Crews searched landfills in Colorado City and Snyder Thursday afternoon. One week prior, law enforcement and cadaver dogs searched Abilene's Allied Waste Services.
Additional sources in law enforcement tell bigcountryhomepage.com Thursday's searches were part of the ongoing criminal investigation. To their knowledge, no physical evidence directly linked to Hailey has been discovered.
The landfill searches all center around in investigation into the disappearance of 13-year-old Hailey Dunn. The Colorado City teen went missing on Monday, December 27. The last person to report seeing her is her mother's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins. Adkins is the only named suspect in her disappearance. Authorities continue to say they have several persons of interest.
Law enforcement has confirmed cadaver dogs got "hits" in their Abilene landfill search. Last weekend, Kampfer declared that search to be unsuccessful.
Kampfer tells bigcountryhomepage.com that crews spent Thursday combing over things that may have been missed the during their initial search of those landfills. The first time they went through the Colorado City and Snyder landfills was closer to the time Hailey went missing.
Kampfer says it's always possible investigators found something that pointed them back to the landfill. He also added officers might be reviewing sites that peaked interest during their initial search.
Different dogs were likely brought in to either track down new scents or corroborate things that were previously found, according to Kampfer. He went on to say law enforcement has not told him of future landfill searches. However, he says it wouldn't surprise him.
KTAB's Tiffany Tatro asked Kampfer about the earring that's been talked about in recent "Nancy Grace" broadcasts. After Hailey's disappearance, one of the earrings her mother thought she was wearing on the day she vanished was discovered in her father's home. Her dad, Clint Dunn, says she left it the day before when she stayed at his home. Though Billie Dunn thought he daughter was wearing the earrings, she says it's likely Clint is correct.
Kampfer said he's put in a request to discuss the earring and has not heard back. Therefore, he can't even confirm an earring is part of the investigation.
Earlier this week, KRBC's Jessica Reyes interviewed a witness who believes she saw Hailey walking with a small boy on the morning of her disappearance. According to the witness, it was an African American boy approximately 7 years old.
It now appears that child could be the son of Clint Dunn's girlfriend.
Billie Dunn confirmed Clint's girlfriend has a son that matches this description. Pete Kampfer says he has heard that as well but hasn't received confirmation from law enforcement. Kampfer previously told bigcountryhomepage.com the child has been questioned by authorities.
Kampfer told bigcountryhomepage.com the investigation into Hailey's disappearance continues to have a criminal focus. After receiving 10 leads a day in the early part of the investigation, credible tips have now dwindled to 3-5 each day.
The reward for information leading to Hailey's safe return is now $15,000.
