COLORADO CITY — Even as temperatures began to fall and light gave way to evening Friday, volunteers searching for clues in the Dec. 27 disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Darlene Dunn continued combing fields and wooded areas in northern Colorado City.
The team of volunteers – numbering well more than 100 local residents and concerned citizens from surrounding communities – was lead Friday by Stephanie Boyd, who undertook the enormous task of coordinating the search.
“I want to bring Hailey home,” Boyd told volunteers. “That is my main concern right now. She deserves to be with her family, she deserves to be safe, she deserves to be warm. So anything you find, whether you think it's relevant or not, let somebody know.”
Hailey Darlene Dunn, an eighth grade student at Colorado Middle School, was last seen walking from her home in northern Colorado City to a friend's house about 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 27, according to Interim Colorado City Police Chief John Bivins.
Boyd met with volunteers at approximately 2 p.m. in downtown Colorado City to plan the search, which would center around fields and wooded areas north of the Subway sandwich shop on the north service road of Interstate Highway 20 and a nearby cotton gin.
