Updates from the search for Hailey Dunn....

Tommorrow will be 2 weeks since 13 year old Hailey Dunn was last seen in Colorado City.  Efforts by local citizens and law enforcement are intensifying every day.  Sparky Dean, Senior Trooper and DPS Spokesman says reports the following agencies are all involved with the investigation:  Colorado City Police Department, Mitchell County Sheriff's Department, Texas Rangers, FBI, DPS, Snyder Police Department, Scurry County Sheriff's Department, Garza County Sheriff's Department, 32nd Judicial District Court and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 
Searches have been organized by Bubba Limones and Stephanie Boyd with hundreds of concerned citizens turning out to comb through fields and adandoned houses in Mitchell and Scurry Counties.  People from Midland, Abilene, San Angelo, Big Spring, Coahoma, Snyder, Sweetwater and all points in between have also been involved in the search. 
A news conference was held Saturday and Jim Baum was there and has these notes from Sparky Dean:  Nobody has been charged with a crime, we have a missing person.  Shawn Adkins is not being restricted to stay in Colorado City and neither is Billie Dunn.  We have more witnesses and some of our witnesses have been deceptive in their answers to law enforcement.  In fact, Dean is quoted as saying "Some of our star witnesses are being less than truthful and this is frustrating our investigators." 
As for Mitchell County, Dean said that the "people have turned out".  Your citizens have fed of the FBI agents told Dean that he had never seen a community effort like the one here in Mitchell County.
Another brief news conference is being planned for 3:45 this afternoon at City Hall.
