December 27.  Hailey said she was headed to her dad's house, located just across a field, then to a friend's house to spend the night.  She never showed up at either location.

Bloodhounds tracked Hailey's trail Friday to a motel located near her home.

According to the Colorado City Record, crews went out on horseback and foot Wednesday searched wooded areas out the outskirts of Colorado City.

The Colorado City Police Department tried to issue an Amber Alert three times, but with no evidence of an abduction, Hailey's case failed to meet the criteria, according to Pete Kampfer, City Manager of Colorado City

"Of course as soon as we get that evidence, and get closer to that, on issuance of an Amber Alert, we're going to be right on top of it," Kampfer said, speaking on behalf of the CCPD.

The reward has grown to $25,000 for tips that lead law enforcement to Hailey Dunn.

Searchers check wooded areas of town

Searchers from Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace/Ware units were out on horseback and foot today looking for possible clues to the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.

TDCJ officers searched a heavily wooded area on the western edge of town Wednesday morning, January 6, according to TDCJ Warden Matt Kennolly.

The search along the Colorado River continued after lunch on foot along Colorado City's southern edge from the prison to Business I-20 toward town.

The search was made at the request of the Texas Rangers, who are working with local law enforcement agencies.

The multi-agency task force have set up an operations outpost in the Mitchell County courthouse.

School, Colorado City feeling loss of 13-year-old

COLORADO CITY — As Colorado Middle School students return to class today, the eighth-grade class will be one student short.

Hailey Dunn, who Principal Mark Merrell described as “well loved by all students,” has been missing since Dec. 27.

The 13-year-old girl was last seen by her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who was administered a polygraph test Wednesday by authorities. In addition, the home Hailey’s mother Billie Jean Dunn shares with her boyfriend and children was searched Wednesday afternoon by law enforcement officials for any clues related to the teen’s disappearance.

Merrell called Hailey an energetic cheerleader, volleyball player and track runner who maintains a good rapport with teachers.

“I think there will be a different feeling,” Merrell said of the school atmosphere without Hailey. “We’re a small town. Everybody will miss her.”

Students returning to the middle school will be greeted by individuals who will offer to answer questions and help them make sense of their emotions, Merrell said.

“We want to meet the needs of all our students,” he said. “We will do our best job with these students coming back.”

A specialist from Region 14 will be on campus, along with clergy and counselors from the Colorado Independent School District.

Hailey’s history teacher, Andra Maxwell, said she expects her students will return from the holiday break sad, apprehensive, and with many questions.

Maxwell said her strategy for keeping a positive attitude will be to keep gossip to a minimum and be supportive of all their emotions, no matter how they are feeling.

“None of us know very much at all,” Maxwell said of the rumors circulating about Hailey’s disappearance. “What I’ll tell students is what I do know: that she’s not here, but everybody’s doing what they can to get her back.”

Hailey’s disappearance has stirred the emotions of those who knew her, but strangers also are doing what they can to bring Hailey home.

Karen Berber, CISD family service coordinator, was taking a break from work Wednesday to tie bright orange ribbons around the pillars of the city’s child development center.

“I don’t even know her,” Barber said, “but I know if it was my child I’d want everybody coming out to help me.”

The ribbons, she said, are a constant reminder for everyone on the road to keep praying Hailey returns soon. They were first distributed Sunday at a candlelight vigil held for the missing teen.

According to Colorado City Mayor Carol Sue Dakan, more than 700 orange ribbons are flying around town. She said it is efforts from people like Berber that will make a difference in the case.

“People have been out walking blocks looking for her,” the mayor said of the community of 4,500. “That’s what it’s going to take to find her, the energy of everyone.”

Rumors of missing boyfriend unfounded

Rumors that Billie Dunn's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, has disappeared are unfounded according to family friends.

Reports were circulated that Adkins fled during a polygraph test Wednesday.

"He is not missing," said Peggy, a family friend, who asked not to use her last name. "Family friends have said he is in Big Spring at his mother's."

Numerous rumors concerning the disappearance of Hailey Dunn can neither be confirmed nor denied as local authorities have closed the lid on the release of information. Questions about 'an item of interest' found in a shed on the Dunn property, possible suspects, failed polygraph tests, even the investigation at a local motel near I-20 are not being verified by local authorities.

That there were a number of failed polygraphs was, however, confirmed by a family friend, now staying at the Dunn residence on 1804 Chestnut.

Dunn will be featured again on the Nancy Grace show this evening via telephone interview.

Police follow new lead


Members of a joint law enforcement task force are still pursuing information concerning the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City, Texas as  police officers follow another lead this morning.

 Officers have reviewed hours worth of tape at local motels and convenience stores, seeking a clue to the whereabouts of the missing middle schooler.

Last Friday, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace/Ware units searched the northwest portion of town, near the girl's home with three bloodhounds, according to Warden Matt Kennolly.

A later search was conducted at the Snyder  landfill.

"All searches came up negative," Kennolly said. "We deemed them 'no find,' which means we did not find the missing girl."

UPDATE: Dunn Family Reports Failed Lie Detector Tests  (with video)

Colorado City, TX—   Hailey Dunn's mother says a handful of people connected to her family were told by authorities that they failed polygraph tests that have been administered over the last few days.
Billie Dunn wasn't prepared to name names. However, she told KTAB's Priscilla Luong she and her family's frustration is beginning to mount.

According to Billie Dunn, her boyfriend Shawn Adkins did take a polygraph test. After the test, he did not return to the home he shares with Billie Dunn.

Sources tell KTAB News he is not in custody and authorities are aware of his whereabouts.


Hailey’s older brother, David Dunn, told KTAB's Priscilla Luong earlier in the day Thursday that Adkins had refused to take the first two polygraph tests Wednesday. According to the Dunn family, Adkins eventually took the test.

Wednesday afternoon, Billie Dunn was asked to go to the law enforcement center in town. Dunn tells KTAB News she was interrogated for nearly 12 hours and is "exhausted."

The Texas Rangers have yet to confirm or deny these developments being reported by family members.

On Wednesday, Texas Rangers searched the home occupied by Billie Dunn, Adkins, Hailey, and David.

According to Billie Dunn, Adkins spoke to Hailey at 3 p.m. on December 27.  Hailey said she was headed to her dad's house, located just across a field, then to a friend's house to spend the night.  She never showed up at either location.

Bloodhounds tracked Hailey's trail Friday to a motel located near her home.

According to the Colorado City Record, crews went out on horseback and foot Wednesday searched wooded areas out the outskirts of Colorado City.

The Colorado City Police Department tried to issue an Amber Alert three times, but with no evidence of an abduction, Hailey's case failed to meet the criteria, according to Pete Kampfer, City Manager of Colorado City

"Of course as soon as we get that evidence, and get closer to that, on issuance of an Amber Alert, we're going to be right on top of it," Kampfer said, speaking on behalf of the CCPD.

The reward has grown to $25,000 for tips that lead law enforcement to Hailey Dunn.

Janet....no mention that Hailey had a boyfriend..perhaps she did, but I don't recall that being mentioned..I think when boyfriend is being mentioned, it is about Mom's boyfriend..
as far as I know, bio dad has not taken lie detector test..boyfriend of mom supposedly took one today..would love to know the results of that one!

Billie Dunn told Nancy Grace that there had been a boyfriend in the picture.

Janet

Consider there had been no sleepover plans ... ot appears that Haily was being deceptive about her plans or ... the mother's live-in boyfriend is being deceptive.

In the process of elimination ... has the father taken a polygraph?

Has Hailey's "boyfriend" been questioned.

ALEXIS WEED, NANCY GRACE PRODUCER: That is the boyfriend`s story, according to what the mother`s told us.

And also, Nancy, you know Hailey didn`t take any of her personal belongings with her. Her mother had told us if she was planning to leave, she likely would have taken a backpack, some sort of bag other than just the clothes that were on her back.

NANCY GRACE, HOST: Now wait a minute, Alexis. I don`t know if you grew up going to sleepovers across the street or not. But when you say if she was planning to leave, let`s be specific. Do you mean if she`s planning to run away or she`s planning to go to a sleepover?

WEED: Well, Nancy, according to the mother, she hadn`t even told this friend that she was planning to have this sleepover. The police have interviewed the friend, the friend`s boyfriend, and as far as we know, this friend had no idea she had plans for a sleepover that night.

GRACE: You mean the little girl?

WEED: Yes.

GRACE: Mary Beth or the little girl`s mom?

<snipped>

GRACE: Did your daughter have a boyfriend?

BILLIE DUNN, MOTHER: She had a boyfriend that I didn`t know about, about three weeks ago, for a short time.

GRACE: How old was he?

B. DUNN: He was 13 also.

Search Continues For Hailey Dunn: Five Agencies Involved (with video)

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Now after nine days of searching, five different agencies and all sorts of tools are being used to help find 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

Texas Rangers were at the missing Colorado City teen's home Wednesday collecting evidence.

Rangers spent a considerable amount of time collecting evidence from a shed in the home's back yard.

Authorities tell us in order to issue an Amber Alert, there must be evidence of an abduction, which could be why they're collecting evidence nine days after the teen disappeared.

Also Wednesday, we spoke to a family member, Hailey's uncle, who says he was given a polygraph test. Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, tells us, he was also questioned by the FBI.

Billie Jean Dunn, the mother of Hailey, left her house with Texas Rangers early Wednesday afternoon and wasn't in contact with family members the rest of the day, according to her son.

Some local residents even took to the streets themselves Wednesday afternoon to look for the missing 13-year-old.

Anyone with information that could aid authorities in finding Hailey is asked to call a tip line at: 325-728-5294.

Missing teen's grandmothers speak out, pray that she's safe

SNYDER, TX (KCBD) - It's been 9 days since family and friends have seen or heard from 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. Wednesday, the FBI joined the investigation.

As investigators searched Dunn's mother Billie Jean's home in Colorado City, her father Clint spoke with authorities for hours in Snyder.

Hailey has 2 grandmothers who also live there; they haven't seen her since Christmas. They say they won't stop hoping and praying until she's found.

Connie Jones, one of Hailey's grandmothers, changed her answering machine. It's a special message for Hailey. We listened to a portion of the message. "I'm staying home as much as I can in hopes that you call me. I love you my baby."

Jones worries that someone has her granddaughter. "I think someone's took her because Hailey, she's a home person."

In that home in Colorado City, Hailey lives with Billie Jean and her mother's boyfriend Shawn Adkins. Adkins was the last person to see Hailey. On Wednesday Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer said Adkins took a lie detector test.

Jones said Hailey didn't care much for Adkins. "She don't like Shawn being there; but she wants her mom and dad to go back together," she said.

Hailey's mother and father separated 3 years ago; Jones says the divorce was hard on Hailey.

Connie Ostrander is Hailey's other grandmother in Snyder. "I just don't understand this because she doesn't do this. She's not the type to run away," she said.

Ostrander has this message for Hailey: "Please just come home. We miss you so much. We love you; we need you here with us. If you get this, please Hailey, come home."

Authorities have yet to determine if Hailey was abducted or if she ran away. On Wednesday they were searching a shed behind her mother's house; an area neighbors say she spent a lot of time. "Every day, a lot, she would always be back there on the phone," a neighbor told us.

In both grandmothers' homes, pictures of Hailey are everywhere. They serve as a constant reminder for them to pray and hope for the best. "Please if you know anything please contact the police, 911, anything," Ostrander said.

"I want her home, she's been gone too long, and they say after so long she might not come home," said Jones

Kampfer said authorities made a lot of progress from Tuesday. While they have not named any persons of interest, he says they've narrowed down to a focus group of individuals that may know more information.

If you have any information on Hailey's whereabouts, call Colorado City police at (325)-728-5294.

Just curious here.  How long does it usually take for a cell phone company to release call information to LE?  They would have this info by now, right?  I remember there was someone who mentioned seeing Hailey on her Mom's cell phone in the yard around lunchtime.  I wonder who the last person she spoke to on that phone was.

Does anyone else find it odd that a 13 yo girl spends her time in the yard by the shed on the phone ? Most teenage girls would be in their bedrooms talking on the phone. I'm wondering if there were privacy issues in the house or if she felt uncomfortable in the house while mom was at work.
After seeing BF's myspace I don't see him taking "attitude" from a girl re: wanting parents back together again.  IMOO

It looks like through a miscommunication between Colorado City LE and the City Manager, the reward is NOT up to $25K.  It is at $15K:

Police follow new lead, reward increased

Posted January 6, 2011 - 12:24pm

Members of a joint law enforcement task force are still pursuing information concerning the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City, Texas as  police officers follow another lead this morning.

Officers have reviewed hours worth of tape at local motels and convenience stores, seeking a clue to the whereabouts of the missing middle schooler and the Mitchell County Sheriff's Office has spent the past two days checking bridges and culverts.

As of Thursday at noon, the amount of reward money offered for Hailey's safe return which stood at $10,000, has been increased to $15,000.
Last Friday, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace/Ware units searched the northwest portion of town, near the girl's home with three bloodhounds, according to Warden Matt Kennolly.

A later search was conducted at the Snyder  landfill.

"All searches came up negative," Kennolly said. "We deemed them 'no find,' which means we did not find the missing girl."

An aerial search of the north eastern part of town has been discussed.

Post on Colorado Record's Facebook: 
"We just talked with Pete and what happened when he spoke to the KTXS reporter was he had been promised additional funds to bring the total to $25,000. However, when he went to talk to the PD, those funds have not come in yet, so the total reward stands officially at $10,000 according to both Kampfer and the PD. Hopefully, the remaining monies will come in tonight and we can change the paper in the morning, but as it stands it's $10,000."

Rpt: Boyfriend of missing cheerleader's mom refuses poly
Posted: 01:24 PM ET


Despite Hailey Dunn’s mother’s claim Tuesday night that her boyfriend Shane Adkins would take a polygraph test yesterday and reports that he was taken to the law enforcement center do it, family members now reportedly say that he refused. Hailey’s brother David Dunn told CNN affiliate KTAB that Adkins had refused to take two polygraphs. Another local report indicates Adkins signed paperwork for a third polygraph request but then refused and left the building. According to what David Dunn told KTAB, his family has not seen Adkins since then. Two of Hailey’s uncles also told affiliate CBS7 that Adkins has refused to take a polygraph three times. Police have not confirmed or denied any of those reports. David Dunn also told KTAB that his mother was at the law enforcement center with investigators last night.

UPDATE 12:00 PM

Colorado City, Texas -

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice search guards and dogs did a "grid search" overnight, even scouring the riverbeds.

Colorado City officials confirm Texas Rangers have heard that Hailey’s mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, has skipped town. It has not been confirmed by officials that he has skipped polygraph testing.

Adkins has not been named a suspect and authorities have not been able to corroborate this account.

City officials confirm they are sending the DPS helicopter to continue searching the area.

Yesterday, authorities were focusing their search on the home of Hailey Dunn and a shed just behind it.

Several officials were seen carrying out bags of what appear to be evidence.

Meanwhile, city officials say foul play is now a possibility.

Does anyone else find it odd that a 13 yo girl spends her time in the yard by the shed on the phone ? Most teenage girls would be in their bedrooms talking on the phone. I'm wondering if there were privacy issues in the house or if she felt uncomfortable in the house while mom was at work.
After seeing BF's myspace I don't see him taking "attitude" from a girl re: wanting parents back together again.  IMOO

No.  Not if that 13 year old is afforded a cell phone and the opportunity to speak in private.  Billie Dunn admitted to Nancy Grace that unknown to her Hailey had a boyfriend.

I have an almost 13 year old grandson.  If Mom and Dad give him an inch regarding a privilege ...  at times this young man has deceptively taken a mile.  My daughter and SIL worked very hard at the balancing act regarding how much to loosen the reins.

Hailey Dunn Missing: 13-Year-Old Texas Girl Vanished A Week Ago


COLORADO CITY, Texas (CBS/KOSA) What began as a small-town search has become a statewide investigation as central Texas girl Hailey Dunn remains missing more than a week after her sudden disappearance.

The 13-year-old cheerleader from the community about 75 miles west of Abilene was last seen on Dec. 27, after telling her mother's boyfriend she was spending the night at a friend's house. However, after questioning, police learned that the friend had no idea Hailey was coming over.

The Texas Rangers and Colorado City police have searched Hailey's home and surrounding areas. According to CBS affiliate KOSA, rangers were seen carrying garbage bags from her house into their squad cars.

Authorities are also searching the phone records of Hailey's mother and her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins.  KOSA reports Adkin has been given a polygraph exam. The results have not been disclosed.


Several residents are upset and are critical of the time lapse between when Hailey went missing and the investigation. Reports say the Colorado City manager has tried 3 times to have an amber alert issued, but to no avail.

Police say they tried to issue an Amber Alert but were unable to do so because there is "not enough information" on Hailey's disappearance, according to Fox News.

"The minimum standard for creating an Amber Alert is knowledge of a suspect, a description of a vehicle involved in an abduction and/or a route and direction of travel," Colorado City Police Chief John Bivens said in a statement, Fox reported.


Family members now fear the worst and a $25,000 reward is being offered for the girl's safe return.


Hailey Dunn is a white female and described as 5'1, 120 pounds with hazel eyes and brown hair with blondish streaks.

Anyone with information regarding Hailey's whereabouts is urged to call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294 or 325-728-3161.

UPDATE 12:15 pm - Exclusive Information On Search for Missing Colorado City Teen 01/06/11  (with video)

Colorado City, Texas -
Texas Rangers are now hearing that the boyfriend of missing 13 year old Hailey Dunn's mother is now missing himself.

The Rangers learned this from Hailey's 16 year old brother, David.

Major Randy Prince of the Texas Rangers is now telling city hall that the investigation is ongoing and that they have some very "hot" leads they are following. Prince tells city hall that "the focus has intensified".

In a visit to the Dunn household this morning a family friend answered the door and told our CBS 7 crew that the family is tired and does not wish to speak with the media.

However, she said that Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother, will be doing a live interview on the Nancy Grace show once again this evening.

According to Colorado City Manager, Pete Kampfer, a DPS helicopter will be flying above the city this afternoon conducting a comprehensive aerial search.

Kampfer reports a ground search by TDCJ prison guards with dogs has concluded.

Kampfer declined to release the results of the search but did say that the guards conducted a "grid" search combing each city block and the riverbed.

The City Manager says he has also heard that Hailey's brother said Shawn Adkins "bolted" Wednesday night.

On a positive note, the Lamar billboard company is contributing to the search efforts by putting up a message regarding Hailey's disappearance on their digital billboards all along Interstate 20.

CBS 7 is LIVE IN Colorado City at noon, 4:30pm, 5:00pm and 6:00pm with the latest details.

UPDATE: Search for Missing Girl Spreads to Internet

COLORADO CITY - The search for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has spilled over onto the Internet. The website findhaileydunn.com has been filled with articles and updates about the little girl.

It also includes an interview Hailey's mother did with Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News and reports that the reward for information about Hailey has been raised to $25,000.

The 13-year-old cheerleader was last seen on December 27 in Colorado City and since that time residents in Mitchell, Howard and Scurry Counties have rallied to try and find her.

Colorado City officials tell NewsWest9 that the FBI has now joined the investigation which already includes several agencies including the Texas Rangers.

Police originally believed her to be a runaway, but after more than a week they're now calling her a missing person.

So far, the state has not issued an Amber Alert for the girl, which has caused many in the Colorado City area to question why. Here are the requirements for an Amber Alert:

•A child must be under 17 years of age and there needs to be proof they were taken unwillingly.
•There also needs to be proof the child is in immediate danger.
•There also must be enough evidence to release to the public.
If you've seen Hailey or know anything about her disappearance, please call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.

Helicopter being used in search for missing Colorado City teen

The search continued today for Hailey Dunn, the Colorado City middle school student who has been missing for 10 days.

Pete Kampfer, city manager and spokesman for Colorado City Police Department, said this morning that Texas Rangers discontinued their foot search for the 13-year-old girl along the Colorado River on Wednesday and that they would begin a helicopter search this afternoon.

Hailey Dunn was last seen by her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who said she told him she was going to a friend's house. The friend said that she wasn't aware of any such plans.

"They've intensified the search since yesterday. They've confirmed some leads and are going with them today," Kampfer said.

At 8:30 a.m. today, Billie Jean Dunn -- Hailey's mother -- was inside her home with Hailey's 16-year-old brother David and Billie Jean Dunn's brother Dale.

David confirmed at that time that Shawn Adkins had not completed the polygraph test that he had originally agreed to take on Wednesday.

Kampfer said he couldn't confirm any information regarding polygraph tests that may have been administered.

"Sometimes just the idea of getting a polygraph adds to the situation," he said, referring to the general process of the polygraph test. "What you're looking for is a confession."

Billie Jean Dunn wasn't available for comment and said she would not speak to the media until after her phone call with TV personality Nancy Grace this evening. Grace's show appears on CNN.

Kampfer confirmed evidence was taken from Billie Jean's home Wednesday that may have led to leads being pursued today.

Lamar Advertising has placed Hailey Dunn's photo and information on several billboards along Interstate 20 between Abilene and Odessa.

Kampfer said strides have been made since Monday and a collection of agents from the FBI, Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers and local law enforcement are intensifying their focus today to conclude the investigation

Lamar Advertising Donates Billboards to Help Find Missing Girl

MIDLAND - Lamar Advertising, which leases billboards all over Interstate 20, is joining the effort to find missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.

Lamar Advertising tells NewsWest9 that they have donated billboard space up and down Interstate 20 between Abilene and Odessa.

Since an Amber Alert has not been issued, Lamar has created its own billboard design. The message will be going out on the digital billboard on Highway 191 between Midland and Odessa Thursday afternoon. They have also ordered traditional vinyl billboards to put up as well.

The 13-year-old cheerleader was last seen on December 27 in Colorado City and since that time residents in Mitchell, Howard and Scurry Counties have rallied to try and find her.

Police originally believed her to be a runaway, but after more than a week they're now calling her a missing person.

NewsWest9's David Marino and Anayeli Ruiz will have team coverage live from Colorado City on NewsWest9 at Five and Six.

Dunn Case Gets More Cable News Coverage

Reported by: Laura Kellerman
Thursday, January 06 2011

The Hailey Dunn case returns to Nancy Grace on HLN Thursday night, the first national broadcast to give attention to the Colorado City teen's disappearance.

KTAB is told the first 45 minutes of the show, which airs from 7 to 8 p.m., will cover the latest developments in Dunn's disappearance.

On Monday and Tuesday's shows, Grace interviewed Dunn's mother, father, legal and child safety experts, as well as members of the local media, including KTAB's Priscilla Luong.

Fox News aired a two-minute story (embedded below) on Thursday about Hailey's disappearance, but were fairly loose with the facts.

Dunn's mother has had a very forgiving attitude toward the national media, grateful that her daughter's name and picture are being seen by a wide audience.

yes I do..and I think that you are correct in thinking that Mom's boyfriend made her uncomfortable and that is perhaps why she spent so much time outside..so she did not have to be around him..maybe he was pissy towards her or perhaps he had made advances towards her..time will tell..

Missing teen's grandmothers speak out, pray that she's safe
Posted: Jan 05, 2011 8:38 PM PST
Updated: Jan 06, 2011 9:40 AM PST


Connie Jones, one of Hailey's grandmothers, changed her answering machine. It's a special message for Hailey. We listened to a portion of the message. "I'm staying home as much as I can in hopes that you call me. I love you my baby."

Jones worries that someone has her granddaughter. "I think someone's took her because Hailey, she's a home person."

In that home in Colorado City, Hailey lives with Billie Jean and her mother's boyfriend Shawn Adkins. Adkins was the last person to see Hailey. On Wednesday Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer said Adkins took a lie detector test.

Jones said Hailey didn't care much for Adkins. "She don't like Shawn being there; but she wants her mom and dad to go back together," she said.

Hailey's mother and father separated 3 years ago; Jones says the divorce was hard on Hailey.

Ok - I know this is a little off the subject but very relevant in this case. (But Mods - delete if you wish!)

When a new man (sometimes a women but usually a man) is brought into a home the death and danger rate for the children go way up. A child in a home with a non related male is SEVEN times more likely to be abused. The rate of sexual abuse is much higher. The rate of murder is higher. Yet young women seem to let man after man in the house to live without concerns for the children. As a disclaimer, I am a step parent. But I chose well. And we are married. The larger problem is when a single mom lets guys in.  This is very dangerous. Women need to know the risk before they let random guys in the house.

Ok - I know this is a little off the subject but very relevant in this case. (But Mods - delete if you wish!)

When a new man (sometimes a women but usually a man) is brought into a home the death and danger rate for the children go way up. A child in a home with a non related male is SEVEN times more likely to be abused. The rate of sexual abuse is much higher. The rate of murder is higher. Yet young women seem to let man after man in the house to live without concerns for the children. As a disclaimer, I am a step parent. But I chose well. And we are married. The larger problem is when a single mom lets guys in.  This is very dangerous. Women need to know the risk before they let random guys in the house.

Either these women don't read the news, or they have the "it can't happen to me" syndrome.

Search for Dunn intensifies with helicopter search

By Carol Parsons
Posted January 6, 2011 - 5:28pm

The investigation into the disappearance of Hailey Dunn is beginning to intensify and focus as more evidence and leads are generated, according to Colorado City city manager Pete Kampfer on Thursday afternoon.

“This afternoon, the Department of Public Safety will conduct a helicopter search of Colorado City,” Kampfer said.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace and Ware Unit personnel have already spent two days conducting a grid search of the town on horseback, with dogs and on foot. The search included all rivers and creeks, Kampfer said.

“We are trying to stay positive and put forth community effort,” he said. At a press conference held at 4:30 on Thursday afternoon, Kampfer said, "My continuing hope and prayers are that they find and return Hailey to Colorado City" in good condition. He also stated that the search for Dunn has been and is "a community effort at the grassroots level."

Today the task force command post moved from the county courthouse to the CC Thompson Building on 2nd Street. Six different agencies are currently involved in the search: D.S., Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado City Police Department, District Attorney’s office, Texas Rangers and the FBI.

Contrary to other reports, the Texas Rangers were brought in on the day after Hailey disappeared, according to Kampfer.

“Other local agencies in Snyder, Scurry and Nolan Counties are also involved in the search,” he said.
Kampfer does not know the results of the TDCJ searches, nor does he know the results of the search warrant served at Hailey’s Chestnut Street residence.

Lamar sign and billboard company will donate digital and print signs along I-20 in both east and west directions.

The official reward being offered for Hailey’s safe return is $15,000.  “That’s cash in hand with more contributions coming in up to $25,000,” Kampfer said.

“We will be taking on additional reserve or part-time officers to beef up the current law enforcement effort,” Kampfer said, who is also working with national, regional and local media.

“There has been a lot of misinformation. I’m asked lots of questions. Lots of time I don’t know the answer,” he said.

“What I’m trying to do is what everyone would like to have, trying to give out as much information as I can get out of the task force to fill in the blanks,” Kampfer said.

Sensationalized issues over Amber Alert and blame on the city upset Kampfer.  “We’ve done everything we can to issue an Amber Alert. There’s no failure on our behalf.”  The city’s request for issuing an Amber Alert was repeatedly turned down by the state because the prerequisites of a description of a captor or captor’s vehicle was not met.

Kampfer also clarified the reports about dogs tracking Hailey to the Western Suites motel.

“The dogs did not trail Hailey’s scent to the motels,” He said. “They took the dogs to different places trying to pick up the scent.  Motels are good places to start. The dogs did get a hit.”

Kampfer went on to explain that  investigators cannot determine when a trail has been made.
Hailey could have been there a couple of days before and the dogs would still have picked up her scent or someone else wearing an article of Hailey’s clothing would have the same results.

“Bloodhounds are scent specific,” Warden Matt Kennolly said. “The only thing we need is a scent article for the person we’re looking for. The dog will track only that scent.”

“Our dogs can run 48-72 hours, but I have seen scent dogs up to 7-8 days. There are so many environmental factors that come into play,” Kennelly said.

No possible lead has been overlooked as investigators have checked almost every surveillance camera in town, according to Kampfer. “It’s amazing what they have checked.  They’ve done a good job.”

Since the first day the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has been treated as a missing person.

“There’s no indication one way or the other that she’s still not in Colorado City or Mitchell County,” Kampfer said.

Update: Helicopters, Billboards Drawn Into Search For Hailey Dunn

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Search helicopters and billboards are now being used by law enforcement officials and family in the search for missing Colorado City teenager Hailey Dunn.

Thursday also marked the first day back at school since the Christmas holidays for Hailey's eighth-grade classmates at Colorado Middle School. With orange ribbons tied around nearly every tree on campus, the school day took place without 13-year-old Hailey.

Counselors were on hand at the school Thursday to help students deal with the absence and disturbing news concerning Hailey.

Search authorities also said the reward for returning Hailey officially stood at $15,000. Officials said they had erroneously reported the reward as being $25,000, apparently because some of the money was pledged but yet not donated. Nevertheless, new billboards put up Thursday announced the reward as $25,000.

Authorities in Colorado City are continuing their efforts at searching and getting the word out.

City Manager Pete Kampfer said helicopters have been provided by the Department of Public Safety to help search for Hailey. Search officials used horses and dogs – and even state prison inmates – to search creek beds in Colorado City and the perimeter of the city.

Kampfer said the helicopters are just more tools being added to the search.

"They can be used for not only search but for surveillance," Kampfer said.

The helicopters are also being used to fly in special agents. The FBI has been involved in the case since Monday, and FBI agents interviewed Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother, on Thursday. After these interviews were completed, Billie Dunn refused to comment to reporters gathered there.
Kampfer said the billboards have been donated by Lamar Advertising to inform the public of Hailey's disappearance. Hailey's disappearance will be displayed on billboards from Abilene, 70 miles east of Colorado City, to the Midland-Odessa area, some 80-plus miles to the west.

Kampfer, a former FBI agent himself, said he could not confirm any rumors swirling about who has or has not passed polygraph tests related to the disappearance. Different family members have made various unconfirmed and conflicting assertions about polygraph tests taken and their results.

Hailey was last seen on Dec. 27 when she reportedly told Shawn Adkins, boyfriend of Hailey's mother Billie Dunn, that she was spending the night with a friend.

However, she never made it to the friend’s house, and the friend has said she didn’t know Hailey was coming – that they hadn’t made plans for her to spend the night.

No statewide Amber Alert has been issued because the case has not met the criteria for issuing such an alert.

State officials have three times refused to issue the Amber Alert, Colorado City officials say, because there is no physical evidence to show that Hailey has been abducted or that she is facing physical harm.

They then gave the poly to Billie and told her she failed as well.
They also polyed one guy Billie does not know who he is

Authorities searching area in Colorado City as part of missing teen investigation


COLORADO CITY -- A helicopter search for missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn started around noon today.

Around 4 p.m., the helicopter landed in a field of brush near 21st Street. Authorities are now searching the wooded area south of Interstate 20. It was unclear what they are searching for.

The 13-year-old has been missing for 10 days.

Pete Kampfer, city manager and spokesman for Colorado City Police Department, said this morning that Texas Rangers discontinued their foot search for Hailey Dunn along the Colorado River on Wednesday and that they would begin a helicopter search this afternoon.

Hailey Dunn was last seen by her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who said she told him she was going to a friend's house. The friend said that she wasn't aware of any such plans.

"They've intensified the search since yesterday. They've confirmed some leads and are going with them today," Kampfer said.

At 8:30 a.m. today, Billie Jean Dunn -- Hailey's mother -- was inside her home with Hailey's 16-year-old brother David and Billie Jean Dunn's brother Dale.

David confirmed at that time that Shawn Adkins had not completed the polygraph test that he had originally agreed to take on Wednesday.

Kampfer said he couldn't confirm any information regarding polygraph tests that may have been administered.

"Sometimes just the idea of getting a polygraph adds to the situation," he said, referring to the general process of the polygraph test. "What you're looking for is a confession."

Billie Jean Dunn wasn't available for comment and said she would not speak to the media until after her phone call with TV personality Nancy Grace this evening. Grace's show appears on CNN.

Kampfer confirmed evidence was taken from Billie Jean Dunn's home Wednesday that may have led to leads being pursued today.

Lamar Advertising has placed Hailey Dunn's photo and information on several billboards along Interstate 20 between Abilene and Odessa.

Kampfer said strides have been made since Monday and a collection of agents from the FBI, Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers and local law enforcement are intensifying their focus today to conclude the investigation.

New Hailey Dunn Details Revealed on "Nancy Grace"

An update on the Hailey Dunn disappearance: According to Billie Dunn, she was questioned for 10-12 hours on Wednesday night after admittedly failing a polygraph test. Dunn explained the details of the polygraph testing on Thursday night's "Nancy Grace" broadcast.

Dunn also said that her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, also failed his polygraph test. Since then, Adkins has left Colorado City and is now staying with his grandmother in West Texas. Dunn said she asked Adkins not to come back.

KTAB's Priscilla Luong has confirmed that both Dunn and Adkins failed their polygraphs.

Dunn said investigators asked her if she had caused Hailey's disappearance, and if she was afraid of answering their questions.

Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, has not taken a polygraph yet, and is not scheduled to take one at this time. He says he has volunteered to take a test.

According to the broadcast, the Texas Rangers did a thorough search of Billie Dunn's home on Wednesday night, 9 days after Hailey disappeared.

UPDATE: "Substantial Leads" in Dunn Disappearance (With video)

Authorities in Colorado City say they have "substantial leads" in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.
"Our leads are primarily around corroboration and information from the different people that they've interviewed and talked to," said City Manager Pete Kampfer during in interview with Lane Stone. "We're corroborating all the different information and data that they've provided."

Kampfer says they're intensifying their investigation and narrowing leads.

At 5 p.m., KTAB cameras were rolling as troopers walked in and out of the Dunn home.

Kamfer also revealed for the first time the city is aggressively tracking sex offenders to make sure they know where they're located at all times. "We're also following up on information that they've provided us to make sure they are where they say there are," said Kampfer.

Kampfer also dispelled many of the rumors circulating -- including that Dunn's body was found by DPS helicopters.

"Nothing has been found of that nature," added Kampfer. "We're still very hopeful." A Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter has been flying over Colorado City this late afternoon  as crews continue their search on foot.

The chopper came down momentarily, landing in a field before going back up to search from the air.


Colorado City's city manager tells KTAB's Priscilla Luong a ground search conducted by Texas Department of Criminal Justice guards on Wednesday has ended. The crews combed the area on horseback and foot.

According to the Colorado City Record, the search took place along the Colorado River along Colorado City's southern edge from the prison to Business I-20 toward town.

The search was made at the request of the Texas Rangers, who are working with local law enforcement agencies.

It doesn't bother me that Billie failed her polygraph. It could be as simple as blameing herself for not calling the friends house that night.
Jessica Lunsford's grandmother failed hers too, she blamed herself for not locking the door.

It looks like Shawn changed the picture of one of his myspace. (The private first one listed above) It looks like a picture of him with HAiley, Mom, and brother. I don't remember that picture there before. I remember the two myspace pages having the same profile pic. Why change it now, Shawn?

Ok - I know this is a little off the subject but very relevant in this case. (But Mods - delete if you wish!)

When a new man (sometimes a women but usually a man) is brought into a home the death and danger rate for the children go way up. A child in a home with a non related male is SEVEN times more likely to be abused. The rate of sexual abuse is much higher. The rate of murder is higher. Yet young women seem to let man after man in the house to live without concerns for the children. As a disclaimer, I am a step parent. But I chose well. And we are married. The larger problem is when a single mom lets guys in.  This is very dangerous. Women need to know the risk before they let random guys in the house.

 ::rhino:: ITA and it is so relevant to me ::MonkeyMad:: I just can't imagine how divorced/seperated/single parents justify the risk?? I never knew those statistics TBM so thank you, even scarier. I know when I date I meet them at his house or wherever we are eating etc., and I sure as hell don't date anyone from FB or MS, but everyone knows I am super uptight about my kids (could be reading at SM for yrs)..

Also, I just read the article Klaas posted a few pages back and they are now thinking that it could be foul play???????? Ya think :2brickwall: :2brickwall: :2brickwall:

I also agree from what we know that LE has been so irresponsible in not erring on the side of caution from the moment she was reported missing. Why on earth would LE not run parallel investigations just to be on the safe side, and oh yeah IMO they need another spokesperson instead of the city manager and should have called in the Big guns ASAP if they weren't used to dealing with this type of a crime.

I was very impressed with Billie Dunn's response to questions on the Nancy Grace Show tonight.  She was very forthright regarding even the hard issues.  I am look forward to reading the posted transcript.  FYI ... Nancy Grace (HLN) repeats at 7:00/10:00 PM PT.

Recap

1.  Shawn refused two polygraph requests prior to agreeing to a third which he failed.

2.  After being informed that Shawn failed his polygraph ... an emotional Billie took one and failed.

3.  Billie asked Shawn to move out because of the failed polygraph and ... he went to his grandmother's home.

4.  Shawn informed Billie that Hailey was spending the night at a friend's home.  She wishes she had contacted daughter or friend's mother that evening.

5.  Billie met Shawn on Myspace.  They met in person one month later but did not move in together for 2 1/2 years.

What concerned me was that Hailey did appear to have a lot of freedom for a 13 year old ... at least in my world.  Rather than asking permission ... Hailey would leave notes informing Billie she was staying over at a friend's home.  On that fateful night ... Billie was not concerned.  Shawn had informed her that Hailey had said she was having a sleep over at Mary Beth's home.

Considering Shawn claims that Hailey stated she was spending the night at Marybeth's home and ... Marybeth claims there were no overnight plans.  It would appear that either Shawn or Hailey was being deceptive.

Although Hailey had unknown to her mother had a boyfriend ... I somehow do not believe she would be deceptive about the sleepover issue.  She had no way of knowing her mother would not attempt to contact or or Marybeth's mother.

Did that make sense?

Me either.  Under the circumstances, that makes sense to me.  I don't believe she is involved with Hailey's disappearance at all.

I just hope they find her alive, and soon.

It doesn't bother me either. But she seems to think because the boyfriend didn't pass his, makes her think he might have something to do with Hailey being missing. So I wonder if there is some other things that make her think that. Things she is just not saying.

I hope they find her alive too. There have been a few here lately on the thread that have been found.

It does make sense, but it seems like from what I've heard/read so far, Hailey was not used to being checked up on by anyone ... at least not immediately.  I hounded the daylights out of my children wherever they went, but not all parents feel it's necessary to do that even in today's world. 

But like you, I was impressed with Billie Dunn's appearance on NG tonight, she seemed very straight on with her answers.

I also pray that the outcome for this Hailey is much better than for precious little HaLeigh Cummings.

It doesn't bother me that Billie failed her polygraph. It could be as simple as blameing herself for not calling the friends house that night.
Jessica Lunsford's grandmother failed hers too, she blamed herself for not locking the door.

doesn't bother me about mom either..she didn't have anything to do with this in my opinion, except for bringing the boyfriend into her home if he is the one who harmed Hailey..
I hope this little girl is found safe...I am so hoping that she is hiding out somewhere...please let that be what happened to her...please...
watching NG right now..mom seems very truthful in her answers to NG...I believe Mom...

I was very impressed with Billie Dunn's response to questions on the Nancy Grace Show tonight.  She was very forthright regarding even the hard issues.  I am look forward to reading the posted transcript.  FYI ... Nancy Grace (HLN) repeats at 7:00/10:00 PM PT.

Recap

1.  Shawn refused two polygraph requests prior to agreeing to a third which he failed.

2.  After being informed that Shawn failed his polygraph ... an emotional Billie took one and failed.

3.  Billie asked Shawn to move out because of the failed polygraph and ... he went to his grandmother's home.

4.  Shawn informed Billie that Hailey was spending the night at a friend's home.  She wishes she had contacted daughter or friend's mother that evening.

5.  Billie met Shawn on Myspace.  They met in person one month later but did not move in together for 2 1/2 years.

What concerned me was that Hailey did appear to have a lot of freedom for a 13 year old ... at least in my world.  Rather than asking permission ... Hailey would leave notes informing Billie she was staying over at a friend's home.  On that fateful night ... Billie was not concerned.  Shawn had informed her that Hailey had said she was having a sleep over at Mary Beth's home.

According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said today that she knew Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey had never been to the Garcia home to spend the night.

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared on Nancy Grace’s program to discuss Hailey’s disappearance.

ok...then that is weird..first of all that Hailey would say that she was spending the night at MaryBeth's when she had never done that before..and that mom did not call MaryBeth's home since Hailey had never spent the night there before and the fact that the mothers did not know each other..that bothers me...as a mother, grand mother, I would want to know where my child was spending the night and with whom...

Yes.  Billie stated on Nancy Grace that her connection with Shawn began shortly after her separation from her husband.

This 64 year old granny who just celebrated her 45th wedding anniversary will never embraced the concept of the "living together" lifestyle.  Nevertheless ... I do give Billie credit that there was a 2 1/2 year relationship prior to Shawn moving in.  Maybe in that period of time she did not observe any red flags.

I hope answers regarding Hailey are forthcoming soon.

The investigation into the disappearance of Hailey Dunn is beginning to intensify and focus as more evidence and leads are generated, according to Colorado City city manager Pete Kampfer on Thursday afternoon.

“This afternoon, the Department of Public Safety will conduct a helicopter search of Colorado City,” Kampfer said.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice Wallace and Ware Unit personnel have already spent two days conducting a grid search of the town on horseback, with dogs and on foot. The search included all rivers and creeks, Kampfer said.

“We are trying to stay positive and put forth community effort,” he said. At a press conference held at 4:30 on Thursday afternoon, Kampfer said, "My continuing hope and prayers are that they find and return Hailey to Colorado City" in good condition. He also stated that the search for Dunn has been and is "a community effort at the grassroots level."

Today the task force command post moved from the county courthouse to the CC Thompson Building on 2nd Street. Six different agencies are currently involved in the search: D.S., Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office, Colorado City Police Department, District Attorney’s office, Texas Rangers and the FBI.

Contrary to other reports, the Texas Rangers were brought in on the day after Hailey disappeared, according to Kampfer.

“Other local agencies in Snyder, Scurry and Nolan Counties are also involved in the search,” he said.
Kampfer does not know the results of the TDCJ searches, nor does he know the results of the search warrant served at Hailey’s Chestnut Street residence.

Lamar sign and billboard company will donate digital and print signs along I-20 in both east and west directions.

The official reward being offered for Hailey’s safe return is $15,000.  “That’s cash in hand with more contributions coming in up to $25,000,” Kampfer said.

“We will be taking on additional reserve or part-time officers to beef up the current law enforcement effort,” Kampfer said, who is also working with national, regional and local media.

“There has been a lot of misinformation. I’m asked lots of questions. Lots of time I don’t know the answer,” he said.

“What I’m trying to do is what everyone would like to have, trying to give out as much information as I can get out of the task force to fill in the blanks,” Kampfer said.

Sensationalized issues over Amber Alert and blame on the city upset Kampfer.  “We’ve done everything we can to issue an Amber Alert. There’s no failure on our behalf.”  The city’s request for issuing an Amber Alert was repeatedly turned down by the state because the prerequisites of a description of a captor or captor’s vehicle was not met.

Kampfer also clarified the reports about dogs tracking Hailey to the Western Suites motel.

“The dogs did not trail Hailey’s scent to the motels,” He said. “They took the dogs to different places trying to pick up the scent.  Motels are good places to start. The dogs did get a hit.”

Kampfer went on to explain that  investigators cannot determine when a trail has been made.
Hailey could have been there a couple of days before and the dogs would still have picked up her scent or someone else wearing an article of Hailey’s clothing would have the same results.

“Bloodhounds are scent specific,” Warden Matt Kennolly said. “The only thing we need is a scent article for the person we’re looking for. The dog will track only that scent.”

“Our dogs can run 48-72 hours, but I have seen scent dogs up to 7-8 days. There are so many environmental factors that come into play,” Kennelly said.

No possible lead has been overlooked as investigators have checked almost every surveillance camera in town, according to Kampfer. “It’s amazing what they have checked.  They’ve done a good job.”

Since the first day the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has been treated as a missing person.

“There’s no indication one way or the other that she’s still not in Colorado City or Mitchell County,” Kampfer said.

I seems mom kept very loose reins on Hailey. She probably didn't call Mary Beth's house because she didn't even know them, and probably didn't have her phone number. I wonder if she even knew where Mary Beth lived.

Elite Search Group Closely Watching Hailey Dunn Case

Members of the elite Texas Equusearch recovery team tell bigcountryhomepage.com they're aware of and watching the case involving missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.

TES has been involved in some of the most high profile missing persons cases including that of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway.

Most recently, the group helped located the body of Houston-area 12-year-old Jonathan Foster after he was allegedly abducted.

TES members tell us they've been following Dunn's case but have not been contacted by law enforcement. The group says it gets involved in a case when it's asked to do so by law enforcement or the family of the missing person.

When asked whether they'd be willing to help search for Dunn if contacted by the authorities, bigcountryhomepage.com was told "we'd sure try."

TES is known for being able to deploy on short notice resources such as radar, sonar, scuba diving or SAR dog teams, and vehicles ranging from all-terrain vehicles to boats to aircraft to remotely operated vehicles.

Texas Equusearch is a non-profit group that operates on donations. The services of TES don't cost taxpayers or law enforcement agencies.

The thing that bothers me is that this child gave all this personal information on a web site that was not set to private. That is just asking for bad things to happen. Why was nobody keeping track of her on line activities.

Perhaps the parents were never married and that's why there was no divorce.

If she didn't like the live-in boyfriend, maybe Hailey had a reason to run away. But I don't think she did. The one thing that has bothered me is how close she was to the interstate. Some truck drivers would be more than willing to pick up a young girl hitch hiking out on the road, and no telling where she might be.

I also noticed that if you move the curser over Haileys picture that it gives her profile information and it says that she is 17...I know a lot of kids do that now days but I prefer that they just put 100 years old and somewhere usa for the information....JMO

I agree with you sadly.....of course it could be she feels guilty but the fact she had never met MB's mother and was ok with Hailey spending the night there is odd to me, but so is the fact that her MS is wide open and some of those post I'd ground my children for, some were sweet but is that type gibberish im wid cuz normal???

Answering myself, the truck stop would not be close. It looks like it is either east or west of town.

If you go to the site October gave you can read the charges (PDF) She apparently worked for 1 yr without renewing her license as an LVN and didn't show for her hearing or pay the costs of $ 1,200.00 so her license was revoked.

Internet Helps Spread News of Missing Girl (with video)

From a web site set up by friends and loved ones asking the world to help find Hailey Dunn.

"They're really good friends, awesome," Hailey's Aunt, Melinda Salazar, said.

To a local radio station's web site everyone is asking "Where is Hailey Dunn?"

National headliner Nancy Grace asked thousands of her viewers to look out for the teen first on television and now thousands more can view her story on CNN's Web site.

On Facebook, people are reaching out to Hailey's family.

"I've got 150 to 200 people that have added me in the last few week," Salazar said. "I'm posting everything I can find on Facebook, they're posting it. We're calling, sending text messages. Everything we can think of."

More than 7,000 people are following the Find Hailey Dunn Facebook page, and NewsWest9.com has seen more than 5,000 hits on the first story we posted on our website.

So since she went missing over a week ago, thousands, maybe millions have seen her story and her family hopes the word will keep spreading.

"We're not stopping until she's home," Salazar said. "We're not stopping we want her home."

To continue to follow this case and to learn more about Hailey Dunn you can visit the NewsWest 9 Facebook and YouTube pages. We're posting all our coverage on both of those sites

Search intensifies for missing Colorado City teen

    * Hannah Boen / Reporter-News Staff
    * Abilene Reporter-News
    * Posted January 6, 2011 at 12:39 p.m., updated January 6, 2011 at 10:38 p.m.

http://www.reporternews.com/news/2011/jan/06/helicopter-being-used-search-missing-colorado-city/?partner=popular   (http://www.reporternews.com/news/2011/jan/06/helicopter-being-used-search-missing-colorado-city/?partner=popular)

COLORADO CITY — Law enforcement officials continued Thursday to chase leads from evidence collected Wednesday from missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn’s home.

A helicopter search for the 13-year-old middle school student who has been missing for 10 days started about noon Thursday.

About 4 p.m., the helicopter landed in a field of brush near 21st Street, west of the Dunn home. Authorities spent time searching the wooded area south of Interstate 20.
Earlier Thursday, Pete Kampfer, city manager and spokesman for the Colorado City Police Department, said the air search came after authorities discontinued a foot search for Dunn along the Colorado River on Wednesday.

Dunn apparently was last seen by her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, who said she told him she was going to a friend’s house. The friend said she wasn’t aware of any such plans.

Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey’s mother, told TV personality Nancy Grace on Thursday night that she and her boyfriend had taken polygraph tests Wednesday. She said she was told before taking her test that Adkins had failed his test. She said she also failed her test.

Later, she asked Adkins to move out and said she has not spoken with him since. He was not at the Dunn home Thursday morning.

Kampfer said the investigation was progressing.

“They’ve intensified the search since yesterday. They’ve confirmed some leads and are going with them today,” he said of investigators.

Kampfer confirmed that evidence was taken from Billie Jean Dunn’s home Wednesday that may have led to leads being pursued Thursday. Although he wouldn’t say what items had been taken, he said the FBI — in similar cases — typically obtains soil samples and searches for pornography, drug paraphernalia, bleach, gloves and shovels.

Billie Jean Dunn was presented with a list of the items that were taken from the home and an outdoor storage shed, Kampfer said.

At 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Billie Jean Dunn was inside her home with her brother Dale and Hailey’s 16-year-old brother, David.

On Grace’s show on HLN Thursday, Billie Jean Dunn said Colorado City police initially searched her home the day after Hailey was reported missing. Texas Rangers searched the home again Wednesday.

Also on the program, the accuracy of the polygraphs was brought into question after Billie Jean Dunn confirmed that she and Adkins were on medication that may have skewed the results.

Grace expressed concern that Billie Jean Dunns’ knowledge of Adkins’ failure before her test interfered with accuracy.

Kampfer said he couldn’t confirm information regarding polygraph tests.

“Sometimes just the idea of getting a polygraph adds to the situation,” he said, referring to the general process of the polygraph test. “What you’re looking for is a confession.”

Billie Jean said on the program that she met Adkins on MySpace not long after she had separated from her husband, Clint Dunn. When Adkins moved in, she said, Hailey did not care for him. However, she said her daughter became more comfortable around Adkins.

David Dunn, Haley’s brother, said Thursday he did not know Adkins well.

Clint Dunn said running away would be out of character for his daughter.

“She’s not a runaway, she’s never said those words in her life. She’s 13. She’s a little kid,” he said. “She’s not like a lot of 13-year-olds wearing makeup and that stuff. She acts like a little kid.”

Clint said Hailey was happy at home and never had any reason to want to leave.

According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said Thursday that Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey never had been to the Garcia home to spend the night. Mary Beth had spent the night at Hailey Dunn’s home once. :-?

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared earlier on Grace’s program to discuss her daughter’s disappearance.

Meanwhile, Lamar Advertising placed Hailey Dunn’s photo and information on several billboards along Interstate 20 between Abilene and Odessa.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s website, Hailey Darlene Dunn was last seen wearing navy sweatpants, a short-sleeve, light-colored T-shirt, flip-flops and red hoop earrings. Her left upper ear is pierced.

Kampfer said a collection of agents from the FBI, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Texas Rangers have joined local law enforcement officials to investigate Dunn’s disappearance.

Kampfer said the city has received an average of 30 phone calls per day on the tip line since the teen’s disappearance. He could not confirm if any of the tips were used by law enforcement to uncover information in the case.

DPS Senior Trooper Sparky Dean said helicopters will remain on call in Lubbock and Midland to assist with the investigation.

Dean said law enforcement’s plan for Thursday evening was simply to continue to work as diligently as officials have for the past 10 days.

“We’ve got 30 officers beating the streets and following leads,” he said.

In addition, he said, officials in Austin and Dallas are following leads online.

According to the missing and exploited children website, Hailey is one of 111 children who have been reported missing in Texas during the past 10 years.

Robert Lowery, executive director of missing children’s division for the organization, said the nonprofit has aided the search by distributing posters with Hailey’s photo and information to a 75-mile radius of Colorado City.

The community remains hopeful that organizations such as the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will help draw attention to the case and lead to Hailey Dunn being found alive.

Crystal White waits tables at the Hamburger Shoppe. The mother of five said she wanted to raise her kids in Colorado City because she was confident it was a safe place.

“It’s just hard to see it happen in the community you were raised in,” she said. “What must these kids be feeling, thinking. You just don’t want them to be scared, but they are.”

White said the anxiety only grows as time passes without Hailey being found.

“My daughter was scared to walk to school this morning, and I mean we only live down the street,” she said. “I’ve never watched her walk to school, but I did this morning.”

It is strange to have 2 licenses with the same name. Billie is 33 according to her My Space. The valid license has been in place for 33 years. There must be 2 Billie Dunns that work as LVNs? Perhaps it is this name overlap that allows her to work without a valid license. Or maybe she is working as a nursing assistant instead of an LVN. I have no idea.

I am guessing that Billie did not renew her license and when she realized it, she did not have the $1200 to get it reinstated? that would be a shame if that was the case cause she could make a pretty good living on a nurse's wage..I would venture to guess that she is working as a CNA or something like that...
She is sweet and I feel brutally honest with her answers...She really is not trying to make excuses for herself as far as not calling to check on Hailey's whereabouts the night she went missing..She said that she wished that she had now...I really feel sorry for her. a lot of guilt and regrets on her part I would think. the pain of her child missing must be immense..I feel that this mother is very child like in her own way.

Police to focus on woods, river in search for missing teen
January 7, 2011

New York (CNN) -- Investigators and rescue teams will continue their search Friday for a missing 13-year-old Texas girl, focusing near a densely-wooded area and along the Colorado River.

Meanwhile, Hailey Dunn's mother, Billie Dunn, told HLN's Nancy Grace that she and her live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, both failed polygraph exams.

Adkins was the last person to see the eighth-grade cheerleader on December 27 at Dunn's home in Colorado City, according to local reports.

Colorado City -- a rural central Texas town -- is about 70 miles west of Abilene, Texas.

Hailey reportedly told Adkins she was going to visit her father and then a friend. Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, says she often came to his home, but did not on that day.

Dunn said she took the polygraph test after she was informed that Adkins had failed.

Woodrow Tripp, a polygraph expert, told Nancy Grace that troubles him.

''That absolutely would cause major problems emotionally as she's administered one. You want to try to minimize that as much as possible.''

Dunn did not say who administered the exam during which she says she was asked if she knew anything about or caused Hailey's disappearance and whether she feared any questions.

The night Hailey vanished, Dunn says she thought her daughter was sleeping over at a friend's house.

Asked why she did not confirm Hailey's location before going to bed that night, Dunn said, ''I just don't have an answer for that. I wish I would have called to tell her goodnight.''

Dunn says police questioned her for more than 10 hours on Wednesday.

She met Adkins on the MySpace social networking site more than two years ago and he moved in with her several months ago.

Initially, police considered Hailey a runaway but the case is now a missing person. However, a Texas Amber Alert has not been issued, reportedly because no one saw Hailey being abducted.

Hailey is 5'1, 120 pounds, has hazel eyes, and brown hair with blond streaks.

When she disappeared, she was wearing navy blue sweat pants, a light-colored short sleeve T-shirt, and pink and white tennis shoes.

Perhaps the parents were never married and that's why there was no divorce.
The thing that bothers me is that this child gave all this personal information on a web site that was not set to private. That is just asking for bad things to happen. Why was nobody keeping track of her on line activities.

Hi!
Billie said on NG (her first appearance) that there was no computer in the home.

Meaning of Failed Polygraphs in Hailey Dunn Case (with video)

They asked if I knew anything about the disappearance of Hailey," said Billie Dunn, the mother of the missing Colorado City teen, on her second appearance on "Nancy Grace."

There she was asked about the polygraph test that she and boyfriend, Shawn Adkins took.

"He took his, I went in, they told me he failed it, I lost it," said Hailey.

She went on to say, "They took me to the courthouse, I took the polygraph test, I failed it."

So what does this mean when both people closely connected to Hailey fail the test?

"If there is a failure or a deception indicated, generally speaking it would indicate the person quite possibly could have some knowledge or involvement in the disappearance of the person," explained Mike Gougler, a polygraph expert

Gougler is not directly involved with this search, and could not speak about the case specifically, but in his experience he says these type of tests can really aid in the investigation.

"When they start running polygraphs early on, they're trying to eliminate people so they can focus their efforts on the most important factor, and that's the safe recovery of the individual that has disappeared."

Gougler says everyone who takes a polygraph is typically told afterwards if they passed or failed, so that's not unusual, but it's unknown if Billie Dunn's claim to know the results of her boyfriend's test will have any impact on this investigation.

Hailey Dunn's Mom Says She, Boyfriend Failed Polygraphs  (with video)

The disappearance of Colorado City 13-year-old Hailey Dunn once again took center stage on HLN's "Nancy Grace" show Thursday evening.
Among the guests were Billie and Clint Dunn, separated parents of Hailey Dunn, and KTAB's Priscilla Luong.

According to Billie Dunn, she was questioned for 10-12 hours on Wednesday night after admittedly failing a polygraph test. Dunn explained the details of the polygraph testing on Thursday night's "Nancy Grace" broadcast.

Dunn also said that her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, also failed his polygraph test. Since then, Adkins has left Colorado City and is now staying with his grandmother in West Texas. Dunn said she asked Adkins not to come back.

KTAB's Priscilla Luong was told earlier in the day by her sources that Dunn and Adkins failed their polygraphs.

Dunn said investigators asked her if she had caused Hailey's disappearance, and if she was afraid of answering their questions.

Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, has not taken a polygraph yet, and is not scheduled to take one at this time. He says he has volunteered to take a test.

The last portion of the interview centered around Billie Dunn's current boyfriend.

Billie told Nancy Grace she dated Shawn Adkins for two and a half years before they decided to move in together. They were living together for four months before Hailey disappeared.

According to Billie, she met Adkins on Myspace and met him in person about a month later. Hailey was not present when they first met.

Dunn told Nancy Grace that Hailey and Shawn did not get along when they first met, but that their relationship had been improving. Hailey's grandmother, Connie Jones, told KCBD this week that Hailey and Shawn did not have a good relationship.

According to Nancy Grace producers, the show may feature this case again on Monday evening.

Additional searchers brought in

By Staff
Posted January 7, 2011 - 9:26am

Additional searchers were brought in Thursday evening to canvass neighborhoods near Hailey Dunn's home, according to Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs early Friday morning.

Members of the task force, as well as additional searchers, will re-canvass the neighborhoods on January 7, knocking on doors and re-interviewing people.

There were no results following a helicopter search Thursday of the north eastern part of Colorado City, an area bordered by I-20, Hickory and 17th Streets.

Rumors that Hailey's body was found behind a local store are unfounded.

Nine agencies are currently working on the disappearance of 13-year-old Dunn, including the Secret Service and Child Advisory Center.

Polygraphs unconfirmed

Posted January 7, 2011 - 11:29am

In a press conference this morning, City Manager Pete Kampfer stated that polygraphs results were unconfirmed.

"It is my understanding that they (task force) did not advise whether a person passed or failed," Kampfer said.

Kampfer further stated that  not informing interviewees of the results of their polygraph tests is standard law enforcement procedure and to his knowledge, none of the people involved  had been informed of the results.

DPS Trooper Sparky Dean said three DPS operators and one FBI operator had administered polygraphs. "Information between parties is not even announced on who took the test or who did not," he said. "Even they don't have knowledge of who passed or failed."

Rumors that the investigation has narrowed to persons of interest are also unfounded.

"The investigation has narrowed to the neighborhoods and vicinity of Billie Jean Dunn's home," Kampfer said.

No arrests have been made and all witnesses who have come in for questioning did so voluntarily and were released afterward, according to Dean.

Residents Asked To Join Search For Hailey Dunn In Colorado City

By George Levesque, KTXS News Director
POSTED: 9:51 am CST January 7, 2011
UPDATED: 10:07 am CST January 7, 2011

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Residents in Colorado City are being asked to join the search for missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

According to a local radio station, residents are being asked to gather at the Mitchell County Courthouse in Colorado City at 2 p.m. to create search parties.

The residents would join the efforts of 12 law enforcement and missing child agencies, including the FBI, that have combined efforts to work on the case of the missing Colorado Middle School student.

Hailey, 13, has been missing since Dec. 27.

Since the story was first reported on Dec. 29 by KTXS, the case almost daily has received increasing attention – from law enforcement agencies and the media, including two broadcasts on the HLN Network’s “Nancy Grace Show.”

Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, said Thursday night that both she and her live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had failed polygraph tests.

Adkins failed the test first, she said. Then after being told about Adkin’s failure, Billie Dunn said she failed the test also. Both said they had taken medication that may have affected the test results.

Extended family members have made unconfirmed and conflicting statements that other family members have also failed polygraph tests related to the case.

Billie Dunn said she asked Adkins to leave her home because she "didn't know what to think anymore." According to Billie Dunn, Adkins was now staying with his grandmother.

Search helicopters from the Texas Department of Public Safety and billboards along Interstate 20 donated by Lamar Advertising are being used to raise awareness.

Search officials used helicopters, horses and dogs – and even state prison inmates – to search creek beds in Colorado City and the perimeter of the city Wednesday and Thursday.

Hailey was last seen on Dec. 27 when she reportedly told Adkins that she was spending the night with a friend.

However, she never made it to the friend’s house, and the friend has said she didn’t know Hailey was coming – that they hadn’t made plans for her to spend the night.

No statewide Amber Alert has been issued because the case has not met the criteria for issuing such an alert.

State officials have three times refused to issue the Amber Alert, Colorado City officials say, because there is no physical evidence to show that Hailey has been abducted or that she is facing physical harm.

IMO everyone local from Kampfer to Trooper Sparky are totally out of their skillset here and really are only doing reactive damage control.  They have never had to deal with a missing child nor the national media.  They need to hand this over to an agency with experience and call in TES.

NANCY GRACE, HOST: ... Billie Dunn, thanks for being with us. What happened in the polygraph?

BILLIE DUNN: .... The first Friday they had it set up for us to take, we had taken Ativan the night before to go to sleep. They didn`t tell us we couldn`t have anxiety medicine. So when we were able to get it set up again -- Shawn had actually called them and asked them if he could come down and take it yet, and they said yes. They came, picked him up. He took his. I went in. They told me he failed it. I lost it, of course. Then they took me over to the courthouse. I took a polygraph test. I failed it.

<snipped>

GRACE: Let me ask you this, Billie Dunn. Where is your boyfriend?

BILLIE DUNN: He went back to his grandma`s house.

GRACE: Why?

BILLIE DUNN: As soon as I found out he failed the test, I told him I didn`t want him back at my house. And now I don`t know what to think anymore. I would just rather he stay there until she comes home or they find her and we clear this up.

Moss Lake in Howard County is 33 miles away to the west on I- 20.

"The investigation has narrowed to the neighborhoods and vicinity of Billie Jean Dunn's home," Kampfer said.

Moss Lake is not in the vicinity of Billie's house.  This gets more and more confusing.

If Hailey's friends haven't come forth with any information about her, I feel things are not looking good. She is of the age that would share her feelings and her associations with her friends. This really sounds way, way bad for the outcome.  ::MonkeyNoNo::

Which of these two articles is the truth?  I'm going with "Polygraphs Unconfirmed".  JMHO The reason is, someone in LE or whatever may have let Billie Dunn think either she or her boyfriend were deceptive in order to play one against the other and etc.  They can do that.

Could it be that Billie was informed that Shawn and her both failed the polygraphs but proper protocol was not followed in the revealing of the results?  Could it be that City Manager Pete Kampfer is attempting damage control?

I cannot comprehend what Billie's motive for lying.

Texas teen Hailey Dunn still missing

Texas teen Hailey Dunn still missing
Published 01/07/2011 - 11:38 a.m. CST 
TheRecordLive

Colorado City-  Texas law enforcement agencies, the Texas Rangers and the FBI are searching for clues in the case of a 13-year-old Colorado City Middle School cheerleader who has been missing since December 27.

Hailey Darlene Dunn was reported missing by her mother after she failed to return home the day after she was supposed to spend the night at a friend’s house.

Residents of Colorada City are being asked to gather at the Mitchell County Courthouse in at 2 p.m. on Friday to create search parties. The residents would join the efforts of 12 law enforcement and missing child agencies that have combined efforts to work on the case of the missing teen.

Her mother, Billie Dunn, thought she was spending the night at a friend’s home during the Christmas holiday break, but she did not return home the next day.

Hailey is 5’1, 120 pounds, has hazel eyes, and brown hair with blond streaks.

When she disappeared, she was wearing navy blue sweat pants, a light-colored short sleeve T-shirt, and pink and white tennis shoes.

Although her disappearance is suspicious, it does not meet the requirement to issue an Amber Alert in Texas, police said.

The Texas Rangers and Colorado City police have searched Hailey’s home and surrounding areas. According to CBS affiliate KOSA, rangers were seen carrying garbage bags from her house into their squad cars.

Authorities are also searching the phone records of Hailey’s mother and her mother’s boyfriend, Shawn Adkins. Both had failed polygraph tests on Thursday.

FRIDAY UPDATE 11:00AM Hailey's Mother Admits to Failing Polygraph 1/7/11  (with video)

UPDATE - FRIDAY 11:00am

Colorado City, Texas -

On the tenth day since 13 year old Colorado City teen, Hailey Dunn went missing, her mother admitted that both she and her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins failed polygraph tests.

Before a national audience on the Nancy Grace Show Dunn said she and Shawn did not pass lie detector tests administered to them on Wednesday.

She said Shawn refused two tests before taking a third that he failed.

Billie Dunn says she was told that Shawn failed and then immediately given one herself that she failed.

Dunn told Grace that after Shawn failed, she questioned him and told him to leave.

Adkins said he was going to Dunn, Texas to stay with relatives.

Despite at least two failed polygraph tests and the absence of Shawn Adkins, authorities have still not officially named any suspects.

Beau Berman: "How is he (Adkins) not a suspect?"

City Manager Pete Kampfer: "Well that's a good question and he may be."


Bille Dunn says she was questioned for 10 straight hours on Wednesday after Shawn failed his polygraph and the Texas Rangers searched her Chestnut street home.

The FBI, Texas Rangers and Department of Public Safety helicopters are all investigating now.

But their efforts didn't begin until a week after Hailey first went missing.

Beau Berman: "Why weren't those things happening a week ago?"

DPS Trooper Sparky Dean: "I think as this progresses, you know, obviously the local folks hoped that Hailey would be at somebody's house".


Thursday night experts on the Nancy Grace Show were highly critical of the Colorado City Police Department's response.

Initially, the police chief classified Hailey as a "runaway" when she disappeared December 27th.

The spokesperson for the Police Department and Colorado City, Pete Kampfer, is in turn upset that the state has refused to issue an Amber Alert despite at least three requests from the city.

Beau Berman: "How frustrating is that?"

Kampfer: "It's really frustrating. Again, we have limited resources and impact. We're a remote town in west Texas."

DPS helicopter surveillance did not appear to uncover any new leads Thursday as it combed Colorado City by air.

But several rumors surfaced Thursday afternoon, one claiming that Hailey was found behind the ALCO store in town.

While the hearts of the more than 4000 Colorado City residents were hoping they were true, the rumors proved false.

For Billie, the entire ordeal is a nightmare.

"We've got to have her back. We can't live without her. She's my baby", says Dunn.

While Hailey hasn't been found alive, authorities say they're happy she hasn't been found dead.

A bright spot is that the Lamar sign company is posting Hailey's photo and details of her disappearance on electronic billboards across Interstate 20 and across the state.

The electronic billboard on highway 191 between Midland and Odessa is also reportedly part of the initiative.

At this point Colorado City residents and the rest of the nation are hoping for a few more good signs.

"We talk about how much the law enforcement is involved, but hey, you've got John Doe citizen up and down the roadways in every direction you point that are out there just as much as we are looking and helping to find her so it's going to happen, Hailey's going to be returned", says Trooper Dean.

Update: Search Parties Will Go House-To-House In Colorado City

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Search parties will be going house-to-house knocking on doors across the northern side of Colorado City Friday afternoon.

The searchers will be canvassing the entire area surrounding Hailey Dunn's northside home, starting at the city limits and sweeping through neighborhoods, asking questions of residents and searching for any information about missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

Residents in Colorado City are being asked to join the search. Volunteers are being asked to gather at the Mitchell County Courthouse in Colorado City at 2 p.m. to create search parties to conduct the search across the northern portions of the city.

The volunteers will join the efforts of 12 law enforcement and missing child agencies, including the FBI, that have combined efforts to work on the case of the missing Colorado Middle School student.

Hailey, 13, has been missing since Dec. 27.

Since the story was first reported on Dec. 29 by KTXS, the case almost daily has received increasing attention – from law enforcement agencies and the media, including two broadcasts on the HLN Network’s “Nancy Grace Show.”

Hailey’s mother, Billie Dunn, said Thursday night that both she and her live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had failed polygraph tests.

Adkins failed the test first, she said. Then after being told about Adkin’s failure, Billie Dunn said she failed the test also. Both said they had taken medication that may have affected the test results.

Extended family members have made unconfirmed and conflicting statements that other family members have also failed polygraph tests related to the case.

Billie Dunn said she asked Adkins to leave her home because she "didn't know what to think anymore." According to Billie Dunn, Adkins was now staying with his grandmother.

UPDATE: Law enforcement going door-to-door in probe of missing Colorado City teen


COLORADO CITY -- Law enforcement officials in Colorado City are back on foot today.

Wednesday, officials discontinued a foot search for missing Colorado City middle school student Hailey Dunn to conduct a helicopter search Thursday.

Today, City Manager Pete Kampfer said, officers are back on the street to conduct door-to-door interviews. Plain-clothed officers dispatched from a temporary command center this morning to canvass the town in search of clues. Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper Sparky Dean said officers will be going door-to-door in the northern part of Colorado City and will be looking for physical evidence and general information.

"We're hoping they'll be voluntary in nature," Kampfer said of community members.

Officers have been told to look specifically for the missing teen, Dean said, adding authorities aren't interested in learning of any illegal activities unrelated to Hailey Dunn's disappearance.

"Part of finding Hailey is finding out where she is not," Dean said.

Dean said officials are asking those questioned in homes if they know anything about Hailey Dunn.

Meanwhile, A grassroots effort has been started by community members to search for Hailey Dunn. The group is scheduled to meet at the Mitchell County Courthouse at 2 p.m. today.

Hailey Darlene Dunn, 13, was last seen by her mother’s live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, on Dec. 27. Shawn reported he was told by Hailey around 3:15 p.m. that she would be walking to her dad’s house then spending the night with a friend, Mary Beth Garcia. Hailey’s father Clint Dunn said she never visited him that day and that Mary Beth's mother, Cecilia Garcia, said she never knew of Hailey's plans to spend the night.

As of Thursday afternoon, nine agencies were working in Colorado City on the case, including the FBI, Texas Department of Public Safety, the Child Advisory Center and secret service.

Hailey’s parents appeared on Nancy Grace last night and gave a statement to media at their home immediately following the show.

Clint Dunn said at that time he was in the dark concerning further investigation.

Billie Jean Dunn said during the TV show that she and Shawn had failed polygraph tests given to them by law enforcement on Wednesday.

Kampfer said today it is the policy of federal and state officials to not provide feedback of the passing or failing of polygraph tests. He said the two were polygraphed but they weren't advised but they weren't advised as to whether they passed or failed.

Billie Jean Dunn said she had put all her hope in the polygraphs clearing her and Shawn’s names. That confidence, she said, is now lost.

“There's no way that I would ever protect anybody,” she said. “If I thought he had anything to do with it, I would have came forward a long time ago.”

When Billie Jenn Dunn heard the test results, she said, she began to lose hope that Hailey would ever come home.

“One way or another,” she said, “somebody took her, somebody snatched her off the street. At this point it's 10 days later, and I don't have a good feeling at all.”

Update: Search Parties Will Go House-To-House In Colorado City

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Search parties will be going house-to-house knocking on doors across the northern side of Colorado City Friday afternoon.

The searchers will be canvassing the entire area surrounding Hailey Dunn's northside home, starting at the city limits and sweeping through neighborhoods, asking questions of residents and searching for any information about missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

Residents in Colorado City are being asked to join the search. Volunteers are being asked to gather at the Mitchell County Courthouse in Colorado City at 2 p.m. to create search parties to conduct the search across the northern portions of the city.

City Manager Pete Kampfer, remaining hopeful, said, "We're positive and encouraged we can find her in good order."

The volunteers will join the efforts of 12 law enforcement and missing child agencies, including the FBI, that have combined efforts to work on the case of the missing Colorado Middle School student.

Kampfer said Friday that there are now 30 law enforcement personnel working the case on the ground in Colorado City.

Hailey, 13, has been missing since Dec. 27.

Polygraphs unconfirmed

By Staff
Posted January 7, 2011 - 11:29am

In a press conference this morning, City Manager Pete Kampfer stated that polygraphs results were unconfirmed.

"It is my understanding that they (task force) did not advise whether a person passed or failed," Kampfer said.

Kampfer further stated that  not informing interviewees of the results of their polygraph tests is standard law enforcement procedure and to his knowledge, none of the people involved  had been informed of the results.

DPS Trooper Sparky Dean said three DPS operators and one FBI operator had administered polygraphs. "Information between parties is not even announced on who took the test or who did not," he said. "Even they don't have knowledge of who passed or failed."

Rumors that the investigation has narrowed to persons of interest are also unfounded.

"The investigation has narrowed to the neighborhoods and vicinity of Billie Jean Dunn's home," Kampfer said.

No arrests have been made and all witnesses who have come in for questioning did so voluntarily and were released afterward, according to Dean.

Could it be that Billie was informed that Shawn and her both failed the polygraphs but proper protocol was not followed in the revealing of the results?  Could it be that City Manager Pete Kampfer is attempting damage control?

I cannot comprehend what would be Billie's motive for lying.

NANCY GRACE, HOST: ... Billie Dunn, thanks for being with us. What happened in the polygraph?

BILLIE DUNN: .... The first Friday they had it set up for us to take, we had taken Ativan the night before to go to sleep. They didn`t tell us we couldn`t have anxiety medicine. So when we were able to get it set up again -- Shawn had actually called them and asked them if he could come down and take it yet, and they said yes. They came, picked him up. He took his. I went in. They told me he failed it. I lost it, of course. Then they took me over to the courthouse. I took a polygraph test. I failed it.

<snipped>

GRACE: Let me ask you this, Billie Dunn. Where is your boyfriend?

BILLIE DUNN: He went back to his grandma`s house.

GRACE: Why?

BILLIE DUNN: As soon as I found out he failed the test, I told him I didn`t want him back at my house. And now I don`t know what to think anymore. I would just rather he stay there until she comes home or they find her and we clear this up.

http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1101/06/ng.01.html
 


Immediately following the polygraph ... Billie Dunn was subjected to a 10 hour interrogation by investigators.  I am inclined to believe that Billie is revealing the truth when she claims she was informed she had failed the polygraph.

Anyways ... the truth will be revealed as the investigation proceeds.

I'm following this case but havent commented until now.

This mother's priorities are skewed, no mother in their right head would be more focused discussing a "reportedly" failed poly over finding out what happened to their reported missing child.  Last night's NG episode had me concerned & bewildered at its obsession over the lie detector tests, this time I think NG is putting too much faith in this mother being totally innocent with whatever happened to Hailey.   In other words, to me the mother's focus without belligerence or diversion, finding Hailey would be first and foremost at all times despite the questions geared away from that aim.   Why is she so heck bent on talking about not having faith in lie detectors as opposed to "please I beg of you help me find my child" and/or "there is a good chance my boyfriend did something & if so please find the evidence that proves it."   One could conclude that if she had faith in her boyfriend that he couldnt have done anything to harm her daughter she wouldnt have kicked him out & defended him because at a time like this you would think she'd need him as a support system right now, nope something is up with that.    I also have my doubts she was told flat out that her boyfriend failed the poly, not that it couldnt have happened but it remains to be seen that is what took place other than her word (remember Misty Cummings).  The only reason I see law enforcement telling her is if they were already on to something & pinning her against the boyfriend vice versus.

Something tells me that Hailey never went to go to her father's & got sidetracked or anywhere for that matter, the dog hit could have been from previous trips to her dad's.   I just do not sense that this is a stranger abduction or a runaway situation, I cant even say I hope Im wrong because no matter the outcome its pretty obvious there has been harm done to Hailey, it is just a question as to by whom & to what severity. 

I do not like that the boyfriend was laid off & the entire dynamic tells me there were elements present that could have had him and/or the mother lashing out.   I'm sure even more will come out but with the little I've seen so far we're talking about overall mature, responsible & decent individuals here.

The mother is hiding something & its obvious by her body language & facial expressions, even if its only that she knew the boyfriend was bad news & is fully aware that she did not care for her pre-teen daughter nearly sufficient enough.   You couldnt help but ask immediately upon seeing her just how old was she when she gave birth to Hailey, bottom line this sounds like another tragic case of immaturity & elicit lives risking the welfare of a minor willingly.   I am sure there are things I have to catch up on & I will but for now that is my gut reaction to this case.

Residents Forming Search Parties to Locate Missing Colorado City Teen Hailey Dunn 1/7/11

Colorado City residents are now being asked to aid more formally in the search for missing 13 year old Hailey Dunn by forming search parties Friday at 2:00pm.

Residents are meeting at the Mitchell County Courthouse to conduct a city-wide search.

Some indicate they may be walking the ten miles north to Dunn, Texas for the sake of thoroughness.

City Manager Pete Kampfer says that more than 30 law enforcement personnel are working in search parties of two, going door to door.

The city is asking the public to cooperate as they go door to door and ask for entrance.

Authorities are looking in the closets of Colorado City homes for Hailey.

The hope is that she may have been hiding or is being kept there and will turn up today.

Authorities are also searching along the Colorado River and within wooded areas surrounding town.

If you would like to join the search at 2:00pm you are asked to bring a cell phone, a water bottle and to dress in warm clothes.

 ::MonkeyShocked:: Ditto....sometimes I wonder WTH they are smoking! Also, I have read so many stmts from David, and isn't he the brother that is only 16? If so, why is he the family spokesperson as I still feel at 16 and a minor he should be sheilded, it worries me. Also, why does the brother of Hailey and Billie's son along with his uncle have a different spin on the polygraph info than Billie reported. IIRC, they stated he walked out, and she stated the first one couldn't be taken since he had taken ativan so which one is it.........can't be both?

The Hailey Dunn Story: Conflicting Assertions Abound

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The reporting of rumor, innuendo and misrepresentation seems to be a part – sadly – of the unfolding story surrounding missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

Despite statements to the contrary by people involved, Sparky Dean, senior trooper of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told KTXS on Friday that no one has been told whether they have passed or failed a polygraph test.

This comes despite the statement made on national television by Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother, that she and her former live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had both failed polygraph tests. She made this statement on live television Thursday night on HLN's "Nancy Grace."

Told of Dean's statement that no results of passing or failure were pronounced, Billie Dunn twice reasserted her position: She was told there was "deception indicated."

The misunderstanding of what did and did not occur stands as an example of the enormous challenges of news reporting in the middle of an ongoing investigation, during which assumptions and misunderstandings exist – and are sometimes reported to the public.

Furthermore, KTXS has learned over the past several days, that other family members have made various conflicting and unconfirmed claims – declaring, at different times, that at least four different people have failed the polygraph tests.

Another member of the extended family added an assertion Friday morning to KTXS News that Adkins "had been cleared" of any wrong-doing.

Such assertions, assumptions and misunderstandings seem to occur in a fluid, ongoing story that is not yet complete.

Another assertion made on the "Nancy Grace Show" Thursday night stated that the Billie Dunn's home was searched on Wednesday for the first time. Officials on Friday pointed out that the home has been searched three times since Hailey's disappearance on Dec. 27.

Experts have long known that journalistic coverage of breaking news during an active investigation is a difficult assignment. Some in the news media, in a competitive environment, will rush to release scraps of information – occasionally before the facts are confirmed.

Kenneth Pybus, media law specialist and journalism faculty member at Abilene Christian University, said part of the problem comes from the tension that exists between differing roles and responsibilities of those involved.

"One of the challenges is that you have competing interests: the sources involved, the media and the law enforcement," he said. "The media are trying to quickly put out information to the public. Law enforcement is trying to find and protect evidence, see that justice is served and, sometimes, protect privacy.

"The media often frustrate law enforcement, and law enforcement often frustrates the media," he said. "And both often frustrate the sources that are involved in the incident."

Nevertheless, he said, journalists "have a responsibility to be as accurate as possible. In the end they can only report what they've been told. Sometimes they wind up repeating false information."

Spokesman: Lie Detector Results Not Released in Dunn Case

The results of Wednesday's lie detector tests on Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins weren't released in the manner described on the "Nancy Grace" show, according to Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer.
Kampfer told KTAB News' Tiffany Tatro the administrator of the polygraph test did not release results to anyone that was administered the test.

During Thursday night's "Nancy Grace" epsidoe on HLN, Dunn said she was told her boyfriend Shawn Adkins failed a polygraph test prior to receiving the test herself. Dunn says after learning the news, she failed her test.

An expert on Grace's panel said a polygraph test administrator should never do that and revealing information of that nature could cause someone to fail a test.

On Thursday evening, KRBC's Tim Johnston spoke with area polygraph expert Mike Gougler about whether revealing information about who passed or failed a test is commonplace. Gougler says everyone who takes a polygraph is typically told afterwards if they passed or failed, so that's not unusual.

Gougler is not directly involved with this search, and could not speak about the case specifically, but in his experience he says these type of tests can really aid in the investigation.

"When they start running polygraphs early on, they're trying to eliminate people so they can focus their efforts on the most important factor, and that's the safe recovery of the individual that has disappeared."

UPDATE: Searchers Hit Streets as Dunn Investigation Intensifies

Colorado City, TX—Investigators in plain clothes will go door-to-door Friday asking residents of Colorado City for any information they might have on 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, who was been missing since Dec. 27.

After a day of twists, turns, and constant developments, Friday morning started off rather quietly in the town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland.

Hailey was last seen on a Monday afternoon, having told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend.  She was reported missing 24 hours later.

Volunteers have again hit the streets to look for any signs of the missing Colorado City Middle School student.  An organized search has been setup at 2 p.m. Friday at the Mitchell County courthouse. Various groups have planned other searches, with many of those searches being organized on Facebook.

Abilene's Child Abduction Unit joined the investigation today, putting the number of assisting agencies at 10.

As of 10 a.m. Friday, Hailey's mother Billy Dunn was still resting following an intense interview on HLN's "Nancy Grace" program Thursday evening.

"It's not feeling good," she said of the chances of a happy ending.

Officials continue to tell bigcountryhomepage.com they're following "substantial leads" and the search is intensifying.
"Our leads are primarily around corroboration and information from the different people that they've interviewed and talked to," said City Manager Pete Kampfer during in interview with Lane Stone. "We're corroborating all the different information and data that they've provided."

DPS helicopters are on standby in case they're needed to flying over Colorado City for a second day. On Thursday, a chopper flew over town landing at one point. City officials tell us the landing was nothing out of the ordinary and no discoveries were made during the landing.

Part of the investigation over the next few days is expected to center around sex offenders who live around the Dunn home.  Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer says the city is aggressively tracking sex offenders to make sure they know where they're located at all times.

"We're also following up on information that they've provided us to make sure they are where they say there are," said Kampfer.

"It's not safe (here) and this makes everybody realize it," Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, said.


Students have returned to Colorado City Middle School with additional counselors on hand to talk to students about what happened.

"We are trying to give our kids a sense of normalcy so we can give the kids a little security," Tammy Johnson, one of Hailey's teachers said."

Private donations have swelled the reward money to $25,000 for information that leads to Hailey's safe return.

The City Manager Pete Kampfer is "quoted" in regards to the polygraph issue in the article that Klaas posted.

If Billie was not informed that she and her boyfriend failed the polygraph ... what could possibly be her motivation for outright lying on the Nancy Grace show?

I wonder if the LE have talked to Hailey's friends to ask them how Hailey felt about the boyfriend and if she had revealed anything to friends that he made her uncomfortable or if she was ok with him. I know that at first Mom said that Hailey did not like the boyfriend, but that Hailey and he had been getting along better lately..
Hope that TES goes to look for Hailey.
I really don't think that it is such a bad idea to go house to house and look in closets etc..Jessica Lunsford was kept in a closet and a little girl in England was hid in an apartment for about  3 weeks before she was found..Mom was in on that one though..It could be that Hailey is hiding out or that someone is holding her against her will.. other missing kids have done that before...We have to look at everything when a child goes missing..jmo..I don't think that she is hiding but never hurts to check it all out...would be a miracle if that was the case.

Search Intensifies; Officials Looking North Of Colorado City

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The search for a missing Colorado City teenager has intensified Friday afternoon, particularly on the northern areas of town.

Dozens, if not hundreds, of volunteers are combing though vacant lots, and a dozen of law enforcement officers from several departments are knocking on doors, two-by-two, interviewing residents and checking closets and any other possible hiding place for Hailey Dunn.

Law enforcement officials are focusing their search on the northern areas in Colorado City, and KTXS has learned, as far north as the community of Dunn, about 13 miles north of Colorado City. Search officials have also said they’re interested in searching an abandoned cotton gin in the area.

More than 15 billboards featuring Hailey Dunn have gone up – from Abilene to the Midland-Odessa area. Although an Amber Alert has never been officially approved or issued, the billboard space has been donated by Lamar Advertising.

Officials working the case also spent time Friday correcting misunderstandings or misinformation in case.

Sparky Dean, senior trooper in the Department of Public Safety, told KTXS on Friday that none of Hailey’s relatives has been told of any failures of polygraph tests.

This information contradicted statements made by Billie Dunn, who said that she and live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had both failed the tests. She made her statement on the HLN’s “Nancy Grace” show Thursday night.

Dunn, contacted Friday after Dean made his statement, reasserted her claim that she was told there had been “deception indicated” in the polygraph tests.

There are now 12 law enforcement and child protection agencies involved in the case, including the FBI, and 30 law enforcement officials on the ground working the case.

Hailey, an eighth-grade student at Colorado Middle School, has been missing since Dec. 27.

Mystery Deepens Around Missing Teen Cheerleader

More than a week ago, 13-year-old cheerleader Hailey Dunn vanished from central Texas without a trace.

The last person who saw her was her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Akins, who reportedly says the girl was going to her dad's house and then would spend the night at her friend's place.

Dunn never showed up at either location, according to CNN. Police also say that the friend didn't know Hailey was coming over.

People in her hometown of Colorado City, Texas – located 70 miles west of Abilene – are up in arms because an Amber Alert was never released.

Police tell the Abilene Reporter-News that their requests were denied because there was not enough information that Hailey was abducted.

Adkins has met with police and has not been named as a suspect, but there are conflicting reports about whether he took a polygraph test.

Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, told KTAB news that her boyfriend did indeed take the test, but several other family members have said he refused.

Texas Rangers and Colorado City Police have searched the home Hailey shared with her mother, brother David Dunn, and Adkins, as well as the surrounding area for clues.

According to KTAB, bloodhounds tracked Hailey's trail to a motel near her home last week. Authorities have continued to search the town's wooded areas by horseback and foot.

There is a $25,000 reward is being offered for the girl's safe return.

Anyone with information regarding Hailey's whereabouts can call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294 or 325-728-3161.

I wonder if the LE have talked to Hailey's friends to ask them how Hailey felt about the boyfriend and if she had revealed anything to friends that he made her uncomfortable or if she was ok with him. I know that at first Mom said that Hailey did not like the boyfriend, but that Hailey and he had been getting along better lately..
Hope that TES goes to look for Hailey.
I really don't think that it is such a bad idea to go house to house and look in closets etc..Jessica Lunsford was kept in a closet and a little girl in England was hid in an apartment for about  3 weeks before she was found..Mom was in on that one though..It could be that Hailey is hiding out or that someone is holding her against her will.. other missing kids have done that before...We have to look at everything when a child goes missing..jmo..I don't think that she is hiding but never hurts to check it all out...would be a miracle if that was the case.

I think that would we a smart decision to talk to her friends about what was going on in her life, how she felt about SA etc.....

Totally agree about the closets if OTHERS are searching, I guess I read it wrong and they wanted folks to search their own closet but others closet's is different and sadly Jessica was alive 3 days IIRC and alot of it in the closet ::MonkeyMad:: I still can't believe nobody else in that scum's family were arrested. Always can look forward to a miracle and pray (what a nice change that would be)....I do also consider the proximity to the highway and random abduction, it only takes a second to snatch someone.

Still handling it as a missing person case
Reporter asked Texas Ranger Captain  if they were dredging Lake Colorado.  Reply was NO we still believe Hailey is alive.
Something still fishy going on about poly tests with the conflicting reports from LE and Billie about being told of results
No one believes Hailey has been harmed.  They all feel she is out there and they need to find her.

A local citizen will lead a volunteer search party this afternoon for missing Hailey Dunn.

Stephanie Boyd will head up a group of volunteer searchers today at 2 p.m. Anyone interested in helping search for Hailey Dunn should meet at the courthouse on Oak Street at 2 p.m., Boyd said.

"We'll start at the city limits and walk down Highway 208, checking pastures and fields until we get to Dunn," she said.

Volunteers should wear jeans, boots, walking shoes or tennis shoes and flashlights.

"Bring a crow bar or pry bar for lifting heavy rocks or looking under stuff," she said.

Hailey's Mom: Not Much Has Changed

<snipped>

Colorado City, TX—Not much has changed in the search for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, her mother, Billie Dunn, said on Friday afternoon.  She spent the afternoon at home with DPS investigators being briefed on her daughter's case.

Investigators in plain clothes went go door-to-door Friday asking residents of Colorado City for any information they might have on Dunn, who was been missing since Dec. 27.

After a day of twists, turns, and constant developments, Friday morning started off rather quietly in the town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland.

Hailey was last seen on a Monday afternoon, having told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend.  She was reported missing 24 hours later.

Hundreds of volunteers have again hit the streets and woods across Michell County to look for any signs of the missing Colorado City Middle School student.  An organized search started at 2 p.m. Friday at the Mitchell County courthouse. Various groups have planned other searches, with many of those searches being organized on Facebook.

The SEX OFFENDERS should have been looked at on the FIRST DAY!! ::MonkeyMad::

<snipped

Abilene's Child Abduction Unit joined the investigation today, putting the number of assisting agencies at 10.


Officials continue to tell bigcountryhomepage.com they're following "substantial leads" and the search is intensifying.


Part of the investigation over the next few days is expected to center around sex offenders who live around the Dunn home.  Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer says the city is aggressively tracking sex offenders to make sure they know where they're located at all times.
[/u] (you think???)

"We're also following up on information that they've provided us to make sure they are where they say there are," said Kampfer.

"It's not safe (here) and this makes everybody realize it," Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, said.

IF LE has requested TES not get involved yet then I doubt that Tim will step on their toes.  Sometimes LE just wants to meet with TES first and make sure they are all on the same wave length.

Task force to bring in specialists

By Staff
Posted January 7, 2011 - 4:33pm

In a 4 p.m. press release, DPS Trooper Phillip Dean stated additional resources are being sought on an "as needed basis."

Additional agencies and officers are in Colorado City and behind the scenes in Dallas to assist.  The task force, which numbered 30 yesterday, continues to grow as officials seek specialists in certain fields.

Non uniform law enforcement teams canvassed the neighborhood around Hailey's home conducting interviews asking for assistance in locating her.

"W are asking anyone that may have information, no matter how large or small, to call the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294," Pete Kampfer, city manager said.  Those interested in up to date information can visit, www.coloradocitytexas.org

Could it that Shawn is being truthful in regards to his last contact with Hailey?  Did Hailey leave her home with the intention of visiting her father and then spending the night with Marybeth.  Has Hailey's father been questioned and ... has his home searched in the process of elimination?  Has members of Marybeth's family been questioned and ... has their home been searched in the process of elimination?

A little girl is missing.  All avenues must be investigated in the process of elimination.

Search intensifies for missing Colorado City teen
Hannah Boen / Reporter-News Staff
Updated Thursday, January 6, 2011


According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said Thursday that Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey never had been to the Garcia home to spend the night. Mary Beth had spent the night at Hailey Dunn’s home once.

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared earlier on Grace’s program to discuss her daughter’s disappearance

San Angelo woman mobilizes to help search for missing girl
By Jennifer Rios
San Angelo Standard Times

SAN ANGELO, Texas — A former Colorado City woman living in San Angelo is trying to get together a group to search for Hailey Dunn, a 13-year-old girl who went missing on the afternoon of Dec. 27.

Last seen in Colorado City, the teenager has been the object of an intensive search, with law enforcement entities and volunteers combing the area around Colorado City.

Colorado City is on Interstate 20 about 75 miles north of San Angelo.

Authorities said Dunn, who went missing the afternoon of December 27, was expected to visit her father and then spend the night with a friend. Her mother, Billie Dunn, reported her daughter missing the following day when it became clear she hadn’t made it to either location.

Melissa Jo Walker, now of San Angelo, said her plan is to car-pool to Colorado City, coordinate with the existing search team and work their way back to San Angelo, searching the areas between.

“Maybe if we could organize a group here and kind of close in on that area from this direction, who knows, maybe we could find something,” Walker said.

As someone who has searched for her own missing child, she said she feels more strongly than others might for Billie and Clint Dunn, although she doesn’t know the family personally. Her own son started running away when he was 14, she said. She remembers the first time was from a drug rehab center.

“Pain, really, is the motivator,” she said, hoping that she could help anyone avoid having to go through a similar experience. “I just remember how hard it is when your child is missing. There’s no rest, there’s no peace until you know where your child is.”

Walker said she has posted a request for volunteers on her Facebook page and the San Angelo Police Department Facebook page. So far, she only has a handful of people backing the idea.

Walker, an Angelo State University student and hairdresser at Regis Salon, said she contacted the university’s police department about sending out some sort of notice to the student body.

ASU Police Chief James Adams said he received the request and wants to get the department involved.

“We do intend to do what we can to help her,” Adams said Friday afternoon.

After he and Walker discuss the actual text of the message, he hopes to post it on the school’s Facebook page, Twitter page and on RamPort, ASU’s portal that sends out e-mail announcements and emergency notifications.

Those wanting to get involved in a search can e-mail Melissa Walker at mwalker5@angelo.edu. They can also make contact through the “Find Hailey Dunn” Facebook page. Walker said once about 20 people have shown interest, more details about the time and date of a search will be discussed.

NANCY GRACE
Missing Cheerleader`s Mom and Boyfriend Failed Polygraph
Aired January 6, 2011 - 20:00   ET


BILLIE DUNN: ... The first Friday they had it set up for us to take, we had taken Ativan the night before to go to sleep. They didn`t tell us we couldn`t have anxiety medicine. So when we were able to get it set up again -- Shawn had actually called them and asked them if he could come down and take it yet, and they said yes. They came, picked him up. He took his. I went in. They told me he failed it. I lost it, of course. I told them I had so much faith in that test.

Then they took me over to the courthouse. I took a polygraph test. I failed it, lost all faith in the test. A couple of other people failed it.

<snipped>

GRACE: What about that, Billie? I know that she was seen by neighbors around lunchtime, noon in the backyard by herself, talking on a cell phone, right?

DUNN: Right. And I`m guessing the police would have asked that same neighbor, was my car here yet? Was Shawn home yet? They`ve talked to his mom and an uncle who stopped by his mom`s house saying that he was there.

I have to agree with you on your comments.  These are the things that concern me and why perhaps I think he could be involved.  However, there could very well be the possibility that she left on her own and something happened after.  So sad.  I so hope they find her alive and soon!

BREAKING: Searcher Finds Knife Cover in Creek 10 Miles North of Hailey Dunn's Colorado City Home 1/7/11

Colorado City, Texas -

A possible break in the case of missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn came today as a member of a civilian search party found a pair of sunglasses and a knife-cover in a creek north of the city.

Midlander Holly Jenkins spotted the knife-cover in Morgan Creek in Dunn, Texas, a small town north of Colorado City.

Jenkins reached into the water and retrieved the cover before placing it on the ground along the wooded shore area.

Jenkins is one of about 100 community members from Colorado City, Snyder, Midland and elsewhere who formed at 2:00pm Friday to conduct a civilian search.

The group split into two parties, one starting in Colorado City working towards Dunn and the other beginning in Dunn and working their way toward Colorado City.

It was just after 4:00pm that Jenkins discovered the knife-cover floating in the water.

The creek is less than a mile away from a residence where Shawn Adkins is staying at this time.

Adkins is the boyfriend of Hailey Dunn's mother, Billie Jean Dunn.

Our CBS 7 crew visited the residence and knocked on the door to speak with Adkins.

A male came to the door and said "Our attorney has advised us to not speak with anyone. No comment".

CBS 7 contacted the Department of Public Safety about the knife-cover.

The Colorado City Police called the CBS 7 crew on scene for directions and began an investigation into the potential evidentiary find.

Watch CBS 7 NEWS at 10:00pm for a live report from Colorado City, video of the knife-cover and an interview with a friend of Shawn Adkins.

UPDATED 4:15 p.m.: Community searches for missing Colorado City teen


COLORADO CITY -- As law enforcement officials continued investigation efforts this afternoon in search of missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn, community members from throughout the region took up an effort of their own.

At 2 p.m., Colorado City resident Stephanie Boyd gathered a group of community members to embark on a foot search for Hailey, who has been missing for 11 days.

Hailey Darlene Dunn was last seen by her mother’s live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, on Dec. 27. Shawn reported he was told by Hailey around 3:15 p.m. that she would be walking to her dad’s house then spending the night with a friend, Mary Beth Garcia. Hailey’s dad said she never visited him that day and that she reportedly didn't spend the night with Mary Beth.

Boyd got the word out about the search using a Facebook page dedicated to bringing the 13-year-old home safe. Multiple groups of 15 or more citizens dispatched to head to at least three different areas surrounding Colorado City.

The search wasn't in any way conducted by city officials or law enforcement.

Boyd said she had a “gut feeling” she would find some evidence of Hailey between Colorado City and Dunn, which is about 11 miles north of Colorado City on State Hwy. 208.

Bill Stinson has lived in Colorado City for 72 years and said he knows every cow trail in Mitchell County. He had already been searching for Hailey for two days, but joined the official citizen-led search this afternoon.

“If she’s still in Mitchell County we’ll find her today,” he said. “I just hope we find her alive somewhere.”

BREAKING NEWS: Hailey's Mom Leaves Home With Texas Rangers (with video)

Colorado City, TX—   The mother of missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn left her Colorado City home Friday evening at the request of Texas Rangers, according to KTAB's Tiffany Tatro.
Billie Dunn told Tatro she was going to answer a few questions and wouldn't be gone long.

Prior to Dunn leaving the home, authorities took away one of Billie Dunn's vehicles as well as an X-Box from the home. Law enforcement told Tatro they were looking for any clues regarding Hailey's disappearance. The vehicle is expected to be taken to professionals to be inspected.

Late Friday, Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer confirmed authorities were looking at two items discovered in a stream near the home of one of Hailey's family members. Kampfer said someone located oil field glasses as well as a knife sheath. At this point, authorities have no reason to believe they're connected to the case. However, they plan to follow all leads.

Earlier in the day, investigators in plain clothes went go door-to-door asking residents of Colorado City for any information they might have on Dunn, who was been missing since Dec. 27 from the small town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland.

Hailey was last seen on a Monday afternoon, having told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, that she was going to spend the night with a friend.  She was reported missing 24 hours later.

Hundreds of volunteers have again hit the streets and woods across Michell County to look for any signs of the missing Colorado City Middle School student.  An organized search started at 2 p.m. Friday at the Mitchell County courthouse. Various groups have planned other searches, with many of those searches being organized on Facebook.

Abilene's Child Abduction Unit joined the investigation today, putting the number of assisting agencies at 10.


As of 10 a.m. Friday, Hailey's mother Billy Dunn was still resting following an intense interview on HLN's "Nancy Grace" program Thursday evening.

"It's not feeling good," she said of the chances of a happy ending.

I don't think there would be any work except oil field work in the area. It use to be boom town there for oil, but many of the wells have been shut down and there is oil drilling equipment rusting in big fields.

Officials: "We're Still Hoping to Find Hailey Alive" (with video)

   "We're still hoping to find Hailey alive somewhere," said Senior Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Sparky Dean.
That was the underlying message during a news conference Friday afternoon in Colorado City concerning the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

"We're looking at anybody, we're looking at everybody," said Dean. "We aren't focused on one person or one or two people. There's no smoking gun out there."

Dean urged for patience from the public as it concerns locating evidence or pinpointing suspects.

"Everything takes time," said Dean. "Not everyone is forthcoming with interviews and telling the truth. It doesn't mean they're guilty of something. They may just not be comfortable talking to a police officer."

City Manager Pete Kampfer noted all the grassroot activity and searching that was going on in-and-around Colorado City and Mitchell County Friday.

"We're staying with that from a positive perspective," added Kampfer.

Kampfer also talked about law enforcement going door-to-door throughout town in hopes of finding clues. Kampfer says authorities were looking for very focused information.

"They're asking very specific questions as they do searches, as they conduct their search," added Kampfer. "They have a very detailed script that has a focused questionnaire that may help us fill in any voids from the first search that we did."

Authorities added that they plan to release new developments and information daily in the morning and afternoon.

Could it that Shawn is being truthful in regards to his last contact with Hailey?  Did Hailey leave her home with the intention of visiting her father and then spending the night with Marybeth.  Has Hailey's father been questioned and ... has his home searched in the process of elimination?  Has members of Marybeth's family been questioned and ... has their home been searched in the process of elimination?
A little girl is missing.  All avenues must be investigated.

According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said Thursday that Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey never had been to the Garcia home to spend the night. Mary Beth had spent the night at Hailey Dunn’s home once.

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared earlier on Grace’s program to discuss her daughter’s disappearance

MICHAEL BOARD, WOAI NEWSRADIO:  Now, earlier in that day, we had a neighbor confirm that she saw Hailey in the back yard speaking on some sort of a phone. We don`t know if that`s a home phone or a cell phone. ...

GRACE: I want to go back to Billie Dunn. I understand police have seized yours and your boyfriend`s cell phones. Why?

BILLIE DUNN: Yes. They`re taking them to check out all the calls that were made on Monday. Hailey did have my cell phone at home and access to it. That would have been the cell phone she was on. She didn`t use Shawn`s cell phone, but they`re checking them both, getting the records off of both of those. And hopefully, we`re going to have answers from the cell phones tonight.

GRACE: OK. So this has nothing to do with you being under any kind of suspicion at all. This has to do with the fact that your little girl and you shared a cell phone, and they`re trying to figure out who she was calling and who was calling her, correct?

BILLIE DUNN: Correct. I left the cell phone at home while I was at work, for the kids.

BILLIE DUNN: Yes. He had been at his mother`s house all day Monday. Police have confirmed that he got home about 3:00 o`clock, and Hailey left shortly after.

GRACE: OK. Where does he work?

BILLIE DUNN: He`s not working.

GRACE: OK. Last night, didn`t you tell me he was on his way home from work, or did I just get that mistaken?

BILLIE DUNN: No, I said that. He went in Monday morning, but there was an argument. He was fired or there was just a big blow-up there. He walked out. He left his job by 6:30 in the morning and went to Big Spring (ph) to his mom`s house.

If the neighbor saw Hailey talking on the phone outside in the back yard shed, if no one was home I wonder why she did that. Also, if she was there during the day, why did she leave when the boyfriend got there.

Bingo!!

Fanny ... if Shawn was not at home around noon ... Hailey would have no need for privacy while talking on the cell.

That's what I thought.

Could the other "couple" of people that failed the polygraph have been Shawn's mother and uncle who provided him with an alibi in regards to where he was prior to 3:00 PM?

So when we were able to get it set up again -- Shawn had actually called them and asked them if he could come down and take it yet, and they said yes. They came, picked him up. He took his. I went in. They told me he failed it. I lost it, of course. I told them I had so much faith in that test.

Then they took me over to the courthouse. I took a polygraph test. I failed it, lost all faith in the test. A couple of other people failed it.

It depends. Sometimes I have to go outside if my cell phone reception is poor. Or perhaps she is trying to hide a smelly habit from her parents by smoking outside or in the shed. Or, maybe Shawn lied.

Deception Indicated?

The Hailey Dunn Story: Conflicting Assertions Abound
POSTED: 11:44 am CST January 7, 2011
UPDATED: 7:32 pm CST January 7, 2011


COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The reporting of rumor, innuendo and misrepresentation seems to be a part – sadly – of the unfolding story surrounding missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

Despite statements to the contrary by people involved, Sparky Dean, senior trooper of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told KTXS on Friday that no one has been told whether they have passed or failed a polygraph test.

This comes despite the statement made on national television by Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother, that she and her former live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had both failed polygraph tests. She made this statement on live television Thursday night on HLN's "Nancy Grace."

Told of Dean's statement that no results of passing or failure were pronounced, Billie Dunn twice reasserted her position: She was told there was "deception indicated."

Latest Information on the Disappearance of Hailey Dunn
Updated: Jan 08, 2011 8:00 AM CST

1/8/11 Update, 8:00 a.m.: Searches are starting back up in Mitchell and Howard Counties. The next update from law enforcement is expected around 10:00 this morning.

1/7/11 Update, 6:50 p.m.: NewsWest9's Nick Lawton reports that volunteers have stopped searching for the evening as it is too dark. Searchers found a knife sheath and a pair of sun glasses near a creek between Colorado City and the community of Dunn today.

1/7/11 Update, 5:40 p.m.: Howard County residents are planning to search again Saturday morning. They are meeting at the Coahoma Volunteer Fire Department at 8:00 a.m. All are welcome to join. Dress accordingly as search will go through rough terrain. The same group will hold a vigil for Hailey at 5:00 Sunday evening in Coahoma.

1/7/11 Update, 4:45 p.m.: The day started with non-uniformed officers going door to door around Hailey's neighborhood speaking with residents. DPS says these were more focused interviews. They have been asking residents a series of questions and asking if they can search their homes. Police have re-interviewed sex offenders in the area and searches have been going on in Colorado City and in Howard County. Residents took it upon themselves to search eastern Howard County on horseback and ATVs. People also gathered around 2:00 Friday afternoon at the Mitchell County Courthouse.

They then started heading north to the community of Dunn, Texas. Dunn is where Hailey's mother's boyfriend lives. DPS also commented Friday on Hailey's mother's claims that she and her boyfriend failed polygraph tests. DPS trooper Sparky Dean tells NewsWest9 that information is not released to anyone as part of the investigation.

Texas Equusearch tells NewsWest9 the family has requested their assistance. They search for missing people on mounted patrols. They are currently on standby and work with law enforcement to see if they are needed.

That's what I thought.

Yup, something tells me the mother knows exactly why Hailey avoided her boyfriend.   My other question is why is it that BOTH the boyfriend & mother reportedly took something that Billie now claims prevented the LD be done....upset & automatically go to take something OR an attempt to purposefully have an excuse for an unfavourable result?

 ::MonkeyMad:: I am still so curious as to why LE ask citizens to join the search and NOT TES, rather they are on standby.........wouldn't it make far more sense to have a organized search by a group that is trained on how to do grid searches, how to handle potential evidence etc, rather than the opposite ::MonkeyConfused::

http://www.ktxs.com/big_country_news/26400628/detail.html

Also, I remember they took Ativan previously and couldn't take the test so this stmt makes NO sense unless it's just the usual crappy reporting?

Adkins failed the test first, she said. Then after being told about Adkin’s failure, Billie Dunn said she failed the test also. Both said they had taken medication that may have affected the test results.


so, if they couldn't take the first test scheduled due to the ativan why take it again and admit it could have affected the test?


O/T~I was supposed to be at the service for the Natalie and Jon DeBlase, but little man came home from school with a high fever yesterday. I am praying there is a huge turnout since it seems hardly anyone from the family gave a d@mn except the grandparents who had raised them for a time

No clue, unless they are doing or attempting damage control since they assumed she was a runaway....but I am more concerned right now with all the inconsistencies. I have been reading all over the place and read that Billie tool her poly first (again prolly sloppy reporting), and that LE brought in the Texas Rangers and then we hear Hailey's family did. Also, the inconsistencies about whether of not they were told of the failed poly's, they say yes, but then we were told no that know one was told of the results. Also, when I read the comments and status updates on HD's MS she references the MB beat up another girl.

<snipped>

GRACE: Now a woman in the community says she spotted Hailey that evening. This would have been Monday evening, with the little neighbor girl and the neighbor girl`s little boyfriend. What would he have been, 12, 13? Is that the little neighbor she was going to visit?

B. DUNN: No. That was the girl she was going to visit.

GRACE: What did this woman see?

B. DUNN: She saw Hailey, Mary Beth and a boy that she didn`t recognize.

GRACE: Now have you -- have you spoken with Mary Beth? Did that in fact happen?

 
B. DUNN: I hadn`t asked her about that. I`m letting the police handle Mary Beth. I do call her to ask her hey, what did Hailey say to you on Monday, did she call you Monday, did you guys text, did she say she was going somewhere else Monday, or with another friend Monday, and she tells me no
.

GRACE: Did she say she even saw Hailey on Monday?

B. DUNN: She hasn`t told me that she did. No.




I guess it could be exhaustian, but I would have asked more detailed questions "she hasn't told me that she did".....I think it's a yes or no question, but in the end she did state no. If I were BD I would have asked far more questions of MB instead of letting the LE handle her as they can handle that later, but after reading the MS comments wrt MB, haters, etc., I just can't imagine NOT asking her those pertinent questions.

I just don't know, I expect that SA had a hand in whatever happened with Hailey but I did read the bloodhounds tracked Hailey to MB's house, of course again it could be crappy reporting but if they did I would want more info on MB. If she did beat up this girl that Hailey commented about on her MS, I just wonder if she'd lie about Hailey ???? Sorry if that is making little sense, and I am rambling but teens/kids have done some absolutely horrific things to their "friends", in one case a "friend " lured another girl out and a pack of girls literally tortured her, beat her, raped her with a tire iron, set her on fire, and eventually killed her so it's not outside the realm of possibility that some really nasty kids could have had an opportunity to do something to Hailey.......still a reach, but possible.

That case threw me for a loop and scared the hell out of me to think young girls could do things I can't even imagine, I sometimes wish I never read that book, but here is link about the case in general and ties into why I think teens could have done something horrific ::MonkeyNoNo::

UPDATE 1:25 PM.: Search for Hailey Dunn moves north
DPS sets up staging area in Dunn


By Staff Report

Saturday, January 8, 2011

The search for missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has expanded northward from Colorado City, the Department of Public Safety announced Saturday morning.

In a news release, Trooper Sparky Dean of the Abilene DPS office said, "A temporary staging area will be set up in the community of Dunn, Texas, Saturday morning. This could be one of several in the next few days as the search for Hailey continues and broadens in scope."

Dunn is 14 miles north of Colorado City, which is 75 miles north of San Angelo.

Officials expected Saturday morning to finish up an intensive door-to-door canvass of Colorado City, which has about 1,500 households.

"There are several areas of interest that will be explored by law enforcement officers. Some of these will be searched today and others possibly at a later date," Dean said.

So they are looking for Hailey Dunn in Dunn City Texas now?

Could it that Shawn is being truthful in regards to his last contact with Hailey?  Did Hailey leave her home with the intention of visiting her father and then spending the night with Marybeth.  Has Hailey's father been officially interrogated by investigators  and ... has his home searched in the process of elimination?  Has Marybeth ... Marybeth's boyfriend ... Marybeth's family members been officially interrogated by investigators and ... has their home been searched in the process of elimination?

A little girl is missing.  All avenues must be investigated.

According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said Thursday that Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey never had been to the Garcia home to spend the night. Mary Beth had spent the night at Hailey Dunn’s home once.

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared earlier on Grace’s program to discuss her daughter’s disappearance

I wouldn't be too quick to discard the oil field worker theory.  jmho   My sister works for an office that deals with mineral rights etc. (landman), and she told me some months ago they had gotten busier lately, because there is renewed interest in oil, including abandoned & mothballed wells.  These wells were abandoned or mothballed because they didn't produce enough oil to justify the expense of maintaining them.  However, the price of oil has gone up, hence, the renewed interest.  Plus, there are new wells going in.  I wonder if there's been some of this kind of activity going on again in the area?  Or even nearby?

Hailey Dunn - Missing Child Colorado City, TX

January 8th, 2011 5:31 pm CT

Saturday January 8, 2011 volunteer search parties canvassed the area around Dunn, Texas in search of Hailey Dunn. Dunn, Texas is located 10 miles from Colorado City, Texas. Dunn is where the grandmother of Shawn Adkins lives. Shawn Adkins is the last known person to see Hailey. Volunteer search groups met at the old Dollar General parking lot, located at 6th and Oak, at 9:30 am, 1 pm and 4 pm in Colorado City, Texas. Volunteers signed in at the search desk from as far as Austin, Texas. The groups conquered mesquite bushes, sticker patches, bobbed wire fences, cacti, steep ravines on foot and ATV's searching through abandoned houses, barns, oil leases, pastures, haystacks and metal troughs.

Hailey Dunn was reported missing by her mother, Billie Dunn on December 28, 2010. On Monday December 27, 2010 at approximately 3:15 pm Hailey told her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, she was going to go to her Dad's house and then walk to her friend's house five blocks away to spend the night. Hailey's brother, David Dunn, called the friend on December 28, 2010 and at this time it was discovered that Hailey never arrived at her home and a sleepover had not been planned.

Various law enforcement agencies are involved in the search for Hailey, including the FBI and the Texas Rangers. Law enforcement officers are conducting door to door searches of each and every house in Colorado City, Texas. The door to door search of the 1500 homes is expected to be completed January 8, 2011. The previous searches have included Hailey's home, a storage building, the Colorado River, local parks and wooded areas. Billboards and fliers throughout west Texas describe the missing cheerleader as 5 feet tall, 120 pounds, with long brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing navy blue sweatpants, a light-colored short-sleeved T-shirt, pink and white tennis shoes or flip flops and red hoop earrings.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Hailey Dunn is urged to contact the Colorado City Police Department at 325-728-5294.

Child Abduction Scare Causes Stir Saturday in Colorado City

In the heat of the investigation into the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn, authorities in Colorado City were called to investigate a reported child abduction case Saturday.
A 15-year-old juvenile female was in Colorado City visiting and reported that a hispanic male tried to force her into his vehicle, according to a news release from the Department of Public Safety.

Colorado City officers determined the alleged victim to be a runaway from Lubbock, Texas.

Charges are pending against the 15 year old.

Investigators believe this alleged event was not a part of the task force investigation.

Saturday evening, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro investigators and searchers hadn't found any evidence to indicate foul play in the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.
While no one is ruling out foul play at this point, Dean said the case could still be a runaway.

Dean says searchers hope to complete efforts in Dunn this evening and will then work their way south towards Colorado City.

Saturday, 11:00 a.m. Update:
Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer tells KTAB's Tiffany Tatro law enforcement will be focusing in on the town of Dunn Saturday after going door-to-door in Colorado City Friday.

Kampfer says a temporary command post is being set up in the small town approximately 12 miles north of Colorado City.

"There are several areas of interest that will be explored by law enforcement officers," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean in a new release. "Some of these will be searched today and others possibly at a later date."

Dunn is where searchers discovered oil field glasses and a knife sheath in a stream Friday evening. A volunteer searcher also told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro they discovered tire tracks leading to an empty field. The searcher said authorities were alerted.

Law enforcement can't yet confirm they've visited that location.

All of the discoveries occured within a mile of a home where the boyfriend of Hailey's mother is believed to be staying.

Again, Kampfer says none of the developments or discoveries made by the volunteer search parties can be tied directly back to Hailey's disappearance.

Senior Trooper Sparky Dean says he expects officers to complete the canvas of Hailey’s immediate neighborhood today.

I wouldn't be too quick to discard the oil field worker theory.  jmho   My sister works for an office that deals with mineral rights etc. (landman), and she told me some months ago they had gotten busier lately, because there is renewed interest in oil, including abandoned & mothballed wells.  These wells were abandoned or mothballed because they didn't produce enough oil to justify the expense of maintaining them.  However, the price of oil has gone up, hence, the renewed interest.  Plus, there are new wells going in.  I wonder if there's been some of this kind of activity going on again in the area?  Or even nearby? 

Oh no. I wasn't meaning there isn't ANY oil well work in the area. I really think that is probably the only work there is. I just meant it used to be a boom town area, and lots and lots of work there. I had heard they were working on some of the wells again since the price of oil is making it lucrative. I just mean that the economy is just not what it used to be.

Could it be that Billie Dunn misinterpreted the implication of the words ... "Deception Indicated"?  Could it be that both she and Shawn did not "fail" the polygraph?  Could it be that Shawn was being truthful and ... it was Hailey was being deceptive regarding her plans?

Deception Indicated?

The Hailey Dunn Story: Conflicting Assertions Abound
POSTED: 11:44 am CST January 7, 2011
UPDATED: 7:32 pm CST January 7, 2011


COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The reporting of rumor, innuendo and misrepresentation seems to be a part – sadly – of the unfolding story surrounding missing teenager Hailey Dunn.

Despite statements to the contrary by people involved, Sparky Dean, senior trooper of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told KTXS on Friday that no one has been told whether they have passed or failed a polygraph test.

This comes despite the statement made on national television by Billie Dunn, Hailey's mother, that she and her former live-in boyfriend Shawn Adkins had both failed polygraph tests. She made this statement on live television Thursday night on HLN's "Nancy Grace."

Told of Dean's statement that no results of passing or failure were pronounced, Billie Dunn twice reasserted her position: She was told there was "deception indicated."

According to Adkins, Hailey had plans to spend the night at Mary Beth Garcia’s home the night before she was reported missing by Billie Jean Dunn.

Cecilia Garcia, Mary Beth’s mother, said Thursday that Mary Beth considers Hailey to be her best friend, but Hailey never had been to the Garcia home to spend the night. Mary Beth had spent the night at Hailey Dunn’s home once.

Cecilia Garcia said the first time she saw Billie Jean Dunn was on television, when she appeared earlier on Grace’s program to discuss her daughter’s disappearance

Her mother`s boyfriend says that Hailey told him that she was going over to her father`s house and then over to a friend`s house. ...

Police, we`ve learned this week, brought in bloodhounds, and amazingly, those dogs were able to pick up Hailey`s scent. Yes, they tracked her exact path. They went from her mother`s home to her father`s home, and then from her father`s home to her friend`s home, which is a couple blocks away.

But Nancy, this is where the story takes a tragic turn. The bloodhounds then track her scent to a motel in Colorado City. Nancy, why does a 13-year-old girl have any reason in the world to go to a motel? Right now, they`re scanning through the surveillance cameras, and we`re told so far, they have not seen Hailey`s pictures on those security cameras, but they`re continuing to look into that area.

Maybe there`s another business there. Maybe there was a convenience store that maybe had a surveillance camera or a security camera. They`re hoping, they`re praying that maybe there was another camera in that area that was able to catch her picture.

Howard County Volunteers Continue Search For Missing Colorado City Teen 1/8/11

Greg Sherman
CBS 7 News
January 8, 2011

NORTH OF COAHOMA - As the search continued for Hailey Dunn continued Saturday in Mitchell and Scurry Counties, volunteers are out in Howard County all weekend hoping to find Hailey Dunn and bring her home.

.....What areas are you hoping to search by the end of the day?.....

"Howard County."

More than 60 volunteers searched across the county for Hailey, including former Sheriff Dale Walker.

"A group of civilians here in Howard County that have gathered together to share our efforts in trying to search. Today we're kind of focusing on the northside of the interstate. We also do have a group that's going on up and down the service roads of the interstate, taking those side roads east all the way to Colorado City."

Including mothers Heather Maddox and Denise Coates.

"We just are out here trying to do our part as moms, as citizens, as somebody who's really trying to help and find this baby and get her home. I have 2 daughters. I have 1 that's just a year older than Hailey is and I cannot even begin to imagine how this feels or what this mother is going through," said Maddox, who designed and is selling a t-shirt to help raise money for the reward pot.

The search has special meaning to Vincent resident Machelle Barr, who is the 17-year old cousin of Hailey.

"It's been pretty upsetting here lately. We've all been praying just trying to help us find the clues that we need to do to help her, get where we need to go look for her."

.....When you hear all these things on the media, whether it be local, state or even Nancy Grace (on CNN Headline News), how are you holding up with all this?.....

"It's upsetting. I wish that I didn't have to believe all the false things that are going (around). I just wanna know what the true meaning is. I just, I hate all the rumors. I want to know if he (Shawn Atkins, the boyfriend of Hailey's mom) has something to do with it or the mom does."

For now, everyone is hoping the blaze the right tracks that will lead to Hailey.

"We'll be out here everyday until we find her," said Maddox.

The search in Coahoma will resume at 8 AM Sunday at the Volunteer Fire Station.

If you would like more information on the search in Howard County or to purchase a t-shirt, call Maddox at 213-4478.

Coahoma and Forsan will both be hosting candlelight vigils Sunday at 5.

Cities Come Together to Find Hailey Dunn

By Geena Martinez
NewsWest 9

COLORADO CITY - West Texans have come together to help search for missing cheerleader, Hailey Dunn.

Everyday, people are showing up in droves, ready to help out.

On Saturday, those folks told NewsWest 9, they're not giving up until they find Hailey.

"I've got children and I hope that if it ever happens to me, I'd want the community and everybody to do the same for me," concerned resident, Timothy Boyd, said.

Without a trace of Hailey Dunn anywhere in sight, the citizens of Colorado City and surrounding towns are stepping up their efforts to find the missing 13-year-old.

On Saturday, nearly 200 people came out on foot, on horseback and even on four-wheelers, trying to find anything that can lead to Hailey, but many of those people agree, they're hoping their search doesn't turn up anything.

"Just looking for tracks, just looking for grass that's laid down, looking for thick wooded areas," Boyd said. "We hope we don't find anything of evidence in that, we're hoping that she's safe somewhere else."

Word of Saturday's search spread fast on Facebook and it drew people from all over West Texas including Sweetwater and San Angelo, and even someone from Austin.

"It makes me feel great, I mean, Texas cares and it shows," Volunteer, Bubba Limones, said.

Limones helped organize the search. He and other residents said they never thought twice about their children's safety before Hailey vanished.

"This doesn't happen here," he said. "I've lived here for 30 years and I was never scared of anything like this happening."

Amber Austerman, a resident of Sweetwater, grew up in Colorado City.

"It's just hard, I cant imagine, I cant sleep," Austerman said. "I don't think anybody can sleep at night if they're a mother."

Whether it was feeling a parent's agony or just simply wanting to help out their community, searchers said they won't stop until Hailey is found.

"Just to find her, just to make sure she's safe," Austerman said. "She needs to be at home where she belongs."

UPDATE: No Evidence of Foul Play in Dunn Disappearance

Saturday, 7:00 p.m. Update:
Saturday evening, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro investigators and searchers hadn't found any evidence to indicate foul play in the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.
While no one is ruling out foul play at this point, Dean said the case could still be a runaway.

Dean says searchers hope to complete efforts in Dunn this evening and will then work their way south towards Colorado City.

Saturday, 11:00 a.m. Update:
Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer tells KTAB's Tiffany Tatro law enforcement will be focusing in on the town of Dunn Saturday after going door-to-door in Colorado City Friday.

Kampfer says a temporary command post is being set up in the small town approximately 12 miles north of Colorado City.

"There are several areas of interest that will be explored by law enforcement officers," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean in a new release. "Some of these will be searched today and others possibly at a later date."

Dunn is where searchers discovered oil field glasses and a knife sheath in a stream Friday evening. A volunteer searcher also told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro they discovered tire tracks leading to an empty field. The searcher said authorities were alerted.

Law enforcement can't yet confirm they've visited that location.

All of the discoveries occured within a mile of a home where the boyfriend of Hailey's mother is believed to be staying.

Again, Kampfer says none of the developments or discoveries made by the volunteer search parties can be tied directly back to Hailey's disappearance.

Senior Trooper Sparky Dean says he expects officers to complete the canvas of Hailey’s immediate neighborhood today.

Saturday, 8:00 a.m. Update:
Some items discovered by searchers late Friday have raised the eyebrows of investigators in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer confirmed authorities were looking at two items discovered in a stream near the home of one of Shawn Adkins' relatives. Adkins is the boyfriend of Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn. It's believed Adkins may be staying at the home, according to the CBS affiliate in Midland.

Kampfer told KTAB News someone located oil field glasses as well as a knife sheath.

At this point, authorities have no reason to believe they're connected to the case. However, they plan to follow all leads.

Because the stream where the items were discovered is so close to the home where Adkins might be staying, crews from the Midland CBS affiliate knocked on the door of the home to see if they could speak with Adkins about the findings.

A male reportedly came to the door and told CBS 7 crews, "our attorney has advised us to not speak with anyone. No comment".

As investigators take tips and continue to interview those who knew and came in contact with Hailey, they report no single key theory in Hailey's disappearance has emerged.

"We're looking at anybody, we're looking at everybody," said Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper Sparky Dean. "We aren't focused on one person or one or two people. There's no smoking gun out there."

At this point, authorities still have no suspects in the teen's disappearance. Dean tells bigcountyrhomepage.com that can be typical in an investigation of this nature.

"Everything takes time," said Dean. "Not everyone is forthcoming with interviews and telling the truth. It doesn't mean they're guilty of something. They may just not be comfortable talking to a police officer."

Authorities seized new evidence Friday from the Dunn household. KTAB cameras were rolling as law enforcement took away one of Billie Dunn's vehicles as well as an X-Box from the home. Law enforcement told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro they were looking for any clues regarding Hailey's disappearance. The vehicle is expected to be taken to professionals to be inspected.

Hailey's mother, Billy Dunn, also spent a few hours Friday evening speaking with Texas Rangers about the investigation. Dunn told bigcountryhomepage.com she gave authorities another statement and was given the option to speak with a grief counseler.

Billie Dunn was joined by Hailey's father Clint Dunn outside the home after she returned. Both declined to do on-camera interviews. The pair did, however, wish to express frustration about not being kept in the loop regarding the investigation.

When asked whether they had anything they wanted to say to the public, Hailey's father spoke out.

"Don't forget, just please don't forget (about Hailey) until we bring her home," Clint Dunn said.

Officials now say the information that leads to Hailey's safe return is $15,000. They previously estimated much higher at $25,000.

Law Enforcement Continue Search for Missing Colorado City Teen 1/8/11
January 8, 2011

DUNN - Searchers looking for missing 13 year old Hailey Dunn covered square mile after square mile in Mitchell and Scurry Counties Saturday.

Officials thought they may have caught a break when a girl called police saying someone tried to force her into a car, but it was determined that it was a runaway from Lubbock and not the missing teen.

Information and the search is moving slowly as all leads are checked.

Officials spent Saturday searching the small town of Dunn, located 15 miles north of Colorado City in Scurry County.

DPS, FBI, Scurry and Mitchell County Sheriff's Deputies and volunteers are among those looking for Hailey, who has been missing since December 27.

Searchers were hoping to wrap up their search in Dunn Saturday night or Sunday.

Lamar Advertising has put up more than 80 billboards, both digital and paper, with her information all across the state in case she is in a different part of Texas.

(Bolded by me)
The teen who reported someone tried to kidnap her could be charged with filing a false report:

Missing girl investigators find Lubbock teen (NOTE:  THIS IS NOT HAILEY)
January 9, 2011

Investigators searching for a missing Colorado City girl said Saturday they were investigating a kidnapping claim from a Lubbock teenager they believe ran away from home.

Investigators in Colorado City were called Saturday morning to investigate a possible child abduction from a 15-year-old Lubbock girl who told authorities a man tried to force her into his vehicle, according to a news release from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

After talking with a witness and the girl, investigators believed the girl to be a runaway from Lubbock and began questioning the kidnapping claim, said Trooper Sparky Dean, an Abilene-area DPS spokesman.

The 15-year-old, whose name was not released due to her age, could face a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report to a police officer, Dean said.

Dean said investigators were not connecting the alleged attempted abduction to the investigation and search for 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City.

Dunn, a Colorado City Middle School student, was reported missing by her mother Dec. 28. Colorado City is about 110 miles southeast of Lubbock.

Dunn's mother told investigators her boyfriend said Dunn left their home Dec. 27 to visit her father and then spend a night with a friend several blocks away.

Investigators' efforts have been hampered by individuals that have been deceptive or uncooperative, according to the DPS news release.

Authorities and search parties have scoured Colorado City and Mitchell County in the search.d

Another thing - I wonder if the xbox taken was Hailey's, meaning in her bedroom and if they contain/hold a time/datestamp of last time played on them? 

That's an interesting thought, fatcatluker.   :smt019

UPDATE: No Evidence of Foul Play in Dunn Disappearance

Saturday, 7:00 p.m. Update:
Saturday evening, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro investigators and searchers hadn't found any evidence to indicate foul play in the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.
While no one is ruling out foul play at this point, Dean said the case could still be a runaway.

Dean says searchers hope to complete efforts in Dunn this evening and will then work their way south towards Colorado City.

Saturday, 11:00 a.m. Update:
Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer tells KTAB's Tiffany Tatro law enforcement will be focusing in on the town of Dunn Saturday after going door-to-door in Colorado City Friday.

Kampfer says a temporary command post is being set up in the small town approximately 12 miles north of Colorado City.

"There are several areas of interest that will be explored by law enforcement officers," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean in a new release. "Some of these will be searched today and others possibly at a later date."

Dunn is where searchers discovered oil field glasses and a knife sheath in a stream Friday evening. A volunteer searcher also told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro they discovered tire tracks leading to an empty field. The searcher said authorities were alerted.

Law enforcement can't yet confirm they've visited that location.

All of the discoveries occured within a mile of a home where the boyfriend of Hailey's mother is believed to be staying.

Again, Kampfer says none of the developments or discoveries made by the volunteer search parties can be tied directly back to Hailey's disappearance.


Senior Trooper Sparky Dean says he expects officers to complete the canvas of Hailey’s immediate neighborhood today.

Saturday, 8:00 a.m. Update:
Some items discovered by searchers late Friday have raised the eyebrows of investigators in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn.

Colorado City City Manager Pete Kampfer confirmed authorities were looking at two items discovered in a stream near the home of one of Shawn Adkins' relatives. Adkins is the boyfriend of Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn. It's believed Adkins may be staying at the home, according to the CBS affiliate in Midland.

Kampfer told KTAB News someone located oil field glasses as well as a knife sheath.

At this point, authorities have no reason to believe they're connected to the case. However, they plan to follow all leads.

Because the stream where the items were discovered is so close to the home where Adkins might be staying, crews from the Midland CBS affiliate knocked on the door of the home to see if they could speak with Adkins about the findings.

A male reportedly came to the door and told CBS 7 crews, "our attorney has advised us to not speak with anyone. No comment".

As investigators take tips and continue to interview those who knew and came in contact with Hailey, they report no single key theory in Hailey's disappearance has emerged.

"We're looking at anybody, we're looking at everybody," said Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper Sparky Dean. "We aren't focused on one person or one or two people. There's no smoking gun out there."

At this point, authorities still have no suspects in the teen's disappearance. Dean tells bigcountyrhomepage.com that can be typical in an investigation of this nature.

"Everything takes time," said Dean. "Not everyone is forthcoming with interviews and telling the truth. It doesn't mean they're guilty of something. They may just not be comfortable talking to a police officer."

Authorities seized new evidence Friday from the Dunn household. KTAB cameras were rolling as law enforcement took away one of Billie Dunn's vehicles as well as an X-Box from the home. Law enforcement told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro they were looking for any clues regarding Hailey's disappearance. The vehicle is expected to be taken to professionals to be inspected.

Hailey's mother, Billy Dunn, also spent a few hours Friday evening speaking with Texas Rangers about the investigation. Dunn told bigcountryhomepage.com she gave authorities another statement and was given the option to speak with a grief counseler.

Billie Dunn was joined by Hailey's father Clint Dunn outside the home after she returned. Both declined to do on-camera interviews. The pair did, however, wish to express frustration about not being kept in the loop regarding the investigation.

When asked whether they had anything they wanted to say to the public, Hailey's father spoke out.

"Don't forget, just please don't forget (about Hailey) until we bring her home," Clint Dunn said.

Officials now say the information that leads to Hailey's safe return is $15,000. They previously estimated much higher at $25,000.

I wonder if the neighbor that saw her on the phone around lunchtime gave the same description of Hailey's clothing as SA? Or if he saw her wearing something different?

I also wonder if since Shawn was taking the drug Ativan and he shared it with Billie so that they could sleep , maybe he slipped some to Hailey rendering her  defensless against him. Perhaps she died from the drug ...this would explain no sign of a struggle or defense wounds on him.

I also am very interested in where exactly it was that Shawn  came home from when Billie called to tell him that Hailey was missing and how long that it took him to get home? For instance if it took him 30 minutes to get there then it would probably be a good idea to start a perimeter search 30 miles surrounding her home. Many times the person will return to the scene of the crime . I am not saying that SA did anything to Hailey but right now it does not look good for him IMO.

On December 27, 2010 ... Haily Dunn's last known contact is her mother's live-in boyfriend ... Shawn Adkins.

On January 3 ... Billie Dunn was under the impression that Shawn returned from work at 3:00 PM on December 27, 2010 and had a short connection with Hailey.

On January 4 ... Billie Dunn changes the story.  Shawn did not arrive home at 3:00 PM December 27th from work.  He had been fired that morning and had spent the day at his mothers.

Consider a fired Shawn was not at work on the morning of December 28th ... what was he doing?

GRACE: Tell me what happened the day she went missing, Miss Dunn.

DUNN: She went missing on Monday while I was at work. My boyfriend - - he came home from work about 3:00 -- or he got to my house about 3:00. And he`s seen Hailey. Hailey was there. She told him, I`m running across the street to my dad`s house for a few minutes but I`m going Mary Beth`s, and I`m staying the night there. Let my mom know.

So that evening when he picked me up from work, we got home, we were getting ready for bed. I didn`t get worried when I hadn`t heard from Hailey. I thought she was at Mary Beth`s. I was kind of upset that she didn`t call and confirm it with me, but not worried at that point.

Tuesday, I was at work again, I left my cell phone at home for my kids to use when I`m working. So Tuesday, I called my son. I said tell Hailey text the little girl, her friend, tell Hailey she needs to go ahead and get home. This was around lunch. My son called me back within a few minutes and she said, mom, she said Hailey never made it over there. She never spent the night.

So at that point I called Hailey`s dad and found out she didn`t over there and she didn`t stay the night with him. I left from work and went to the police station in Colorado City and reported her missing.

According to the Nancy Grace transcripts ... between December 27th and January 4th ... Billie Dunn was not aware that Shawn Adkins had been fired.  Why?

During much of that period LE had not taken Hailey's disappearance seriously.  She had been considered a runaway.  What was a "fired" Shawn doing?  Was a coverup taking place?  Did Shawn have assistance?   

Maybe there is a reason that two other persons beside Billie Dunn and Shawn Adkins were requested to take polygraphs.  Maybe there is a reason why everybody apparently failed.

Colorado City Police: Inconsistent Statements Making Investigation Of Missing Teen Tough

POSTED: 4:31 pm CST January 9, 2011

Colorado City Police struggle with inconsistent statements, as they work to create a time line of when 13 year old Hailey Dunn went missing.

They say a new lead, from a witness who saw Hailey either Sunday December 26th, or Monday December 27th, walking on Manual Street in Colorado City with two girls could be helpful information.

They're asking those 2 unidentified girls come forward and answer questions.

Though family says she was last seen December 27th, Sunday law officials confirmed there have been inconsistencies in the families statements.

When it comes to the search, law enforcement would not release any information on their findings in the small town of Dunn, where they've concentrated their search this weekend.

Residents were out again Sunday, looking for any evidence that could point to just what happened.

Hailey was reported to police as missing December 28th.

They say a new lead, from a witness who saw Hailey either Sunday December 26th, or Monday December 27th, walking on Manual Street in Colorado City with two girls could be helpful information.

They're asking those 2 unidentified girls come forward and answer questions.

Though family says she was last seen December 27th, Sunday law officials confirmed there have been inconsistencies in the families statements.

When it comes to the search, law enforcement would not release any information on their findings in the small town of Dunn, where they've concentrated their search this weekend.

Residents were out again Sunday, looking for any evidence that could point to just what happened.

Hailey was reported to police as missing December 28th.

Thanks fatcatlurker.

Confirmed to who?  I have not read any official press release from LE.  I must have missed it.

Colorado City Police: Inconsistent Statements Making Investigation Of Missing Teen Tough

I am not real good with google and capturing screen shots etc.... so can anyone tell me how far Manuel street would be from Chestnut?

Chestnut and Manuel come together. It is just north of 17th street.

Hey monkeys! I've been keeping up quietly, but I do have a thought about the xbox that was taken. I'm sure it probably does log the last time it was played, but more importantly, like most gaming systems you can play and chat and make friends with other user all over the world. I'm wondering if maybe Hailey could have used it for that, which is probably what LE was looking for when it was siezed? Since I read earlier somewhere that there was no computer at Billie's home. JMO, thoughts are welcome :-)

Unless you have internet access you can not get on the web with just an xbox. As for the time it was played - I know when my kids move ours from room to room they do not fix the time on it. So the time on the box may be of no use. Of course they could do a backward search from the time it is showing now until when it was last played - but not if you unplug it.

I thought on NG the other nite when they had both bio parents on they had an outside shot of their houses and looked to be they were backed up to each other, basically same lot but each on their own street.  The father was pointing at his house from hers and saying she just had to walk thru the yards????

Let`s go out to the father, Clint Dunn. They`re in the middle of a divorce. It`s been going on three years now, but they`ve united in the search for their daughter tonight. Mr. Dunn, have you submitted to a polygraph?

CLINT DUNN, FATHER: I told them that I would take one, too.

GRACE: I`m sorry. I couldn`t hear you. Repeat?

CLINT DUNN: I told the FBI yesterday that I would take one.

GRACE: And are they scheduling that for you?

CLINT DUNN: I have no idea.

GRACE: Now, Mr. Dunn, you said your daughter would visit you at all different times of the day. She would not call ahead of time. But you were right across the street. So whenever she felt like it, she could walk right over to your place.

CLINT DUNN: Yes.

CLINT DUNN: At all times. She might come over for five minutes, she might come over and spend all day. She comes over every day.

GRACE: Does she let you know she`s coming or does she just show up?

CLINT DUNN: She just shows up.

GRACE: Well, you know what?

CLINT DUNN: She just walks across the field most of the time.

Since SA p/u Mom from work I am assuming that he also took her there that morn?  He could have come right back and done something with HD then because she didn't talk to her best friend all day and the brother hasn't said his where abouts has he?  It could've happened in the am and then he went to Mom's or later in the day and then to Mom's or maybe Mom is covering for him?  I don't trust this guy for some reason.  Don't really trust anyone where a child is concerned but...All IMO!

Let me add that if he did something with her later in the day and the sighting of HD with another girl and guy is correct, could that have been SA hanging with her since there has been no other girl come forward to say she was with HD?  Well hasn't come forward that we know of.  I just feel like SA did something and then ran towards Mom's to dispose of stuff and clean up? All hypothetical questions and just my opinion!

Haven't seen this article posted???  Its rather long but I cut this bit out, thought it was rather interesting.....

THE FAMILY

“You get this false sense of a security in a small town thinking that because you live in a small town that something like this couldn’t happen. But look: it did,” she said. “It’s really sad that something like this could put our small town on the map like that.”

Her family, including her children ages 8, 10-going-on-11, and 12, are all praying for Dunn’s return, she said.

“What parent wouldn’t want that child to come home, because we would all want to think our own child would come home,” she said.

Cecilia Garcia said she had never interacted with Dunn’s extended family.

The first time she saw Hailey’s mother was on television, she said. And Hailey never had spent the night at friend’s her house, even though two were close friends.

Mary Beth Garcia, her mother said, had visited the Dunns’ home overnight.

“My daughter, I let her visit her and spend the night,” she said. “And the last time I did, I didn’t like it, because I heard they were walking the street with other kids”

Garcia said she never let her daughter spend the night at the home again.


Later, she said that her daughter told her that Dunn had expressed a desire to move in with her birth father, which Garcia said her daughter indicated led to a family altercation around Christmastime.


Donna Byerley met Hailey her through Byerley’s boyfriend, who had once dated a relative of Billie Jean Dunn. She described the girl’s home life as “volatile at times.”

Byerley characterized the 13-year-old as not getting along with her mother’s boyfriend, and Hailey herself as always wandering “here and there,” coming and going largely “as she pleases.”

But rather than a little girl lost, Byerley painted a picture of a compassionate person, whether it was taking care of a mutual friend of a family pet, a girl who remained “very much an individual,” with an honest style of communication whether talking about school, family or friends.

Dunn has stayed with Byerley and her boyfriend off and on, including the last two weeks of the previous school year, Byerley said.

“That was the school year that I think she started in Colorado City, went to Snyder a month or so, and then back to Colorado City,” she said.

“The last few weeks, perhaps month, she was living with her Dad because she doesn’t like the boyfriend,” Byerley said, referring to Adkins.

Her mother’s new relationship, and worries that it was preventing her parents from being together, served as a partial catalyst for Hailey’s difficulties with Adkins, Byerley said.

Billie Jean Dunn said she met on the social network site MySpace.

“I know he yelled at her,” she said of Hailey’s relationship with Adkins, though she said she knew of no accusations of physical or other abuse.

In public statements, Billie Jean Dunn has said that while Hailey initially had issues with Adkins, she had warmed to him as time went on.

Similarly, Byerley said Clint and Billie Jean Dunn’s relationship often was rocky.

“They’ve always had blowouts — screaming, yelling,” she said.

A search of website publicdata.com reveals no criminal histories for Billie Jean Dunn or for Shawn Adkins. Clint Dunn, however, has multiple arrests, starting in 1994 for burglary of a building, a state jail felony. Following that are subsequent arrests in 1998 for possession of marijuana, under 2 ounces, one in March 1999 for driving with a suspended license.

He was arrested again Jan. 30, 2010, by Snyder police for possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. And he was arrested at his home Dec. 29, again for possession of marijuana under 2 ounces, and a Scurry County warrant.

In 2008, Billie Jean Dunn’s license to practice nursing in the state was revoked by the Texas Board of Nursing. According to the group’s formal charges, Dunn practiced as a vocational nurse without a license from June 1, 2007, to April 20, 2008, while employed at Cogdell Memorial Hospital in Snyder. Board records indicate her license expired May 31, 2007.

Dunn’s conduct “deceived residents, their families, fellow caregivers and the public,” who believed that her practice of nursing was in compliance with the board’s rules and regulations, according to the board’s findings. Dunn was, according to the board, given an opportunity to show compliance with state law to retain her license.

The case was heard in an open meeting in Austin on Nov. 12, 2008. Dunn did not appear, the record says.

According to tax records, the Dunns still collectively own their home at 1804 Chestnut, which they purchased in November 2001. Clinton Dunn owned 1143 Chestnut until 2008

According to the group’s formal charges, Dunn practiced as a vocational nurse without a license from June 1, 2007, to April 20, 2008, while employed at Cogdell Memorial Hospital in Snyder. Board records indicate her license expired May 31, 2007.

Dunn’s conduct “deceived residents, their families, fellow caregivers and the public,” who believed that her practice of nursing was in compliance with the board’s rules and regulations, according to the board’s findings. Dunn was, according to the board, given an opportunity to show compliance with state law to retain her license.

The case was heard in an open meeting in Austin on Nov. 12, 2008. Dunn did not appear, the record says.

According to tax records, the Dunns still collectively own their home at 1804 Chestnut, which they purchased in November 2001. Clinton Dunn owned 1143 Chestnut until 2008

Thank you Babs!!!!  Now I really don't like the boyfriend and the Mom.  I don't mean to kick her while she is down but if she had checked on her child the moment she heard she went somewhere without permission we might have her back or be on to what did happen!  Seem like ol bf might be more important than her own kids!  Let a 13yo run wild and bad things can happen!  Let an arsehole of a boyfriend move in and cause problems for your kids and bad things can happen!  BD seems so child like, dumb almost and must have very low self esteem!  I go between being very mad at her to feeling sorry for her!  Could she have allowed SA to remove Hailey from their lives so they may live happily ever after?  If nothing is found, no person arrested, no body found, Hailey becomes another statistic and SA moves back in with Mommy to continue life!  I hope this is not the result.  I hope this child has run away and afraid to come home to face what she has done but I really doubt there is a happy ending for her.  God Bless her and keep her safe where ever she is tonight.

I am not speculating or say there is anything wrong with liking scary movies, but if you are obsessed  with them....... that "could" be a sign of a problem.

Vigil Held in Sweetwater For Colorado City Missing Teen

SWEETWATER, Texas -- In Sweetwater, dozens gathered in solidarity with citizens in Colorado City Sunday night to pray for the safe return of Hailey Dunn.

In the parking lot of the First United Methodist Church in Sweetwater, residents held hands and said aloud prayers and well wishes for the missing teen.

A group of mothers organized the event, saying they couldn't make it to Colorado City to help, so they wanted to do something here.

Those gathered also released balloons, in honor of Hailey.

Investigators: Key Players Changing Stories in Dunn Case
Sunday, January 09 2011


Investigators say one of their biggest obstacles right now in tracking down 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has been the family and friends of the missing Colorado City girl.

"The story of some of the key players continues to change even as recently as last night," said Senior Texas DPS Trooper Sparky Dean. "It's very frustrating for law enforcement."

During a news conference Sunday afternoon, Dean elaborated and pointed the finger at those closest to Hailey.

"The family has not been forthcoming in their discernment of the truth," added Dean.

She's like a little lost girl. Her father and his live in girl friend have an infant and I'm sure the baby takes a lot of attention. Her mom worked 12 hr shifts and had a live in BF. It's like she was abandoned.

Yes..the GF couldn't remember if HD had stopped by the house that day because she was tired taking care of the baby and days kind of run together. Also the GF and baby were at one of the interviews.

Right in the middle of posting about Hailey he is talking about a mask??? Are any of these people in touch with reality? And why can't the family say when Hailey went missing? Were/are they all on drugs, or were they so self absorbed they didn't notice her gone?

This is one freaky dude ! No wonder Hailey spent so much time out by the shed...I wouldn't want to be in a house with him either....he posted that he wish someone woud do a picture from the H6 and said haha...I do not watch these scary movies but I think that LE should ....they may find something in there that maybe could give them some insight to SA fantasies...just creepy I tell you.

last night mom first said that boyfriend had been at work, now she says that she never said that but she did..I heard it..pretty sure..or did she say that he got home around 3? anyways..don't believe it..the boyfriend had all day to do something with this child...Mom is very naive and not very bright seems to me...boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend...will eat my words if I am wrong..hope that she did just take off with friends but I don't think so...
::rhino::

Makes you wonder if he did go to work, got fired and took his anger out on the child......just a theory but way too many huge inconstiencies, I can see forgetting small details but these are HUGE IMO. I feel the same way as kids do get snatched but even with the mom being naive, she should still be showing far more emotion, and yeah the BF looks really hinky. When in the world are parents going to out their children FIRST, a PRIORITY and not their damn love life, grrrrrr ::MonkeyMad::

BF being out of work and angry(rage)? reminds me of J.Gardner. Maybe Mom & boyfriend take a lot of Ativan (It was brought up in posts later on, I am just catching up) plus other drugs but Ativan in excess might make one not GiveAS. Hailey was a darling dimpled 13 year old cheerleader. Not the runaway type unless the boyfriend was causing her problems. The bio Dad's girlfriend with the baby...that is pretty ditsy to not remember that day...having a baby is no excuse.

Mods if this is inappropriate please remove:

I found the "cousin"- Corey Norwood also has a current FB. If you look at his "friends" you will find SA's brother "Tyler Adkins". This is the same Tyler that I linked a "myspace" page to in an earlier post pages back. I did not know how old he was at that time.
I am not linking Tyler's FB because he is a minor (16 yrs old) and I am not sure now if it is appropriate or against the rules.

Both FB pages are not private and Tyler talks about Hailey being missing and SA being accused.

Marc Klaas's Blog


Posted January 5, 2011

Until Jan. 3, a week after she disappeared on December 27, 13-year-old Colorado City, TX middle school cheerleader Hailey Dunn was classified as a runaway. Police Chief John Bevins declaration has been parroted by local media, most notably local radio station owner Jim Baum, who told the local NBC affiliate, "To tell you the truth, this is the first time, and I've been here 30 years, that we've had a runaway like this. It's so uncommon”. Calling a missing child a runaway has always been law enforcement’s fallback position. It allows them to defer responsibility and puts the onus of recovery on the shoulders of the family, because runaways are considered a family issue. This action also reflects an exaggerated and distorted sense of what is happening to America’s children. 

A child who seemingly disappears off the face of the earth deserves our attention, not our indifference. Like Ashley Pond, Miranda Gaddis, and Lindsey Baum before her Hailey stepped out of her front door and vanished. She was headed, first to her dad’s house across the street from where she lived with her mom, and then to a girlfriends home to spend the night. She never arrived. 

In McCleary, Washington ten-year-old Lindsey Baum was walking home from her girlfriend’s house on June 26, 2009 and is still missing.  In 2002, on January 9, Oregon City, Oregon resident, twelve-year-old Ashley Pond disappeared after leaving for school. Her friend and schoolmate thirteen-year-old Miranda Gaddis vanished from the same location two months later, on May 8. Neighbor Ward Weaver was arrested on August 13. Ashley’s body was found buried under a concrete slab in Weaver’s back yard. Miranda was found in a box in his tool shed. Like his father before him, Ward Weaver sits on death row awaiting an execution that will never occur.

 Hailey Dunn’s family, friends, school, teachers and other kids parents are the only thing that given this case traction. They took a stand and said, “Not in our community.” A temporary search center was established at the Colorado City Middle School cafeteria for volunteers wanting to help. They have saturated the community with thousands of flyers. An estimated 750 people, out of a population of 2,500 turned out for a prayer vigil on the evening of Jan. 2. An anonymous reward that began at $1,000 for Hailey’s safe return has now been raised to $25,000. Members of the community created a Facebook page for Hailey, and many others, including me, have put photos of Hailey in their profile pictures. 

The Police Chief said that all of the evidence points to Hailey being a runaway. However, there is no evidence, and his declaration is based solely upon statistics. She didn’t tell any of her friends that she was going to run away. She hadn’t threatened her parents that she was going to run away. Nobody saw her run away. She didn’t take anything with her. She had never before runaway. Thirteen-year-old Hailey Dunn was classified as a runaway due to a total lack of evidence, not the preponderance of evidence.

According to the National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway and Throwaway Children (NISMART-2), considered to be the definitive publication on missing child statistics, “The total number of children who were missing from their caretakers in 1999, including children who were reported missing is estimated to be 797,500”. Of these 357,600 (45%) were runaway/throwaway situations. Therefore, if you conclude that a missing child has runaway you will be right about half the time. But, that does not mean that you turn your back on those children. Given what we know about violence in America and the challenges that our kids face, it is our duty as responsible adults to recover and help kids who have run away or thrown out of their homes.

Hailey Darlene Dunn
Texas Teen Vanishes Into Thin Air Days After Christmas
Hailey Dunn was said to be spending the night at a friend’s house on the evening of Monday, Dec. 27, 2010. But when the 13-year-old didn’t come home the next morning, Billie Dunn – Hailey’s mother – knew something was wrong. Cops say she immediately filed a missing persons report after learning Hailey’s friend wasn’t even expecting her as a visitor.

“From the start, our department and our colleagues from other law enforcement and judicial agencies that have joined our effort have treated Hailey’s case as one of a missing person,” said Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer. “We’ve made no assumptions as to what occurred, intentionally focusing on rapidly collecting facts and using these facts to guide our work.”

Police say alerts were also distributed to both the NCIC and TCIC systems, computer networks established to link law enforcement personnel across the country and throughout Texas, respectively.

“We’re applying all personnel and other resources necessary and appropriate to our work in finding Hailey, with no plans of letting up,” Kampfer said. “This is a night-and-day endeavor for us all.”


Now the Colorado City Police has even enlisted the help of the Texas Rangers to help locate the missing 13-year-old cheerleader. Cops tell AMW that they are also conducting a thorough and ongoing investigation of people and places in the immediate area of Hailey’s house, including all registered sex offenders in the city

(snip)

In such a small town, I am curious as to how many they came up with.

OMG!!!!
I am not sure if y'all have seen this or not but it was mentioned on the find Hailey facebook. He has been a member for 5 years or so to the following link at "Michael My". I am not speculating or say there is anything wrong with liking scary movies, but if you are obsessed  with them....... that "could" be a sign of a problem.

Anyway, check this out:

I noticed that too. It could be that it was just he logged off prior to seeing that message but it sure is a strange time for it to happen. I really am not bothered by the membership in that board. I happen to love Stephen King - I am pretty sure I have not murdered anyone. the fact that he logged off when he did is much more interesting in my book.

I find it interesting that the minute someone asked about the failed poly he stopped posting.

Ok - so I joined and wandered around the Michael Myers site - This post creeped me out more than anything I saw - it is from a thread called "The collector movie mold mask"

Man I love that movie and especially the mask....but I hear its a bit to small...I like my masks to fit my head in case I want to take pics and what not...Hopefully someone else will put out a bigger version of it. But ur one lucky S.O.B to have that mask man. Best of luck bro!!! :wink: :D

I am not sure anyone remembers the movie but here is the entry from Wiki:
"Clegg is obsessed with Miranda Grey, a middle-class art student at the Slade School of Fine Art. He admires her from a distance, but is unable to make any contact with her because of his nonexistent social skills. One day, he wins a large prize in the British football pools. This makes it possible for him to stop working and buy an isolated house in the countryside. He feels lonely, however, and wants to be with Miranda. Unable to make any normal contact, Clegg decides to add her to his 'collection' of pretty, petrified objects, in hopes that if he keeps her captive long enough, she will grow to love him. After careful preparations, he kidnaps Miranda by drugging her with chloroform and locks her up in the cellar of his house. He is convinced that Miranda will start to love him after some time. However, when she wakes up, she confronts him with his actions. Clegg is embarrassed, and promises to let her go after a month. He promises to show her "every respect", pledging not to sexually molest her and to shower her with gifts and the comforts of home, on one condition: she can't leave the cellar."

Thank you for the snip from wiki, but would you please include the link?  We're supposed to link articles, quotes and etc. that are brought to Scared Monkeys from other sites.  MB

Bingo Babskats!
  When I read there weren't computers in the home, my mind went right to cell phones.  Some of the smart phones, like the iphone, droid and etc. are little computers, and don't need an internet connection/wi fi to use.  Facebook & myspace could be easily accessed and updated anywhere, anytime imo.  Even if Hailey didn't have her own smart phone, there could be other friends that have them that she can use to update her myspace.

I'm going to guess they are talking about the new mask  http://www.halloweenmovies.com/latestnews/2010/09/all-new-officially-licensed-michael-myers-mask/   They appear to be discussing the Halloween/Michael Myers movies, the first and best being the 1978 movie Halloween, with Jamie Lee Curtis.

Wonder what he means by ur mom said shes not mad?  I guess just an assumption on his part from talking to her Mom?  Was there a blow out at home the night before or something?  Was Hailey even home the night before? Who would really know?  Mom and BF wouldn't and brother spent the night before Hailey went missing with a friend. Just posting this FB via mobile phone site from another Adkins.  How many Adkins are there and how are they related?  This young man doesn't mention missing HD till 2 or 3 days after the 28th.  Wonder what rumors are going around school about this?  I'm thinkin the whole "SA tell mom I'm going to spend the night with MaryBeth" thing isn't made up!  Maybe they don't even know which day she went missing.  How long had the brother been at his friends?  Was he asked by his friend to stay over or did Mom send him and which day did he go?  Something smells real bad here!

Two Weeks Later: Still No Sign of Hailey Dunn  (with video)

Colorado City, TX - Monday marks what investigators believe is two weeks since 13-year-old Hailey Dunn vanished in Colorado City. But at this point, they aren't so sure their timeline is accurate.
“The family has not been forthcoming," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean. "Their discernment of the truth continues to change. It's very frustrating."

Hailey's mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, claims to be the last person to see the teen before she vanished from her home in Colorado City, a small town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland. Adkins said on the afternoon of Monday, December 27, Hailey told him she was going to stop by her dad's house before staying at a friend's home that evening. She left the home and hasn't been spotted since.

"At this point, we aren't positive if she went missing Sunday, Monday, or even Tuesday," Dean said during a news conference Sunday.

One thing that is for sure: Hailey's mother Billie Dunn reported her missing Tuesday, December 28. Thirteen days into the investigation, authorities say they have yet to discover evidence of foul play and it appears Hailey is hiding and doesn't want to be found.

"I'm confident we'll find Hailey," said Dean. "I don't think Hailey wants to be found. I believe she's hiding. She's probably scared at this point. We're going to find her."

Dean tells KTAB News Billie Dunn was asked additional questions over the weekend by investigators. Billie Dunn also told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro that she was asked to take another polygraph test. She went on to say she's not sure if she'll take it because she's frustrated with the system. Billie Dunn claims both she and her boyfriend Shawn Adkins failed their polygraph tests last week. Investigators say they never revealed results of the testing to Dunn or Adkins.

Dean told the media twelve agencies are involved in the search for Hailey. After canvassing Hailey's Colorado City neighborhood and doing a thorough search of the town of Dunn over the weekend, authorities are now primarily following up on leads.

The latest lead to surface involves two girls investigators are asking to come forward who might have key information regarding Hailey's whereabouts. Over the weekend, a new witness told authorities that he or she spotted Hailey walking with two other girls in the 200 block of Manuel Street in Colorado City. The witness couldn't recall whether she spotted the trio on Sunday, December 26 or Monday, December 27. The witness recalls seeing the girls between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

"These girls are not suspects," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean. "These girls may not realize that they have some very valuable information."

Meanwhile, volunteers continue to organize searches in hopes of finding Hailey hiding in rural, wooded areas. According to the "Help Find Hailey Dunn" Facebook page, a search was planned for early Monday morning in Coahoma. People interested in searching planned to meet at the volunteer fire department.

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, hundreds of people took part in grassroots searches in-and-around Colorado City. Law enforcement says they're not directly involved with these searches and they appreciate the efforts of the volunteers.

At last check, the elite search group Texas Equusearch was one standby to come assist with the investigation. TES says they were requested to come help by the Dunn family. On Friday, TES told KTAB News they were speaking with authorities about how they might be able to help out.

Officials now say the information that leads to Hailey's safe return is $15,000. They previously estimated much higher at $25,000.

We Need to Rely on God, Hailey's Pastor Says  (with video)

As the disappearance of Hailey Dunn reaches the two-week point, prayer is more important than ever, said Bobby Matlock, pastor of Christian Temple, the church Hailey attended.

"The only thing that's going to bring strength is prayer," Matlock said.

Hailey was last seen on Dec. 27 at her home in Colorado City, and with each passing day risk losing hope.

"This whole community needs to rely on God to bring a closure to this deal."

As Hailey's Wednesday night youth group continued without her for a second week, her youth leader encouraged the kids to make cards for Hailey's parents.

"I said, whatever comes to their mind, speak out of their heart," Scott Free said.

People are turning to Facebook to make their prayers for Hailey public.

"I pray for those searching to bring you home Hailey," one woman wrote on the Find Hailey Dunn Facebook page.  "I pray that they stay warm and out of harms way."

Others are leaving scripture passages, such as "The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed a stronghold in times of trouble."

Hailey Dunn Searchers Hold Candlelight Vigil

COAHOMA - Hundreds of searchers for Hailey Dunn gathered in Coahoma Sunday night to hold a candlelight vigil in support of her safe return.

So many lives have been touched by the efforts to find and bring Hailey home.

And when the search can't carry on for the day, West Texans in Coahoma kept up their support with candlelight.

"All these different towns are joining together with one common goal and that's to find this girl," volunteer Kevin Walker, said.

Music was played, hands were held and prayers were said.

For the volunteer searchers in Coahoma, this was a time to build up the one feeling that's been keeping them going after days of no results.

"Some hope and just to bring us together and to give us a way to pray and just give us some strength, and bring us together as a community," Heather Maddox, one of the organizers of the vigil, said.

When NewsWest 9 arrived in Coahoma before the vigil began, the 20 volunteers setting up swelled to more than 100 in 10 minutes time.

By the end of the night, candles were held by around 300 people.

"Just speaking to God today," Hailey's cousin, Machelle Barr, said. "I really think he's going to bring her home to us. I believe that."

The Salvation Army of Big Spring has been with these volunteers since Saturday giving them food and drinks while they search.

And they say they'll stay as long as they are needed.

"If it's just three or four we'll still be here," Captain Terrie Cheshire, with the Big Spring Salvation Army, said. "We have a truck that we can bring instead of our canteen and we can serve out of it. People give us money and this is their money in action."

When the sun rises on Monday, many of these people will be on the lookout again, searching wherever they haven't already.

But on this night, hundreds of candles glowed in a sign that they wouldn't give up, hoping no one else does either.

NewsWest 9 has also heard rumors that the body of Hailey Dunn was found somewhere between Coahoma and Colorado City. NewsWest 9 called DPS Trooper Sparky Dean and he has officially shut down those rumors, saying they haven't heard or seen any evidence of that.

Official, trooper to discuss 'lead' in missing Colorado City teen's case with students today

Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper Sparky Dean said he plans on accompanying Pete Kampfer, city manager and Colorado City police department spokesman, at 8 a.m. Monday to the district’s middle school to address students about the disappearance of missing teen Hailey Dunn.

Kampfer and Dean plan also to speak at the high school, he said Sunday.

The address will refer to a lead received by a witness who saw Hailey walking with two girls the afternoon of either Dec. 26 or Dec. 27. The witness who confirmed seeing Hailey, however, was unsure of who the two other girls were. They were seen walking east in the 200 block of Manuel Street in Colorado City, which is less than a quarter mile from Hailey’s home.

Speaking with the two girls seen with Hailey may lead authorities to important information about where Hailey could be.

Dean said $15,000 is currently in hand to reward anyone with information that leads to Hailey’s safe return.

I can't shake the feeling that something happened with her friends, maybe a fight over a boyfriend and it got out of hand? I hope she is just hiding out and a friend may know all about it and is afraid to talk.

All her posts on her FB and Myspace say posted from iPhone.  No one has mentioned where the iPhone is now.  I am hoping LE is on top of this but from what I have read I do not think so some how.  The iPhone has a built in GPS chip so they could find the phone I would hope.

Reading back on her FB there is nothing to indicate she would run away.  She was excited about having a baby shower for her little sister, looking after the twins while her Aunt and Uncle were Christmas shopping and just being a kid.

She Doesn'tread?  Good Lord. Her wall said book, don't read. Perhaps that is the biggest problem in the the generation, they weren't read to or even encouraged to read anything, a book or a magazine. Good Lord. I never heard of anyone, that did not read. I read the newspaper as a child, because we were encouraged at school to read the paper. She knew how to read,

Somebody on WS made a comment about a comment on Hailey's FB, about a beatdown with some girls. For the life of me I do not see it anywhere. If that is true, and what exactly would be considered a beatdown by a girl that young, that is why I'm wondering if perhaps a fight happened and things got out of control?

Maybe mom didn't leave Hailey lunch money or some other reason that she had to ask bf...maybe mom was at work, Hailey was going somewhere, needed money..I don't find that so unusual since the bf lived there with the family..could be a simple reason of why bf gave her money vs mom..dunno.

She Doesn'tread?  Good Lord. Her wall said book, don't read. Perhaps that is the biggest problem in the the generation, they weren't read to or even encouraged to read anything, a book or a magazine. Good Lord. I never heard of anyone, that did not read. I read the newspaper as a child, because we were encouraged at school to read the paper. She knew how to read,
but did not know the fun of reading, I suppose.


Perhaps Hailey doesn't read for pleasure.  I know some adults and teens that are very capable of reading, but they just don't enjoy it and would note "don't read".   In my household, we are all readers, including newspapers, library, internet and etc.  But I have family members outside my household that haven't been to a library in years, don't take a daily paper, never even pick up a paperback and they are able to read.  They just don't read unless there's a need.  I read everything, including cereal boxes  ::MonkeyWink::

I am even wondering if she has a boyfriend that is older and they may have took off, and the fact he is older and could get into major trouble. Because when you look at her FB comments there is a guy she loves on there.

Somebody on WS made a comment about a comment on Hailey's FB, about a beatdown with some girls. For the life of me I do not see it anywhere. If that is true, and what exactly would be considered a beatdown by a girl that young, that is why I'm wondering if perhaps a fight happened and things got out of control?

I would assume that investigators have determined whether the truth was forthcoming regarding Mary Beth's claim of no contact with Hailey on Monday, December 27th.

GRACE: What did this woman see?

B. DUNN:  She saw Hailey, Mary Beth and a boy that she didn`t recognize.

GRACE: Now have you -- have you spoken with Mary Beth? Did that in fact happen?

B. DUNN: I hadn`t asked her about that. I`m letting the police handle Mary Beth. I do call her to ask her hey, what did Hailey say to you on Monday, did she call you Monday, did you guys text, did she say she was going somewhere else Monday, or with another friend Monday, and she tells me no.

GRACE: Did she say she even saw Hailey on Monday?

B. DUNN: She hasn`t told me that she did. No.

GRACE: OK. So to your knowledge, Hailey never went to Mary Beth`s?

B. DUNN: Right. That`s what she says.

So they`re looking at that video surveillance, too, seeing if that story checks out, see if they can put her somewhere that evening.

BREAKING: Hailey Dunn's Parents Submit DNA Samples

Investigators are following leads of "possible criminal intent" in the disappearance of Hailey Dunn, Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean said this morning.

This comes after Sunday's news conference in which Dean said investigators hadn't found evidence of foul play.
"I'm confident we'll find Hailey," Dean said on Sunday. "I don't think Hailey wants to be found. I believe she's hiding. She's probably scared at this point. We're going to find her."

Their primary mission has been to find Hailey "standing up," he said.

In the event she is found deceased, Hailey's parents, Clint Dunn and Billie Dunn, have submitted DNA samples, Dean confirmed.  Those will be used to identify remains.

If any evidence in the case is uncovered, that will not be shared with the public, Dean said on Sunday.

DPS: Confident missing Colorado City teen alive and hiding

Investigators searching for information about the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City are conducting interviews with two girls who were seen with Dunn around the time she vanished.

The identities of the girls were discovered this morning after Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper Sparky Dean and Pete Kampfer, city manager for Colorado City, met with middle school students at 8 a.m. to discuss Dunn’s disappearance.

Dean and Kampfer asked Colorado Middle School sixth grade students if they had any information about the two girls who were seen walking east with Dunn in the 200 block of Manuel Street in Colorado City on either Dec. 26 or Dec. 27. Dunn disappeared Dec. 27 after reportedly telling her mother’s live-in boyfriend that she was going to spend the night with a friend.

Dean said they received the names of the two girls after meeting with sixth grade students. The girls previously had been asked generic questions by investigators, and Dean said they would be questioned again to see if they might have any information about where Dunn was going or where she may be.

Dean and Kampfer were planning to meet with high school students later this morning but canceled the meeting after receiving the information from middle school students.

After meeting with sixth grade students, Dean, Kampfer and Texas Ranger Scott Stevenson met with seventh and eighth grade students.

Dean told the students he is confident that Hailey is alive but in hiding, and he asked them to thank police officers for their work when they see them around town.

“I kind of feel like we’re playing hide and seek with no boundaries,” Dean said.

Dean said the city is still a safe place, but he said he understood that they might be afraid for Hailey because he, too, was worried about her.

“We’re all here for Hailey, and we’re going to find Hailey,” Dean said.

If Hailey is hiding someplace, I'm thinking it must be in another city? And if she is in the city she lives in, who in the world would be hiding her? If it is one of her young friends you would think by now one of the parents would find her in the house.

If Hailey had been threatened with "possible criminal intent" ... I believe she would have sought protection/confided with a family member ... an extended family member and/or ... friends ... not runaway.

As dysfunctional as this family appears ... this little girl was not alone.  There was her mother, father, brother and grandmothers who have reached out with love to Hailey through the media since her disappearance.

I suspect that harm has come to Hailey.  I speculate that either her mother's boyfriend has involvement or ... there was an altercation with one of her peers.  IMO

Ipods also have internet capabilities and she can access the internet with the ipod if she was somewhere that has wifi/router and an ipod has gps built in. Did she take this with her? If so they can possibly track down if it isnt dead.

Reward raised to $15,450

The reward for information leading to the safe return of Hailey Dunn has been raised to $15,450, according to the Colorado City Police Department.

Authorities continue to search for the missing 13-year-old, who is still listed as a runaway based on evidence and information to date.

Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper Phillip "Sparky" Dean met with middle school students at Colorado Middle School Monday morning, January 10 to ask for help in locating two girls thought to have been with Hailey on Monday, December 27.

"They're not in trouble. We just want to talk with them about Hailey's state of mind," Dean said. "What she was thinking, if she had plans to meet somebody."

"We know she could be scared. I'm scared for her," Dean said, telling the students he hoped Hailey was "playing hide and seek."

Dean also reassured students that Colorado City was still a safe place.

"It's no different than it was two weeks ago. It's as safe as it has been and we're going to keep it that way," he said.

Two Weeks Later: Still No Sign of Hailey Dunn
Monday, January 10 2011


Colorado City, TX—Monday marks what investigators believe is two weeks since Hailey Dunn, 13, vanished in Colorado City. 

Now, however, they aren't so sure that time line is accurate.

"The family has not been forthcoming," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean. "Their discernment of the truth continues to change.  It's very frustrating."

Hailey's mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, claims to be the last person to see the teen before she vanished from her home in Colorado City, a small town of 4,000, located halfway between Abilene and Midland. Adkins said on the afternoon of Monday, Dec. 27, Hailey told him she was going to stop by her dad's house before staying at a friend's home that evening. She left the home and hasn't been spotted since.

"At this point, we aren't positive if she went missing (on that) Sunday, Monday, or even Tuesday," Dean said during a news conference on Jan. 9.
 
One thing that is for sure – Hailey's mother Billie Dunn reported her missing Tuesday, Dec. 28. Thirteen days into the investigation, authorities say they have yet to discover evidence of foul play, and it appears Hailey is hiding and doesn't want to be found.

"I'm confident we'll find Hailey," said Dean. "I don't think Hailey wants to be found. I believe she's hiding. She's probably scared at this point. We're going to find her."

Dean tells KTAB News Billie Dunn was asked additional questions over the weekend by investigators. Billie Dunn also told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro that she was asked to take another polygraph test. She went on to say she's not sure if she'll take it because she's frustrated with the system. Billie Dunn claims both she and her boyfriend Shawn Adkins failed their polygraph tests last week. Investigators say they never revealed results of the testing to Dunn or Adkins.

Dean told the media that 12 agencies are involved in the search for Hailey. After canvassing Hailey's Colorado City neighborhood and doing a thorough search of the town of Dunn over the weekend, authorities are now primarily following up on leads.

The latest lead to surface involves two girls investigators are asking to come forward who might have key information regarding Hailey's whereabouts. Over the weekend, a new witness told authorities that he or she spotted Hailey walking with two other girls in the 200 block of Manuel Street in Colorado City. The witness couldn't recall whether she spotted the trio on Sunday, December 26 or Monday, December 27. The witness recalls seeing the girls between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

"These girls are not suspects," said Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean. "These girls may not realize that they have some very valuable information."

Meanwhile, volunteers continue to organize searches in hopes of finding Hailey hiding in rural, wooded areas. According to the "Help Find Hailey Dunn" Facebook page, a search was planned for early Monday morning in Coahoma. People interested in searching planned to meet at the volunteer fire department.

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, hundreds of people took part in grassroots searches in and around Colorado City. Law enforcement says they're not directly involved with these searches and they appreciate the efforts of the volunteers.

At last check, the elite search group Texas Equusearch was one standby to come assist with the investigation. TES says they were requested to come help by the Dunn family. On Friday, TES told KTAB News they were speaking with authorities about how they might be able to help out.

Officials now say the information that leads to Hailey's safe return is $15,000. They previously estimated much higher at $25,000.

My daughter ran away when she was 13 (she is now a very responsible 35 yr old). She had a girlfriend whose father had to be out of town all the time and there was no mother around. This girl had an older sister that was suppose to be babysitting but she did not do a very good job of it. My daughter wanted to go to this party the girls were throwing. I said no because I knew it was going to be an unsupervised party. About 4 in the morning something woke me out of a dead sleep. I got up to investigate, looked all around saw nothing, kids all in bed that sort of thing. So I went to the bathroom, when I walked past the back door coming out of the bathroom the wind blew the back door open. (bout p'd my pants). I looked out on the back porch and around the yard and saw nothing. I went back again to check on my daughters. When I bent over Brandi's bed I noticed she was rather lumpy. Of course when I pulled the covers back she was not there. I immediately called the cops. We all pretty much knew this was a runaway situation. They went to the 2 friends I knew she would have went to. Of course the people throwing the party said she was not there. With all the underage drinking going on at that home the cops kinda got sidetracked and started sending kids home and calling parents of who were there. To make a long story short, I found her 2 1/2 days later. She had been at this other girls house the whole time. I found her in the park when the girls made her leave because the dad was suppose to be coming home and they knew they were in some deep do do.  Didn't know whether to hug her or knock her socks off. I thank God to this day it ended the way it did.

Yep I wouldn't want to be SA neighbor let alone live in the same house with him....wouldn't blame Hailey a bit if she ran away but if that were the case then you would think that all of the families stories would be right on target and that all of the lie detector tests would have been passed after all there would be no reason to lie or be nervous right? I am very concerned that harm has come to Hailey...I hope that I am wrong.

HAHAHAHA I ran away when I was about 15. I left my parents a note saying exactly where I was going. I wanted to go to town with my girlfriend and we lived way out in the country. I walked about 6 miles to her house and then we walked another 4 to get into town. My poor mom and dad.

Monday, 4 p.m.
The two girls who authorities interviewed this afternoon say they played basketball with Hailey sometime prior to her disappearance.

Monday, 2 p.m.
Investigators are interviewing two students at Colorado Middle School this afternoon to see if they are the ones spotted with Dunn before her disappearance.

A new witness came forward over the weekend and told authorities that he or she spotted Hailey walking with two other girls in the 200 block of Manuel Street in Colorado City.  The witness cannot recall if it was on Sunday, Dec. 26 or Monday, Dec. 27.

Police said this afternoon that they aren't sure if the girls being interviewed are the same ones spotted, but are hopeful that students will come forward with clues that can aid in the investigation.


Monday, 10:15 a.m.
Police and school administrators are pleading with the students of Colorado Middle School to come forward with any information about Hailey Dunn, after a witness reported seeing the missing 13-year-old walking with two girls.

The witness does not remember whether he or she saw them on Dec. 26 or 27.

Senior DPS Trooper Sparky Dean, city manager Pete Kampfer, and principal Mark Merrell didn't mention the two girls at Monday's 8 a.m. assembly, but assured the student body that if anyone had any information about Hailey, that person would not be in trouble.

"Even if it's just a little bit of information, you might not think it's important, but it might be a missing piece of the puzzle," Dean told the students.

Colorado Middle School handed over surveillance video to investigators today that shows Hailey walking through the halls of the school.  The video is very grainy, but investigators hope to digitally remaster it and get a better idea of what hailey looked like.

Law enforcement expanding investigation

In a press conference held Monday afternoon at 4 p.m., City Manager Pete Kampfer indicated that law enforcement agents are focusing on multiple leads and in various directions in the case of the 13-year-old Hailey Dunn at this time.

DNA samples have been taken from several people and many Colorado Middle School students have also been interviewed. Authorities are using every means possible to find Hailey, and over 100 billboards across Texas feature the missing girl. Billboards may also be a tool put in use in Arizona and New Mexico.

"Law enforcement agencies are focusing on multimple directions," Kampfer said at the press conference. He also said that "some if not most (of the directions) might be on the criminal side."

According to Kampfer, the Texas Rangers are moving fast toward a definite direction for the investigation, and some of the leads being investigated are in the immediate proximity and some are out of state.

Kampfer also expressed gratitude to the cities of Big Spring and Sweetwater for sending in police officers to go on routine patrol, freeing up Colorado City's police officers to work on the Dunn's case.

No shock here, I stated from the get - go that she (BD) didn't seem emotional enough to me, but I did consider that it was possibly drugs that dulled her affect and then  ::MonkeyEek:: of LE's initial reaction, now I am starting to really wonder. That being said I could see this as a runaway as we've heard she didn't like SA and she posted on MS how unhappy she was about her dad having another child, IIRC she wrote he has 4 he can't support and I can also see a perp abducting her, crazy case.

::MonkeyEek::
What does "some if not most (of the directions) might be on the criminal side" mean?

I don't know.  This has been very confusing from the start.  

Are the reporters are confusing us?  This happened before  with misinformation. I read the "two girls" were playing basketball with HD, IDK when or where they played.  I read that on I.S. or the other site.

L.E may be giving misenformation, too, to throw the culprit off track.  Punks? How does a woman with a darling daughter, have the fudging nerve, to invite a punk to live into the house?

The mom said, BF's aunt picked him up.  Does this mean BF didn't have a car?

(Bolded by me)
seahorse, are you able to provide a link for this?  It helps a lot to avoid confusion or misinformation.  Thanks.  MuffyBee

::MonkeyEek:: ::MonkeyShocked::

What on earth is going on?


No shock here, I stated from the get - go that she (BD) didn't seem emotional enough to me, but I did consider that it was possibly drugs that dulled her affect and then  ::MonkeyEek:: of LE's initial reaction, now I am starting to really wonder. That being said I could see this as a runaway as we've heard she didn't like SA and she posted on MS how unhappy she was about her dad having another child, IIRC she wrote he has 4 he can't support and I can also see a perp abducting her, crazy case.

BF said "I did not do anything to that girl". Where did we hear that before? (Needs a link, please.  MuffyBee)

1/10/11 Update, 6:30 p.m.: Officials say they are working more than 100 leads as they continue to look for Hailey. Some of those leads have come from out of state. DPS says Hailey's parents also provided DNA samples as part of the investigation. A press release from DPS clarified earlier statements that had been made to the media about Hailey. DPS says there is no evidence to support claims that Hailey is a runaway or is hiding. They are treating the case as a criminal investigation. DPS also says they are going to only hold press updates on Monday, Wednesday and Friday instead of everyday.

SHAWN ADKINS, MISSING TEEN CHEERLEADER MOM`S BOYFRIEND: I love her with all my heart.

ADKINS: I would never do nothing to hurt her. UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Shawn told me that he actually got home at about 3:00, and Hailey left the house at about 3:15.

DUNN: He had been at his mother`s house all day Monday.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: But (INAUDIBLE) being raised on Shawn.

I can't find any bus station/ bus stop in Colorado City.  There are some in nearby cities.  If Hailey did run away, got enough money for Christmas and bought a bus ticket, she would have had to get a ride to get to the bus.  Maybe someone else can find a bus from Colorado City.  She could have gotten a ride from a trucker or from someone passing through also.  I don't know.

http://www.reporternews.com/news/2011/jan/10/officials-teenager-likely-a-runaway/

Clint said the couple had plans for Hailey to move in with him in the future, yet had no comment as to why. “I had to work hard to get to be a half a block away so I could see her from my back door,” he said. “I tried to stay as close to her as I could.”

My question is WHY> he states she was happy at home and from the local chatter it seems she wasn't so happy, so why the need to be so close he could see her from his back door.....and again if she were so happy, why would she want to move in with her dad. I simply do not buy that all was well at home, and that she did have issues with SA.

my personal opinion is that I don't think that mom or bio dad had anything to do with Hailey's disappearance..I think that they are maybe not the "brightest" but I think that they love their daughter..
the boyfriend bothers me...
but another thing, the mom and boyfriend have been dating for over 2 yrs and he had just moved into the home in the last 4 months..then Hailey goes missing. If he wanted to harm her, couldn't he have done it before now? or, was he pissy still when he got home after his altercation at work and Hailey smarted off to him and he lost his temper and hurt her? anything could have happened to her..  I am still not buying the boyfriends story.

just to add, would it have been more believable if BF would have just said, I dunno, I haven't seen her all day instead of specifically mentioning that she said that she was going to her dad's house and then spending the night at Mary Beths?  And wouldn't most BFs or someone who isn't in charge say to the child, you better call mom and see if that is ok if you do that?

i wonder when Billie (Mom) actually "last" saw her daughter. Hailey sleeps over at Dad's on Saturday night, and goes back home sometime Sunday.Did she check on her before leaving for work on Monday morning? If Billie worked a 12 hour shift (7A-7P) and Shawn had a blowup at work leaving at 6:30 AM, how did Billie get to work? Would he have dropped her off 30-45 minutes before her shift started at 7 AM? I am getting confused, I will need to go back and read what Billie said on the NG transcripts but I thought I remembered her saying that Shawn picked her up that evening (Monday) at 7. How did she get to the Colorado Pd on Tuesday when realizing Hailley was missing?

On December 27, 2010 ... Haily Dunn's last known contact is her mother's live-in boyfriend ... Shawn Adkins.

On January 3 ... Billie Dunn was under the impression that Shawn returned from work at 3:00 PM on December 27, 2010 and had a short connection with Hailey.

On January 4 ... Billie Dunn changes the story.  Shawn did not arrive home at 3:00 PM December 27th from work.  He had been fired that morning and had spent the day at his mothers.

Considering a fired Shawn was not at work on the morning of December 28th ... what was he doing when Billie contacted him re her missing daughter?

DUNN: She went missing on Monday while I was at work. My boyfriend - - he came home from work about 3:00 -- or he got to my house about 3:00. And he`s seen Hailey. Hailey was there. She told him, I`m running across the street to my dad`s house for a few minutes but I`m going Mary Beth`s, and I`m staying the night there. Let my mom know.

So that evening when he picked me up from work, we got home, we were getting ready for bed. I didn`t get worried when I hadn`t heard from Hailey. I thought she was at Mary Beth`s. I was kind of upset that she didn`t call and confirm it with me, but not worried at that point.

Tuesday, I was at work again, I left my cell phone at home for my kids to use when I`m working. So Tuesday, I called my son. I said tell Hailey text the little girl, her friend, tell Hailey she needs to go ahead and get home. This was around lunch. My son called me back within a few minutes and she said, mom, she said Hailey never made it over there. She never spent the night.

So at that point I called Hailey`s dad and found out she didn`t over there and she didn`t stay the night with him. I left from work and went to the police station in Colorado City and reported her missing.

BILLIE DUNN: No, I said that. He went in Monday morning, but there was an argument. He was fired or there was just a big blow-up there. He walked out. He left his job by 6:30 in the morning and went to Big Spring (ph) to his mom`s house.

MICHAEL BOARD, WOAI NEWSRADIO:  Now, earlier in that day, we had a neighbor confirm that she saw Hailey in the back yard speaking on some sort of a phone. We don`t know if that`s a home phone or a cell phone. ...

GRACE: I want to go back to Billie Dunn. I understand police have seized yours and your boyfriend`s cell phones. Why?

BILLIE DUNN: Yes. They`re taking them to check out all the calls that were made on Monday. Hailey did have my cell phone at home and access to it. That would have been the cell phone she was on. She didn`t use Shawn`s cell phone, but they`re checking them both, getting the records off of both of those. And hopefully, we`re going to have answers from the cell phones tonight.

GRACE: OK. So this has nothing to do with you being under any kind of suspicion at all. This has to do with the fact that your little girl and you shared a cell phone, and they`re trying to figure out who she was calling and who was calling her, correct?

BILLIE DUNN: Correct. I left the cell phone at home while I was at work, for the kids.

On December 27, 2010 ... Haily Dunn's last known contact is her mother's live-in boyfriend ... Shawn Adkins.

On January 3 ... Billie Dunn was under the impression that Shawn returned from work at 3:00 PM on December 27, 2010 and had a short connection with Hailey.

On January 4 ... Billie Dunn changes the story.  Shawn did not arrive home at 3:00 PM December 27th from work.  He had been fired that morning and had spent the day at his mothers.

well , the guy on NG tonite said that LE said that she could have got on I20 and headed to New Mexico or maybe even Arizona? I don't think so but apparently they do ....I wonder why they are leaning to that direction verses towards the Ft.Worth ...Dallas area after all trucks run both ways...I was looking at the cousin of SA myspace and noticed that his profile says that he is from Lovington New Mexico and he is 19....scroll down and it says that he went to a tech school in sweetwater tx in 2008 that is only about 40 miles from Colorado City. According to BD she has been dating SA for about 3 years so she would have been around in 2008 and Hailey could have met this cousin....I wonder if there was any calls on the cell phones to New Mexico.....also not that it matters scrolling to the very bottom of the page where the pets are purchased the cousin bought Billie as a pet and it has a picture of her and Shawn with a quote underneath it that reads Shawns dirty lil woman or someething like that.Anyway just wondering why they think that she may be in Mexico...any thoughts on this?

Missing teen's parents speak to NewsChannel 11; Pray for daughter's safe return
January 10, 2011

3-year-old Hailey Dunn is still missing. On Monday investigators were following up on leads around Colorado City. Hailey's mother and father spoke to NewsChannel 11 for the first time on Monday.

DPS Trooper Sparky Dean was quoted in other reports as saying they're confident Hailey is alive and hiding. Monday he clarified saying that while he hopes that is the case, there is no evidence that Hailey is hiding.

Authorities went to Hailey's middle school on Monday to speak with two girls reportedly seen with her near the time of her disappearance. Authorities confirmed they did talk with students, but wouldn't release whether they were the students they were looking for.

Hailey's parents say they hope tips continue to come in. They say it could be exactly what investigators need to bring their daughter home. "Even if you think it wasn't a big deal or its not important, it may be, it may be what investigators are looking for," said Hailey's mother Billie.

"I'm not going quit searching and I'm going do everything I can to make this bigger and more worldwide until she's found," said her father Clint.

After 2 weeks have passed, her parents say the last thing they want is for the public to forget about their little girl. "It's tough when we don't have any new news that we can say but I appreciate people keeping my daughters face up there on the news," said Billie.

In Monday's latest press release, authorities announced they had no new information to report. They did say there were over 100 billboards across the state with Hailey's information and picture. Investigators say that may be better than an amber alert, which doesn't have pictures.

The family says optimism comes and goes; but they're confident authorities will find their daughter. "I'm really scared for her my gut feeling goes worse after each night goes by," said Clint.

"We hope for the best but we still fear for the worst we have our moments when we break down and we can't be strong anywhere," Billie said.

Even though there were no major updates on Monday, Colorado City city manager Pete

Kampfer says the investigation is heating up. "They're focusing on multiple leads that go in different directions; and they're continuing to build leads and so they've got a ton working."

"God gave Hailey to me and to Clint. She's our daughter. We want her back, we love her and she's just a 13 year old little girl," Billie said.

Authorities encourage anyone with information to call the Colorado City police department at (325)-728-5294 or 1-800-The-Lost.

Hailey's Mother Defends Her Credibility On Nancy Grace Show
January 10, 2011

ABILENE, Texas -- Hailey Dunn's mother, Billie Dunn, appeared again Monday night on the "Nancy Grace" show on the HLN network.

Grace continued to grill the mom about her statement last week that she was told she failed a polygraph test.

When we looked into that allegation last week, investigators told KTXS News neither the mother nor the boyfriend were informed about the results of their polygraph tests.

Monday night, Grace told Billie Dunn some people investigating the case are saying she is not a credible witness. Dunn told Grace she is not a liar.

Authorities Pursue Criminal and Run-away Scenarios In Case Of Missing Girl
January 10, 2011

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Law enforcement tells us reports saying they're treating the investigation of missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn as just a run-away case are inaccurate and they're pursuing two avenues in their on-going investigation. They also decided daily briefings being given by authorities on the case will now be every other day.

Law enforcement tells KTXS Hailey's case has always been approached from two different angles: one, that Hailey may be a runaway and the other that something terrible has happened and this is a criminal investigation.

At an assembly this morning at Colorado City middle school students were told they can come forward with any information they have about Hailey's Dunn's disappearance.

"We're reminding them that we're here for them if they need us," said counselor Emily Strain, "Whether it's to come tell us something they think might help even if it doesn't."

Law enforcement questioned a select group of students, but won't say if it's the two girls an anonymous tip said they saw Hailey with on the day she went missing. Also, law enforcement told us today leads in the case are in the triple digits and reach beyond the state.

"Some of them, most of them might even be on the criminal side," said Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer.

On the criminal side, KTXS confirmed today DNA was collected from people close to the case. It's not clear how many people have given DNA samples, but Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, confirms he gave a sample. Reports that this investigation is being treated as only that of a run-away case are not true.

"We need to be working two angles," said City Manager Pete Kampfer, "One of them is that she's a missing person, and is alive, another part of the investigation is criminal that something has occurred where Hailey is deceased."

The person who's closest to the case, Hailey's mom, says even though her credibility is being questioned, she's focusing on getting her little girl home.

"People have said nasty things and that's okay and that's expected," Billie Jean Dunn, "I'm still thankful they're wanting Hailey's face out there. "

It was also decided today that the briefings being given by authorities on the case will now be every other day, instead of daily. They say they're scaling back because that time could better be devoted to looking for Hailey.

Hailey Dunn's Father Speaks Out
January 10, 2011

COLORADO CITY - Two weeks and counting, there's still no sign of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. She disappeared a few days after Christmas and one person we haven't heard much from during this whole ordeal is Hailey's father. Now he's speaking out hoping someone, somewhere, knows something about his daughter.

"I don't want the public to forget about Hailey's search because someone's got her, I don't want no one to forget that," Hailey's Father, Clint Dunn, said.

It's the first time since Hailey's disappearance Clint Dunn has addressed the media. His goal is to let everyone know that as time passes not to give up on finding his daughter.

"Were gonna keep it going, it's only going to keep getting bigger. I'm gonna make sure of that, I'm not gonna quit searching. I'm doing everything I can and make it bigger until she is found," Dunn said.

Clint says he will be as active as he can in Hailey's rescue efforts.

"I hope she is safe and scared to come out. It's not like her, she is beautiful child, I'm more scared with each night that goes by," Dunn said.

And no matter how long it takes, Clint has no plans to let things fall by the way side.

"I'm not giving up, I have dedicated my life, this is all we are doing. I will do this for the rest of my life until I find my daughter," Dunn said.

Although Clint lives in Snyder everyday sun up and sun down he's doing all he can to help bring Hailey home.

Officials in Colorado City: Hailey Dunn likely a runaway
January 10, 2011

Officials investigating the disappearance of a Colorado City teenager appear to again be focusing on the possibility that she ran away.

Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper Sparky Dean said Monday during a meeting with Colorado City Middle School students he is confident Hailey Dunn is alive but in hiding.

Dunn disappeared Dec. 27 after reportedly telling her mother’s live-in boyfriend that she was going to spend the night with a friend.

Dean’s address to middle school students Monday was to aid investigators in trying to identify two girls who were seen with Dunn around the time she vanished. Dean said the two girls were identified and, although they had previously spoken with authorities, would be questioned again to see if they might have any information about where Dunn was going or where she might be.

“I kind of feel like we’re playing hide-and-seek with no boundaries,” Dean told the middle school students.

By Monday, after more than 30 square miles had been searched on foot and from helicopter, Dean said there had yet to be any evidence found of criminal activity.

In addition to ground searches, law enforcement has conducted door-to-door interviews in almost every residence in Colorado City in search of physical evidence and information leading to the whereabouts of the missing teen.

As of Saturday, 12 law enforcement agencies were working on the case, he said, including the FBI, Department of Public Safety, Texas Rangers and authorities from the sheriffs offices of Mitchell, Scurry and Garza counties. City Manager and Colorado City police department spokesman Pete Kampfer said in a news conference Monday evening that law enforcement is still maintaining the same number of law enforcement officers this week.

Hailey Darlene Dunn was last seen by her mother’s live-in boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, on Dec. 27, 2010. Adkins reported he was told by Hailey around 3:15 p.m. she would be walking to her dad’s house then spending the night with a friend, Mary Beth Garcia. Hailey’s dad said she never visited him that day and Mary Beth said she never spent the night.

Law enforcement has been working to solve the missing person case since Billie Jean Dunn, Hailey’s mother, reported her missing Dec. 28. Authorities initially considered Hailey to be a runaway. However, Dean said an investigation was conducted to find any evidence of criminal activity as well.

Dean said the main thing hindering finding Hailey is a lack of honesty among locals. He is unsure if the deceitfulness is intentional or if gossip is to blame for witnesses passing along lies.

“We’re not all on the same page,” he said on Saturday. “Some of our star witnesses are less than truthful.”

While law enforcement continues to follow leads that point to the possibility that Hailey may be a runaway, her parents are still insisting she is not.

Her father, Clint, has spoken multiple times to his daughter’s happiness at home. He said she had everything she wanted and never had a reason to want to leave home.

“She’s not a runaway,” he said during an interview last week. “She’s never said those words in her life.”

Hailey’s mother, Billie Jean, maintained Monday morning that the thought of Hailey running away seems unlikely but that it is the only thing that gives her hope. If the alternative is that something bad has happened to Hailey, she said Monday morning, she would rather believe she ran away.

Locals who claim to know the family say Hailey’s life is more complicated than the version that is being given to the media.

Donna Byerley, who was introduced to the family after a friend dated a relative of Billie Jean, has described the girl’s home life as “volatile at times.” She said Hailey didn’t get along with her mother’s boyfriend and described Hailey herself as wandering “here and there,” coming and going largely “as she pleases.”

Byerley said in an interview Friday that Hailey stayed with her and her boyfriend off and on, including the final two weeks of the 2009-10 school year.

“The last few weeks, perhaps month, she was living with her dad because she doesn’t like the boyfriend (Billie Jean’s),” Byerley said.

Billie Jean said Hailey also stayed at her dad’s house for less than a month at a time but has always wanted to come back home and that her daughter had at one point moved to Snyder and enrolled in school there while staying with extended family.

“I let her try it out for a minute,” she said in reference to Hailey staying with family members. “I couldn’t let her stay longer than that and really, she didn’t want to anyway.”

Clint said the couple had plans for Hailey to move in with him in the future, yet had no comment as to why. “I had to work hard to get to be a half a block away so I could see her from my back door,” he said. “I tried to stay as close to her as I could.”

Kampfer said Monday evening the plan for today is to continue running down leads.

Texas Rangers are confident in their strategy, he said, and will continue to intensify their search and be aggressive toward bringing Hailey home.

“If you know much about being in law enforcement,” he said, “you’re going to have failures and successes and we’ve had both.”

He said he expected leads to continue to be generated through continued work by authorities this week.

“It’s a persuasion,” Kampfer said, “and the persuasion is that all the different points and leads and things they’re concluding right now is that we need to be working two angles.”

He stressed multiple times Monday that law enforcement has not ruled out the possibility of criminal activity; it has just not yet been discovered.

I am so confused by the police statements..it's like they're speaking out of both sides of their mouth. I wish they would let one of the other LE agencies involved do the PCs because they have no credibility IMOO

Authorities Pursue Criminal And Run-Away Scenarios In Hailey Dunn Case
By Jocelyn Tovar, KTXS News
POSTED: 9:33 pm CST January 10, 2011
UPDATED: 7:34 am CST January 11, 2011

 
COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Law enforcement officials have told KTXS News that reports saying they're treating the investigation of missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn as just a run-away case are inaccurate and that they're also pursuing a possible criminal case in their on-going investigation.

Law enforcement told KTXS that Hailey's case has always been approached from two different angles: one, that Hailey may be a runaway and the other that something terrible has happened and this is a criminal investigation.

At an assembly Monday morning at Colorado Middle School, students were told they can come forward with any information they have about Hailey's Dunn's disappearance.

"We're reminding them that we're here for them if they need us," said counselor Emily Strain, "whether it's to come tell us something they think might help, even if it doesn't."

Law enforcement officials questioned a select group of students but won't say whether they've identified or interviewed the two girls who were seen walking with Hailey before her disappearance, possibly on the day she went missing.

Authorities said Monday that leads in the case are in the triple digits and reach beyond the state of Texas.

"Some of them, most of them, might even be on the criminal side," said Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer.

On the criminal side, KTXS confirmed Monday that DNA was collected from people close to the case.

It's not clear how many people have given DNA samples, but Hailey's father, Clint Dunn, confirmed that he gave a sample.

"We need to be working two angles," Kampfer said. "One of them is that she's a missing person and is alive. Another part of the investigation is criminal that something has occurred where Hailey is deceased."

The person who's closest to the case, Hailey's mom, said that even though her credibility is being questioned, she's focusing on getting her little girl home.

"People have said nasty things, and that's OK and that's expected," Billie Dunn said. "I'm still thankful they're wanting Hailey's face out there. "

It was also decided today that the briefings being given by authorities on the case will now be every other day, instead of daily. They say they're scaling back because that time could better be devoted to looking for Hailey.

First, Hope everyone had a beautiful & safe holiday season! I've miss you all!

Something I noticed right away, and something I'm certain anybody working in the criminal justice system thought of right away, is this - He ratted on himself.:


http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1101/06/ng.01.html

QUOTEUNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: A lot of buzz surrounding Hailey`s mother`s boyfriend Shawn Adkins. He was the last person to see Hailey alive.

ADKINS: I would never do nothing to hurt her.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Shawn told me that he actually got home at about 3:00, and Hailey left the house at about 3:15.

DUNN: He had been at his mother`s house all day Monday.
END QUOTE

(Used as a pronoun in his sentence so that is the definition provided)


So, imo, Adkins has something to do with Hailey Dunn's disappearance. If not, then why did he say he'd "never do nothing" to hurt her instead of never do anything? To do nothing...how does one do nothing? One does nothing by laying around and just breathing, one does nothing by just standing around and taking up space...but to put "never" in front of "do nothing" seems to imply that "something" was done. If one never does nothing then it means that they do something bc they are not doing "nothing". In his own words, he ratted on himself as to his somewhat involvement. Figure of speech is beside the point. There is a missing child out there. He chose those words without even thinking. Sometimes our subconscious come out in our speech. I'll bet there are criminal investigators all over his history right now. Not a single doubt in my mind.

So when we were able to get it set up again -- Shawn had actually called them and asked them if he could come down and take it yet, and they said yes. They came, picked him up. He took his. I went in. They told me he failed it. I lost it, of course. I told them I had so much faith in that test.

Then they took me over to the courthouse. I took a polygraph test. I failed it, lost all faith in the test. A couple of other people failed it.

hmm bd just said that she did not know she was taking the polygraph when she did and took pain med for a tooth and said that she did not know she couldn't
I was just thinking the same thing ! Which is it that she had taken the night before ativan or pain meds for a tooth?

I thought she JUST stated they weren't supposed to have anti-anxiety med? So she had pain meds, antibiotics and ativan (no nanner throwing but when I hear about teeth and pain meds, I think of HaLeigh Cummings) ::MonkeyNoNo::

I agree with you IM! Also, imo, taking pain meds for a stupid toothache after taking Ativan the night before is like taking a couple Nyquil geltabs and washing it down with a vodka & cranberry or something. If she had a stupid toothache, and knowing she took a sleep aid the night before, why not just use Oragel? Ridiculous.

Something I'm thinking about right now - What kind of mother just goes off of what somebody else says... I mean, WHY didn;t she call Hailey's friend's house to make sure she was spending the night there, you know - to confirm it - but instead she took her boyfriend's word? She couldn't even call over there to say GOODNIGHT, I LOVE YOU to her daughter? Instead, she just comes home from work & she's not there, but she doesn;t panic bc her boyfriend tells her that Hailey was sleeping over her friend's house? Are you flipping kidding me? She hasn;t seen her all day, at least since the morning, bc she was at work...right? It doesn;t even make sense to me.

Am I missing something? I'm still trying to catch up on the threads, so if I'm missing something then please PRETTY PLEASE clue me in.

Hugs & kisses everyone.

While no doubt Billie wouldn't probably win any mother of the year awards, and seems to be very lax in her parenting, at least from what we are seeing, I don't think she had anything to do with Hailey going missing.     ADKINS: I would never do nothing to hurt her.   I just don't see what you are seeing with Shawn saying that. Appears to be bad grammar, he doesn't look the brightest, does he have something to do with this, could, but as of now I think something else is going on.

OMG this is so sad. You're right, Fanny Mae - such a sad situation. I tend to believe the people in the area that are saying they did not have a happy home. I believe them when they say that Hailey's home life is not how her family is portraying it to be. I think that her father is just going along with what the mom & Shawn have said so as to keep the mom comfortable...that's when things slip up. Why else would have have done so much as to move so close to his daughter? Why else would he & his wife plan on Hailey moving in with them in the future? Why...if her homelife was so "happy"? No way would a father that loves his daughter so much try to take her out of her "happy home". He would simply just move closer to be there if she ever wanted to have a closer relationship with him, iow just to be there for his daughter. Maybe the mom doesn't have anythingthing at all to do with Hailey's disappearance but failed her poly bc she has suspiscions and feels responsible for bringing Adkins into their home. Or maybe she really does have something to do with it afterall. Who knows really, but it's ridiculous to hear or read what she's saying...especially after the fact that she didn't even care enough to call Hailey's friend's mom's house to verify that Hailey was spending the night there - and she hadn't seen her all day bc she was at work?

Rick Plesea, if you're reading here, can I just bite off of you for a sec? Please? I think Mutha Of The Year sounds appropriate here. Thank you for that saying.

She looks drugged to me. But she does seem not that overly concerned about Hailey, I'm sure Hailey and her brother had to do a lot of things on their own without too much parenting going on, at least that is what it appears.

Hi No Rose. Hope you had a beautiful holiday honeybunches!

I'd agree with you, usually, but in this case it's hard for me to not see that and look more into it. I come from a family of numerous police officers. My exfiancee is a sergeant detective in his forensic dept. My cousin is a lieutenant with criminal investigations. Both of them have several items of interest they look at when investigating crimes, especially of missing children - Freudian Slips are at the top of their lists. My grandfather firmly believed freudian slips are one's own subconscious speaking out when they come from the mouth of a person under interrogation or interview. He was a chief of police in our county years ago. I'm not a connoisseur of the law or how things work, not even gonna pretend to be, but it's hard for me to think any other way bc it's just something that was inbred in me as a child (poi and freudian slips). Usually when a poi uses bad grammar, they'll tend to use words that are out of their grammatical realm, iow use words that are bigger or sound more intelligent. You could be right, though, bc you're dead on with him not appearing to be "bright".

One thing I haven't gotten over yet - he lost his job that very morning. How coincidental is that? Creepy if you ask me.

Our holiday was great!

I'm still trying to catch up. I haven;t been following the news much lately. My boys have kept me pretty busy - between wrestling and winter track I have no time at all to myself.

I remember something being said about a motel being searched. Why was the motel searched? Was there an offender or criminal staying there? Also, why did the authorities wait 4 days to bring in the dogs? Were they SAR or Cadaver? Have the authorities searched exactly what each party did throughout the day and verified it all? Probably, right? If they did, then I wonder if Shawn's mom took a poly, too, to verify her son was there all day.

For all we know, this girl could have been snatched off of the street she lives on by a total stranger like Jaycee was. It just rubs me the wrong way her mother took her bf's word that she was spending the night at her friend's house and did nothing to verify it as a fact. It's crazy imo. Real winner that one is.

I may be mistaken, but I thought the dogs picked up Hailey's scent in the parking lot of the motel. But she may have been in that parking lot many times, the town is on the small side. She sure could have been snatched off the streets, I'm stuck on two things, she got a ride and is a runaway, perhaps with an older person she knows, or a fight may have happened between her and some friends, on her FB she mentions a couple of girls that are her enemy, don't remember the exact wording.

Thank you.

She certainly could be a runaway. Only thing is that it's such a high profile case now that somebody harboring her may have seen it on the tv or something. The kids that were interviewed at school - to be a fly on the wall...yada yada... It's been said that the kids she may have last been seen with were interviewed, they were said to be friends, right? Well I wonder if the girls she classified as enemies were interviewed. I wish I had more time to be on here over the holidays. Has her mS and/or FB a/c been posted in screen shots? I see the links, etc, was only wondering real quick. I certainly hope she ran away. There sure seem to be many questions lingering that actually should have been answered on day 1. Very very sad situation. I pray she is alive and hiding somewhere.

I went back too look on Hailey's FB, now I don't see the comment about her enemies. But at that age what 13 year old girl doesn't have an enemy, could be something silly to an adult but not a young girl. But in this case who knows?

OMG!!!!
I am not sure if y'all have seen this or not but it was mentioned on the find Hailey facebook. He has been a member for 5 years or so to the following link at "Michael My". I am not speculating or say there is anything wrong with liking scary movies, but if you are obsessed  with them....... that "could" be a sign of a problem.

Anyway, check this out:

http://www.michael-myers.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=77442   (http://www.michael-myers.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=77442)

So he had access to a computer ? Is there a way to see his previous posts?

Yes, I actually joined the site so I can view his posts.  Easy to join.  This will blow the margins so you will have to scroll to view it all.  Two posts about Hailey, the 2nd on January 7th is regarding a MASK he bought from another member.

Klaas, I'm not really into sucking up...but in the words of my almost 9 y/o son - Dude, you're the shizzznittt!

1- If Adkins was so concerned & worried about Hailey, why would he post something as mundane as a stupid mask he bought off of another member of that forum?

2- Maybe they didn't have a computer, but could the Xbox have been a 360 with HDD? If so, all they'd have to do is purchase a router to hot link off of somebody else's wireless network in the area. The new Xbox 360 has the wireless built into it. Also, could they have Web TV, therefore they'd have no need for a computer...just maybe a wireless keyboard?

3- I wonder what other gaming systems they had/have. The PS3 is just like having a computer. The Wii has WiFi built in now, doesn't it? Also, the DSI has wireless in it - my 8 y/o got one for Christmas and set it up himself - he literally knew how to hotlink off of somebody else's wireless network! Our's is secured & you need the password in order to link from it, but alot of people don;t go through the same security measures I do. My almost 17 y/o and 14 y/o both have PSP devices that they set up internet on.

4- The mom has said that the phone was a throwaway, right? So, can you get the internet on that kind of phone? Didn't she say they all shared it? Did Adkins have a cell phone that wasn't one of those prepaid things?

Looks as if most of her posts on FB are done on an Iphone.

http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/profile.php?id=100001908815932&v=wall

Bingo Babskats!
  When I read there weren't computers in the home, my mind went right to cell phones.  Some of the smart phones, like the iphone, droid and etc. are little computers, and don't need an internet connection/wi fi to use.  Facebook & myspace could be easily accessed and updated anywhere, anytime imo.  Even if Hailey didn't have her own smart phone, there could be other friends that have them that she can use to update her myspace. 

I just wanted to add something to this... We bought our kids ALL iTouch devices for Christmas this year. If I would have known what they were capable of, I'd never have extended our family plan by getting upgrades to our phones! They ALL have internet on their Itouch, Facetime which is like Skype and amazing, Textfree which allows them to text anybody in the continental US for free, email etc. The only catch is that you have to hotlink off of a wireless network. Of course when they're home they just use ours as I've already allowed it on my router just for them. When they're out of range, they need to link from somebody else's router. Of course my 17 y/o son is doing no work in school now bc he's hotlinking off of the high school's wireless network & has been on Facebook for the past few school days! I had to call the school to complain yesretday that they need to secure their network, but it's a nogo. I did, however, take his iTouch away since he wishes to act like an imbecile - he'll get it back at the end of the weekend. Thought I'd lend some insight into these new devices hitting our market.

Side note - other devices besides the iTouch do these very same things. I'm a little put out that Nancy Grace used the phrase "knockoff" instead of just saying "smart device" or "multi media device". Why use the phrase knockoff? Was it to get somebody to talk? Who purchased the device for Hailey? Was it her mother?

I've missed you guys sooo much! I feel like I'm being pulled in a thousand different directions during wrestling season. It's bad enough having teenagers with attitudes, but to have them both in hs and playing different sports is enough to drive me batty. I'd say my almost 9 y/o is my saving grace but he's developed an opinion that he seems to think matters all of a sudden - lol I swear I'm just joking! Anyway, really glad to have some time on here today!
I'll have more time tonight & tomorrow.

Adkins - I don't like him one bit. I think something's up with him, I really do. Then again, I'm just a stranger looking in from the outside. Hunches & gut don't win convictions.

Think about it.  On the January 3rd Nancy Grace Show ... Billie was unware that Shawn had been fired on the morning of December 27th and spent the day with his mother.  It appears Billie was under the impression that Shawn arrived home from work at 3:00 PM and had a short encounter with Hailey.

Considering that Hailey was observed by a neighbour in her yard talking on the the cell ... could it be that following the firing Shawn did not spend the entire day with his mother?  Could it be that he arrived home much earlier than the 3:00 PM alleged time?

I'm sorry. I need to correct myself. It's not from The Raven as I incorrectly thought. I just googled it to see it in full context, and it's from Edgar Allen Poe's: The Fall Of The House Of Usher.

Authorities Pursue Criminal And Run-Away Scenarios In Hailey Dunn Case (with video)

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- Law enforcement officials have told KTXS News that reports saying they're treating the investigation of missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn as just a run-away case are inaccurate and that they're also pursuing a possible criminal case in their on-going investigation.

Law enforcement told KTXS that Hailey's case has always been approached from two different angles: one, that Hailey may be a runaway and the other that something terrible has happened and this is a criminal investigation.

At an assembly Monday morning at Colorado Middle School, students were told they can come forward with any information they have about Hailey's Dunn's disappearance.

"We're reminding them that we're here for them if they need us," said counselor Emily Strain, "whether it's to come tell us something they think might help, even if it doesn't."

Law enforcement officials questioned a select group of students but won't say whether they've identified or interviewed the two girls who were seen walking with Hailey before her disappearance, possibly on the day she went missing.

Authorities said Monday that leads in the case are in the triple digits and reach beyond the state of Texas.

"Some of them, most of them, might even be on the criminal side," said Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer.

Statements from Hailey Dunn's Mother and Law Enforcement Don't Match 1/10/11

After a series of valiant yet unsuccessful civilian searches this weekend authorities spent Monday investigating more than 100 leads.

One of the most prominent involved two girls said to have seen Hailey Dunn just before her disappearance.

Hailey’s parents, Billie Jean and Clint Dunn say they’ve provided DNA samples in case authorities need to verify a match with Hailey’s DNA.

While it’s probably not the best sign, the Dunn’s are trying to remain optimistic.

Billie spoke on the nationally televised Nancy Grace Show once again Monday night on Headline News.

CNN is one of about 10 media outlets closely covering the search.

Billie told Grace last week that she and boyfriend, Shawn Adkins failed polygraph tests.

The next day law enforcement said she was never told the results. Monday, Billie stuck to her story.

Colorado City residents will search again Tuesday with assistance from a search team coming in from Florida.

The City Manager, Pete Kampfer, says the more than 100 billboards now up statewide are at this point, even better than an Amber Alert.

Kampfer had requested an Amber Alert at least three times from state officials and was denied each time.

Meanwhile, law enforcement is continuing their investigation from two angles: criminal, which prompts searches for a dead body or potential abductor.

The second angle is “runaway”, which has authorities following leads both in and out of state.

While it has been two weeks since she disappeared, Hailey’s family is nowhere near giving up.

Statements from Hailey Dunn's Mother and Law Enforcement Don't Match 1/10/11

After a series of valiant yet unsuccessful civilian searches this weekend authorities spent Monday investigating more than 100 leads.

One of the most prominent involved two girls said to have seen Hailey Dunn just before her disappearance.

Hailey’s parents, Billie Jean and Clint Dunn say they’ve provided DNA samples in case authorities need to verify a match with Hailey’s DNA.

While it’s probably not the best sign, the Dunn’s are trying to remain optimistic.

Billie spoke on the nationally televised Nancy Grace Show once again Monday night on Headline News.

CNN is one of about 10 media outlets closely covering the search.

Billie told Grace last week that she and boyfriend, Shawn Adkins failed polygraph tests.

The next day law enforcement said she was never told the results. Monday, Billie stuck to her story.

Colorado City residents will search again Tuesday with assistance from a search team coming in from Florida.

The City Manager, Pete Kampfer, says the more than 100 billboards now up statewide are at this point, even better than an Amber Alert.

Missing teen's grandmothers speak out, pray that she's safe
(snip)

Jones said Hailey didn't care much for Adkins. "She don't like Shawn being there; but she wants her mom and dad to go back together," she said.

Hailey's mother and father separated 3 years ago; Jones says the divorce was hard on Hailey.

Connie Ostrander is Hailey's other grandmother in Snyder. "I just don't understand this because she doesn't do this. She's not the type to run away," she said.

(snip)

O.T.

Why Mom did not call Hailey and ask if she ask supper,at the friends? This sounds funny, everyone I knows eats dinner or supper. Mom never called and asked if the kid ate or needed anything.  I would have called the friends mother and ask if I could drop off a pizza, so I could see what was going on and ensure her daughter ate.

I must be from the Pilgrim days. ::MonkeyHaHa::

David Dunn, Haley’s brother, said Thursday he did not know Adkins well.
END QUOTE


Now forgive me if I'm missing something here, but if mom met Adkins shortly after her split with Clint, and if Adkins moved in around 4 months ago, how is it that Hailey's brother David doesn't know him that well? He's had enough time to get to know him if we take his mother's word that she met Adkin's shortly after her breakup with Clint. I mean, surely she wouldn't just move somebody in without getting to know how her children feel about him...or would she? Has it been confirmed when they're "relationship" started, other than when she "says" she met him on MySpace?

Something else - I really wish when these kids go missing that the authorities would release full length pictures of them. For instance, I am 5'5 and weigh 128. Hailey is 5'1 and weighs approximately 120. When you look at her picture, her cheer pic, it doesn't appear as though she's pudgey. Hair and makeup can change a person drastically. If this girl did in fact run away, which I personally think something's up with the mom's bf but still waiting to hear more info, everyone could be looking for a "skinny" girl and would possibly discount or overlook somebody that may resemble her based on what her half a picture looks like. Take into consideration the pictures of Brittany Mae Smith. Her pictures released, except for the one where all of her hair was up and she was standing near a road with her mom or friend or something, looks nothing like what she really looks like. They were "prettified" and made her look slim. When you see the video footage of her in Walmart, as well as the picture released from when she was at the vigil for her mom & herself, you can plainly see she's not skinny. Pictures can be misleading is what I'm getting at. Sometimes people release the prettiest pictures they can find bc it's how they tend to think of their missing loved one. Same goes for some of the pics posted on these online sites. I think maybe the parents should release some photos of what she looks like on a daily basis, not her cheerleading picture. If she is in fact a runaway, which I tend to think she isn't, then shouldn't they get out there what she normally looks like instead of a "pretty" picture?


AND... Please don't anyone take out of context what I just stated. It's not meant to be rude or hurtful. It's meant to be factual and helpful in locating a missing person.

Statements from Hailey Dunn's Mother and Law Enforcement Don't Match 1/10/11

After a series of valiant yet unsuccessful civilian searches this weekend authorities spent Monday investigating more than 100 leads.

One of the most prominent involved two girls said to have seen Hailey Dunn just before her disappearance.

Hailey’s parents, Billie Jean and Clint Dunn say they’ve provided DNA samples in case authorities need to verify a match with Hailey’s DNA.

While it’s probably not the best sign, the Dunn’s are trying to remain optimistic.

Billie spoke on the nationally televised Nancy Grace Show once again Monday night on Headline News.

CNN is one of about 10 media outlets closely covering the search.

Billie told Grace last week that she and boyfriend, Shawn Adkins failed polygraph tests.

The next day law enforcement said she was never told the results. Monday, Billie stuck to her story.

Colorado City residents will search again Tuesday with assistance from a search team coming in from Florida.

The City Manager, Pete Kampfer, says the more than 100 billboards now up statewide are at this point, even better than an Amber Alert.

Kampfer had requested an Amber Alert at least three times from state officials and was denied each time.

Meanwhile, law enforcement is continuing their investigation from two angles: criminal, which prompts searches for a dead body or potential abductor.

Dear God, let's hope that stupidity doesnt take place....this case doesnt need known frauds, liars & felons looking for face time on a personal agenda not in the best interest of a victim or family.   It should be noted that neither have done one positive thing in ANY missing persons/potential criminal case YET, certainly not within the past year at all.  The last time these scummy people attempted to appear that they were helping was in the Haleigh Cummings case & that was more about them attempting to change the general public view about them more than it was to assist constructively.  In fact, it was noted that George Anthony spent more time discussing how his family endured suspicion of misconduct & how unfair it was that LE focused on the family...1) his personal experience should never cloud judgment in another case 2) his statements were a purposeful attempt to misconstrue the facts surrounding Caylee's case.

I know the Texas Rangers are on Hailey's case, but more and more this seems like an episode from the Keystone Cops. I realize it is out in a remote area but surely they have more sophisticated ways of finding a missing child instead of one entity saying she run away, and another saying it may be criminal activity. And TES is right in the state. WTH?

I agree she comes across as upfront and no BS.  I question what kind of person would not call and check up on a Thirteen year old?  I would want to know what she ate and if she ate, I care about animal's and kid's.

I respectfully disagree that she knows nothing & is being totally honest.  I believe that she has previous information that she is fully aware of that MAY have something to do with why her daughter is not home safely tucked in her bed.   Do I believe she is directly involved, not necessarily but I believe she sensed this live in boyfriend should not have been in that house prior to December 27th and/or conduct taking place in that home may have been a direct link as to why Hailey has not been seen or heard from.  It is obvious she is a neglectful & extremely immature mother whose focus was totally skewed, she is going to have to live with that no matter the outcome of this case....God willing with Hailey at least being safe & physically unharmed, I'm not too optimistic about that though.

Search goes on for Colorado City girl, 13

Associated Press - January 11, 2011 12:45 PM ET

COLORADO CITY, Texas (AP) - Police in West Texas say the search for a 13-year-old girl reported missing for two weeks is a criminal investigation.

Colorado City police say Hailey Darlene Dunn has been missing since Dec. 28 and they don't have any evidence that she ran away.

The girl was reported missing by her mother. Investigators say Hailey was last seen Dec. 27 by her mother's boyfriend.

The girl is described as white, 5 feet, 1 inch tall, weighing 120 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair with blondish streaks.

Her father, Clint Dunn, told AP that Hailey is popular, isn't in to boys or drugs and "she's just a good ol' American girl."

Colorado City is 100 miles southeast of Lubbock.

A single mother of two who is utterly exhausted ... a single mother of two who had just worked a twelve hour shift.

I am not condoning any type of child abuse or neglect but ... I understand how it can happen.  My daughter was six weeks old and she had cried what seemed to be solid for six weeks.  This one night I had just gotten to sleep and your guessed it.  I got out of bed ... looked on this red scrunched up screaming little face and ... thought to myself ... "To think that we wanted you".  I got back into bed and ... my hubby who had to get up for work in a couple of hours inquired why I was not feeding the baby.  I informed him that if I touched her ... I did not trust myself what I would do and ... leaving the situation in his capable hands ... immediately fell into an exhausted sleep.

I guess my point is.  In 43 years ... I have never forgotten that night ... I have never forgotten my dark feelings.  What would have been the outcome if I did not have the immediate support of my hubby?

GRACE: Tell me what happened the day she went missing, Miss Dunn.

DUNN: She went missing on Monday while I was at work. My boyfriend - - he came home from work about 3:00 -- or he got to my house about 3:00. And he`s seen Hailey. Hailey was there. She told him, I`m running across the street to my dad`s house for a few minutes but I`m going Mary Beth`s, and I`m staying the night there. Let my mom know.

So that evening when he picked me up from work, we got home, we were getting ready for bed. I didn`t get worried when I hadn`t heard from Hailey. I thought she was at Mary Beth`s. I was kind of upset that she didn`t call and confirm it with me, but not worried at that point.

Because I would have done something like that.

GRACE: You know what, Pat? I have to agree with you. When I would have sleepovers, they were right across the street, and my parents would watch me walk across the street. What about it, Billie Dunn?

BILLIE DUNN: I just don`t have an answer for that. I wish I would have called to tell her good night. I wish I would have called the little girl`s phone that night.

So, after reading this, it dawns on me that nobody in authority has released info regarding Hailey being involved in 4H, but shouldn't they have done that when they "suggested" she was a runaway? What better way to runaway as a 13 y/o without a driver's license than to take a horse & go as far away as one can?

I understand what you are saying, but I unfortunately, when I'm upset or nervous use bad grammar without even thinking about it, only to be told, wow, that didn't make much sense. I agree the job loss on the same day is weird, would like to hear more about what happened about that.  I sure hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday as well   ::MonkeyAngel::

Our holiday was great!

I'm still trying to catch up. I haven;t been following the news much lately. My boys have kept me pretty busy - between wrestling and winter track I have no time at all to myself.

I remember something being said about a motel being searched. Why was the motel searched? Was there an offender or criminal staying there? Also, why did the authorities wait 4 days to bring in the dogs? Were they SAR or Cadaver? Have the authorities searched exactly what each party did throughout the day and verified it all? Probably, right? If they did, then I wonder if Shawn's mom took a poly, too, to verify her son was there all day.

For all we know, this girl could have been snatched off of the street she lives on by a total stranger like Jaycee was. It just rubs me the wrong way her mother took her bf's word that she was spending the night at her friend's house and did nothing to verify it as a fact. It's crazy imo. Real winner that one is.

About why the motel was searched:

(snip)" Bloodhounds have been brought in during the search for missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn of Colorado City, according to Dunn's mother.
According to the Nance Grace program on "HLN," bloodhounds were able to track Hailey's scent from her neighborhood to the nearby Western Suites, 2233 Vine Street.
Hailey's mother, Billie Dunn, confirmed that dogs were brought in and indeed tracked Hailey's scent to the hotel. Local authorities have not yet confirmed this information to the news media, according to KTAB's Priscilla Luong.
Dunn told the program that law enforcement was in the process of reviewing surveillance video from the motel.(snip)

On Friday, bloodhounds were taken to the six motels in Colorado City. At one of them, the Western Suites, which is adjacent to Interstate 20 and near the Dunn home, the dogs picked up on the girl's scent in the parking lot. It led to a ground-floor room, but no further. A search of all 24 rooms produced no other evidence.(snip)

It's my opinion it's not so much the investigation that's been at fault so much as the family, friends and other people that have been slowing down the investigation.  Stories have changed and etc., which can cause false leads.  Investigators try to find a direction to take when searching and etc.  I think there's been some that have purposely misled LE. I was reading through the pages of this thread, and things keep changing.  Tips and time lines have to be verified.  Personally, I think it would aid the investigation if some of the parties were mor
