A spokesman for the investigation into a missing 13-year-old West Texas girl says dogs searching one of three landfills turned up "possible" evidence in the case ? even as hope remains for her safe return.
Colorado City Manager Pete Kampfer declined to elaborate Tuesday on what was found or why the landfill in Abilene was searched in the disappearance of Hailey Dunn.
Kampfer confirmed to KTXS News Tuesday afternoon that the word "possible" must be included in the statement about evidence found.
He told KTXS News that "possible evidence" was found in the landfill searches, but authorities have not yet determined whether the "hits" previously reported could become evidence to be used in a trial.
Kampfer said searchers used cadaver dogs also in the Colorado City and Snyder landfills.
Hailey was reported missing Dec. 28 by her mother, Billie Dunn. The woman's boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, said he last saw Hailey a day earlier.
No one has been arrested. Adkins has been named a suspect in the case.
