Normal # 1 - Hailey Dunn Missing from Colorado City, TX/ Hailey's disappearance now a criminal matter/ Shawn Adkins primary suspect/ Billie Dunn: Unnamed Person Could Have Information

Post by lisette on Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:14 pm



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.

Nancy Grace covered this case Mon. night. The mother was on and said that she was at work when her (the mother's) boyfriend got home Mon., Dec. 27, around 3:30. He said that Hailey was going to walk down to her father's house (a few houses away), and then up the street in the opposite direction four-five blocks to her friend's house to spend the night. According to the mother, a neighbor saw her in the backyard around 12:30, but no one reported seeing her walking to her dad's or friend's. This is different from what is stated in the article above. The boyfriend told the mother where Hailey was when she got home, but no calls were made to confirm that Hailey did indeed arrive at the friend's house. The mother got up Tues. and went to work. She called her son and told him to call the friend's house and tell Hailey to come home by lunchtime. When he called he found out that she never got to the friend's house, and in checking further, found that she never went to her father's house Mon. either. I'm sure the boyfriend is being checked out, but I guess the son was there and can confirm his story. I just don't get why there was no communication Mon. evening with the friend's house to check on Hailey by the mother. Perhaps she had gone there many times to spend the night, and it just didn't seem like anything was out of the normal. This just underscores how important it is to keep a close check on where our kids are at all times....This girl was missing for almost 24 hours before anyone even knew she was gone! crying

Normal Texas Rangers Get Involved In Hunt For Missing Colorado City Teen

Post by Nama on Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:30 pm

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.
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.

she didn't take anything

Would a 13-year-old go to a friend's to spend the night and not take anything with her? This sounds like she either never intended to go there, or this is just the story that the boyfriend is telling...

My child is a friend of Hailey's. I know Hailey. Hailey did NOT leave on her own. As to the mothers boyfriend, he is anything but a "good ole boy". Hats off to Sheriff Tombs for speaking up. Please someone help our town find Hailey. Our children are scared, and Hailey's classmates are all asking why no Amber Alert, why more isn't being done to bring Hailey home.

Post by Nama on Mon Jan 03, 2011 10:50 pm

An emotional week for Billie Jean Dunn when her 13-year old daughter Hailey disappeared.

Several agencies are now stepping in to assist Colorado City Police in the search for Hailey Dunn, and as KTAB sat down with Billie Jean, she says the message she wants to send to her daughter is simple.

"I want her to know that I have to have her back," she said, with tears in her eyes, "her dad has to have her back we're torn up."

Seven days later, and still no sign of 13-year old Hailey.

"We love her and if she left on her own free will, or whatever reason she left, we can fix it," Billie Jean said, "we can deal with it."

The popular teen at Colorado City Middle School vanished without a trace just two days after Christmas.

"This is so out of character," said Billie Jean.

"This is not like her at all," said Shawn Adkins, a family friend.

Billie Jean says her daughter disappeared after telling Mom she was going to Dad's house before visiting her best friend, but Hailey never made it to either destination.

"It's been terrible, it's been very sad around here," said Billie Jean.

One week later, Billie Jean still can't figure out why her daughter would leave home.

"She's a wonderful girl, she has a little attitude sometimes, but not a bad kid," Billie Jean explained, "I've never had to worry about hailey doing anything bad such as run away or do drugs, sex, anything of that nature, I don't worry about that."

Authorities say they are treating Hailey's story as a runaway case because there was no signs of foul play, but family and friends say Hailey never packed her bags.

"That raised some red flags to us," said Adkins, "really, really worried us."

As Texas Rangers and Police continue their search for Hailey, her mother prays for her little girl's safe return.

"God gave her to us, and we want her back," she said.

There's still many questions that have yet to be answered, but as the story unfolds, Hailey's mother hopes the case closes with her youngest child back in her arms.

The Chief of Police in Colorado City tells KTAB officers are following several leads at this time, and won't rest until Hailey makes it home safe.

Both of these videos start with the same commercial but they are different. One showing the mother at the vigil with who I think is the father.

The other one showing mom at home with who I think is the boyfriend.

They all look shifty to me.

PFF it surely never does.

How is it a young girl is home alone with moms boyfriend time and time again. Don't these women think.
BF says she left to go to her dads home at 3. Dad says she never arrived and friend said she wasn't expected at her home either for a sleepover.

One thing that is puzzling is that there seems to have been a brother home with her the day she disappeared. So there would have been Hailey, moms bf and the brother.

I am sure they are questioning all of them.

Anybody know anything about the Texas Rangers? Are they like state police.

The father is the one I thought looked shifty.....he's probably just nervous.

The brother was at home on the day Hailey went missing, but he was NOT at home when she left the house.

Something tells me that something is not right with this bf...Wonder how long he's been around. The son not being home when Hailey supposedly left means that we only have the bf's word that she said she was going to father's and then to friend's...Wonder if anybody saw his vehicle leaving between the time he got home and the mother got home.

I read on another blog that the mother and her boyfriend, Shawn, have been together over a year and the father and his new wife have a baby that was born in November. It doesn't sound like the boyfriend lives full time with the mother.....he just stays there on occasion. Shawn Adkins shows up as having lived in Dunn, TX.
The mother and the father are both 33 years old.
The boyfriend picked up the mother from work.

Friends and family members of a missing Colorado City teenager said Monday that although they hope 13-year-old Hailey Dunn has simply run away and is just scared to come home, they don’t believe it’s in her character to simply vanish.

Billie Dunn, Hailey’s mother, said Colorado City police earlier had been investigating the case as a runaway.

“But someone could have taken her,” she said.

In a statement released Monday afternoon, Colorado City interim Police Chief John Bivins said the case now is being worked as a missing person investigation and that police were pursuing leads.

Billie Dunn said her boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was the last person to see Hailey, who reportedly was last seen at 3:15 p.m. Dec. 27.

Adkins, who lives with Billie Dunn, Hailey, and Billie’s 16-year-old son, reportedly said Hailey told him she was going to stop by her father’s house, which is in walking distance of their home, and then was planning to spend the night with a friend.

Hailey’s Dunn’s home is within blocks of Interstate 20.

Billie Dunn, who was working a 12-hour hospital shift that day, said she was a little upset when her daughter did not call her later to confirm that she was staying with a friend. However, she said she never was worried that she was somewhere else.

“That’s something I never really worried about with her,” she said.

At about 1 p.m. Dec. 28, Dunn asked her son to text Hailey’s friend to get a message to Hailey that it was time to come home. Hailey does not own a cell phone, Dunn said.

The friend replied that she had not seen Hailey and was unaware that Hailey had said she was going to spend the night with her.

Billie Dunn said she then called Hailey’s father, Clint Dunn, who said he had not seen his daughter.

Billie then contacted police.

On Wednesday night, Billie Dunn said police questioned family members at the station and began searching the neighborhood. She said the police also searched her home, as well as the home of the friend whom Hailey said she was going to visit.

“It’s not like her to run away,” Billie Dunn reiterated. “She’s a 13-year-old little girl.”

Billie Dunn said she and her daughter had the usual parent-teen arguments, but the last time she had seen her daughter, she was in good spirits.

“I don’t know what to think,” she said. “I hope she’s just scared to come home.”

Adkins, her boyfriend, said he didn’t believe Hailey had run away.

“I feel like it’s an abduction,” he said, adding that a number of sex offenders live in the community.

“I just hope someone out there has heard something or seen her. We just want her to come home. We want this nightmare to end,” Adkins said.

Clint Dunn, who has two other younger children, also said he suspected foul play.

“She’s not the type to run away,” he said. “She has never said anything like that.”

An adult friend of the family, Donna Byerley, also of Colorado City, said Hailey had a close circle of friends and was well liked in school.

“She was very sociable,” she said.

“She was always very honest with me,” Byerley said, adding that if her friend had a problem, Hailey would regularly open up to her. However, Hailey had not told her she was having a problem.

“It’s not like her to up and disappear,” Byerley said.

Billie Dunn, a Colorado City native, praised the support offered by friends and neighbors.

“The community has been great,” she said.

About 750 people showed up at a candlelight vigil Sunday night at Colorado Middle School, where Hailey attends school and participates in band, basketball, track, volleyball and UIL academic events.

Billie Dunn aaid strangers have stopped by to offer prayers and have even brought food. She said members of the community and Hailey’s fellow students also have helped by distributing flyers with Hailey’s photo and information in neighboring communities.

In the news release, Bivins said the Colorado City Police Department is working with the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Department, the district attorney’s office, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Snyder Police Department and the Texas Rangers.

“We will not rest until Hailey is found,” Bivins said is his statement

Billie Dunn said law enforcement officials have not issued an Amber Alert for Hailey because they do not yet have evidence that she has been abducted. An Amber Alert is an emergency broadcast response for missing children, hosted by the U.S. Department of Justice. The guidelines posted on the Amber Alert website state that law enforcement must “confirm an abduction prior to issuing an alert.”

Colorado City police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to Hailey Dunn’s return. Billie Dunn said that amount had grown from $1,000, made possible by community donations.

Dunn said she keeps hoping that her suspicions of foul play are wrong, and that her daughter did run away and is reluctant to come home.

“I want her to know that it’s OK to come home, and we can fix anything. We just want to kiss and hug her,” she said.

Said her father, “If she’s out there, we just want her to come home.”

Added Byerly, “We hope and pray she comes home. The entire community wants her to.”

Post by lisette on Tue Jan 04, 2011 1:55 am

I brought this post over from Websleuths because it had some interesting unreported info...Hope this is not a no-no.

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.

pff, I normally don't like a lot of copying and pasting from other crime blogs (The Hinky Meter is the exception) and I, in particular don't like copying and pasting from this particular site; however, what you posted IMO was completely appropriate and gets the word out. So, thank you!! ~wrap~ you rock

It is refreshing to see a 13 year old girl that looks thirteen.

This afternoon I was thinking about Hailey. I don't believe a 13 year old girl would run away or would go to meet some internet guy dressed like she was dressed. They said she had sweats and a tshirt and gym shoes on. Also she took nothing with her.

Something is not right with this. She does sound like she was dressed to go to her gf's house.

Or the bf or dad is lying and she never had the chance to do anything.

She told her mother's bf she was going to girlfriend's house to spend night but took nothing with her and the girlfriend did not expect her.

Did bf not notice she took nothing for sleepover? possibly, men are sometimes not very observant.Did she have a habit of going to gf's house without prearrangement?
possibly, young teens may be okay with pop-ins.BUT, in my opinion, most likely scenerio if the facts are true is she willingly left with someone she has been talking to in secret. However, if this is a young boy of 15 as she may have beleived, where could they be and wouldn't he be missing also?

I fear she went with someone she thought was 15 but was a preditor OR the mother's bf knows a different story from the one he has told.

I agree that a 13 yr old girl that looks 13 is refreshing. When I was 13 I did tell my Parents I was going to stay with a girlfriend and actually went and did something else. It was very stupid on my part but I was 13. Invincible. Good thing we did not have computers or internet as I may not be here blogging with you all. I was never alone and maybe that is why I am still among the living. If Hailey was alone that was a very dangerous situation for a young girl. She could have wanted to meet up with some one she met on the internet. Being in sweat pants don't fit with her meeting up with some guy. thinking She could be just another runaway.

The sweatpants, the time she left and where she said she was going to be are all statements from the same person. Also, if she did leave with sweatpants, she could have had something else under them.

On NG...blood hounds traced her scent from her house to NEAR the father's house then to the friend's house then a local motel. The motel is only three blocks from her house. I have a question, how do the blood hounds know te scent is from that day, surely she took that route many times? Also the survelience cameras at the motel do not show her. ?????????

I just watched NG and the father looks completely angered. The mother looks like a kid herself. The boyfriend (from the pics up thread) looks "shifty" as I believe Jeanne said.

I don't think this is going to turn out well at all.

I agree about the bf. He lost his job that Monday, some sort of big blow up at work between himself and co-workers. NG did ask about the bloodhounds and how they could know the scent was from that day but the handler didn't answer that question. Maybe the new member with the search and rescue could give us some insight. I think there is a possibility she didn't take that route on that day, mainly because she was not on the survelience at the motel.

With everything I am reading this Hailey seems like a nice kid. Mark Klass is livid that they called this a runaway instead of missing. He said that is le's way of passing the buck to the family.

The mother and father seem to be ok. They are in the middle of a divorce..three years running..but still they seem civil to one another.

There is a puzzle piece we are missing here. I hope the Texas Rangers are "on it".

Time is running out. I hope they find her alive and soon.

Is that motel near I-20? I'm afraid that she has been deceived and that someone she THOUGHT was 15 and from a neighboring town was in fact a predator that has grabbed her and no telling where she is or what has happened to her....

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.

Normal Authorities explain why no Amber Alert issued for missing Colorado City teen

Post by Nama on Wed Jan 05, 2011 12:27 am

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.

Normal Bloodhounds Track Dunn's Scent to Colorado City Motel

Post by Nama on Wed Jan 05, 2011 12:59 am

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."

So Shawn Adkins lost his job on the morning of the day that Hailey disappeared. He seems to becoming the person of interest in the eyes of the public and the media.

Mark Klass is first-class and knows of what he speaks. I completely agree with him, and this b.s. that the boyfriend could not take a poly earlier is just that. If Hailey went missing THE day the bf got canned from his job and he is the last person to see her, Hailey's mother and that hunk of a father needs to grab the bf by the ears and get him down (who looks shifty as all get out) to the police station NOW. Why wait.

Also, the Amber Alert laws need to be changed. LE says it would get too many people excited (paraphrasing) for no reason. I completely disagree. It is better to be SAFE than SORRY. Hailey should have an Amber Alert issued immediately. Time is wasting.

And p.s....when I was 13, I looked about 10.
peace

From what I heard on Nancy Grace last evening the mother says the boyfriend is due to take a poly this morning. We shall see. If he is guilty..he will lawyer up.

Why do these women allow these men to be alone with their young, vulnerable daughters.

Home is supposed to be safe.

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.

Hailey Dunn: Colorado City officials up reward to $25,000; denied Amber Alert

COLORADO CITY, Texas -- The reward for missing 13-year-old Hailey Dunn went from $10,000 to $25,000, thanks to city officials who, according to KTXS News, say they've tried three times for an Amber Alert to be issued in her case, and three times they've been denied.

Can pattywar or someone in the know answer my question from above? How do the bloodhounds know the scent they traced was from that day and not a previous route she would have taken on any other day? I wonder about this especially since the motel video did not capture her nor did any employee see her that day.

Laga, on NG I heard the bloodhound and scents explained. They know if it's a fresh scent or not so much of a fresh scent, if you get a hold of the NG transcripts from last night maybe you'll get a better understanding.
I'm way behind here and haven't read much on this thread but from what I saw on NG, LE dropped the ball on this one. According to the Mom, her b/f was suppose to go in this morning early to take a polygraph and maybe the results have been made public by now, I don't know.

Thanks, Raine, I watched NG last night. She did ask the questions about the bloodhounds I tried to call in about but the handler didn't really answer the question, in my opinion. When he was describing the freshness of the scent he was referring to NG's question,which was, how could the dog detect the direction of the scent. I still do not understand how they could be sure which day the scent was left on that route. Not disbelieving, just do not understand.
