December 27th marked the 2 year anniversary of the disappearance of CMS student Hailey Dunn. She was last seen leaving her home on Chestnut Street, on her way to a friend's home, but she never made it. A prayer vigil was held this past Saturday in her honor. Yesterday, volunteers retraced Hailey's steps in what was called a "Walk of Faith". Thanks to Glenda Turner for providing these pictures from the event.
