COAHOMA — The fact is as cold as Saturday morning's temperatures — Hailey Dunn could be just about anywhere. But neither that fact nor the chilly weather was going to stop a group of area residents from searching for her, anyway.
About 30 people gathered Saturday in this community, located about 25 miles west of the missing Colorado City teenager's home, to begin scouring Howard County for the girl.
Dunn, 13, was last seen near her home around 1 p.m. Dec. 27, wearing navy sweatpants, a short-sleeve, light-colored T-shirt, flip-flops and red hoop earrings.
Law enforcement personnel, ranging from Mitchell County deputies to FBI agents, have joined the investigation into the teenager's disappearance.
A group of Howard County residents joined the search effort Friday, scouring the area between Rattlesnake Gap at the Howard-Mitchell county line to Moss Lake. Saturday, the group concentrated its efforts further west, and vowed to keep the search going for at least the next several days.
