Teams of searchers from the Klaas Kids Foundation and Laura Recovery Center will be going to Colorado City this weekend February 18-20 to conduct a new large-scale search for missing teen Hailey Dunn.
Local volunteers who were trained by the two groups have been conducting searches every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until dark.
Team Amber Rescue has also raised money to send a team for the search effort. This new group was created to honor 14-year-old Amber DuBois, who was abducted and killed by John Gardner, a registered sex offender, on February 13, 2009. Like many other missing teens, police deemed her a runaway, which limited the resources dedicated to finding her in those crucial first hours.
DuBois was found 13 months after she went missing after police arrested Gardner for kidnapping and murdering 17-year-old Chelsea King.
