Hailey Dunn's disappearance from Colorado City has been featured on HLN's "Nancy Grace" four nights this week. Billie Dunn says some moments in the show have been difficult to watch and experience.
"It makes me mad. It frustrates me that ratings are more important to some people than my daughter being found," said Dunn.
Billie Dunn tells KTAB News that not everything that's been said on the show is entirely true.
"Anything bad that they can find on us, true or untrue, they put up there over and over and over again," said Dunn. "I just wish we would get back to this 13-year-old Hailey Dunn isn't in her house -- she's missing."
Dunn said she agreed to do the show to get Hailey's face out there. But now, it's gone in a completely different direction.
"It does scare me and it upsets me when I'm sitting on Nancy Grace and they say they're at the landfill with cadaver dogs," Dunn said. "That scares me. I do know law enforcement has told me, 'Billie, you'll be the first one that we tell if we get a big breakthrough in the case'."
Dunn said when most show broadcasts are over, she calls law enforcement "scared to death." Often, officers have to calm her down.
Colorado City's City Manager Pete Kampfer has told KTAB News that he'd likely know if there was a major development of that nature. He continues to tell KTAB News he can't confirm anything after previously labeling the search in Abilene "unsuccessful."
On Friday, Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs essentially said the report on Nancy Grace wasn't true.
"As far as I know, there's not anything that was found over there pertains to the investigation," said Toombs.
Sheriff Toombs also told KTAB News Thursday's searches in Colorado City and Snyder didn't turn up any evidence.
After learning the reports were inaccurate, Dunn says she's though twice about participating in the show. At one point during Wednesday's broadcast, she even walked out.
"I wish they could get back to the way the show was at first," said Dunn. "We were all looking for Hailey and all wanted information on Hailey."
Dunn says, either way, she'll continue to do whatever it takes to get her daughter's face in the media.
