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.

UGH.....Don't no what to believe anymore, just contradictions...

10:00PM UPDATE: The Search for Hailey Dunn Takes a New Turn 1/5/11

Beau Berman
CBS 7 News

January 5, 2011

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."

can't he borrow someone's car to "hit the interstate to look for Hailey himself"? 
after all, if one's child is missing, don't we do what we can to find them, come hell or high water?? Regardless, if he thinks that he knows who has his child, he needs to contact authorities...and not wait till his vehicle is running...

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.

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."
