LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Billie Dunn feared the worst while her teenage daughter was missing for more than two years.
During a phone interview Tuesday, Dunn said she imagined 13-year-old Hailey Dunn being tortured or that she'd fallen victim to human traffickers. But possibly the most painful part was thinking of Hailey wondering why her mother and father hadn't found her.
The 36-year-old mother said she also considered that a "random weirdo" might have pulled off nearby Interstate 20 and abducted Hailey.
Dunn reported Hailey missing in December 2010 in Colorado City. Remains found at a West Texas lake in March were identified last month as those of Hailey.
No arrests have been made. Shortly after Hailey's disappearance, police called Dunn's live-in boyfriend a person of interest, but he has not been charged.
