In an interview with KTAB's Priscilla Luong Wednesday, Dunn said national search groups coming to Colorado City to assist are giving her renewed hope.
"Somebody is going to find my daughter," said Dunn. "We have a lot of people looking now and I'm really glad KlaasKids and the Laura Recovery Center were able to come down and get involved."
Dunn said developments were causing her to hit a low point. She says that's now starting to change.
"I'm hopeful again and going to remain that way," said Dunn. "I think someone is going to find my daughter."
Dunn says she's been speaking with members of both search groups. She says having them there has been a huge help.
"They're able to give me some advice and give me a little bit of comfort," said Dunn. "I can't really be comforted, but there are good people up there to talk to. They've been talking to me a lot since they've been here."
Dunn said she also appreciates everyone who is volunteering their time to search. However, she's happy they haven't found anything.
"I'm glad they're looking, but each day I'm hoping they don't find anything out there in the dirt. That's not the way that I want them to find her," added Dunn.
