It has been a week since a 13-year-old girl from Colorado City has been missing.
Hailey Darlene Dunn was last seen on Monday, Dec. 27, at 1804 Chestnut Street in Colorado City around 1 p.m., wearing navy blue sweatpants, a short sleeved light colored T-shirt and pink and white tennis shoes. Hailey has hazel eyes, pierced ears and brown hair with blondish streaks. She is 5'1" and weighs 120 pounds.
On Friday, Dec. 31, Colorado City citizens spread throughout the city and even into Sweetwater to pass out flyers in an effort to expand the search. According to Colorado City police, investigators are following up leads from phone calls and have met with family, friends and neighbors to find the missing girl.
Hailey was on her way to a friend's house with the intention of spending the night with her friend. When she didn't return home on Tuesday, Hailey's mother became frightfully concerned about her daughter's whereabouts.
The investigation is currently being treated as a runaway. A statewide Amber Alert has not been issued, based on the fact that police do not believe Hailey has met with foul play, nor does evidence suggest a violent abduction.
On Sunday night, Jan. 2, approximately 750 people attended a prayer vigil held at the Colorado Middle School. Several ministers spoke at the vigil and urged those in attendance to pray for Hailey, her family and "those she might be with".
A $10,000 reward, initially set at $1,000 and raised from the $4,500 that was being offered on Friday afternoon, is being offered by the Colorado City Police Department for any information leading to the whereabouts and safe return of Hailey Dunn. Please call 325-728-5294 or 325-728-3161 with any information.
