Cecilia Garcia says she was shocked when Shawn Adkins, the live-in boyfriend of Hailey Dunn's mother, claimed Hailey was going to a slumber party at her family home on the night she disappeared.
"Obviously he's not telling the truth about her spending the night at Mary Beth's," said Garcia.
Garcia says at her house, it's not like these parties would happen out of the blue.
"Hailey has never spent the night here," she said.
Hailey lives just a few blocks down from Mary Beth, and four weeks later, Garcia says her daughter still hurts.
"It's been real hard on my daughter," she said, "and she fears for Hailey."
So much, that Mary Beth would not talk to us on camera.
"She fears for her own life also," Garcia explained.
Garcia says she'll never forget what it was like to see her daughter questioned by police and the FBI.
"I got to a point where I broke down too," she recalls, "and started crying with her."
For now, the only thing Mary Beth has left of Hailey are the writings Hailey left on this binder.
"My daughter is pleading that she might one day get a call from her or a text," said Garcia.
Hoping that the best friend she once heard from everyday will be home soon.
Garcia says on the day Hailey disappeared, Mary beth received a text message that said "what are you doing?"
She says the message was sent from Hailey's mother's cell phone at about 2 o'clock, which Hailey always used, but Garcia says she worries that there is no evidence to prove Hailey sent that message.
The Garcia family says authorities have taken that text message as evidence in the investigation.
