The search for Hailey Dunn, missing since Monday, December 27 continues. As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, December 29, police have no new leads into her disappearance.

Dunn was reported missing late Tuesday afternoon December 28, after she failed to return home from supposedly spending the night with a friend, according to Interim Police Chief John Bivins.

Dunn was last seen at 1804 Chestnut, wearing navy blue sweat pants, a light colored T-shirt and pink and white shoes.

Dunn is a white female, 5' 1" with hazel eyes and brown hair. She also has pierced ears.

Dunn has been entered into the Region 5 broadcast system, which alerts surrounding counties and beyond.

Police conducted a door-to-door search for the missing girl, after checking with family and friends.

Right now police say they are just very concerned about Hailey Darlene Dunn and are working to find her. They have not issued an Amber Alert because there is no evidence of a violent abduction. Family members have told KTXS News that Hailey was planning to spend the night with a friend Monday night but never made it.

Police are concerned with the well-fare of the child but say they are treating it as a missing person. They add there is no evidence of kidnapping involved.

A Facebook account reporting that Hailey Dunn's body was found in Loraine is unfounded, according to Interim Police Chief John Bivins of the Colorado City Police Department.

"The report is not true," Bivins said. No dead body belonging to Dunn or anyone else has been found in Loraine.

Colorado City police are still investigating the disappearance of the missing 13-year-old.

Dunn was reported missing late Tuesday afternoon December 28, after she failed to return home from supposedly spending the night with a friend, according to Bivins.

I hate MS for kids :( It just seems to be set up to encourage them to give out all kinds of info about themselves, even more so than FB.

I thought of Kayleigh right away too and hope I am wrong. But I wonder why no one called her house when she did not show up at sleepover or why she was not expected to check in at home? 13 is still pretty young...

Yes!!! She is talking about 'tamara'.....a girl who she calls her 'enemy' on ms. Hope LE is talking to her.


But, honestly, the timeline is screwy......why didn't she show at the friends....and why didn't the friend call the Dunn house when she didn't show?? I would think her friends would know something about what was going on with her, who she was into, who she may have been meeting up with, etc.

Oh no...not another one!

This is a very, very, very rural community in West Texas-population less than 5000---i'm sure.

I can't imagine they've ever had anyone go "missing". If I recall, (and it's been 10 years since i lived in W. Texas), they're police force is really, really small...


All this to say, we have to work very hard to make sure this little girl gets some coverage...I'm going to start emailing flyers to the national stations. Can't do it til tomorrow though.

I pray she is safe and is found and returned to her family before I awake...

I agree there is a lot of info missing in this case. Most girls 13 years old have to be driven everywhere. So if she was going to a friend's house, who was responsible for taking her there? Did the friend's family pick Hailey up? Do you know anyone who would let their child walk to a friend's house these days?

I wish we had more facts....

cluciano63
12-30-2010, 12:54 AM
I don't see a problem with young teens walking to a friend's house if it is not far, and as a poster said, this is a very small town.

I see trains of kids walking from school, all around my neighborhood by themselves all the time-the thing that drives me crazy is that they all have headphones clamped over their ears and seem oblivious. They would not hear a car pull up behind them.

But I don't see why no one was alarmed before the next morning when she did not show up. Do we know that she walked? Or said she had a ride?

I have been riveted to Jonathan's thread and I can't believe I had no clue this little girl was missing!

Colorado City is a small town about 1 1/2 hours away from me. When I asked my H about the ability of their police dept. to handle this properly, he told me that they actually had disbanded their police department recently and he was surprised to hear from me that there was a spokesperson being identified as the police chief! This leads me to question just how much experience this new chief can have with missing children cases.

My H generally sneers at my online sleuthing efforts, but he surprised me by agreeing to call Chief Bivens to offer any help he might need from Abilene PD. I hope the chief is not too proud to accept it!

Colorado City is a very rural community...people know each other's business I'm sure, and if their teenagers are anything like my kid's friends, nothing ever stays secret for long. They all follow each other's texts and facebook comments etc. If this girl was with any of her friends instead of at the sleepover, kids would be talking about it. It's such a small town, there really wouldn't be any kids who don't know each other...it's not like she could be hanging out with a friend from a school across town that no one else knows...there is only one school to go to!

I'll post whatever I can after H talks to Bivens. He might not tell me much, but I hope he can at least let us know that the cell is being traced for pings and last calls being looked at!

I too have been glued to Jonathan's thread and only saw this tonight. When I saw your 1.5 hours...I figured it was Abilene.

I lived in Big Spring and went to Nursing School in Sweetwater...had study group and a very good friend who lived in Colorado City (no longer lives there) but I do have a friend who still lives in Lorraine...I saw Lorraine mentioned earlier here...anyway...I'm going to call my friend tomorrow to see if we can find out any helpful details. You're so right...everyone in Colorado City knows everyone, their family and their business!

That's why this is so disturbing to me...someone knows something...unless she happened to have been abducted from someone passing through...I20?

A 13-yr olds most essential possession is a cell phone. Hopefully authorities have checked for usage? And wouldn't relatives and friends of the girl be alarmed if she did not touch base before/after the planned sleepover??

There's an extremely laid-back flavor to this one: no parents pleading for info/witnesses, no police updates (aside from one to squelch a rumor). In a small town like Colorado City TX, I'd think the whole town would be buzzing, and the locals would be worried about safety of their children.

I agree with all of the above! My H tried to get hold of someone at their PD last night. It was late and all he got was voicemail. He did leave a message. No return call so far. Not a good sign, IMO. I hope Bivens is busy following leads, but the story in their local paper said he's back where he started after questioning everyone he could.

I'm told the reason CCity didn't have a PD for a while was becaause they couldn't afford to pay for it, so I suspect that even now, Bivens probably doesn't have much help; 2 or 3 officers , maybe, and when the pay is bare minimum, how experienced can they be? Kimster is correct; the county sheriff would cover what the city guys can't, but it sounds like Bivens is in charge in this case.

I realize that way too often, missing children aren't taken seriously until it is too late to help them. I am afraid that this poor child is in real danger, if not already dead! CCity is right there on I-20...if she was on foot and someone took her, Kimster is right...she could be anywhere. If I understand correctly, there has not even been a search party!

The parent's names are on the Myspace. I can't really contact them without "interfering", now that my H (APD Chief) has tried to call Chief Bivens...not politically correct you know. Anyone else want to see if they can find an e-mail or Facebook for one of them?

All of the above is MOO. My opinions are not necessarily the same as my H, who would never put his opinions on a discussion board or discuss confidential details of any investigation with me. For some weird reason, he's afraid it would end up on Websleuths, then on Nancy Grace!

The missing girl is currently being treated as a runaway.

Observances ~

* Hailey is 13yo
* She has a 16yo brother
* Her parents are divorced and father is remarried
* Her father and stepmom have a new baby, as of Nov.
* She lives primarily with her mother (made mention of debating who to spend Thanksgiving with and decided to spend it with dad and new baby sister)
* She has an aunt and uncle that they either live with or who live nearby, as they had her watch her twin cousins one night at 10pm while they went shopping
* Her profile pic is that of her baby cousin


Questions ~

* Was Hailey at her mother's or father's when she went missing?
* What of Hailey's is missing?
* What do they think should be missing, but has been found?
* Why did her friend not call to ask where she was, if Hailey did not show up for the sleepover?

Ok...talked to my friend in Loraine (minutes from CCity) just a few minutes ago and I am apalled...she had not even heard of it...she's going to call her mom who is an instructor at the closest community college and see if she's aware and if there are at least posters out / up and if not, give her some to put up.

she also said she was going to drive "into CCity" this afternoon to see what the community was saying, feeling, etc.

I emailed the info to Fox National News, CNN News and some of my employees who work in West Texas...Big Spring, Snyder, Sweetwater, etc...to help communicate and distribute the information. They're in the same areas daily (oil field) and will keep they're eyes open for anything "different" that they might come across.

(MOO)
The article reads as if they are doing everything they can, but there is not one mention of this little girl that I can find in any of the major newspapers in the surrounding larger cities.(Midland, Lubbock or Abilene). If she really meant to run away, do you think she would hang around her small community where everyone knows her? Please! The apparent fact that she is the only young person missing from that area indicates to me that she is not with a friend. By this time, the child could have been taken clear across the country.

This little girl is not capable of protecting herself or making adult decisions at 13. If she has been driven anywhere by anyone without her parent's consent, that is kidnapping...she is a child! She is in danger!

Who saw her last? What is the last activity on her phone? Have they traced the pings since Monday night? Have lie detector tests been given to anyone? This could be anything from a covered-up accident to a secret rondevous gone way wrong to an out ond out kidnapping. Runaway is a possibility, but it would be very irresponsible to count on her returning on her own or someone turning her in.

I don't know a thing about her family situation, but if she were my child, I would err on the side of her being in extreme danger and pull out all of the stops...Missing persons organizations, TV interviews, personal pleas to every newspaper and media outlet to put her on their front page, even if I thought she went with someone willingly. Anyone who harbors a missing 13 year old child is up to no good. I guarantee this little girl did not willingly walk off alone to spend her nights out in the cold. She may have intended to return the next day with her parents none the wiser. So What? Someone has her now, she doesn't even look a day over 13, so that person knows that they are violating the law.

It sounds like local LE means well, but I hope they aren't calling her a runaway simply because they don't know what else to do. I am not suggesting an Amber Alert; they don't have enough info for that. What I'm calling for is serious investigation...looking for her phone, scruitinizing past contacts, looking at what she may have tried to delete from her computer...did she ever use her friend's computers? Who saw her last besides her family? Have they tried to track her with professional tracking dogs? JMO

Also, do we know which friend's house they're talking about? Wondering if the friend's parents were aware she was to be there, and if so, why didn't they call when she didn't show up?

Officers are checking abandoned houses and storm cellars and have pursued possible leads in Snyder with the assistance of the Snyder police department.

Do they think she is in Snyder? How close is this to where she was last seen?

BBM...Completely agree!!!

I'm guessing that LE has info from friends, her FB, her myspace, and/or cell phone that lead them to believe she ran away. But with whom is the question? How was she getting to this friends house? I know in small towns it wouldn't be to far fetched that she walked, but what about the weather? Is it warm enough to be walking?

I would venture to also guess that part of the speculation that she ranaway, could probably explain why she wasn't reported missing until the following afternoon. She told her mom she was spending a night at a friends house. Which was possibly a lie, therefore this friend wasn't expecting her. She wouldn't have known to call Hailey's mom to say she never showed up.

About 20 minutes. Both are very, very rural areas / towns.

Example: I went to school Sweetwater, which is about 30 mins from snyder and 15 from Colorado City...many of my classmates lived in Colorado City, Snyder and Loraine and they all knew each others families, extended families, where so and so worked, who owned the corner store, who was getting divorced, who slept with who...all of that...which again, is why it seems very odd that no one has said anything---but, maybe they have and we just haven't heard about it yet.

I'm already late for an appointment but I have one last thought for now.

Dosen't Warren Jeff's cult have a place near CCity? They "marry" little girls, and from what Ive read, when their male children become young teenagers thewy are often kicked out on the streets because the old pervert men want all of the young "wives" for their child brides. Young fellas are too much competiton, you know! I wonder if there are any of these ostracizrd young men in the area who might think it would be nice to have a young bride of their own? I hope not!

Hello...I found this thread for Hailey and wanted to share some info from someone who actually lives here in Colorado City, Texas. We are a small town, but we DO still have an outstanding Police Dept. and John Bivins is the Chief of Police. We also have a very capable Sheriff's Department and they are also working this case. It's true this doesn't happen often here (thank the Lord), but let me assure everyone that us "locals" DO care about this girl and that everyone is working around the clock to find her. There has been lots of media coverage by our local radio station and newspaper. Flyers are being distributed as we speak. Our radio (KVMC/KAUM) FB page is always updating with any leads and info.

Warren Jeffs does not live anywhere near here either. That is in Arizona, and if you Google him and the polygamous group you would certainly find that info readily available.

It is widely believed Hailey is with an older boyfriend and that they are in hiding for whatever reasons. But foul play has not been ruled out either. Our authorities are doing everything possible to find her, but no one here is "too proud" to accept sincere offers of help. We want Hailey found safe and returned home to her family. Thank you for all the information and insight you are giving, I do appreciate it. Will post more as the info becomes available. ~Redcat

TGI, I also want to know if they have delved into her social networking sites to make sure she wasn't lured away by a predator. They would need to call in a computer forensics team for that one.

It bothers me to see the FB accounts of these young people open to the public. It really makes them quite vulnerable...

Thanks Redcat!

Do you know if they have spoken with the boyfriend? Is he a foolish 16yr. old or a predatory adult? Even an older teen would know that it is illegal to take a child of 13, and if he is having sex with her and she gets pregnant, what if he decides it is better to get rid of her than to risk DNA revealing his identity rather than facing charges? If he is a minor, why has he not been listed as misssing, and if he is an adult, is there a BOLO, a vehicle description, or a physical description? If they have reason to believe she is with him, surely a warrant can be obtained to trace his cell phone or use of a debit or credit card.

I was way off on the polygamist thing...of course it's in Colorado City AZ.
The one they have in Texas is farther south, past San Angelo. Thanks for setting me straight!

Thank you for keeping us up to date. If you happen to know Hailey's family, the information on Websleuths' "Lighting the way Home", (just below the "Missing" Forum) Forum includes links to information on helping families and siblings cope. Many of our members here have lost loved ones as well. We want to help bring home those who are missing, be of some comfort to their loved ones and support law enforcement in their efforts to put predators behind bars.

Hi redcat! Welcome to Websleuths!!!

There are multiple ways to go about this. The easiest would probably be a Page, IMO. Click on the "Create a Page" for a celebrity, band, or business. Then on the left side, there will be a spot to enter the name. Something to the effect of "Find Hailey Dunn" or "Missing: Hailey Dunn" or something like that. Then enter the email you have already created, and click Sign Up Now!

If you need any further help, just let someone know and we'd be happy to help! Thanks!!!

I'm glad others were able to help you with the FB page...unfortunately, I'm clueless when it comes to that.

I can help with anything else though, so please don't hesitate to ask more questions.

I was thinking about Hailey today and thought it might be helpful to get some of the truck drivers to help disseminate some of the missing posters for her...considering the close proximity to I-20. Not sure if you all have thought about that or not...just in case, here's a link w/ more info.

Hello,

I live in Colorado City, and Hailey's mom, Billie, is one of my dearest friends. I would like to answer some of the questions that have been raised here, and add some information to what has already been posted.

First of all, a little background information. Hailey lives with her mom, Billie, and her 16 year old brother, DD, in the 1800 block of Chestnut St., Colorado City, TX. Billie's boyfriend frequently stays there also. Billie and Hailey's dad, Clint, are divorced. Clint and his girlfriend live nearly directly across the street from Billie.

On Monday, December 27th, Billie was at work in Snyder, TX. Her boyfriend was at her home with Hailey. DD was in and out, but not home when Hailey left. Hailey told her mom's boyfriend that she was going to walk across the street to see her dad, and then go on to her friend's house to spend the night. As previously mentioned, Colorado City is a very small town. Kids here walk around pretty freely. Hailey did not take anything with her when she left the house.

Tuesday afternoon, Billie told DD to text Hailey's friend to tell her to come home. Hailey does not have her own cell phone. Hailey's friend told DD that she never arrived on Monday. This seems to be a grey area... Hailey's friend is saying that she did not know for sure if Hailey was coming over or not. At this point, Billie was understandably panicked. She contacted Clint's girlfriend, who first said that yes, Hailey did come over Monday, but later said that she was not sure if she saw her or not. Another grey area. At this point, it is like Hailey disappeared into thin air while crossing the street.

The police were contacted, and an investigation was started. The Colorado City Police Department, the Mitchell County Sheriff's Department, and the District Attorney and that office's investigators are all involved. While the law enforcement agencies have done some searching, an official 'man-hunt' type search has not been held. Someone to give polygraphs came in today, but I do not think any have been given yet.

Quite a few people - friends, family, aquaintances, neighbors - have been interviewed. Friends and family have been putting up fliers here in Colorado City and in neighboring communities. Local moms have searched the park and other areas for signs of Hailey. Prayer vigils are set to be held. We are doing everything we can think of. The only thing that has not been done is for Billie to try and find a TV station to let her make an on air plea for Hailey's safe return. She is supposed to meet with KTXS this coming Monday, but of course we are hoping that Hailey will be back home by then.

Billie is a good person and a loving mom. She is beside herself at this point, and does not know what to think. Despite rumors to the contrary, Hailey has never run away before.

Rumors of course are flying: Hailey's body has been found, Hailey has run away with her boyfriend, Hailey is hiding here in town at someone's house that no one would think to look, etc. etc. etc. We don't know what to think or what to believe. Right now we are just hoping and praying for Hailey's safe return. It warms my heart to see people who don't even know us doing all they can to help. Please continue to keep Hailey and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

If anyone has any other questions, I will do my best to answer them. Ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

UPDATE: As I was finishing this up, I spoke with Billie, who said that police have brought in bloodhounds. The dogs did pick up a scent. Also, a neighbor saw Hailey on the phone in her backyard for about 30 minutes Monday afternoon. A woman has come forward and said that she is fairly certain that she saw Hailey with another girl and a boy walking late Monday evening. It has also come to light that Hailey had been talking to a boy in a neighboring town. The police are investigating these leads. Hopefully, this new information will lead us to Hailey.

I know what you mean. It's possible. Although since she was supposed to spend the night at a friend's, she didn't even need to say she was going to her dad's house. Maybe (if she was planning on leaving) she was going to see her dad before she left, and saw that he wasn't home - but that is just pure speculation on my part.

Thank you so much czgtz. I'm so sorry that you and Hailey's family are having to go through this, but I am glad that it sounds like law enforcement and the local media are finally starting to take notice.
Can you tell us how long mom and dad have been dating their significant others and if they (mom's boyfriend and dad's girlfriend) seem on good terms with Hailey?
Also, by this point, couldn't they have determined IF Hailey was on the phone for '30 minutes in the backyard' just prior to going missing......shouldn't they be able to find out who was on the other line?
I am assuming this was the parents mobile or land line phone, so they should be able to contact the phone company, give them the time and date, and get the phone number called during that period. Hopefully someone has already started this process.

Just been going over her MS comments posted from an Ipod ? Any how it looks like she was having some issuses with some girls? Starting around Aug 18, 2010 over a boy perhaps. Then around Nov 6th looks like she has a new luv interest that she thought they were just friends.
Nov 7th more talk about being harrassed by some girls over a boy (my take) and possibly a fight between her friend and another gal on the same day. Thats about it.

Oh she has a blurb about herself talking about having two enemies and names them not sure when she wrote that though.....

OK, like all teenage girls, I'm sure there were several boys that Hailey 'liked'. She did mention one in particular that lives here in Colorado City to Billie, but didn't say that he was her boyfriend.

Hailey's friend who she was supposed to spend the night finally (and I think grudgingly) told Billie and the police that they met this boy at a track meet out of town. All that she told was his name and that he was "their age". He was a participant in the track meet, so he has to be in school. The police are going to look through the school records in the neighboring town and try and determine who he is.

I am fairly sure that the enemy talk on FB was just that - talk. Small towns are full of gossip, and Hailey is not the first girl by a long shot to have been accused of being with someone's boyfriend. I check my girl's FB daily, and am appalled at how so many of these teens talk about each other.

Billie works long hours in Snyder. It is not unusual for her boyfriend to be there with the kids. I don't think that Hailey would call Billie everytime she wanted to do something. As far as the clothes she was wearing - it has been unseasonably warm.

All that she told was his name and that he was "their age". He was a participant in the track meet, so he has to be in school. The police are going to look through the school records in the neighboring town and try and determine who he is.

I am fairly sure that the enemy talk on FB was just that - talk. Small towns are full of gossip, and Hailey is not the first girl by a long shot to have been accused of being with someone's boyfriend. I check my girl's FB daily, and am appalled at how so many of these teens talk about each other.

Billie works long hours in Snyder. It is not unusual for her boyfriend to be there with the kids. I don't think that Hailey would call Billie everytime she wanted to do something. As far as the clothes she was wearing - it has been unseasonably warm.


Well, it sounds like progress is being made...that's encouraging. Having grown up in a town about the size of CCity, I can completely relate to the small town gossip. Of course, it's probably much worse now.

It sounds like the friend just started talking...today / tonight, right? I sure hope so...Please let Hailey's mother know we are all praying for her safe return and thank you so much for joining us here.

Please keep us posted.

The bf - does he work? Just curious because you say not unusual for him to be there with the kids....... And Mom - works long hours? Not a usual 8 hr shift?

Who drove the girls to the track meet? Whose vehicle did they use? Even a 16 yr old is old enough to be sat down at the PD and informed of the seriousness of the situation. I'm sure they can find something to charge the driver with if he or she does not want to cooperate. Did this girl indicate that Hailey took any money or extra clothes with her? It may be warm during the day, but nights have been near freezing.

In my opinion, someone should have scared the pee-pee out of Hailey's girl friend the first day she failed to return home. There is no excuse for holding back to CYA when a child is missing! What is the attitude of her (friend's) parents? If they are not encouraging, (read: ordering) her to spill the whole truth, I'd take a hard look at their motives!

That lie detector needs to be put to good use ASAP. Mom's boyfriend, sleep-over girl, driver, and anyone they had contact with at the track meet, IMO.

If the track story is true, maybe the bloodhounds need to go there. Much less chance of confusing results there than in her neighborhood where she walked all of the time.

Hmmm.....at this point....after Hailey being missing for a week, why would the friend not spill her guts about what was going on?? I understand not wanting to get Hailey in trouble, but clearly Hailey is already in trouble/danger.

Really hoping Hailey's friend is questioned thoroughly by police. WAY too much time has passed for people to be hiding information.

:waitasec: Okay, either there is a mistake in relaying exactly what Hailey's friend said, or something stinks. Track season is in the spring...newspaper coverage indicates there are no track meets until April! Right now it's all basketball.

I'm going to try to see if there were any 5k charity events or anything else that a girl might confuse with a track meet.

According to Abilene Runners Club, the only run scheduled for Monday, Dec. 27, was in Richmond...slightly NE of Houston. It was not a school sponsored event...open to the public. I doubt this has anything to do with a teenager in a town near Colorado City.

**Respectfully Snipped**

I thought the same thing... I was thinking that either,
A. They did meet last spring as chasinghalos commented (good point, btw :))
or
B. Cross-country runs in Fall -- kids who are not in CC might possibly call a meet a 'track meet", but even more likely, adults who talk to the kids might re-interpret the word "meet" (which is what a CC event is) to be "track meet" instead of CC meet. (Hope that makes sense). I work in a HS and I do hear adults use the wrong term from time to time...

I could see either as equally possible... Clarification from the friend on when they met this young man (and what events he does-- ie: is he a runner, or was he actually at a track meet doing some other event like shot?) would be very helpful in determining who he is from the other HS staff

czgtz- I may be confused. I took this to mean that Hailey and her friend went to a track meet in a nearby town on the Monday night that Hailey disappeared, and that they went there to meet up with a particular boy.

chasinghalos has a good point. Maybe you meant that Hailey's friend is taking a guess that Hailey might have snuck away to see a boy who she and Hailey had met at a track meet at some time in the past.

Can you clarify please? You have been so helpful, thank you!

OK guys, I have deleted some posts that had information in them that mentioned the bloodhounds. At the request of Hailey's mom, the only information she wants released about the dogs is that they were brought in to search for a scent. There has been NO confirmation that Hailey was or wasn't in a particular place anytime since she was last seen at home. As previously mentioned, Hailey has walked to her dad's house and her friend's house too many times to count.

I would very greatly appreciate those of you who quoted or questioned me on where the scent led the bloodhounds also edit or delete your posts. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

I have been riveted to Jonathan's thread and I can't believe I had no clue this little girl was missing!

Colorado City is a small town about 1 1/2 hours away from me. When I asked my H about the ability of their police dept. to handle this properly, he told me that they actually had disbanded their police department recently and he was surprised to hear from me that there was a spokesperson being identified as the police chief! This leads me to question just how much experience this new chief can have with missing children cases.

My H generally sneers at my online sleuthing efforts, but he surprised me by agreeing to call Chief Bivens to offer any help he might need from Abilene PD. I hope the chief is not too proud to accept it!

Colorado City is a very rural community...people know each other's business I'm sure, and if their teenagers are anything like my kid's friends, nothing ever stays secret for long. They all follow each other's texts and facebook comments etc. If this girl was with any of her friends instead of at the sleepover, kids would be talking about it. It's such a small town, there really wouldn't be any kids who don't know each other...it's not like she could be hanging out with a friend from a school across town that no one else knows...there is only one school to go to!

I'll post whatever I can after H talks to Bivens. He might not tell me much, but I hope he can at least let us know that the cell is being traced for pings and last calls being looked at!

Do you know anything about Lorraine, TX? tia

I just got back after stepping away for a few hours. Thank You to Kimster for deleting my post about the dogs!

In my opinion, the lack of any evidence to indicate where Hailey went combined with the complete absence of communication with her friends about her intentions, indicates that Hailey did not simply run away. Other reasons I don't believe she has chosen to remain missing would include her Myspace and Facebook pages. Most kids her age post several times per day. Hailey posted sporadicly, posted about girls she didn't get along with, boys she liked, her belief in God, cute babies and band concerts. This is not a child who, like too many young teens, was trying to look much older or attract attention from the drug or party crowd. Hailey seems like a normal 13yr. old girl on the very young side of her teen years.

I hope that lie detector is being put to good use. I hope that police got to any local store security tapes before they were recorded over. I hope they notice any suspicious activity by other persons, even if Hailey does not appear on any of the tapes.

Thank You to all friends and family posting here, you are so important in the search for Hailey and supporting her parents!

My heart and prayers go out to Hailey's family. My 17 year old daughter decided to pull a fast one on us a few months ago. She said she was spending the night with a friend but went elsewhere. We live in a small community too and someone called and told on her. A man tried to get her to get in his truck, she ran into the woods and was lost for about 6 hours while the police from all surounding areas were out looking for her. Thank God my child was found unharmed but I told my husband that night that I don't know how parents of missing children survive. I will be praying for Hailey and her family.

I don't believe that there is no activity happening to find Hailey - can anybody local share any insight into what is being done at the investigative level? Fliers are posted, a vigil planned for Sunday night. Did the ground search headed by her school happen - where did they search?
There has been no news in MSM all day but surely things are being done - have any polygraphs been given/taken?
Are some family members myspace accounts being brought down for privacy reasons or at the request of LE? It is hard to erase all information from the internet. Is the man in the profile picture for the mother her boyfriend or would that be a picture of Hailey's father?
Have all the RSO's been thoroughly checked out - there is one that lives on Chestnut Street and there are about 8 who live in the small town of Colorado City - about 3 of them are RSO because of involvement with children.
It is not very often that I look at a 13 year old myspace/facebook and see comments like "bored sitting here with nana" or the only thing I read is the Bible. I don't often see comments like "I believe in God". This is not what we usually see for 13 year olds on MySpace.
I live streamed the local Colorado City radio for about 2 hours and there is no mention of Hailey that I noticed - granted I had a few interruptions from my 13 yo girl and may have missed it.
It is all about exposure and getting the word out at this point. For the life of me I cannot figure out what LE would have on hand to say that there is no foul play and they are treating her as a runaway. They should be looking at every angle as I am sure they are.
Agreeing with TGI (I think it was TGI) that this is a very young teen and one who is not into the stuff that we see some 13 year olds that have come to light here at WS.
Has there been any further word on tracking down the older boy that Hailey may have been interested in?

Respectfully snipped by me...

Don't hold me to this...but I know with Facebook if you use an ITouch to update or post it will state that it was done by an IPhone...maybe Myspace is the same way? I think czgtz stated somewhere that Hailey doesn't have a cellphone.

MySpace is almost certainly logging the IP address, which can be traced to a cell carrier (and cell phone), wifi hotspot, etc.

TGIR,

I spend my time on here applauding your posts. Again, thank you for reminding me how smart you are. You are so correct with Hailey's appearance. While it's possible she ran away, we have two social media sites that show her as a fairly happy, upbeat, good girl. We have no 'look at my bra/belly/booty' photos. We have no sex or drug references. We have nothing remotely alarming, shocking, or even mildly disturbing about what Hailey was into, what she was doing, and even among her friends (outside of them withholding information). She seems to adore her family, her friends....and has no clear reason to run away.
At this point, I really hope and pray that Hailey just ran away.

I am considering going to the candlelight vigil tonight. I really don't want to go alone. It is about 90 miles from Abilene and I have to get the kids to school tomorrow morning.

The vigil starts at 7:30. Anyone else from the Abilene area interested in checking it out? I'm thinking about going a bit early...maybe find the local DQ or wherever locals hang out, catch the vigil for an hour or so and make it back home around 10-ish.

Redcat or czgzt- do you know if KTXS, KRBC, or KTXS plan on being there? It would be a great opportunity for Billie to go on camera...people really pay attention when they see a mother personally asking for their help!

I just found this thread and I am 99% sure this girl did NOT runaway. When I was 13 I ran away with my niece who was abused at home so she wouldnt have to go alone. We never once thought what it would do to our mothers. Luckily we were found the same night.

I dont feel she ran away for a number of reasons. I see no indication of abuse. If she ran away to see a boy of her age we would here hes missing too. Where would 2 young teens hide out for this amount of time.

If she left of he own accord you can bet her best friend knows something more than shes saying. Her not wanting to tell what she knows is something they really need to hone in on.

Id be looking into if shes met with an older man anytime in the near past. They have a way of making young girls feel they are the light of the world.

If there is a problem with the moms BF or dads GF the brother would know. These are thing siblings even in the fueding years will share with each other.

I feel LE needs to be checking her online activity very closely. I love the net for many reasons and hate it for just as many.

Seems to me even though Mom and Dad are divorced they both take a daily intrest in these kids. I dont think bad parenting is a part of this.

My best guess is she met with someone online or some unruly character in the neighborhood.

Hailey seems like a well rounded inocent kid. I have a feeling shes ok. I think she just got herself in way over her head and doesnt know how to get out of the situation shes in or is too scared of being in trouble to come home.

I hope to heaven im right but I have a good feeling about this one. PRAYERS TO HER FAMILY!!! JMO

Although I really, really hope that I am wrong, I do agree with the general consensus that this is not a simple run away. Too much time has passed without any sign from Hailey. As I mentioned in a previous post, Hailey is a good kid. IF she did simply run away, then I really think that by now she would have contacted her family or a friend to at least let everyone know that she was OK.

TGIR, as far as I know, no polygraphs have been administered yet.

To everyoneneedsavoice, I am sure that Billie would be very grateful for you to put fliers up. I pass your offer to her later this morning. If you would go ahead and PM me your e-mail address I will get a copy of the official flyer with the offer of a reward to you as soon as I talk to Billie.

To the questions that elepher50 raised..... "Several citizens met at the Colorado Middle School on Friday morning and fanned out across Colorado City to pass out flyers. An impromptu base was set up at the CMS cafeteria for volunteers wanting to help. Some Colorado High School students also traveled to Sweetwater to pass out flyers, expanding the search area in hope of finding the missing girl." This is from our weekly newspaper's site. Here is the link to the full story, which was posted online December 31st at 7:57PM:

http://ccitynews.net/news/story/2010/12/police-track-new-leads-search-missing-girl

An earlier story, posted December 29th at 7:07PM has this info: "Police have backtracked their steps since Dunn's disapperance, talking again with family members, friends and knocking on neighborhood doors. 'We're back where we started yesterday,' Bivins said. Dunn has been entered into the Region 5 broadcast system, which alerts surrounding counties and beyond." Again, here is the link to the full story:

http://ccitynews.net/news/story/2010/12/reports-missing-girls-death-unfounded

Unfortunately, I get an access denied message if I try to go back and look at the earlier postings. I do not subscribe to the paper, nor have I tried to sign up for an online account, if that is even possible without subscribing. Perhaps redcat is a subscriber, and can access the earlier stories. I do know that Thursday a group of citizens searched the local park, and perhaps some other areas, and then went door to door passing out flyers. And before the bloodhounds were brought in, LE did search around town and check abandoned houses, storm cellars, etc.

KVMC, the local radio station, is playing a plea for information fairly regularly.

I absolutely hate myspace, and never look there. I have no idea why the pages were taken down.

On the FB page that redcat started, the publisher of the newspaper posted "Visit coloradorecord.com for updated information. Website is updated every time the PD calls with info, which is 2 - 3 times a day". But the last update was December 31, 2010 - 7:57pm. Here is the FB link again:

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Find-Hailey-Dunn/165260016852020

I know that Hailey's picture and info have gone out first regionally and then statewide to any agency with a Copsync system. I saw that another poster whose husband was with the Abilene PD have him call our PD and offer assistance, but got an answering machine. Did Chief Bivins return his call and take him up on the offer? The Texas Rangers know that Hailey is missing, but will they come in if local LE calls it a runaway? And at this point, if there is no evidence of anything, no one admits to knowing anything, and the searches have turned up a whole lot of nothing, then what else can be done at this point besides making sure it gets media attention (which, by the way, there needs to be more of)?

I am not faulting the LE agencies involved, really. I am sure they are doing everything in their power. I know that they have pulled some all-nighters. And I am sure that they are frustrated to have not discovered much of anything. This being such a small town, it effects everyone.... I am 100% sure that every single person involved in the investigation cares about getting Hailey home safely and that is truely their number one objective.

That said, IMHO only, I do not feel that it is right to continue to treat Hailey as a runaway simply because LE hasn't "found any evidence of foul play or abduction." By now it should be a moot point whether she was really going to her friend's house to spend the night or was planning something else because Hailey is only 13, she has been missing for nearly a week, and there is no telling who or what she might have encountered since Monday. Just because there is no evidence of foul play does not mean that there was no foul play. To me, labeling Hailey a runaway just seems to downplay the seriousness of the situation.

Sorry for the rambling. I have two daughters myself, and I am just sick over this. All of the many people who love and care for Hailey are heartsick. Everyone has been affected by this, even people who don't know her. I can't even begin to imagine how Billie must be feeling. Not to downplay how much Hailey's dad, or brother, or the rest of her family loves her, but I think just about the worst thing in the world is for a mother to lose her child - even temporarily.

All week long, I have been trying to convince myself that Hailey is around here somewhere. Even though she is a good kid, I want to believe that she tried to pull a fast one on her mom and go do something that she wasn't supposed to, but wasn't able to get back home in time to get away with it. Worried about getting in trouble, she stayed away from home a while longer to try and think of an excuse. Saw or heard that the police had been called, and figured that she was going to be in a world of trouble when she went home, so she decided to go for broke and have a last hurrah on New Year's Eve before showing up to face the music. Since she has had ample time to get home from that little scenario that has been playing in my head, even my overactive imagination can't come up with anything else.

Wherever Hailey is, I pray that she is safe and secure, and that she is found sooner rather than later with not one hair on her head touched. And I pray that everyone who loves Hailey is able to cope and find some kind of peace until she is found, and not lose hope.

TGIR, we would love for you to come to the prayer vigil. Please bring all of your wisdom and experience with you. I would really like to meet you, and I'm sure redcat would too. The DQ is just north of I-20 on the west side of town. Take the exit after Woods Boots and Fort Wood, which are on the south side of I-20. Don't hold your breath on finding many people there though. I am sending you a PM with my phone number, so you can call for directions to the school if you do decide to come.

I just talked to Billie. She has not talked to any TV stations, but said that she would really like to get some media coverage. I will try calling the stations, but if any of you have a solid contact, I would really appreciate it if you could call also.

I wil just go ahead and apologize to anyone who might be offended by my opinion. A little girl who is too young and small-town sheltered to survive safely on her own is missing, and I think that the time has come for the local PD to call in an organization with more expertize. Yesterday would not be soon enough!

Interim Chief Bivens may be the most dedicated cop in Texas, but I feel safe in assuming that he has had very limited, if any, specialized training and experience in this type of missing persons case. Here we are almost one week out, and it appears that the chief is simply taking Mom's boyfriend's word for what Hailey told him and the circumstances under which she left. I don't care if the boyfriend is a church deacon, that is just an sloppy way to investigate such a serious case. It is easy to blame the lack of info on kids who are afraid to talk and I'm not buying it. I suspect that Hailey's family understandably does not want to risk offending the only LE in town by insisting on outside help. MOO

With all due respect to those who have worked night and day and have done all they know to do to find this precious child; Billie, it's time to take out your Mama Bear and insist on speaking directly with a Texas Ranger. If anyone close to you tries to discourage you from going up the LE ladder until you get acceptable results, pull rank. You gave birth to Hailey; she is counting on you to be her voice when she is in danger! You need to put yourself in charge because no one can protect your baby better than you can.

This is my opinion only, and I am no one important...I'm just a mom of young teen girls who happens to feel a weird calling. I have followed these types of cases online for almost ten years. I've seen how the cases are handled and which ones are solved. I just want this little West Texas girl to be found.

I agree with you, TGIR, that the local PD should probably ask for more help. In the Tiffany Speck case a few months ago the Des Moines PD got help from the FBI (http://www.kcci.com/news/25672829/detail.html) even though there were conflicting reports of LE treating her disappearance as both a runaway and possible foul play. Tiffany had even run away for a few days before. She camped next to a river for a few days, within earshot of searchers, and charges were filed against a woman (http://www.kcci.com/r/25830645/detail.html) who let 13 year old Tiffany secretly stay in her house during her relatively highly publicized weeklong disappearance.

There was also a case this year of a young girl hiding in a home associated with her boyfriend even while the boyfriend was being suspected of foul play. I believe she was older, I didn't follow the case too closely, maybe somebody else remembers it better. Anyway, I don't mean in any way to downplay the seriousness of Hailey going missing but just saying that hopefully someone is helping her hide, even though it's a rotten thing to do. It's definitely not outside the realm of possibility but obviously things change the longer she stays missing.

No matter what, LE should be treating this with the highest urgency and bringing in all the resources in their power.

TGI, I completely agree with your post 143. Especially about the BF. He's the only verified person as last having seen this child. And if the others are being vague in their answers about when they last saw this child, well that should not be acceptable to LE.

I wil just go ahead and apologize to anyone who might be offended by my opinion. A little girl who is too young and small-town sheltered to survive safely on her own is missing, and I think that the time has come for the local PD to call in an organization with more expertize. Yesterday would not be soon enough!

This is my opinion only, and I am no one important...I'm just a mom of young teen girls who happens to feel a weird calling. I have followed these types of cases online for almost ten years. I've seen how the cases are handled and which ones are solved. I just want this little West Texas girl to be found.

Respectfully snipped by me for space considerations: I have already emailed the chief asking that this be stepped up to find Hailey and that from what I see I do not believe she is a runaway. Also suggesting that extra help be brought in for investigative purposes. Also RSO's with one on the same street (Chestnut) be thoroughly checked out. Also how about a presser for information known/not known. Also how about putting information on their website regarding Hailey being missing and the reward money. This really, really isn't too much to ask for Hailey. I am really feeling strongly about this.

Here is what was sent to the chief:

The fact that Hailey Dunn is missing since December 27th has been brought to my attention. After reviewing what information is known about this disappearance I sincerely request that you consider the following to move this case forward. These are all suggestions for consideration and in no way are intended to downplay the work your department has and is doing:

1. Check out all RSO’s in Colorado City (one lives on Chestnut – the same street as Hailey)
2. Enlist the assistance of Texas Rangers and TES (Tim Miller)
3. Put huge banner on your website making it known that Hailey is missing and the reward money offered
4. Hailey does not from what I have seen on MySpace and Facebook appear to be the “runaway type”
5. Hailey is what I would consider a young 13 year old female meaning not into what some 13 year olds are now a days
6. Ensure polygraphs are administered to father, mother, step mother, and mother’s boyfriend
7. Hold a press conference and lay out the facts as your department knows them to be

Please give these suggestions careful consideration and they are submitted with all due respect to you and your department whom I am sure are diligently working around the clock to bring Hailey home safely.

I'm not sure if this situation calls for TES. Some of you may be more familiar with them than I am, but I always thought they came in to search particular areas of interest -- fields, swamps, etc. Since there are not specific target areas, I don't think they would know where to begin, KWIM?

I need to make it absolutely clear that all of my speculation and posting is done from my personal point of view. This online sleuthing is something my husband puts up with begrudgingly. He offered assistance as a professional courtesy, just as he would for any nearby agency. He did not like the fact that I posted even that little bit of info online. (Oopsie!):innocent:

What is done is done, and all I can do is leave any reference to his work out of it from now on. I'm still here, but I'm just a concerned citizen who may or may not be married to a handsome, smart, macho, hard working professional law enforcement officer, but if I told you, I'd have to...(you know). :truce:

I am really shocked that Hailey is still missing. I wish we knew if she even intended to go to her friend's house, I think I read there was some doubt about that? If she was truly expected and did not show, that is scary. It's scary anyway, but possibly more likely she went off on her own with someone, for whatever reason, if that was more of an excuse for her mom as to where she would be. I know I did that and my friend would have covered for a while...but probably not this whole long week. Especially if Hailey is without a phone and no one has heard from her.

I don't know what TES would do in a case like this as I do think they need a starting point to search; are there are woods or open fields between her dad's house and friend's home, or the hotel?

I've read through this whole thread and I have to agree about the boyfriend. I mean he was the last one to see her. One thing that struck me was czgtz saying that it was unclear if Hailey even made it across the street. I don't know about anyone else but right then I thought something might be up with the boyfriend because to me if it's unclear if she made it across to street that seems like a red flag to me that something is up with that story. I mean I don't know. Just weird.

OK Guys I have seen a lot of people in here say they would like to get some coverage for Haiely and I have a good way as to how we can get this going! First off most definetely contact Nancy Grace! You can email her at nancygrace@cnn.com I agree completely bomb her with emails.

Another way is through twitter. If you don't have a twitter account I urge you to get one! It's very easy to do and would take like two minutes to make one. www.twitter.com for those of you that don't know what it is.

I have found several news outlets by going through Richelle Carey's list of people that she follows. Those of you that know Richelle know she works for HLN! BOMB her @replies about Haiely but make sure you use #FindHaileyDunn for the tag in your post so we can get it in the twitter trending search which means if we get her trending it will definitely get some recognition via the main stream media and it would also get other people that don't know about her on it as well. Here are other twitters that you could follow and do the same thing. I found several twitters for Texas TV Stations. Others are for HLN and CNN.

But I AM here and though I've been very tight on time, should have time to catch up later tonight. It hasn't been long since I was a 13 year old girl, so I wanted to look at this one. I'm sure there are several others who are reading and not posting as well.

I have looked at her MS and her FB and I am not getting a runaway feeling here, just not.
Where is LE's indication of a runaway ...

I mean if she was walking down the road and abducted what are they expecting to find if it happens where no one sees ?

Or if she was offered a ride and she gets into someones car,wether someone she knows or doesnt, the silence is deafing....

I sent e-mails and left messages with several other TV stations in surrounding towns where I couldnt get ahold of someone. I was able to talk to people at CBS7 in Midland and KMAC in Lubbock. While they will not be able to get here tonight with such short notice, they both want to do an interview with Billie and get the word out about Hailey. I emailed some information and links to KMAC, and they said that they could possibly get something on the air tonight. Best of all, KMAC has an affiliation with CNN, and said that they would share all information with them.

Hi StrayKat,

Hailey is being treated as a runaway by LE as they have no evidence of foul play. There are some of us on WS who do not believe that she is the runaway type. Colorado City is small enough that LE and a band of citizens could have lapped every square inch of it a few times now.

Mother Billie is giving interviews and posters have been put out including surrounding towns.

Don't know what else to say.

Hello,

I live in Colorado City, and Hailey's mom, Billie, is one of my dearest friends. I would like to answer some of the questions that have been raised here, and add some information to what has already been posted.

First of all, a little background information. Hailey lives with her mom, Billie, and her 16 year old brother, David, in the 1800 block of Chestnut St., Colorado City, TX. Billie's boyfriend frequently stays there also. Billie and Hailey's dad, Clint, are divorced. Clint and his girlfriend live nearly directly across the street from Billie.

On Monday, December 27th, Billie was at work in Snyder, TX. Her boyfriend was at her home with Hailey. David was in and out, but not home when Hailey left. Hailey told her mom's boyfriend that she was going to walk across the street to see her dad, and then go on to her friend's house to spend the night. As previously mentioned, Colorado City is a very small town. Kids here walk around pretty freely. Hailey did not take anything with her when she left the house.

Tuesday afternoon, Billie told David to text Hailey's friend to tell her to come home. Hailey does not have her own cell phone. Hailey's friend told David that she never arrived on Monday. This seems to be a grey area... Hailey's friend is saying that she did not know for sure if Hailey was coming over or not. At this point, Billie was understandably panicked. She contacted Clint's girlfriend, who first said that yes, Hailey did come over Monday, but later said that she was not sure if she saw her or not. Another grey area. At this point, it is like Hailey disappeared into thin air while crossing the street.

The police were contacted, and an investigation was started. The Colorado City Police Department, the Mitchell County Sheriff's Department, and the District Attorney and that office's investigators are all involved. While the law enforcement agencies have done some searching, an official 'man-hunt' type search has not been held. Someone to give polygraphs came in today, but I do not think any have been given yet.

Quite a few people - friends, family, aquaintances, neighbors - have been interviewed. Friends and family have been putting up fliers here in Colorado City and in neighboring communities. Local moms have searched the park and other areas for signs of Hailey. Prayer vigils are set to be held. We are doing everything we can think of. The only thing that has not been done is for Billie to try and find a TV station to let her make an on air plea for Hailey's safe return. She is supposed to meet with KTXS this coming Monday, but of course we are hoping that Hailey will be back home by then.

Billie is a good person and a loving mom. She is beside herself at this point, and does not know what to think. Despite rumors to the contrary, Hailey has never run away before.

Rumors of course are flying: Hailey's body has been found, Hailey has run away with her boyfriend, Hailey is hiding here in town at someone's house that no one would think to look, etc. etc. etc. We don't know what to think or what to believe. Right now we are just hoping and praying for Hailey's safe return. It warms my heart to see people who don't even know us doing all they can to help. Please continue to keep Hailey and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

If anyone has any other questions, I will do my best to answer them. Ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much.

UPDATE: As I was finishing this up, I spoke with Billie, who said that police have brought in bloodhounds. The dogs did pick up a scent. Also, a neighbor saw Hailey on the phone in her backyard for about 30 minutes Monday afternoon. A woman has come forward and said that she is fairly certain that she saw Hailey with another girl and a boy walking late Monday evening. It has also come to light that Hailey had been talking to a boy in a neighboring town. The police are investigating these leads. Hopefully, this new information will lead us to Hailey.

I am bumping cztgz's post for those of us that are just coming in.

She is a dear friend of Haileys mother, she has been wonderful in helping keep us updated. :blowkiss:

As far as RSO in the area there are 24, almost half have comitted crimes against children Hailey's age, and we are not sure if the have been interviewed or not.

One more thing.... I don't have time to clear up all of the questions that have been raised in the past couple of hours because I have to get ready and get to the prayer vigil for Hailey, but there is one thing that I absolutely must set straight.

Billie's boyfriend and Clint's girlfriend are NOT related in any way, shape, or form. Even though I already knew that, I called Billie and checked with her before I posted. She said absolutely not.

I would like to know why you would even think that... or where you heard it. I promise that I am not trying to be rude, but bringing up something like that, which IMO is ridiculous, only further muddies the waters in an already very difficult situation.

EDIT: Thanks for bumping my post mysticrose. Hopefully that will clear up a lot. Everyone please continue to pray for Hailey's safe return.

BBM. That's something I'd like clarified if anyone has a definite answer.

Was it ever confirmed that there was a planned sleepover that night or did that info come from the BF who claims that Hailey mentioned a sleepover? TIA.

snipped from czgtz post

On Monday, December 27th, Billie was at work in Snyder, TX. Her boyfriend was at her home with Hailey. DD (Hailey's brother) was in and out, but not home when Hailey left. Hailey told her mom's boyfriend that she was going to walk across the street to see her dad, and then go on to her friend's house to spend the night. As previously mentioned, Colorado City is a very small town. Kids here walk around pretty freely. Hailey did not take anything with her when she left the house.

Tuesday afternoon, Billie told DD to text Hailey's friend to tell her to come home. Hailey does not have her own cell phone. Hailey's friend told DD that she never arrived on Monday. This seems to be a grey area... Hailey's friend is saying that she did not know for sure if Hailey was coming over or not. At this point, Billie was understandably panicked. She contacted Clint's girlfriend, who first said that yes, Hailey did come over Monday, but later said that she was not sure if she saw her or not. Another grey area. At this point, it is like Hailey disappeared into thin air while crossing the street.

TGI, I completely agree with your post 143. Especially about the BF. He's the only verified person as last having seen this child. And if the others are being vague in their answers about when they last saw this child, well that should not be acceptable to LE.

I agree. The loose-ends for me are:

- the BF being the last one to see her (not attacking him personally - don't even know his name - but naturally the last one to see a missing person should be questioned thoroughly and repeatedly)

- the Dad's GF (wife?) saying she saw her but now can't recall if she did or not. Did she or did she not see her? And what time was that?

- the friend (she needs to come clean on EVERYTHING she knows)

- the boy Hailey and her friend met at the track meet (what happened to that story? has he been checked out? why is the friend mentioning him now in relation to Hailey being missing, unless there has been some recent contact?)

- what happened to the whole hound scent thing? Seems like there was some truth there but no more news on that end? (I know it's been pulled from here -- but, if my child were missing I would want EVERY angle covered. Even if she went willingly that day/night with someone (which we of course don't know), I am 100% positive that something has happened since that is preventing her from returning home - being held against her will, being harmed, etc.)

I know there are friends of the family here, and I don't want to offend anyone. But there are two forums right? One for sleuthing and one for support? Not trying to cause trouble here but it seems like there are a lot of gaps.

I hope she is found and comes home soon... Prayers for Hailey and her family.

Dosen't Warren Jeff's cult have a place near CCity? They "marry" little girls, and from what Ive read, when their male children become young teenagers thewy are often kicked out on the streets because the old pervert men want all of the young "wives" for their child brides. Young fellas are too much competiton, you know! I wonder if there are any of these ostracizrd young men in the area who might think it would be nice to have a young bride of their own? I hope not!

It's so puzzling to me... I grew up in a small town not much bigger than that. And you would think someone would have seen her that afternoon - walking up the street, or whatever. You can do anything in a small town without anyone knowing - and people in small towns love to talk. So it really is like she just disappeared... :(

If y'all will just look at the tags at the very bottom of the page, under the bookmarks (or hit the post reply button, and they are right above the reply box), you will see both parents full names. I don't know what the rules are about posting the last names.

Assistance and/or available resources were offered as a professional courtesy, since APD was aware that their department had endured some pretty deep cuts in staffing.

All of my posts after that are my opinions only, and I am just a mom.

According to previous posts by czgtz who is confirmed as a source, the only person who Hailey supposedly told about a sleepover or stopping by Dad's home is Mom's boyfriend. He has told police that he was alone with Hailey at her mom's home when she told him she was leaving and where she was going. He is apparently the only one she told, and no, he does not live with them, he was just there. There have been zero confirmed sightings after that and no communication thru Myspace of Facebook.

I think alot of young girls do that. I believe that Brittany Smith's said something like 16 and she's 12. I posted this earlier, but it really bothers me to see these young girls on FB and MS - using curse words to sound cool, etc. And having everything available to the public, to anyone - to us, to SOs, to anyone. I didn't see her parents listed as friends on either site. I saw one adult on FB who would ask her 'what does that mean' when she would do something like quote crazy lyrics from a song. It's so important for parents to have a visible presence on their children's internet sites. Seriously. Something needs to be done... it should be a requirement that a parent not just give permission but also be a 'friend' and have access.

Sorry - just on my soapbox about the internet and young teens...
